Mulberry for Target In Stores Today!

10 Oct

Like most of you, I have been eagerly awaiting the Target for Mulberry launch for the past several months.  I’ve had the launch date marked on my calendar since the GILT Groupe sale and I made a mental note to wake up early to check out the items in person on Monday, October 10.  Too bad October 10 is today and NOT Monday.  I’m not sure how I managed to get the days mixed up, but the mistake nearly caused me to miss out on all of the Mulberry for Target goodness.

Thankfully, I saw mention of the launch date online at around 8 a.m. this morning.  Unfortunately, by the time I visited the Target website, the bag I really wanted – the Medium Patent Satchel in Black – was out of stock.  After about 1.5 seconds of panic, I immediately looked up the numbers of all of the local Target stores and launched a fashion S.O.S.

Three stores and fifteen minutes later, a really nice team lead offered to hold one bag for me at the fitting room.  A record ten minutes later (it usually takes me an hour to get dressed on a good day), I was racing down the highway to claim my bag!  I was so relieved when I got to the store and saw the bag in person.  It’s smaller than I thought – more of a date night size for my personal taste – but it’s Mulberry for Target and I’m excited to have it.  I couldn’t resist buying a couple of additional bags for consideration.  The Large Denim Satchel in Blue is the perfect size for a laptop, and the Large Pebble Tote in Black could work as an everyday bag or a work tote.

Many of the styles are sold out online, but there are still some available at Target.com.  It also appears that some of the bags, specifically the Large Velvet Satchel in Black, will be available on November 14. This is the size and style that I’m most excited about, so I’ll be sure to set my reminder for the right day this time!

Did you have a chance to get to Target today?  Did you buy one of the Mulberry for Target bags?  Do you love it?!?

Mulberry for Target – New Images!

10 Sep

I stumbled upon new images of the Mulberry for Target collection on Nitrolicious this afternoon.  Seeing what appears to be the full collection makes me even sorrier that I missed out on the Gilt.com pre-sale.  I absolutely must have the medium black patent satchel.  Thankfully, I have a month to plan my acquistion strategy for these highly sought after bags.  Mulberry for Target will be available in stores on October 10.

Preview Target’s Fall Designer Collaborations This Friday on Gilt.com

16 Aug

Target has just announced a partnership with Gilt Groupe to bring us an exclusive, 36 hour shopping event.  Beginning Friday, August 20, select pieces from Target’s Fall designer collaborations with John Derian (decoupage home design), Tucker (super cute dresses) and Mulberry (uptown bags with a downtown flair) will be available on gilt.com.

This sale is particularly exciting for me as I die for Mulberry.  The Roxanne in Oak is perhaps my all time favorite bag.  I wasn’t able to purchase one of the Mulberry for Gap bags several years ago.  And to be honest, I wasn’t really excited about seeing such a classic silhouette produced in sweatshirt material.  The Mulberry collection for Target looks a lot more promising.  If you’d like to join me in taking advantage of this wonderful sale,  be sure to register on gilt.com and set a calendar reminder for Friday.  The sale begins at 12 p.m. EST.  I can’t wait!

Needs It: Mulberry Bayswater Clutch

19 Nov

By now, you should know that I love a good clutch and would buy one for every night out, if possible.  Since that’s not an option, I try to buy a new clutch for each season.  I haven’t found my Fall clutch just yet, but I am strongly considering the Mulberry Bayswater Clutch.  This oversize clutch is simple, but far from boring with loads of texture from the croc embossed suede print.  It comes with a detachable strap, but I kind of like it tucked in.  At $795, it’s an investment piece, but well worth the price.

Fall Bag Crush: Mulberry Daria Hobo

11 Jul

I know that I may have suggested that I didn’t plan on purchasing a new handbag in the near future/for the rest of the year but that was obviously before I saw Mulberry’s Fall lookbook.  I mean, when you find a handbag with all of your favorite characteristics – patent leather, braided handle, manageable size – it’s hard to say no!  Because I’m fiscally responsible, I’ll hold off on purchasing this bag…for now.  If you’re interested in purchasing this classic beauty, it’s available at Mulberry.com for $995.

Mulberry Spring Sale

21 May

Someone, please hold me back  There are so many great sales going on right now and I’m not that strong when it comes to resisting retail temptation.  The latest of the mid year sales is from Mulberry, makers of my first premier designer handbag crush, the Roxanne in Oak.  The Mulberry Spring Sale offers 10% off already reduced prices on select styles.  With the extra savings, the Bayswater, Shimmy and Mabel are all at accessible price points.

I’m strongly considering a Bayswater in Silver Cracked Metallic Leather.  Silver is a neutral which means the bag would be a practical choice, right?
