eLuxury new sale arrivals

Sorry for the decrease in posts today (ok, yesterday, Thursday). My workday has been hectic, and I've just spent literally 4 hours making chocolate covered pretzels.

AND I still need to do some work in prep for a meeting tomorrow.

I will get back to posting tomorrow, but for tonight... eLuxury has bulked up their sale section with some 3.1 Phillip Lim and James Perse(my favs!), Juicy Couture, and Y-3, and more.

Portolano sample sale

Cold weather accessories! I always see Portolano on Bluefly, so I suppose it is 'designer'. Whatever. Who can argue with highly discounted leather gloves lined in silk and cashmere? Or a new Nepalese pashmina to replace the one from the Jennifer Aniston Friends days. They will also have hat/glove/scarf sets, which will be really cute gifts, although for your more trendy friends, I'd still hit up the Marc Jacobs accessories store on Bleeker St. for those cheap cashmere gloves/hats that are appropriately branded.

Expect some random miscellany as well: handbags, leather goods, silk ties, hosiery, cashmere sweaters and god knows what else. No refunds or exchanges.

Paragon Sports gift card event

Paragon Sports is getting in on the gift card action. Now usually I don't think these things are a big deal because honestly, getting $25 in exchange for spending $500 or whatever seems like a bad deal to me. I guess if you're in the market for big ticket items, like $2000 bags, then it it can be a worthy return. However, starting at purchases of $100+, Paragon's gift card return seems a bit more accessible. You need to have registered with to qualify. Ends Thursday, Oct. 30th.

Tina Tang 20% off

I love Tina Tang's jewelry. First, she has the same name as me, which gives her an unfair advantage. Second, her shop is literally around the corner and down the block from where I live. Third, her jewelry is SUPER CUTE. I got one of the first Re-Leaf necklaces way back when, and I have gotten sooo many comments on it.

It made me sad when I read her quote in a recent news article, discussing how the flailing economy has affected her business and put a serious dent in her walk-in traffic at Gold Label by Tina Tang, her more upscale shop (she has 2) which sells pieces accented with diamonds and stones. I suppose it is no surprise that a promotion would be forthcoming (fab news for us!). If shopping online, use "STOREANDTT" to get 20% off or mention the 'Store Adore' email/promotion if you go in the store (Gold Label only). Ends Saturday, Nov. 15th. Seriously, and I know I'm sounding like I work for them, but I promise I don't, drop by if you're in the neighborhood or around Bleeker St. I think you'll like it. My personal favorites are her charms, big bold rings, and zodiac necklaces.

Lounge closing shop

Update: Caveat emptor:'s commenters have suggested their spurious 'sale' prices might not be any different from prior to this closing sale (by tinkering with 'original' prices). ¡Escándalo!

Although I have never frequented Lounge, I'm sorry I missed it. Their inventory sounds/sounded wonderful, and now, even better at crazy reduced prices as they sell it all off. I guess sometimes the lost lease cloud has a silver lining. Note: Endurance challenge ahead. Sale isn't due to end for a couple of weeks.

Marchesa sample sale report

I popped by the Marchesa sale today, and since I wasn't in the mood to spend $2000, I walked away empty handed. Overall the selection of short dresses was the beaded variety (I prefer the flouncy floral detail), and if you're looking for a prom-esque Emmy gown, this will be fantastic for you. And although the flyer says $35 stoles, I have no idea where they were. There is also a very small "as is" rack with goodies for $75. The selection was small, and a sales girl said she thinks they will get new stuff in everyday. You can also get additional discounts if you buy multiple pieces.

Notte by Marchesa

Anthropologie sale

Sometime in the past 5 years, Anthropologie has really exploded as the go-to store for the trendy artsy bohemian types (read: almost everyone). Around the same time, prices started going up up up. So I'm letting you know that their current sale looks very good. Tops priced between $20-40 (as opposed to $70-120). Count me in!
