Retailers are pulling the trigger on Black Friday deals earlier than ever this year. A prelude to Walmart Corp.’s special offers bowed today on walmart.com. The retail behemoth is listing 18 deals — to whet consumers’ appetites for the main event that kicks off on walmart.com at 10 p.m. on Nov. 21, which is two hours earlier than last year.
Amazon launched a Countdown to Black Friday Sale on Nov. 5 with prices slashed on women’s private label apparel. “Up to 50 percent off women’s fashion from our brands,” screams a message on the online and digital giant’s web site. Amazon, which launched a number of new brands this year, is reportedly seeing a lackluster response from consumers, especially women.
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
