From the Associated Press: Specialty apparel retailer Urban Outfitters Inc. said Thursday that its same-store sales dipped 1 percent in the fiscal fourth quarter due to current…

Hello anthro (newsletter)

This month’s anthro newsletter reveals the origins of the sought-after Corsage Sweater Jacket from 2007 that makes an appearance every so often on eBay (it’s the photo second from the left in the collage above). I loved this mini-article! Keep them coming, Anthropologie.

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Yes, Anthro birthday discounts do exist!

Well, hello, I said to myself checking the mail yesterday. You see there was a little brown envelope from Anthropologie for me.
