Following a list of complaints on the feature, including two religious schools reportedly saying they would halt future purchases from the retailer, the company has now issued a statement on their Facebook page, apologizing for any offense caused.
"Some customers were troubled and concerned that we featured an interview with Gloria Steinem in a recent catalog," Lands' End said in the online statement.
"It was never our intention to raise a divisive political or religious issue, so when some of our customers saw the recent promotion that way, we heard them. We sincerely apologize for any offense."
"We greatly respect and appreciate the passion people have for our brand."
Steinem had been interviewed by the CEO of Lands' End, Federica Marchionni, with the interview being the starting point of the company's "Legend Series" which highlights people who "made a difference in both their respective industries and the world at large."
