Boden: 30% Off Everything.

So like the rest of the retail world out there, Boden started their "Black Friday/Cyber Monday" sale yesterday, a full three days before Friday.  I don't know if I love this or am disappointed.  On one hand, it is nice to be able to enjoy the sale for a while, but on the other hand, the Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays of the past used to be a really big deal.  I have memories of 40% off everything at Boden on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and though it only lasted one day or possibly that weekend, it really felt like it was a big deal sale.  And it often was, with the 40% off being the lowest prices many of the items ever saw.  (Even in clearance!)

Now, I am not sniffing, this 30% off is great for the regularly priced items that have been on a wishlist but are very popular and will not go below this % off, say the Boucle Jacket in white (here), the Swing tunic (here), or the Hettie dress (here).  But this 30% is not on anything already on clearance or on sale for more than 30% off.  It does not work on Icons, fwiw.

Anyhow, I think this is it, maybe they will pull another trick out their hats for Monday, but I am not holding my breath. 

I am away from home which means I actually have time to get things done besides working, sleeping, child-rearing, and eating, so I probably can get a honest-to-goodness Boden Review Roundup done, so if you have something for me, definitely leave the review here at the Boden Reviews tab, or email me at dinagideon AT aim DOT com.

I have a few recent outfits that feature items from the current fall/winter collection at my Instagram feed if you are interested.  :-)  The #bodenbyme Instagram feed shows what others are wearing, too.

Any thoughts on what people should possibly think about purchasing from this sale?

P.S. I made another couple of items for Fabric Mart, and I posted about them here at their blog.  I dipped into athleisure wear.  I kind of dig it.  :-)
