Weekend sales: Norstrom, Old Navy, The Limited, and more!
This is when Nordstrom (briefly) discounts new, fall goodies -- from dresses to undies, hot-to-trot boots to designer bags. It's a chance to pick up tomorrow's trends before the season starts, instead of waiting to pick through the leftovers.
Even if you buy nothing, peering through the sale catalog is a good way to spot trends for the upcoming season. We're seeing a lot of repeats from last fall/winter: hues of purple, animal prints, flat boots.
O.K, the heavy sweaters, jackets and boots just make us want to sweat right now. But bargain-hunting is all about planning ahead. The Nordstrom sale is a good time to follow Mom's advice and invest in a quality piece that will last a long time. Just move fast: Prices go back up on Aug. 3.
While you're shopping, here are some other good weekend deals around town:
The Shop: One of our favorite St. Petersburg boutiques is offering 50 percent off Lucky jeans! And 20 percent off M Rena cover-up dresses. (Ends Saturday.)
Old Navy: Rewards for do-gooders. Get 10 percent off your purchase at the Tyrone Square Mall store when you donate at least two school supplies. Good through July 19.
