March Madness: Special Events, Sales and More

By  | 

As we spring forward into March there are some great sales and events I want to let readers know about.

First up, Bobbi Brown cosmetics is having a 25% off sale. Check their website for details. I’ve been using their products for years. I started using their lipstick a couple of years ago when they were not on the list of brands with lead in lipstick. If you use their cosmetics, now is a good time to restock and get some savings.

The next item I want to let my readers know about is Hayden-Harnett’s upcoming “Spring Sip, Shop, and Style event.” Their NY store is offering Recessionistas the opportunity to get styled by the designers, sip mimosas & bubbly, enjoy appetizers and take 20% off all purchases this Saturday March 21 2009
From 12-6pm at Hayden-Harnett, 253 Elizabeth street. This is my kind of event, where ever there is free Champagne or Mimosas my name is ON the guest list!!!

And finally, the Piperlime week of treats continues with an offer of Rachel Zoe’s Style Guide book with purchase. I recently received a copy of the book and although I would not say all the styles shown are Recessionista friendly, it’s definitely a source of ideas and information. And, I have to admit it’s fun light reading. There are so many pretty pictures in it that it’s interesting to flip through. If you are interested, check out Rachel Zoe’s Style Guide on Amazon to see what reviewers have said. If you think it’s of interest, and there is a great item at Piperlime you love, this is a good opportunity to double dip from their sale and get a free style book.

And just for a smile, check out the news that Oasis’ Liam Gallagher is starting a fashion label. This I can’t wait to see. I’m such an Oasis fan. In the words of Noel, “the little things they make me so happy.” I look forward to a runway show!
