Online: Sale on women’s apparel at Nordstrom! They have sizes up to 24W! Shipping is $5 online! Look at this lamb leather jacket, available through size 18 and it is 33% off. Notice the apple-friendly shape! Francesca likes!

Online and in-stores: Here is a “gift cheque” from Lane Bryant, good in stores through January 15. Details of how much of a deduction you get under different circumstances are on the coupon. To get the same deal online, enter code 025007343 at checkout. They are having a sale right now on bras and sleepwear – we all know how hard it is to find plus-size robes and pajamas. Here, this is on sale, from $99.50 to just $39.80. Use the coupon code and save even more. Francesca likes!

For Girls of Height: J.Crew has a (limited but quality) Tall department, and they are having a sale. And, now through Sunday night, you additionally get free shipping on orders of $175 or more if you enter code FREESHIP08 at checkout.

Kiyonna has added new items to their sale pages, including this very cute, Ssatin charmeuse wrap dress, which Francesca likes if you have the curvy hourglass figure! 30% off! Also, at Kiyonna, if you spend $100 and are shipping to the US, you get free shipping.

Online: Avenue is having a pants sale until tomorrow (I apologize for not telling you sooner), AND, until next Thursday, January 17, no matter what you buy, if you enter code AV81015 you’ll get 15% off your purchase. Here, from the pants sale, these chinos, also available in Petite and Tall sizes, are only $16.99 if you use the coupon code! A savings of over 50%!

In stores: Avenue is having their semi-annual sale, and items are up to 70 percent off. Save even more by clicking here, printing the coupon, and bringing it with you; it allows you to save an additional 40% on any one sale item. The coupon is good through Thursday, January 17 (next week)

Look! A plus-size section at Macy’s, having a sale! Ten web pages of nice things! Look, this beautiful red jacket is $78 off, in sizes 1x, 2x, and 3x! And, through January 13, enter code 99CENTS at checkout and get shipping for just 99 cents on all fashion items! Thank you to our internet friend The Dowdydiva for alerting us to this shipping promotion.

Online and in stores: Talbots is having their semi-annual clearance sale. Items up to 70% off. You all know how Francesca feels about Talbots. If you persist in imagining that the clothes are fuddy-duddy, now is the time to actually visit a store and see why Francesca raves about their Woman and Woman Petite departments. Also, now until January 14, if you spend over $100, you will get a gift card of $25, which you can use if you buy an additional $100 of items between January 15-February 2.

Sale at Sydney’s Closet (party and evening dresses, sizes 14-44) through January 15! Items are up to 70% off. Plus, if you enter code EXTRA10 at checkout, you get an additional $10 off dresses.

Not a sale notice, but of interest: Those of you who like the bohemian/hippie look will like HolyClothing‘s new Lucetta peasant skirt. They have made 50 of them, and they are available here on ebay. Also, their “gypsy flare top” is available in new colors.

Happy shopping!

  4. The Dowdydiva thanks the Francesca for turning her on to Igigi – I got a lovely blue wrap dress which is apple-tastic.

    The Husband of the Dowdydiva also got her the lovely blue satin Lane Bryant jacket for Christmas along with the wonderful Chelsea pant!

    And the Talbots has the best basics! If you can find their silk tees, grab them!
