Yar, Here Be Superfantastic Savings

Ralph Lauren is having a huge sale on already discounted items. For a limited time, select sale items are a further 20% off the already low, low prices. Be still, my beating heart!

That means you can get some amazing deals on designer goodies for the man, woman, child, home, or dog in your life. Just peruse the pages of the website, and you’ll find something to tickle your fancy that won’t hurt your budget.

Twistie’s choice? Well, I’m a sucker both for a good pair of cufflinks and for things piratical, so hands down this is what gets my nod:

R. Lauren Pirate Cufflinks These fun and fabulous cufflinks feature the classic skull and crossbones design favored by pirates for years on a background of your choice of black, blue, or red enamel over sterling silver for a subtle touch of rapscallionish humor.

Of course, the joke once took a serious bite out of the budget at $325.00. Since then, though, they’ve been marked down to just $199.00. Now, and for a limited time, they’re a further 20% off, which means you’ll save something in the neighborhood of another forty bucks on the price.

For that deal, I may just need to see if I can smuggle a pair to Johnny Depp. Mmmm…Johnny Depp.

It’s a Frame, I Tell You, a Frame!

I love picture frames, but all too often I hate the prices. Why? Well, because at heart I’m always looking for a bargain. Of course, as with anything else, there are items worth their full price and things that really aren’t. Speaking of things worth every penny, take a look at this.

Wallace sterling silver leaf embossed 5x7 frameThis sterling silver leaf embossed frame is from Wallace, a name synonomous with high-quality silver for decades. The handsome leaf pattern will enhance nearly any photo you put in it, too.

Of course, just because something is worth full price doesn’t mean you need to pay it. In fact, I recommend that you go to Bluefly where you can get it for a pittance of the original price.

See, the retail value is $270.00. Bluefly usually carries it for $162.00. Then they reduced it to just $137.90. Now, though, in their Bluefly, the price has been slashed to a mere $117.29! That’s 59% off the original price!

In fact, now it’s worth every penny and then some.

Brace Yourselves for This One

Regular readers know how much I love a good bracelet. There are few fashion accessories I love so much. Regular readers also know that I have a bit of a love affair with sterling silver. Combine the two with great design and, well, you know I’m going to fall hard.

Lois Hill Sterling Silver Cuff Bracelet This beauty is by Lois Hill. It’s hammered silver in a gloriously Baroque pattern of scrolls. Really, just look at it. It speaks for itself.

What does it say? It says: ‘I’m a hell of a deal right now at Nordstrom!’

That’s right, it’s a superfantastic deal. The original price was a whopping $598.00, but if you get it now you’ll save 60% and pay only $237.90!

34 Is Your Lucky Number

Why? Because that’s how many carats of sapphires there are in this spectacular bracelet.

34 ctw Sapphire and Sterling Silver Bracelet They’re arranged in three rows set in always superfantastic sterling silver. Really, a piece like this speaks for itself. What does it say? Pure class.

Oh, it also says ‘smart shopper.’ Why? Because you’re going to get it from UltraDiamonds.com. The suggested retail price may be $799.00, but at Ultra Diamonds it’s just $199.00!

I sparkle just a little brighter knowing that.

Oh, and even better than that, there’s the fact that you can get a further 20% off by using the discount code E2EV.

Friday Finds Under Fifty: The Silver and Gold Edition

I love the Shine of silver and the glitter of gold. These two lovely metallics add charm to any item and class to nearly any ocassion. Alas, they can easily empty your wallet. Here are a few shimmering goodies to brighten your world without breaking the bank.

Sterling Silver Byzantine Bracelet This 7.5″ Byzantine link sterling silver bracelet looks both graceful and fun on nearly any wrist. So pretty, so timeless…and in this case, so inexpensive. The suggested retail price on it is $200.00, but you can get it from Amazon right now for the pittance of $45.95! That’s more than $150.00 off!
