Stock up at summer sales
Somewhere, in a land far from Florida, people are thinking about cooler days ahead. And retailers are shifting their display windows to the season officially known as pre-fall.
Whatevs. It's going to be hot as all heck here for another three months. So we can take advantage of these so-called summer sales. It's time to stock up on deeply discounted white shirts and lightweight skirts, khaki slacks and capris. But steer clear of too many tropical colors. Some wear them year-round in Florida, but I find many pastels tiring after Labor Day.
Here's some weekend sales to replenish your closet:
The Limited: 40 percent off everything until Sunday.
J.Crew: Extra 40 percent off final sale (online only.)
Macy's: Coupons on pg. 16A of today's st. Petersburg Times are good for an extra 20 to 15 percent off most sales items.
Dillard's: Women's summer dresses from Adrianna Papell, Calvin Klein and London Times for $49.99. (Originally $80 to $158.)
