In such a stinky economy, retailers are trying to make money however they can.
Now Ashely Stewart Stores has indicated that they will host a special “Celebrating History” event on Monday, January 19, 2009.
Ashley Stewart will mark Prez-elect Obama’s inauguration by
- offering customers a 15% discount off of their entire purchase
- providing customers with “Yes We Can” t-shirts for $10.00 at all 218 locations.
- providing music and entertainment in stores and light refreshments at select locations in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Chicago, DC/Baltimore, and Maryland,
- distributing “Yes We Can” pins as a free gift with purchase for customers shopping in stores on that day
Go on into Ashley Stewart and get some free stuff.
The retailer will also be donating 5% of proceeds from the day’s sales to a scholarship fund for students at Howard University (my alma mater!!!) in Washington, DC.
Now that economy is on the fritz, I get the feeling lots of fashionistas will be swallowing their pride.
For some it might mean average department stores instead of Saks or Barneys.
For others, it might mean Target (It’s not bad enough for us to consider Wal-Mart for fashion finds yet. Touch wood).
So you might be pleased to see Target’s newest unveiling of their Go International collection.
Not bad style-wise and definitely easier on the pocket.
Multi-color drape skirt – 27.99
Multi-color bandage dress – 44.99
Today’s a great day for shopping.
And there’s one popular question on the top of many readers’ minds.
Is H&M having a sale today?
And the answer is….no.
The clothing retailer known for its deep discounts hasn’t isssued a sale announcement for today.
Their big promo holiday savings event was December 23 with 20% off H&M family and friends.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard reports that Victoria’s Secret bras are toxic.
They’ve been several media stories and online posts claiming the store’s underwear contains formaldehyde.
However, the retailer has issued a “rumor control” statement denying the whole thing.
Victoria’s Secret does not add formaldehyde to its bras, and multiple, independent tests confirm that Victoria’s Secret bras are formaldehyde-free or contain only traces which are significantly lower than allowed by the most stringent textile guidelines in the world. Dermatologists and various authorities all confirm that even those individuals who are allergic to formaldehyde would not have a reaction at this low level, despite public claims by a Cleveland law firm.
Call me a cynic but I’m still not completely convinced.
Could they have launched their buy-one-bra-get-the-other-50%-off offer simply to get rid of the tainted bras?
Lucky Brand is spreading some serious holiday cheer.
The company is giving customers access to easy discounts through its new online promotion. Read More »
