The brands have been brought together under a new contemporary lifestyle tab under Women's. The contemporary lifestyle tab will expand in October to include a robust site that will allow customers to mix and match pieces, search for pieces by designer or category, share looks with friends via Facebook, and more. Furthermore, a specialty “Little Red Book” catalog to be mailed on Sept. 16 that will highlight for customers a variety of styles from the Company's contemporary lifestyle assortment.
