    Today's round of strong sale reports from major retailers may give firms the confidence to hold back on more promotional activity heading into the holiday season, according to AlixPartners. One promising trend is that shoppers stepped out to buy bolder, more fashion-oriented lines - instead of just replenishing the basics. With the retail table now set for a strong Q3 as the back-to-school season roars to a powerful start, optimism starts to creep up that consumers might even keep the good vibes going right through the crucial holiday period.

    It's only anecdotal evidence, but Tiburon Research Group's Leah Vermulen can't help but notice (Twitpic) that Coach's (COH -1.9%) factory stores are adding new signage to dramatically show markdowns from original prices. The company said in an earnings CC that increased promotions hurt profit at factory stores in Q2. Will Q3 be any better?

    Buckingham comes out with a defense of beat-up Coach (COH), saying the power of its brand and tendency to keep prices level should help see the luxury retailer bounce back. The take is a bit different than the rest of the Street that remains largely blown away by same-store sales growth in the U.S. that fell from +10% a year ago to only 1.7% - leading to the question of whether or not Coach has lost its catchet? COH +1.6% premarket.
