cyber monday 2010: let’s get ready to retail!

for those of you who look forward to today not just because it’s your first day back at work in nearly a week (thrilling, i know), but because “cyber monday” means you can pretend to work while actually scoring loads of deals and steals you can nab without engaging in fist fights at your favorite suburban mall, this post is for you.

as is our custom here at SMC, i’ll be giving you a rundown of the best discounts i see today – we’ll start with a list now (ranked in order of importance, as i see it), and as i get new information, i’ll add it to the top of the list, in italics, so you’ll know what the most recent updates are.  happy hunting!

  • piperlime:  take 20% off sitewide until midnight with code LUCKY20.  this should be a fun one to abuse for self-gifting purposes!
  • satsuma press: take 20% off sitewide on lynn’s amazingly beautiful collection of all-occasion cards, holiday cards, and that stunning 2011 letterpress calendar.  code SECRETSALE gets you the deal through 11/30.

  • cardigan new york:  i don’t normally like the “save up to…” nonsense on a day like this – i’m looking for a real sale – but this one’s a steal.  save “up to” 65% at cardigan new york, an excellent source for, well, cardigans…and striped sweaters galore!
  • inhabit:  in case you hadn’t noticed, it’s my favorite place for cashmere…and the pricing just got giftable.  take 30% off sitewide today with code THANKS.  you’ll be the talk of the family party if you’re gifting anything at all from this brand!
