Hello everyone, and happy new week!
The Princess must publicly thank La Bellette Rouge for providing us with a much-needed boost on a dull and dreary Monday morning: her Blog Love Award!
Miss LBR is an extraordinary writer and we are ever-so-thankful for her recognition!
We move to updates on additional methods for acquiring necessities (or luxuries, however one deems them) without taking out a second mortgage on the summer home. (Translated: more sales.)
Banana Republic is now offering 40% markdowns on both their Men’s and Women’s merchandise. In menswear the basics abound: outerwear, sweaters, denim, etc., but they are so staid we can’t bring ourselves to showcase them. Instead we share something perilously close to not quite meeting TP’s stringent standards of decorum. Yet desperate times require deperate measures; therefore we give you the Men’s Taxi cab Boxers in blue.
Much more fun while also qualifying for today’s Argyle Update (although not yet on sale), the Cashmere Argyle Socks.
Also offering markdowns (and really, who isn’t right now?), Lacoste, including the Libby Ballet Flat as well as the Women’s Espa 2.
LL Bean has a good number of items marked down from their original prices, including the Infants Fleece Coverall.
TP is especially fond of the little ears on the hood. In fact, TP is craving a little fleece jumpsuit all her own to snuggle into and snooze away the day. Sounds reasonable to us… how about you?
Does this not look delish and divine? We can only wish we were somewhere in the northeast; it is Nantucket bay scallops time!
We didn’t think it possible to make this melt-in-your-mouth fabulosity sound, well, boring, but it seems The Journal may have accomplished just that feat in this article on the topic. On the upside, they do include a source for ordering the delicacy to be shipped wherever one desires, within reason. A caveat: the article mentions trying these these sushi-style (sounds so much better than ‘raw,’ don’t you think?), TP has no intent of ever doing so as they are too wonderful cooked. Tender doesn’t begin to describe them. Sigh.
A quick reminder: to win all of these excellent preppy goodies…
..from Boatman Geller…
And Me Too…
And the Preppy Princess….
Including one of our favorite books, Summer at Tiffany…
… treasures valued at more than $125, leave a comment telling us one friend you are grateful for. That’s it! For more information on the Great Giveaway, just click here! Here are a few of the comments left thus far…
The always astute Miss Daisy at Legally Blonde Ambition says:
“Oooh. I’m thankful for my internet friend Katie at Overflowing Brain for listening to me rant & rave. Whew.”
Elaine R writes:
“I am thankful for having my friend Linda in my life. We have stayed friends through growing up then marriages,children and sickness-my love for her is unconditional.”
And from someone who actually makes tech fun and understandable (how’s that for a combo?) here is part of the comment left by Miss Techyness:
“I am most thankful for my support network. This is not just one person- but a collection of people, experiences and feelings.
It’s being thankful for that person who asks if you want a cup of coffee with a smile when you’re having a crappy day at work.
It’s when your mom sends you a text message and signs it “love mom” even though you have explained to her that you already know it’s from her.
So, what I’m thankful for are all of these people and the things they do that keep me sane “
We close with a Pretty in Pink offering from the Land of Nod, the Color Block Rug in an almost preppy pink and green color scheme, although this is a tad pastel to qualify.
With that, we say goodbye until next time!
