Wear your support on your sleeve

Olympics aren't just about the sports, you know. They're also about fashion. Remember the brouhaha when the U.S. team wore berets?

That look will return when Team USA hits Torino next month. And even if you don't know slalom from curling, you can join them. Check out's apparel site for USA wear. Go to www., then type " Torino " into the search engine. You'll find more than 100 items ranging from pins ($6.99) to a closing ceremonies vest ($199.99).

Sweet treats, no calories

So, you're being good with that New Year's resolution to avoid sweets? Sorry, but Valentine's Day is right around the corner.

The good news is that you can enjoy some "chocolate" without having to test your resolve.

Plank's contemporary yoga collection offers several chocolate-themed gifts that will not only save calories, but may actually help you burn a few, too. The Chocolate Chocolate yoga mat ($65) features a brown mat with the words "chocolate, chocolate" in glossy black lettering; just what you want when you're doing a chad-aranga. The yoga towel set ($165) includes a towel large enough to cover a yoga mat and two hand towels made from organic bamboo fibers. The bathrobe ($395, above) is great for a post-yoga shower or luxuriating around the house. For more info, visit

Valentine's artwork

Nothing says "I love you" like a piece of pop artwork.

No, we're not talking about a poster. Gallery of Love's collection allows you to celebrate the big day with a series of commemorative prints. The Valentines edition features a pop art design with a cartoon word bubble that can be personalized. Wedding, anniversary and other declarations of love are also available. Prices start at $19.95 at www.

British Invasion redux

Target has done so well with its celebrity designers that now it's going overseas. The GO International line will rotate designers from around the world for limited appearances at Target stores. First up: Luella Bartley, whose style is described as "Joey Ramone meets Gidget." The Luella line is in Target this winter. •
