Merry Christmas! A Mini-Sale Roundup…

nordstrom half-yearly saleI’ll try to do a full sales roundup later today (naptime, cough cough), but a few quick notes right now:

  • The Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale has started! They seem to be having a lot of tech troubles (the home page has been spinning for me for about 10 minutes now), but it’s on — save up to 50% through January 3. Some quick notes on what to look for: deep discounts on Classiques Entier (the pictured dress is down to $136, available in red and black, tons of sizes left), Hugo Boss, reader favorites like the Halogen suits and skirts and Pleione blouses. Deep discounts on shoes and bags, too — AGL flats are 35-40% off, tons of Stuart Weitzman up to 50% off, and my goodness a TON of boots. On the weekend side, tons of good deals on Zella leggings and major discounts on denim like AG, JAG, J.Brand, and more.
  • ruana Brooks Brothers is having their semi-annual sale with an additional 15% off online orders today and tomorrow.  The cashmere ruana, normally $500, is marked to $249 today in all colors still available — not bad, especially considering the extra $37 that comes off at checkout (the 15%).
  • Ann Taylor is offering (through Friday night) an extra 60% off select styles and all sale styles with code WINTER60.  Sister site Loft is 50% off sitewide with code Holiday50.

  • Finally: The Saks sale the day after Christmas is usually pretty killer as well!

Deal Alert: The Sale is on Sale at Nordstrom!

sale-on-sale-at-nordstromNordstrom is doing another day of “extra savings” (although allegedly this time it’s through 11/30) — the sales are great!  Be warned, though, when they did this last week (the first time I’ve ever seen them do this!), stuff sold out — I had a number of things sell out before I could check out last week. Sad trombone! (My solution tonight: first I shopped for my son and checked out, then went back and shopped for myself and checked out… then decided to do a sales roundup about it.)  Some of the nicer things I’m seeing:

  1. BCBG Generation Pinni Pump, was $79 now $38, lots of colors and sizes left
  2. Corso Como ‘Penny’ Pointy Toe Pump, was $128 now $48
  3. Sam Edelman ‘Linda’ Half d’Orsay Pump, was $109 now $55, 2 colors left
  4. Ivanka Trump ‘Sophia’ Pump, was $109 now $59, 10+ colors on sale
  5. not pictured: COACH ‘Rileigh’ Wedge Pump, was $195 now $87, 3 colors on sale
  6. (at top): SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker ‘Diana’ Pump, was $365 now $165 – 18 positive reviews, 3 colors left
  7. TONS of Stuart Weitzman (up to 62% off) and AGL flats (up to 55% off)… no “extra” savings on Ferragamo but tons of shoes marked 40% off.
