In case you missed it.
Target Tries Next-Day Delivery [Target]
Not so fast, Amazon. Target wants to get into the next-day delivery business, too. The retailer announced Tuesday that it is testing a next-day delivery service for household goods, called Target Restock, in the Minneapolis area. Items like laundry detergent and coffee will be delivered for a flat fee by 1:30 p.m. the following day. The only catch? To use the service, you must be a Target REDcard holder. Or, you could hold out for Amazon's drone delivery service.

Gabriela Hearst Sells Ovary Sweater for Charity [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Gabriela Hearst is the latest designer to sell her pieces in the name of charity. Hearst will sell the "Ram Ovaries" merino wool sweater, featuring an image of a cross between a ram head and ovaries, with all proceeds of the $699 garment benefiting Planned Parenthood. "The Ram-Ovaries sweater for me symbolizes female strength in a time of uncertainty," Hearst said in a release. "Women's health is under attack by the current administration and it is an affront to our gender." The piece is now available for pre-order.
Thank you @voguemagazine @nicolephelps for the piece on #gabrielahearst Ultra soft merino Ram Ovaries Crew. Now in pre order to raise money for @plannedparenthood "Designer Gabriela Hearst is standing with @plannedparenthood. Today, she’s begun pre-selling a merino wool sweater intarsia’d with a design that marries a ram’s head and ovaries. Hearst originally conceived the sweater in advance of the Woolmark Prize competition, which took place in Paris on the same day as the Women’s March in January. When she realized the outline of a ram’s head looks remarkably similar to a woman’s reproductive system, the idea was born. “I liked that they’re both symbols of strength,” Hearst said. She sketched the design and her husband Austin colored it in. (And she won the prize too, by the way.) “Planned Parenthood right now needs all the help it can get, and all the attention it can get,” Hearst told Vogue. For me, it’s not only about my body my choice, it’s about our overall health. They take care of our cancer screenings. They take care of so many things. And when the government is making a direct attack on women’s health… first of all, it’s appalling. And we have to do something.” #standwithpp
