One of my favorite local boutiques, Melanie Gayle, is offering Mommy Stylist readers a great post-holiday deal. Between now and January 31 spend $75 or more (before tax) on any single item or multiple items combined (including sale items) and get $20 off the entire purchase. Moms, I know you’re busy and on a budget but as I always say, sales (and discounts) are the BEST way to get your hands on some stylish clothes you may have otherwise been unable to afford. You just spent the holiday season taking care of everyone else so now it’s time to do something for yourself. Head over to Snider Plaza and check out Melanie Gayle’s offerings. She always has pieces you can’t find anywhere else in town and although some can be pricey, between sale items and accessories, you should be able to find something you just can’t live without. This is one of those times it’s worth a small splurge to get something special and of high-quality that should last for several seasons. Just ask for the Mommy Stylist deal at check out. Happy shopping!

Parking warning: Parking in Snider Plaza can be a struggle if you go during peak hours which are noon to 1pm weekdays or anytime on Saturdays so try to schedule your “mom time” around that. Less time parking means more time shopping.

As you know, Accents is one of my favorite affordable boutiques here in Dallas. The clothes are always current, totally wearable and inexpensive. Well, tomorrow starts their anniversary week and they’re offering some great deals. Get over there ASAP to get in on the fun. As I always say, sales are the best way to get quality, stylish clothing – but you have to jump when they happen (which I know is hard with kids but try anyway – buy them a treat at Pinkberry across the street from the West Village location and they can sit and eat it on the bench outside the store while you shop). Details are below.

Get 40% Anything in the Store at Accents the First Tuesday of Every Month

1 Nov

Dallas moms, if you can find the time to get over to Accents in West Village tomorrow you won’t regret it. On the first Tuesday of every month (which is tomorrow) they offer 40% off anything in the store. I want to make sure you read that – FORTY PERCENT. There’s rarely anything over $100 and most clothing is significantly less. I’ve bought several things there. If the parking situation in West Village makes you want to scream (as it does me), the good news is that Accents is on Blackburn almost directly across from Pinkberry so you don’t have to get messed up in the hell that is the interior parking situation – try parking on Blackburn or even McKinney. If you go in the morning or mid-afternoon when it’s pretty quiet you probably won’t have trouble parking at all. The boutique has a large selection of jewelry and handbags as well as all the latest clothing trends.
