Cyber Monday is a rather recent invention, but a brilliant one no less. It is a shopping holiday on the Monday after Thanksgiving (today), that gives everyone at work (us) a chance to continue the weekend revelry with deep, deep discounts online.
Having worked in online retail for some really terrific online sites, I can tell you the lure of the computer on this Monday is real. After eating too much, traveling, and all of the other joys of the season people are slow to jump back into Excel spreadsheets, and are happy to find that soon to be favorite cashmere sweater on sale for 40%.
Here are some of my favorite sales around the Internet - the bonus to Cyber Monday, no parking, no lines, no shlepping. (Today we are both benefiting from my being oversubscribed to online retailers)
Have fun shopping at:
Bluefly: take an extra 10 - 20% off of everything, saving as much 70% off of the original retail price!
Gap/Banana Republic/Old Navy/Athleta: take 15% off your purchases and get free shipping on any order!
PiperLime: Take 20% off of everything at PiperLime - this is the perfect excuse to pick up that otherwise frivelous clutch, or the too wild for everyday yellow pumps. You love them anyone, you'll love them that much more at 20% off.
National Jean Company/Shop the Shoebox: This online retailer carries nearly every brand under the sun, and very happily it is all nearly 20% off. Take advantage of the savings and the free shipping on orders over $75.
If you're looking to go luxe, the big names are also playing the Cyber Monday game.
Saks Fifth Avenue: Take up to 40% off the designer collections at Saks Fifth Avenue, and get a jump start on this sale before it starts in stores on December 1.
Donna Karan: The new Donna Karan New York site is beautifully edited and feels like a true reflection of the designers high and low brands (Donna Karan New York, and DKNY). The exciting news is that the entire site is 20% off. Seriously, do not wait.
Ralph Lauren: If you read the blog, you know that Ralph is a favorite of mine. Forever favorite. If you also love Ralph, you'll love taking saving an additional 25% off. Thanks, RL.
Enjoy all of these sales, and many more - and don't forget to check the gift guides for the perfect present for you or someone you love!
