Intricate Alligators... Corre Departs Agent Provocateur

Lacoste’s new holiday collector’s series of polos will hit stores on Nov. 1.

FINALLY IN RETAIL: Microsoft’s first retail outlet will open in Scottsdale Fashion Square later this fall. The software giant’s long-awaited brick-and-mortar store will open in the Nordstrom wing of Macerich’s Phoenix-area shopping center, which also houses retailers like Burberry, Hugo Boss, St. John, Tiffany & Co., Juicy and Pottery Barn. The store will carry items like laptops, games and gaming devices and software, and early plans called for a huge video display wall and interactive areas to customize computers; the company brought on former Wal-Mart veteran David Porter early this year as vice president of retail stores to oversee the rollout.

The firm signed a second retail lease for the Shops at Mission Viejo, a Simon property in Orange County, Calif. The second store is slated to open later this year, with additional doors to come in 2010.
