Stay warm, cozy and shop these sales from your couch!

If you’re like me, stuck inside today due to tiny snow bullets flying through the wind and slapping against your face on morning dog walkies (which even my snow-loving pup hated!) then Anthropologie and Madewell have an idea for you: shop their sales, now an extra 40% off!

Let’s begin at Anthropologie where there are lots of fresh cuts this morning and free shipping too with the code TOASTY1xY3. There are popbacks too, like the Lace-Trimmed Velvet Kimono (now $50 + 40% off) topping the post, and items that make even the models wonder what Anthropologie was thinking, like the Sequined Shell (now $70 + 40% off) or the even more hilariously posed Intarsia Spotted Cardigan (now $90 + 40% off).

A few more of my favorites in the markdowns include:
1. Two colors of the Thoma Clutch & Tote Bag (now $50 + 40% off), a bag that continues to delight me with its versatility each day!
2. The very cute Well-Worded Tassel Pouch (now $30 + 40% off), one of the few times I approve of words on things.
3. The floral-embellished Embroidered & Striped Blouse (now $80 + 40% off), a very cute blouse with a better fit than most of Anthro’s items give right now.

Madewell has also increased its sale offerings to an extra 40% off sale, plus new markdowns today. You’ll find these mixed in with Anthropologie sale items in the shoppable boutique below. Happy Sale Hunting all!

    Anyone having problems with delivery of their post-Christmas shopping? I now have 2 packages MIA – one FP and one Anthro, both sent Lasership. They were supposed to be delivered the 29th, got rescheduled for the 2nd, were loaded onto the truck that day and seemed to have disappeared.

    Then I've got 2 other packages that were supposed to be delivered Wed. and Friday, but both got bumped to today. They are also both shown as "loaded onto truck", but as I doubt anyone is delivering in this storm today (and I certainly hope that they are not – no one should be on the road unless it's a necessity), I'm wondering when/'if these will show up either.

    I really do not want to order any more until these packages actually get delivered – (and of course everything in question has sold out).

    Hope everyone affected by the store stays safe and with power!!!

      Wow – the Fedex package arrived. Those poor drivers having to be out in the snow. 🙁

      So I just called both Anthro and FP about the missing packages. Anthro refunded me right away, but Free People said I have to wait 10 days before the package is truly considered missing and I can be refunded for it. Kinda bummed, as every item I've ordered is now sold out. Has anyone every had missing Lasership packages show up? (I know, not likely with Lasership, right?)

      • January 5, 2018 / 12:56 pm

        Lasersuck is the WORST. I'm so glad Amazon stopped using them. I had one Lasersuck package that showed up a few days after it was 'lost' — open but with my stuff still inside thank goodness. One package out of over 15 lost though.

        • Anthropolitan
          January 5, 2018 / 1:34 pm

          One out of FIFTEEN?????? How on EARTH do they stay in business??????

          I'm hoping against hope that the packages show up.

          • January 5, 2018 / 1:38 pm

            Yeah it's ridiculous. I had pretty much stopped ordering from Anthropologie online because of it, or if I did I paid for express delivery (which then felt worse when I got an item that was damaged or the fit was of). Luckily Lasersuck does not seem to cover the area of Brooklyn where I live now, but in Harlem it was BAD.

            I had thought they were doing better. The drivers used to show up at 10pm (or later) in these beat-up cars and throw the packages at my house like newspapers- half the time I'd have gone to bed and the package would be sitting on my stoop all night. The ones in my area now have nice white vans, like Amazon, and the packages were coming much earlier in the day. And they hadn't lost anything in a good long while. I was hoping they had finally turned into a legitimate business. I guess not. 🙁

            This vest was the one thing in my order I really wanted. Hoping it pops back:

            Try the KOP PA store. They have TONS of stuff that is sold out online. Including my Munro dress ?

        I had one lost last year and it never showed up. Sorry:(

    I ordered the Leather Aviator Bomber from Madewell. I've had my eye on their washed leather motorcycle jacket forever, but living in a warm climate with limited chances to wear a leather jacket, I can't justify spending full price. The aviator bomber was good deal, so hopefully it works out!

    • January 5, 2018 / 12:57 pm

      It's such a beautiful jacket Kelly! I hope you love it when it arrives. All the buckles on the side are so cool!

    Did the free ship code TOASTY1xY3 worked for anyone?

    • Amelia
      January 4, 2018 / 7:37 pm

      Not really.. I entered the code and it says “free standard shipping” but it didn’t actually take the shipping cost off..???

      Worked for me on two different orders for free standard shipping.

    I ordered the Munro dress and Glistened Wide legs. I'll either love em or hate em! I also scored a popback of the Cecelia Prado Winter Lodge Poncho Pullover but I dont have a lot of faith that it will ship. I am done shopping. I'm shopped out.
    Didnt try that free shipping code because I had everything ship to a store.

    So I just got a cancellation notice for my Munro dress…. the one thing I really wanted! I’m po’Ed! I ordered it at 7:30 am EST the day it went on sale. So annoyed. Think it’s worth it to have my store do a search for it?
    And Anthro is shady now…. the title of my email was “ details about your order”…. so they changed it from the old “ cancellation notice”.

    • Anthropolitan
      January 5, 2018 / 11:28 am

      Stefanie, I would call around. It's such a great dress!

      • Stefanie
        January 5, 2018 / 11:41 am

        I did-found it at KOP and they are holding it.
        But here’s the thing-why did I have to do the work that Anthro should have done?

        • January 5, 2018 / 12:57 pm

          Glad you found it, but boo cancellation!

        • Anthropolitan
          January 5, 2018 / 1:35 pm

          I know – you should have not have had to hunt it down.

          But glad you found the dress – enjoy!

    I actually tried Dierdre Velvet Column Dress at the store. It's very flattering for curves and super comfy too. Thick fabric hides lumps and bumps and underwear lines. I didn't purchase since it's a bit too special occasion for me and I'm trying to only buy clothes that I can wear to work.

    • January 5, 2018 / 12:58 pm

      I agree Tanda, I like how the dress looked on too! I would wear it to work although you're right that it would be pretty fancy for my casually-attired coworkers.

    January 5, 2018 / 11:50 am

    and even funnier is that it’s available online again in my size…. not even an hour after I received the cancellation notice.

      Tanda, it looks to be the April Crocheted Dress. Not too bad of a price point.

      • Tanda
        January 5, 2018 / 1:55 pm

        yes, unfortunately it is the dress. I'll have to pass on this one. My imagination painted a different dress/skirt. One with a gentle A-line shaped skirt and defined waist and if it's a dress it would have a modest(-ish) v-neck.

    Happy New Year, everyone 🙂
    I am looking for a sale dress..and can't seem to find the picture of it or know who makes it..but thought I'd ask in case it sounds familiar. I saw it on an SA the other day and she was wearing it as a jacket over a plain black dress. The dress in question is a beautiful shade of green..maybe more jewel tone..slight sheen..most likely midi length. There is a tie at the waist..built into it. That's all Ive got, sadly. I wasn't from too long ago. Do this sound familiar? I vaguely remember the picture of it online..but I hunted through sale and don't see it.

        January 11, 2018 / 2:08 pm

        Thanks! 🙂 I think it might be! I didn't see how long it was because she was behind the counter. I'm off to scope out more pics of it.

    Not sure if people know, but anthro has 50% off select stores. I got my PAs there 🙂

    • Tiffany
      January 7, 2018 / 1:51 pm

      How do you know which stores?

      • Chewy
        January 7, 2018 / 3:09 pm

        I just called and asked! I got my PAs right away. I’m lucky i live near a few stores. In NYC i know UES has 50% off. I’m willing to bet any of the stores with a large inventory will have this promo

        • klj1
          January 9, 2018 / 10:10 am

          Portland is 50%!

    Is anyone else waiting a long time for their PA's? I have even made second requests and still nothing.

    • Stefanie
      January 7, 2018 / 1:07 pm

      Yes. I emailed three times and called once for two separate PAs. Was told after o called that I’d see them within 24/48 hours. Finally received one in a not-proofread email a few days later and I’m still waiting for the other.
      Just bad customer service. Bad!
      And I received a cancellation notice for the Cecelia Prado poncho four days after I ordered it. Second cancellation in one week.
      What has happened to Anthro?!?!

    • Denise_S
      January 7, 2018 / 1:12 pm

      I am still waiting for a PA requested via email on 12/29. Granted, that was the Friday before the New Year's holidays. I requested a second PA on 1/3 and nothing there yet either. Have you checked your credit card/form of payment? Sometimes when they are slammed with requests as they are no doubt now, they do not reply with an email, but the credit will just show up on your card.

      • Stefanie
        January 7, 2018 / 1:31 pm

        Mine were both paypal and paypal and paypal sends an email when a refund has been deposited into my account.rhe one I’m waiting for I requested on 12/25!!!!!! Still waiting after 3 emails and a call.
        Personally I think they are hoping we will forget

    My Lasership packages both showed up today!!!!!! I'm so glad, because I really love the vest.

    Does anyone happen to know if there is a store which has 50% off sale prices where you can also get a PA over the phone? I know that is probably a long shot at this point.
