Win the gold for utilizing Olympics-themed promotions



At least one store out there has an Olympics promotion, and, seeing as how we Divas are trapped in euphoria over the games, we approve.

Banana Republic is offering 30 percent off online-only purchases through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday. The secret check-out code is BRGOLD.

There are some exceptions to the "Go for the Gold" sale: new arrivals, the Timeless collection, men's shoes and bags, women's boots, leather...  point is, read the fine print.

This skirt, though? Fair game. You can dress it up with neutral heels and a bright blouse (color mixing!) or down with a denim shirt and funky bag (for more color mixing!).

Sales abound at other stores, though I'm a little bummed they are not also Olympics-themed. Come on, stores, get in the $pirit!

Old Navy is extending its back-to-school discounts to women's wear, which means $15 jeans and a little discount on these cap-toe flats (trend alert).


Some stuff is marked down at Anthropologie, including this adorable "Tussie Tank."


Sidenote: Anyone else help her mom craft tiny symbolic bouquets called tussie-mussies? No?

Well, I can tell you these floral gifts have been a thing since the Victorian era and may have peaked in popularity in rural north Florida in the late '90s. So, um, lock that away for trivia night and put the money you saved on a free pitcher of beer toward stocking your closet.
