From Francesca’s Inbox: Sales for the Weekend

Filed under: From Francesca's Inbox — Francesca @ 9:30 am

Francesca gets all the email and newsletters, so you don’t have to!

Just My Size is having a huge 25% off saleicon through November 8. What say you about this red organza blouse? Francesca cannot decide whether it is holiday-perfect or God-awful. Perhaps it depends on the person, the party,  and the geographical region? Francesca is thinking that lighting matters here. Thoughts? Anyhow, see also their sales on brasicon, minimizersicon, swimwearicon, and hosieryicon.

Bigger Bras is offering two different coupons (use one or the other): For 25% off purchases of $100 or more, use code 25togo (offer good today and tomorrow). OR, for free U.S. shipping on orders of $25 or more, use code freeship (expires December 29!)

Old Navy wants you to know that they have dresses starting at $20, though Francesca also sees on the same page some cute ones starting at $12.99. Also a nice collection of knee-length denim skirts, and sweaters for fall.

Evans is having sales on some very cute lingerie and sleepwear, and necklaces. They also want you to see their new party collection. Remember, pricing and sizes are British.

Donna Ricco wants you to see their new dresses. Click here to go straight to plus sizes.

NorthStyle wishes you to check out their sale and clearance page.

Saks Fifth Avenue has pretty pictures of new Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes and handbags. Also, Francesca wishes to remind you that they do have a plus-size section, called Salon Z.

J.Jill has taken new markdowns and introduced new items.

Avenue wants you to see their new faux-leather jackets. Francesca is fond of the “distressed” jacket with gold tint (pictured).

Chico’s wants you to see their clothes to wear to holiday parties.

Ann Taylor is having a sale. Click here for items available in size 16, here for items in size 18. (14. 12.)

CJ Banks is having a 25% off sale on outerwear, online only.

Junonia will take 31% off all black apparel through tomorrow night! A search on their website for “black” turned up 272 items. See them here.

Roaman’s will take 50% off your lower-priced sweater, if you buy 2 sweaters by tomorrow night. Yes. No. Maybe.


  1. fyi, you shoppers — i ordered the Old Navy split-tie neck (sic) (IT NEEDS ANOTHER HYPHEN BETWEEN TIE AND NECK NO I’M NOT ANAL SHUT UP) because hey, $9.99. but it’s cut really weird — very loose and wide on top with a high-but-not-quite-empire waist. i could see it working on apple-y girls but SO not on pear-shaped me.

  2. FYI X II, if you haven’t been to an Evans store, I recommend caution in ordering from them – they use really hinky fabric; it’s often durable but has a nasty texture, so if you’re at all unsure, be wary.

  3. Put that red organza blouse with a black taffeta circle skirt (with net underskirt) and you, too, can be 50s housewife fabu…. It’s definitely what my gay boyfriend, Tim Gunn, would call “a lot of look.”

  4. The Junonia sale doesn’t seem to be working. :(
