Talbots Extra 40% Sale

Edited to add: I just found out this was meant to be an unique code. I'm not sure if Talbots will be honoring the orders. This happened to me once before and the orders did go through. *crosses fingers*

Shopping With M shared a great Talbots code on Polyvore. In case you didn't know, use 019588431 to get an extra 40% off the lowest price and free shipping!

I went a little crazy with this one.

Here is what I ordered.

Turnlock Suede Clutch

I've been eyeing this one for months. But as I feel envelope clutches are pretty trendy and won't be in style for long, I didn't want to pay too much. $22.50 sounds just about right for me!

Scoopneck Cable Knit Sweater

I've put a ban on buying cardigans as I own way too many and not very many pull overs sweaters. This one will fit the bill nicely.

Cowl Neck Dress

Winter dresses are hard to find. I have lots of blue, gray and black dresses so the green will be a nice edition to my closet.

Silk Georgette Pleated Skirt

I've wanted a mustard skirt forever.

Now the waiting game begins. Will any of these items actually ship? I've had really bad luck in the last few months. Numerous orders have been canceled by Talbots due to inventory problems.

Are you shopping at Talbots? What did you order?


  1. The code worked for me too and I hope my items ship, I also ordered a turnlock suede clutch but in the bright violet color, as well as the black feather bag. This is how I like to add to my party bag collection: on super sonic sale!

  2. My last order they didn't ship, but still showed the item in stock after they had canceled mine. I used a gift card and was happy I had the foresight not to throw it out after I ordered. Now I still have my gc and trying to find something that I want, that is in-stock in my size. I really want the double faced wool blazer - nope. Or the shetland wool blazer - nope. So frustrating.

    I am worried about the future of Talbots because so many are closing.

  3. I love that skirt! How do their clothes run? I've never ordered from them before, but I might have to start today!

  4. Dani, that black clutch is super cute! Super sonic sales are fun!

  5. Molly, that same situation happened to me a couple of times as well. I emailed Talbots to complain but no reply. :-(

  6. Erin, the clothes definetely run big. I size down in most things.

  7. Ooh, that green dress will be so pretty with all your tights and boots. Good choice! I just did a massive closet clean out and have forbidden myself from buying anything after Friday's J.Crew Factory promo code weakness :-/ You make it hard with your tempting codes.

  8. I just ordered that skirt (in the wine colorway) last week and am so bummed that I didn't get the discount! The prices are so low that I'm tempted to buy more stuff.

  9. I managed to restrain myself, but the boiled wool jacket and the double-faced wool jacket were surely calling my name today!

  10. Thanks Haley. I missed that J Crew sale so I'm making up for it with this one!

  11. Jenn, do it! (I'm an enabler.)

  12. Rose, I was considering the boiled wool jacket as well. But jackets are something I like to buy "in real life". Good for you for staying string!
