Women's Dress Sales Surge

In the 12 months ending April 30, 2007, dress sales had increased by 30%, compared to a 5% increase for overall women's clothing, according to the NPD group. [1] In trying to understand the fickleness of women's fashion, one popular theory is that dresses--which are one piece--make it easier to match one's top and bottom apparel. Target (TGT) and British department store H&M are examples of retailers that have keyed in on this fashion trend.

  • One interesting complementary trend is the increase in pantyhose, which is produced by companies such as Hanesbrands (HBI), maker of leading brand Leggs.

Yoga Wear: A Lucrative Niche

  • Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU) is a high-end yoga clothing company ($165M 2006 revenues, $3B market cap) that IPO'd in May 2007. From May to October, the company's stock price appreciated over 50% due to the growing popularity of yoga, which attracts a wealthy demographic with high disposable income. The company has about 60 retail outlets in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Japan, where luxury fashion consumption is high. The company benefits from increased spending on healthy living and aging American baby boomers, with whom yoga activity is disproportionately high

Growing things is so much fun! I grew punmkips last summer at work, and many beautiful scented flowers. But it's funny, plants always seem to suddenly grow when you least expect it. Like if you forget to check them for a few days. It's a nice surprise when you find them later :-)
