Banana Republic Memorial Day Sale – In-Store Finds

Just wanted to get this up in case anyone is interested while doing some shopping this three-day weekend.

Banana Republic stores have some good deals not available online this weekend. Employees are giving away coupons at the door that could be worth 30%, 40% or 50% off your entire purchase (some exclusions apply).

Banana-Republic-Button-Back-Blouse-1

This was my exciting find this weekend…a small fitting, light weight cotton button-down. This button-down is unique in that it has a row of buttons down the middle of the back which make it super slim fitting. Are you pretty much small all over? button up all the back-buttons for a smaller fit. Are you busty? Just un-button the top back-button and the bust is magically let out.

Banana-Republic-Button-Back-Close

Excuse the wrinkles in these photos…I took these right after coming home from the mall.

The length is good for tucking, and the overall fit was really nice on me. The sleeves are 3/4 length, making it summer appropriate.

These button-downs are marked down to $49.50, and I was fortunate enough to get a 50% off coupon at the door, making the grand total $24.75 + tax. Comes in pink or blue online, but I only saw blue in store.

Product Info – Size 00P:
Banana-Republic-Button-Back-Measurements
Laying Flat
100% cotton
Machine wash cold
Tumble dry low

These seersucker shorts (buy online here) are also marked down for the holiday weekend to $39.99, plus any additional percent off you get with your in-store coupon.

I also picked up these Coach loafers from the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale. I usually dislike logos all over designer products, like the over-done C’s on Coach items, but I like the shape on these (Audrey Hepburn, anyone?), and luckily the black logos on the black fabric isn’t very noticeable when worn on the feet. I bought these in my usual size 5, and they run slim enough to fit nicely on my narrow feet.

Have a wonderful weekend! ;)

    The fit of the shirt is very figure flattering. 
    I love the turquoise
    necklace on the mannequin. 
    May I ask where it could be purchased? Thank you.

      I know! It’s a very nice detail. Especially from BR, which has been pretty boring lately. I’m really surprised to find two pieces in one week from there.

    I have Coach ballet flats in the same logo fabric (black on black). They really aren’t noticeable and Coach shoes are actually of great quality! Great finds!

      Thanks JP! These are my first pair of Coach shoes, so I’m happy to hear they’re good quality. ;)

    Thanks for posting this, Kelly! I found a pair of small-fitting aviators (been looking FOREVER) at BR last weekend but didn’t want to cough up the $98 for them, but with the sale you mentioned I can’t wait to get to the store. I also LOVE that shirt and don’t own any button-downs because they never fit me properly, so this is a definite must-try!

    Great finds and the shoes are adorable. :)

      Hi MoneyMaus! I just read the exclusions and it looks like the sunglasses are available for the extra percent off.  Bags and shoes are excluded, but it doesn’t say anything about accessories like jewelry or sunglasses. :)

    The buttons on the back are such a marvelous idea! Love!

    Btw, I think you accidentally linked “cotton button down” to the seersucker shorts. I think you meant this link: http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=5197&vid=3&pid=833913&scid=833913002

    Hi Kelly, I have the same problem with logos all over bags, shoes, etc. I used to hate Coach for it. But somehow I was able to acquire a lot of the pieces with very little logo and be happy with it. :) Talking about Coach, I bought a pair of wedges recently that I love! Still in the breaking in period, but oh, their shoes are so classy.
