A Few Good Basics On Sale

Eileen Fisher silk cashmere v-neck sweater in "river" (azure blue). One of the wardrobe basics on sale. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

The current sales are full of seasonal and trendy pieces. It can be tough to come by good wardrobe basics on sale, especially this time of year. But I’ve spied a few sale items in this week that are good multi-season basics. Thought I’d share…

Above, I purchased this sweater in the Dark Pearl color a few weeks ago and was quite impressed with it. The fabric is incredibly soft. I’ve worn it several times with no pilling. It’s warm but lightweight and would be a good travel wardrobe piece. Misses / Petites (Now that it’s marked down, I’m really tempted to order that River color shown above…)

Eileen Fisher v-neck jersey tee white. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

A simple jersey tee with long sleeves is another travel-friendly piece. This one is offered in both black and white, and is 55% off.

Caslon scoop neck striped tee in plus. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I consider striped tees a wardrobe staple. This one in Plus has a nice scooped neckline too!

J.Crew Cameron pant in four season stretch, navy. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

These flattering pants in a four-season stretch fabric are offered in several colors, and up to size 24. They’re 25% off with code STEPITUP.

J.Crew Sophie sweater blazer in navy. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

This sweater blazer is one of my favorites, and is included in the 25% off promotion. It’s a three-season piece here in Southern California. Offered up to size 3X.

  1. Hi Susan,
    I don’t see that the Cole Haan sneakers are 30% off. Is the sale over? Thanks .

  2. I have to thank you again for spotlighting plus sized options !

    I bought that leopard scarf as a treat for myself the first time you featured it and I love it!

  3. Hello Susan! Thanks for the tips. Eyeing the EF sweater and wondering what size you purchased? It says “relaxed fit” and I go between sizes on EF items.

    1. Hi Nicole, I think it runs TTS for EF. I purchased the Petite Small and am pleased with the fit. It’s relaxed but not oversized.

  4. I really like Longchamps products. I’ve found that some of the best sales on their pieces are found in Longchamps’ airport stories, especially at DFW. Don’t laugh! Good things are where you find them. 🙂

    1. Ann in Missouri,
      I agree, but thought only in Europe. Glad to hear our larger airports might be a good source too.
