Welcome to a special edition of Don’t Dillydally in honor of the Saturday, September 14, release of Target’s 20th Anniversary Design for All Collection. First off, perusing the wares was like taking a trip to my early 20s — when, as a young editor at Paper magazine, my colleagues would take “orders” from us before heading to the press previews, go wild, and return with bags and bags of cardigans, beach towels, and sweater dresses that they doled out to us like Santa Claus. I’ve lost track of a lot of my loot (where, oh where, did my striped Jason Wu for Target dress go?), but I still wear my Missoni for Target cardigan (it’s the one Cate Blanchett’s character wears throughout Blue Jasmine!) on a biweekly basis. The goods go on sale this Saturday, and we imagine that pretty much the whole shebang will sell out within minutes (at least the good stuff), so we’ve rounded up the things we’re particularly excited about, and the pages you may want to bookmark.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
