LONDON — Profits at Mulberry Group plc more than tripled in the six months to Sept. 30 to 3.3 million pounds, or $4.9 million, from 1 million pounds, or $1.5 million, on the back of strong, full-price sales growth in robust markets including the U.K. and the U.S.
And sales show no signs of flagging: In the ten weeks to Dec. 4, Mulberry said global retail sales rose 47 percent, and that full-year performance was likely to exceed market expectations. The spring 2011 wholesale order book is 91 percent higher than last year and orders have not yet closed, the firm said.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
