It’s a rare chance to save on gift cards, which year after year are among the most popular and requested gifts. Last December, Target had a one-day gift card sale with 10% off store gift cards both in-store and online and in October discounted gift cards by 5% for two days.

If you’re not giving the gift cards away as gifts, they can be quickly added to the Target app to redeem at checkout and used with the Target Circle, which launched nationwide in October 2019.

With the free program, members earn 1% on nearly every purchase to redeem on a future Target trip and take advantage of other discounts including a birthday discount.

Shoppers with a Target RedCard credit or debit card aren’t eligible to earn 1% with the loyalty program when they pay with a store-branded credit or debit card but will continue to get 5% off store purchases including select gift cards year round. However, store gift cards are excluded from the cardholder perk.

Lady Diana’s iconic style returns

The obsession over Britain’s favourite royal, the Princess of Wales, is back, thanks to the fourth season of Netflix’s show The Crown

Actress Emma Corrin’s portrayal of young Diana has piqued the interest of young viewers, who can’t stop raving about the stylish costumes or Googling Lady Diana’s iconic clothing items including her black sheep jumper, dressy gowns and wedding dress. What’s more, many popular fashion sites and social media handles have even been discussing her signature haircut, making Lady Di’s style relevant even after three decades.

While Lady Diana’s lovable mannerism, humanitarian work and real connection with commoners became some of her most noted qualities, her stylish wardrobe made her one of the most glamorous royals of the ’80s and the ’90s.


Calling Lady Di an ‘icon’, designer Charu Parashar reasserts, “She was much ahead of her times and an inspiration to all who followed fashion religiously. Her style was eternal, and there wasn’t a look she couldn’t pull off. Despite all the adversities, she had grace, which strengthened her persona so much more.”

To designer Gautam Gupta, her style was classic and she was someone who never failed to impress with her impeccable wardrobe. “Another aspect of her style was that she looked very empowered and picked bright colours to express herself, it made her stand out and look confident at all times,” points out the designer who believes the days of ever-changing fads and fast-fashion are disappearing. He adds, “Millennial fashion lovers are indulging more in classic styles now.”


Queen of hearts

With her life back in the spotlight, Princess Diana brings back the sympathies one felt for her tragic position in life, navigating, as she did, her way through her troubled marriage.

In his observation designer Gaurav Jagtiani interestingly notes how her emotional and mental expressions were reflected in her sartorial choices. “During her work trips, she wore some fantastic clothes that defined power dressing, with a feminine touch. Her separates stood out on each occasion, and her blouses with power shoulders and comfy trousers are still notable. With each appearance, she sported elegant yet striking choices that engraved her into public consciousness,” says Gaurav. “Diana managed to hold our attention through these perfect, detailed outfits and still leaves us spellbound.”


Then adding how the makers of The Crown have left no stone unturned in recreating these milestones in contemporary pop culture, Gaurav says they’ve been creating intrigue and rekindling our interest in one of the most well-loved public figures of all time.

Nostalgic expressions

Anyone who has grown up admiring Princess Diana’s fashion sensibilities will swear by some of her most-talked-about pieces, such as the red wool crewneck sweater with black sheep or her plaid pants and biker shots paired with varsity jumpers.

Designer Nidhi Yasha, who shares her birthday with the royal icon, mentions that while growing up she felt a strong connection and the princess’ clothes inspired her to become a designer. “Her style stayed with me forever, and I noticed that she

Lavelle bags golazo, Mewis returns as USWNT ends 2020 in style

The USWNT returned to the field for the first time since March — and for the final time in 2020 — to cap off a disjointed calendar year with a stylish victory over the Netherlands in a rematch of the 2019 World Cup final.

Rose Lavelle scored a stunning strike which turned out to be the winning goal in the 41st minute, and Kristie Mewis marked her first USWNT cap since 2014 with a well-taken goal just nine minutes after coming off the bench midway through the second half.

As far as 2020 goes, the good vibes were off the charts and so desperately needed.

Speaking of good vibes, the entirety of the USWNT wore “Black Lives Matter” — printed in big, bold letters on the front of their warmup jackets — as they took the field for the national anthem. Nine of the 11 starters knelt as the anthem began to play as they strived to “affirm human decency.”

“This is not political, it’s a statement on human rights,” they stated as part of a longer message via the USWNT Twitter account.

Perhaps Lavelle was out to make her case for more playing time at Manchester City after she sat on the bench as an unused substitute while her team coughed up a 2-0 lead en route to a disappointing Manchester derby draw two weeks ago. Whatever her motivation, Lavelle couldn’t have hit this ball any better.

Alex Morgan also came off the bench and made her USWNT return on Friday, after giving birth to her first child in May. It was Morgan’s first appearance in the red, white and blue since that 2019 final in Lyon.

But it was Mewis who delivered the moment of the match, not only when she entered the game in the 61st minute and partnered her sister Sam in midfield, but when Lynn Williams played her into space with a clever, first-time through ball. Mewis took it from there as she rifled a left-footed finish inside the far post to make it 2-0 and put the game to bed.
