A few years ago, we were working on a section called "Fabulous Finds" for our sister publication Memphis magazine. One day, a PR lady called to tell us about a new fragrance that was sure to set our readers' hearts all aflutter.
We listened to her spiel and, with an eye toward our looming deadlines and the difficulty of finding six truly "fab" things a month, asked her where we could get this wonderful scent.
"Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdale's, Saks," she replied.
"You know you're calling Memphis, right?"
She paused a moment and said, "It will also be available at Sephora."
"We don't have a Sephora, either," we told her, sadly.
"YOU DON'T HAVE A SEPHORA?!?" she screeched and we heard a clunk, possibly her falling off her chair.
Sephora has finally arrived in Memphis, at the Wolfchase Galleria. We'll never feel ugly again.
