Hello-Hello, and welcome to a busy Thursday here at the Prepatorium. Today’s post is very brief, once again we face too much office work and too little time for bloggage. Sigh.
We begin with something that surprised us the last time we were at Le Boutique Targét, take a look at the company’s in-store marketing campaign:
The “It’s All About Preppy Looks” message is seen on signage throughout the children’s department, but when shopping online one doesn’t find much merchandise described as “preppy”. When doing a search on the retailer’s website for anything “preppy” only five items are returned for that search term.
It doesn’t mean the pieces the company is pushing as ‘preppy’ in-store aren’t available online, shoppers will just need to know what they are looking for by style. (We don’t think that’s much of an issue for TPP readers, not too many of us shop for clothing by that search term.) It’s more of a lack of merchandising coordination, something Target is usually much better at.
Other Collection styles are shown below, the Double-Faced Cashmere Popover and the Albertus Swanepoel Fedora at $178. (Mr. Swanepoel is the gentleman doing a collaboration with Target later this year; click here for more on that topic.)
Here is the Capelette Peacoat, $350.
And the Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater.

“When you hear the word “preppy,” a few things immediately come to mind: pearl necklaces, penny loafers, and characters like Blane and Steff from Pretty in Pink. In other words, it conjures up a look that hasn’t been wildly popular since the ’80s—until now.”
More from the story:
Whether it’s a pair of nautical-chic wedges or a polished plaid dress, these handpicked items will freshen up your mid-season wardrobe without breaking the bank, so feel free to shop today’s Under $100 story sans stress. Whatever you buy, just know that Muffy would definitely approve…
We do like the ASOS Checked Dress with Bow Belt, it runs $78.
This one makes for an interesting read. While not everything shown in the story equates to a ‘preppy style,’ we are fans of the Who What Wear approach.
G’bye until next time!
