Weekly Shopping Update

April 23, 2013

Retailers are kicking into high gear for the last week of April, vying for the attention of shoppers with friends & family sales.

Until April 28, take 25% off your total purchase at J. Crew with code SPRINGBEST (or, for cardholders, use code CARDSTYLE for 30% off).

Everly Patent Wedges
I know I am not alone in loving the oversized jewelry pervading J. Crew's print literature and website. Yes, they are slightly garish but also so much fun (if your neck can handle the weight).

Shop Saks Fifth Avenue's Friends & Family sale through April 28 with code FRNFAM2 for 25% off most purchases (designer exclusions can be found here). If your order exceeds $200, use code SFASHIP for free shipping. The Diane von Furstenberg Zarita Lace Dress that was a big hit in a previous sale post is on sale in Cornflower Blue and is quite the steal with an additional 25% off.

Neiman Marcus' double gift card event is back (offer ends today, the 23rd of April). Get up to $600 back in gift cards with a $2000 purchase when you purchase at least one item from both the apparels' department and the shoes or bags departments. You must enter code BET2GET at checkout to qualify for the gift card.

Neiman Marcus has an unreliable history of issuing gift cards of less value than initially advertised so please save screenshots of your order confirmation page and the product pages of the items that you purchased to use as proof if you run into an issue later on.

Macy's Friends & Family Sale is now online (ends 4/29), use code FRIEND at checkout for 25% off your total purchase.

I am this_close to pulling the trigger on a Michael Kors Selma Large East West Satchel but think there is a possibility for better discounts down the road.

If your budget is under $300, this Dooney & Bourke Satchel is not a bad option. In darker colors the contrasting tan handle and shoulder strap give it a slightly more casual touch.
I was asked to revisit the Limited Striped Flared-Skirt Dress that I purchased recently after taking it out for a few spins. My opinion of it hasn't changed and I still love it. So much so that I am probably going to have the torso taken in professionally. The dress is a bestseller for the Limited but random sizes pop back daily online.
Full-price styles are 30% off and sale items are an additional 40% off at Ann Taylor. No codes are needed and your discount will show up at checkout. The Textured Petal Pencil Skirt I reviewed in this post is now on sale and is eligible for the extra 40% off discount. Other items I feel have promise include this Striped Cotton Snap Front Sweater Jacket and the Cascade Shell.

ASOS's mid-season sale has been a fun one to browse. There are lots of hidden gems but sizes are mostly incomplete at this point. Use code CHECKOUTTREAT for an additional 10% off your order (must spend $75+). I am not really drawn to most sale styles but may order this Caged Bow Back Swimsuit for an upcoming vacation.

I will try to update this post tonight or tomorrow with additional sale information. In the meantime, happy shopping!
