Boden Spring 2010 is UP AND READY!!! (Plus a Little Anthro Help, Please?)


Just sitting here in our gorgeous sundresses waiting for April to come.

Run, do not walk, on over to Boden...their Spring Stuff is up and ready to be enjoyed, ogled over, and dreamed about. UPDATE: I clicked on over to Boden USA just now (9:40 am Sat Morning, EST), and there is a 10% off with free shipping and returns offer. I will probably wait, unless I see something I really want dips into the "pink" low quantities category. It still helps a bit, so if you want something now, this could be just the incentive you need!!! Also, please note that all sizes are in US sizes now, I guess to help make some of the guess work a little easier.

Oh, and because I am a freak and can move from talking about Boden to Anthropologie in the same darn post, I am going to post a polyvore I just created. I saw this GORGEOUS cardigan in the local Anthropologie a few weeks back and I totally regret not getting it...see I was really mad at Anthro for not refunding me money in a timely manner, so I went to the local to return one of the items I had purchased just to "show them." And of course as I was walking out I saw the cardigan and swooned. But I HELD strong, which must count for something. Regardless, this cardigan is like the PERFECT mid-century Mom kind of cardigan, is it not?

Any help ladies? I am going back to Tyson's on Monday, and I plan on calling them on Sunday to see if they have it, but I can't call and ask them to hold it for three days straight. That said, I would be willing to call stores and call them to have them ship it to me. Isn't that strange? I just feel like paying shipping from Tyson's would be ridiculous.

I would also be very willing to buy one from a blog friend, of course. EUC is just fine. :)

Have a sweet night, all. ;)

There were several of these at the anthro in downtown philadelphia on Wednesday.

dinagideon said...

Anon--you rock. I should be able to call them first thing tomorrow. :)

goldenmeans said...

The Palo Alto store in CA has several as well :)

dinagideon said...

Goldenmeans: Awesome. Sounds like I won't be casting any spells to bring this cardi into my fold. It is sold-out on line so I got a bit stressed. :) Silliness, but we all have caught it, huh? Thank you!!!

HeidiG said...

Any chance you could call Tysons and pay over phone and have them hold it for you? To save on the shipping?

dinagideon said...

HeidiG.: Smacks head. With computer. Duh, of course. Off to call them now and see if they will do it. :) And if they can't, Philadelphia and Palo Alto will help me out.

Tracey said...

hi i was admiring this in the Anthro store in Woodcliff Lake NJ today - several there as well. Good luck!

dinagideon said...

Okay, I found one in a size medium at the Anthro in Tysons. Melissa (I am naming her so I remember) told me she will hold it until MONDAY. Wow. Pretty cool. Hope it isn't too shopworn--only fear. She also said that it is turquoise and not robin's egg blue like I thought. Tomat-OH, Tom-AH-toe, whavevs... :) YAY!

Not on sale, but so very very pretty.

Tracey: Thank you. If this one is too shop-worn, I will be looking elsewhere, so this is very helpful.

Erin said...

Hmm -- I preordered Spring Boden stuff when they were having that sale. I hope it comes in the right size! They were still in British sizes then.

dinagideon said...

Yeah, Erin, I was thinking the same thing. (Crossing fingers right now...)

Looks like they should be shipping next week! Woo-hoo!

Suzy said...

Thanks for the update on Boden. Made me go to the site and revisit what I ordered. Interesting, b/c I ordered the Riviera jacket in grey, and it's not offered in grey? I went to check my order confirmation, and although the grey is in the picture - the color slot is blank? So I wonder if I'll really get it. AND I wondered the same thing as both of you above about the sizes.
I''m sure they will accommodate that. The cardigan I ordered is still there, so at least I can look forward to that!

Glad you found your cardigan!

Hi Dina, for future reference, you can always call the Anthropologie customer service 1-800-543-1039 and they can do a search for the item, you just need the item number. If your nearest store does not have it, they can do a search of the stores that carry the item and they will give you the phone numbers for those stores. They you can call those stores and they will ship it to you for free. Some stores try to charge you for it, but Customer Service has always told me that shipping should be free if they do not have the item at your nearest store. If they tell you "we cannot offer free shipping" then you say "Customer SErvice told me I could get free shipping". That usually works for me. If they say no, then I move on to the next store that has the item. :)
Cute sweater!

Elaine said...

I have emailed Boden to ask about the sizing switch. I have to say their CS is awesome -- I always email and always get superfast replies.

Thanks to all your cute outfits with Boden stuff, I think I'm going to make my first Boden purchase from their new spring collection. Now if only I can be patient enough to wait for a sale/coupon...

On the Boden sizing - I also placed a preorder and called customer service to find out what they were doing the sizing. I was told that the conversion would be made for me on the items shipped. I think this is a little odd (i.e., the UK size 10 was for size 4 and "larger" size 6's, so are they sending a 4 or a 6?). She couldn't tell me with respect to my order what sizes were shipped - at least returns are free!

Beth said...

Hey Dina,
Pretty cardigan! Looks like you found it!

I really like the Spring Boden stuff!
I just ordered the patent slouchy bag in frog and one of the pony hair wallets with the yellow trim. Can't wait to get them.
Have a great weekend.

Beth said...

Debye said...

My Boden Spring pre-order shipped today....yippee! I am a little nervous about the sizing switch since I ordered based on UK sizes and then it was switched to US sizing.

Glad you found the Anthr cardigan...it is really cute!

dinagideon said...

Hi, all! So I went to Anthropologie yesterday and was able to pick up the cardigan in a size medium, and it was in PERFECT condition. It is a fitted style, so ladies, if you want one, stay true to your J. Crew merino cardigan size. Trust me. :) Also, the cardi is a bit short, but that is in the spirit of the 50s era, will be styling this cardi with a pencil skirt or layering it with a tee or tank.

In regards to Boden, I am a little anxious to receive my spring stuff. Like a lot of you, I purchased early with my normal UK sizes. When the receipt came in the e-mail, it showed the sizes I purchased, not the "new" American sizes. Well, hopefully if I have to return stuff, I will be able to do so easily and for the same exact things (no selling out on me, Boden). Good luck to all of you who are in the same boat as me. Please, please let us know what happens with your order when it comes in...thank you in advance. :) And if you have a blog, could you do reviews? I would love to see Boden stuff reviewed more!!!

Rosa: Your advice about Anthropologie is AWESOME. Thank you...will use it for sure in the future!!!

I just pulled the trigger on two Boden items tonight after receiving the new catalog with the offer (a striped sailor tee and the linen printed tunic for the beach). I ordered the smallest US size that they offer, which quite oddly is 2 (I never ordered before for me so I don't know what to expect). So post on Boden coming up soon! Hopefully it will ship before I leave on vacation...
