Spring 2013 Kid Fashion at Target

As with most things parenting-related, clothes shopping for kids is an evolution. When my babies were little and had no ability to object, they wore anything I put on them. I was in my element. I would spend hours at the mall, perusing the kids’ stores, watching for sales in all my favorite brands, dressing my little ones up like paper dolls. It was practically a full-time job, and one that I took very seriously. 

But you know how it goes. They got older and developed opinions.

The little girls that used to happily wear smocked dresses and big grosgrain hair-bows now prefer the latest in leggings and sequins. The precious little boy who used to go to preschool decked out in hand-knit sweaters and wide-wale corduroys now goes to middle school wearing athletic apparel (that he may or may not have slept in.)

Shopping for their clothes has ceased to be a treasured pastime and instead has become another errand in the list of things that must be done.

Rather than spending hours at the mall, I tend to shop online or pick up their clothes when I’m doing other errands. The kids’ clothing section at Target, so conveniently located on my way to the household and beauty products, has become my go-to resource for basic wardrobe essentials. (Such as this Cherokee Girls’ Strappy Tank — I think both girls have one in every color!)

And with their reasonable price point, I don’t want to cry when my kids bust a hole in the knee of a pair of pants or dribble chocolate down the front of a brand new blouse.

As a Target Inner Circle member, I was invited to go on a shopping spree at Target for new spring kids’ clothes . . . and not a moment too soon! Now that winter is nearing its end (or so they say) my kids clothes are beginning to look tired and worn. Being kids, they do take a toll on their clothes. Everything is faded and stained; pants are getting too short, and shirts are getting too tight. We’re all eager to trade skinny jeans for maxi dresses and sweatshirts for short sleeves.

So one sunny Saturday last month, my older daughter and I set out for a “girls’ day out” and I let her pick out some fresh new clothes for spring.

At 10, clothes shopping is becoming more and more of a challenge. So many stores have resorted to flimsy materials and tacky graphics. While my daughter is often drawn to those looks, I can usually steer her in a direction that I can tolerate, and we both leave happy. SCORE!

I have heard complaints about quality and style at Target’s kids’ department in the older sizes, but I actually have pretty good luck there shopping for my 10-year-old. I particularly do well in the warmer months because my girls love dresses, and I find Target’s selection to be quite extensive. We also get a lot of tops there at all times of year, although their pants don’t fit us so well. The exception to that is their leggings. My younger daughter practically lives in those!

This year I was quite pleased with their selection in the bigger kid sizes. Like, look at this rack. I love these little skirts with the denim jackets.

I got one of these outfits for each of my daughters. They prefer to wear them with cardigans, although I thought the denim jackets were super cute.

Cherokee Girls’ CardiganCherokee Girls’ Strappy Tank, Cherokee Girls’ Skirt

My 10-year old is a dress girl, and she was in heaven in the Target Girls’ department.

Here are a few things we brought home on our shopping spree.

Cherokee Knit Woven Dress

This little number is one of both of our favorites. She wore it for Easter with sheer hose and black patent pumps.

Cherokee Sleeveless Dress

And she can’t wait to start wearing these maxi dresses. She lives in these types of dresses during the summer months.

Circo Girls’ Maxi Dress and Circo Girls’ Maxi Dress

(They don’t waste time coming up with clever names for their products, do they?? LOL!)

We got quite a few other pieces too, but my little models soon tired of the fashion shoot.

I stocked up on these basketball shorts for my son. He wears those to school and basically everywhere but church 10 months out of the year. When he’s not wearing those, he’s wearing a variation of these C9 by Champion athletic pants.

I do get him into khakis and a collared shirt for church, but otherwise he  looks ready for the basketball court. Thank goodness for Target prices, because those pants take a beating.

Target is also my go-to store for kids’ swimwear. They always have cute styles and they wear quite well. We have several that have seen it through both my daughters’ for several years each. I picked up one for each of their Easter baskets this year.

Xhilaration Girls’ 1-Pice Swimsuit, Xhilaration Girls’ 1-Piece Ruffled Swimsuit, Cherokee Boys’ Ombre Swim Trunk

They also make cute coverups!

I’m overall very pleased with the kids’ clothes we’ve bought at Target over the years. I think they do a good job at finding a good marriage of quality and price point. They lack some of the details of higher priced brands, but that is to be expected. They hold up to wash and wear, and they have styles that all of my kids (and I) can appreciate.

And now, Free Shipping!

I also love that Target now offers free shipping on orders of $50 or more. I didn’t used to order from Target online but they have been working hard at making their online shopping experience equal the ease and convenience of the in-store shopping experience that they’re so well known for.

Target PetitePARADE NYC Fashion Show

I had the opportunity to attend Target’s PetitePARADE NYC Fashion Show in New York City last month and unfortunately had to decline due to an already overpacked schedule, but I was able to have access to the photos and an interview with Jennifer Smith, a Target PetitePARADE Stylist. Here’s what she had to say:

What was your inspiration behind the styles at the Target and petitePARADE show?

  • My first look at the Target spring and summer collection instantly brought back memories of those long summer days growing up in the 70s. From seersuckers and dip-dyes, to neons and florals, the clothes had me dreaming of everything from 4th of July parties to countless days spent at the beach.

If you could sum up this latest Target collection in three words, what would they be?


How do you/can parents encourage kids to celebrate their style?

  • When I was growing up, my mom made most of the clothing choices for me and my siblings. These days, kids are much more expressive with their style and I always encourage them to have fun with fashion. I love setting my son free in Target to explore and challenge his personal expression through fashion. He puts together the most amazing outfits! With so many affordable, on-trend offerings at Target, we both always leave the store inspired.

Here are a few shots from the PetitePARADE that give you an idea what Target has in store for us for summer!

I think this outfit is totally cute and age appropriate. My 10-year-old is always asking me for scarves so I’m glad to see that Target is making some in kid sizes.

How cute is this little guy!?

I bet this little girl was thrilled to get to walk Bullseye the Target dog down the runway.

  1. April says

    I’d love to win because I’m a hard-working grad student and mother of two. Money is tight, and this would be a blessing! :)

  2. says

    Six kids that keep on growing! I love shopping at Target, I always find things for all of my kids there. And I love the Champion workout gear for myself.

  3. says

    My husband loves their all cotton graphic tees! (Though honestly, I would probably buy a lot of diapers…such is life.)

  4. says

    Target is my go-to store for most things, but especially for clothes for my 7-year-old daughter. Walmart always has characters and slogans slapped all over the tops, and their bottoms are shorter and wider than how she’s built. I can always rely on Target to have appropriate clothing that fits her shape, at a price I’m comfortable paying. They’re stylish, but comfortable and easy for her to wear, and they hold up well! {As you mentioned.}

    If I won the gift card, I would be purchasing new clothes for Spring, some new basic likes socks and pj’s, and definitely a pair of Spring-friendly shoes. That would definitely help us out as we’re a one-income household!

  5. says

    my girls love Target’s clothing department. Even though they one is a teen and one a young adult now they still love to shop there. It was so easy when they were younger. L.L. Bean Kids catalog was our best friend. Glad to have Target where they can chose thier own clothing. I shop and they text when it’s time to pay. gotta love that!

  6. Stacey V says

    I’m love to win another Target card from Musings of a Housewife. I’d buy my kids some new spring/summer clothes and possibly an item for me too.

  7. says

    So much to like at Target! I would probably pick up a few clothing pieces for my girls – and a few household items for me. Love their Home Decor department!

  8. says

    I love to shop at Target. Hard to say what I’d buy. Probably new dishes and silverware! Thanks so much for doing this Jo-Lynne!! Your daughter is adorable.

  9. Allison Van de Kemp says

    I would like to win because I also have two daughters who are getting pickier but we always find things we love at Target!

  10. Rachel says

    I’d love to win! I’d probably buy accessories for myself, then stock up on the kids clothing 😉

  11. Nadine says

    I would take my 7 yr old daughter clothes shopping at Target. She would love those dresses and skirts!

  12. JennB says

    I’d love to win- could use some new items for my twin girls and maybe a cute pair of sandals for me!

  13. Kathy C. says

    I’d love to win! I’d like to purchase items for my children – though they are in college, I still buy a lot of their clothes from Target!!

  14. Mandee says

    If I won a $100 gift card my son would have a new wardrobe. We still need to buy his summer clothes and this gift card would help out with that. Not to mention that Target is one of my favorite stores :) .

  15. Jaime says

    I’d probably go shopping with my DD….I’m sure we can both find ways to spend the money!

  16. Julie S. says

    Target is a one stop shop – who wouldn’t want to win?! :) I wouldn’t mind picking up some stuff for myself w/o guilt and w/o shopping the clearance racks! Thanks Jo-Lynne!

  17. says

    It is the time of year where all my kids pants are floods and all their skirts are bordering on inappropriately short. I DESPERATELY need to win this one!!

  18. Alissa says

    I would most certainly buy new spring and summer clothes for the kids. Or for me. Or groceries. Or something new for the house. (Chances are I’ll buy all of those things at Target at some point in the coming months. Ha ha!)

  19. says

    I love Target, especially for my daughter. We always find cute clothes there. I am a big fan of their little girl’s dresses, like the ones your girls were wearing.

    I would buy my kids new clothes if I won. They need almost all new summer stuff…makes me a little queasy just thinking about it.

  20. says

    I’d probably buy something for my house since my girls all buy their own clothes these days. Or wine. Did you know Target sells wine?? 😉

  21. Kim Kauffman says

    I’d like to win to save it for when our new baby is born in June. We are being surprised on gender this time and we have nothing for a boy since our first was a girl!

  22. Lanalouwho says

    OMG! My little man is still young enough that I get to dress him up like a doll. I tell him that if he doesn’t like it, then he’d better learn to talk! I buy about 90% of his clothes at Target, and we are in need of some new summer styles. I would pick up some shorts and t-shirts for him, and a new pair of shoes. And I might have a look-see at what they have available for me.

  23. Bonnie Sypolt says

    I would like to win the gift certificate because I currently do not shop at Target for clothes, but after reading this blog, it seems like I could find some great finds for my son and he needs clothes for the upcoming season. I would like to give Target a chance and check and see what they have.

  24. Sheri O. says

    Love the kids clothes at Target! Great options for modest dressing choices! My daughter loves the leggings, too!

  25. says

    I love me some Target. I’m there often and it’s the best to just shop around with no list and walk out with 20 things you never new you needed. I’d probably leave there was new makeup and baby clothes on clearance.

  26. Leigh says

    I have my third coming in August and I will be looking for some tiny newborn summer girls clothes.

  27. Maria says

    I shop at Target all the time! I could totally use that $100 for some new spring clothes for the kids!

  28. says

    Awesome giveaway! If I won I would use some of it to buy my son, Dante’s, summer wardrobe then save the rest of it for when the fall rolls around. I love some their fall plaid shirts for kids! And truth be told, I would have to buy a little somethin’ somethin’ for myself. 😉

  29. Mary B says

    For sure stuff for the kids! Love Target and their selection. Between basics and their C9 sportswear I shop ALL their departments. (Mens, Womens/Juniors & Girls) for my trio.

  30. Kellyn says

    With these I usually say “oh my kids needs clothes” but lady I NEED CLOTHES. I hate shopping, just hate it (don’t disown me!!) so I never buy myself anything. I think the pants I wore today I have had for at least 5 years…that’s sad…

  31. tiffany h. says

    Like so many others, I love Target. Your daughter picked out some very cute and stylish outfits. My daughter would wear all the same clothes except the maxi dresses. She might wear one to church but she’s so active that I can’t imagine her wearing one. If I win the Target shopping spree I’d buy clothes for my son. Talk about being active! I’m constantly purchasing new sneakers and jeans for the 6-year-old guy in my life. He doesn’t walk. He runs and slides everywhere. Yes, I said slides. We have hardwood floors and he slides across them all the time. He slides at school on the grass, in the dirt and on the cement. His clothes take a beating and is always in need of something new to wear.

    • says

      Ha! My son slides too and he is 13. That’s why I love those C9 pants! :-) For $10 a pair, he can slide all he wants. But when he does it on Sundays in his Gap khakis, I do want to throttle him, lol.

  32. says

    With three kids, two of whom are boys who won’t stop growing, there is no doubt as to what I’d buy–clothes for THEM for warmer weather!!! Thanks, Jo-Lynne. I’m crossing my fingers on this one. :)

  33. Susan says

    Well, we have moved on to the teen girls section at Target and I have noticed they are doing better with up to date fashions and good textures. My daughter needs some new capris and some shorts so we would totally head there first.

  34. Catherine silver says

    I love their clothes for my kids and those maxi dresses are very tempting!

  35. Megan says

    Thanks for the great post about Target. I would love to win and would use the money to do some updating of my own closet. I seem to keep up with my kids wardrobes, but mine is the one that suffers.
    Thanks bunches!

  36. says

    Probably 75% of my daughter’s wardrobe comes from Target, for all of the reasons you mentioned. I could SO use this gift card.

    PS Your daughter is totally adorable. I love the photo of her in the pink, black, and white dress.

  37. says

    I would love to win because we are a Target family! I love their clothes and my kids live in them all summer long. I would stock up on summer gear with $100!

  38. says

    I’d love to win because my 5 kids just won’t stop growing. :) Target is one of those places where all of my kids love to shop and even the boys don’t mind picking outfits that match.

  39. Denise Zuniga says

    I´ve only ever shopped at Target once, on a visit to the US, but now that it’s handy in Canada, I look forward to picking up cute, affordable kids clothes– & hopefully something for hubby & me, too!

  40. says

    I’d love to buy my almost 9 year old a few dresses. She has such a hard time with pants fitting that we try to live in dresses in the warmer months. And those maxi dresses are adorable!!!

  41. Mandy S says

    My five and a half year old daughter is tall for her age and therefore I have a hard time keeping her in pants and shirts that are long enough for her. So I would definitely put the money to good use finding her some clothes to fit her growing body.

  42. Rachel says

    I want to win because my husband always says that if I’m not home on the weekends, you can find me in Target. My 2 year old son and I need some shorts soon!

  43. Katy says

    I would love to win so I could pick up some clothes for my four year old and 20 month old…and maybe something for me, too!

  44. says

    That’s a toss up. I wanna be the bigger person and say that I’d shop for my kids or the hubs. But really I wanna just shop for me because Target has some AMAZING stuff right now. So in reality I’d probably shop for all 4 of us. :)

  45. Rosie says

    Maternity! I’m early in my second pregnancy and this one is a few months ahead of my first, so I’ll be needing some summer wear.

  46. Denise B says

    I would buy clothes for me. I’ve lost 35 pounds and I need some new clothes in smaller sizes.

  47. Kristen M. says

    I just outfitted the family with new bathing suits from Target last weekend. However, there is so much more we need clothing wise to get ready for summer. I’d shop for warmer weather items for my kids.

  48. Kaitlyn says

    Oh my! I’m a college student, so all money goes towards food. :) BUT we just got a two-story Target in town and I saw SO many cute things when I went and ‘walked the aisles.’ :)

  49. Jen H. says

    I got so extremely excited when I saw some ombre kids clothes. I absolutely love everything ombre/dip dye so I would totally pick up some of those for my kids for this summer with the gift card. For me personally, I love the Gilligan ‘O Malley pj line made of modal cotton. They are the only pj’s I wear now!

  50. Megan W says

    I love Target’s clothing. I would love to win to get some basics for the upcoming warm months. I need some color in my life again.

  51. Becky says

    I would buy some of the longer shorts for my daughter. Mi was pleased to see they had some that were not short short

  52. Shannon says

    Those kid’s maxi dresses are so cute, I’m sure my girls would love 1 or 2 of them!! We are totally into scarves around here, so I’m sure they would make their way onto our shopping list if we won!

  53. Suzy says

    I would love to take my 14-year-old on her own shopping spree – with no strings attached. She would be in her glory picking out $100 worth of spring/summer clothes. And it would be great that no matter what she picked up at Target, it would be age appropriate for her.

  54. Alison says

    Love me some Target. I think I would take my 15 yr old daughter out for a day of shopping and split it with her. I am in the market for some new wedges and a colorful handbag.

  55. Sam says

    I would love to be able to take my stepdaughter on a Spring shopping spree at Target. :)

  56. says

    I have a teenage daughter who would burn through that giftcard in no time! Great giveaway (and I love the simple entry!). :)

  57. Becky P says

    I don’t shop at Target often because the closest one to me is an hour away. However, it is only 1/2 hour away from my daughter’s house. Would love to win a gift card and have my daughter and grandbaby go with me to spend it!

  58. Courtney B says

    I am pregnant and due in June so I would love to get some post-partum clothes to help me look cute through the rest of the summer!

  59. Nikki says

    My daughter would have so much fun shopping with a Target gift card. She’s in desperate need of some cute new clothes!

  60. Becky says

    Is groceries the wrong answer? Maybe some new shoes, a pair of jeans and a new shirt!

  61. Jessica M. says

    I would LOVE to win a Target gift card! I’m pregnant with my first baby & she’s due in July! I could definitely buy some cute baby clothes and other necessities!

  62. Jen Dowler says

    My twin boys are 10 months old and we get everything from Target. If my kids are eating it, wearing it or playing with it then we probably bought it at Target. I’d have to split the gift card 50 50. Half foe necessities

  63. sara says

    Both my daughters get much of their wardrobe at target. Now that my 5 year old is out of the toddler section it is good to know the girls section has so many cute options. I did find some of the clothes in that section a bit questionable in the past. Glad target is listening! I always manage to find something cute for me too!

  64. Stacy K. says

    Love shopping at target for all the latest styles. Would buy a sheet set for my daughter if I won.

  65. Yolanda Flores says

    I would love to win because summer is around the corner; trends change and I need a new wardrobe!

  66. Noelle says

    I would so appreciate winning this $100 gift card as my boys are pickier now that they’re getting older! I would love to take them to pick out a new summer wardrobe of shorts and t-shirts…and maybe a treat for my wardrobe too!

  67. Dawn says

    Great choices at Target! I have a 9 year old that loves the glitz and glamor of another uber popular girls store…but me, not so much. Too flashy and short for my tastes. Target offers great style that we both love, and everything that we’ve purchased over the years has held up well. Now that Spring has finally sprung, we are planning our shopping trip to stock up on summer clothes. Always fun, but the gift card would make it even better!

  68. teri s says

    Birthdays are coming up–it would be awesome to use a gift certificate and get some really cute (and handsome) clothing pieces for the nieces (and son)!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  69. plymouthmom says

    If I won this Target gift card I would take my son shopping. He is one of four and ALWAYS getting hand me downs, yet never complains. The other day he mentioned how nice it would be to pick out things for himself just once. He wasn’t complaining, just sharing how he felt. I’d love to surprise him and make a day of it spending quality time together.

  70. Clare says

    I have only had bad experiences shopping online at Target, but I might give it another try. I love Target’s Champion t-shirts. Each year, I buy 3 shirts in the same bright color. Then I put all my 3 kids in them when we go out in public (state fair, children’s museum, zoo, etc) so that if I lose one of them for a moment, I look for the bright yellow, bright green, bright red shirt or whatever color they are in today. It also lets other guests know we’re part of the same family. The shirts have held up despite multiple washings, too.

  71. says

    I have a 4.5 year old quickly growing too tall for all of her pants and a new baby on the way…lots of clothing needs at our house!

  72. AmyS says

    With two boys constantly growing, clothes shopping is continual for us. And Target is always a great place for staples. But now that the oldest is in mens sizes, the price jump has made the budget stretch even more difficult. Would love to win, and would put the Target $$$ to good use.

  73. Jenny says

    We have 5 kids (3 boys and 2 girls) and 4 of them are teenagers who love Target brands. We would love to win. Thanks for the giveaway.

  74. Megan H. says

    I live in Canada and Target just opened up in my home town…I would love to check it out and if I win this giveaway, use it to buy some spring/summer clothes for my family!

  75. says

    Target is on my top 3 list for clothes, so I’d have no trouble using this to snag some more of their scarves and maybe a pair of sandals. Can’t forget my one-year-old, either, who is already nearly a size 2T.

  76. says

    I’d love to win this! As a single mom to a 4 month old who is also doing school full time, there’s very little money to spend getting the baby cute new clothes. I love Target. They have such great products for a great low price!

  77. Paula says

    If you can believe it, we only got Target in Canada in the last month! Stores are still opening and mine opened last Thursday. Then it closed on Friday and Sunday for the Easter holidays! :( Needless to say, I could find zillions of ways to spend a gift card… as a matter of fact, I know there’s a pair of green shorts my daughter has her eye on…

  78. Linda says

    Hi! I started reading your blog a month or two ago and I love it. I’d love to win this Target gift. Both of my young daughters could use new clothes for Spring and Summer and it would be great to outfit them in such cute, stylish pieces.

  79. Cindy says

    My daughter starts high school next year and after eight years of school uniforms she has already started talking about her wardrobe for next year. An extra $100 (& FREE!) would be awesome!

  80. says

    I love Target! They have great marketing strategies. I love how they coordinate kitchen and bathroom collections. So cute! However, if I win this $100 I would use it to buy summer must-haves for my family. My 2 sons need sandals and flipflops. We all need new pool/beach towels.

  81. Lisa says

    I’d love to win this shopping spree for my 3 daughters! We all love Target any time of the year!
    The closest one to our house is an hour away, so when we do get there, it’s a special event!

  82. Jessie says

    I have two little girls who would love to blow through a gift card in the Target girls’ department. My oldest already has one of the denim jackets – I’m sure she’d like one of those adorable skirts to go with!

  83. says

    I love shopping at Target. When we moved away from the city, one of the criteria was “how far was the nearest Target?” :)

    I would buy sandals/crocs for my 4 year old, plus some other fun summer clothes for him. (Haven’t even got out the bins to see what he needs… there’s still snow in our yard!)

  84. says

    Oh boy. We have been on a very tight budget for the last few years, so all 5 of us could use some clothes. I would love those skirts and jackets for my 8-year-old. I would love some a new pair of jeans and a fresh spring top. Thanks for the giveaway!

  85. Courtney says

    My kids are little (21 months and 4 1/2 years) so they are growing like WEEDS! I love getting basics for them and being able to mix and match. So easy to throw into the diaper bag when heading to daycare or out for the day.

  86. Kristen says

    Target is my favorite! I would love to be able to go shopping for some new summer clothes.

  87. Shannon says

    I have two kids (ages 4 and almost 8) who will be needing entire summer wardrobes (they grow so fast!) so I’d love to win. Love Target clothes for the whole family!!!

  88. Jamie says

    I love the dresses that your big girl picked out! Looks like you two had a fun day if shipping.

  89. Lynn says

    I would use it on cookware and dishware for my new apartment. Thanks for the chance to win!

  90. ellen beck says

    I love Target! I would go to the clearance rack aand buy some winter things for next year and socks for now- everyone always needs them!

  91. Amber says

    Such cute fashions! I’d love to get some new clothes for the kiddos! Stylish and so affordable. Thanks!

  92. JulieB says

    I’d love the $100 to get my son some much needed new clothes. Thank you for the great giveaway!

  93. says

    I have loved going to shop at Target for clothes for my two boys. As the weather is getting warmer, by boys will be needing new swimsuits and shorts.

  94. Melanie says

    My daughter has been eating a ton this week so I know that any day now she’ll wake up and have outgrown her entire closet!

  95. Andrea Darst says

    I’d love to win to be able to buy my daughter some spring/summer clothes…she needs them badly & I’m the only one working in our house right now (2 jobs)…fingers crossed!

  96. Becky Richied says

    I’d love to win because it would be nice to have a win like this brighten my day…and I would so be able to get us a microwave if I did win.

  97. Ashley P says

    I would love to be able to buy some new clothes for my son, and some new curtains I keep eyeing every time I’m there!

  98. says

    Love target! I have to limit my trips so I don’t spend tooling money there! I’d probably get kids clothes and clothes for me ;-).

  99. Jana T says

    We are always at Target – there is one literally 2 minutes from our house! This can be good and bad… But if I were so lucky to win, I would stock up on some new jeans for my 2 boys – they seem to fit them/hold up better than even some of the more expensive brands and you can’t beat the price! Thanks for a great giveaway –

  100. Jessica Forrestt says

    I would buy clothes for myself and my Mom for the Spring. Including sundresses, bikinis, shorts, and tank tops. I will also get my Momma whatever she wants because she is my hero! :)

  101. Lynn says

    i would love to win to check out some of Target’s designer collaboration lines! I hope there’s still something left. I also want to buy stuff for the summer picnic and BBQ parties

  102. stefanie m says

    I absolutely love Target and am always in there buying everything from clothes to food to furniture. I have an 8 week old son who is rapidly growing out of his clothes, so I would likely use the gift card on clothes and diapers for him.

  103. Claire McDowell says

    Already have the navy and white striped dress with the pink pleated bottom. Super cute clothes @ Target! Would love to win!

  104. Shannon says

    Oh its like you read my mind. Both my girls are outgrowing all their clothes and the clothes have had better days. I’d buy each of them one of the maxi dresses, some new sandals and hopefully some plaid skimmer shorts that my 9 year old is wanting.

  105. Julia says

    I’m a student and rarely have extra money to update my wardrobe! That’s exactly what I would do if I won; new clothes! 😀

  106. Jackie Baker says

    With 3 kids under 6…they all need summer clothes. This target card would be a HUGE blessing!

  107. Heather M says

    My kids have been outfitted but I desperately need new clothes so I would go shopping for me.

  108. Barb @ Frugal Local Kitchen says

    I would love to buy clothes for my dd6. As the only girl, she doesn’t have access to hand me downs. She and I both love the athletic wear in the girls department at Target. We can’t pass by those bright colors!

  109. Vicky L says

    I would buy my 2 daughters lots of pretty summer clothes…and that great ruffled one piece swimsuit too!

  110. dana says

    I LOVE Target and I’d make that $100 stretch by shopping their clearances. I’ve purchased some pretty nice work shirts off their clearance racks.

  111. Sonya says

    With my two children a boy and girl (both under 4) outgrowing their clothes and shoes soo fast I have to stretch every dollar. I know I can always depend on Target to have great prices and amazing clearance prices to keep my kids in nice looking clothes.

  112. leah says

    Oh please pick me! I have four kiddos to dress. We are missionaries in Mexico. I have to buy a year’s worth of clothes when we go back for visits.

  113. Debbie says

    Love your “Girl’s Day Out”. My son also spends all of his time in basketball shorts and pants and he too may or may not wear the same pants to bed and then the next day!!! :) I would use the Target gift card for new shoes and shorts and tee’s.

  114. Lorie D says

    I would buy clothes for my ever growing kids. My daughter is 11 but she is too tall for their kids section but we find some decent selections in the juniors and my son wears the mens department at 14 (again so tall) and he could stand some basketball shorts too!
    Momma might have to get herself a new pair of sunglasses too :)

  115. says

    Congrats on being a member of Target’s Inner Circle! I’m so glad to see that the brand is engaging with bloggers.

    Our family loves Target. If I won the shopping spree, I’d pick up a few t-shirts for me and some swingy summer dresses for the girls (ages 6, 4, and 11 months).

  116. Mere says

    I’d follow your daughter’s lead and head for the dresses. I’m so glad they’re “in” again and stylish!

  117. Jenny says

    I would buy clothes for my kids. Times are hard. This would be such a blessing!!!!

  118. Jenna D says

    I absolutely love Target! I’ve just lost 15 pounds so none of my clothing fits anymore, my wardrobe consists of one pair of pants and a few t-shirts. I would love to win this and buy some cute summer dresses and a new swim suit

  119. Heather Hayes Panjon says

    I Would Love To Win, Target Is My Favorite Store, I’d Buy Summer Fashions For My Kids :)

  120. Stephanie says

    My 4 year old only likes “soft clothes” – no collars, or buttons, or zippers. We would be hitting up the boys’ C9 stuff from Champion – that’s the style that makes dressing him go smoothly.

  121. Cindy G says

    I would totally by my babies their summer duds and maybe a little something for my self :)

  122. Catherine S. says

    I love to shop at Target…I would buy my daughter a new bedroom set since she is due soon to move out of her crib and into a big girl bed! How did that happen?

  123. Sarah S says

    I would really love to win so I can buy some clothes for my growing 2 year old. He’s about ready for the next size in clothes…

  124. says

    I would LOVE to win! I’m about to do Spring shopping for the whole family and the budget I have set is scary. We love Target clothes, especially for kids that grow so fast! You can’t beat the prices and the quality is great too.

  125. says

    I would love a shopping spree at Target because they have the styles my girls love and my 6 year old needs spring/summer clothes ASAP. Her sister is covered through hand me downs and my poor Taylor has minimal clothes. I started buying an outfit here, an outfit there with each paycheck but to get it all done on one shot is what this busy mom needs!

  126. melissa teears says

    Target has cute clothes for boys. I could use this to get spring/summer clothes for my son

  127. ashley says

    I would love to win because I’m on a fixed income since I’m disabled and Target has everything so it would go a really long way.

  128. Cathy says

    I just hauled out the spring/summer clothes. Both kids could use some basic tees to fill in the gaps left by stains and wear!

  129. says

    I’d love to win this for my boys. They could use some new summer clothes since they are growing like weeds. Oh and if I have anything left over then I would buy some weed and feed for my yard lol

  130. Judy M says

    I’d love to pick up some summer shoes and tops… and something new for my hubby too! :)

  131. mary b says

    I’d love to win and be able to get my youngest some of his favorite Shaun White clothes, and probably some of those basketball shorts for my middle schooler, he loves those, too.

  132. MaryJM says

    This would be so nice to win so that I could buy something for Summer for my sons.

  133. Tracy Robertson says

    I would love to win because money is tight right now, and Target is one of my favorite places to shop since money always goes further there. I could buy clothing, beauty supplies, coffee and groceries all at a good price. Thanks!

  134. Kristy says

    I love Target! My boys are in need of summer clothes and we are moving into a new house next month and will of course have lots of decorating to do!

  135. beth says

    I would LOVE to win a Target gift card. I have 3 boys and we love Target clothes. My youngest needs all new summer clothes.

  136. Angela says

    We love to shop at Target! My daughter(9) just spent her own money on new summer outfits for herself at Target. I would use the gift card for her to shop again when she needs new clothes. Thanks!

  137. Emily E says

    I would buy clothes for the new baby and my toddler who is outgrowing his 24 month clothes as we speak.

  138. Cathy says

    I would love to win so I could get some maternity clothes! I am 23 weeks pregnant and I need to get out of my regular clothes.

  139. Diane says

    I’d love to win to treat my mom to a shopping spree. She does so much for everyone else, it would be great to treat her to something special!


    if i won i would redecorate my new place with a desk and new carpets for the living room

  141. Neiddy says

    Target has the cutest kids clothes for a very affordable price. I would to win this gift card so I can run to my local Target and buy my little ones a new wardrobe. Thanks for the opportunity!
