All I Want for Christmas is at Target + Neiman Marcus

When I received the Target newsletter in my email with the subject line “Take A Peek: the Neiman Marcus + Target Collection” – I instantly felt warm all over. I took a peek. I started my Christmas wish list.

I’m the person who has all my gift shopping done by the end of November so I don’t have to be a part of the chaos in the stores the closer it gets to the end of the year; however, none of these items go on sale until the first of December, plus it’s a limited edition collection with limited quantities. Even though items can be purchased at both Target and Neiman Marcus stores and online at each outlet’s website, doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy to get what I want.

I remember the frenzy from the launch of Missoni in 2011 crashing Target’s website and throngs of people ransacking the stores buying anything and everything they could get their hands on. Thankfully, to ensure the madness doesn’t happen again Target and Neiman Marcus has put a limit on the number of the same item a person can purchase per transaction at five.

This collaboration is also for a good cause. Target and Neiman Marcus will donate $1 million to the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), an invitation only nonprofit trade association with 400 members who are leaders in the industry for jewelry, accessory, menswear and womanswear in the U.S.

Designers for this launch include: Alice + Olivia, Altuzarra, Band of Outsiders, Brian Atwood, Carolina Herrera, Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, Philip Crangi, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam Diane von Furstenberg, Eddie Borgo, Jason Wu, Judith Leiber, Lela Rose, Marc Jacobs, rag & bone, Robert Rodriguez, Rodarte, Skaist-Taylor, Thom Browne, Tory Burch, and Tracy Reese.
