Lands’ End Launches New Collection, Calendar Craze

Hello-Hello and Happy Friday!

We jump right into things today with a look at the new Canvas line from Lands’ End.

As the story in WWD (Women’s Wear Daily, subscription required) explains:

“Land’s End Canvas, a collection designed with a “modern sensibility,” or, in other words, a younger audience, in mind.”

The new pieces have classic appeal.

We like the Heritage Cardigan as well as the Boyfriend V-neck Cardigan.

More from today’s WWD story:

“Named after the label’s signature canvas tote, the line combines pieces that reflect the company’s sailing heritage ­­— fitted oxfords and slouchy, cuffed cargos for women and washed plaid shirts, khaki and denim for men — with a slimmer cut.”

Frequent readers know of our fondness for the basic Tretorn sneaker, and we expect Miss Nautical by Nature might have an affinity for the Silk Tie Belt with its sailing motif.

The Men’s looks are also solid.

We close with a quick reminder about our 2010 Calendars: they are going quickly.

Preppy 2010 Calendar by In Good Company at Preppy Princess DDdeskcalendar3shot

The Lilly Pulitzer Pocket Agenda is now sold out in Trouble Hibiscus, and our vendor is completely out of stock.

We do have all three patterns still available in the Lilly Large Agenda Book, as well as the Lilly Wall Calendar and Desktop model, but all of our other preppish styles are also moving quickly, especially our Susan Wallace Barnes calendars and day planners with the Nantucket illustrations.

Perhaps it is our history as somewhat of a procrastinator on this issue (does going to buy a calendar after the first of the new year qualify as procrastinating?) but we really did not expect to sell so many this early!

With that we send a wish that everyone enjoys a wonderful Fall weekend!

  1. Lands End has recently won me over on three counts: 1) Petite sizing 2) Free hemming 3) Always a code for free shipping.

    Love this new collection too! Thanks for sharing, tp!

  2. I agree with the above – Lands End has taken ahold of me in the past year or so. I love their sweaters and totes and shoes. Now I can add cardigans, coats (like I need one in S. Fl.!) and scarfs. They are definitely becoming, more desirable, at least for me!

  3. Ooooh I love this new lands end collection… I haven’t bought anything but tote bags from there in years… but I see a shopping trip in my future
