Don’t Miss The Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Clothing Sale — Starts Thursday, February 4

Just a little reminder that the Sharon Young & Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Sale opens its doors to the public this Thursday (Feb. 4-6)! We popped over for a preview and found SO MANY great finds. As promised, we are sharing some of our favorite bargains — even lots of insider tips you’ll want to know before you go!

Here’s the inside scoop on the sale:

Sharon Young Crochet Sweater

This direct from the designer sale only opens its doors to the public four times a year, and the sale runs this Thursday to Saturday, February 4 to 6. Everything is deeply discounted OFF retail (prices starting at $20), and you’ll find a variety of styles and sizes to fit just about anyone.

Here are a few insider tips to find the best deals when you go:

Sharon Young February 2016 sale  Red Sharon Young Poncho

~ Click on any picture for a closeup view ~

Insider Tip #1: For the best selection, go to the sale as soon as you can. Some styles/sizes are limited in quantity and sell out fast —  the earlier you can go, the better.

Insider Tip #2:  There will be a surprise “Buy One Get One FREE” deal you’ll want to ask about (note that this is offered on Thursday and Friday only).

Sharon Young February 2016 sale

Insider Tip #3: The sale offers wonderful statement pieces and  wonderful wardrobe basics too. Be sure and look for reversible and convertible styles to stretch your wardrobe (like the fantastic blue and black poncho above that can be worn 3 different ways, providing several looks from this one piece – LOVE!).

We found lots of fabulous finds including the reversible black and white brocade poncho below AND a reversible pair of tailored knit pants (Yes ~ reversible pants!) from Sharon Young — solid black on one side and reverses to heather gray on the other — savvy travel-worthy and so comfortable too!

White & Black Sharon Young Poncho

Insider Tip #4:  There are sizes to fit and flatter just about everyone — you’ll find Petite size 2 to Women’s Plus sizes and everything in between. A special note on sizes — if you know anyone looking for fashion-forward Women’s plus sizes, be sure and bring them with you to this February sale! We saw TWO, very long rows dedicated to wonderful plus-size fashions (that’s a few thousand 0X-3X pieces from which to choose)!

Feb 2016 Sharon Young Warehouse Sale

Insider Tip #5:  Almost everything throughout the sale is grouped by collection, making it easy to find coordinating pieces  and mix-and-match a complete outfit.

Insider Tip #6:  Be sure and look for the big section of our favorite “Slim-Sation” pants and tights (you’ll find them pretty close to the center area of the sale).  Slim-sation pants have a little inside tummy smoothing panel that make you look a size smaller (yes, please!).  These have become our “go to” favorites as they are no-fuss machine washable, comfortable, and have a fantastic fit.

Pssst…Slim-sation is the same line of pants carried by a high-end travel clothing/online catalog store for almost TWICE as much as you’ll find them at this sale. We can’t reveal the name of the store, but doing a little Google search might tell you (wink-wink).

   Slim-Sation

Insider Tip #7: Look for the section of Tru Luxe jeans, crops, and casual tops –– these high-end jeans are very deeply discounted to at least 60% off retail ($40 at this sale vs. the usual $100 price tag at retail stores)! We appreciate that the Tru Luxe jeans section is organized by size, making it simple to find the right pair and fit among the many style choices.

Insider Tip #8: There are over 19,000 pieces in this sale at 50% to 75% off retail, so wear comfortable shopping shoes! You’ll find tops, skirts, pants, and jackets from boutique quality and high-end department store designers. Look for favorite designer brands like Sharon Young, Tru Luxe, Ali Miles, and Multiples ~ prices start at $20 and nothing is over $60.

I hope you have a little taste of the sale and are able to make the jog over to  Dallas to grab some great bargains, too!

Here’s the information you’ll need for the  Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Sale, in a nutshell:

Where: 10367 Brockwood Rd ~ Dallas. You’ll see yellow signs directing you where to go (or just follow all the ladies you will see!).
Important to know before going: There is a large dressing room area provided if you want to try on all your wonderful finds, but typical of women’s fashion warehouse sales, it is ladies only but not private — you likely want to keep this in mind when choosing your undergarments : ).

Up to 50% OFF Marmot Brand Clothing, Jackets, BackPacks, and More — STARTS SATURDAY

If you’ve been a reader for very long, then you might already know that we are big fans of Marmot brand athletic clothing and outdoor gear ~ REALLY great quality, but the prices are often a bit spendy at outdoor enthusiast retailers like REI and Whole Earth Provision. That’s why we want our readers to be sure and know about the Marmot sale that starts tomorrow over at LeftLane Sports. Plus, if you are new to LeftLane Sports, we’ll help you save an extra $10 on top of the sale prices.

Marmot

The Marmot sale starts at 8:30AM CST on Saturday (January 16), but until then, here is a preview of some of the Marmot deals available at LeftLane right now:

:: OUR FAVORITE DEAL: Marmot Draft 20 Backpack drops to $47.95 with $10 OFF LeftLane new member credit (retails for $89) — this is a great price! We are recreational hikers and have done a lot of research on day-packs for our personal use — this is a really well-made, top-rated pack designed to comfortably carry and protect your gear for a 1-2 day hike.  It’s a super-lightweight 20 Liter backpack with lots of storage, but easily compressible if you are carrying a lighter load. Also, definitely worth mentioning, it has a pocket to hold a water hydration sleeve like a CamelBak (purchased separately), external water bottle pocket, hiking pole attachments and a removable webbing waist belt. A rain cover is included and it’s available in multiple colors.

  

:: Marmot Women’s 1/2 Zip Pullover to $26.95 (retails for $75).   With the perfect amount of warmth and stretch, the 100 weight stretch fleece and durable flat lock construction makes the Sunspot ½ Zip an ideal piece for throw-on layering.

:: Marmot Men’s E Line Packable Jacket drops to $94.45 with $10 OFF LeftLane new member credit (retails for $175).  The wind and water-resistant technical fabric will complement your favorite pair of jeans or khakis — plus, it’s a great weight for our mild Texas winter weather. Jacket features a host of handy pockets including a media pocket and  interior zippered pocket.

:: The Marmot sale also includes a nice selection of other men’s & women’s jackets, athletic clothing & gear, backpacks, tents, and other outdoor items.  See the entire sale here.

Don’t Forget The LeftLane Sports
HOT $10 Credit Offer For New Members!

When you sign up for LeftLane Sports daily deals for the first time, you’ll receive a $10 credit to use towards any LeftLane Sports order of $50 or more ~ including their exclusive Marmot sale!  It looks like you have 6 months to use the credit before it expires, but other than that, there are no other strings attached (we love this!). Do note that the $10 credit is only offered for new account sign-ups and that it is FREE to join.

How to get the $10 OFF LeftLane Sports credit:

  1. Go here to sign up for free and get the $10 Left Lane Sports credit! Once you are signed up as a new member, a $10 credit will be waiting for you to use on your minimum $50 Purchase.
  2. Find and select the Marmot sale or sale of choice by scrolling through the discount “boutiques” listed on LeftLane Sports (look for this image).
    ..
  3. Make your purchase before Thursday. This sale goes away on Thursday (1/20/16), so you will not want to wait!  As usual with LeftLane Sports, many items do sell out quickly.

New to LeftLane Sports?  It’s a members-only (joining is free!) daily deal website featuring top endurance, outdoor, and sports brands — like Pearl Izumi, Asics, Columbia, Patagonia, and Camelbak — at typically 50-70% off retail price!  Whether you run, cycle, hike, camp, ski or swim they’ve got you covered with great daily sales.  Membership is free, and since I invited you, you’ll receive an instant $10 shopping credit towards your first purchase!   Learn more or join here free to get the $10 credit.

Enjoy and Share!  :)
