Blue Sale, Red Shawl

Bluefly is currently holding it’s semi-annual Blue Sale. They’re blowing out literally thousands of gorgeous, superfantastic items for men, women, and the homes they live in at bargain basement prices.

Among all the lovely offerings, I found this beautiful and cozy cashmere/silk blend ombre shawl by Kashmere.

Kashmere Ombre Dyed Shawl The color develops from a warm ivory, through pale pink, to a bright geranium pink at the edge. At 20″ x 80″ it should also keep your shoulders comfortable until the frosts hit. Heck, out here in California, we could probably wear it until Thanksgiving! No matter where you live, though, it should come in handy whenever you want a touch of warmth combined with a touch of class.

The retail value on this exquisite piece is $150.00, and Bluefly has been selling it for $85.00. Well, now Bluefly has marked it down to just $74.99. But wait! There’s more!

During the three-day “Blue Sale, you can save even more. Now until 6:30am 8/25/08, if you buy one Blue Sale item, you can get another 20% off. Better yet, get two Blue Sale items and save another 25%. Best of all, buy three or more Blue Sale items and get 30% off!

It’s a Fair Copper

Top-notch chefs agree there’s nothing like copper for perfect heat distribution on top of a stove. Copper pots and pans also look super spiffy. In fact, there’s only one downside to copper cookware: the price.

Ruffoni Copper Saute Pan Of course, a good sale changes all that. Luckily, Chef’s Catalog is having just such a sale on this fabulous Ruffoni copper saute pan. Not only does the copper distribute heat evenly while the hand-applied tin lining won’t affect the flavor of the food you’re cooking, the hand-hammered look will grace any kitchen beautifully. Rolled edges help prevent drips. Best used with olive wood or silicone utensils…and I tend to recommend the olive wood for being both sturdy and elegant.

Usually, this beauty sells for $220.00, but as I said it’s on sale. If you order now, you can get it for just $119.99. That’s a savings of $100.01! That’s a price it’s hard to beat.

Classical Beauty, Amazing Savings

There’s an amazing sale going on at Amazon. A few selected styles in their jewelry section are eligible for an astonishing extra discount at check out. So what sort of jewelry are we talking about? And what kind of savings? Take a gander at this deal:

Tagliamonte Gorgon Earrings These handsome classically-inspired earrings from Tagliamonte feature 14k rose gold, pink tourmaline, and pearls. I could stare at them for hours…in a mirror, of course, for safety’s sake.

On a normal day, these earrings would cost you $889.00. Amazon has been giving a discount of 15% for a total of just $759.99, which isn’t too bad. Through September 1, though, you can get an extra 60% off at check out! 60% off! According to my (admittedly potentially incorrect) calculations, that means you should wind up paying something in the neighborhood of $304.00. Oh, and they qualify for free shipping, as well.

Of course, there are lots of other styles to match a lot of different women in the sale. Take a look and see what you like best…then take advantage of superfantastic savings!

Suit Up, Men

Every man should own at least one suit. Weddings, funerals, job interviews, evenings at the theater, meeting the parents, applying for a loan…there are dozens of reasons to suit up like a man.

Unfortunately, even a mediocre suit can cost a lot of money. The solution for an impecunious young man? Clearance sales, of course.

Year-Round 2-Button Wool Suit This handsome year-round lightweight wool/cashmere blend two-button suit is suitable for almost any activity or occasion that calls for a man to look like a responsible adult. It comes in your choice of light olive plaid or grey plaid complete with pleated trousers, half-lined for easy alterations.

Normally, you’d expect to pay through the nose for such a good-looking suit in such good fabric, but right now you can get it at an amazing deal from Jos. A. Bank during their huge Summer Sale & Clearance Up To 70% Off. Free Shipping On Orders Over $175!. Regularly priced at $550.00, it can now be yours for a mere $88.00. Yes, you read that correctly: this suit has been marked down $462.00.

Oh, and while you’re there, check out their online sweepstakes. There’s the chance to win a $1000.00 gift card in it for you.

Smashing Citrine

Sometimes you just have to buck the tide. Right now necklaces are on the outs in the fashion world, but I say there’s always room for a really good one.

Citrine and Smoky Quartz Pendant For instance, this delicate yet slightly Bohemian citrine and smoky quartz pendant hanging from an 18″ 14k yellow gold double chain is a piece of jewelry that would always find a place in my wardrobe. One large teardrop-shaped citrine is highlighted by the seven smaller smoky quartz ones underneath. The subtle color will work nicely with nearly any shade in the rainbow, too.

One thing that might ordinarily stand in your way, though, is your bank account. The suggested retail price for this beauty is $999.00. Of course, some of us realize that’s just a suggestion. UltraDiamonds.com is one of us in that regard. They’re selling this pendant for just $199.00. That’s just about 80% off. At that price, it’s hard to go wrong!

Pretty, feminine, elegant, stylish…what more could a girl want? Oh yes, she might like a good deal.

The retail price on this lucious dress is $310.00. Actually not too bad for a pure silk dress. But why settle for not too bad when you can get amazing? Smartbargains is selling this dress for a mere $39.98! That’s 87% off the original price!

Awesome Aquamarine

I love aquamarine. It’s such a lovely stone. The subtle blue goes nicely with nearly any other color and always looks elegant. So a chance to get aquamarine earrings at a huge discount grabs my attention!

Designer Goodies, Bargain Basement Prices

I’m loving this fabulous halter top by Yaya Afalo.

Saucy Savings, Free Shipping

As many of you know, I love good cookware. So when I see an excellent piece of versatile cookware at a deep discount and then find the shipping is free…you know I’m going to share the good news.

Calphalon 5Qt Saucier With Steamer

This 5 quart, non-stick saucier pan from Calphalon comes with a handy steamer basket as well. It’s the perfect thing for making sticky treats like sushi rice and thick puddings, but it’s also great for doing a one-dish treatment of braised meat and steamed vegetables or a thick, comforting winter stew. The size and shape will make this a favorite for feeding a hungry family, and the non-stick surface makes clean up easy as pie.

Normally you’d expect to pay $235.00 for this sturdy yet handsome piece of cookware. Luckily, Cooking.com isn’t carrying it for the normal price. They’ve slashed the price tag down to just $99.99! That’s a savings of over $135.00!

But it gets better. Now through August 13, use code C97298 to get free shipping on selected orders of $99.00 or more. See site for details, but this pan does qualify.
If you want to get the savings, you’d better get cooking!

What’s 20% of Superfantastic?

Bluefly is having a 20% off sale on all their dresses right now. Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Sweet Pea, Betsey Johnson…and the list goes on for a long time. So what design caught my eye? That would bethis one by Nicole Miller:

Nicole Miller Silk Feather Dress The feather print in shades of blue and black is embossed on pique silk, and the dress is fully lined in chiffon. It sounds as light and soft as the feathers printed on it. The back is low-cut and shaped with a bit of smocking while the front is held in place by slender halter straps on a ruched U neckline. Just slip it over your head, accessorize to taste, and have a great time!

Originally this dress would have cost you $275.00. Bluefly normally sells it for just $165.00. But if you take advantage of the dress sale going on now, you can get this fabulous, filmy designer party dress for a mere $132.00, or 52% off the retail price.

Also at Bluefly, fans of Bravo’s hit series Project Runway (and I know I’m not the only one who wants to take Tim Gunn home with me) may be interested to know that Season 4 winner Christian Siriano’s new line is currently available at Bluefly for ‘up to 40% off’…though the only sales I saw were all 20% off. My verdict? Fierce, of course!
