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.
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.”
The Men’s looks are also solid.
The merchandise is already available for ordering online at the new Lands’ End Canvas website.
Those on Twitter may have seen our Tweet about Lands’ End offering a Friends and Family discount of 25% off regular priced merchandise; click here to take advantage of the offer – it expires at midnight on the 16th. (NOTE: This is not applicable to the new Canvas collection.)
Also offering something new, Polo Ralph Lauren, adding Tote Bags to their Create Your Own line.
We close with a quick reminder about our 2010 Calendars: they are going quickly.
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!
