Victoria's
Secret
PINK
bus
visits
E.L.

2009



Steak
and
sweatpants
were
at
the
same
location
Wednesday
as
Victoria’s
Secret

brought
a
PINK
bus
full
of
goodies
to
Harrison
Roadhouse,
720
Michigan
Ave.



PINK,
a
brand
of
Victoria’s
Secret
clothing
that
focuses
on
T‐shirts
and
hoodies
as

well
as
underwear
and
other
accessories,
camped
out
in
the
parking
lot
of
the

restaurant
from
10
a.m
to
5
p.m.
to
provide
women
with
piles
of
PINK
apparel,

including
the
PINK
collegiate
line
of
MSU
clothing.



Because
of
the
cold
and
rainy
weather,
the
sale
was
moved
into
the
foyer
of

Harrison
Roadhouse,
where
hundreds
of
girls
streamed
in
and
out
all
day
to
take

part
in
the
promotion.



Some
items
sold
from
the
Pepto
Bismol‐pink
bus
were
items
not
yet
available
in

stores,
said
Jillian
Thomas,
child
development
junior
and
an
employee
at
Meridian

Mall’s
Victoria’s
Secret
location.



National
representatives
called
the
mall,
Thomas
said,
and
asked
employees
if

they’d
like
to
come
out
and
work
the
sale.



Two
or
three
employees
worked
a
counter
in
the
foyer
of
the
restaurant
while
a
few

more
were
out
on
the
floor
of
the
event,
arranging
clothing
and
talking
to
students

about
the
sale.
An
actual
PINK
bus
was
parked
on
Michigan
Avenue
to
show

passersby
and
drivers
that
the
sale
was
happening.



Thomas
said
students
were
lined
up
as
early
as
9:45
a.m.



“We
had
a
stack
of
MSU
stuff
that
sold
like
crazy,”
she
said.
“Most
of
it
was
gone
by

noon.”



The
sale
was
part
of
a
“holiday
preview”
of
clothing
that
has
just
been
released
to

stores
or
will
not
be
released
until
October
or
November,
Thomas
said.
The
focus
on

the
clothing
sale
was
the
promotion
of
the
PINK
fall
and
winter
line,
which
has
a

series
of
warmer
clothing
including
sweatpants
and
sweatshirts.



Last
year,
the
PINK
bus
came
to
the
University
of
Michigan’s
campus,
but
sales
at

MSU’s
location
are
expected
to
be
higher
than
at
U‐M
or
other
schools,
said
supply

chain
management
junior
Ali
Evasic,
a
campus
representative
for
PINK.



There
was
promotional
material
all
over
campus
for
the
sale,
Evasic
said.



“We
had
a
Facebook
invite,
and
also
had
a
street
team
handing
out
fliers
in
the

dorms
and
the
Union,”
she
said.



The
MSU
apparel
line
came
to
PINK
after
students
voted
on
Victoria’s
Secret
Web

site
for
schools
they’d
like
to
see
featured
in
the
collegiate
line,
Evasic
said.



Evasic
said
the
MSU
line
sells
quickly
in
stores,
potentially
leading
to
the
large

turnout
of
shoppers
at
the
PINK
bus.



Advertising
senior
Lauren
Boyle,
who
heard
about
the
event
through
Facebook,
was

disappointed
to
see
that
most
of
the
MSU
apparel
was
sold
out
by
the
time
she
came

to
the
event
after
class,
at
about
3
p.m.



“I
wish
they
still
had
more
MSU
stuff
because
they
never
have
it
in
stores,”
she
said.



One
of
the
reasons
Boyle
came
out
to
the
event
was
for
a
special
occasion.



“It’s
my
birthday,
so
I
felt
like
treating
myself,”
she
said.



Lindsy
Bacigalupo,
a
communication
and
public
relations
junior
and
campus

representative
for
PINK,
said
she
made
time
between
classes
to
be
at
the
event

nearly
all
day.



“I
had
an
exam
in
the
middle
of
all
this
madness,”
she
said.
“But
it’s
been
great.”
