Preppy Deals & Discounts

I completely had a another creative fall decorating post planned for today, but lets get real. Sales and shopping and great deals and discounts are just much more important, no? Especially when there’s pink and green involved. Now, include stationary in the mix and well, you’ve got yourself one fun filled day of online shopping! And this week I have certainly been doing more than my faitr share of online shopping so just to make sure I’m not the only one getting into some trouble at home, I’m passing the buck onto you too.

The Palm Gifts
Rebecca has been gracious enough to extend a discount to all monogram momma readers for the entire month of October. Woo Hoo! Get your holiday shopping list in gear today and head on over to see all the cute little preppy purchases you can pick up. Just put MONOGRAM MOMMA in the optional instructions field at checkout to receive 10% off your entire order. Thanks, Rebecca!

Fine Stationary
Yes I know we all love this site. And you all know I have a slight obsession with stationary anyway that is probably going to require an intervention or 12-step program here pretty soon. But until they haul me away to a treatment facility and strip me of all my stationary, paper, and invitations, I’ll be hoarding all the sweet deals over at Fine Stationary like it was my last day on earth. Just as an example, you can currently receive 10% off select Boatman Geller Holiday items, and free printed return address on Holiday cards from select companies such as Robin McGuire & Sweet Pea Designs. All in all, there are twelve great discounts and promo’s to be had to take advantage of it now before you too, are put away in a little padded room with a sign bearing “No Stationary Allowed Beyond This Point” posted at the front door. P.S. sit tight on the holiday cards as this is a very long post and entry that will be coming after Halloween.

Hand Picked
If you are just now joining us, you might not know what Hand Picked is. But if you’re a return guest over here at monogram momma’s, you’ll know that I adore this company. They have nice quality silver gifts and accessories at truly unbelievable prices. Okay, so they’re not solid sterling, and yes, I’m girl who is a tad picky about my sterling (quel surprise). That being said, I’ve been completely satisfied with everything I’ve ever bought from this company and I’ve been buying gifts from them for years. Anyway, right now they are offering 15% off ALL monogram jewelry and gifts with FREE monogramming on most items. I just purchased a silver monogrammed bookmark yesterday, that ended up being $16 including shipping! Tell me you don’t love that? And hello? How cute is this little pink leather flask, too? Internet prices will reflect the discount so go on and have a look around and start thinking ahead to the holidays.

So I’ve never mentioned Babystyle before but the truth is, I’ve been buying from them since I was pregnant with my first mini monogram (5 years now) and I can not recommend the quality and softness of their items enough. Their Babystyle brand of casual cotton separates and rompers is truly my favorite run-around-play clothes as I just do not do the whole sweat pant look for my kids. I know, you’re shocked. But seriously, their kids cotton separates are not to be beat and they get softer with every wash. Right now you can get free shipping on orders over $100 when you enter the coupon code EASYFREE at check out. Also, for a limited time only, buy ANY toy and receive $20 off their famous slam-proof toy chest by using the coupon code TOPTOYS at checkout. Still looking for more? Well click here and you can check out their must-have maternity wear at up to 75% off for all of you expecting moms!

A. Tierney
Another preppy proprietor near and dear to my heart, A. Tierney is offering FREE SHIPPING through 10/13 when you place your orders online. So you might want to run over there quickly before this one expires, and make sure you check out the new leather headbands and bracelets. Use promo code FALL06 at checkout to receive your free shipping. Last one there’s a rotten egg!

J. Crew/Crewcuts
Yeah Yeah Yeah. This one expires tomorrow too and while I did my shopping a little earlier in the week, but I will say I hopped on again this morning and noticed they have added a few more things to their Fall sale in the Crewcuts department because my guess is they are completely selling out. Anyway, right now they are offering an additional 20% off all sale items PLUS an ADDITIONAL 40% off all Crewcuts sale item. Honestly folks, they are practically giving this stuff away! I mean, check out these embroidered mallard duck chino’s I picked up for the boys!

Nine West
Is it me or are have they gotten awfully proud of their shoes lately? And by proud, make no mistake, I do mean pricey. Lucky for you, I received this coupon for 20% off any regular priced item and also 15% any sale item. Click on the picture to enlarge it, print it up, and take it with you into the store. Everyone thank Ashley for this one! Thanks, Ashley! P.S. If it still isn’t large enough to print out, email me at monogrammomma@charter.net and I’ll fwd it to you.

Old Navy
I think it was well established during the “Show me yours, I’ll show you mine” preppy puppy competition that we all have some well loved and well dressed preppy puppies. So when I ran into Old Navy yesterday to pick up some cute argyle socks for myself, I noticed that all the adorable dog stuff was on sale for the bargain prices of $4 and $8. I mean, the cute pink corduroy jacket with a sherpa lining and collar that I picked up for $20 for my preppy puppy two weeks ago is now only $7.99. The online selection is very slim so you may want to run into your local store. My store had a huge selection left of tons of different jackets and polos that aren’t being shown online. But if you do buy online, don’t forget that famous $5 shipping!

RitaVille Designs
So it’s not a discount per say, but these are SUCH affordable and well-made grosgrain dog collars and belts and key fobs that I wanted to pass them along to you. Michelle is the owner and she has done a collar for me and it’s so well made and sturdy. As an added plus, she even puts reflectors on the collars. Now, the online selection is a little low right now, but if you email her directly and tell her what you’re looking for, she is super accommodating and will be happy to help you. She did not have online what I was looking for (a pink and green grosgrain tennis raquet motif) but she made one and sent it in the mail to me right away. She is also working on some new holiday designs and is going to email me pictures when they’re done, so I’ll pass those along as well.
