Deals & Steals: Autumn’s Arrival Edition

It’s the last 48 hours of the fab Apothecary sale, the biggest yet, which runs through Saturday. Discounts are throughout the store, from 15% -75% off ,and on a ton of lines including i.d bareMinerals, MD Skincare, Stila, Mario Badescu, md Formulations, Ren (bio-active skin care), Murad and Ojon (awesome natural hair care). Also, colorful tunics have been marked down to $19 (from $29) and for the home, you’ll find 30% off soy candles and room sprays. And there’s a bargain table (love those; they get right t the point)! Run, don’t walk….

Speaking of regattas, stock up on your sailing gear (or just get the look) at the PUMA Ocean Racing Tent Sale over at Newport Shipyard. Here’s the deal: on Saturday, admission limited to Sail for Hope ticket holders only (4 p.m. – 8 p.m.), but on Sunday, the sale opens to the public with great deals on the best PUMA threads and accessories. Sunday’s sale at the yard is from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., so fuel up with breakfast at Belle’s and then get your shopping on! NOTE: Sale accepts cash or check only!!!

Michael Hayes in Newport (both the Bellevue Avenue and Bannister’s Wharf locations) has marked summer merchandise 50 % -75% off. I know, with apple cider served at every corner Dunkin’ Donuts and pumpkins-a-plenty, your fashion instincts are far beyond summer fashion, but think about that mid-winter cruise, that January jaunt in Florida, that destination wedding, that BVI regatta that you fly down for but never actually see the race but instead spend your days at Foxy’s Tamarind Bar (a.k.a. Foxy’s). Buy it at a bargain now, wear it later.

Gossip on Thames Street (on the same stretch as Annabelle and Cosmetic Cosmos) also has 40% off a ton of merchandise. Owner Janelle Feigley tells me she plans to keep the shop open at least on weekeds when the weather is co-operative. Her flagship shop of the same name is worth a visit next time you’re in Wickford, and they  are  known to hast terrific private shopping parties!
