Retailers get a head start on Cyber Monday
You know that awkward moment when a sales associate asks if you need a gift receipt when you’re shopping for yourself in the months of November and December? Well, the Internet, she doesn’t judge you at check-out.
Online retailers this year aren’t holding out until Cyber Monday to start offering price cuts on apparel. Thirty percent of shoppers surveyed by ShopAtHome.com this year admitted to buying a gift for themselves this holiday season — but only if it’s on sale.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or others, here are some on-trend deals that are a mouse click away (and don’t require camping on concrete).
For the kids on your shopping list:
The ShopatHome.com survey also found that 72 percent of consumers planned to allocate most of their holiday shopping budget to kids.
Carter’s has a 50 percent-off sale going on with adorable microfleece reindeer pajamas that are ideal for opening gifts in on Christmas morning and they are marked down to $11. This ruffled dress with a bow near the neckline is on sale for $12 and this dapper fair isle sweater for boys is $17.
And, while you’re shopping at Carter’s for clothes to get kids ready for holiday pictures and parties, check out the toys that are also on sale — like this magnetic chalk board for $12 or this dinosaur stamp set for $6.
For the teenagers on your shopping list:
Puffy vests for $15 at Forever 21. They come in a rainbow of colors, ranging from classic black, navy or taupe to a bolder fuchsia, teal or red. They’ll layer great over flannels or patterned sweaters.
Aeropostale is running a 50 percent off everything sale online. Vintage Band T-shirts for guys that are each under $10 and feature Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan and RUN DMC. (Did it sting just a little bit to hear some of the bands that you were just listening to, like, the other day be referred to as vintage?)
Start building your winter wardrobe with some quality, classic pieces. Full-priced items are 40 percent off online at Ann Taylor, with the code-word “thanks.” The pearl striped tee is a winter take on a classic, with delicate pearls that dress up the shirt. With the discount, it’s $22.80. A laced-front, long-sleeved T-shirt is available in winter white, black and berry and is on sale for $28.80.
