Sifting Through The Sales

Blue down coat with hood from Lands' End. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

A Few Weekend Sale Picks

There are a bazillion sales on right now. Shopping sales can be a frustrating experience, as the good stuff often gets picked over pretty quickly. I tend to have better luck with “X % off ” promotions, where a wide range of items are discounted. Above, this nicely shaped down coat is included in the 50% off promotion at Lands’ End, with code GIFT, pin 7081.

Ann Taylor low-heeled leopard print pumps. Details and more sale picks at une femme d'un certain age.

Ann Taylor has a lot of cute shoes this season, including these leopard print pumps with a nice low heel. (I find a leopard print shoe will zhush up a simple outfit like nothing else.) They’re currently offering 40% off full-price styles.

red leather camera crossbody bag

J.Crew is offering 30% off full-price styles (40% off with $200+ purchase) with code HOLIDAYFUN. This camera bag was a good value at full price, even better with the discount. It’s still available in several colors too.

Travel leather tech envelope. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

This leather tech organizer is one of the niftiest travel gifts I’ve seen in a while, and some colors are currently marked down about 20%. You can have it monogrammed too! Free shipping with code MERRY for a limited time.

Bon weekend!

    Love your blog. Thanks for the info on these sales. Do they have sample sales in LA the way they do in NY? I don’t think I have ever seen you write about a sample sale. Here in NY I go to them frequently. The prices are much better than the store sales, 75%, 80%, even 90% off the price on the tag. For example, yesterday I was at the Tory Burch sample sale and got the Ella Quilted Tote, retailing for $275 for $95.

      Hi Karen, we don’t have as many sample sales here as they do in New York, but I think we’re starting to get more of them. I went to a Maje sample sale back in October, and came away with a very nice little jacket for $100.
