Just the Sales Ma’am.
When it comes to clothes and shoes, I want what I want, but I don’t want to pay full-price. Thankfully Shop It To Me knows this and offers up all of my beloved brands, on sale and in my inbox. If you love to shop but haven’t heard of Shop It To Me, prepare to get excited.
Shop It To Me works as your free, personal online shopper. When you sign up for this daily, weekly or semi-weekly e-mail service you can select women’s, men’s, girl’s or boy’s clothing and then you choose from more than 650 designer brands, including Theory, Banana Republic, Kate Spade, Ella Moss, Ugg and just about every other brand your stylish self wants to be wearing. You can even narrow down your results to specific styles of clothing and sizes.
Each morning, waiting for you will be your salemail featuring your current favorites on sale that day directly from web sites such as Nordstrom, Piperlime, Smartbargains, Shopbop and Revolve Clothing, just to name a few. You don’t purchase from Shop It To Me, when you click on an item to purchase you are taken directly to the retailer’s Web site.
In addition to the salemail, at the bottom of each e-mail is a link to your Sale Spot, which will connect you directly to a Web site featuring all of the items currently on sale that fit the parameters you entered when you signed up. While your salemail may only have 50 items on sale that day, your Sale Spot has thousands, trust me… my current sale spot lists 5,093 items! Fortunately, you can filter these items to a specific item of clothing, designer or retailer. Yes, for a fashionable bargain hunter, it is as tempting as it sounds.
If you are a runner, Shop It To Me also offers a Shop It To Me Running so you can get sales of name brand running shoes, athletic wear and gear.
Some recent sales that caught my eye included a pair of Joe’s Jeans regularly $174 on sale for $51 from Nordstrom and a $995 Marc Jacobs dress for $348 from the Outnet, neither of which I bought, but the “window” shopping is fantastic.
With three little kids at home, I don’t have the time to go and scour the mall or the entire internet for the perfect sale items, but I’ve learned to enjoy the thrill of the hunt being sent to me directly.
