Macy’s One Day Sale Picks – February 8 – 9, 2011
As always, it’s incredibly tough to peg when Macy’s will launch a One Day Sale. Sometimes a month and a half will go by between them, sometimes only a few weeks will pass. One thing is certain: These are sales worth paying attention to. The one-day sale prices are some of the best mark downs in the retail industry. Here’s some of the best from the One-Day-Sale which runs Tuesday February 8th – Wednesday February 9th. Know that we’ve only picked items with a wide range of sizes. Also know that items marked with a * are “Web Busters.” In store prices may match up, and may not. Selection on all items (especially shoes) in store can vary greatly.
Alfani Red Grey Sharkskin Suit Jacket – $134.99 ($450) & Pant – $65.00 (reg. $125)
If you’re looking to add a medium to lighter gray suit to your lineup, good for you. The Indochino Ultimate Gray is probably the best affordable option, then followed by the Hilfiger Trim Fit. But if your budget is limiting you to $200 or under? The Macy’s House Brand Alfani Red and their slim fit sharkskin will do you right.
1/2 ct. tw diamond studs in 14k white gold – $249 SUPER BUY (reg. $600)
You’re down to one week. Here’s the thing about “Super Buys”: They’re usually the biggest discount you can grab. They’re a deep enough price cut that Macy’s doesn’t allow you to use any other coupons/offers with it. So it’s about as good as the price will get. Remember, for diamond shopping, in-store is best because you can compare your options side by side. Look for the most sparkle. It should be noticeable.
Lacoste Bateau Boat Sneakers – $59.99 ($75) | Converse Jack Purcell – $37.99 ($50)
Not a bad time to be in the market for black or white canvas sneakers. The Lacostes are boat inspired, and the Converse are the not to be tampered with Jack Purcell. Both shoes come in the opposite color too. Meaning, the Lacoste are available in black, and the JPs in white.
Alfani Red Slim fit PEAK Lapel* Tux Jacket – $140 ($350) & Matching Pant – $60 ($150)
If you’re on a budget and prefer a peak lapel, this is your best bet. The Hilfiger Trim Fit is a step above, but with its notch lapels it doesn’t satisfy the Tuxedo purists. They’re separates, which is perfect if you’re an odd size and have a hard time finding suits.
Hilfiger Button Down Check Dress Shirt – $38.99 (reg. $65.00)
Checked shirts like these will be big this year. And “big” is precisely what this trim fit shirt from Tommy Hilfiger isn’t. Button down collar, nicely spaced smaller check, asking for a knit tie. Was $10 cheaper during the last sale.
INC Dark Heather Blazer – $14.99 (reg. $79.98)
Fifteen Bucks? Really? I tried on a pinstriped INC mainly poly but with some wool mixed in pair of suit separates the other day, and I have to say they didn’t feel half bad. If this thing is anywhere remotely similar to that jacket, then $15 is a steal. Don’t follow the models lead. Leave the man jewelery at home. Or better yet, on the store shelf.
Calvin Klein Deauville Driver – $82.99 (Reg. $98.00)
Drivers are one of those things that’s so simple, designers keep trying to mess with it. Calvin Klein sticks with the classic shape, traction sole, and extended panel at the heel, and thus… gets it right.
This current Macy’s One Day Sale ends Wednesday 2/9.
