Dress Well Spend Well

One of the simple ways to save money on clothing is to sign up for the email updates from your favorite stores. I love knowing that I can get the same great dress for an on sale price!

Store that include email updates:

J. Crew
Gap, Inc. and all of their companies
Ann Taylor
Ann Taylor Loft
Anthropologie
(some of my favs – I receive email updates from all of these stores)

This week, Ann Taylor Loft has started their Fall Sale – up to 60% off!
I saw a great tulip skirt in October 09’s Real Simple from Ann Taylor Loft and now that it’s on sale, my Tuesday To Do List is expanded. I am going to the mall today!

It’s so simple
*Choose your favorite stores – you know them already!
*Find them online and go to their website
*Search for their online updates signup block – When my friend Sarah searched for gap.com’s sign up box, it’s farther down on the rightish hand side – sort of hard to see if you ask us!
* Some of the websites ask you for the clothing that you are interested in and create a personal mini profile
* Enjoy receiving your retail updates and saving money!

EXTRA TIP: I like to get both the new items emails and the sale emails. I only look (I do not go try the clothes on) through the new items emails and decide what I think will just be wonderful for me to buy WHEN IT’S ON SALE. Once I receive the season’s sale email, I am so excited! I try to shop the sale the first day so that there is big selection and my sizes will be available.

So, start your simply savings on this season’s clothes!

[I will let you know how it goes at Ann Taylor Loft today {on twitter}.]

updateI also bought a wedding present at Pottery Barn (they distribute emails too). Instead of paying 50 dollars, it was only twenty five! I purchased the same great glass serveware for HALF the cost!
