Father's Day

Weekend Update: Sales and Specials

By  | 

Good morning readers! It’s Saturday–ya! I’m here drinking my fabulous morning coffee and looking over the weekend steals and deals to pass onto recessionistas all over the world.
First up, if you live in the US, today is the early bird Kohl’s sale. There are specials throughout the store on apparel for men and women. It’s a great time to get some Father’s Day gifts, or something for yourself at a great price. If you saw me on ABC this week, I was showing a great Dana Buchman top that I got on sale at Kohl’s. That top has now been further reduced to, wait for it, only $12.00!!!

Pictured: Kohl’s Dana Buchman top on sale today.

If you watched the ABC news show this week, then you may recall that I said I found this top to be “pucci esque.” And by that I meant, the great geometric prints and colors reminded me of the great Emilo Pucci. I lust after Pucci, but of course can rarely afford it, unless I find it at a great sale. So, for those of you who love great colors, I recommend Dana at Kohl’s. The top is sold out online in many of the sizes, but is still available in stores in all sizes (at least in my store!)
Simply Vera and Elle are also on sale today, so grab a bargain while you can. The summer Vera collection has some amazing pieces at low prices.

This Simply Vera hobo bag is a particular favorite of mine. I also showed in on the ABC show, but alas, it didn’t make it into the final footage. This little bag is on sale today marked down from $99.00 to $39.00. I travel alot, and this bag is truly the most comfortable of all the bags I have carried on my shoulder. It’s very lightweight and fits neatly under the arm. I bought it in beige, which is now sold out online, but it’s still available in Kohl’s stores.

The next deal I want to give everyone a heads up on is a little sale designer fashion club Ideeli is having today. Today at Ideeli they are having a very secret handbag sale. They won’t even tell me the name of the designer, but they guarantee this Italian made line is HUGE. Here is a hint, this designer won the Neiman Marcus award in 1947 (is it Salvatore Ferragamo??) Mmm…I’m drawing a blank on this one, as it’s way before my time. I called my Mum and she doesn’t know either. Drats, we’ll just have to take a peak at Ideel online today and see who it is. I believe the sale will start today at 11:00 am EST, 8 am PST for fashion lovers. Click here to join private shopping club Ideeli as my guest to find out who the mystery handbag designer is. Ideeli is also offering something special for Dad today. Father’s Day is coming June 21st. So, in preparation for shopping for the Dads or men in your life, check out Ideeli’s sale on:

Victorinox swiss army watches
Save up to 78%
Prices start at $129
Saturday May 30th

Made to last a lifetime, and just as multi-functional as those namesake knives, these watches boast perks like analog quartz movement, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, titanium parts, and Swiss-made construction. Sleek and elegant, the highly-detailed faces showcase everything from dates and calendars to alternate time zones and pressure gauges. These are truly investment pieces.

If you’re shopping today from outside the US, check out International Clubs Beyond the Rack and Catwalk To Closet. Both of these clubs are having some great sales and further reductions on designer goods.

For more deals, check the right side of the blog for the listings under my The Recessionista’s Top Picks. Everyday I try to list what is new at the shopping clubs and highlight designer deals that you might be interested in.

Enjoy the weekend readers!!! Let me know what bargains you find today.

PS– This just in, new Theory at Loehmann’s today.

    I went to Kohl’s this weekend and I did not see real “super sale” deals going. The 15% coupon just covered the tax and a $1 or $2 off the item
