Winter Coat Sale Alert! Lord & Taylor

So I had a little time to kill between leaving work and going to watch America's Next Top Model with friends (and I needed some tights), so I decided to pop into Lord & Taylor:


Of course I went there to get one thing, but I almost couldn't help but take a look at the winter coats on the 6th floor.

I couldn't take any pictures in there, but y'all, there were some great coats on sale!

L & T had all the best brands...if you look at their website, you'd think that they only have Calvin Klein, DKNY, etc, but I saw Cinzia Rocca, Via Spiga, Steve by Searle, Paul & Jo, Laundry by Shelli Segal, and other top of the line brands.

They had 30% off puffy coats like this $130 one by Kenneth Cole:


and this $200 one by Marc NY:



They also had 30% off wool coats like this $250 by Calvin Klein


and this $250 one by DKNY:

as well as coats by Jones New York, and Larry Levine on sale (unfortch Cinzia Rocca, Via Spiga, etc were mostly full price).

Bonus: when I went to check out, I saw they were giving away coupons (valid until Nov. 7th) that took $50 off purchases of $200 or more, and $20 off purchases of $100 or more.

Of course, as is my way, I fell in love with this $560 coat by BCBG Max Azria:

And, of course, on top of not being on sale (and almost $600), it's exempt from the coupon. Woe is me.

BUT the great thing about Lord & Taylor: They have sales all the time, and coupons are easy to come by if you sign up on their website. Also, young ladies, L&T carries all the brands that we know and love (Nanette Lepore, Theory, French Connection), but I swear, you never see twenty somethings in there. The older women know what's up...but that means that there's always lots of designer stuff leftover, usually at deep discounts. I learned my lesson when I bought an impossible to find $400 Nicole Miller dress there for $150 this past summer.

Check it out!

Sign up on their mailing list at www.lordandtaylor.com or visit their location at 424 5th Avenue and 39th street. It's gonna be chilly before you know it (my Northeast girls are already feeling the cold, I'm sure).

Smootches!

Thanks for the info. In Michigan, Lord & Taylor's are closing so many stores, people just forget they exist.

Girl, do you know that my sweet, sweet grandmother gave me a gift certificate to Lord & Taylor EVERY single Christmas until I finally had to break her heart and tell her I don't shop there. That was about five years ago. I would get these gift certificates as a teenager and I'd end up spending the money seven months later when I FINALLY found a pair of tights or a purse or a scarf or something random that fit into my teenaged wardrobe. I don't know, I always think of L&T as a grown lady store. But since I haven't been as an actual grown lady, you might have convinced me to return. Grandma would probably go into shock if I asked for a gift certificate to L&T this year. But as a new New Yorker I could definitely use some coats!!

I love Lord & Taylor! They have some great designer clothes and unlike other department stores, they allow you to use the coupons on most designer stuff. I usually get all of my BCBG shoes from there at a discount! Even though this year I will probably have to get an ugly maternity coat, I still love that BCBG coat. Its expensive but it seems like a good investment.
