IT’S NO secret that retailers are offering special promotions to whet our appetite for Christmas shopping. But we found a few offers that seem tailor-made for us grownup girls. (Be aware that if you happen to purchase something through one of these links, MyLittleBird may receive a commission. Also, some of the discounted prices shown are available only through the links given here.)
I haven’t ventured into an Anthropologie store so I can’t know for sure, but these “relaxed velvet” button-down shirts look butter-soft (but not as sticky). They come in the gold and turquoise shown, also in lilac, a deep inky blue and a lively raspberry. Obviously intended for all grownup girls, the shirts come in standard misses sizes up to size 14 and, depending on the color, in petite and plus sizes as well. The loose-fitting Pilcro Mara Relaxed Velvet Button-down shirt is $128, but Anthropologie is offering 30% off everything on the site November 25 through November 30.
LEFT: A very special Christmas stocking for a special little kid (age 4 and up). The 10-inch stocking comes with an 8-inch mouse prince or princess. Choose the rose color for the mouse in pink tulle and blue for the mouse clad in navy blue trousers. The Miniature Mouse Stocking is designed by 10×2 Studio in collaboration with Anthropologie and each set (stocking and mouse) is $28 (but note the 30% off listed above).
RIGHT: A modern, minimalist baby (or at least the modern, minimalist parents) should appreciate these Crew-Neck Long-Sleeve Bodysuits, in sizes up to 24 months, from Uniqlo. Each two-piece 100% cotton set comes in light gray, deep yellow or a rich blue and is $9.90, but you can grab two sets for $14.90. It might take some doing, but if you rack up a $150 purchase at Uniqlo, they’ll give you a set of three white AIRism face masks as a gift, as long as stocks last (you can also buy the set of face masks alone for $14.90).
LEFT: Is there anyone unhappy at the sight of a Harry & David gift box coming their way? Hard to imagine. The Christmas Snack Box shown is $79.99. Included are six of their big, juicy Royal Riviera Pears, a couple of kinds of sausage, a couple of cheeses, some crackers—you get the picture. Also, on their Sale page, Harry & David are offering chocolate-covered fruit, fudge mint cookies and other goodies.
RIGHT: These Sennheiser earbuds are far more sophisticated than some of us will ever be: They promise fabulous sound (natch), plus refined touch controls, a seven-hour battery life—and the music stops when you take the earbuds off and resumes where you left off when you reinsert them. The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless V2 Earbuds come with a charging case and are $299.95 at Neiman Marcus, and they qualify for a $50 discount when you use the code THANKFUL when checking out.
LEFT: That sexy Dyson Supersonic hair dryer is still a heart-stopping $399.99, but the Dyson site is offering two gifts worth up to $120 with your purchase. You select the gifts at checkout (they include a choice of a hair dryer stand, a silver case for the appliance, and vented barrel brushes).
RIGHT: The House of Fluff has figured it out: Their faux fur is made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles, and they’ve developed BIOFUR, made with a plant-based polymer. Beyond that, the colors and the styles are great. The 100% Recycled Teddy Hoodie, shown in lavender, also comes in marine blue (other BIOFUR styles include a cool zip-front ski jacket, anoraks and peacoats). The hoodie is $375, but House of Fluff is offering a 15% discount to MyLittleBird readers using the checkout code THANKS15.
Snow or no snow, winter requires boots. And Zappos has some discounts in mind, available up till December 1.
LEFT: It’s 40% off Sorel boots at Zappos.com. Shown are the Explorer Carnival boots with a waterproof nylon upper. Available in six colors (including red and a great army green), they’re $129.95, less the discount.
RIGHT: Crocs also get 40% off till December 1. Shown here is the Classic Blitzen III Clog, also available in navy with slate gray faux shearling collar, $49.99, less the discount.
LEFT: Hard to imagine a more enduring buy than a classic Barbour Waxed Cotton Rain Jacket with removable faux shearling collar. We’re all mad for what Barbour calls Archive Olive this year, but the field jacket also comes in black. It was $475, but is now $289.97 at Nordstrom Rack.
RIGHT: Outdoor Voices has come up with a style that blends trends: It’s a bomber jacket, plus it’s made of cozy MegaFleece, and it features subtle color-blocking. Here’s it’s an Oatmeal/Amber matchup; the jacket also comes in black. It’s $158, but for new customers with orders over $100, there’s a 20% discount until November 26.
