Fall 2012: Shoes

Thursday, September 20, 2012

As hard as it is to say goodbye to the summer, with its sandals and flip-flops and pedicured toes, it’s so lovely to greet the fall, with its boots and lace-ups and flats, giving your feet a bit of a rest for a few months. We’ve done our research, sent our buyers to market and they’ve returned with a synopsis of the best of the fall trends: Equestrian, Western, Smoking Slippers, Jewel Tones and All That Glitters. And then, of course, they delivered the goods. Oh, did they deliver the goods. Honestly, it’s a little bit overwhelming – the colors, the styles, the heels, the hardware - but in the very best way! Visit our shoe pages online to see all that we have to offer.


Fall in Love … With New Bedding!

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Fall is in the air and now is the time to think about changing out your bed for winter. Here is the low down on how to stay snug….

Down comforters are the classic way to stay cozy through the fall and winter. Down is the warmest and softest type of comforter that you can get, plus it’s 100% natural. Down comforters come in a variety of weights depending on how warm you want to be. Down Alternative comforters are another way to stay warm. They use synthetic fills to emulate the insulation power of down. People who have allergies often go with these types of comforters since they are naturally hypo-allergenic.  Down and down alternative comforters often come in white; an excellent way to dress them up is with a duvet cover.  A duvet covers your comforter and protects it from daily use as well as adding some fashion to your room.  They are also a great way to change your look without changing your comforter. 

For sheets, long gone are the days where flannel was the only option. Flannel sheets are still the classic options since they are warm and comfy as well as durable.  Fleece sheets are great for maximum warmth. They are made out of synthetic materials and are hypo-allergenic. For those who need just a little extra warmth, check out our cold weather microfiber performance sheets.   These sheets are made out of durable but soft microfiber material that has been given a brushed treatment.  This gives the sheets an extra soft texture and allows them to keep in the warmth better than a standard microfiber sheet.  Check out our great assortment of cold weather sheets now!

Another option to keep you warm this winter is heated bedding. Choose from electric blankets with dual controls, throws, and mattress pads.  All are heated to keep you cozy and comfortable this upcoming winter season.

Welcome to Fashion Week!

Thursday, September 13, 2012

This is the week when we’re proud to debut the hottest styles and must-haves for the season ahead. While it’s not possible for most of us to completely replace our existing wardrobes, it’s fun to choose a couple of key pieces to update your look and to stay on-trend.

I know that I’m in love with my colored jeans from last season, so I’m going to take it a step further and replace them with a great pair of printed skinny jeans (I'm thinking lace!) for fall. Judy, our Director of E-commerce, is nothing if not chic, but she’ll shop savvy, too. Her eye is on a swingy tweed cape jacket, and you can bet she’ll get it on sale. Elisa, who oversees everything Home-related, is looking to update her polished, professional look with a colorful, uniquely-printed blouse. (Bird prints are huge right now!) And Catherine, our Bridal Expert, has already pre-shopped the perfect subtle, shimmery, body-skimming dress to take her to the various weddings and events she’s been invited to.

So take the time to shop your closet, replace what you need to, and add trendy looks where it makes sense. Have fun, invest in those pieces that speak to you, and revel in Fall ‘12.

Deal of the Day: 1000 Thread Count Cotton Sheet Set

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

One design tip nearly all interior designers agree on when it comes to decorating a bedroom is that it pays to spend a little extra to get the best quality sheets you can afford – and the higher the thread count, the better the sheets. The thread count is the number of threads woven together per square inch, so the higher the number, the softer, silkier and more durable the sheets. Today’s Deal gives you great quality at a great price: Elite Home Products Lancaster 1,000-thread count 6-pc. cotton sheet set (fitted sheet, flat sheet and four pillow cases) for a very affordable 69.97!  Buy a couple sets for your bed and don't forget your guest bedroom!

Sorry, Deals of the Day priced so low, additional discounts do not apply.  Offer available online only.


Lancôme Gift: Sneak Peek!

Monday, September 10, 2012

Lancôme gift kicks off tomorrow, September 11th and it is a beauty!  This gift can be yours with any $35 or more Lancôme purchase.  Your gift gets even better (three color design lip colors!) with a Lancôme purchase of $75 or more!

Not sure what to buy?  I recommend Lancôme’s newest fragrance, Le Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum Spray.  Translation:  “La vie est belle” is a French expression meaning “Life is beautiful”.  Developed by three masters of French perfumery over the years, the unprecedented scent blends the elegance of iris with the strength of patchouli and the sweetness of praline.  You'll surely feel (and smell!) beautiful wearing this fragrance it exudes joy, femininity and happiness.  Shop Lancôme now!
