Stylish Holiday Gifts!

gift 4

Over the years, some of my favorite holiday gifts have fallen under the apparel category – cozy sweaters, cute blouses, trendy skirts. But it’s not just us girls who love new clothes – guys like to look sharp, too. During the holiday season, our merchants have some great offers on apparel for both men and women. And if you shop with us, you’ll earn money for your school!

Check out Eddie Bauer. They’re offering free shipping on all orders over $49 when you shop before December 19. And they’ve got some fantastic items, like men’s wrinkle-free dress shirts. I have an uncle who swears by these shirts. Their fancy anti-wrinkle technology keeps them looking freshly pressed even when you stuff them into your duffel or dig them out from the back of your closet.

And take a look at Eddie Bauer’s parkas for women. They come in several different styles and colors, so you can pick the one that’s just right for the fashionista on your list. With fleece-lined collars and pockets and goose down insulation, these parkas are both functional and stylish.

Head on over to Nordstrom for more great deals on apparel. Take advantage of their Designer Sale and save up to 40% on items from designers like Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta and Dolce & Gabbana. You’ll find impressive savings on hot products like the classic and versatile Samantha Skinny Tropical Wool Pants from Michael Kors. Their lightweight wool is great for winter, spring or fall and their tailored fit is both trendy and professional.

It’s not always easy to find great gifts, but we’ve got you covered! Shop with our merchants and find stylish apparel that’s perfect for everyone on your list.

Looking for last-minute gift ideas? If you’ve got a lady on your list, I’m willing to bet she loves stylish shoes. Shop with Shoes.com before December 31 and get 10% off your entire order plus free shipping. And a percentage of your purchase will go directly to your school!

Ballet flats are the trend that just won’t die – they’re popular year after year. And why not, they’re fashionable and comfy! At Shoes.com, you’ll find savings on flats like the Women’s Fulton Moc from Michael Kors. They’re definitely a staple of any fashionista’s wardrobe.

A great pair of boots can really pull together a winter outfit – and UGG Australia is the undisputed king of boots. These boots are as cozy as house slippers but they look great with more than PJ’s. Check out styles like the Ugg Women’s Classic Tall Boot. They go with jeans or skirts and the fleece lining keeps toes toasty while absorbing moisture.

If you’re looking for something sparkly, check out the Women’s Devin pump from Jessica Simpson. All-over sequins make these shoes the perfect addition to a dressy New Year’s ensemble and a platform toe makes them easier on the ankles.

An outfit isn’t complete with fabulous shoes – and a hot pair of kicks makes a great holiday gift! Plus, you’ll earn money for your school!

Look Beautiful for the Holidays!

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the parties. What can I say, I’m a sucker for frosted cookies.  During this busy social season, I’m always looking for ways to save on everything I need to look gorgeous.  If you’re like me, check out merchants like Sephora, Nars, Bath and Body Works, Macy’s and many more for savings on hot beauty products!

I can’t tell you how many stores I had to scour before I found the perfect eyeliner brush at Sephora.  And they have an extensive selection of frosty, shimmery eye shadow shades – perfect for winter celebrations!  And their wide range of brushes and accessories will help you get that perfect party look.

If Sephora has the best eyeliner brushes, Nars has the best eyeliner. My personal favorite is Night Breed – black with just a hint of glitter to fancy up your look. Their soft shades of blush, as well as their beautiful lip gloss and powder selections are must haves for holiday partying.

As someone who has been done up by the talented ladies at the Macy’s cosmetics bars more than once, I can personally testify to the quality of their beauty products. You’ll find bold, daring cosmetics lines like MAC and Smashbox. Or if you like to treat your skin to mineral cosmetics, Macy’s carries a full line of selections from bareMinerals.

Everyone loves a good holiday party. And it’s so much more fun when you feel pretty! Take advantage of savings from these great merchants and get everything you need to look your best this season!
