When my SA called today to my home, she talked with my DH who then immediately called me. I thought the Damier Neverfull was out but when I called my SA, she said it was the Palermo that had arrived in their store but was not available for release until November 1. I drove to the store to take a look at the two sizes (PM and GM). They were beautiful!!! My SA is holding the PM for me and it's $970 USD. I would say it's similar in size to the Cabas Piano but the base is deeper and can fit more stuff in it unlike the Cabas Piano (I had this purse but sold it because it couldn't fit all of my stuff). The Palermo has the strap handles but they are short - I don't think you can put the strap handles over your shoulder at all. It comes with a detachable and adjustable strap. (The best part for me!) And the zipper pull is cool - it's a small chain with a round LV pendant (think of a large size M&M with LV written on it). My SA kept saying that she loved the zipper pull and that it was like having a cute LV keychain already attached to the purse. Also, the hardware is the thicker rounded hardware than what you see on the Speedy. The base is mono but has the vachetta piping going all the way around the bottom of the base - so it can still get a bit dirty when you set the Palermo down. The inside is the brown lining like on the Piano and it had a cell phone pocket on one side plus another larger pocket and then I think there were one or two pockets on the opposite side of the inside of the purse. No inside zippers. And, there was an inside d-ring to hook your keys or mini pochettes to it. The Palermo PM that I saw was made in the USA. It also says Louis Vuitton embossed into the leather on the front of the purse. The pleats were nice, too!! The price of the Palermo GM is $1,190 USD. It was huge!!! It was a bit bigger than the Cabas Mezzo and the base of the GM is wide/deep (similar to the Hampstead base). It would be a great bag for traveling and could definately hold a laptop. I didn't really look at the inside but I'm assuming that it had the same exact features of the PM size. I also didn't notice if the strap handles could be put on the shoulder or not - sorry! My SA thinks the Mono Palermo will be even more popular than the Damier Trevi. I also showed her the pics of the Gray Inclusion bracelet in PM/GM and she love it! (I don't think she pays much attention to the look books.) She was surprised that the inclusions are silver instead of gold. She thought it looked great!!! I told her that the Inclusion items in gray were on the LV website, but she said she never looks at the website because she's too tired when she gets home from work! (I think tPFers are right when they say that the SAs don't always know about items to be released!!! - SAs are just not as crazy as us tPFers!!!!) Can't wait until November 1!!!
