Sample Sales & Bargains– Just in Time for Moms, Dads, Grads & Bridal!

There are a number of sales coming up so I am going to give you the list EARLY so you can plan your weekend accordingly. Some are a bit in advance but forewarned is fore-armed and means you don’t blow out the credit card entirely
1) Coco de Mer— perfectly suited for bridal and Mother’s Day.
Don’t “think” this one too much– just go and buy. It’s a fun, saucy– even naughty– sort of selection, but everyone’s entitled to be their inner vamp from time to time (or more often than they are currently) . You want to see & buy at this sale!! It’s not to be missed.

2) For you East Coast people– here’s one that’s going on right now– so hurry before it ends on Friday. Geo Art by Cynthia Gale is having a blow-out jewelry sale. This is great contemporary jewelry that anyone would love to have. Great buys on jewelry for Moms, brides, grads, and birthdays. Maybe something for the guys? (don’t know– someone let me know)
3) LF Warehouse Sale
According to’s Suzanne O’Connor, this is one killer sale this weekend. You need to hit this one for all the bargains you can score for yourself and anyone else you need to buy a gift for. Think ahead to fall or Christmas– any reason to get you out there.
Here’s what Suzanne said:
