The weekend in-store community post

Friday, January 31, 2014


I have noticed a lot of community members sharing in-store deals and spots in the comments of various posts. Inspired by the weekly Seek & Find posts started by the lovely Alexis over at J.Crew Aficionada, I think now is a good time to start a similar weekly post here.

Popbacks go very quickly but hopefully by having them in one place will be helpful. Please do not use this post for store sightings.

Reviews: Laurelwood Boatneck, Darby Peplum Top, Fluttered Dot Peplum Top, Shimmerwing Top, Eira Top

After a few weeks off I'm dusting off the ol' reviews tag and sharing my thoughts on some of Anthropologie's current tops assortment. What worked? What didn't? Come on inside and find out.


Eye Candy: Anthropologie February 2014 Catalogue

Monday, January 27, 2014


The new Anthropologie lookbook is available to view! February finds Anthro in Vietnam (more on their official blog here) and slowly transitioning to spring. Looks like Spring will be heavy on pattern and structure -- yay! Although as is par for the course not a lot is tempting me in these shots...I'm starting to make the rounds for reviews again so I'm eager to see what these items look like in real life.

What's landed on your wishlist from this month's catalogue?

Playing the Sale Guessing Game

Anthropologie had a clothing sale last week that included fresh cuts and 2nd/3rd/etc cuts. Will this week bring more of the same? There's only one way to find out! Let's play the Sale Guessing Game and see what happens.

{Weekly} EA Community Anthro reviews!

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Anthropologie's Ottoman Poppies Tank from 2011.

NOTE: I'm currently in Costa Rica celebrating my birthday today!! While on this trip I have zero internet access. I have a few colleagues and friends checking up on the blog for me but if there is a sale this week there will be no sale list. It's a bit of a lurch I know and not ideal, but there is no way around it. Instead, there will be an open thread on Monday and Tuesday (since I'm not sure if or when the sale will be) with an affiliate link to the fresh cuts and the comments can be used for sale discussion.

You may link to other blogs in this post!!! Links to Anthropologie pages are also totally cool. Use the "report" button for any spam/inappropriate/offensive comments. EA will be back up to full posting speed the week of January 26th.

Tuesday Open Discussion Thread

Is there an Anthropologie sale today? If so, check out all the fresh cuts here. (Anthropologie updates its sale page around 9 AM ET.) EA's sale list will be back with the next sale!!!


No sale today? OK, here's some discussion fodder.

How often do you visit Anthropologie's website? In the fall and December I feel like I visit about 3-4 times a day. From January to March it's more like once a day or maybe even once every couple of days. In the spring and summer it's about once to twice a day. Which season do you find yourself on Anthro's site more or less? Or are your site habits tied more to sale or new arrivals? I'm curious what your habits revolve around.

No sale today? OK, here's a topic I've been curious about. 

Each year how much of your closet do you replace? Right after college, I felt like I was replacing my entire closet each year as my income power and job title changed. Last year I replaced a lot again because of weight loss and now this year I'm looking to change out less than 10% of my clothing. How about you?

It's not necessary to stick to this topic -- feel free to use the comments for all things Anthropologie! Questions, etc.

Last week Anthropologie had a home sale. With the long holiday weekend in the USA for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, will sale come tomorrow, wait til Tuesday or take the week off entirely?

The Revelations Knit Dress ($128), one of the newest Anthropologie arrivals
to land on my wishlist.

From resortwear to early signs of Spring, Anthropologie is slowly unveiling new arrivals as January progresses. What's their theme for Spring? Madness, it just might be.

Get cozy with Anthropologie's latest round of home SALE!!!

Monday, January 13, 2014


There are no new clothing markdowns this week at Anthropologie but the home section has some fresh cuts! Several sofas are now on sale, plus artwork, select kitchen/dining items and some bedding. No candles and such to speak of this time around. Though holiday trim is still 50% off it looks as though the extra 50% off home sale items has ended. And alas the Altair Tent remains stubbornly full price.

Anthropologie's Fresh Cuts sale page usually updates around 9 AM ET. Inside, the list of home cuts!

Surprise! Although I thought there was no sale coming today, the community was on top of things anyway as it turns out this morning did bring fresh markdowns to Anthropologie's site! Inside, as many of the newest sale items as I could get listed before work.

This just in -- Anthro's home sale is now an extra 50% off!!

Thursday, January 2, 2014


Whoa! This is pretty huge. Now through, well, we don't know when, all Anthropologie home sale items are an extra 50% off! Furniture and lighting remains 25% off, though all other home sale categories are included. The bad news is that the online selection is seriously dwindling although I expect popbacks to continue coming, so keep checking!

Use the code WARMUP at checkout. The 25% off all sale clothing, shoes & accessories continues using the same code.

Will you take advantage of this spectacular deal? Here are a few of my picks, based on availability at the time of this posting: the white rabbit cookie jar (now $50), the Notched Vines Dining Table (now $1,500), the lion plush wooly, and the His & Hers Retro Bicycles (models, now $70). All prices listed are before the 25% & 50% off.

Here's the fine print:
Enjoy an extra 50% off select sale home merchandise and 25% off sale clothing, shoes, accessories, furniture and lighting online and in US and Canada stores for a limited time. Enter code WARMUP at checkout. These offers do not apply to full-price merchandise, holiday trim or previously placed orders, and cannot be combined with any other discounts.
