Bazaar Does Twilight, Lilly Car Revealed

Hello-Hello and Happy-Happy Friday!

It is a doubly happy day because we are still enjoying our house guest, and will be off shortly for a little retail therapy.

We begin with a wise move at Talbots in response to a wardrobe choice made by First Lady Michelle Obama.

The retailer is stepping up efforts to capitalize on such occasions.

Talbots may be taking a cue from J. Crew, very aggressive in exploiting multiple First Family appearances in their apparel and accessories. Brooks Brothers and Hickey Freeman have also used similar marketing techniques when the President is wearing their apparel.

Yesterday’s Times carried a story about Mickey Mouse, “After Mickey’s Makeover, Less Mr. Nice Guy

Disney Interactive Studio

According to the story:

“Mickey as he will appear in the video game Epic Mickey. The game, to be released next fall, will show the character’s darker side.”

Ummm… does Mickey need a darker side?

More Friday Fun for fans of Twilight: New Moon; the December Bazaar showcases stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

Of course, some real Friday Fun might best be found at South Coast Plaza, where the new Henri Bendel officially opens their new store today. Perhaps Muffy Martini can float down to Orange County and file a first-hand report for all of us at some point in the future!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

And because it is all about fun today, we close with an absolutely fabulous item from launching this week:

Meet the E-Lilly by Lilly Pulitzer and Tomberlin Electric Car.  The news release better describes the vehicle:

“It’s 100% road worthy, charges with any standard 110v household outlet, and travels for over 30 miles on a single charge. The E-Lilly can be customized with just about anything you want…2-seat, 4-seat, golf bag, trunk and more… even a monogram, and will deliver just in time for the holidays!”

If asking the Christmas Fairy for one of these, they start at $12,995. Our reaction to seeing this little treasure? TDF. Completely and totally TDF.

On that happy note, we hope everyone enjoys a bright and beautiful weekend!

Preppy Sales & Cartier Polo

Hello-Hello!

As general mayhem continues here at the Prepatorium we remain grateful for our sunny summer skies, while harboring hopes our preppy pals in Texas and California receive some desperately needed rain.

We begin with a few reminders in our Sales and Savings category, beginning with one that is new to us, compliments of a brilliant blogging friend, Preppy in New England. Gaze upon the remarkable Lobsterland Collection at Stonewall Kitchen.

From fabulosities like the bucket seen above to the mugs below, the entire collection is now on sale.

Bergdorf Goodman continues to promote their sale.

And Lacoste continues their ‘Last Call Sale’ as well.

Additionally, Brooks Brothers, J. Crew, Talbots, Tory Burch and a host of other preppish stores continue with their sales/promotions/clearance/discounts/etc.

In our “Recent Activities of the Royalty” category we share a few pictures from Cartier International Polo Day 2009 at Guards Polo Club this past Sunday. First, HRH, Prince Charles in the royal box.

We thought the Prince was having a rather good tie day.

The event is a highlight of the social season; our next photo features Chloe Delevigne and Alexander Spencer Churchill.

Apparently Leonardo DiCaprio was in attendance as well, accompanying ‘Pussycat Doll’ Ashley Roberts. (Rumor has it the handsome actor is now dating Ms. Roberts. Gasp.)

For those interested in the sporting event being held on the field, Argentina ultimately bested the English team, 12-5.

One of the many cultural phenomenon with which we are not familiar is the wildly popular Twilight film and book series. Because we know some Princess readers do enjoy the dramas, we thought it a good idea to share the news that Nordstrom will be selling a line of clothing inspired by Twilight.

The new line from the retailer will also offer jewelry.

This story provides more detail on the merchandise:

“T-shirts, tank tops and sweatshirts with logos including “Team Edward” (a vampire in the series), “Team Jacob” (a werewolf in the series), and “Forks High School Phys. Ed. Dept.” The store will also sell “I Love Edward” and “I Love Jacob” necklaces and pendants.”

The collection will be available online October 1, but to see it in person at stores one will have to wait until October 15.  The newest Twilight film (New Moon) opens nationally November 20.

Are we the only walking, talking human left who hasn’t yet partaken of Twilight in any format?  Do tell, we’re simply dying to know.

With that it is sayonara for today, we’re off for our stint at the Senior Center!
