    Have learned that an Exclusive solid will only remain exclusive for 6 months then any store can order it. /unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ />

    Harrods had NM exclusives last year but no one would tell us why.

    Ann,

    This is strange indeed, when I worked for Lauder in a general distrubition store we could not order anything, what we got was only what the warehouse sent us.

    Maybe it is different for stores like Saks, NM, Harrods and Nordstroms??? <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />

    Yeah – how odd!! The term 'exclusive' ain't what it used to be!!

    Interesting. Wonder if that means the Harrods ones can be ordered elsewhere.

    After reading this post I was in our Galleria shopping mall and decided to stop in NM and ask if anyone had the answer. SA Shari was surprised and concerned to think that NM might not have the exclusives and promised to let me know what she found. Here is what she received from her Estee account executive in reply:

    “The scoop has always been…that NM and Saks will have an exclusive to their solids for 6 months…then it can go into the Las Vegas and Manhassett stores, (the only 2 free standing stores)…that is it…they will not go to Burdines, Macys, L&T…etc…There is store in Cananda that will get them as well, but they are very expensive”

    Does this help confuse the issue?

    HI PAMELA AND EVERYONE……….IT CONFUSES THINGS I THINK! IT SEEMS THAT THE MANHASSET STORE GETS EVERYTHING BEFORE SAKS AND NEIMAN'S…I HAVE HAD CALLS FROM MY REP. AT SAKS IN VEGAS EXCITED ABOUT THE “EXCLUSIVES” AND I HAVE HAD TO BREAK THE NEWS TO HER THAT I ALREADY HAD IT IN MY POSSESSION THROUGH MICKEY IN NYC – NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS MAKES IT VERY HARD FOR THE SALES STAFF IN THE DEPT. STORES. I WOULD RATHER WAIT AND GET THEM THROUGH THE STORES BECAUSE YOU GET 'GIFTS' THAT WAY, BUT I DON'T WANT TO TAKE THE CHANCE THAT THINGS WILL GET SCREWED UP AND THE STORES WON'T RECEIVE ANY!!!

    OH MY GOODNESS, IT IS LATE….I AM CONFUSING MYSELF (AGAIN)

    NIGHTY NIGHT!!! BRENDA

    I got a call from Sak's NYC and she had all the powder compacts (shells) that were “exclusive” to NM and still on the NM website.

    That call was what got me asking questions to other SA's.

    Most SA's , as kind and wonderful as they are , do not have a clue as to what is going on. And I am so confused I sure do not.

    Always in the past we have at least known what solids are coming out and then a photo but not this year.

    Maybe I have been kicked out of the loop. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
