Hello-Hello, greetings for another week!
We have several Sales and Savings to report today; some may be repetitious but we thought they bore a second run, beginning with Brooks Brothers.
Brooks has taken significant markdowns on many items, including several pieces that definitely qualify as Adventures in Argyle.
The Merino Argyle Cardigan is now $117.60 ($168), and on the right we have the Cashmere Argyle cardigan, now $208.60 (originally $298). Both seemed to be available in almost all sizes as of this writing.
The Country Club Mini-Argyle crew sock is now $16 (originally $40) and the Cotton Argyle Anklet now $6 ($15); both are offered in a variety of colorways.
As The Consort has been heard to say: “You can’t go wrong with a good pair of socks from Brooks Brothers.”
Not on sale at Brooks, but definitely worthy of a mention, the St. Jude Collection, including the Brooksie ™ Bear.
The retailer is donating $5 from the sale of each bear to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. There are several other items in this collection at Brooks Brothers, all with a portion of sales going to the hospital and research center.
Also offering a sizable selection of Sale merchandise, Lacoste; the hat originally ($45, now $24.99) and gloves (originally $40, now $27.99) shown below definitely qualify as Pretty in Pink.
Over at Bergdorf, their semi-annual sale is underway.
J. Crew continues their ‘holiday sale‘:
One item of note: Crew is also offering 20% off all orders of $150 or more; use promo code INSIDER at checkout. This is online only and ends Wednesday night (the 18th) at midnight.
Nautica has a solid selection of discounted merchandise in their online Sale section. We simply adore the Girls Anchor Print Skirt is now $14.99, originally it sold at $30. We also like the Girls Signal Flag polo.
Two things we fell in love with: the Baby Anchor Print Hoodie (now $14.99) and the Baby Dreamer Sweater Coat (now $21.99)
The item that really sent us over the moon? The Infant Plaid Trim Onesie.
If that doesn’t qualify as Prepalicious we don’t know what will; it is off the charts on the Cute-o-meter. (It is also only $9.99.)
We have an update to the Jimmy Choo for H & M post from Friday: it was bedlam at most H&M stores when the collection went on sale Saturday. In Vancouver shoppers camped outside the store.
From a MarketWatch story:
“…the greater part of both Choo’s ladies’ and men’s collections sold out…. Even in Madrid, the epicenter of one of Europe’s most recession-battered economies, plenty of women and men could be seen toting glossy blue H&M bags Saturday afternoon.”
Below, Gossip Girl star Michelle Trachtenberg was among those shopping the H&M on Fifth this weekend.
Speaking of Gossip Girl, many of Ms. Trachtenberg’s costars were seen at last night’s private screening of ‘The Private Lives of Pippa Lee‘.
Blake Lively was at the screening, along with Keanu Reeves, Julianne Moore, Robin Wright Penn, director Rebecca Miller and Zoe Kazan.
Many of the actress’s G2 costars were also in attendance, including Chace Crawford.
And real-life sweetheart Penn Badgley was on hand as well.
The film has a November 27 release date.

Thanks for helping me spend my money 🙂
But Blake forgot to wear a shirt. I’ll just Twitter her right now and tell her:).
I LOVE argyle! That little anchor coat is too cute for words!
That bear is adorably uptight-looking.
Love argyle. I’ll go check out the BB site.
I have formally requested the Brooksie for Christmas. It looks like my boyfriend with fur! haha
Thanks for the sales updates. I think Blake may need to think about adding a few more pieces of clothing to her wardrobe. Décolletage is one thing. Showing the navel is another.
So many sales! I love those argyle sweaters at BB. So classic. As for Blake, I’m with the other girls – her tatas kind of scare me…they seem so, plastic?! Oh well! I wish I could have gotten my hands on some of those Jimmy Choos!
Ooooh, how adorable is that prepped out onesie?!! Crazy cute!
What a cute bear!
