Pocket Square Parade

Pocket Square Profiles Composite Fancy Pocket Squares seem all the rage this season. So by special request I add to my Kerchief and Pocket Square thead. Though no true store fixtures here, I thought stepping through examples of this seasons offerings might be a good overview and way to kick-off coverage. CLICK through the gallery for a closer look at each style.

Pocket Square Plantings

Pocket Square Garden Blossoms Main

From a distance looking like a small garden or tray of plant seedlings, an acrylic tray allows Pocket Squares to be displayed in anything but a square manner. It may take a second for you to realize what is offered, but ties and other nearby men’s accessories quickly provide visual clues. CLICK the gallery to step successively closer and see how it works.

Pocket Square Jumble

Pocket Square Bouquet Main

I liked the splash of color and informality among the strictly organized ties, but it was just those aspects that made it difficult to distinguish what these were even close up. Maybe one or more folded, draped or hung would have added clarity and more quickly communicated “Pocket Square.” Please understand this is not a criticism. I merely try to learn from others and add a bit if I can. CLICK the gallery for various views. Overall organization is a declined clear acrylic tray with sidwalls for containment.

Pocket Squares Piles

Kerchief Folded Main

Kerchief Folded LevelAn unused, out-of-the-way space was not left unmerchandised by floor staff. Folded pocket squares take up the slack and add a spot of corner color. This is certainly not a main display, but possibly echos the accessory and seasons accessory color to out-of-the-way places across the department.

Acorn® Celebrates Earth Day

Ditto Acorn Slipper Hanger Overall2

Ditto Acorn Slipper Hanger OverallAcorn® throws the Earth a bone with these dog-bone-shape hangers for merchandising slippers. They are good for the environment made entirely of recycled paper, starch-based adhesives, and even printed in soy-based inks. I can’t think of anything with less impact in all of retail and better as an Earth Day FixturesCloseUp post. On top of it, the slippers sure look comfy enough to spend a few shekels on. Do your feet and the earth a favor. Try Acorn® slippers with their sustainable packaging. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup or investigate further at Acorn® and Ditto® Sustainable Solutions.

Retail As Civilizing Influence

Child-Height Sink and Fixtures Main

A well furnished restroom is a joy to users, and in this case the training ground for the next generation of gentile and civilized shoppers. What fun to have a sink at your height and have dad show you how to dry your hands in a state-of-the-art Dyson Air Blade. This even brought back memories of early restroom etiquette training by my own father. I didn’t know those memories where still embedded. Does your restroom create such a positive impact on users?

Floral Flourish in the Restroom

Restroom Floral Bouquet Amenity Main

Restroom Floral Bouquet Amenity AuxAll restroom amenities need not address the practical. A single simple orchid can elevate a fairly standard restroom and add an inviting and upscale touch. And this couldd be a cross sell if your store has a houseplant or landscape department. A small identifying sign and cross sell to the department would do nicely in that case.

Sustainable Headform Concept

Ditto Sustainable Slatwall Headform Main

A head form created from slotted panels saving material and eliminating the need for a bulky head form core. Materials are sustainable recyclable and, I suspect, even ship flat. Though I normally do not promote manufacturers, I simply had to leave Ditto Sustainable Brand Solution’s name on the gallery of photos from their site. See that this eco-friendly merchandising was employed by Acorn®. Kudos to booth Ditto and Acorn.

Bib Tag Piggybacks Basket Tag

A traditional promotional technique, Bib Tags are not only for shelf edge. Here one hawks a special from Basket Tag (Hang Tag) on heavy-duty Endless Basket or Wire Shelf. The upper portion of the Bib Tag documents the regular price and product info, the bottom half offers a short term promotional price. At the end of the promotional period, one tears off the bottom and the regular price carries on alone. CLICK the thumbnail for a long view of the tagged items.

Screaming Yellow Hang Tags

Screaming Yellow Hang Tags Main

Though not totally furnished and stocked, someone was out to ultimately call attention to this Fence equipped gondola. Lacking merchandise and labels the setup gave me an opportunity to zero in on Hang Tags alone. These Label Holders zip-tie to Fencing, Wire Shelf, Wire Basket, Wire Grid and other similar fixtures. They are offered in a host of stock colors, and can be color-matched if you need to reinforce your corporate color storewide. I suggest that you use similar color label stock, rather than cover your color Hang Tag with stock white labels. See the last frame of the gallery below for a hint at matching Yellow Signage.

Split Ring Tag Team

Split Ring Mount Oval Tag Main

Split Ring Mount Oval Tag AngledSpecial promo tags to flag merchandise and price are an effective in-store technique. But not to the greatest degree if the merchandise is not recognizable. These Split-Ringed Oval Tags help by illustrating the items. I sometimes prefer Split Rings because of the extra dimensionality a free hanging tag offers, and the fact it can waft a bit in the HVAC current or passerby generated slipstream.

Tricky mold job this. Normally one might see a Hang or Basket Tag attached by a separate Split Ring. Here it is integrally molded as an entire unit.

Dylan Lauren Does Easter

Dylans Candy Bar Easter Main

What had previously been scattered displays of Dylan’s® candy, coalesced into a crescendo of a display for Easter, all elements grouped and massed visually. Even though much of Easter’s displays were set up in this store, I compliment the retailers visual merchandising team on moving them around, and grouping and regrouping. It kept the store looking fresh with seemingly new surprises on every visit. I am sure Dylan Lauren (Daughter of Ralph Lauren) appreciated the extra attention too.

Gucci® Male Dress Form Murse

Gucci® Murse and Male Dress Form

Gucci® Murse CloseUpMany of the Gucci® offerings here could be unisex. I am not MetroSexual enough to categorize accurately. But a brown leather Dress Form leans more toward a male orientation, so I choose to consider the Grey Gucci Shoulderbag a Murse rather than Purse. The Baseball Cap and several other bag offerings could look good in the hands of a man, but others seemed more effeminent. It is here my wife and I part ways. In here world when in doubt, who cares. To me, when in doubt, avoid. And you though men courageous? Not so in fashion. CLICK the thumbnail for a closer look at the merchandise. What say you; Murse or Purse?

JCPenny® Brings on Spring

JCPenny Bring On Spring Main

As if to challenge what had been a tough Winter, JCPenny® says “Bring it On” to Spring. And it couldn’t be too soon for me. Last week in my Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania we had both an 80º day and a below-freezing night of snow storms. Actual Spring Would be nice. Step through various colorful views in the gallery. See that one mannequin has the added detail of Bunny Ears. The large blue flower blossom at top insured you could not overlook this display from anywhere on the selling floor.

Joe Fresh® Hang Tags

Joe Fresh Hang Tag Main

Only belatedly did I notice that not only Joe Fresh® apparel was identified, but Worthington® offerings as well. All complimented each other so well I initially thought they were a single, coherent display rather than cross-brand offering. My main interest however was the the use, design and construction of the Hang Tags as branding and merchandise identifiers. CLICK the gallery to step through various focuses, then follow the threads below.
