The Best Sale of the Year
As many of you prepare to get ready for New Year’s Eve, I wanted to fill you in on one of the BEST sales of the year that starts in less than 24 hours: the Dillard’s After New Year’s Day sale!
The sale is way better than 90% of the sales I’ve seen other bloggers write about. I love the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but these deals at Dillard’s definitely top that sale in every way. And it all starts at midnight TONIGHT.
So here’s the 411: everything at Dillard’s that is currently on sale is an additional 50% off. If you go online at 12:01 a.m., and you have sale items in your cart, you’ll see the additional 50% off right after the clock strikes 12 a.m. I know, it’s exciting! This means, if you’re like me and sitting at your computer before the sale, you can put in everything you want in your cart, enter in your credit info and then be good to go. But, I’ll tell you, while there are MANY things online that caught my eye, there are some gems in the store that are definitely worth going after too.
So here’s what I suggest you buy in the store:
– Sunglasses: There are RayBans and Michael Kors sunglasses to die for and they’re going as cheap as $50 a pop during the sale on New Year’s Day.
– Luggage: I need it. It’s something you don’t think about investing in until it’s too late, but Craig and I have been traveling more and we’ve slowly realized how important it is to have nice luggage but who wants to be an adult and pay $150 for luggage? I saw some great pieces as low as $50 a pop in stores and online the pickings are slim.
– Purses: They go fast but there’s plenty of designer purses on the sale rack going for less than $200 during this sale. Once again, you won’t find much online, but in the store, there’s plenty of amazing options.
– Watches: In the store, there’s everything from Kate Spade to Michael Kors. Some of these watches will cost you less than $50 each. I’ve never seen brand new designer watches at this price, except for the Dillard’s sale.
As far as what you should put in your cart online TONIGHT:
-Shoes: Most of the shoes you’ll want in the store are totally out of stock in most sizes. Online there’s PLENTY of options and so many pairs under $70.
-Clothes: Once again, there are slim pickings in the store because people end up snagging what’s most popular. I’d definitely check the sale online if you’re looking for something in particular.
So if you plan to head to the store tomorrow, you need to know that the store opens at 9 a.m. but most people line up around 7 a.m. to get the best stuff. There’s always a bit of a line and everyone rushes in right when the doors open and most people go STRAIGHT to the sunglasses, jewelry, purses, and shoes. That said, be ready to fight the crowds.
I hope you all find some amazing finds at the sale and if you happen to see me at the Lincoln Dillard’s store in Nebraska, I’ve got the 411 on which door of the store opens first. For the rest of you, best of luck tomorrow as we start 2018, and don’t forget to shop smart with Hustle and Heart! Also p.s. check out a few items that are pictured above.
