When it comes to holiday shopping, Macy’s has been a staple in the American way of life for 15 decades. The large retailer is using nostalgia to drum up business this season as their current “Macy’s 150 Years” commercial is sentimental and sweet. Admittedly it tugs at my heart strings and reminds me of a simpler time when my family would day trip to the city during the holiday season to eat oversized street pretzels while staring at the illustrious window displays. Yes, Macy’s has been a part of my life too.
I’m now willing to embrace the retailer even more as until December 7, you are invited to save 25% off of most of your purchases at the store courtesy of the recent “friends and family” promotion. One temptation I have is stocking up on my favorite Warner’s bra at a discount, but with so many options to choose from, those necessities may become my last purchase.
Instead, this savings is better used buying holiday gifts for others. If you are in the position to do some shopping for some other pear shaped ladies in your life, Macy’s certainly has the selection we can all benefit from. Top names in fashion are ripe for the picking and using the discount code to apply to lux fabrics like cashmere is an excellent decision. My top gift choices perfect for pear shaped figures of any age is a great Cashmere Ruffled Cardigan (sale $89.99) from the Charter Club:
The item comes in a variety of bold colors such as “Honey Glaze” and “Crystalline” and there are standard neutrals as well. Classic cardigans of this ilk are a curvy gals’ friend as the piece can be easily layered and paired with a number of existing pieces in the wardrobe and feels lovely against bare skin. With the discount (not including shipping or tax) the sweater becomes an affordable $67 and a perfect gift for your mom, sister or your very best friend in the world.
If that is too rich for your blood, Charter Club also makes adorable hats, scarfs and gloves providing the extravagance of cashmere in a more affordable price range. The starting prices for hats, gloves and scarves range from $27.99-$52.99:
Of course these items are one size fits all, so pear shaped figures, apple or any other fruity gal will be able to enjoy. The options for the pieces come in the full color of the rainbow an with the 25% discount (before shipping and tax) the pieces range from $21-$40.
