Coming Soon to Target: Superga Sneakers

Target is partnering with the iconic sneaker brand Superga for a limited edition, exclusive collection. Two silhouettes and five styles will debut next week—all exclusive to Target—inspired by the classic Superga look, with a few updates: a lightweight canvas material to keep the sneaks easy and breezy for summer, a lower profile outsole and patriotic prints you can rock during those upcoming 4th of July festivities. Look for Superga for Target starting June 26th.

Clearance Alert: Marimekko Clothing

It looks like womens clothing from the Marimekko for Target collection has FINALLY gone on clearance. Online those items that are left (like this terrycloth dress) are marked down by 30%, but in stores I've seen it up to 70% off. Of course, by now it's pretty slim pickings as far size and style selections are concerned, but you may score something on the clearance rack if you're lucky.

Consumer Alert: Frozen Food Recall Includes Target

Nearly two months after CRF Frozen Foods set off a massive recall of vegetables thought to be contaminated with listeria and linked to at least two deaths and eight illnesses, a second frozen vegetable supplier — National Frozen Food Corp. — has initiated a separate recall over listeria concerns.

The National Frozen Food Corp. announced yesterday that it would voluntarily recall ready-to-eat frozen peas and mixed vegetables packaged for a variety of retailers after finding the products may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

“The frozen green peas and frozen mixed vegetables are being recalled as a precaution with the health and safety of consumers as top priority,” the company says in a statement. National Frozen Food Corp. initiated the recall after a sample tested by the company revealed that the finished products may potentially be contaminated with the bacteria.

The recalled products were sold under retailers’ store brands including Walmart’s Great Value and Target’s Market Pantry. Other affected brands include Bountiful Harvest, First Street, Live Smart, and Sprout.

The products were sold between September 2, 2015 and June 2, 2016. The recalled products can be identified by the date codes printed on the back of the retail sized bag or the side of the master case, and a list of the affected codes can be found here on Consumerist. Customers who purchased the vegetables should not consume the products and can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Fab Find: "Stuff" Canister

In the Bath Aisle at Target the other day I spied this adorable canister labeled "stuff". The one I saw was actually in white, but I thought the gray one would show up better here. They also have another version labeled "things" (again, in white or gray) and it struck me that these would make wonderful caddies to store your essentials anywhere in the house, not just the bathroom.

Clearance Alert: Select Rimmel Lipsticks

Today at Target I was delighted to see that selected shades of Rimmel's Moisture Renew Lipstick were on clearance, like the shimmery nude shown here called "Summer Angel".  If you're not familiar with this lipstick, it is very highly rated on Target.com for being lightweight, lasting, and moisturizing. I already own several, and today picked up this shade as well as a red hue called "Hot Lips".

This sale is limited to stores only (not on Target.com) with select shades marked down to $2.74 (regularly $5.49). I am wondering if the discounted shades are to be discontinued - ?
