Ann Taylor’s Cyber Monday deal (50% off the entire store plus free shipping) generated so much interest that its website inevitably crashed. They proceeded to extend the deal but the website crashed yet again. Angry shoppers flocked to Ann Taylor’s Facebook page and demanded a resolution. Yesterday Ann Taylor came through with a $25 off $50 code (code: SPECIAL) that can be applied on both sale and regular priced items.
Ann Taylor is also running an additional 50% off promotion on its sale merchandise as well as 30% off full priced merino sweaters (my favorites are: Merino Crewneck Cardigan, Sequin Front Merino Wool Cardigan, Petite Merino Wool Turtleneck, and Extrafine Merino Wool Stripe 3/4 Sleeve Sweater). I thought the sale items were such a good deal that I decided to reschedule my outfit post for another day just so I can squeeze in this info.
The ideal situation is this: the item you are buying is exactly $100 on sale (or $99.99), with the 50% off the total is now $50. Use “SPECIAL” at check for another $25 off. Even with shipping (a steep $10 for standard shipping – an eight-day transit time), your total should be around $35 plus tax, a whopping 65% savings!
The catch is that items are often just a bit under $100 on sale or quite a bit over, making the deal not as attractive in some instances. If you plan on making a big purchase ($150 and more) and the $25 off code just isn’t that attractive, you can also use 10000003634 for 20% off (free shipping is automatic at $150).
If anyone is interested in what I ordered, here’s the list: Color Block Silk Scarf, Glitter Tweed Skirt, Aixa Lace-up Leather Platform Booties, Heavy Textured Scarf, Petite Crew Neck Cardigan, Stretch Cotton Jewel Neck Cardigan, and Petite Cascade Lapel Sleeveless Top (two colors)

For brides to be with bridesmaids who want a more economical solution for dresses, these two bridesmaids dresses (here and here) are on super sale with an array of sizes still available. You can probably get about three dresses for under $50 shipped after all the discounts.
