It’s not easy to get it all right, especially for full-figure variants that have to provide enough lift and also be comfortable. New bra types have a success rate of 50 percent, Walters said, so the company’s being careful not to introduce too many too fast. It has started by stocking more colors and fashionable styles in bigger sizes in its lingerie label Ambrielle and launching Boutique +, a line for heavier millennial shoppers.
Nonetheless, investors’ enthusiasm began to wane this summer on signs that rivals are strengthening, and the shares have plummeted 30 percent since June 5. J.C. Penney Co. is expanding its partnership with the upscale Sephora line, a major competitor of Ulta, while Macy’s Inc. is opening more Bluemercury shops.
Estee Lauder Cos. said “there is no truth” to rumors that it’s in talks for a potential sale or merger. “The Estee Lauder Companies is not for sale,” Executive Chairman William Lauder and Chief Executive Offer Fabrizio Freda said to employees Sunday in an internal memo, which was obtained by Bloomberg News. The family and the board place “great value in remaining independent,” the New York-based company said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
