Deals & Steals: MLK Weekend Edition

With Monday’s observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Newporters are looking forward to the 3-day weekend which may include sledding, ice skating on Lily Pond or at the Skating Center, or toasting our winter wonderland with a piping hot Irish Coffee (would love to know YOUR favorite Irish Coffee around town). Fresh of the Christmas holiday rush, area retailers are anxious to move inventory to make room for spring (oh, doesn’t spring sound fabulous right now?) Here’s the scoop:

Wish (‎664 Thames Street) is slashing prices with 20%, 30% and 50% of select styles, and they have a ton of labels to tout: Marc Jacobs, DVF, Burberry, Free People, Prada, and Coach as well as designer denim as low as $25! Sale is today through Sunday…

The Linen Shop (196 Bellevue Avenue): There’s just something about starting off the new year with fresh linens…and here’s great news. THE ENTIRE SHOP is 20% off and there’s a special sale table with goods marked down up to 70%. If you’ve never been, you should stop by there, just to take in the history of it’s location and get a sense of what fine linens are all about. Owner Meg McGuire is always a gracious host and knows just about everything there is to know about bath and linen lines. Here you’ll find pieces by Abyss, Matouk, Yves Delorme and more.

Michael Hayes (202 Bellevue Avenue and 19 Bowen’s Wharf) Designer Sale is in full swing with, and I love this, 20% off already marked down clearance goods.

Cottage & Garden (9 Bridge Street) is putting all topiaries on sale tomorrow (Saturday), so here’s your chance to welcome a little living, breathing freshness to your home.

Banana Republic in Washington Square (124 Thames Street) has a lot of great items on sale. Let me just tell you—I stopped in last night just to see if there might be a piece for me to wear this coming Monday in The Rhode Show (I’ll be dishing on my Golden Globes best dressed and hot messes!) and was torn between two great dresses. I bring them both to the register (including the one pictured here). The silk v-neck drape dress in grey was originally $150, had been marked down to $129, then $109, then $79, then $54.99. THEN I spot a sign—items are AN ADDITIONAL 40% off—hello, my new $32.99 dress. Oh, and the little black number I was mulling over too? $150 to $109 to $59.99 to hanging in my closet for $35.99!!!

If you’re looking to get gorg, Ki-Ra Salon (6 West Marlborough Street) is celebrating their annual Pay It Forward Sale—bring in a bag of non-perishables or personal hygiene products and receive 30% off all services (over $15) and all retail products (some restrictions apply), now through February 12…

Mommies take note: Infant Interiors (8 Freebody Street, # 1) by lovely cover girl Roselle McConnell is having their Once in a Blue Moon sale with 30%-50% off floor models including bedding, dressers, lamps, chandeliers, Moses baskets (love to give Moses baskets as gifts!), window treatments, rugs and art, now through Jan. 31.

A little something for the men (and women), The Narragansett on Bowen’s Wharf (3 Bowen’s Wharf) is hosting their annual Winter Clearance Sale…my husband picked up some great Polo Ralph Lauren pieces there during their last sale. Includes 50-70% off on Paul & Shark, Geiger, Viyella, Rainforest, Max Mara, Faconnable and more. (Polo Ralph Lauren sweater pictured may not be available)

Happy shopping!

Shop Around the Docks

In lieu of playing “chicken” in an overcrowded mall parking lot and wishing coal in the stockings of grumpy shoppers,  look to local shops where you can find everything from name-brand favorites to handcrafted wares by local artisans. If you haven’t been already, the shops at Bannister Wharf are totally decked out for the holidays and the nearby Bowen’s Wharf Christmas tree glows as soon as the sun falls into the sea. Start with a hot chocolate or hot cider from the Coffee Grinder and peruse the galleries including coastal and marine art by Anthony Gil at Art on the Wharf; world renowned photography by Onne van der  Wal; or jewelry and fine art by Didi Suydam. Find clothing from casual to classic including sweatshirts from The Black Dog and Newport Breeze; contemporary pieces from Ralph Lauren, Paul & Shark  and more at The Narragansett; foul weather gear from Murphy & Nye; hip classics  from tyler böe; European finery from Barbour waterproofs to Le Chameau boots at Royal Warrant and haute style from the isle of St. Barth’s at Mandarine Boutique. Find uniquely Newport treasures the Newport Mansions Store for local friends or those who still yearn for the City-by-the-Sea. And finally, polish off your secret Santa’s look with a leather handbag or accessories from Brahmin and chic shades from Tradewinds Sunglass Company.

Swathed with greens greens, crisp red bows and sparkling lights, the shops at Bannister Wharf is the stress-free way to shop this holiday season. Remember, meters are free this time of year and free parking all week long in wharf parking lot December through May.
