AM Inbox: Today's emails are brought to you by the color pink

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

Lands’ End, 4/27 — Last Day: Free Shipping, up to 40% off favorites.
Retailers don’t use many serialized emails, emails that tells a story over several emails. One recent example is that HPshopping did a series of emails featuring different characters from the Monsters vs. Aliens movie (see Mar. 31 AM Inbox). This Lands’ End email is part of a color-themed series where each email features summer apparel in a particular color. It’s an interesting approach to serialized emails.

Ralph Lauren, 4/27 — May 10: Celebrate Mom By Supporting In Style‏
Ralph Lauren gives their Mother’s Day promotion a charity angle by repurposing messaging from their Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign from last year. The charity element really stood out for me among the straight-forward Mother’s Day gift promotions that I’ve seen so far.

Norm Thompson, 4/27 — SAVE on all spring sweaters, 2 days only!
Norm Thompson is the latest major retailer to adopt a share-with-your-network (SWYN) link. Unlike most retailers, who generally put their SWYN links at the bottom of the emails, Norm Thompson has placed theirs at the top, right next to their forward-to-a-friend link. Explore the Share with Your Network (SWYN) tag.
