Anthro Day weekend is here again…

This post contains affiliate links. Please read this blog’s disclosure post for more info.

I didn’t plan for this to be such an Anthropologie-heavy week on the blog, but here we are as they’ve launched an Anthro Day promo weekend featuring 20% off full-price items and the last day of Free Shipping, no minimum. No code required for either promo; the discount will reflect at checkout.

But how to navigate the exhaustion of searching through all the weird stuff that Anthro is carrying right now? I’ve rounded up some picks that are sure to delight.

I think I’ve figured it out. Anthropologie is allergic to their own good stuff. Take the uninspired styling of the very very good Geneva Anorak ($148 + 20% off, above). Washed out photo? Lame dress underneath? You are killing yourselves Anthropologie! In truth the jacket is much darker and much prettier than it looks here. (See the jacket styled quite cutely in this post.)

The jackets section is where you’ll find some classics, like the Faravel Moto Jacket ($148 + 20% off, on me 1 | 2 | 3) or the Tamsyn Jacket ($138 + 20% off) and some of their trendier takes like the Renley Handkerchief Jacket ($128 + 20% off) and the Souza Embroidered Jacket ($178) work.

In the dress section, I’ve dug through and come up with some good options — so many of the cute dresses are online only! Which makes this promo a prime time to try them. I’m ordering the Ursa Velvet Wrap Dress ($345 + 20% off — this brand runs small on curves, I usually take a 14 instead of a 8 or 10) for sure, and the Striped Poplin Dress ($158 + 20% off) too. I can only hope they are both as pretty in real life as they look on the screen.

If you don’t own the Carissima Sheath ($258 + 15% off) yet now’s a great time to get it at a discount! The Ynez Tunic Dress ($148 + 20% off) seems to be a hit, and I’m rather enamored of the Lady Jane Silk Dress ($598 + 20% off) which gets a huge markdown at 20% off as well as the Allison Embroidered Tunic Dress ($148 + 20% off).

If you’ve been thinking about the Pearl Embellished Floral Cardigan ($178 + 20% off), the promo discount gets you much closer to $128, the price Field Flower used to go for. I’m excited to try it! I also highly recommend the Draped Off-The-Shoulder Pullover ($98 + 20% off), a winner so far for me.

What will you put your Anthro Day weekend discount towards? More of my picks in the boutique below.

      Thanks for the great post Roxy!! There are definitely some things I am going to order and try. Fingers crossed 🙂

    Thanks for the heads up! I was tempted to order some things, but my cart keeps emptying itself out and I don't have the energy to fight with it. Of course nothing I want is available in stores. Sigh.

    • Maggie

      This kept happening to me yesterday and I wrote to Anthro for the millionth time explaining that I cannot buy anything if my cart keeps emptying or, like yesterday, I can only put one item in, then it empties when I put the next item in. PLUS I have to sign into my account every single time I go to the website and even during a session I have to sign in again and again. Must be a message to me to wander over to FP where these problems do not exist!

      • Simone
        August 25, 2017 / 4:21 pm

        YES! That's exactly how it goes for me, too. You can only add one thing and once you navigate away, the cart is empty. Same with the login. Navigate away from the landing page after logging in and you're out again.

        I remember reading about this here weeks ago. I can't believe they haven't fixed this. The shopping cart is kind of a critical feature when you want people to… you know… shop.

        I guess I don't need these sneakers and jacket that badly, because I'm too lazy to try if it'll work on my phone.

    Thanks for this post, Roxy. The Geneva is all sold out in my size, and I didn't add it because of the online color (I forgot about your styling post).

    Would you say the undertones of the Geneva Anorak are warmer/muddier or cooler? The photo looks like a warm khaki green, but your picture looks much cooler.

    Otherwise I've emptied my own cart because at this point I really need to love and need an item (or not need it, but really really really love it and be able to incorporate it into my existing wardrobe). The shoes I'm still waffling on even with free shipping.

    I ordered some Elysess shoes for fun..and also the Florentina midi, AG sateen black ankle jeans, Ruffle sleeve gingham top by SeenKeptWorn, Jays Cape jacket by Cartonnier, and High low V neck pullover in the green color. We shall see what actually works!

  5. Lisa
    August 25, 2017 / 1:54 pm

    I ordered the Kira Long Kimono jacket and the Pintucked Lace Tunic. Hope they work out! Love the overlapping promos.

    I ordered the Bailey 44 Corps de Ballet dress to try.

    What is wrong with Anthro's website?
    It's exhausting trying to place an order when I have to keep signing in. Several things have sold out I would have liked to purchase if I could actually add them to my cart and check out = /

    I do love the Allison Embroidered tunic dress, Trimmed Peasant dress, Aiza Lace dress, and the Faravel Moto jacket in the charcoal grey and camo colorways…

    I miss the days when it was fun to shop at Anthro!

      If you are using a laptop, try rebooting, and/or deleting cookies, running disk cleanup. That seemed to settle things down for me.

        August 25, 2017 / 7:35 pm

        Thanks, I'm on a desktop computer but I will try that! =)

    I love the ursa velvet wrap dress but my size (8 I think – I generally am a 6 or 8) is sold out. Pooh. If it really does fit small, maybe I can go for a 10.

    • Kathy
      August 25, 2017 / 8:15 pm

      Shari, that dress is available in 5 or 6 department an internet stores. You can get an 8 and a price match!

      • Shari
        August 26, 2017 / 8:08 am

        Thank you!

        • Shari
          August 26, 2017 / 8:10 am

          And I am getting 25% off with a bloomies card. I am not sure if the 8 will bit or if I will need a 10 but will try with the 25% off.

            I ordered both – they have free shipping both ways so now I will have one that will fit. Anthro 20% off good, Bloomies 25% off better. Just wish the stuart weitzman booties were included!

    Thank you, Roxy, for the heads up! I agree that most of Anthro’s stuff right now is uninspired and “weird,” but I decided to give the Rosie Neira Wool Buttoned Military Jacket a try: (feel free to change the link, Roxy!).

    On another note, thank you for letting us know about designer denim on Amazon Fashion. I bought two pairs of Paige jeans for under $40 each–the Verdugo and the Bell Canyon High Rise Flare–and they fit perfectly! I’m new to high-end denim, and I now understand why they’re in such high demand; the fit is amazing!

    • Shari
      August 26, 2017 / 8:08 am

      Paige jeans and shorts are my favorites. For me the fit is the best and they are just so comfortable.

    • August 26, 2017 / 11:04 am

      I'm so delighted to hear it! For anyone wanting to shop, here's a link to Amazon's designer denim under $40 page:

    I am in search of the Herschel lemon backpack, it is a child's size, I think it was online only, so I am hoping for a return in a store. Thank you so much!!!!!

    Just got my September catalog in the mail and I think it's better than I've seen in a while. The clothes are still mostly goddawful but the layout and the vibe are like old Anthro catalogs. Shoes are fabulous, though.

    Looks like the fall furniture catalog will be out in the next week or so, can't wait! I'm definitely buying some more furniture before the end of the year. Roxy, do you think they will have a 20% off furniture special anytime soon?

    Got the green velvet flats. At $68 + 20% off and free shipping, it was a pretty good deal.

    I live in Houston TX. Might sound crazy coz we have hurricane Harvey here? But I ordered Sam Edelman Clover heels in color Pink. Looks so pretty and I wanted a lovely pair of shoes in pink.

    Need lots of prayers for safety of my family and me. Hope Harvey passes fast. Thanks

        So sorry all of this has been happening to everyone over in good old Texas, Nam for some reason I always thought you lived in New Mexico and had no idea you were over in Houston! Do you live on a small hill or anything like that? Say safe my friend!

        • Nam
          August 28, 2017 / 12:08 pm

          Hi Jess!!! Thanks a lot.

          Hill? Nope Texas is the most flat land anyone can think of. Houston is among the most populous and super flat.

          We are in no flood zone and one of the safest place seeing what's happening here.
          Need lots of prayers ❤️Thanks for being so sweet and caring.

          • Jess
            August 28, 2017 / 12:27 pm

            That's good to know Nam, we had a major storm here in the South Bay when it was raining like crazy after our long drought and unfortunately dozens of houses were flooded out not too far from where we live, it was so sad and terrible but nothing like what's happening in Texas. I've never been to Texas, only Arizona and Hawaii. I used to live in Arizona when I was a kid and spent a few Summers there later in Flagstaff where the mountains are. I used to love the snow there and sometimes still miss it:) I know Texas will pull through, from what I hear Texans are tough!

          Oh and just so you know Nam, I was just at the store yesterday and bought the Marbella Velvet top in the navy and it's fantastic! I think you'll want to add that one to your wishlist:)

          • Jess
            August 28, 2017 / 2:44 pm

            Of course I realize you have waaay more important things going on right now but I wanted to point out that top for you for later when you're more in the clear and in the mood for something new. Best wishes!

    A little off topic, but I miss the days of popbacks. There are a bunch of things I've missed getting in the past and check sometimes hoping it will come back even though I know it's useless. Haha.

    • Anthropolitan
      August 27, 2017 / 10:12 am

      I know. I still check. Silly and pointless, but I still do.

      At some point I'm just going to delete those few items and keep my search to poshmark and ebay.

    • Michelle
      August 27, 2017 / 5:07 pm

      Oh man, checking wishlists for popbacks was so exciting! I've scored some amazing deals, like $6 tops and $30 jeans. Such good times 🙁

    I stocked up on candles!! Great Christmas gifts! I'm also taking a chance on the Callista embroidered top in black, edgewise chambray tunic, outfield neck tee and the petite ruffle wave earrings.

    • August 27, 2017 / 9:32 pm

      Good idea on the candles!

        August 28, 2017 / 11:54 am

        I just bought the best new pumpkin candle from Capri Blue and it's gorgeous when it's all lit up! I couldn't wait for the Autumn candles to start appearing because they are simply the best!
