Liberty of London for Target finds

So I jumped on the bloggy band-wagon and checked out the new Liberty of London collection at Target. First, there are still a lot of items available at my area Targets. I guess Texas/South Texas doesn’t get the whole preppy print vibe.

It was a lot of fun going around the store finding the LoL items. Once I realized a butterfly was hanging over the collection around the store I would head straight there. Ooooh, butterfly…ooooh, butterfly – I did this in the two stores I went to.

Originally, I had purchased the The Tunic Swim Cover-up in Multi-color Royal but I returned it along with the Silk Tie in Cars Cream. I bought that for The Boy but he didn’t like it.

I wasn’t sure about the Ruffle Neck Top in Turquoise Isis so I passed in the first store but bought it in the second store yesterday.

I also purchased the Double-Strap Dress in Mauverina. I tried on the 4, which fit like a glove, and the 8, which was a looser fit but good. I really need the 6 in this dress so I’ll keep it and keep looking.

I bought the tie in Glen Jade Navy for The Boy. Hope he likes it better than the cars.
I bought the Men’s Floral Shirt in Navy in a Small for me. I really liked the print of it. 
I found this cute little bag in the Children’s section.

I also bought one of each of the Set of 3 Mini-Journals.
And I also purchased two candles, after having broke one of them in the store…in front of a sales associate. I was mortified. The candle just slipped right out of the top sleeve and out of my hands.

There were still lots of bowls, teapots, piggy banks, plates, cups, trays, linens (I loved the linens!), clothing, accessories in the two stores I went to. I’m sure that is the same for all of them here in my area. I am pretty happy with my purchases and know I’ll get a lot of use out of the mini-journals. I’m going to wear the Ruffle Neck Shirt today, since it is green and will be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. If I have the time I’ll take an IRL.
Enjoy your LoL goodies!!!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    My Target was the same way! I was there on Sun. and I seemed to be the only one interested in LoL… the SAs still hadn't put all the merch out by 10 am and looked at me like I was crazy for asking about it 🙂 I'm wearing my ruffle LoL shirt today, but that's the only clothing I bought. I wish there were more cotton pieces, bc I know I won't be able to wear poly in the summer here without melting…

    LT – Poly and TX is not a good combination. I don't look great in the halter style tops but the Peacock Ruffle Neck top covers my problem areas. And I love the print so I had to try it.

    I liked the one-piece jumpers too (black and white print) but they were WAY too long on me. Hemming would just mess up the flow of the print.

    The turquiose peacock shirt was the only item our target was out of and of course what I wanted. We still had plenty of the double strap dresses though and they still had a couple in size 6 if you're interested!

    What material is the peacock ruffle neck top made of? I don't remember seeing it in our local store (which isn't surprising)…. I am a huge sucker for a peacock print, so of course I am drawn to it!

    MrsLifeAccounts – Thanks! I have two more stores to check tomorrow but I may let you know.

    Dave and Jenn – It's 100% Polyester. It's a great print.
