From Francesca’s inbox: Post Election edition

Filed under: Sales — Francesca @ 9:18 am

Well, the campaign season is finally over. Whether as a happy treat or a consolation prize, you deserve to do some shopping! Francesca is here to help!

Buy any dress at (online only) and get 40% off by using code AV81269 at checkout. Avenue did not provide Francesca with a deadline for this code. See all the dresses here. The silver sheath dress at right is under $60.

In the market for a new coat? They are 50% off at Woman Within (this deal was supposed to end yesterday, but Francesca sees that the sale is still going on).

Today and tomorrow: Take $20 off Women’s Plus cashmere sweaters at Old Navy. They’ve got cashmere hoodies and scoop-necks.

Also ending tomorrow: Save $7 off any $35 purchase at by entering code alight7 at checkout. (Francesca also notices that they have opened a new store on Long Island, in Plainview, NY.)

There are many beautiful new items at Talbots Woman and Woman Petite. They currently have two deals happening:

a) Buy one item, get a second (of equal or lesser value) for half price (applies to regular-priced items only) and

b) Get free shipping from or from the catalogue if you order $150 or more of merchandise.

Happy shopping!




  1. I have to commend this blog and those of you that write it for bringing politics into your blog. I’m sick of blogs I read that are about fashion, or music, or crafts, or anything else turning instead into “You should vote for X! And if you don’t, how could you even call yourself a human being?”

    So thank you so much for staying classy and on-topic, which so many blogs seem unable to do this election.

  2. Whoops, that would be not bringing politics into your blog.

  3. I am absolutely disgusted with the Avenue. I bought that exact silver dress last week and just got it today. The material couldn’t be cheaper, plus it’s completely unlined. Oh, and they shipped it loosely in a huge bag, so the dress not only has fold marks, it looks like crumpled paper, too. For $60, you would think you would get better quality in both the garment and shipping. Guess they’re off my list of online retailers, which is too bad, as I get most of my stuff online.
