Anthropologie has done some major sale cuts this morning as it prepares to kick off it’s semi-annual Tag Sale! Right now there is no extra % off sale but I’m told we can expect up to an extra 30% off sale as soon as tomorrow.
I think at this point I’ve made my qualms with Anthro clear so I won’t go into them again here and take away from the sale hunting fun! In truth, I haven’t even walked into an Anthro store for over a month now…which is like shopping heresy for me. This might be just the enticement I need to go and see where they stand now.
A few recent updates at Anthro:
— All Anthro members now get free shipping on orders of $150+ all the time. If you’re not an Anthro member (it’s free!), sign up here.
— Anthropologie reached out to me to say despite what multiple community members here experienced and this post, they have not updated their returns policy. Which is great news — as long as you have your receipt you should still be able to make a return for an unlimited time! Unfortunately they have not gotten back to me regarding my question of what shoppers should do if they are denied a return as many of us have been, so I’ve been holding back the update post waiting for that info. I’m also curious about whether they are deleting records older than 6 months which would be a handy way of not changing their policy but still getting the effect they might want. There are still lots of open questions on this one.
Anyway, let’s sale! Here are some of the sale items that look interesting to me…
This photo looks a bit like a propaganda poster to me, as though it’s saying “I want YOU to join polka dot nation!” And I might just have to do that with the Pocket V-Neck Tunic Top (now $30) above. According to the online reviews this top runs large and has big arm holes, neither of which bother me much for a day at the beach or on the Coney Island Boardwalk. The top comes in 4 solid colors and 2 patterns. I’d think this top would go great with the Relaxed Chino Shorts (now $30), a long-time Anthro favorite of mine that they have not messed with (thank goodness). The shorts can be rolled up to a shorter length or left unrolled for longer length and are generally super comfy. They come in a range of pretty colors and run true to size. They also have a cute design on the waistband! If you prefer your shorts unrolled there is a shorter inseam version with no cuffing potential.
Another freshly cut top I’m interested in taking a look at is the Sleeveless Linen Swing Top (now $40), which comes in 4 colors including a stunning dark green called ‘dark tourqouise’. I only wish this top wasn’t quite so cropped! I’d pair that top with the Slim Chino Pants (now $50), though I have to note that these have some pretty iffy reviews regarding quality. If those pants aren’t tempting, I also think the Pilcro Stet Mid-Rise Jacquard Skinny Jeans (now $50) and the Petaled Pants (now $50) both look so cool!
If you’re looking for a more classic top, consider the Pintucked Sleeveless Blouse (now $40), which runs large. This top is a great length and comes in a few classic colors and fun prints. Perfect summer work shirt for casual offices! To protect it through the wash, spray it with this along the frayed edges and wash it inside out in cold water on the gentle cycle.
With Summer finally here, there are a bunch of new sale items that look perfect for vacation or days off from work. I’m particularly thinking of the cute Abstract Geo Blouse (now $40, above) when I say this, a top that looks perfect for Saturdays with nothing to do but plenty of fun places to go! The Nadiya Caftan (now $50) also looks intriguing to me as a beach cover up if for no other reason than loving its beautiful lemon color.
I also quite like the Washed Denim Pocket Tank Top (now $50), especially its split back! I won’t be buying this top because I have a very similar one from last year but it’s well worth checking out if you are looking for a lightweight everyday top.
In terms of dresses, Anthro has already conceded it messed up by not having enough this Spring so I won’t belabor the point…it’s a sad day when my wishlist isn’t chock full of Anthro frocks! There are a few in sale, like the Cody Yarn-Dyed Swing Dress (now $130, above), Palisades Embroidered Midi Dress (now $100) and Isa Midi Dress (now $100) that look interesting to me. I’m also delighted that the 5-star-rated Elisabeth Dress (now $300) made it to sale. There are way too many dresses like the Emmeline One-Shoulder Gingham Tunic Dress (now $100) that look cute but have no shape whatsoever. No way Anthro. I’m not doing that. For all you petites out there, the Petite Leah Dress (now $100) looks super-cute! I might have to try it myself.
Truth be told, I wish Anthropologie would take some of its beautiful apron patterns like the Nadia Apron (now $20) and make it into a dress! That’s where all the fun prints and beautiful fit-and-flatter shapes seem to be hiding. ?
You will find some cute skirt options new to sale today like the Dionna Ruffle Skirt (now $100) and the Zebra-Printed Skirt (now $150). Both are pretty, fun and should be emulated into other categories! I can’t wait to try them on.
There were also fresh cuts in home today, where delights like the Moussem Ceramic Stool (now $100) await. Furniture is typically excluded from any extra percent off sale promotions so for the best selection you might want to look now! I’m a little sad to see there wasn’t more jewelry cut today; we’ll see what the next few weeks bring.
Below, my picks for the Tag Sale. What are yours?
