So I had a little time to kill between leaving work and going to watch America’s Next Top Model with friends (and I needed some tights), so I decided to pop into Lord & Taylor:

Lord and Taylor

Of course I went there to get one thing, but I almost couldn’t help but take a look at the winter coats on the 6th floor.

I couldn’t take any pictures in there, but y’all, there were some great coats on sale!

L & T had all the best brands…if you look at their website, you’d think that they only have Calvin Klein, DKNY, etc, but I saw Cinzia Rocca, Via Spiga, Steve by Searle, Paul & Jo, Laundry by Shelli Segal, and other top of the line brands.

They had 30% off puffy coats like this $130 one by Kenneth Cole:

and this $200 one by Marc NY:

They also had 30% off wool coats like this $250 by Calvin Klein

and this $250 one by DKNY:

as well as coats by Jones New York, and Larry Levine on sale (unfortch Cinzia Rocca, Via Spiga, etc were mostly full price).

Bonus: when I went to check out, I saw they were giving away coupons (valid until Nov. 7th) that took $50 off purchases of $200 or more, and $20 off purchases of $100 or more.

Of course, as is my way, I fell in love with this $560 coat by BCBG Max Azria:

And, of course, on top of not being on sale (and almost $600), it’s exempt from the coupon. Woe is me.

BUT the great thing about Lord & Taylor: They have sales all the time, and coupons are easy to come by if you sign up on their website. Also, young ladies, L&T carries all the brands that we know and love (Nanette Lepore, Theory, French Connection), but I swear, you never see twenty somethings in there. The older women know what’s up…but that means that there’s always lots of designer stuff leftover, usually at deep discounts. I learned my lesson when I bought an impossible to find $400 Nicole Miller dress there for $150 this past summer.

Check it out!

Sign up on their mailing list at or visit their location at 424 5th Avenue and 39th street. It’s gonna be chilly before you know it (my Northeast girls are already feeling the cold, I’m sure).
