Fashion Emergency – Victoria’s Secret To Stop Selling Swimwear

Say it isn’t so! Lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret recently announced that after this year, they will no longer be selling swimwear. Victoria’s Secret has been a major swim retailer for years now, even recently hosting annual swim specials along with their annual fashion show on According to Buzzfeed News the company plans to, at least in part, replace empty store space with activewear.

This news comes after L Brands, Victoria’s Secret parent company, announced lower than average sales this past August. L Brands had previously stated that swimwear brings in $500 million in revenue each year. CEO of L Brands Les Wexner released a statement earlier this month saying that the company is “making these changes to accelerate our growth and to strengthen the business for the long term by narrowing our focus and simplifying our operating model on” This comes as a major upset to women everywhere who shop Victoria’s Secret swimwear for the hottest bikinis every year.

What does this mean for us mere mortals? Where can we turn for the best bikinis now? Maybe another retailer will step up and take over the void left by Victoria’s Secret. How amazing would it be if JustFab decided to added swimwear to their selection of shoes, handbags and jewelry? JustFab is a very popular online clothing retailer where after taking a short style survey, you are matched up with a selection of shoes, purses, apparel and jewelry, all tailored to your unique style. JustFab looks are styled by celebrity stylists, and you only pay for the looks you want. If JustFab decided to add bikinis to the mix, I think their popularity could skyrocket. As far as I know there are not currently any discussions about making this happen, but if just maybe if we band together and get the idea out there *wink wink JustFab* they might just run with it.

For now it looks like we will just have to stock up on all the Victoria’s Secret swimwear we can and hope that someone, somewhere can fill their shoes one day. Now please excuse me while I join women everywhere and cry..

Dog food manufactures got the wakeup call from conscientious pet owner clamoring all over facebook for high quality dog chow and they responded. New territory has been blazon in the pet food market with new offerings like: refrigerated dog meals, veggie mixes, natural probiotics blends, and sweet potato medley.

It is a one-stop, complete dog food plan from puppyhood to senior age.

It is overdue, the concept of different foods for varying age group of dogs.

CCMP Moves Forward After Stephen Murray’s Untimely Passing

Before the company officially adopted the acronym CCMP Capital in 2006, it was known as JPMorgan Chase Partners. Several buyouts and acquisitions later, the private equity firm is still one of the most successful in the world. Today, CCMP Capital has a portfolio of $12 billion and offices all over the world. The company’s specialized expertise invests heavily in consumer/retail, industrial, healthcare and chemical/energy.

The company was founded as Chemical Venture Partners in 1984. Over two decades, it served as Chemical Bank’s private equity arm. Over the years, the company continued to expand by acquiring Chase Manhattan, The Beacon Group, JP Morgan Chase and Robert Fleming & Co. just to name a few. When JPMorgan Partners split from JPMorgan Chase, CCMP Capital was the result. During this time, a number of private equity firms were spinning off from major banks.

Steve Murray was the CEO of CCMP Capital until his death in early 2015. Murray had been at the firm for over two decades when he suddenly took medical leave due to an undisclosed illness. Steve Murray was instrumental in guiding CCMP through a number of tenuous spinoffs. The Boston College and Columbia Business School alum was active in his community and served on many local boards. “Our deepest condolences and prayers are to his wife and children,” says newly installed CCMP CEO Greg Brenneman on The Fortune. “His contributions will be sorely missed.”

CCMP holds the portfolio of some of the most prestigious companies in the world including Aramark, Warner Chilcott, The Hillman Group, Quiznos Sub, Crosstown Traders, The Tennis Channel, Guitar Center Inc. and Pinnacle Food Group. Under Brenneman’s leadership, CCMP expects to acquire new clients and expand its bottom line even more. “It is our goal to provide efficiency and growth to all of the corporations we manage,” says Brenneman.

Good News and Big Moves for Andy Wirth

Residents and the skiing community in the Lake Tahoe area share the memories of a tense but ultimately good past. The tension comes from the difference between proposed futures for the area. The conflict circles around supporters of incorporation and Squaw Valley LLC. The point man for the incorporation is Fred Ilfield, and at the wheel for Squaw Valley is CEO Andy Wirth. Naturally, both sides believe their proposed idea is better for business and residents in the community. For the side of incorporation the position rests on the notion of accountability. For Wirth and Squaw Valley, it is more about growth and service.

It turns out the Squaw Valley CEO has more will than the competition. Because even though both sides have substantial amounts of cash invested in their proposal, those wanting incorporation throw in the towel. Ilfield has thoughts as to why Wirth opposes incorporation. To these expressed concerns, Wirth remains firm that incorporation itself costs the community in the long run. With the tug-a-war between the sides over, a plan for growth that includes Squaw Valley and her sister resort Alpine Meadows gets the green light. This plan comes in the form of a gondola.

The plan to join and grow the resorts together comes after Wirth’s appointment to the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board. This appointment comes from the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitor’s Authority. Wirth is not alone in his appointment. There are two other members to the board appointed by the county. Wirth serves as the Chairman. This good news follows a few years after a particularly annoying drought. It also brings together two great organizations without the need for all the rigors of transporting between the two resorts. The change for the area is big, but in the long run definitely beneficial to the ski goers.

Doe Deere Gets Goes Against the Grain

Doe Deere doesn’t make any promises that she will follow the cosmetic rule book. Anyone that has seen her Lime Crime makeup products should not expect her to follow the rules. She is a rebel in the cosmetics industry, and she is doing what she wants. This is the young CEO that doesn’t follow the trail that has been set by others. She follows no one.

This is what the fans of Doe Deere love about her. She is this type of humorous CEO that wears her own products. That is rare because most people do not even know the CEO of Cover Girl or Sephora makeup products. No one really knows who is behind Mary Kay know that the founder is no longer in place. With Lime Crime you don’t have to ask. You can be certain that Doe Deere is the one that is promoting her own products. This is a strong way to gain customer loyalty. It helps people stay familiar with the brand. This also lets people see that this is a brand that is endorsed by the person that created it. This is hard to find at times because so many people look for celebrities to endorse products. Doe Deere saves herself a ton of money on marketing by promoting her brand on her own.

She doesn’t really need superstars on the payroll for Lime Crime or Unicorn makeup though. She has the ability to sell this without a lot of marketing. This has a lot to do with her wildly successful Internet campaign. She is doing so much through social media. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to spend heavily on television or magazine advertising. Her customer base is young, and young people don’t read magazines. They log on to websites. Young people don’t spend a lot of time watching television. They download their movies and television shows through torrents if they are not streaming. Doe Deere is a young person so she knows this. She knows how to reach the younger crowd because she is part of it.

This gives her the ability to establish a brand on her own terms. She has done something bold and created makeup brands that look different from what is on the market. This has been her claim to fame, and the abstract colors are gaining a large audience.
