Stock up on warm items before spring clothes hit the stores!

by Sylvia

best sale picks January 2014

In a few weeks time the new collections for winter 2014 will be presented and the spring 2014 collections will hit the stores. Still, it is only January, so if you still have a few cold months ahead, you may want to buy some warm essentials before they leave the stores.

Take advantage of the current sales and stock up on cashmere sweaters, stretchy tops for layering and jeans. Here are some of the sales you can choose from.

  • Save up to 50% on women’s clothing at Nordstrom
  • Up to 80% off at the Helmut Lang Warehouse sale. Some great items there!
  • 50% Off tops at Ann Taylor with Promo Code CHIC50. This weekend only.
  • Take extra 20% off at Farfetch with code x20jan14. Ends today.
  • Casadei: get inspired and shop FW13 50%
  • Get an additonal 25% off all sale items at Folica! Also get 25% off all hair tools using code TOOLS25LS
  • Take an extra 40% off all sale items at Madewell with code COZYUP

Here are some of my picks from Nordstrom.

Will you still be buying winter clothes in the sales? How early are you going to shop for Spring.

Living in So Cal, we never really had winter this year so I am already looking forward to spring clothes. I am going to Fashion Week in Palm Desert in March and am starting to think about what to wear for the weekend getaway!! I’ll definitely check out the Nordstrom sale!


Oh that sounds like fun Yolanda. I’m ready for the spring collections too. Bring them on!

FYI, the Ann Taylor discount code has expired. They’re offering big discounts, but not quite as big as they were offering with that code.


thanks for pointing that out. They actually have another great sale on this weekend on tops with a different code, so I updated the information.


It has been such a mild winter so far that I am now wondering if I should be looking to Spring rather than buying warm things, but the UK weather has a habit of taking you by surprise in January/February!


Haven’t forgotten the snow in the UK at the end of March last year… I’m hanging on…


I am still buying winter clothes. I like your selection a lot!

Great idea. Although, I’ve noticed a lot of stores already have tons of spring items. Yeah! I love warm weather.


Nice selection Sylvia. We are starting to get spring in our stores but it’s always way too soon. One of the clerks at a department store and I were joking about it this week. I did purchase two knit dresses for a good deal to wear in the summer this week. Thinking about showing them in a post to take a break from a coats. Congratulations on your style challenge, looked like a success!

I stocked up in the fall, so I’ve been OK with my supply of winter things and have resisted buying things just because they are a great deal (sometimes hard to do!). So, I have moved on to spring and purchased two pairs of Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, one in a sage green and the other in a stone color, and just today found a light coral v-neck pullover sweater (jumper) that is mostly cotton, with a touch of wool so I can use it now and into spring. We’ve had below freezing temperatures for what seems like forever, but I just needed a little warm-weather pick-me-up. 🙂 I’ve already worn both the jeans!

If you like to cruise, January is a great time to stock up on glam, embellished dresses and tops that didn’t sell during the holiday season. You can wear those items throughout the year for cruise formal nights and weddings… or anything festive. Tina Boomerina


Great list, thanks so much and love that white top on the far left top! It’s adorable!!! And that leather tee… swooning. The sales this year seem like they are even better than last year (or the year before….) I’ve been holding back, but definitely have invested in basics.

Other tips your readers might enjoy: if you are on an email list, there are some great sales to be had every day, especially at Ann Taylor, which has definitely upped their game recently, don’t you think? And Banana Republic has coupons in store for sales every Wednesday sales. And when you sign up for most emails, you typically receive 15% off your first purchase, which adds up if you know what you want!
