According to Don Burke, cut/trim/prune whatever-it-is when it's convenient.
Falling over sounds as though it might be moribund anyway. Mint-family (of which Lavender is one) are short-lived perennials. You need to keep replacing Lavender when it gets woody which it will sooner if it is not regularly pruned or later if it is. Not sure how the Lavender farms deal with that unless they have a programme of continuous plantings.
Anyway - if it needs a haircut, do it now! Put some semi-wood pieces aside and try and propagate them. Lavender takes some time to grow roots so be patient.
