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.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Google is launching a live video chat service that connects people with personal trainers, contractors, music teachers and other experts who can teach them how to do stuff. Think Hangouts with an expert on the other end, say a yoga teacher or a math tutor. The idea is to get a helping hand when you need one, say if you want to learn to speak conversational French, remove a computer virus from your laptop, repair a hole in your wall or make Thanksgiving turkey stuffing.

The department store industry, coming off its worst year in three decades of market share decline, is mounting an all-out battle for the next generation of shoppers. After years of looking the other way as Forever 21, H&M, Zara and an ever-expanding array of online retailers captured the under-25 market, department stores are pouring money and effort into winning them back. The tactics range from convening online advisory panels of teenagers to establishing in-house, fast-fashion lines to setting up self-service cosmetic stands.

In a bid to lure young female customers, J.C. Penney Co. said it would open Sephora stores within its department stores starting this fall, under an agreement with the high-end cosmetics retailer. Sephora will open "store-within-stores" and be the exclusive seller of beauty products at J.C. Penney, which has been trying to erase its image as a dowdy middle-market department store operator with younger, more modern merchandise and marketing.

" Dawson wrote about advances in making foundations that more closely mimic the skin and she also mentioned the new Sephora + Pantone Color IQ system that uses a handheld device to scan the skin, assign a Pantone skin tone number and direct the customer to products that should be just right.
