5 Sales To Check Out This Weekend!

     How have I been getting through this time of social distancing while staying sane? Two words: online shopping. A lot of my usual monthly expenses are completely paused (gas, eating out, etc), so I've had some extra cash over the past few weeks. I am putting some of it away in savings, but it's also been fun to treat myself a little more than usual. And a lot of the online sales that have been happening have been really good! It is a little overwhelming on how many retailers are offering big discounts right now- so for today I just want to share five sales that are on my personal radar for this week. If there's any you've been shopping that I don't list- please share in the comments! 😊

5 Sales For Easter Weekend:

     1. Lilly Pulitzer - This is huge! For the first time ever, Lilly Pulitzer is offering a sale on their new arrivals. This NEVER happens!! (The twice a year After Party Sales are on the previous season's merchandise.) They're currently having 30% off everything on the website. Lilly has so many cute prints in this year's spring line- I especially love anything in Coral Bay, Fished My Wish and Paradise Found. This sale ends Monday 4/13!
     If you're curious about some of my favorite spring Lilly styles and the sizes I wear- see this try-on post from February with the Lilly Pulitzer Charlottesville store!

     2. Ann Taylor - If my job had a business dress code, I would live in Ann Taylor pieces every day. Their clothing is classic, professional and timeless. I do have some Ann Taylor things now, but most of them I've purchased on clearance or sales like Black Friday, as their new arrivals are quite pricey. Good news: today and tomorrow Ann Taylor has 50% off, plus an extra 10% off! What an incredible deal. If you're looking for investment pieces in your closet that you'll wear time and time again, check out this sale.

     3. Barrington Gifts - I'd had a Barrington tote bag on my wishlist for years, and finally got one last fall. I am obsessed with my personalized St. Anne tote- it's quickly become one of my favorite bags for both travel (perfect carry-on!) and everyday wear. These totes are more of an investment purchase, but I think 100% worth it. They also have a ton of new fun prints and designs for the spring and summer season! Barrington also makes a lot of other fun things like wallets, tech accessories, stuff for guys, and more. They rarely have sales, so I was delighted to see they're currently offering 20% off everything on their website with code TOGETHER!
     I published a full review of my Barrington Gifts St. Anne tote in this blog post that you can also check out!

     4. Belk - My favorite Southern department store has a fantastic online sale running now! Belk is offering 35% off regular purchases and any of their house brands, 25% off most national brands, and 15% off beauty and a few other things. I've been an avid Belk shopper ever since I moved to the South in 2012. I own so much from there- clothes, shoes, beauty, home stuff, and more! I'm an especially big fan of Belk's preppy house brand, Crown & Ivy-  a lot of their pieces remind me so much of Lilly and Vineyard vines!
     I ordered this Crown & Ivy dress last week when this sale began- it arrives today and I can't wait!

     5. Land of the Pine Design - And lastly- a small business of note to shop this weekend! My friend Cara from Caralina Style and her boyfriend TJ teamed up last summer to launch a shop with their custom designed accessories. They relaunched it this week, and they're currently donating 100% of proceeds to Feeding America. How amazing is that?! Often when you shop for charity it's only a portion of proceeds that are donated, so I think it's amazing they're donating all proceeds to such a wonderful cause in this tough time. Cara told me they will be adding more new items this week as well. I'm planning to order this gorgeous sunhat!

    I know I promised y'all that my Kennebunk/Kennebunkport Maine travel guide would be up today, but it's taking a little longer than I had anticipated to put it together. Since I'm writing about my hometown- I have a lot to say! 😉 I can't wait to share it with you next week though.

    Have a wonderful and blessed Easter weekend at home!

    God Bless,

     xoxo Annaliese
