The LOFT festive promo and other promotions to shop this weekend :: Effortlessly with Roxy
Shop: this sweater, 50% off this weekend!

Each day I see the pre-Christmas promotions and I think to myself: It can’t get any better than this. And pretty much every day a new and better promo comes along that wows me! So while I won’t declare that this weekend’s promos are the best promos we’re going to see, I have to think we’re close.

For example, this weekend the LOFT festive promo offers 60% off dresses, tops and jewelry and 50% off everything else. Can it possibly get better than 60% off non-sale items?!? I really don’t know anymore. My jaw is already on the floor at this discount.

Nevermind that LOFT’s latest collection is so, so lovely. I hold LOFT to a different standard of materials and quality than say, a Saks Fifth Avenue, but within the parameters of a mid-level retailer they’re doing very well. You’ll find more acrylic and polyester here than I’d normally want in my closet. That said, several clothing and print designer friends of mine who used to work at Anthropologie now work at LOFT and I love supporting them by buying the clothing! My friends get such a kick out of it when we meet up and I’m in one of their designs.

So, what’s good at LOFT right now? Take your pick from plenty of pretty items. If you’re done gift shopping and strictly back to shopping for yourself I always recommend looking at LOFT’s excellent Wear to Work section (and I hope to get a dedicated post up for that soon!).

I have several winners in my closet from there including the Winterweave Turtleneck Sweater (now $40, above, TTS), the Flare Sleeve Sweater (now $30, I sized up for length), the Tweed Flippy Dress (now $36, TTS and definitely more of a mini than a knee-length) and the Shoulder Button Flare Dress (now $24, TTS).

There are items you’ve seen on me too like the Covered Button Down Strappy Cami  (now $20, on me here and here), the Leggings in Faux Leather (now $35, on me here and here) and my favorite necklace of the moment, the Double Layer Stone Pendant Necklace (now $17 and on me, oh I don’t know, here, here, here and here to name a few looks!). Yes, I am truly loving LOFT right now!

Shop: this dress, 60% off this weekend

Many sections are 60% off among the LOFT festive promo, like dresses! This is probably the least overwhelming part of LOFT’s site because there are ‘only’ 87 items, as opposed to other sections with over 300.

In dresses you’ll find delights like the Swiss Dot Skirt Dress (now $36, above). This dress is so curve-friendly! I’ve come across it at conferences and I’m so glad I didn’t wear it today because during my company’s Board meeting one of our Directors was in it! The Wrap Dress (now $36) is another so profesh dress that can easily make the transition to after-work events or date night.

On the more casual side dresses like the Button Cuff Cowl Neck Sweater Dress (now $36) and the Leopard Sweater Dress (now $36) bring cuteness to a whole new level. I’m currently admiring the Striped Signaturesoft Boatneck Dress (now $20) which would make weekend dressing a breeze.

Skirts are not part of the LOFT festive promo 60% off deal (they are 50% off) but this seems like a natural place to mention them. A few of my coworkers are often outfit twins in the Faux Suede Shift Skirt (now $35) and it looks cute on all of them! I personally plan to buy the Wooly Pocket Shift Skirt (now $35) and the Faux Leather Zip Pocket Pencil Skirt (now $40) during this promo. I already own and highly recommend the super-sale Plaid Ruffle Skirt (now $15). Note that I went up two sizes in this skirt so I can wear it down on my hips, which is makes it almost knee-length on me! Without doing that, it’d be a nearly inappropriate mini.

Shop: this top

There are a few items on LOFT’s site that make me stop my scroll every time, so clearly I need them! The Scalloped Strappy Cami (now $23, above) is a great example of this, as is the Faux Leather Zip Pocket Pencil Skirt (now $40) shown with it. The Pocket Open Cardigan (now $24) completes the above outfit. More sweater goodness is available in the shoppable boutique at the very end of this post.

All tops are 60% off during the LOFT festive promo. Beyond cute camis you’ll find plenty of fun details like swiss dots, textured dots, polka dots…all kinds of dots! There’s also pretty lace details on blouses and camis; tons of pretty velvet options and elevated basics too.

Jewelry is also 60% off during the LOFT festive promo and it deserves its own section because it’s lovely! I get so many compliments on my LOFT costume jewelry; often people think it’s designer. Pieces like the Pave Stone Pendant Necklace (now $12, above) has a delicate sensibility that add polish to any outfit. And as mentioned at the top of the post I wear my Double Layer Stone Pendant Necklace (now $17) all the time!

I don’t pretend like LOFT’s jewelry is on the level of, say, a Tiffany’s, but it is better quality than I’ve found at similar retailers. I’ve experienced no issues with tarnish or patina with LOFT’s jewelry. Mostly, it’s classic and appealing. Even when they do attempt trendier pieces like the Pave Fringe Drop Earrings (now $12) or the Marbleized Pull Through Hoop Earrings (now $12) the end result is good.

During this promo I plan to pick up the Gem Cluster Resin Drop Earrings (now $12), the Fabric Wrapped Drop Statement Earrings (now $14) and the Tortoiseshell Print Link Necklace (now $18).

That’s already a lot of promotional goodness but I’m here to tell you there’s a lot going on this weekend beyond the LOFT festive promo! Below, highlights from the promos happening this weekend and then below that, more picks from LOFT’s 50% off and 60% off deals.

AERIE | Take 40-60% off the entire Aerie collection and get $10 overnight shipping on orders of $100+. No codes required. | Picks: I just tried on the Aerie Pointelle Sweater (now $30) today and the website photos do not do it justice! Highly recommended. More Aerie picks here.

AMAZON FASHION | There are lots of great deals at Amazon leading up to the holidays! Firstly, take 30% off select shoes and handbags. (Picks here.) You’ll also find tons of great markdowns like dresses under $20, sweaters under $30, boots under $50, coats under $50running shoes under $50 and so much more. You can see all the deals for women here and for men here. | Picks: I recently bought this cute heart elbow-patched sweater for my cousin and she adores it. For myself, I got this pullover winter sweaterjacket in the brown and I love it. (Size up.) That led me to discover this heart-front sweater and this starred sweater, both of which are in my cart right now. I think this leopard sweater is also really cute! Still gift shopping? Make sure you don’t miss my Gifts Under $50 Amazon shopping guide!

AMERICAN EAGLE | Take 40% off your AE purchase and get $10 overnight shipping on orders of $100+. No codes required. | Picks: Stuff is selling out from AE faster than I can feature it! New sweaters in my closet include the Rugby Stripe Pullover Sweater (now $30, on me here) in pink and the Impossibly Soft Cableknit Sweater (now $27). Tops on my wishlist? I don’t normally like items with words on them but I’ll make an exception for the seriously cute Eyelash Balloon Sleeve Sweater (now $30). I adore the pretty stitchwork of the Chenille Crewneck Sweater (now $27) and the Chunky Cableknit Crewneck Sweater (now $27). You can see me in AE jeans in recent OOTDs here, here and here from the back. I am generally a 12 Tall in AE jeans these days.

ANTHROPOLOGIE UPDATED 12/23 | Take 30% off everything, today (Sunday) only. | Picks: Quick picks here; more in-depth dive from a previous 30% weekend here.

BANANA REPUBLIC | Take 50% off your purchase. Cardholders get an extra 10% off with code BRCARD. | Picks: If you missed my 1 item 3 outfit ideas post on BR’s Pleated Midi Skirt, go check it out! If you still need a holiday party or NYE dress I can’t say enough good things about any of these options: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5.

EXPRESS Everything is 50% off! (Even the new stuff.) | Picks: Did you see my recent OOTD post featuring two super-cute striped Express sweaters? I also recommend checking out their New Year’s Eve Edit. Personally I love this dress in multi, and this coat works great over it!

FREE PEOPLE UPDATED 12/23 | The Pretty In Pointelle Bodysuit (now $30)  is on sale today only. Also I noticed stores are doing an extra 25% off sale, so it’s likely this promo will be online soon too.

J. CREW | Take up to 40% off your purchase with code MOREISMORE. This promo ends Saturday night so it’s possible a better deal is coming on Sunday. | Picks: Did you see my Harper Satchel ($328 before discount)? I’m still waiting on my Mini Harper Satchel ($168 before discount) to arrive and just noticed it also comes in pink faux croc and calf hair! I also recommend taking a look at the NYE Outfits Page for major sparkle.

MADEWELL | Take 30% off your purchase with the code VERYMERRY. | Picks: Perhaps you’d love to have a beautiful floral blouse? I’ve got many more picks from the Madewell Holiday Collection here.

OLD NAVY | The entire store is up to 75% off with no code needed! | Picks: Old Navy’s Cable-Knit Crew-Neck Sweater (now $24) has one of the most flattering cable patterns out there. The Textured Crew-Neck Sweater (now $16-$18) is another winner that I’ve had in my closet for years. If you need a good long cardigan (who doesn’t??) the Soft-Brushed Super-Long Open-Front Duster (now $34) is the perfect choice. I own this moto jacket in several colors. Finally, I also love this sherpa moto jacket (it comes in plaid too!).

SUNDANCE | I can’t quite tell if this code is still working, but it’s possible you may still be able to take 20% off your purchase via this link. (You’ll know at checkout.) | | Picks: Sundance Catalog’s Winter hats, scarves, gloves, ear warmers and socks make amazing holiday gifts; their cashmere is so soft and lasts forever (I own and love this sweater and this one too).

You’ve seen all the deals, and now here are the rest of my picks for the LOFT festive promo! All prices in this shoppable boutique are before the 50% off and 60% off is applied. Happy last weekend before Christmas hunting!!

    Yes let's talk about Loft! I went in there yesterday during lunch and I like so much of their stuff right now! I don't know the names of anything but I picked up a very pretty open stitch sweater, some comfy leggings and a nice velvet cami. I'm scanning your picks right now Roxy and I'm probably going to place an order today.

      Those sound like great items!! Yes I'm loving LOFT right now too, and my closet is happier for it.

    I would put Loft on the same level as J Crew right now with synthetic materials but that being said my Loft items lately have held up better. As a petite, few do it better than Loft and it is one of the only places I can go at the last minute for jeans or a dress without needing alterations. I am finding that some of their fits lately are a bit inconsistent than years past but returns are super easy. I am also super psyched about good after Christmas Aerie deals, I can probably stock my lingerie drawer until next year! Happy holidays to all of my Blogger friends!

      I agree, and I also agree that LOFT's items are lasting longer than they used to — hooray for that! The Aerie deals have been great. I have so many pretty bralettes and undies now!

      Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!! 🙂

      I'm delighted to hear this post was helpful Christina!! I would love to hear if there any big winners from your order when it arrives. 🙂
