NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lucky, the magazine about shopping and style, and Adspace Networks, owners of the largest in-mall digital television network in the country, have partnered to create unique editorial content for mall shoppers on the network's Smart Screens.
Aptly branded "Smart and Lucky," these features star Lori Bergamotto, Style Contributor for Lucky.
