Hey, everyone – did you know that Lord & Taylor is in the midst of a pretty sweet sale? The annual “Friends & Family” event is on through Wednesday, December 18. It’s a perfect time to get some premium items at a pretty good discount.
The F&F fine print says that you can “receive 25% off regular & sale items, 30% off ladies’ shoes and kids’ clothing, and 10% off cosmetics, fragrances and gourmet when you use promo code: FRIENDS at checkout.” Bolding is mine, because that’s a BFD. Beauty and skincare are absolutely never discounted during department store sales. Plus, 25% off clothes and 30% off shoes? Definitely worthwhile to spend some time on their site this weekend. Here are some of the things I’ve got my eye on:
Quasar boot, Franco Sarto | $76.99 with discount
I own these boots and I probably wear them three times a week. They are incredibly comfortable and work with tights and a dress as well as they work under a pair of pants. They are also available in black or cognac, though neither of those has the sweet crocodile texture on the heel.
Wool Sweater Dress, Shoshanna | $262.50 with discount
If I had an unlimited supply of dollars in my bank account, I think I might own every single dress that Shoshanna sells. Designed for ladies with bigger – ahem – ladies, these dresses are supremely flattering and very high-quality. Unfortunately, with the typical price tag being >$300, it’s just not in my budget to make that dream come true. At a 25% discount, however, a beautiful a-line sweater dress like this one becomes a little more attainable.
Beautiful Eyes gift set, Estee Lauder | $54 with discount
You already know my love for Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair, but what you don’t know is that I also adore the ANR eye cream and the DayWear SPF moisturizer. This kit comes with a full-size eye cream and travel size ANR and DayWear, plus a well-reviewed mascara, for only $5 more than the eye cream costs on its own. With the 10% discount, it comes to $1 less! No-brainer.
In similar news, Neiman Marcus is offering an additional 20% off already-reduced prices through Saturday 12/14, no code necessary. Alas, does not include beauty, but does include some amazing brands like Theory, Kate Spade, and the aforementioned Shoshanna.
