Ads will run in the October issues of key fashion publications. The scarf will be sold exclusively in all Burberry stores in the United States, all Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In a similar endeavor in the United Kingdom, Burberry will be selling the scarf in their London flagship with 30% of retail sales donated to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
