The Preppish Bargains Continue

Hello everyone, may your day be going better than TP’s! (We’re merely having a Monday on a Wednesday, so to speak.)

We want to alert you to a number of Sales and Savings opportunities currently available, starting with the Hayden-Harnett sale. Significant markdowns have been taken on many items in all categories, including their Toulouse Weekender now at $244; the original price was $348.

Brooks Brothers is promoting their continued Clearance, with prices reductions of 50% to 70% according to their mailer.

We are somewhat tempted by the Wool Chalkstripe Coat, very handy for a winter here in The Great Midwest.  The coat’s original selling price was $798, it is now $239.


Saks has started their Sale, with a good assortment available across most categories and lines, including many preppish brands. The Tory Burch Mercedes Coat is now $417, discounted from $695.

And from the Lilly Pulitzer Jubilee Collection, Saks offers the Cotton Sateen Fitch Shift.

This one is so luscious we’ll make it today’s Pretty in Pink. The dress retailed at $348; it is now selling at $209.  Not *quite* meriting PIP status but fun nonetheless: Lacoste’s Bold Stripe Cotton Sweater with 3/4 sleeves.

Lacoste continues to carry a significant amount of merchandise that is on sale or discounted in some way at their online store.

Now for an entirely different looking Lacoste tee, how about this avant-garde version?


A collaboration between Lacoste and the design minds at Andrea Crews, the shirt will be available in July. We simply had to share the tee because of that delightful touch of whimsy in the design, almost mocking the brand’s heritage. (For those wondering if it might trigger a case of Logophobia, goodness, no, no, no, not at all. That can’t happen when the design clearly isn’t intended to be taken seriously.)

With that happy tee as our last image, we say G’bye until next time!

    That Lacoste tee is cute but not half as funny as the Christian Francis Roth “Accost” polo that you had here:

    I am so totally in love with that Cotton Sateen Fitch Shift it’s not funny. If I thought it would ship here by next Thursday I would order it in a heartbeat as I am desperately in need of something fabulous for a family member’s wedding in Toronto next weekend. It’s stunning – and what a great price!!! I have shoes to match :)

    And the bag is beautiful, I would carry that all weekend AND all week it’s so stylish!!!

    p.s. SO loving the totes, even hubby is thrilled with them and how much stuff we can stick in them as we’re on the go!!

    Sorry for your icky Monday on a Wednesday-day! At least tomorrow is Thursday, which is pretty much a slope right on into the weekend! I love the weekender tote, and that Lacoste shirt? Too cute. I think Mr. Steak & Cakes would look quite dapper in it, myself.

    J’adore the crazy golf-playing alligator. Cuteness and irony all in one tee.

    I’ve been pining after that TB coat & dress combo for months. Were it not for These Difficult Times, I’d snap them up on sale in a second.

    Of course the golf-playing alligator is just too wonderful. Love it.
