As you can imagine, I am on just about every store/brand email list. It drives me crazy, but is of course a necessary evil as I pride myself on being on top of what it is happening in the ever changing shopping landscape. Sure, I always share with my clients, but I thought given our economic climate, I would help some of my favorite little stores spread the wealth.
I wrote about Suite Orchard on the LES (remember the store with the adorable Frenchie) a while back. They have great merchandise and now are offering an amazing sale/deal. Everything in the store is 50%-75% off and on top of it, they will give you $25 towards your next purchase for EVERY $250 you spend. The $25 gift offer is only good through the end of January.
Another one of my newish favs, is the Iisli store at 25 Bond Street. This is one of those fairly ubiquitous BG-Neimans-Saks brands that I think suffers after being cherry picked by department store buyers. They tend to make it look a little "older", so when I discovered their new store a few months ago, I was blown away. The collection is not only youthful, but the some of the individual pieces are to-die. If aren't familiar with the brand, it is primarily knitwear and they design some of the most wearable, yet inspired dresses, skirts and tops. The current Fall sale is "silly" good!!!! Dresses and jackets are $100, skirts and pants are $65, cardigans are $75, tees are $45 and their gorgeous sequined pieces are $150. These prices are at a fraction of normal retail. The sale ends tomorrow ladies, so RUN! You will be so happy you did.
If online shopping is more your thing then my favorite site LaGarconne.com is having one hell of a sale. Let me tell you, I have been shopping on LaGarconne for a long time and I have never seen them go as low as 60%-70% off... Some of my favorite brands, like Heimstone, Mischen and Future Classics and Zucca are in this "low" bracket and although sizing is limited, I promise this could be your one and only chance to scoop up some of these amazing finds at such discounts... Unheard of!!!!
Of course, I am going to add a little shameless self-promotion and continue to remind you about my Wonderland Fashion Flea Market this Sunday. I have yet to release any info about the participants, so I am going to do a little sneak-peak just for my loyal readers... Perhaps you will find some great deals on the likes of Jason Wu (yes, Michelle Obama's Jason Wu), Derek Lam, Doo Ri, Alexander McQueen, Haute Hippie (the clothes are so fab), Valentino, YSL, Gucci, Bottega. You may also score some new brands like Alex Elliot handbags (her skin clutches are must-haves) and Hooch Bags by The Elegant Thrifter (so cool, you just have to see them) for obscene prices. Now not everything is going to be "low" as the event is not intended to be a discount event. Just know that we are quite cognizant of the climate and will behave accordingly!!!
These are limited time offers so brave the cold, the economy and continue to indulge in your fashion obsession... Remember we all have to keep shopping in order to fuel our stagnant economy. With deals like these, you can do so and still not deplete whatever disposable income you happen to have. And, of course if you don't have any money to spare, this is why God created the credit card!!!! Happy Shopping...
