Seriously, deliriously happy it is Friday!!!!!!
Celine is growing, and I for one am deliriously happy about it! There is an outlet recently opened at the Woodbury Commons just outside of NYC. (Insert extremely high pitched squeal of happiness by reversecommuter here!!!!!). Celine has also just opened the brand spanking new doors of their new flagship store in London on Mount Street (neighbors to Lanvin, Azzaro, Balenciaga and Goyard!). Phoebe Philo is also going to fill up 15 additional new shops internationally including Tokyo, Soho, and Las Vegas. Ahem….Boston please?!!!
J Crew might be going public. Looking for a cash king to come riding into the sunset but not having a happy ending with Japan’s Fast Retailing Co (parent company of J Brand, UNI QLO, Theory and a few others). Talks ended earlier this week in which J Crew was possibly going to be bought by Fast Retailing for $5 BILLION. That is a whole heck of a lot of sushi so the Japanese company went Sayonara. Rumor has it that Mickey is now gearing up for an Initial Public Offering with Goldman Sachs.
Alphabetically very exciting – an IPO for J Crew! Tee Hee! 🙂
Spring has Sprung so slap some tulips in a vase, fill up the champs flute and dress up in something colorful to celebrate!
