Okay, on Planet Retail it’s the end of summer, even if we just turned our calendars over to August, but the truth is, we’re still a full eight weeks away from the autumn equinox. So, what does that mean to pedestrian, fashion forward deal seekers like ourselves? Bargains. All around town. From the well-heeled to tiny tikes, discounts are a plenty, so let’s get started….
Isoude on Bellevue Avenue is having a rare, 30% discount on the spring Ready to Wear Collection. The 2010 collection, by Jamestown-based designer Katie Brierley, is marked by soft, feminine silhouettes, luxe fabrics and gentles hues, all promising timeless appeal. Find jackets, cocktail dress, blouses and pants marked down.
Down on Thames Street, ‘lil fashionistas can get their fill at the Groovy Gator, where all summer merchandise is marked down 20-50%.
For casual duds, today is the last day of the massive Life is Good Warehouse Sale at the Newport Harbor Hotel (til 10 p.m.) which has a ton of long and short sleeve t-shirts, flannel lounge pants and comfortable staples for men, women and children.
And up in Portsmouth, Stalise has tons of summer dress, pants, jeans and tops marked 30% off, like that silk Beth Bowley dress I spotted last week that can be worn all-year long.
