A lulu of a window

Ever since Banana Republic closed its big store on the southwest corner of Madison Avenue and 85th street, well over two years ago, the space has remained empty. Not many retailers can afford the steep rent, especially during these tough economic times. Tonight, when I walked by the corner with Rigby, I couldn’t help but notice that the giant windows were now covered with red paper, printed  with inspiring statements in bold white lettering.


Do one thing a day that scares you.

Stress is related to 99% of all illness.

Your outlook on life is a direct reflection of how much you like yourself.

Breathe deeply and appreciate the moment. Living in the moment could be the meaning of life.

That which matters the most should never give way to that which matters the least.

Observe a plant before and after watering and relate these benefits to your body and brain.

Life is full of setbacks. Success is determined by how you handle setbacks.

Friends are more important than money.

The world is changing at such a rapid rate that waiting to implement changes will leave you 2 steps behind. DO IT NOW, DO IT NOW, DO IT NOW!

I loved every one of the thoughts and thank the new retailer that is preparing to move in. It’s Lululemon, the smart and cool athletic apparel brand. Smart move too, because Lululemon’s new space is right below a fancy gym.

    What a timely editorial, and BRAVO ! Lululemon!!! Love their merchandise, and their philosophy!!!

    What a healthy outlook for body/mind in these times of turmoil and uncertainty!!

    Thank you Geri for broadcasting the new opening! Maybe the South Miami store has similar mottos inside the store. I will hand-deliver this e-mail to them. Perhaps it will inspire them to post them in the window! 🙂

    Again, LOVE IT!!!
