I find Shop-Eat-Surf to be a very useful and informative site that I enjoy browsing daily. Shop-Eat-Surf is the first thing I look at every morning to keep up-to-date on the latest talk, events, and happenings in the industry. I must say I am a fan of Shop-Eat-Surf.

It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Nordstrom embraces vampire movie

Retail experts keep saying stores owners need to find creative ways to drive customers into stores.

While Nordstrom and vampires sound like an odd mix, the upscale retailer is jumping on the "Twilight" movie phenomenon and giving teenagers a compelling reason to visit its BP department.

Starting today, Nordstrom is exclusively selling a juniors clothing and jewelry line from the movie that includes T-shirts, hoodies, dresses and jackets. Prices range from $30 for a T-shirt to $48 for a jacket.

The department store is also offering "Twilight Takeover Parties" on Nov. 14 and 15, where stylists will help young women pull together the Twilight look.

For every $50 spent, customers will get one pass to an advance screening of the "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" movie. Shoppers can also register online to win tickets to the movie premiere.

The first movie was a hit, and led to big sales for Hot Topic, which had exclusive rights to some merchandise last year. This year, Hot Topic has T-shirts, accessories and posters, according to its website.

The second installment of the movie hits theaters Nov. 20.
