Ulta Beauty apologizes for ‘Come hang with Kate Spade’ promotion
Ulta Beauty apologized Monday after sending out a promotional email about a perfume product discount.
On Sunday, the company invited email subscribers to “come hang with Kate Spade” followed by heart emojis.
The email had information about Kate Spade’s perfume “Sparkle”.
Spade, a fashion designer and the founder of the “kate spade” brand, died by suicide in 2018 at age 55.
In an email we recently sent featuring the kate spade new york brand of fragrances, a very insensitive choice of words was
used and for that we are very sorry,” the emailed apology began.
We have the utmost respect for the kate spade brand and the joy it brings to the beauty and fashion industries.
At Ulta Beauty, our teams are human, and this was truly an error with no intent to do harm.
