“This is an unprecedented event on every level,” said Marla Provencio, chief marketing officer, executive vice president, ABC Entertainment Group. “It has been a great experience collaborating with these two iconic brands, and we are thrilled that they chose ABC’s ‘Revenge’ as the exclusive partner.”
“The scale of our partnership with Neiman Marcus propelled us to go well beyond the traditional approach and develop marketing initiatives that reflect the historic nature of this collaboration,” said Jeff Jones, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, Target. “Working with the team at ABC has been invigorating. We’re confident the November 11 episode of ‘Revenge’ will blow our guests away and, much like our collection with Neiman Marcus, provide an unforgettable element of surprise this holiday season.”

I must start by making two startling confessions: first, despite being an avid fan of ‘Project Runway,’ I never really understood equating fun with fashion; second, up until last night, I don’t believe I have ever stepped foot inside a Target store (only because where I live makes it particularly difficult). Both of these errors of my ways were corrected last night, however, as I managed to find my way to the clothing departments of a Target just a couple of hours away.
What brought me to Target were images and buzz going around the Disney fan world of a new collection from Target titled the ‘Disney Artist Collection.’ The recipient of much of the attention was Oswald — and rightfully so — as well as a tee inspired by the very first Silly Symphonies short, The Skeleton Dance. But Oswald, as I soon learned, was just the tip of the iceberg of this unique collection which is bound to surprise and delight Disney fans of all ages.
Although the women’s collection was missing completely at the particular location I visited, I was able to see some of the men’s, boys’, girls’ and toddler collections and going through the racks, it was Christmas morning as each design I discovered intrigued me more and more.
It wasn’t so much Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (and there is plenty of Oswald, no doubt the star of the collection), nor the obligatory Mickey and Minnie Mouse (whom I’m always happy to see), but the host of ancillary characters who are rarely — if ever — featured on merchandise. Spotted gracing the collection, for example, were Cleo and Figaro from Pinocchio, Pluto’s nemesis Butch, the Big Bad Wolf and Three Little Pigs and even a dwarf who is neither Dopey nor Grumpy, but rather Sleepy.
The artwork is fun and creative, often spanning both sides of the top, and is often enhanced for its target audience, such as distressing marks for boys & men, while often modest amounts of glitter for girls.
The one negative sentiment I must share, however, and this seems to be shared with others who have spotted the collection early in local stores is that the color palettes and sizing appears to be very limited. Additionally, while there are a few items available online (mostly women’s), there’s a substantial amount of the collection missing from Target.com as of this time.

As part of the inaugural National Princess Week collaboration with The Walt Disney Company, Target will sell the The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement movie pack on Disney blu-ray beginning April 15. Target will be the exclusive seller of the set through May 12, it has been confirmed to us.
The films paired Anne Hathaway, in her cinematic debut, screen with Disney and film legend Julie Andrews, will then become available for purchase at other retailers beginning on May 15, 2012. While retailers such as Amazon.com are now accepting pre-orders, Target will not be accepting them until its online princess boutique rolls out in early April.
World renowned actress, singer and best-selling children’s author, Julie Andrews, in collaboration with Target and The Walt Disney Company, is announcing the creation and inaugural launch of National Princess Week beginning April 22, 2012.
This unprecedented collaboration highlights Julie Andrews’ longtime dedication to nurturing every child’s unique spirit, as demonstrated throughout her career on stage, screen and through her children’s book endeavors. With the support of Target and Disney, National Princess Week will celebrate the sparkle and imagination of every princess – real, aspiring or imagined.
“So many children fall in love with the whimsical wonder of princesses and all the goodness that they represent,” said Ms. Andrews. “Joining Target and Disney to host this annual event nationally will help us to recognize and celebrate the uniqueness that lies within every child.”
The event coincides with the 10-year anniversary of The Princess Diaries, starring Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, and the special two-movie collection of The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, available for the first time ever on Disney Blu-ray. Target and Target.com will feature an array of Disney Princess merchandise highlighting beloved princess characters such as Ariel, Cinderella and Snow White — from apparel, toys and books, to CDs, movies, personal care items and stationery. The week will also highlight the newest release in the No. 1 New York Times best-selling The Very Fairy Princess children’s book franchise, The Very Fairy Princess Here Comes the Flower Girl!, co-authored by Julie’s daughter and writing partner, Emma Walton Hamilton and published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
“Julie Andrews is an icon for children who love the magic of fairy princesses,” said Casey Carl, Target’s senior vice president, hardlines. “Our first National Princess Week will give Target’s guests a chance to have a ‘princess experience,’ and take home their favorite princesses and accessories.”
Ms. Andrews will be honored with the Prince Rainier III Award for her outstanding contribution to motion picture, television and theater arts during the Princess Grace Awards Gala on November 1 in New York City. The award is presented to eminent artists who have not only been highly successful in their careers, but have made significant humanitarian contributions to their fields. All award recipients receive a $25,000 grant, which will be donated to select charitable organizations benefiting children.
“We are all excited about the existence of a royal tradition, and I hope that Princess Grace would have been pleased to know that there will be a week that celebrates the sparkle in each one of us – and the belief that dreams can come true,” says Ms. Andrews.
