Coming this Spring: Victoria Beckham for Target

ABC News reports that Victoria Beckham will be bringing her fashion sense to the masses.

The designer, former Spice Girl and mother of four just announced that she is teaming up with Target to bring a new line of her clothes to the retailer next Spring.

"For a while now, I have been thinking how great it would be to work on clothes for a customer that either doesn’t want to pay or can’t pay designer prices," Beckham said in a statement on "I loved the idea of opening the brand up to a wider audience and being able to share my vision with a broader customer base."

Victoria Beckham for Target will range in price from $6 to $70, with most items under $40. The collection will include more than 200 items for women including dresses, rompers, tops and bottoms -- as well as corresponding styles for girls, toddlers and babies. The new line marks Beckham's first foray into designing clothes for children.

"From the outset of my brand, I have always designed clothes that I want to wear, and that’s exactly what I have done here, but this time there are also clothes that my daughter would love to wear, too!" Beckham said. "Designing for children is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time."

The collection will be available April 9 through April 30 at all Target stores and on

Double-Take: Restoration Hardware vs. Threshold

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 have two charming brass desk lamps. While they are strikingly similar in looks, that's where  the comparison ends, as one is from Restoration Hardware and will set you back $599, whereas the other is by Threshold (at Target) and costs just $29.99. Which one is which? The answer appears in the comments section below.

Target halts clown-mask sales...

The Washington Post reports that Target will stop selling clown masks amid a rash of reported clown attacks — real and fake — that have terrorized the United States in recent months.

All of the company’s stores have pulled the masks “out of sensitivity for the issue at hand,” Target spokesman Joshua Thomas told the newspaper. Target has 1,799 stores in the United States, according to its corporate site.

The company also has stopped selling masks on its website. On Monday morning, searches for “clown masks” on turned up nothing. Links from search engines to clown masks that Target previously stocked simply led to a message that said “product not available.” Shown here is one mask that was previously for sale on but has now been pulled.

Clown costumes for children, oversize clown suits and “sexy clown” outfits are, however, apparently still available for sale. The retail giant’s decision, just two weeks before Halloween, comes as the frenzy over “creepy clown” sightings and threats has reached a fever pitch. And across the country, scary-clown rumors have led to school lockdowns and arrests.

Clearance Alert: Fall Home Decor & Tabletop

Also while at Target yesterday I noticed that all of the new Fall home decor and tabletop items are already on clearance at 50% off. They only put this merchandise out on the store floor a couple of weeks ago, so they must be trying to move it quickly to make room for holiday decor. The selection includes decorative plates, mugs, servingware, vases, candle holders, napkins and linens.

Clearance Alert: Beekman 1802 Farm Pantry

At Target this morning I noticed that all the Beekman 1802 Farm Pantry products were on clearance for 50-70%. I picked up a couple of things, like the Bean & Barley Soup Starter Mix and the Veggie Seasoning packs. I wonder, though, whether Target has discounted these items because they're phasing out the brand, or just to make room for more holiday food offerings - ?
