JCPenney, the quintessential American department store, has enlisted Charlotte Ronson to inject its staid racks with a dose of downtown New York cool. Ronson, 31, sister of music producer Mark and DJ Samantha (her twin), has been designing clothes for nearly a decade, beginning with her 2000 C. Ronson collection, which introduced her trademark "tushies" (a lingerie-inspired romper), wedge heels and iPod "hoodie" scratch protectors.

On Friday morning, some very happy snow globe fans will return to J.C. Penney stores for a Black Friday tradition that was briefly wiped out last year. Call it the Black Friday Snow Globe Debacle of 2012. J.C. Penney dropped its post-Thanksgiving snow-globe giveaway last year, and a small but determined rebellion took root. It turns out the Disney globes were an entrenched holiday tradition with some customers. Leah New of Memphis was one of them. She and her mom had a mother-daughter tradition of shopping at J.C. Penney every Black Friday and picking up a snow globe.

JCPenney is hopping on the European fast-fashion autostrada by teaming up with Mango to put MNG by Mango shops in select Penney stores and online starting Wednesday. Based in Barcelona, Spain, Mango has more than 1,300 stores in 94 countries but only 12 in the United States, including locations at Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade and Costa Mesa's South Coast Plaza. The new deal extends that reach to 77 JCPenney stores, with plans to expand to 600 in the next year. Initially, 13 Penneys in the Los Angeles area — including Glendale Galleria, Fox Hills Mall in Culver City and Del Amo in Torrance — will have MNG by Mango shops.

This fall, fashion is a bit schizophrenic. On one hand, you have "Mad Men" beauties in retro full skirts, tight sweaters and kitten heels. On the other hand, you have "Mad Max" beasties in cargo pants, shaggy fur vests, animal prints and tough-looking boots. Getting the ladylike look can be expensive. ( Authentic Louis Vuitton crocodile bow pumps alone will set you back more than $1,000.) But the military-inspired "Mad Max" look, with its arsenal of affordable trends, is made for the mall, where what's in stores now has never looked better.

When 14-year-old Bethany Mota gets back from the mall, she eagerly models her latest finds for friends and family. And for tens of thousands more on YouTube. The rising high school sophomore from Los Banos, Calif., is a "hauler," a term for tech-savvy young fashionistas who show off their purchases, or hauls, in homemade videos that they post online. Bethany started hauling about a year ago and now has more than 48,000 YouTube subscribers who tune in to watch her show off her favorite back-to-school outfits ("you don't want to wear heels and stuff, obviously")

General Electric Co is recalling about 244,000 wall ovens under the GE, GE Profile, Monogram and Kenmore brands because of a fire and burn hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said. Some of the ovens may have their door attached incorrectly, allowing enough heat to escape during the self-cleaning cycle to pose a danger, the CPSC said. The ovens were sold at home building and appliance stores between October 2002 and December 2004. Information: (888) 569-1588, www.geappliances.

I teach sixth grade in Los Angeles. About once a month we have a "non-uniform day," which the students love. We had one last week, and there was no Laker gear, but for the first time, plenty of Clipper jerseys. Don't worry, Laker fans, you can stock up at JCPenney. Last time I looked, Laker T-shirts had been reduced to $7.99. ROBERT LADUE Los Angeles As many NBA players and fans are getting ready to honor our favorites in the All-Star game, we Laker fans prepare to honor Kwame Brown.

Was it fate that brought the thief directly to her that day? Hubris? Malice, perhaps? It was impossible to know. Yet there was Michelle McCambridge, a 23-year-old JCPenney salesclerk, looking at the woman who not long before had stolen thousands of dollars worth of jewelry, video game consoles and other merchandise by claiming to be Michelle McCambridge. As their eyes locked, McCambridge felt herself go numb, a mix of adrenaline and anger. The woman in front of her stood impassively.

The first break-in took place in September 2006, when gold was selling for about $587 an ounce. The thieves lay low until last December before striking again, perhaps enticed by the price of gold hovering around $800 an ounce. As the price of the precious metal continued to zoom to more than $1,000 an ounce, the thieves' activity increased until they had stolen about $2.5 million worth of gold jewelry from 11 JCPenney stores throughout California.

Tony Adams Jr. was a shoe manufacturer with a problem. His family-owned business, Cypress Footwear Inc., was getting kicked around in the highly competitive footwear market. It expanded from sandals into walking shoes a few years ago and that helped a bit, but the family still found it tough to go head-to-head against foreign competitors. He needed a new line.
