Saving At Planet Blue

19 May


What’s better than shopping at one of our favorite boutiques? Shopping at one of our favorite boutiques while everything is on sale. This weekend at the Planet Blue Montana location in Santa Monica, Ca, everything in store was 50% off or more. I received an email after subscribing at shopplanetblue.com and I jumped at the opportunity to take advantage of the huge savings. I love the brands that PB carries such as Jen’s Pirate Booty, Blu Moon, Blue life, Novella Royale, WildFox, Rebel Yell, Mara Hoffman, Free People, Stone Cold Fox, and more. PB carries relaxed and casual beachy and boho staples that are perfect for a laid back lifestyle and that embodies the spirit of sunny California. The sale included everything by Blu Moon for $45, everything by Blue Life for $35, all jeans for $50 (only during a three “happy” hour period), and everything else for 50% off. Additionally, if we either liked their Facebook page or tagged the store on Instagram, they took an another 10% off the entire purchase total. Jeans that normally retail for $200+, I scored for over 75% off. I walked away with perfect summer must-haves.


Summer Lovin’ Dress (can’t get enough of these) by Blu Moon. V-Neck Bell Sleeve Short Dress by Blu Moon.


Easy Breezie Blazeer in Fuschia by Blu Moon. Halter Cutout High Low Dress by Blue Moon. Andes Shirt Tail Hem Blouse by Rory Beca.


Tie-Dye Shorts with Grommets by Blue Life. Nancy Shorts by Novella Royale. 3 pairs of The Looker Skinny Jean by Mother (love the fit and the perfect light-weight material).

There are several three other Southern California locations and I’m sure each store will have a similar sale, so there still may be an opportunity to take advantage and save.

Saving At The Dessert Hills Premium Outlets

2 Apr


What’s the best top designer outlet mall in California? The Dessert Hills Premium Outlets is the absolute destination for designer deals. This mall is located in Cabazon California, about 20 minutes from Palm Springs, heading back towards Pasadena, which is about another hour away. The mall has about 130 outlet stores, including designer labels such as Gucci, Burberry, Yves Saint Laurant, Jimmy Choo, Marni, Dolce and Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, Diane Von Furstenberg. There are so many shops, so it’s difficult to browse every store, but I usually park in the East Wing, which includes all of the stores just mentioned as well as the Nike Factory Store, BCBG Max Azria, Kate Spade New York, Theory, Michael Kors,Tory Burch, Polo Ralph Lauren, Barneys New York, James Perse and Lacoste. I have never failed to find some great designer deals during every visit, snagging items that range from 30-80% off retail prices. In addition to finding items from pasts season, many of the outlet stores also carry current season styes, such as the classic Burberry trench coats or designer bags. My bf was able to order a brand new YSL Muse bag for me, currently retailing in department stores for 30% more. The Nike Outlet Store had the Free Runs 3 in Liquid Lime that I was searching for forever that are no longer available anywhere in stores that I found along with some retro-style runners, new socks, and a dri-fit workout tank. I purchased a new black leather Max Azria belt for over 60% off, and some awesome Kate Spade headphones that I was eyeing a month ago but couldn’t resist getting at 40% off. What’s even better than saving at the outlet, are the additional Easter holiday sales that discount already discounted items. The outlets also offer great customer service, that will assist us in locating items at other outlet stores, will ship items if we decide we want shipped to us (after leaving the store, that may not fit in our luggage, or for conveniency), or will give us business cards for any future inquiries or questions. Seeing the prices at the outlets almost makes me not want to purchase anything at retail prices again… Well, I did say almost.
