Email: anthro in our own words

Friday, October 30, 2009

What a great email this month's anthro: in our own words is! I see Anthropologie has switched over to CheetahMail and I'm wondering if this will alleviate the delivery issues many devotees are having.

First Anthropologie officially announces Free Shipping for anthro members living in the United States on orders over $150. Hmm, I think some crafty community members beat them to the punch on that one!

For United States residents who are not anthro members, the promotion will expand on November 2:
We’re currently offering complimentary standard shipping to our anthro members on domestic orders over $150, through December 23. This promotion will be open to everyone on Monday November 2nd. If you are an anthro member but haven’t linked your anthro number to your existing online account, you can do that now to qualify for advance access to complimentary shipping.

The newsletter also teases their holiday ornaments. Kim did an excellent teaser post for these on Anthroholic, check it out if you want to know more. From there, the newsletter turns its attention to the stunning, five act November catalogue which I highlighted this morning. I noticed the catalogue doesn't seem to be loading at the moment but I'm sure it will be back soon.

I just love this picture they chose to highlight above. I did not include in my stream of consciousness this morning because the associated product page wasn't loading but WOW! What a stunning shot.

From the email:
The fifth and final section of our catalog opens with an image that almost never was -- a photo that our art director coined "a favorite of (my) career." (Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that it was shot a stone's throw from his hometown in Yorkshire.) As the story goes, our crew was on their way to another location when they came across this barren stretch of road, which turned out to be the perfect, serene backdrop to our red sweater dress.

Gorgeous. Beautiful photos abound in this month's catalogue.
