The only thing about the stock market yesterday that brought a smile to our face:
Apparently a satire group performed some sort of skit right outside the Exchange, and they had a dancing bear on hand to represent the mind-numbing bear market. Not seen here? The dancing girls accompanying the bear. The whole thing shrieks “radio station promotion” but we elected not to investigate that possibility. We were laughing inside. (Not. Even. Close.)
It has been awhile since The Princess went shopping online and while you know we are loathe to discuss anything related to the “M word,” it seems to be the only topic on anyone’s mind right now. So we thought it our duty to share a few retailers with you that are determined to help us weather these challenging times. We start with the Barneys Good Guy sale.
Or one of their silk ties in a rich print, stocking up on some basics could be in order. Maybe a lush pair of socks from Italy? Whatever “guy stuff” one might need, odds are it is available at Barneys; likely even at a savings.
Then of course, we have those free shipping offers…
Our good friends at Brooks Brothers are sharing the Fall Homecoming season, and want us to enjoy complimentary shipping when we spend more than $200. This runs through 11:59pm on Sunday, October 19th. No special code needed.
Free shipping on orders totaling $100+ at J. Crew requires one act post haste, you will need to be rather speedy; that little bonus ends at 11:59 pm ET on Wednesday, October 8, 2008. The coupon code is ACORN. An FYI: the discount does not apply to orders over the phone.
Looking for something oh-so-snuggly for the Young Miss in the family? How about the J Crew Crewcuts Girls’ Popover Hoodie, fiscally friendly at more than 50% off its original retail price?
If you need something for the Young Man of the house, the Crewcuts Boys’ Cotton argyle V-neck sweater is very stylish.
Saks is doing its part as well with significant savings throughout the store.
This Ralph Lauren Cashmere Cardigan for Infants is available in pink or blue.
The Tory Burch Canvas “T” Tote is also reduced in price.
Bloomingdales is also doing their part to pitch in and lower prices. The Cole Haan Patent Elly Clutch is bright and vibrant.
The Princess is not fooled by the sunny and warm-for-this-time-of-year climate; the Lilly Pulitzer “Swellie” Rain Boot is just what the weatherman ordered! Especially when Bloomies has it on sale and in the pink houndstooth or the purple and pink spatters. (Our name.)
And let us not forget that Juicy Couture is finally open on Fifth! The new flagship store opened yesterday (the cross is 52nd Street) and it looks like lots of fun.
Complete with tracksuit bar…
And Juicy Couture Kids…
We do hope these brighten your day!
