Which Twin Cities shopping center is This? Part Deux… April 3, 2011

One of the things that kept Shareology alive during the Winter of Discontent was the strolling between windows of one of the best merchandised shopping centers in the Twin Cities.   Rhoda Morgenstern would have died to have created these beautiful windows:

blue and white sky: 6 inch wide division

 

blue and white sky: 6 feet wide division

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

sweet dreams are made of this window....

 

oooopppps, I'm dripping pure gold......

OK, so which Twin Cities shopping center is this????

Shareology has found her share of LBD’s to enjoy at Galleria….but last week she added a new category:

The long black dress:

Granted, the urge to wear cute short dresses during the holidays is tough to ignore — but this long black dress in the BCBG MaxAzria window is just delightful.   And while we’re at it, the white netting pretty much echos the Minneapolis landscape today.  And it’s beautiful merchandising!

Last Sunday, April 25, Jackie Crosby had an article in the Strib that really got Shareology thinking.   With the opening of Louis Vuitton in Galleria looming and the redo on Mall of America’s South Side in progress, does Minneapolis St. Paul have enough luxury buyers to support all the luxury retailing opportunities about to be available? 

Let’s take a peek at the possibilities:

The above new plans, found posted in the South Side of MOA, include Italian porcelain tile, Swarovski crystal chandeliers, and marble trimmings.  A wall mural reveals current and future MOA offerings (Hugo Boss to open in August):

Turning the South Side of MOA into Luxury Buyers Nirvana is one way to update MOA, unfortunately  as this work is ongoing for the next few months, the current look is more like:

Meanwhile, over at Galleria, retail nirvana includes BCBGMaxAzria and Coach:

Over on the western end of Galleria, Tiffany eagerly awaits the early May opening of its neighbor, Louis Vuitton:

Well, what do YOU think,  dear Shareology reader?  Does the Twin Cities have enough luxury seekers to support both these well-known malls?  Shareology wants to know!
