It takes money to make money. Or, more accurately it takes Pavlovian-trained consumers to purchase items on a self-proclaimed shopping holiday to up revenue. In that vein, RetailMeNot has revealed that it largely benefited from last year’s Amazon Prime Day, signaling that other retailers aside from the behemoth can cash in on the occasion. According to RetailMeNot’s internal data, Amazon Prime Day was the biggest online shopping day during third quarter in 2017.
“Prime Day is a huge opportunity for all retailers,” said Marissa Tarleton, chief marketing officer of RetailMeNot. “This relatively new shopping holiday has quickly become the kickoff for the back-to-school shopping season. In both sales and opportunity, this day is transformative not just for Amazon but for all retailers savvy enough to capitalize on it.”
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
