The Fourth is over:  what to look forward to?  Ah, yes, the luxurification of Mall of America.  Shareology popped in the morning of the 6th, and found that changes on the South Side are proceeding at a fast pace. Microsoft update at end of this post; let’s start with bright shiny objects:  those crystal chandeliers are much more dangley and beautiful than Shareology anticipated!  The marble floors ain’t bad either!   

the one by Bloomies......

 

the one by Victoria's.....

 

the one Shareology shot straight up....

 

Yep, Shareology does love her some bright, shiny objects….. Hugo Boss is not open quite yet, but they are hiring:  (gotta love the door panel switch!)   

    

If you didn't get hired at Louis Vuitton, here's your next chance....

 

 For those who want an update on when Microsoft arrives at MOA, a clue is When Baby Gap is vacating for its new space?  That’s July 15 — we’re only one build away after that….. Since both Baby Gap and Gap Kids are heading down the hall to join their Gap relatives, that Microsoft store is looking fairly large in terms of square footage.   

New space down the South hall for all the Gap Brands.....

 

 So that sets the stage for the duel to come at MOA between Apple and Microsoft:   

Let the games begin!

 

Gap Kids gives Microsoft a great corner location!

 

So:  the luxurification of South Side at MOA is happening a lot faster than Shareology anticipated.  You can already walk on marble and have crystals shining in your eyes….and soon, very soon, Microsoft across the hall from Apple!  Now there’s a holiday!

Spring Break at Mall of America: iPads, butterflies and roller coasters! April 11, 2010

Shareology dropped in for a coffee meeting at Mall of America last week, and found herself in the midst of Spring Break celebrations!  Turns out there were news in the Apple Store (iPads!) in Nickelodeon Universe (Butterfly Bay!  Roller Coasters!) plus another tidbit or two….. 

Let’s go exploring –we’re headed towards the Apple store first–     

Oops, first, did I mention Bon Jovi was in town?

     

     

     

     

     

Next , we’re off to Nickelodeon Universe!     

     

     

     

     

     

Whew:   Shareology needs to catch her breath after all that excitement!   What’s this?  Something New!  Butterfly Bay!   Let’s go inside:     

     

     

     

Before you leave Butterfly Bay, make sure you don’t have any hitchhikers on you…these butterflies don’t mind hitching a ride!     One more stop before we leave:    

Nothing like having Sir Paul's daughter design an outfit for your kids!

Spring Break may be over but the iPads, the butterflies and the roller coasters  are waiting for you at Mall of America.  We bid adieu for now, but we’ll be back!
