Sale opportunities at Roaman’s

Filed under: Fashion,Sales — Francesca @ 1:25 pm

OK, ladies, this gets a little complicated, so pay attention.

Today and tomorrow, enter code RD15761 at checkout at, and you will receive the following discounts:

20% off your highest-priced item and

30% off your second-highest priced item (if you order at least 3 items) and

40% off your third-highest-priced item (if you order at least 5 items).

OK, are you with me so far? Good.

Now. Roaman’s is also having a clearance sale. If you buy a clearance item between now and Friday, you will get an additional 25% off that item by entering code RD15720 at checkout.

The catch is that you can’t combine these sales codes. It’s one or the other. Francesca says: Do one order today or tomorrow with non-clearance items and use the first code, then do another order of clearance items using the second code. Strategic planning, see?

Francesca’s picks:

Military jacket with antique pewter buttons

Cropped jacket and empire-waist dress

Happy shopping!



  1. Curious to hear from someone who’s ordered from Roaman’s. I’ve had no experience with them but as a result of this post (thanks!) I found a skirt I’d like to order. Took a peek at the size chart and was astounded to see that I’m apparently a 22 in Roaman’s sizes, but yet I’m a 16 or 18 elsewhere. I know fits vary, but that seems like a huge difference. Do you find that size chart to be accurate?

  2. I’ve ordered things from them before, and I was a 24/26 at the time in most stores. However, at Roamans, I had to order a 30 and occasionally a 32. It’s one of the few times it might actually in your best interest to go by the given measurements.

    I’m kind of apple-shaped, but I’m kind of rectangular in a sense, so YMMV.

  3. I must admit I haven’t had the same issues with fit at Roaman’s…at least not to the same level. I think I had to go up a size on a couple shirts. Still, if in doubt, I think it’s always best to go by measurements rather than size tag.

  4. Thanks for the info! I fell in love with that red/black houndstooth skirt, then noticed a few minutes ago that it’s only 23″ long. Unfortunately, at 6’1″ that just won’t work for me. Blah!
