AM Inbox: Harry & David's giftlist service

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

Harry & David — A message about your Harry and David account ...
In the wake of a recent purchase from Harry & David, I got this email about their new My Giftlist service, which keeps track of my gift purchases (who got them, what they got, when they got them) to make reordering easier. That’s a nice convenience. Unfortunately, the data pull to personalize my email appears to have failed.

Urban Outfitters, 6/8 — New Right Now‏
Subtle? No. Fun and eye-catching? Yes. More importantly, it’s on-brand for Urban Outfitters. If Blue Nile, Nordstrom or Williams-Sonoma sent this email it would seem really bizarre.
