The Woodlands Madewell in the Mix at Market Street


The Woodlands Market Street, great things come in threes, where the women’s fashion boutique Madewell has opened, joining newcomers Elaine Turner and Calypso St. Barth in the shopping and entertainment destination’s elite boutique scene of more than 70 upscale retailers and restaurants.

Madewell is a collection of well-thought-out women’s clothes that speak for themselves. Each piece in the Madewell muse has just the right touch of glam, while taking a trendy approach on comfortably cool clothes mixed with modern attitude. It’s an edgy take on casual with a few vintage details and a modish twist. Great style, attention to detail clothes and affordable prices go a long way for those seeking a versatile “goes with everything” wardrobe.

Madewell hits the mark when it comes to jeans, priding themselves as jean makers first, who also know a thing or two about dresses, lush leather goods, super soft tees, fleece and an entire look book of versatile style. This jean junkie boutique is the perfect addition to Market Street, rounding out the retail scene with its own funky flare. Madewell is centrally located between Crú Wine and Food Bar and Sur la Table.

The Pavilion Ranks No. 2 in the World for Concert Ticket Sales

The Woodlands Pavilion
The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion ranked second in its listing of the top 100 amphitheaters in the world based on the number of tickets sold through the third quarter of the year, according to Pollstar magazine, the concert industry’s leading trade publication. The Pavilion’s ticket sales totaled 307,489 for shows played between January 1 and September 30, 2010.

“We have had an incredible year so far, including an extremely busy month in September. The quality and variety of shows we have presented has been fantastic,” said Pavilion President and CEO Jerry MacDonald. “I attribute the high ranking to a relatively strong Houston market and our booking partnership with Live Nation. The Pavilion is a great way to experience concerts and our location is one of the keys to our success.”

So far this season, The Pavilion has had six sold-out concerts including Buzzfest XXIV May 2, Jimmy Buffett May 20, Jack Johnson August 18, John Mayer September 5, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers September 24 and Rush September 25.

Upcoming concerts at The Pavilion include Maroon 5 October 22, Buzzfest XXV October 23 (already sold out) and Lady Antebellum November 6, as well as the 15th Annual Children’s Festival November 13 and 14. For more information, visit www.woodlandscenter.org.
