The Target x Neiman Marcus Collection is 50 Percent Off Online and In Stores

Don't all freak out at once but the Target x Neiman Marcus collection is now 50% off in stores and online at I'm getting the Tracy Reese plates ($19.99, down from $39.99) and possibly some other items. Merry Christmas to me! It was rumored that this collection wouldn't even go on sale, let again get marked down a whopping fifty percent, but it's happening and it's happening now. Thanks to my sister for tipping me off!

I find this hilarious! Now that it's sort-of affordable (and more in line w/Target's prices) maybe it will actually sell?

Ah nuts! I bought the red Jason Wu dress for my daughter exactly a week ago because she needed a red dress for her school's holiday program and you would not believe how hard it was to find a plain old red dress for a little girl. I wonder if they'll give me a price adjustment? :-P (At least the dress is beautiful and I'm impressed with the quality.)

@Cathy - Yes I'd try, they should give you a price adjustment with your receipt...good luck! And those girls' dresses are totally worth it, so so precious.

So I ended up getting a price adjustment after all! YAY! :-) Now I feel like I've gotten a deal -- still cheaper than Tea Collection and way cheaper than J.Crew.

Thanks for the heads up! I JUST returned the Tracey Reese top last night. Although I like it I thought it was very overpriced. I'll repurchase this weekend :-). AND I'm getting that Rag and Bone sweater for my boss for our gift exchange tomorrow.

Just thinking about how this collection was a complete flop. It barely moved in any of the stores near me in N. Cali.

Miss D, thank you so much for this alert. Now I will be able to get that DVF Yoga mat that I want. LOL
Here in Dallas is not doing good at all :-(

Go figure. Our Target is still full of the items. Too expensive to begin with

I agree with everyone, they didn't really think this through. For 100 dollars I rather get something straight from Neiman's, the outlet has some very thrifty, designer finds. I would not pay 100 dollars for a dress from Target, no way.

Okay, so at half off I am definitely considering one of the Marc Jacobs clutches–fingers crossed that it goes to 75% off :-) Thanks for the heads up!

Omg! I am so glad to read this I want that Blue Sequin T shirt so badly but not badly enough to pay $80. I am definately going there today!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!

OMG, thank you! I might seriously consider some of the items now that the prices aren't so absurd.

Nooooo I bought the Alice + Olivia carry on at full price and it's been over a week. Haha oh well!

I totally agree that this collection was a huge flop. Both Targets I frequent appear to not have sold even one piece -- all racks are still completely full. Even with the giant 50% signs, no one was even looking at the merchandise yesterday. I would love to see a "lessons learned" article on this collection once it's all said and done. I wonder if they will reconsider not putting the items on clearance.

I got thr Sequin t shirt and I am so happy! I hope after Christmas that there is still some things left. I could not believe there was still so much left even at 50% off

My husband got me the bike for christmas all he saw that it was $499.00 he got 1/2 off and another 20% because of a little paint of on a handle bar, and he thinks he is the best husband in the world (LOL)
