Dress Deals (& STEALS)!

Holiday weekends are always known for having amazing deals.  Nordstrom Rack and Saks off 5th offered 25% off already-reduced clearance items. Talbots offered 70% off of already-reduced clearance items.  Ann Taylor offered 50% off already-reduced clearance items.  Lord&Taylor had 75% off all winter coats, dresses, sleepwear and more (and if you were lucky enough like me, they also mailed out a $30 bonus card – that could be used like a gift card on ANY purchase!).
I could go on and on…. Let me show you some of my favorite finds of the weekend:

Starting off, this Coral Monique Lhuillier chiffon gown retailed at $990.  It was marked all the away down to $149.99… take the extra 25% off of that: $112.49! That’s over 88% off!

Next on the list, Oscar De La Renta.  This classic day dress was originally marked $1,990.  The clearance tag marked it way down to $319.97!  After the 25% off, this dress came to $239.98: 88% off!

Third, a St. John exclusive for Saks – the best spotted deal.  This dress was originally sold for $995, and marked way, WAY down to $89.97.  With the extra discount, the price was knocked all the way down to $67.48.  93% off!

Deals didn’t end at the malls and outlets.  Marshalls and TJ Maxx have racks upon racks of clearance merchandise.  Be patients as you sift through, and keep your eyes open because there are certainly deals hiding among the masses of items.

Adidas Deals!

I had an amazing weekend! My husband and I ventured through the snowy weather to a most relaxing Bed & Breakfast (and tea parlor) in Dover, New Hampshire.  Dover is incredibly peaceful, Victorian homes line the snow covered streets and the downtown area is full of small family-owned shops. Dover is also great because it’s close to Portsmouth, Kittery and Ogunquit.  Despite the cold temperatures, we took a short detour to Kittery and ran in and out of a few stores.  First up: Adidas.

Now, I’m not normally a fan of sneakers.  I would literally be barefoot 24/7 if I could.  But, since it’s impossible to wear flip flops between October and April in New England, we have no other option but to cover our feet.  I was browsing the clearance section and came across these slip-on “sneakers”.  No laces? Awesome! Extremely comfortable. More awesome! And how about the fact that they came in both black and navy, so they’ll pretty much match all of my leggings and athleisure wear.

So, let me get to the GOOD part.  The entire store was buy one item, get one 50% off.  Both pairs were marked down to $19.99.  When all was said and done, my total including tax came to $31.58 – and I was also given a coupon for a future purchase!  Curiosity got hold of me, and I began to peel away the layers and layers of orange stickers, until I discovered the original price of each pair was $89.00. Total savings of over 83% off!!

Stay tuned for more deals from my trip! ‘Till then, stay warm!

(UPDATE: 2/20/2017: I wore the black and green pair to the grocery store today and received two compliments! They are incredibly comfortable – I even still have them on my feet!)
