Garnet Hill Launches Lilly Pulitzer Home Textiles
Garnet Hill has introduced Lilly Pulitzer bedding and bath as an exclusive. The brightly hued mix-and-max collection includes comforter covers and shams, open stock printed percale sheeting, open stock white percale sheets with colored ruffle trim, quilts, an area rug, bath towels, shower curtains and bath rugs.
Bedding retails start at $45 for a twin fitted sheet. Bath retails range from $14 for a face cloth to $98 for a shower curtain.
The program was designed by Garnet Hill working with the Lilly Pulitzer creative team. This marks the reintroduction of Lilly Pulitzer in home textiles following the demise of previous licensee, Dan River.
“It opens the doorway for thousands of Lilly Pulitzer customers to find bed and bath collections suited to their lifestyle, and in doing so, discover Garnet Hill’s impeccable quality and standards,” said Russ Gaitskill, president of Garnet Hill.
Kohl’s Power is 100% Green
Kohl’s said its purchase of nearly 1.4 billion kilowatt-hours of green energy will cover all of its electricity needs for the year.
Green power is electricity generated from renewable resources such as wind and solar that produce a net zero increase in carbon dioxide emissions.
“Starting 2010 at 100% green power helps reduce our carbon footprint and brings us another step closer to achieving our goal of reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by the end of this year,” said Ken Bonning, Kohl’s executive vice president of store planning and logistics.
Kohl’s generates solar power on-site at nearly 80 locations in six states, with solar providing 20% to 50% of a location’s energy. At stores built according to Kohl’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified prototype, up to 35% of the 100% green power is generated by landfill gas in partnership with Waste Management. The retailer also purchases power from wind farm projects in Texas and the Dakotas.
Target Cagey on Future Pricing
During its analyst day in Philadelphia last month, Target execs were asked about product pricing. Kathee Tesija, executive vp, merchandising, acknowledged that Target is being quoted higher fabric prices but said merchandise coming in for early fall is slightly lower in cost. What comes after remains an open question, she added, but she expects to see late fall prices “level off.”
