AM Inbox: 'Add to calendar' CTA opportunities?

The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:

Ralph Lauren, 6/11 — Save The Date: The Legends Clinic LIVE With Boris Becker‏
Borrowing a page from B2B marketers’ playbook, Ralph Lauren includes an “Add to Calendar” call-to-action in this email to help remind interested subscribers about the “clinic” with Boris Becker. I wonder if this approach would also work with store events and even online and offline sales.

Walgreens, 6/11 — Walgreens Announces Exciting New Mobile Features & Apps for Your Phone‏
The organization may be a little confusing in this email and the section on the Blackberry and Android apps feels stapled onto the end, but Walgreens is the first major retailer to promote either a Blackberry or Android app in their emails.
