If there’s any time of year to find a great deal on a purse, designer or not, this is the time of year to do it. What a sentimental country we are, honoring our veterans with… retail sales. Yes, I’m being facetious, but hey, when in Rome! But seriously, thank you to all service men & women, that deserve thanks year round, for fighting for the rest of our freedom. We are lucky duckies. Now, on to some sales.
Bloomingdales Big Brown Bag Sale (ends 5/27)
Our pick – Kate Spade New York Satchel Grove Court Maise – $243.60 ($348)
No, the bag you buy does not have to be brown. It can be full of bright color, like our pick from Kate Spade above. Also available in a green and navy combo, this stylish leather satchel features double top handles and a shoulder strap. It has a zip closure, one interior zip side pocket and two interior slip pockets. A perfect size purse if you don’t carry a lot, of if you’re trying to cut down on what you do.
Last Call Memorial Day Sale (ends 5/28)
Our pick – Kelsi Dagger Izzy Diagonal Zip Hobo – $157.50 ($298)
This roomy hobo from Kelsi Dagger also comes in “Poppy” red. The simple, geometric lines of this bag won’t steal the show, but the bright colors it’s offered in just might. At 16 inches deep, it will fit many a necessary thing. Just don’t loose your keys down at the bottom, you might never find them! The leather is pebbled, hardware golden, and the shoulder strap adjusts up to an 8″ drop.
Our pick – Colorblock Sweater Tote – $19.95 ($32)
What a fun tote by Hansel from Basel! The black and white chevron weave is really chic, but the price on this tote makes it an everyday go to. Throw in a good book or your Kindle, a snack, and head to a local park for some down time. Or use it as a shopping bag (not food, think clothes or other goods that won’t muck it up). It can even fit a small laptop, or a tablet.
Banana Republic code BRDIVEIN for %35 off (Ends 5/27)
Our pick – Gia Convertible Crossbody – $97.50 ($150)
This is a great looking crossbody bag, with very mixed reviews. I think the main problem is the strap is not adjustable, so if it feels too short on your body, you’re out of luck. We have one on the way for a full review. And remember, with BR, you can return products in store. So if you get it (BTW, it qualifies for free shipping), and you’re not in love, just take it to your local store for a full refund. This leather crossbody is available in four colors with matte goldtone hardware. Can be worn crossbody, as a shoulder bag, or even be carried as a clutch.
Amazon Memorial Day Event (ends ?)
If bows ain’t your thing, this ain’t your purse. But if you love bows, and many girls do, how freaking cute is this little bag? And little is relative, it’s about a 10″ square, so will easily hold your wallet, phone, and small cosmetics. The mint and raspberry options are on sale for $268.65. The brown is going full price. The strap on the bag can adjust out to a longer length by taking the bow wrap off.
Any great sales you’ve run across? Leave them in the comments. Happy Shopping, and enjoy the long weekend if you have it off!
