Storefronting: Sephora, Amer. Apparel, Women He Loves

1) Upper West Side: As noted over at Eater, Zen Palate has moved onto a higher plane from its former location on Broadway between 76th and 77th, further emptying a block that recently saw the shuttering of the off-Broadway?yet on Broadway?Promenade Theatre. But a co-owner of the building told Variety that "there is indeed truth to the whispers that the venue will make way for a branch of the cosmetics chain Sephora." You know, for those who can't bear to walk three blocks farther south for their Laser in a Bottle. [Broadway World]

2) Morningside Heights: Dov Charney is cozying up to the CU set: "There's a new American Apparel store opening right in between the Commerce Bank and the Rite Aid on the southwest corner of 110th Street and Broadway.

3) West Village: Advertecture alert!

Among the more unlikely pairings? Katharine Jefferts Schori and Christina Aguilera. [Shophound]
