Banana Republic - a good deal

Banana Republic's classic trench is available in black & khaki. The original price was $198 and it's on sale for $119.99. Use BRSALE30 for an additional 30% off thru Thu, 12/29. This trench runs in regular, petite & tall sizes.

Size PS that I bought in March 2010. I'm not sure if there are differences to the 2011 version.

Same coat in my 2nd trimester. I paid $120 with a 40% coupon and have gotten so much wear out of it.

I haven't been into or "into" BR for quite some time. I still look online, though. Not much catching my eye except these shoes...

And this headband, which reviewers say runs small.
sparkling leaf headband ($19.99)

I've been looking at the Lyla tee dress for awhile now. It's $44.99, which very attractive w/an additional 30% off of that price. I know I have a ton of stripes, though, so I'll just look from afar. Even if it's on the thin side, it's still very cute. I'm not sure stripes could ever disappoint me.

My post-Christmas strategy was to wait it out a day or two. Let the returns come in and then visit the stores. I want to visit Anthro for their 50% off sale. And that's probably about it. There's nothing I particularly want or need. Did you go out yesterday? And/or, how was your Boxing Day?

Thanks for stopping by...

p.s. I'm guess blogging today...over on

  1. I always find BR product shots to be unflattering. That trench looks so much more attractive on you than on that model.

  2. I'm eyeing that striped tee dress, I've already got spring fever!

  3. super cute trench coat!! i love BR!!

  4. I actually picked up a merino-blend cardigan for like $20 at the Forum Shops at Caesars LV location on Christmas Day... they were doing an extra 40% off sale merch in-store that day.

    I'm not sure what the current in-store promo is, but it might be worth checking out if you happen to be nearby -- there were some decent basics at really good prices available on the 25th.

  5. BR was the only "must shop" for me on boxing day. 50% off already marked down items was too good to resist, and VOILA! I snagged 2 pairs of fully lined dress pants for under $80! Pays to be patient. I, too, am waiting for the post-xmas returns to make it onto the racks/online. JC's suppose to get an update this Thursday, the sale section should be bulging by then. Thanks for the post, you look so cute with your babybump in that trench ;)

  6. Love the trench on you - card holders can stack codes and also use BREXTRA for another 20% off that price on the trench, plus free shipping, so it comes to about $72 with tax. Thanks for the info Gigi.

  7. Thanks for visiting, everyone! The addtl info & tips are super cool. I forgot that stacking sometimes works, so thanks for that, Kerrie. I was going to go to the mall on Tue and passed. I hit up Anthro for a final looksie and that was it. Could I really, truly be shopped out? *lol*
