Weekend deals & steals worth cheering about

Normally I try to keep a very level head during store promotions. No, there is no clothing that I need at this point. It’s all about wants and balancing my endless desires with the discipline to stay on-budget and not get sucked in by a sale that’s all too good for me to stay level-headed.

Today, however. Oh, today! It might be one of those days when I throw caution to the wind because: 1 | it’s my birthday month and 2 | there are a bunch of damn fine promotions happening this weekend. So Free People, how you doin’? 😉😋😍😎

Free People started a tempting habit a few months ago of offering 50% off select items for Friday only. This weekend is no exception. Sometimes the items offered are great and sometimes they’re meh or not tempting at all. Today’s 50% off Flash Sale at Free People? It’s exquisite. It’s making me overuse italics!!

The items included today are delightful and I’m having trouble whittling down my shopping cart! A Hanukkah gift card is helping somewhat. Among the highlights for me are the Laguna Thermal (now $34), which I take a medium in and love to layer (the grey under the white usually), the Lofty V-Neck Sweater (now $64) which is oversized yet oh so warm and cozy, gorgeous coats like the Structured Puff Sleeve Blazer (now $74) or the Cinched Waist Linen Blazer (now $49, ahhh that green!!) or the Oversized Denim Moto Jacket (now $84). And that’s before I mention drool-worthy shoes like the Peaks Point Wedge (now $69) or the Wild Fields Western Boots (now $99). Or the cardigans!

Maybe it’s just best if you check out all my picks below and adore them yourself! (NOTE: prices below are before the 50% off discount, which applies at checkout. No code required.)

 

The next great deal is happening at my precious — err, Madewell. Right now you can take 20% off your purchase of $100+ or 30% off your $200+ purchase. Madewell seems highly motivated to grab some of your Christmas gift card money or Winter blahs spending money! I’m feeling inspired by their latest edition of Looks We Love, which features items like the Reconstructed Jean Jacket ($148 + up to 30% off) and the Reconstructed Midi Jean Skirt ($98 + up to 30% off) in three different stylish outfits. Many other new items caught my eye like the Drawstring Peasant Dress in Kaleidoscope Print ($158 + up to 30% off, also in a peasant shirt) and the Button-Back Tie Tee in Buffalo Check ($62 + up to 30% off). You’ll find Madewell classics included in the promo like the wear-with-anything Surplus Jacket ($118 + up to 30% off).

If you don’t mind all the exclusions of this promo — cashmere, denim pants, leather items to name a few — it’s a great deal on both full price and sale goodies. Use the code STAYCOZY. (Also, when did bodysuits become a thing again? I’m having serious flashbacks to 1993 and it does not feel good.)

My picks? You got ’em, just below.

 

 

Madewell seems to know exactly the items I want in my closet! 
Shop this look in the mini-gallery just above this photo, up to 30% off.

 

Another fantastic promo is happening at LOFT, where right now you can take 40% off full price styles with the code FRESH and an extra 50% off sale styles (no code required)! You know what I really love picking up at LOFT? Pants and jeans. They offer curve-friendly cuts and they are great about interpreting trends for less money yet the same quality. For instance, the Modern Fresh Cut Skinny Jeans in Ombre Side Stripe ($80 + 40% off) are a great take on a luxury jean trend that often retails for over $200. In my opinion, the LOFT version fits so much better! Another LOFT pant I wouldn’t want to live without are their cords, which come in a modern cut, a curvy cut, and even a legging (that are so velvety soft, like fine wale corduroy).

LOFT has tons of great stuff right now. It was hard to cut it down to my 40 favorites for this 40% off promo. Here they are:

 

 

 

LOFT makes casual dressing easy! Shop this entire look in the mini-galleries above.

Also this weekend, it might just be the final weekend of Anthropologie’s Tag Sale and extra 40% off sale; they are also doing a home offer right now detailed in this post. Sundance’s extra 40% off outlet special is also still running as of this morning!

What promotions will you be shopping this weekend?

    Roxy – Have you tried Amour Vert? I love the catalog shots but get hesitant when I can't go into the store to try things on. Thanks!

      I'm with you Fancy Catsup! I get their catalogues but I've never placed an order with them. Community, have you?

        A resounding yes!

        Excellent company, easy returns – I bought multiple sizes for the first few orders, but their sizing information is really accurate. Great basics; made in the USA of organic materials for way less that the polyester made in China throw away objects most big name shops are offering at a higher cost.

        Embrace sustainable fashion! It doesn't suck anymore!

    LOL "my precious" .

    Those bed Stu boots are TDF, and a great price with the 50% off, but I have already been gorging on boots this post-holiday season and need to not buy. Wish FP would do another 25 or 40% off sale – I have quite a load of sale loaded in my cart!!!

    FP has 40% off sale in store as of today.

      Online too – wheeeeeeeeee!

      I gotta make that request more often. 😉

    I got the laguna thermal in black. Hoping the arms aren’t super tight. I wanted the green but it was sold out at the time and now of course it’s back in stock in every color.

      If it hasn't shipped yet maybe call CS and see if they can swap the green for the black?

      Most of my order has shipped – yay!

        I think I’ll like the black the more I think about it. Still waiting for it to ship 😬. And the poncho I ordered on 1/9 from Anthro still has not shipped. Meanwhile I bought it at a store-who, when I called the previous day, couldn’t find it. 😬😬.
        Whole new bevy of markdowns this morning at Anthro. I ordered the Farm Rio Aviary dress but have zero confidence I’ll actually get it.

    I bought the Antuanette Velvet Bolero in tigerlily and the Long Printed Vest in the black combo (I have this in the rust and love it). The Long Printed Vest was the last in stock so hoping that it ships.

      Ooh – I almost got that velvet bolero, but had to drop some things from my cart. Let me know how you like it!

    Will do. I ordered the medium because the reviews said the fit was snug in the shoulders. I normally take an x-small or small so hoping that it fits. It is always a bit of a crap shoot for me when I order online.

    I ordered a bunch of stuff in the flash sale on Friday (some of which has already shipped, yay!) so I'm sitting out the extra 40% off FP sale.

    That said, here's what I own and love that's on sale and in-stock as of this writing:
    || The Serena Wedge is very comfy, and keeps popping back into stock. Great for vacation or next Spring/Summer.
    || The Liv Shirt Dress is SO under-rated, and unexpectedly beautiful. I found my usual size medium to fit great.
    || I have the Velvet Sky Pullover in the copper color, which is a very dark red in real life. It's gorgeous and looks great with a long pencil or denim skirt. It's short for sure — too short to wear with anything except high-waisted bottoms.

    And in my cart right now…
    || Although it's huge, a big part of me wants the playful Heartbreaker Mini Dress!
    || I think the Gidget Sweater Dress is just adorable! I can't decide between the two colors.
