Crossing over that line at 50, and realizing, at most, one half of your life may be over, can bring on a touch of rebelliousness!! For example, on Fridays at the school where we work, all faculty are asked to wear school spirit shirts and jeans. Gigi and I struggle with this one just a bit…we love the jeans part…it is just the spirit shirt where we really throw obedience out the window!! I do not want to spend Act II in a spirit polo…but I love the idea of a well styled casual look on Fridays! So far, no one has complained that we are dressing up a bit!

JC Penney’s Rebels Against Sales:
Now, I am just curious…but have you seen the new strategy from JC Penney’s…..the NO MORE SALES ever strategy.
Their ads feature over-taxed shoppers inundated with sales brochures and coupons, screaming….and conclude with the words ENOUGH IS ENOUGH….JCP.
I know they are attacking the ALL SALES-ALL THE TIME Strategy of Kohls. But I am not so sure that it will work…psychologically, I love getting a great deal at KOHLS during Power Hours with my combination of coupons from online-newspaper-text alert-see how low you can go strategy!! Also, I like what Kohls offers…such as the great Simply Vera (Wang) look from Gigi today!

JCP now says they will have low prices all of the time….40% off always. But, I am not sure they have quality merchandise that makes me want to experience the low prices. In recent months, I have seen the selection to be less than desirable. This doesn’t motivate me to shop there…what about you?
What do you think?? Will the new strategy work??
