Gap Coupon

Hi Guys.  Sorry I haven’t posted much this week.  It’s been a bit busy. 

On Friday, I was interviewed concerning Fashion Sensei for the local paper, so I was unable to get my latest Fashion Lesson out.  I have every intention to get it out this Friday.

I do however, want to pass along a great coupon for the Gap that I received on Friday.

I ordered four pieces on the 21st and this coupon came in my inbox on Friday for an extra 20% off sale prices.  I called customer service to try and get a price adjustment, but they wouldn’t do it.  So, as it happens my Gap order arrived on Friday, so I went to the store, picked out all the same pieces and returned my online order.

I’m glad I did.  I ended up saving an extra $71.64 off the previous sale prices and a total of $128 and some change off the original retail prices.

Here’s what I bought minus another gray striped cardigan that is no longer available online, but is at the store.

Be sure to check out the store selection.  I discovered that the prices were even lower at the store than they were on line.

Happy Shopping!! 🙂

Kate Spade Private Sale

1privatesale_billboard_main

Are you a fan of Kate Spade products but not the high prices?  I just received notice this morning of a private sale that you may be interested in.

June brings a bevy of birthdays, graduations, weddings and baby showers and this sale may have a few cute items that will make your friends or family think you really went the extra mile.

These make up bags would make a nice gift to a girlfriend or a young woman going off to college.

Are you tired of buying lingere for your friend’s personal shower?  Why not get her something she could use for her honeymoon?  A shopper to carry all of her souviners, a stylish make up bag, or adorable sandals meant for a romantic stroll on the beach.

These baby bags will have the mother-to-be squealing with delight along with a brag book to show off her bundle of joy.  Don’t forget the journal (a steal at $10) so mom can record all her memories of pregnancy.

Payless Designer Shoes

For those who haven’t stopped into Payless in a while, it might be time to give them another try.  Payless has teamed with Alice + Olivia, Lela Rose and Abate to design shoes for the discount retailer.

Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet first hit the fashion scene in 2002 with what her friends dubbed her “Stacey pants”.  These pants went on to stardom at Barney’s NY and were coveted by stars such as Mena Suvari, Kate Hudson, and Paris and Nicky Hilton. 

Ms. Bendet whose has chosen to use her middle name instead of her birth moniker “Wiener” (I don’t blame her, it was just too funny a fact not to mention); is quoted in an article back in 2004 called  “Flash Pants” for New York Magazine, as saying what she really wanted to do was design shoes.

Enter Payless.  Alice + Oliva have designed shoes for Spring and Fall 2008.   I love these ‘Louisa’ ballet flats and they are now on sale for $24.99.  How can you beat that?!

These lime green ‘Aidan’ wedges are a little wild but very cute and on sale for $32.99

(Please note: my fashion prediction is that wedges are on their way out, so don’t invest too much money in a pair.)

Lela Rose who is a Parsons School of Design graduate, describes her work in this way:

“My philosophy of design is about creating beautiful, hand finished clothes that exude a casual luxury and refinement.”

She first teamed with Payless in September 2005 for her runway shows at New York Fashion Week.  Here are a few examples of her latest collection, which are all on sale; with prices ranging from $27.99 for the pumps to $14.99 for the sandals:

Abete designer, Laura Poretzky once worked for Ralph Lauren and then left to start her own line of sexy resort and swim wear under the label James.  James went on to be a runaway hit with the Hollywood and Hampton set.

She now has shown four collections with Abete and is the first to ever create a designer collection specifically for Payless, called Abete for Payless.  Here is a sample of her collection, all of which are on sale:
