Hello-Hello and welcome to a new week, we are forced to be brief once again, we are a bit swamped with business.
We begin with an early look at the upcoming collection for Le Boutique Targét, the first from its new “Shops at Target” program, showcasing design partnerships with small boutiques. The initial collection, The Webster at Target, is done in tandem with luxury boutique The Webster Miami.
The line launches May 6, photos of the collection were released last week. Pieces showcase iconic Webster themes, including the boutique’s banana leaf print wallpaper, as well as motifs reflecting Miami’s art deco architecture. You’ll also note there’s very much a resort, beachside feel to the styles.
Below left to right we see the Colorblock Cardigan ($32.99), Tank in Palm Print ($19.99) and Jacquard Skirt in Coral ($29.99), the Sleeveless Shift Dress in Two-Way Deco Print ($39.99) and Short-Sleeved Drawstring Dress in Melon ($36.99).
Good news for those who struggle to find appealing styles in either petites or plus sizes, both will be available online for this collection. Another appealing possibility from our friends at The Fashion Spot:
Since this collaboration is with a company that is likely to have more of a niche following than say, Missoni, you probably won’t have to fight with eBay vultures to get your hands on it.
Below we show some of the accessories, starting with bracelets in ‘Two-Way Deco Print’ and ‘Green Plaid,’ both $16.99.
Other jewelry includes the Sand Dollar Chandelier Earrings in Gold and Silver ($14.99 each) and Coral Strand Necklace with Sand Dollars ($34.99).
Two totes, the ‘Wall Paper Floral Print’ will retail at $29.99 and ‘Straw Tote in Palm Print’ will be $39.99.
Scarves in coordinating prints will be offered at $19.99.
Shoes will include these styles, the Cap-Toe Wedges in Melon/Gold ($29.99), Flats in Palm Print, $24.99 Tie Wedges in Palm Print, $29.99
Striped straw hats in navy and coral are going to be $19.99.
And, while the company has dabbled in offering a few of these items for men over the years, they’ve never quite hit the bullseye when it comes to making clothes guys would actually want to purchase.
Our other golf tidbit is also today’s Pretty in Pink. (You can imagine where this is going.)
On his way to a green jacket at the Masters, Bubba Watson could be seen with his pink Ping Driver.
You have to love a guy who uses pink clubs, especially when it is part of a fund-raising effort.
Mr. Watson hopes to raise $1,000,000 for various charities this season, Ping has already donated $10,000 to the cause.
