Shopping data the chain has collected throughout the coronavirus pandemic helped Target develop its collaboration with Carter, which is meant to "spread joy" and let customers "bring the outside in."

"As people have spent more time at home over the past year, our guests are increasingly looking for ways to add more comfort and personality to their surroundings," Target's executive vice president and chief merchandising officer Jill Sando said, in a statement. "Searches for plants on Target.com have increased by more than 300% over the last year – a clear indicator that guests want to bring some of the outdoors inside to brighten up their space. We wanted to identify a partner who could bring something special to Target and deliver a collection that allows guests to easily and affordably refresh any room in their home."
