I have had the unmitigated pleasure of managing The Land of Nod Merchandising department for the past 9 months. I know, serious dream job. Honestly, not really work at all, more like a dream where you get to play with dolls, sit in piles of gorgeous linens, and travel the world creating anything you can dream up and trust me I can come up with some wacky stuff. So, unfortunately for me my dream job is coming to an end, (don’t feel bad – my new gig at The Land of Nod is pretty good).
So, why am I so excited? In the last 9 months we have been putting together the most exciting product collection I have ever seen, (obviously I am biased). There has been so much creativity here, that at times I thought we might burst with the excitement. And I’m excited, because the initial assortment is available right now! It’s bright and bold and has a great sense of humor. The assortment is amazing and it will just keep getting better over the next year.
Some of my favorite items:
Grey Low-Rise Crib. My children no longer sleep in a crib, but this one is so good looking it makes me want to have another.
Rapsberry Jenny Lind Bed. It’s been a personal dream of mine to “color” our Jenny Lind bed, you better believe it was the first thing I did!
Watermelon Stripe Bedding. This is the anti-thesis to Chicago in January (where I am) – delicious!
Head in the Clouds Pillow. A smiling cloud – who wouldn’t be happy!
Woodgrain Ceiling Lamp. I love all things woodgrain.
I hope you enjoy the new product, as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it. Stay tuned for more to come.

Aside from being the Managing Director of The Land of Nod, mother to four kids (yes I said FOUR!) and a gourmet cook, Michelle is a retail junky. From Zara to Marc Jacobs, Target to Nordstroms, she doesn’t discriminate, there’s room in her heart and closet for them all. And the addiction doesn’t stop at fashion, she’s painted her dining room at least 5 times, and changes rugs like most women change their sheets. Retail isn’t therapy for Michelle, it’s more like oxygen.
