Shareology is in a state of shock; she’s just back from a trip to Southdale’s just opened Heberger’s store. The shock is the traffic in that store on a Thursday afternoon; lines were 8-10 deep at most checkout counters!!!  It looked like traffic in a Halloween store on the morning of the 31st!!  And yes, the rest of Southdale still looks sad:

The  perennially dark Abercrombie & Fitch  is still non-welcoming and, well… dark.  The contrast couldn’t be more apparent:  next door is the light-filled, welcoming Herberger’s newly opened two days ago.  This corner was so drab that Shareology once did an article on What Shopping Center is this and included a grim shot of the A&F corner of Southdale before Herberger’s opening:

A miracle has occurred; Herberger’s was full of shoppers on all three levels.  Surprise:  you now have another Micheal Kors choice besides the newly minted store at Mall of America:

Brands, brands, brands!! Michael Kors is not alone.  Shareology spotted Ralph Lauren, Coach and an imposing Calvin Klein presence:

Halston once said that the basic fashion neutrals are black, white and red.  From the look of the Calvin offerings in Southdale Herberger’s, that mantra is still going strong.  But wait, one more Calvin Klein display stopped Shareology dead in her tracks:

OMG!!!  A plus size on a mannikin!!!!!  Behind it, sizes up to and including 20!!  In the $150 price range…..  So if you’re larger than a size 0, run, do not walk, to Southdale Herberger’s!! 

Lesson:  Hell has apparently frozen over:  Shareology saw many sizes of the same magnificent red dress on store mannikins, backed up with merchandise to buy!  Happy Holidays, indeed!!
