AM Inbox: Sephora redesigns email with website relaunch

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

Sephora, 4/16 — The new Sephora.com...‏
Sephora has relaunched their website and redesigned their email template, mostly making small cosmetic changes such changing the navigation bar. With the redesign, Sephora has also added a link to their Pinterest page and promotes a Pinterest contest, making them one of the few retailers to do so. Here’s the new design (left) and the previous design from an Apr. 4 email:

Toys “R” Us, 4/16 — Monday Mega Sale! Up to 25% Off NERF, Beyblade & More - Online Only!
In this email, Toys “R” Us looks to engage subscribers with some social-triggered deals while generating new “Likes,” which provide more demographic and marketing data.

The landing page (below) doesn’t say, but I assume that Toys “R” Us will leverage the results back into their email and social media messaging. Toys “R” Us can also use individual’s vote to run a segmented campaign promoting the item they selected and similar items.

Ralph Lauren, 4/16 — Celebrate Mother's Day With The Perfect Gift
In this email, Ralph Lauren beautifully captures the indifference of mothers toward their children. It’s a wonderful image, but probably not the best one to promote Mother’s Day gift-giving.
