How To Shop Tabitha Brown for Target on June 11

When Target announces a new designer collaboration, I'm always excited and intrigued to see what they've got coming. This June, Target is teaming up with social media star, author, and actress Tabitha Brown for a joyful summer collection. Set your reminders for June 11, when Tabitha Brown for Target launches in stores and online. Get ready for topical prints, vibrant colors, cute swimwear, and adorable accessories. 

It's going to be a stylish season. I'm excited for summer just looking at this collection. There are perfect pieces for a beach/pool/lake day, gorgeous party-perfect dresses, and casual laid-back loungewear. This tie-back dress with puff sleeves has my name all over it, as does this tropical print tiered skirt which looks way more expensive than $32.

According to Target's pressroom, there will be "four limited-time-only collections that will launch over the next year, spanning apparel, swim and accessories, home and office, food and kitchenware, entertaining and more." #TargetTabCollab

With the first launch, we can expect to see more than 75 apparel, swim, and accessories items, ranging from XXS to 4X, with price points between $10 and $44.

The collection has a 14-day return policy and REDcard holders get an extra 30 days. Unfortunately, there is no international shipping.

The collection will be available in SELECT stores (not all stores), so call your stores to see if they'll carry it.

The In-Store Strategy

1. Know where to go.  Plan your shopping well in advance. Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth, and be ready to stand in a physically distanced line. 

2. Phone it in. Be extra prepared by calling your local store the week before the launch to confirm exactly where in the store it'll be located. It's helpful to know if it will all be merchandised together, or throughout the store. 

3. Be an early bird. You know what they say about the early bird, so be prepared. Stores open at 8am on launch days. I've found in the past that if I arrive by 7:30 am or earlier, then I'm able to get what I want due to decreased demand in my geographic region. For shoppers who live in large cities, I recommend going at least 1-2 hours before the store opens if you're really motivated to be the first to shop. For shoppers in more suburban or rural areas, the competition and crowds are reduced, but the selection of goods may be as well. In my experience, stock varies widely from store to store. 

4. Bring a buddy. A family member, friend, or significant other might be able to help you get the pieces you want and help you make purchasing decisions. Or even better, have a dedicated friend tackle one store while you visit another. "Divide and conquer" should be your strategy! Arrange to meet in line (while practicing physical distancing) or go to the store together so you're not cutting in line. 

5. Check for go-backs and barter. If your favorite pieces disappear from the racks in a flash, be courteous, be patient, and don't be afraid to chat with employees and other shoppers (from a distance) to politely trade to get what you want! Please respect the rules that they have in store. 

6. Persistence pays off. Target does not restock these collections, but you can still score your favorites. If you don't find what you want after the launch, check back for returns in the coming days, as many shoppers make returns. Don't forget to check the customer service desk and clearance racks for returns in October. After four or so weeks, the collection might be discounted to 30% (and eventually to 50% or 70%) off, so frequent visits to Target after the launch could really pay off. Call your local stores to ask what they have in stock or use social media to buy/trade/sell with others. #TargetTabCollab

The Online Strategy

1. Learn the lookbook. Study the lookbook carefully to select your favorites, get outfit inspiration, research the sizing, choose colorways, see online exclusives, set a budget, and check the prices. 

2. Play favorites. Make a list or collage of your favorites to help you stick to your budget and prioritize your potential purchases.

3. Know when and how to shop. Be extra prepared by using more than one web browser, mobile device, etc. Refresh, refresh, and refresh your browser often and have patience. I use Chrome for optimal performance. Expect some glitches and be persistent. Remember that patience is key. 

The collection goes live at midnight Pacific Time. Set an alarm if necessary, as some items will sell out within minutes.

4. Save your checkout info. As the time to shop online approaches, log onto target.com and have your checkout and payment details saved ahead of time. I've found that Chrome works best on my desktop computer. Clear your cart of any items in order to streamline the checkout process. This reduces the chances of having your cart emptied of any out-of-stock items before you can click the "complete order" button.

5. Click quickly. Shop your top pick(s) first and submit your order right after placing in your cart. Do not shop and fill up your cart. Why? Once an item is in your cart, it's not reserved for you. In order to avoid an item being removed from your cart because it's sold out, you need to click quickly and complete your order! That's why I create a prioritized wish list and try to buy my top picks first.

6. Multi-task. While shopping online, be extra prepared by using more than one web browser, mobile device, etc. Sometimes items become available first on the mobile site, and sometimes they don't. Sometimes some shoppers can see certain items while others cannot. Refresh your browser often and have patience. Items tend to pop up and then disappear during the initial launch. Expect some glitches but don't give up. Remember, persistence and patience are key, and you may have to sacrifice some sleep if you're really motivated to snag your favorites. 

7. Save your info and get a RedCard. If you don't have one already, then consider getting a RedCard. Why? Target RedCard users enjoy free shipping, an extra 30 days to return certain merchandise, and a 5% discount on purchases.
