I finally had the opportunity to check out the relatively new Mango collaboration with JCPenney in person and wanted to give you a little report. First, you must know that I really like Mango--a Spanish fashion retailer popular in Europe--and was thrilled to see them join forces with JCPenney because that meant two things. One, that the collection would be accessable, as there are a lot of JCPenney locations in the country (and the only Mango in the US is in New York's SoHo District); and two, that it would likely be affordable. And while a few things seem a bit overpriced to me, there are many sales going on at any given time, which make the pieces quite budget-friendly.
Please note that not every JCPenney carries the MNG by Mango line so be sure to call first if you're interested in seeing/shopping the collection. I'm excited to keep checking back each season to see what they come up with next. I think someone has finally figured out how to ride Targets's coattails, don't you?
