i HIGHLY reccomend the Luella for Target totes. they have a couple of different patterns. i bought one today to go shopping with because i was so sick of my bag not closing...i got the most compliments on it of any bag i've EVER purchased. seriously, i was shopping down town portland at like saks and pioneer place and probably 80% of the SAs i interacted with said something about it. its really roomy and durable. best 20 bucks i've spent in a while! :smile:



you can order them at target.com.

ilzabet: I live in Portland and I've looked for the Luella stuff in every Target I've walked into and haven't seen a single item! Did you get your tote locally or online? It's very cute!

leah: i found it at the target at tannesbourne on 185th off hwy 26 in beaverton...you turn left at the first light after the ramp, then left again on evergreen where the barnes and noble is if you don't head to that end of town very often. :smile: they had a whole bunch, but they're over in the clothing department with the rest of the luella stuff not with the accessories like i expected. the luella display is after the swim suits and mossimo tees, but before isaac mitzrahi and cherokee. it's kind of surrounded by merona and some mossimo jeans/dresses. i had finally given up looking and i basically tripped over the display on my way over to isaac mitzrahi. :smile:

Well said ...cute bag doesn't need to worth a fortune.
I am running to Target and I bet those freak SA who work at Chanel will shock at my new cute bag.

No wonder I never found the bags! I was looking in the wrong department! lol

Lizabet: The very Target you're describing is the one I live closest to! How funny is that? Now I can make a beeline right for the bag when I get to the store. Probably tomorrow! :nuts:

Since Luella is only around for 90 days, it will be interesting to see what the next designer brings in.

What how cute! I love Target but even more now that Isaac Mizrahi and Luella jumped aboard.
