if you're anything like me, you probably look forward to the end of a season, and not for the weather. most retailers have been advertising sales for a few weeks now, but if you can hold out until the weekend before a new season you'll get the most bang for your buck.
macy's is holding it's one-day sale this saturday, june 20, with the preview day tomorrow. most stores will open at 8 a.m. friday and saturday, with morning specials both days. shoppers can save from 30-85 percent storewide - which includes an additional 40-50 percent off clearance prices. as if that weren't enough, true bargainists can click on the macy's coupon for an extra $10 off any $25 or more in-store purchase. with sales like this and the 15 percent off coupons in the newspaper nearly every week, it almost doesn't make sense to ever buy at full price. i've already been browsing the macy's at cityplace and have my eye on a few bcbg pieces and a couple pairs of shoes...
my next big find of the day is the sale at bebe. i received an e-mail this morning for a *private sale* but i'm pretty sure anyone who registers to buy with the site can receive it. from today through sunday, shoppers will receive 65 percent off the lowest ticketed price on clearnce merchandise in store, and online buyers can take 15 percent off already reduced merchandise by entering the code "shhhsale"at checkout. plus, there is a flat $5 shipping rate on all orders, which isn't half bad.
i already cashed in on the bebe bargain by purchasing the above shimmer boyfriend long jacket in powder rose, which i've had my eye on since i saw it in a magazine ad. orginally $159, it was marked down to about $85 last week, but i waited until it was $69.99 today, and then received an extra 15 percent off with the coupon code! with tax and shipping it still only came to $68 total!
i'm imagining it rolled up with gray jeans, a white lacy tank and espadrilles...or with a white pencil skirt for work...any other suggestions on how to wear it?
