New Year’s Sales Round-up for Men & Women!

By  | 

For those of us who still have Christmas money to spend, or who have returned presents they received that they did not really want, there are a few note worthy New Year’s sales to let you know about. Although many of us are already on our New Year’s budgets, the prices offered by these retailers will hopefully not break your budget resolve. That’s why I am passing them along. Some of these are marked down 70 to 80%, so they might be worth a look. Here’s the pick list:

For Men Shopping Recessionista: The Gilt Groupe has two fantastic sales going on today. First up, one of my favorites the fabulous Baker Boy: Ted Baker. They are offering Ted Baker shirts, sweaters and other items at deep discounts. Click here to join as the Recessionista’s guest. You must belong to the club to shop the sale.

For the Ladies Shopping Recessionista we have a couple of items worthy of note.

If you’re loving the Thakoon collection at Target right now, you might want to check out the sale of his high-end collection on The Gilt Groupe. The prices are not as good as Target, but they are deeply discounted.

Shopping club Ideeli is having a sale on Emanuel Ungaro clothing and accessories. Warning, the stuff is still pricey, but you are now looking at paying 100s instead of 1,000s for one of his exquisite pieces.
Pictured is one of the beautiful Ungaro jackets from the sale.

Ideeli website, and enter the invite code: Recessionista

If you join Ideeli today, you can enter their Divalysscious Moms giveaway. In this exciting giveaway, one Ideeli winner will receive access to a full six months of Divalysscious Moms events from January to June 2009.

Another deeply discounted designer is BCBG on sale at HauteLook today.
