Orla Kiely at Target!!!

I was ecstatic to hear that Orla Kiely was going to be designing kitchen and home items for Target this spring. But my excitement pales in comparison to my dear friend LD, who is a Orla Kiely aficionado and huge fan. I invited her to review the new line and loop us in on where to find these items here in Atlanta, as the line is now available online and in stores:

As YentaGirl knows, I am a big Orla Kiely fan. Her classic handbags are cotton with PVC coating, but she has spread out to leather bags as well. Her line also includes wallets, cosmetic bags, clothing, housewares, and stationery. She's fashionably taking over the world in a big way, and her new line at Target is proof! Check out her website.

Check out a NYC blog about her new line of Target tableware. The line includes melamine and ceramic cups, plates, bowls, serving pieces, and more! Keep in mind that the melamine pieces are not microwave safe and are only dishwasher safe in the top shelf. That key piece of information led me to buy 2 apple & pear plates and hang them on my kitchen wall. They look super cute, but I'm too attached to my microwave to use them as plates. I did get a couple coffee mugs that are ceramic (hence microwave safe).

So far, the tableware line is available at Atlanta-area Targets - it's definitely at the Caroline Street location off of Moreland and on 18th Street near Atlantic Station, but they were already running low! The housewares line will include pillows, doormats, storage containers, and kitchen linens - not yet available in Atlanta.

And if you're looking for a handbag, check out Star Provisions on Howell Mill. Besides an amazing selection of housewares, cheese, desserts, charcuterie, and more, they also have an entire wall of Orla Kiely bags!

good to know! I've seen Orla Kiely stuff at Paper Source, how exciting that Target is going to carry her line, too (I love success stories, especially if there is an artist involved.)
