Frugal Friday: Fall Fashions

iStock_000019103884SmallSeptember is a great time to clean out your closet — we’re transitioning into cooler temperatures (I’m pretending it’s not 82 degrees in New York as I type this, and upwards of 90 in other parts of the country…) and that means shifting our wardrobes around at least a bit. As you cycle things in and out, you’ll likely find things you never wore, which can be tossed in a donation pile. But you may also find things from last fall and winter that have seen better days. They don’t necessarily need to be replaced — Jean spent an entire month wearing only six items, after all — but if your favorite sweater has a hole in it, or your boots are scuffed beyond repair, you may be on the lookout for a few fresh pieces for your closet. Here, where to score a deal this weekend:

J. Crew. Through Monday, get 25% off select shirts, sweaters and pants. The sale is both in stores and online, with the coupon code FALLSTYLE.

Eddie Bauer. Receive 25% off your purchase when you buy pants or jeans — men’s or women’s — plus free shipping on orders of $99 or more. The code, COTTON, is good through 9/22.

A Pea in the Pod. Pregnant? That doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of fall fashion. This maternity retailer is offering two deals: Buy a sweater, get the second sweater 50% off, and buy any three bottoms and get the fourth bottom free. Are we suggesting you need three new pairs of pants? No. But if you are in need of stocking up — say, freshening your work wardrobe to keep pace with your growing belly — it’s not a bad way to do it.

Famous Footwear.  Buy one pair, get the second pair half off. The deal is good on styles for men, women and kids.

Old Navy. The store is already reasonably priced, at least compared to its sister stores Gap and Banana Republic, but through 9/18, get 20% off with the code ONTREAT. The offer is online only and not valid in stores.

Loft. 30% off everything, including new items for fall, with the code EVERYTHING. The deal is through tomorrow only, and good in stores as well.
