Drive-by shopping, facebook checking and online scoping says most Charlotte locations are sold out on women’s clothing and shoes (except swim & lingerie), sold out on most girls sizes in clothing (more available online than in stores),  and sold thru on lots but not all housewares. The South Blvd store at Carolina Pavillion had some stock left, zig zag flats and clothing being returned as I was there. I’m told on Facebook that the Blakeney store had plenty of the grey pumps left.   And the Mooresville store is purported to be in better shape than most if Missoni outweighs Mileage for you.  Word from the employees? There will be new deliveries – this Friday and next Wednesday.  But call first.
Finally, never fear, lots of stuff will be returned to your local tar-jay. Just bide your time.

A.M. Mayhem at Missoni for Target.

Read about our early morning shopping trip to check out the new Missoni for Target. We scooped it out – and can tell you that it is selling as fast as they are stocking.  If what we saw is any indication, this will be a huge sell-out for Target.     Also read our 6 pm UPDATE on the crash of Target’s website thanks to this rollout.    Check it out.

What are the two MUST HAVE accessories this fall?

Well, if we learned anything from Fashion’s Night Out Charlotte last week, we learned that we were right.  Fashionable ladies must learn to say the F-word this Fall.  Say it.  F, F, F, F, F.  Say it early and say it often.  Click here to check out what the F is going on at our local shops.  And click here to see what the F is happening at South Park Mall.
