Punxsutawney Phil predicts longer winter.

Pennsylvania's famed groundhog emerged from his lair in front of thousands of fans around daybreak Sunday.

Legend has it that if the furry rodent sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another month-and-a-half. If he doesn't see it, spring will come early.

Just Arrived: Printemps from 3 Sisters!

Printemps from Moday by 3 Sisters.
There is no place the love more than Paris in springtime. Leisurely strolls along the Seine and into the many lovely gardens are the inspiration for Printemps. 

 Aptly named after the French word for spring and the sisters' favorite department store in Paris, Printemps is the creme' de la creme in a deliciously soft palette of delicate floral prints that appear as though they were fresh picked from Marie Antoinette's garden at Versailles.
