Deals and Steals for the Weekend

So, my little dumplings, are we ready for some great ways to save on pretties this weekend? I certainly hope so, because I’m  about to lay them on you. Here we go.

LB Linen Stripe Trouser Lane Bryant is having a great deal now through June 16. Spend $50.00, get a discount of $15.00. Spend more, save more. It goes up incrementally to $75.00 off any order of $225.00 or more. See here for details. The code to use at checkout? Is: 015002549. As for what to buy, you could do a heck of a lot worse than these fabulous pinstriped linen trousers. They come in Frost Grey (shown) or Neutral (a pretty soft beige), and talls and petites as well as regular length. The linen/rayon blend is machine washable for easy care superfantasticness, too. And at $59.50, they start off affordable and then qualify for the discount all on their own. Just add a crisp menswear shirt, a statement necklace or scarf, and a great pair of shoes to put together a classic Kate Hepburn vibe that will take over your world. Then again, they would look terrific with a simple tank, a great pair of sandals, and a floppy sunhat, too.

FB Microfiber Bra Of course we all need some support. Why shouldn’t it be colorful, too? And why not inexpensive while we’re at it? Fashion Bug is having a sale on intimates right now. For instance, this deliciously colorful microfiber soft cup bra is just $19.99 to start with, but it’s also on sale right now. Buy two, get two free. Comes in a choice of four yummy brights to lift your spirits as well as your bustline. Sizes run from 40C to 48DDD.

Be sure to check out the panties at buy three, get three free and shapewear at buy one, get one free, while you’re there.

Even in summer, we still need jackets and wraps sometimes. An evening turns cool, a morning is foggy, or we just need some special touch to finish off an outfit perfectly. Whatever the reason, I suggest looking into some of the great deals at La Grande Dame, and this charming jacket by XCVI in particular:

LGD Fairweather Jacket This all cotton, wash and wear blazer with its 3/4 sleeves is a great casual touch whether you’re in jeans, a skirt, or a simple dress. In fact, I think it would look beyond spiffy with those trousers at the top of this article. What’s more, it should stand you in good stead through most of the spring and fall, too. Comes in coral (shown) or chocolate in sizes from 1X – 3X. Be warned, though, it runs a little small in the bust and waist. If you’re between sizes, order up.

As for the price, well, it started out at $87.00, but it’s now on sale for just $69.00. Now that’s a pretty good deal.

    I just found these in my local store last night (so high pitched squeals when I saw them here this am) If you scour the stores, they also have an extremely limited supply in black – those are already sold out online

    I think I heard the squeal, Thea. ; )

    I own that jacket and it’s much better than its picture. Run, don’t walk.

    No way will you convince me that Lane Bryant sells trousers that long.

    @BSAG- Why not? I’m 5’10” (~34″ inseam) and the tall length is long enough to fit me pretty much exactly like that. I have a lovel pair of cream trousers that I actually had to have shortened because even in heels they were too long!
