The silver lining of a rainy day? No guilt in abandoning the beach for bargains! Plenty of local shops are starting their summer sales now to make room for fall arrivals. Start with a jolt of caffeine from Café Bellevue (111 Bellevue Avenue), a hidden java gem known for good service, better coffee and fair prices (give in to that urge for fresh pastry—it’s worth every calorie!). Just about a block away, designer denim hotspot Laura Jean just launched a Hudson Jeans promotion. With a purchase of any pair of hot Hollywood-worthy Hudsons, get a pair of the brand’s classic Reilly 5-pocket flair jeans for half-off (Reilly original price: $165, Now: $82.50; while supplies last).
Down on Thames Street, Banana Republic (124 Thames Street) is hosting a Warm Up to Summer event, offering an additional 25% off all your full-priced purchases from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. (you’ll have to say you saw the offer on Andrea’s NewportStylephile blog!). While perusing the racks, Ki-ra Salon will be on-hand to give mini massages, samples and make-up touch ups. Note: this offer is only available at the Newport location.
Nearby, Brooks Brothers Country Club store (139 Swinburne Row ) is
offering up to 60% off selected items including light men’s sweaters, women’s sweaters, women’s dresses (super cute!) and perennial Newport classic: SEERSUCKER! Perfect for that summer wedding or a night out wandering Bowen’s Wharf, this light, ubiquitous look has been hot in Newport since the turn of the century for men and today is embraced by women as well.
Finally, Newport’s J. Crew on the Harbor (45 Long Wharf Mall) has already slashed prices on select items, but through tomorrow (July 22), just mention the code EXTRA20 at check out for an additional 20% off sale items!
