In the pause: On this Cyber Monday, meet Privé Revaux, my favorite popup store of the season featuring an online brand

20171126_173313Happy Cyber Monday!

I was walking to the Times Square subway from the Bryant Park Holiday Market and stopped short when I saw a set of retail windows that celebrated Artists, Explorers, and Dreamers. I went inside to find an art installation that featured a graffitied subway car, a space scape, and an artist’s work room. They encourage you to go in and snap selfies so Emerson Page did a little photo shoot.

The art installation doubled as a retail popup for online sunglass brand, Privé Revaux. The designer sunglasses are all handcrafted, polarized, and $29.95 in over 100 styles. Now if only all shopping experiences, online and in brick-and-mortar, could come with a side of art, we’d all feel a little more inspired and a little less tired during our holiday shopping.

If you’re in NYC, check out the Privé Revaux popup store at 120 West 42nd Street. Not in NYC? No problem. All frames are also available at https://priverevaux.com/.

In the pause: My book about Emerson Page is the perfect gift for readers who love mystery, adventure, and New York City

unnamedAnd so the holiday shopping season begins!

My book, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, is the perfect gift for people who love mystery, adventure, and New York City. It’s now available in paperback and ebook formats at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your favorite independent bookstores. It is appropriate for adult readers and for young readers who are 9 and older. (If the young people in your life have read Harry Potter books, this one will be just fine for them in terms of reading level and themes.)

Synopsis:
Thirteen-year-old Emerson Page wants to know what happened to her mother, Nora, a world-renowned anthropologist well-known for her research on ancient cultures and languages. Five years ago, Nora was found on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

“We’ve never seen anything like it,” said the NYPD. “It’s as if she just fell asleep on the steps of the museum and never woke up.” Eventually, the police gave up their search for answers. But Emerson didn’t.

Her journey to discover the answers about her mother’s mysterious death takes her deep below the streets of New York City on a dangerous adventure into a magical world of books. There, she learns the stunning truth about her mother and her own destiny to continue her mother’s legacy.
Time is running out. An alarming threat looms large and too close to home. With the very existence of human imagination at stake, can Emerson find the strength to fulfill her mother’s final wish before it’s too late?

READERS’ FAVORITE 5-STAR REVIEW – “A big, imaginative, and beautiful coming of age tale that begs for a sequel. Able to win my heart from the very beginning with a powerful hook. A fascinating story deftly told, a tale of courage and a gritty investigation. A radiant adventure that is captivating and mystifying. The young heroine is brilliant and inspiring, curious and bold, strong and vulnerable, loving and powerful. A story that will enthrall both young adult readers and adults with powerful themes seamlessly woven into its fabric. It is all go, all the way through. A masterpiece. This story pulled me in deep, and there was no letting go until the last page. I hope that this is the first of many.”

In the pause: I stopped by Megyn Kelly Today to chat about how shoppers can use the psychology of retail store design to save money

Thank you so much to Megyn Kelly Today for having me on the show! Happy to share the segment with former flight attendant Bobby Laurie, waiter and author Darron Cardosa. Check out the clip below:

In the pause: What to do about all of New York City’s empty storefronts

I’ve been obsessed with store windows since I moved to New York City in 1998. At one point, I tried to figure out how I could become one of the people who create the magical display windows in places like Bergorf Goodman. Honestly, I never figured it out, but I’ve continued to keep that dream in the back of my mind. Blame it on the movie Mannequin, which I watched about 1,000 times as a kid. Hollywood was my hero.

On my way home from dinner last night, I started counting the empty storefronts on Columbus Avenue. I got up to a dozen in as many blacks before I stopped counting. There are just too many empty spaces that are begging for inspiration, art, and manifested dreams. So I started jotting down the phone numbers on those empty storefront signs. Clearly until they’re rented, there must be something we can do to make those spaces useful, or at the very least give passersby something to think and smile about, something to keep them going during these challenging times. Stay tuned…I’m going to make something happen with them.
