Best of: Lord and Taylor’s “Friends and Family” Sale

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:

franco sarto quasar

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.

shoshanna wool sweater dress

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.

estee lauder beautiful eyes

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.
