It’s Christmas In July For QVC, Colbert And Lord & Taylor

July 19, 2016

We’ve blogged about it once and now we’ll do it again: We hate the home-shopping network practice of having Christmas-in-July sales.

QVC held its own annoying one last week, where we had to watch host Rick Domeier hawking fake Christmas trees. But most of the home shopping channels have jumped on this bandwagon.

And now, for what we’ve noticed for the first time, brick-and-mortar retailers are having Christmas-in-July sales. That includes Lord & Taylor.

We even saw that Macy’s had a “Black-Friday-in-July” event.

We can’t escape.

As we sat down to write this blog Monday night, our fellow Montclair, N.J., resident Stephen Colbert was doing a song-and-dance number about the Republican convention.

In his convention song, Colbert warbled, “It’s like Christmas in July!”

Oy vey!

ShopNBC Names QVC Vet Scott Garozzo Director Of Jewelry

April 27, 2010

QVC and Lord & Taylor veteran Scott Garozzo has joined ShopNBC as Director of Jewelry, the home shopping network said Monday.

Most recently, Garozzo served as senior vice president of merchandising & product development at SHR & Simmons Jewelry Co. Prior to that, he held merchandising positions in the jewelry category at QVC and Lord & Taylor.

Garozzo is being granted inducement stock options as of his first day of employment with ShopNBC, covering the right to purchase 25,000 shares of the company’s common stock. The options will have an exercise price equal to the closing price of the company’s common stock on the date of the grant.

Now You Can Get Your Godiva Chocolate, And Chocolate-Scented Candles, At QVC

November 28, 2009

Premium sweets are coming to QVC: Godiva Chocolates arrive next Friday.

The No. 1 home shopping channel will have a half-hour show, from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., where it will debut the tasty chocolates. Godiva is usually sold in company-owned stores in malls or in department stories such as Lord & Taylor and Bloomingsale’s.

Here is what QVC’s Web site has to say:

“Since 1926, Godiva Chocolate, originally named in honor of Lady Godiva, continues to be the leader in premium chocolates. Master Chocolatier Joseph Draps introduced Godiva chocolate to Belgium when he opened his first shop in Brussels, unveiling his unique formula of rich chocolate with unparalleled smoothness. Today, the same mouthwatering assortment comes to QVC, offering you and your loved ones gourmet chocolate of the highest quality, made from the purest ingredients. Treat your family, friends and holiday guests to delectable chocolates, beautifully presented in exquisite European-style gold ballotins and festive, seasonal packaging.”

The priciests Godiva item that QVC has, a $53 Chocolatier Indulgence Gift Tower, is already on Wait List.

QVC is also selling two Godiva Chocolate-scented candles for $30.

If you’re in the boondocks and not near any Godiva Chocolate stores, we guess getting the goodies from QVC makes sense.

But we’re not going to pay shipping and handling for something we can buy at the Short Hills Mall, if we could afford it.
