Sale Picks – Columbus Day Weekend 2011
Leif Ericson really gets the historical shaft. Beating Columbus to North America by 500 years and Christopher gets the day? The Norseman got hosed. But it’s not like we parade in the streets here in America (Vespucci, you’re my boy.) Most of us don’t even get Monday off. Columbus Day in the 21st century basically means the stores have an excuse to mark some stuff down, and your mailbox will be empty that afternoon.
Picks below, and feel free to add more sales and other items in the comments section. Make sure to check underneath the pics of the picks for any codes.
Macy’s: INC Cord Blazer – $59.42 ($99) | Hilfiger Slim Windowpane Suit -$292.49 ($650)
The Deal: Site Wide Selections + 10 – 15% Extra off with code SAVEMORE
Looks like prices have gone up on suits, but the windowpane on the Hilfiger Slim Fit is subtle and unique. Ships free since it’s over $99. If you can’t shell out the $100 for the J. Crew cord sportcoat, the INC is a reasonable alternative for cheap. When it was released it was just available in navy, but it’s now available in grey and black too.
Express: Wool Blend Peacoat – $149.50 ($278) | Merino V-Neck – $48.93 ($69.90)
The Deal: Express: 30% off Outerwear and Sweaters plus tiered code 1746 0r 1750
Been awhile since Express got a mention. This weekend Express is running one of their tiered sales. $15 off $60, $30 off $120, and so on. Remember when it used to be $15 off $30? Anyway, with the 30% off and the code, you can get two of their Italian Merino V-necks for about $40 a piece before shipping. Not incredible, but not terrible either. The peacoat was pushing $300, and with the sale and code it drops to a very nice $150. Half price ain’t half bad, and the length looks to be perfect.
Timberland: Malden Plaid Bomber – $103.60 ($148)
The Deal: Timberland: 30% off new arrivals with TBL1492
And that 30% off drops this high necked plaid bomber down to a more than reasonable $103.60. Red if you want to stand out, grey if you want to stand out… less. You have to use the code TBL1492. Get it? 1492? Har har. (Thanks for the link Jackson.)
Lands’ End Canvas: Crosby Moc Toe Lace-up Boot – $89.99 ($145)
The Deal: L.E.C. Fall sale plus $10 off over $50 with MJ11 and pin 4423
Just in case you missed these yesterday. Black or brown. Ships free too with the code.
GAP: Italian Moleskin Blazer – $94.40 ($118) | Birdseye Cardigan - $27.48 ($54.95)
The Deal: Up to 50% off site wide sale.
No codes here but most of Gap.com seems to be on sale. Birdseye cardigan is a full half off. The moleskin blazer gets dropped well under $100 but it was down to $82 just a few days ago. Between the eyes of birds and the skin of moles, this is starting to sound awfully like a witches brew.
The Deal: Ralph Lauren and Rugby – 25% off with code RLGIVE2011 / MATCH2011
They’ll take 25% off plus donate 10% of your purchase price to charity. The suede boots above are $111.75 after the code, so $150 full retail. That’s oddly affordable for Ralph Lauren (even though they’re from the lower “Polo line.”) What’s even more odd is that they’re made in the United States. Really?
What else? At “press” time these were some of the top sales, but some good to great ones have probably been added since. Leave your sale finds in the comments below.
