A few things for this post…
1) Oprah has an ‘O Shop’ on Ideeli. I checked it out for fun. They are offering a one-year subscription to O magazine for $12. I stubbornly refuse to subscribe and usually end up buying issues at Costco for 30% off. It would make a great gift, although I don’t know if you’re allowed to put someone else’s name/address as the recipient. I also don’t know if they charge shipping on Ideeli for that item. I sure hope not since they’re not shipping anything in this case. Click here to join Ideeli or log in if you’re already a member. $1 an issue is really good.
2) Also in the O shop on Ideeli are a few items from Talbot’s.
Faux fur collar $34
Animal print cardigan $69
Flower station necklace $62
The savings is about 30% if I roughly calculate. The drawback is paying for shipping. Also there are no returns allowed on the items. If you already tried & know you want the items, could be a win for you. If not, you’re stuck with them. At any rate, I think the inclusion is good exposure for the revamped Talbot’s.
3) Be sure to enter the Talbot’s contest. Three winners will each win a pair of jeans and a $50 gift card. Those three winners will move on to what I call the bonus round, for a shot at a larger prize — to be announced by Talbot’s. I have no clue what it is. My post on the contest is quite lengthy. What you need to know is — submit a short blurb, story, anecdote, etc… about how you like to wear your jeans. Share a pic online or a Polyvore outfit in your post. Provide your email address. The contest ends tonite. I’ve extended the deadline to 11:59 pm PST. Click here to enter. If you don’t want to enter for some reason, I invite you to check out the Talbot’s blog, Red Chair Confessions. In this post there’s news about a cosmetics collab. Receive a red lipstick for free with a $150 or more in-store purchase thru 9/18.
Who watched Oprah’s show on Monday, kicking off her final season? I did. That lady owes me a shipment of tissues for making me cry all these years. Why does this happen without fail?
Has anyone been to Talbot’s lately? Tried on their jeans? I haven’t been to the store lately, but am eager to visit soon and try some new arrivals.
FYI: I selected a dress from Talbot’s for hosting the $150 giftcard contest this past summer. I also received 2 pairs of jeans for hosting the current free jeans/$50 giftcard giveaway. I tried on all their jeans & picked the slim leg ankle jean (6P) and trouser jean (6P).
I’ve never received monetary compensation for writing about Talbot’s and don’t work for them.
