* ProductPlacement: After Anne's short story is rejected by a literary magazine, Diana sends it to a baking powder company's advertisement competition, after rewriting the ending so that all hardships are conquered by love ''and'' loving uses of baking powder. The story is published as an advertising flyer for the company and--to Anne's eternal horror--becomes roaringly popular.

(Interestingly given modern opinions about such blatant product placement, Anne is the only person who sees any reason to be embarrassed about this; her friends and acquaintances consider it an enterprising and practical thing to do and are nearly universally quite proud of Anne's success.)

* YouthfulFreckles: Anne.Anne, who gets herself into trouble a couple of times in ''Anne of Avonlea'' trying to get rid of six lingering freckles on her nose. Mention is made of an ointment she tried which caused her skin to peel, and in another instance she mistakenly dyes her nose bright red due to carelessly mistaking a bottle of red dye for the bottle of lemon juice she was using to try to bleach away the freckles.

** Earlier books in the series feature Anne's classmate Moody Spurgeon McPherson, who is last heard of at college, studying to be a minister. "He couldn't be anything else with that name." (Moody and Spurgeon were two famous preachers.) Much as with the aforementioned Bertie Shakespeare, Moody Spurgeon is almost always referred to by his full name.

* WhoNamesTheirKidDude:
** In ''Anne's House of Dreams'', Miss Cornelia comments approvingly on Anne's choice of baby name (James Matthew), and mentions in passing that another new mother in the neighborhood has decided to call her baby Bertie Shakespeare. The poor kid becomes a common fixture in subsequent stories about Anne's children, and is never referred to by anything other than the whole thing: Bertie Shakespeare Drew.

* BetaCouple: There's usually one couple per book that play Beta to Anne and Gilbert's Alpha; Fred and Diana, Ms. Lavender and Stephen Irving, Phil and Reverend Jo, Owen and Leslie, etc. The last book also has Jem and Faith which play a (minor) Beta to Rilla and Ken's (minor) Alpha. Romance is not the focus of the last book, but invariably comes up since all the Blythe children are young adults.
