This just in….apparently Brooks Brothers is going to move forward with a stand-alone Black Fleece boutique *if* you believe some of the online reports, a few of which are simply sites quoting each other and those sites are… quoting… each… other. Regular readers might recall our whiny little tirade previous post about Browne’s existing Black Fleece Brooks Brothers collection
Sunday’s NY Times had a simply wonderful story about a most Prepalicious emporium, The Monogram Shop, in East Hampton (on Newton). The story discussed the boutique’s sales of candidate cups as part of their Indecision ’08 promotion.
Now because we know you care about the economy and want to make a personal contribution, and because we know you are great vote-casting Americans, here is how (we think) you can cast a vote all your very own at the Shop. Cups are $3 each and you can order an Obama cup, a Hillary cup, or a McCain cup. (We don’t know if there are minimums for online orders.)
Now we feel obligated to let everyone know that Lisa (Mother) and Hadley (daughter) Smith have uncommonly good taste and they do sell more than plastic cups at The Monogram Shop; proof of that is below.
Not to mention, fabulous selection of oh-so-chic cosmetic cases, an absolutely perfect as a gift this summer. Do pop in for a broad range of treats you can’t resist!
Switching gears here, all of you residing in the Princeton area, or within a short drive, a reminder about Thursday’s Girl’s Night Out in downtown Princeton. If this tickles your fancy, online registration is still open and all you have to do is send an RSVP to events@PalmerSquare.com, or call 609-921-2333 x124. You get lots of goodies, including a free shopping bag, discount coupons and other treats. There are some great shops too: Kate Spade, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Kitchen Kapers, Ralph Lauren and more. Definitely worth your time, if you can make the time!
Let it not be said that you don’t receive the very latest in preppy news here at the Prepatorium offices located in the Intergalactic Headquarters of the Preppy Princess and the Preppy Planet.
