Sales & Savings and A Giveaway

Hello-Hello, and Merry Christmas Eve!

We are ever-so-excited to be spending lots of time with both sides of the family over the next week, so posts will be sparse, but that’s a good thing. We need a bit of a rest and know you do as well!

For those planning on shopping online over the next two days there are loads of Sales and Savings underway.  Brooks Brothers starts their clearance tomorrow, and is also doing an online only promotion.

J. Crew has already started their Final Sale.

There are savings at almost every preppish retailer one can name, so hopefully those interested in adding to the walk-in can do so in a more fiscally-friendly way.


Now, to help tide us over the slimmer posts, we are offering a little giveaway done in tandem with the one and only Social Climber!

Social Climbers

As some readers know, Beth Dunn is an author generating some book buzz with her novel Social Climbers.  We know loads of bloggers who have read the novel, and expect to do so ourselves over the holidays. And Beth is doing a giveaway on her blog!

And in addition to the book, the lucky winner will receive a set of Lilly Pulitzer Stuck on You sticky notes….

…and the a very preppy 2010 Calendar from Donovan Designs,

To enter, scoot over here and say hello to Beth, she is simply delightful.

The lucky winner will be chosen Friday January 1st and announced Saturday January 2nd on Beth’s blog.
Most readers know that despite relentless occasional wanderings into discussions about commercial endeavors, we generally effort content a tad more cerebral. (The Consort is now on the floor, he laughed himself right out of his chair.) Therefore we leave you these images, because the season was never meant to be about this…
