There are tons of sales going around the island! Lots of restaurants and retailers are offering additional discounts with a Newport Winter Festival button, click here for a complete list of discounts.
Also, Kristina Richards is having a HUGE sale this weekend. If you have any doubt, I can tell you I picked up a T-Bags tunic with a stunning beaded collar that was marked $228 for $25. There were super steals on dresses and tops by Milly, Alice + Trixie, Shoshanna, Alexis, and Monrow, plus a whole table of sale jeans by J Brand, Seven, Rich & Skinny and DL1961.
Down on Lower Thames, shoe shop Tropical Gangstilettos is offering 35% off store-wide (except for new arrivals) where I spotted platforms, flats, knee-high boots and the much-coveted over-the-knee boots. Most sale shoes and boots with the discount are under $50. At Team One Newport, everything in the store is at least 15% off (there are a few exceptions) so sailors can gear up. And at Wish, the girls are gearing up for their big move up the hill, so there are huge discounts on top of the already low fabulous consignments.
J. McLaughlin on Bellevue has slashed prices to make room for spring, but the bast part is that so many of their pieces you can wear all year long. Case in point, the silk Kara vest I scored that was originally $198 for $25 and the $195 dress for $35. (The delightful silk taffeta ballerina skirt in pink (seen above) is also on sale and it’s awesome, as are scarves, belts, toes and accessories. Great menswear is also deeply discounted, including sweaters, polos, outerwear, hats, needlepoint belts, embroidered pans and ties!
