Fab Find: Room Essentials PIllowcase

Hate mornings? Then you might want to nab this cheeky pillowcase by Room Essentials with the mantra "I am not a morning person." It's just $3.99 at Target, on sale this week for 10% off. There's also another version with the motif "Dream On", as well as a cute open/shut eyes print.

Target Pulls Hampton Creek Products...

Consumerist reports that Target has reportedly pulled Hampton Creek products from its stores and even disabled cashiers’ ability to scan these items at checkout.The retailer has indicated that it involves concerns over safety, but it doesn’t appear to be isolated to just one issue or product line, which is why all of the company’s products are being pulled from stores and Target.com.

“Pending a full review, Target today started a market withdrawal of Hampton Creek products,” a company spokeswoman told Bloomberg Technology. It has received two separate sets of allegations: One about shoddy practices in a facility that produces Hampton Creek products, and another that some of the company’s products have tested positive for Salmonella and Listeria.

Target also says it has an unconfirmed tip that raises questions about Hampton Creek’s labeling practices. Someone alerted the retailer that products may be described inaccurately as being free of genetically modified ingredients. Other items may contain allergens, like honey, that aren’t on the label. Again, Target stressed that these are not confirmed allegations, but the chain is acting on them because of their specificity and seriousness.

Fab Find: Dollar Aisle Dishtowels

Target usually rolls out seasonal/holiday themes for their selection of Dollar Aisle dishtowels. In the middle of plenty of patriotic 4th of July ones, I found these clever "Farmers Market" themed towels the other day. As a farmers market devotee, I may just have to buy these! Just $3 for a pack of 2.

Armed Robber Forces Family To Go Shopping At Target...

Consumerist reports that a North Carolina family went on a very scary shopping trip on Tuesday, after Durham police say a man knocked on their door to ask for money, and then forced them at gunpoint to take him shopping at Target.

ABC-11 reports that the suspect knocked on the door of a house around 7 a.m. and asked for money. One of the residents gave him some, but then the man allegedly showed a gun and ordered the parents and their two kids into their car. He’s accused of forcing the man to go to an ATM and take out money, then to a convenience store, before directing him to drive to Target. Once there, he allegedly made the victims enter the store with him, and had them buy a bunch of clothing and gift cards.

One of the victims was able to alert a worker in the store who called 9-1-1. Police officers happened to be in the store’s parking lot when the call came through, and arrested the suspect without incident.

The suspect has been charged with several counts of second-degree kidnapping and robbery with a dangerous weapon in this incident, and has also been charged with committing a string of other armed robberies and kidnapping in the past few days. In one of those incidents, he also allegedly forced victims to withdraw money and drive him to a convenience store.

Fab Find: Novelty Pool Floats

In the kids' section at Target (near the Cat & Jack clothing displays) I found these adorable novelty pool floats. You can choose from an ice pop or a rocket motif - both in festive red, white and blue - and just $14.99 each.

Target Rolls Out BTC Merchandise...

It's the first day of Summer, and we've barely finished graduation season. But that hasn't stopped Target from rolling out their BTC (Back to College) merchandise in stores, with everything you need to outfit your dorm room or small living space. You can also find a full selection of BTC stuff here on Target.com.  Unfortunately, making room for all the BTC items also means that most of Target's home decor offerings will disappear from stores for a while. So now's the time to snap up decor by Threshold and Nate Berkus as it goes on clearance to make way for rows of storage cubes and lounge chairs.

Last Chance for VBxTarget....

A friend told me that an employee at her local Target store said the Victoria Beckham for Target merchandise would be cleared out of stores on June 18th. Sure enough, a quick check of my store yesterday showed that all the remaining pieces on clearance had disappeared from the racks. So if you still had your heart set on something from this line, you can try to find it on Target.com, where there are still some deals to be found. This plus-sized scallop tank top (shown) is a steal at just $7.80 (regularly $26).

Target and Cartwheel apps to merge...

Starting this Summer, Target’s mobile app strategy will undergo a significant change. TechCrunch reports that Target will soon combine the functionality of its Cartwheel savings app with its main shopping app in preparation for an eventual Cartwheel shutdown. The Target app will also receive a notable upgrade this year, adding support for an indoor map that shows your location in the store, along with the nearby Cartwheel deals, in addition to support for mobile payments.

According to Target, the decision to merge its apps into one is a result of customer feedback. Shoppers wanted an easier way to access all of what Target has to offer from one destination, not two. You can read more details here on TechCrunch.

Fab Find: Bright Stripe Placemats

The other day at Target I found these festive, bright-striped placemats by Threshold. The needle-stitched variegated stripes in citrusy hues almost look handmade. Best of all, I scored them on clearance for just $1.48 each (regularly $4.99).

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Sale Alert: Patio Furniture

Target is running an extra 15% off all patio furniture with the code HOME at checkout on Target.com. That means that this cute Halsted 5-piece small space wicker set - already on sale for $339 (from $399) - is an extra $51 off. And if you use your Target RedCard, you can save another 5% off of that! One hitch: some items are already sold out online, but you can still get the discount with 'store pickup' if the item is available at a store near you.

New at Target: RXBAR

There's a new brand of protein bars hitting the shelves at Target. RXBARs contain minimal ingredients with no added sugar, gluten, dairy or soy, in yummy varieties like Blueberry (shown), Maple Sea Salt, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Sea Salt, Peanut Butter Chocolate and Chocolate Chip. There's also an RXBAR Kids line with fruity flavors like Berry Blast and Apple Cinnamon Raisin. Just $5.99-6.99 per box (or $1.99 per bar) at Target and Target.com.

Fab Find: Threshold Copper Planter

I found these stunning copper planters by Threshold on clearance at Target yesterday. The copper liner is removable (for cleaning) from the wood frame. Online they're a bit more, but in stores the medium and small sizes were 50% off. As I was leaving the home decor section, I also noticed a large (20" tall) size.

The Look for Less: Serena & Lily vs. Threshold

As we head into Summer, natural fibers such as raffia, rattan and jute are abundant in home decor. I've especially seen this trend in placemats and tablerunners. Here we have two such examples. On the left is a round rattan placemat from Serena & Lily, which will set you back a whopping $28 each. But you can get the same look with the jute placemat on the right from Threshold (at Target) for just $4.99 each. Think about it: you could get 5 of the Threshold ones for less than the price of just ONE from Serena & Lily!

Target to start playing music in stores...

Ever notice that Target doesn't play music in their stores? According to Consumerist, that may change soon, as The Bullseye is planning to pump music through the sound system at some stores.

Playing music in stores is a departure for Target, as the retailer historically subscribed to the thought that music would distract customers from shopping. But The Minneapolis Business Journal reports that Target has been testing music in about 65 stores and plans to expand that system to 115 more stores this year.

A spokesperson tells the Business Journal that by the end of the year 180 stores will be not-quite-blasting playlists of music that is “upbeat, positive and has playful personality.” The music is likely intended to provide customers another unique in-store shopping experience they can’t find at other retailers, analysts say.

But I SAY - as do many others, per Consumerist's online poll (shown here) - keep Target quiet! I enjoy the silence, and find piped-in music annoying.

The Look for Less: Lord & Taylor vs. Who What Wear

A friend sent me the inspiration for this latest post. Both of these plus-sized chambray dresses have a fun boho vibe, with accent embroidery and tassel trim. The one on the far left is from Lord & Taylor and will set you back $54, which is not bad considering it's on sale from $120.  But you could save a few more bucks with the option on the right from Who What Wear (at Target) which costs just $39.99.

Ivanka Trump Wears VBxTarget...

Looks like Ivanka Trump is a fan of Tar-shay. Who knew?! The Daily Mail spotted the 35-year-old special advisor (and First Daughter) to President Trump stepping out in a $35 dress from Target on Monday. The simple black dress with a ruffled bottom and two lilies is from the recent Victoria Beckham for Target designer collab. And it’s actually on sale right now for $17.50 on Target's website - possibly cheaper if you can find it in store, where the VB line has been marked down to 70% off.

Sunday, June 4, 2017

The Look for Less: Birkenstock vs. Sam & Libby

Target is mimicking Birkenstock again, as they've done in the past. You could get the 'real thing' (shown on the right) with the 'Papillio Gizeh' from Birkenstock, but it'll set you back almost $95. Or you can opt for a very similar colorful print footbed sandal (at left) from Sam & Libby (at Target) for only $27.99.

Fab Find: Greenroom Eco Summer Motif Notecards

At Target yesterday I noticed the cutest notepaper by Greenroom Eco. As shown here, each of the three designs boast a summer-themed motif: gold flamingos on turquoise paper, gold pineapples on pink paper, and gold whales on navy paper. I had to chuckle, as the whales reminded me of the Vineyard Vine logo, and the pineapples look identical to the ones Tommy Bahama uses on their flip flops.

I can't find this stationery on Target.com, but in stores they're just $6.99 each for a box of 24 notecards.

Friday, June 2, 2017

The Look for Less: West Elm vs. Threshold

I'm always on the hunt for interesting side tables that are a cut above the standard boxy style. These two barrel-shaped, carved wood examples fit the bill, with the one on the left from West Elm costing $249. That's not bad, but you could get a similar look - and save a lot of $ - with the one on the right from Threshold (at Target) which only costs $69.99 (and is currently on sale for even less - just $55.99).

Sale Alert: Nate Berkus Throw Pillows

Regular readers of my blog know I'm a HUGE Nate Berkus fan. And right now, there's some terrific Nate Berkus for Target pillows on sale. These tassel-trimmed beauties are just $19.99 each (regularly $24.99). Plus, you an get an extra 10% off online when you use the code JUNE at checkout.

Fab Find: Dollar Aisle Men's Socks

Yesterday in the Dollar Aisle at Target I found these whimsical men's socks, which would be perfect as a little gift for Father's Day. Among the styles I saw (shown here) were a mustache print, a pizza slice pattern, and a nuts/bolts motif. And at just $3 each, you can afford to get Dad multiple pairs!

New at Target: POPTIMISM!

Target has a new array of party supplies and accessories (like beach towels and totes) called POPTIMISM! Shown here the Summer Fun Collection, with fun pop-art summer motifs like watermelon slices, hot dogs, hamburgers and ice cream cones. They also have a Classic American Collection - in patriotic red, white and blue - that would be perfect for Memorial Day or The 4th of July.

Double-Take: LOFT vs. Who What Wear



It's time for another double-take, where we take one item from Tar-shay and match it up against a lookalike - yet pricier - designer piece. Today we're focusing on ruffles, which are certainly having a fashion moment. While I've seen ruffles mostly on tops and dresses, they're starting to show up on skirts as well, like these two examples here. Except one of them is from LOFT and will set you back $69.50, while the other is from Who What Wear (at Target) and costs just $29.99. Which one is which? The answer appears in the comments section below.

Fab Find: Dollar Aisle Totes & Bags

A few weeks ago I found this awesome beach tote in the Dollar Aisle at Target for just 5-bucks! With rope handles and colorful tassel, it looks a LOT more expensive than it is. And for $3, I threw in the matching makeup bag. These came in a variety of colors and patterns, but alas, I think they're mostly sold out by now.

Thursday, May 18, 2017

The Look for Less: Modernica vs. Threshold

Adding houseplants to your decor - be it real or 'faux' - is an easy way to update a room. Now you could splurge on the floor planter on the left (by Modernica) for just under $150, but you'd have to add your own plant. Or you could opt for the Threshold version on the right (at Target) for just $59.99, which comes with it's own faux snake plant. Both glazed ceramic planters with metal stands are approx. 23" tall.

Consumer Alert: Honest Company Baby Wipes Recalled

Uh oh... for the second time this year, an Honest Company baby product is being recalled due to quality issues. In January, it was their Organic Baby Powder, and this time, it's their Baby Wipes. Up until recently, these were sold at Target, but they've since been pulled and the product is listed as "not available" online.

CBS News reports that the Honest Company is recalling certain lots of their baby wipes because of a possible mold contamination problem. In a video on their website, company co-founder Christoper Gavigan explained the problem.

"Recently it came to our attention during routine quality testing that certain lots of our wipes were not meeting out high standards," said Gavigan. "A recent quality audit concluded that there is the potential for the presence of mold in certain lots of our wipes resulting in staining. The aesthetics are unacceptable and we believe any of the affected products are not likely to cause adverse health consequences."

The company has set up an online tool to help customers figure out if their wipes were part of the recall. Those who bought the affected wipes may return them to the store where they bought them for a full refund. Consumers with questions can call the company, Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific time, at 888-862-8818.

Fab Find: Mossimo Tie-front Tee

This morning I went online to see if my new favorite Mossimo tee - with a cute tie-front detail - came in any other colors besides black and white (which I had already nabbed at my local Target store). And lo and behold, it also comes in red (as shown here). Even better, Target.com is running a deal this week for 20% off select Mossimo clothing, making this cute top just $11.99 (regularly $14.99).

Coming Soon to Target: Casper

Casper - the company known for disrupting the sleep industry and shipping obsessively-engineered mattresses right to your door - is coming to Target. In just three years, they’ve built a cult following of happy sleepers by reimagining sleep from the ground up. Their award-winning research and development team creates everything from mattresses and bases (sans box springs) to airy sheets and a unique pillow-in-a-pillow, and they’ve earned some serious accolades along the way.

According to A Bullseye View, by teaming up with Target, Casper will be able to reach even more soon-to-be-happy sleepers.

“Since our launch online three years ago, we’ve seen a huge demand from customers who want to experience the Casper brand in person,” says Philip Krim, CEO and co-founder of Casper. “Partnering with Target allows us to bring Casper products directly to consumers in-store on a national scale. Target shares our mission of championing sleep as an essential pillar of wellness, as well as our pursuit of an unparalleled customer journey.”

Casper hits Target's website (with select products in some stores) on June 18, but in the meantime, you can preview the selection here on Target.com

Fab Find: Dollar Aisle Party Products

The other day in the Dollar Aisle at Target I spied these adorable paper plates and napkins (shown). Sporting a flamingo motif in pink and green, they'd be perfect for your next backyard BBQ. They also had drink caddies, straws, placemats, and other partyware in the same fun prints, just $1-3 each.

Target's 360°-styled shopping experience...

Ever fall in in love with a gorgeous sofa you spied online—but can’t quite picture how it’d look in a real room with all the accents, from pillows and throws to the perfectly proportioned wall hangings? Then try Target's new 360-degree shopping tool with special effects straight out of the movies.

According to A Bullseye View, Target's new virtual reality-like shopping experience on Target.com allows you to view 3 different curated living room looks: modern, farmhouse, mid-century or traditional. Then browse over 140 featured products — from rugs and sofas to wall hangings and decorative throws—in a virtual living room designed to help guests visualize size and scale of items and provide some tips on styling. And voilĂ : your perfect find is just a couple clicks away from being in your cart.

Target raises minimum free shipping threshold...

Consumerist reports that while Amazon just recently dropped its free shipping minimum from $35 to $25, Target has made the baffling decision to go in the opposite direction, raising its minimum required purchase for free shipping to $35. The company told CNBC it increased its free shipping threshold on Sunday, joining Walmart at the $35 level.

“Target regularly reviews and adjusts our online shipping policies and practices to better serve guests and enhance our business” the retailer said in a statement. The change won’t affect Target REDcard credit or debit cardholders, who will continue to get free shipping with no minimum purchase requirement.

The retailer first offered free shipping for a minimum of $50, but then dropped that threshold to $25 in Feb. 2015. At the time, it was cheaper than Walmart or Amazon. This move is confusing, as Target has been trying desperately to play catch-up to Amazon. Case in point: just yesterday, the company announced it would be testing next-day deliveries for pantry and household items.

It seems counterintuitive, then, to require shoppers to spend more money to get the same free shipping they could get elsewhere with a lower minimum purchase threshold. However, Target says that just “a small percentage of Target.com purchases are less than $35, so the majority of orders will continue to ship for free.”

Fab Find: Baby Rash Guard

How cute is this? This pint-sized rash guard by Cat & Jack with the clever quote is just $7.99. Of course, since babies can't surf, I'm not sure a baby actually needs a rash guard, but I guess it could be worn as swimwear instead.

Fab Find: Dollar Aisle Grad Cards

The Dollar Aisle at Target has an awesome selection of graduation cards, as shown here.  The tag says they are handmade, and most have metallic or glitter trim. Best of all, they're just $1 each, which is great as I have a lot of grads to send cards to this year!


My Victoria Beckham for Target score...

As I mentioned last week, we're closing in on the 30-day return window for the Victoria Beckham for Target (that's IF you used your Target RedCard). That means more items hitting the clearance racks, and a better chance of finding that elusive item you've been looking for.

I got lucky yesterday and happened to find the coveted (and sold out) bee scarf at my local store yesterday. It must have just been returned, as there wasn't a clearance sticker on it yet. I'm so glad I found it, as I've regretted not getting another one on launch day (when I snagged one for my best friend and one for my mom, but not one for myself). So keep checking back, readers! Most Target stores I've been to recently seem to be moving all the VB stuff near front of the store - perhaps to get more foot traffic? - and are lumping all the women's/girl's/toddler & baby sizes together.

Fab Find: Threshold Faux Mohair Throws

This week, Target has their Threshold "faux mohair" throw blankets on sale for just $20 - $22.49 each (regularly $29.99) in a variety of colors and patterns. I bought this plaid one several months ago to drape over my couch, and I absolutely love it. [I also have the matching throw pillows, but those seem to now be sold out online].

Back at Target: Oh Joy! First Aid Kit

For the second year in a row, Target has tapped Oh Joy! to design their annual first aid kit promotion. You can either buy the bag outright (for $5.99) or get the bag "free with purchase" when you buy 3 select health care products in stores or via Target.com. Last year's design was a pretty pastel pattern and this year's (shown here) is in a bright splatter print.

Fab Find: Seas the Day Shirt

While walking past the boy's department yesterday in Target I spied this adorable shirt. As part of a nautical display, this fun crewneck proclaims "Seas the Day". I couldn't find it online, but it's from Cat & Jack and as I recall it was under $10.

VB for Target hits the clearance racks...

As my fellow blogger The Recessionista posted over the weekend, the racks at Target are overflowing with returns from the Victoria Beckham for Target collab. After initial brisk sales on launch day, my local Target had scaled back to just one crammed rack. But after a couple of weeks, they had to add more racks to accommodate all the returns. And now - as shown here - the collab has been marked down to 30% off, both in stores and online.

This pic is from a store near my work, and I only saw women's wear - whereas my local store was piling all the returns (women's, baby and girl's) together  So if you're looking for the kids or baby stuff, check those separate departments. Of the women's items, I saw lots of the pale pink and mint green lace, the bold black/white prints, and the bright orange and pink - all in a variety of sizes.

Sadly, I expect this collab to face further markdowns, as it's just not moving. Plus, I expect even MORE returns, as customers who purchased items with their Target RedCard have up until May 9th (30 days after the line's debut) to return items (vs. the regular return window of 14-days for designer collabs).

Fab Find: Dollar Aisle Hand Cream

Target's Dollar Aisle is currently stocking these cute hand creams. With bright packaging and yummy varieties like Raspberry Sugar and Coconut Water, they're just 3-bucks each. But wait, there's more! The fun fragrances also come in bar soaps, wrapped in heavy paper in the same pretty prints.

Monday, April 24, 2017

Fab Find: Tropical Drink Floatie

In the Dollar Aisle at Target this past weekend I found this fun inflatable drink floatie in a pineapple motif. At just $3 each, these would make a fun addition to a pool party. I also saw them in a pink flamingo shape.

Target Tries "Cart Stoppers"...

Remember Kmart's "Blue Light Specials"? They were surprise moments when a store worker would light up a mobile police light and offer a discount in a specific department of the store, while announcing the discounted special over the store's public address system. Well Target is now trying a tamer version of this sales tactic called "Cart Stoppers". As shown here, I've started to see these signs show up in store, especially on larger items like patio sets. What struck me about this sign, though, is that it isn't very helpful, as it doesn't say what the regular price of the item is, so you can't tell what sort of "deal" you're getting.

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Double-Take: Jack Rogers vs. Sam & Libby

It's time for another double-take, where we take one item from Tar-shay and match it up against a lookalike - yet pricier - designer piece. Thanks to The Budget Babe for first spying this dupe. One of these gold boho thong sandals is by Jack Rogers (at Nordstrom) and will set you back $117.95. The other is by Sam & Libby (at Target) and costs just $24.99. Which one is which? The answer appears in the comments section below.

Target's Car Seat Trade-in Event...

This week, all of Target's car seats are on sale. Plus, you can get an extra 20% off your new car seat purchase when you bring in an old car seat in to be recycled. Look for the big recycling bin near the customer service desk at your local Target store.

Friday, April 21, 2017

Fab Find: Gilded Birthday Candles

In the Dollar Aisle at Target the other day I found these lovely gilded birthday candles. Dipped in gold and more than double the length of regular birthday candles, they'd add the perfect touch to your favorite cake. Best of all, they're just $3 for a pack of 12.

Coming Soon to Target: Pacifica Suncare

Pacifica - the cruelty-free skincare & beauty line Target started carrying a few years ago - has expanded the brand’s offerings to include sun protection. Pacifica Suncare is a Target-exclusive assortment that marries UVA and UVB protection with the elevated and potent powers of caffeine and probiotics in its sunscreens, face shades, bronzers and balms.

Each of the Pacifica Suncare products feature all-mineral SPF formulas, including the first mineral SPF 50 spray to hit the market. The products are water -resistant for up to 80 minutes, include no chemical UV absorbers and stay true to Pacifica’s mission of being vegan and cruelty-free. Plus, unlike some mineral sunscreens that leave your skin looking dry and chalky, the Pacifica team concocted a mineral sunscreen formula that not only works but makes your skin look fresh and radiant. Pacifica Suncare will be exclusively available at Target and on Target.com on May 14 for prices ranging from $3.99 - $15.99.

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Fab Find: Mari Mi California Collection

The other day on an endcap in the Stationery section at Target I spied a whole collection of Mari Mi merchandise with a "California" theme. It included mugs, wall art, greeting cards, and my favorite of the bunch: this state-shaped cutting board (shown here). At just $14.99 each, this would make a fun hostess or housewarming gift.

Victoria Beckham X Target: My Take

I did not plan to shop the Victoria Beckham for Target collab in person on launch day, but my BFF texted me early yesterday morning and convinced me to meet her at her local Target store. I'm glad I did, as I was able to get the elusive bee print scarf, which was one of the first items to sell out online. [Side note: there are currently over 120 of these scarves on eBay at highly inflated prices].

I also got a couple of other things, but I'm afraid they'll be going back due to sizing issues. This dress (shown) was a popular item, but unfortunately it looked like a flour sack on me. On the flipside, the dress I showed in yesterday's post seems to run small, so I'm glad I purchased a larger size online. The tops also seemed to run large - at least on me - which surprised me as usually the sizing in these designer collabs run small.

I will say that I was impressed with both the price points of this line (which seemed to run a bit lower than past collabs) and with the quality/construction. I didn't see loose strings, uneven stitching or other telltale signs of shoddy workmanship as I've noticed in past designer collabs. And the kids & baby clothes are absolutely adorable - those are the items that I'm sure will go fast.

All that said, I don't think this line will be a sellout. When we arrived at the store yesterday, there were already about 12 people in line. Once inside, we were part of at least two dozen women "swarming" the racks, and from the comments I overheard, most people were avoiding the "Wednesday Adams Dresses"  and almost the entire English Lace collection (in Blush and Mint Green).  An exception was the fun navy/white sweatshirt, but overall shoppers didn't seem to gravitate towards the ultra pale pastels.

Victoria Beckham X Target: What Did You Buy?

Whether or not the Victoria Beckham for Target collab will be a sellout remains to be seen, but I can report that I had NO PROBLEM ordering everything I wanted at about 6:15 Pacific Time this morning. In addition to this dress (shown) I also bought 3 tops.

While the Target.com site didn't seem to have any issues this time around, reports from the Mirror indicate that UK fans had heaps of trouble ordering from VictoriaBeckham.com. Online shoppers reported the site kept crashing and the checkout function kept failing.

How about you, readers? Did you order online, and if so, were you successful? Or did you brave the store to see the collab in person today?
