has been in plus size fashion for a long time. From what I have seen over the years they go through extremes when it comes to what they offer. Whatever the seasons look was there was not much of a emphasis on career wear.
New for the Spring season Lane Bryant offersin which they put together separates to make a nice looking work wardrobe. These sets can make dozens of different combinations giving you the feel of having a closet full of clothing with only a few core pieces.
If this is the direction that Lane Bryant is headed in 2008 it looks like it will be a smart move. In related news Charming Shoppes has released a statement regarding the store shooting earlier this month.
Lane Bryant has announced the establishment of The Lane Bryant Tinley Park Memorial Fund to honor the lives and memories of the five women who lost their lives on February 2, 2008 in Tinley Park. The Memorial Fund is being administered through Harris Bank, and is intended to provide financial assistance to the immediate families of the victims.
The Lane Bryant Tinley Park Memorial Fund honors the women who lost their lives in this tragic event:

- Carrie A. Chiuso of Frankfort, Illinois
- Rhoda McFarland, the store manager of the Tinley Park Lane Bryant store, of Joliet, Illinois
- Sarah T. Szafranski of Oak Forest, Illinois
