"At Ann Taylor, our professional wear-to-work, knit top and dress categories continued to show strength, with color and novelty items particularly strong, while neutrals were challenging. In addition, sweaters continued to be difficult, and we were somewhatmore promotional than we had planned at Ann Taylor in order to continue to maintain healthy inventory positions."
