Hello-Hello and happy almost-weekend to everyone! We are simply awash in the bright and beautiful day here in the Great Midwest!
We are all about apparel and accessories of a springy nature today, hopefully that is in keeping with your frame of mind! Earlier this week we mentioned the Shoshanna Trunk Show at Saks next Thursday; sadly, TP will not be popping in. We shall be trapped like a rat working spending our day lolling about the Palace. However, thanks to the good folks at Shoshanna, we’ll help everyone who can’t go feel like they were there. Sort of. In an abstract, far away manner of speaking.
As we did not (and are not) scooting out of town to a warmer spot this winter, just looking at clothing designed for warmer temps does our heart good.
Our thanks to Lindsey for the photos.
Remember our post about the next design collaboration Target is doing, this one with designer Tracy Feith? The always-on-top-of-things-Bust has shared some photos of the Collection, due in stores and online in mid-May.
The dress above is to retail at $29.99, the one below at$44.99.
The title for the post referenced the remarkable number of sales and clearances; the notion of sharing some with readers had merit, so we start with Brooks Brothers.
While certainly not what anyone would mistake for a “screaming deal,” at least not when contrasted with recent pricing, there are savings in every department. In honor of Nautical by Nature, we show the Country Club Canvas Sailboat Tote in navy dotted with nautical flags.
At $88, it may not represent what most would term a bargain, but if you purchase one tote, a second tote can be had at %50 off that price. For much better buys, click on over to the clearance section for some fabulous markdowns on shoes, boots, shirts and just about everything else.
Next on our hit parade, J. Crew, still offering a significant amount of merchandise in their Final Sale sections and on line. Additionally, select women’s shorts are 20% off, select women’s women’s swimwear is up to 25% off, and there is up to 30% off select women’s tees. Our favorite? The Clea Ballet Flat, now$49.99.
A cautionary note on these: we did not see a broad selection of sizes, so proceed accordingly.
Also offering substantial markdowns, Banana Republic.
