Five Things, Five Sales

5 items, 5 sales

Color me out of the loop. Joe mentioned to me earlier in the week that he would get next Monday off from work (lucky duck), and it didn’t hit me until yesterday that it was for Columbus Day. Because it’s October. As in, Thanksgiving is next month.

In any case, the holiday correlates to a lot of really great (and awfully tempting) sales that are happening right now! I’ve been eyeing a few, and thought I’d share some of my favorites — like the fact that everything at is currently 35% off (I love this herringbone puffer vest!), or that you can take an extra 40% off sale items at J.Crew (this and this, please).

Two of my favorite home decor places are also offering 20% off everything. I’ve been coveting these beautiful hurricanes from Serena & Lily (I need to find a place for them), and this horn sculpture from Mr. Jonathan Adler (and though there’s currently a pillow moratorium at our house, I love the letter ones!). Finally, one of my go-to shops for jewelry, Bauble Bar, is hosting a Friends & Family event, where you get 10% off any purchase of $50 or more, and the savings go up from there! I always get compliments on my necklaces from there, and now I’m eyeing this one too!

Here are the codes you’ll need:

Gap: GAPSAIL, ends 10/14
Bauble Bar: 10% off, FRIEND10 | 15% off, FRIEND15 | 20% off, FRIEND20; ends 10/14
Serena & Lily: MYFF30KMG, ends 10/15 (update: this is a special 30% discount for vmac+cheese readers!)
Jonathan Adler: FF2013, ends 10/15
J.Crew: EXTRA40, ends 10/13

Happy shopping!

    I actually ordered that blazer yesterday! It’s selling out SOO fast though, glad I snapped it up before all the sizes were gone!

    Oh I need that puffer vest. I may have convinced my boss to give us Columbus Day off. Thanks Christopher!
