Post-holiday spending


So, who has taken advantage of the post-holiday sales and what did you buy? While I vowed to put the skids on the spending after the holidays, I couldn’t resist the 40 percent off e-mail I received from Vineyard Vines on Dec. 26. So, I ordered the High Tide sweater in Pink Lemonade. It’s warm and comfy and brightens up the winter blahs with its cheerful color. It was an okay deal, although as much as I love VV, they are a bit overpriced. Come on, Ian and Shep, the sweater was originally priced at $125 - for a cotton sweater. I mean, the little whale logo on the front is cute and all, but seriously. Even the model in the photo above seems to be saying, “OMG, you paid how much? Sucker.”

But, I did buy the sweater. Guilty as charged. I guess in the end it is all about the little whale logo. Yeah, I’m a total consumer.

Editorial note: Just a few minutes after this post went live, I received another e-mail from VV about their 40 percent off sale. I think they're watching me. :)

The guilt of the purchase and price will fade, but the sweater will give you many days of comfort and joy.

Love their clothes... I want email promos! I've been wearing my Lilly cable-knits to make me feel a little warmer inside. They do the trick!

And I agree with Rita!

This is very, very funny!
No, I haven't taken advantage of those sales yet!

WHAT!? I did not receive the coupon. Perhaps I need to buy more? I agree though- some of the things seem worthy of a higher price point- but not that much higher.

I'm trying to hold off on the post-holiday sales... indulged a little too much pre-holiday!

I have never heard of them. And no, please don't send me their website link. I am tempted enough at it is. Just came back from a spree at Gap. Unfortunately, I only bought non-sale item. Duh! (Hey, I am just trying to keep the economy alive!!)
