i love love love this store. this store is the reason i do not pay retail for denim. joe's jeans for $35!
i got a $400 (retail) bill blass bag that loehmann's was selling for $300 for $80. I resisted buying it for weeeeks even when it was 30% off. But then i went when they had the 50% coupon, i got 30% off and then 50% off. the saleslady was shocked. she was like I wish I got discounts like that.
They have some armani shorts that I have been eying for awhile. I hope they become 75% off sometime. They were originally $1000 and Loehamann's has them now for 30% off $200. but since I don't neeed neeed them, I will wait it out.
on clearance, i spotted d&g intimates, wacoal bras, more free people and we the free dresses and tops, lots of max studio items, lots of cashmere basics, AA high waisted skirt/dress (you know the 1 where you can wear it either way), a lot of michael stars tees, michael kors winter coats ($50), a few velour juicy couture hoodies for $25, michael kors leather wallets ($15), juicy gloves/scarves/hats, etc.
for regular price, they had free people spring tops, bb dakota, MBMJ, vince, a lot of walter dresses, romeo & juliet couture tops, juicy bikinis, coach wristlets for $60, juicy velour bags, lots of lesportsac bags, and a lot of other cute spring stuff.
stopped by loehmanns yesterday but nothing really caught my eye. they did have a few mbmj bags but they were still over $300 so i wouldn't say it was a bargain (till it gets marked down). also had mbmj wallets, key holders, purple quilted nylon bag ($99), and jewelry (bangles, earrings, necklaces).
saw lots of premium denim for $99 and some racks of free people clothes for spring/summer. there were a couple of leather coach bags and leather wristlets locked up. and i saw a few lamb bags and lots of lesportsac, and there were a few juicy velour bags on clearance.
I bought my mom a $60 Pucci scarf there the other week for her birthday. Not bad! Love Loehmann's. So much better than C21.
I completely agree! C21 is always a madhouse and a mess. Part of the thrill for me is the hunt and scoring a serious bargain, but every time I go into C21, I leave about half an hour later with nothing. It's overwhelming in there!
I got a cute free people top at Loehmann's yesterday for $12 (full retail $78). Then this morning I saw that I had a 20% off coupon I could have used that I'd forgotten about. Thankfully 20% of this purchase isn't much....but I'm still mad at myself for not checking my coupons before shopping.
a week or 2 ago, they started another clearance sale where you take an additional % off of the already marked down price. but i've noticed that lately they've been sending out a lot of coupons for like 20% off of your purchase or $50 off a $200 purchase...deals like that.
and i think for black friday, they give out coupons for 20% off.
i suppose their next big sale though will be in a couple of months when they need to make room for spring arrivals. at the end of the season, they may do their $1, $5, $10, etc. sale. those are great!
