Target Just Released So Many Summer Backyard Items


While we don’t necessarily need an excuse to shop at Target, right now we have a pretty good one — because the retailer just dropped hundreds of new home items and we’re in love.

New releases include items from in-house brands such as Sun Squad, Threshold and Opalhouse as well as its exclusive design partnerships with Studio McGee and Magnolia. And while must-haves cover every space in your home, from your bedroom to your living room, we couldn’t help but notice that many of our new favorites are perfect for your outdoor space. And since we’re starting to use our backyards more and have barbecues and pool parties, the timing couldn’t be better.

Here we share some of our favorite outdoor picks from the new collections. You’re going to want to act fast because some items are already out of stock!
