Thursday, March 9, 2017

Run, don't walk to your nearest Banana Republic for a really sweet deal.

Have you checked out Banana Republic lately? If not, now is a really good time to because it's Friends & Family time! This deal is amazing too -- take 50% off up to 5 items!!! Use the code BRFAMILY.

Want to know how to save an additional 10%? That information awaits inside, along with a ton of suggestions on what to pick as your 5 50% off items...


Cute outfits await!

Banana Republic is struggling to come back from rampant quality issues and designs that didn't resonate with customers. Recently I've been delighted by some of their new releases -- especially in their BR Classic section.

If you're a BR cardholder you may want to dust off that card -- cardholders get an extra 10% off right now with the code BRCARD.

With such a great promo, what should one get? Remember that up to 5 of these items can be 50% off! I've got tons of good ideas:
1 | The Merino Scallop Crew Pullover ($68) is a perfect transitional piece. I own it in three colors now (the light blue, navy and neon pink). They're great layering pieces that wash well!
2 | A similarly lovely piece is the Merino Vee Pullover ($78) which I want in the new stem green color. I adore the cuff button accents.
3 | The Merino Ribbed Pointelle Cardigan ($78) is another wool winner. I'm partial to that light pastel yellow color.
4 | Merino also does Spring! By way of the cute Merino Sweater Tank ($48).
5 | Looking for a suit that's on-trend? I can't help but love this blue camo One Button Blazer ($198)...
6 | ...which has matching pants! You can down down the camo feel by pairing it with a sleek cami.
7 | Another piece I love for the work is the Sateen Crossover Pencil Skirt ($78), which would pair well with so many blouse colors.
8 | I'm a fan of the Milano Sweater Skirt ($78) too, especially the green.
9 | The Diamond Eyelet Midi Skirt ($128) is nearly sold out but I expect it will pop back (and may be stocked in your local store).
10 | The High-Waisted Lightweight Wool Pencil Skirt ($98) is easy to wear, a great material and doesn't cut into my belly.
11 | BR also has tons of cute pants right now. Let's start with the Ryan-Fit Floral Sateen Pant ($98)!
12 | I wouldn't expect BR to be the ones to nail this but they got the Avery-Fit Tie Stripe Pant ($98) just right.
13 | The Avery-Fit Dot Jacquard Crop ($98) are cut perfectly at the bottom whether you're short or tall. But they are narrow through the hips so curvy girls like me will want to size up!
14 | A more universally flattering pant is the Sloan-Fit Skinny Ankle Floral Pant ($98).
15 | They may be too high rise for shorter gals, but I love love my Zero Gravity Gray High-Rise Skinny Jean ($98).
16 | The Stay White Fray Cuff Girlfriend Jean ($98) run at least a size smaller than most BR jeans, but finding the right fit is worth it for this pair of thick, white denim!
17 | I reject most wide legs yet the Heritage Wide-Leg Crop Pant ($120) are very appealing to me.
18 | My love of all things gingham continues with the Easy Care Gingham Cami ($50).
19 | Cute eyelet pindots and a J.Crew-circa-2008 feel make me love the Riley-Fit Sleeveless Dot Print Ruffle Shirt ($68)! I found this top to run super narrow through the hips, pushing me all the way up from a 6 to a 10!
20 | A subtle ruffle placket and layering prowess make the Riley-Fit Asymmetrical Ruffle Placket Shirt ($68) a better than usual oxford shirt.
21 | Scallops made an appearance in sweaters in item #1 of this list and now they're back on the lovely Riley-Fit Stripe Scallop Shirt ($68).
22 | Hourglasses rejoice at the Short-Sleeve Ruffle Wrap Top ($78)!
23 | Dark colors and an oversized yoke ruffle lend the Floral Embroidered Flutter Blouse ($88) a dramatic vibe.
24 | The Plaid A-line Slip Dress ($148) is the kind of ultra-flattering dress every girl needs in her closet.
25 | The Geo Lace Dress ($138) takes one pattern and makes it look like at least 4 cohesively thanks to shadow, bias and a beautifully defined waist.
26 | Pink or yellow? How about both colors of the Easy Care Ruched-Yoke Top ($78)?
27 | I just adore the collar of the Pleated Hem Button Up Top ($88).
28 | The Paillette Embellished Top ($68) has a very Audrey Hepburn vibe to me. I like it!!
29 | Colors and shine combine in the Easy Care Crepe Vee Cami ($50). Oh that yellow!
30 | Ruffles on jackets? Yes please!!
