Maria Sharapova bails on Cole Haan

On Sep 2, I received an email from Cole Haan touting their Fashion's Night Out event: watching the mens quarterfinals in their tennised-out Madison Ave store. The headline stated that Maria Sharapova would be popping in to help shill the line of accessories she had a hand in... inspiring? designing? something.

However, come Sep 8, I receive a new announcement hyping up their astroturfed floor and mysteriously omitting the guest appearance. Guess she didn't anticipate having no other reason to stay in town other than smile and wave. The good news is, you can snack on Dylan's Candy Bar yummies while ogling Nadal.
