Your favorites (& mine) on sale

Can’t believe it’s the July 4th weekend already! I hope you have some fun things planned. If your summer wardrobe still has some gaps or could use an update or two, here are a few things you can save on now during the July 4th sales…

Summer-ready styles

Susan B. wears a summer outfit with lightweight chino trousers and a Breton stripe tee.

This weekend, Talbot’s has 40% off your entire purchase, including these relaxed chinos, which I’ve been wearing quite a bit this week. They’re offered in Misses, Petite, Plus, and Plus Petite sizes. (This tan color seems to have limited size availability now, but several other colors are still available in most sizes.)

Madewell closed-toe fisherman sandals.

Madewell has 40% off shorts, tees, and swim styles, and 25% off almost everything else. (Code: SUNSHINE) These cute & comfortable fisherman sandals are included in the 25% off promotion.

Summer wardrobe basics: Susan B. wears a green long cardigan, striped linen tee, relaxed fit Mother jeans, leopard sandals.

Vince also has a sale going on…this elbow-sleeve linen tee is 30% off. Plus size too. And you can save an extra 40% off their “vault” styles with code VAULT40. (Here’s the cardigan, not yet marked down.)

J.Crew linen tees: crew neck striped, v-neck in pink.

J.Crew is having a monster sale, but also has promotions on some full-priced items like these linen tees (Crewneck / V-neck) with code GOFOURTH. The linen tank is also included in the promotion. All styles are offered in multiple colors.

Susan B wears Tory Burch gold fisherman sandals.

Tory Burch is having a semi-annual sale, and currently you can save an additional 25% off sale items, including these snazzy (and comfy) gold fisherman sandals! (Suggest going down 1/2 size from your usual closed-toe shoe size.)

Exclusive savings just for you!

  1. Susan — how fragrant are the skincare products from Brian? My husband has migraines and even fragrance -free products can have an odor that is triggering. This is why I almost never buy products online. Thank you! Have followed/loved yr site for years.

  2. Thank you (and Brian + MW) for the coupon code. I’m excited to try the skincare products–especially the Re-Creation Lip Contour, which you’ve praised for many years. And happy 4th to you! I hope you have a lovely weekend.

  3. Interested in lip treatment for fine lines but wonder how many uses are in this .5 oz pump. Applying 3-4 time daily how long does it last and do you see immediate results?

    1. One bottle lasts me 3-4 months. You only need a very small amount each time, just a pin-head size is enough. I first started using this when we were skiing in Colorado (where it is VERY dry and my lips usually take a beating) and noticed that my lips didn’t crack or flake at all. My lips were visibly smoother after just a few days of use.
