Aritzia Warehouse Sale part 2

As previously posted by Lofty Goods, the Aritzia Warehouse Sale is here in South Surrey and will continue straight into the new year. (Staff say it will be closed Jan 31 2015)

New items are being set out daily and right now,  all of their premium denim jeans are priced at a flat price of $29.99!

Brands that I saw this week are as follows: jbrand FidelityCitizens of HumanityCurrent ElliottRag & Bone and more! All the jeans are stacked and sorted by size and wash/colour. I picked up a black current elliott  pair with a leather coating, a current elliott dark blue skinny stretch pair and a pair of super dark fidelity skinny jeans. 

These lines of premium denim usually cost upwards of $150-300 a pair.

Did you have jeans on your Christmas wishlist? 

Staff said that they will continue at this price until told otherwise,  but go and treat yourself to a pair while we are confident of price points.
Happy Shopping!

Aritzia Warehouse Sale Surrey

From October 7 to October 31, Aritzia is having a Warehouse Sale at the Morgan Crossing shopping centre in South Surrey (unit #110)

***see bottom for updates to post

Located at the corner of Croydon Drive and Main St, it's a smaller venue, but promises to be filled with new stock on a daily basis.  We parked at the old Best Buy lot (Restoration Hardware's future home) and walked across to the shop.  (The Main Street parking spots say 1hr).

Prices are per usual, blocked by category.  All jeans (rag & bone, COH, etc.) are $49.99 or less, sweaters are $29.99, shirts are $39.99, blazers start at $49.99.  

Today's finds...a Community Lexis Romper $39.99 (reg.$125), Wilfred Free Buffalo Check Tunic $39.99 (reg.$95), rag & bone skinny jeans $49.99 (reg.$188), Talula Lenox Sweater $29.99 (reg.$75)

People have been wondering about their more popular items.  There were a limited number of Trooper jackets (navy, camo) in smaller sizes, as well as a few TNA 'cowichan' sweaters.

The fellow that opened the doors today said to "check back often."  New merchandise arrives daily...3 more shipments are expected today even.  There were also scads of unopened boxes still on the floor this morning.  I guess with it going until Oct.31st, more than one visit may actually happen!!

Update: (Oct. 20, 2014)
Seeing how I only live a 10 minute drive from the sale, I've actually popped back in three times since my initial visit.  DISAPPOINTED each and every time!!  I went back on day 2 at store opening (figuring new stuff would for sure be added, and the store would be tidy)... There were a few things added, but nothing worth giving a second look.  Walked out with a black boyfriend blazer that I regretted not purchasing for myself the previous day.  

My subsequent visits have been weekly, including today.  I popped in after lunch time.  The store was dead.  I could almost hear crickets chirping.  New additions in the way of samples, brands that are not normally carried in store (perhaps samples from suppliers?), prototypes, damaged clothing, mismatched accessories, #yougetthepicture.  I'm wondering when (or if) actual worthwhile merchandise will be added!?  It's supposed to go on for another 11 days.  If these last visits were any indication, I'd say save your time and shop elsewhere.  Definitely do not waste gas coming from anywhere over a bridge solely for this sale, you'll be really disappointed.  I won't make an effort to stop by 'just' for this...however, I've been known to frequent Winners and H&M (tee-hee), so am in the area often.

Update: (November 24, 2014)
The sale was extended into November...until the end of the month (or so I've been told).  I went back in on Friday afternoon (Nov. 21) and there were a few more items of note.  I spied some of the Wilfred Rousseau cardigans that had gone on sale online on Thanksgiving...they had few of the same ones at the Warehouse sale listed for $59.99.

These TNA wool zip sweaters caught my eye.  Cute, but a little short for my taste.

Also, they received a shipment of Wilfred Parkas in size Medium (only)...$199.99.  There were a few at the front of the store, as well as a rolling rack full of them near the entrance to the fitting room.

Bath & Body Works New Bottle Design

If you're a fan of the hand soap collection at Bath & Body Works, you may have noticed that they launched a new bottle shape in Spring 2014.

The "Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps" and "Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps" now come in a new bottle: it's shorter and wider than the old design, and slightly larger in overall volume than the previous bottle design.  They've also changed the formulas and eliminated the anti-bacterial element to the hand soaps, which I am happy about.  (Read more about why it might be good to avoid anti-bacterial soaps)

If you're like us, you might have a metal slip-cover / soap sleeve for the (now discontinued) "old" bottle shape.  I was looking at buying a new one, since there are so many more options...they have silver, bronze, antique, etc options for the new sleeves, but I didn't really want to spend $5.50 for a new cover.  Well, don't fret!   A friendly tip I learned this week with regards to the new bottle designs at Bath and Body Works...they will gladly exchange your old bottle sleeve for a new one at no cost!  This was told to me by an employee at the Willowbrook Mall (Langley, BC) location, and said that all of the locations will honour this policy.  She also recommended leaving your old sleeve in your car for when you next happen to pop into a Bath & Body Works, that way you'll be prepared!  A great tip!

*****UPDATE: As of Fall 2014, Bath & Body Works Canada will now only be giving a 30% off discount towards the purchase of a new soap cover/sleeve when you bring in your older style sleeve.  I was a little dismayed by this (November 24, 2014) when I finally brought in my own sleeve to exchange it for a new one.  They just never seemed to have silver ones in stock, until the holidays arrived!  Oh well!  Hope you got yours while it lasted!

Late Night Costco Ramblings

If you're in Newton, and in need of sunscreen or life jackets (random, I know)...pop into the Costco (Newton)!!**

Kinseys Sunscreen (2-pack with bonus sunscreen stick) is on clearance $9.97 (reg. $19.99)...and the sprays don't expire until Apr.2017.  Limited quantities (in the aisles, near Coppertone and shampoos).  I generously left at least an entire case (like 24 bottles/12 packs), lol (after I helped a friend stock up for her upcoming sunny holidays).

Also, lifejackets / life vests (pfd's) were marked down too!  I ended up buying a pack since my son's is only rated up to 90lbs, and my husband's is likely expired.  Costco sells the 4-pack of 90lb+ rated life vests...Jessica had seen them marked down to $59.97 so I hurried on over and BAM! ...they have been reduced further to $39.97 ;) (for FOUR!?!)
The four pack is bundled in a blue nylon zip case in the aisles near the rest of the summer gear.  A great bargain!

**I've been told that Langley is sold out of the Kinesys Sunscreen, YMMV.  

***Update: 5 more cases of sunscreen have been added to the shelf today 8/13/14!!

Camo Crush & New Sandals

I have a slight style crush/obsession with washed out camo as of late...and whilst shopping in the boys' dept. at Winners for my son this week, I stumbled on some boys sweatpants and thought....hmmmm, these look awesome!  Wonder if they'll, that is!!  Nothing makes you feel better than fitting into pants sized for a 10-12 year old, lol.
The sweats fit like an ankle crop and have the perfect faded look!  And only $19.99 :) 
As a sidebar, I also picked up some Birk-inspired Sam & Libby sandals this week at Target online!  Reg. $29.99, I found them on sale for $23.99...they also come in silver.  They are surprisingly comfy!!
They're modelled after Giambatista Valli's studded sandals ($800+).  A bit of rock and roll and a bit of Birkenstock comfort all rolled into one.  Note: they've been in (and out) of stock for a few weeks, currently appears unavailable...keep an eye out for them and hopefully they'll be back in stock.  I noticed they had restocked and ordered them quick!

Betula by BIRKENSTOCK at various COSTCO Locations!

Thanks to a tip from a friend, we found "Gizeh" Betula brand sandals made by Birkenstock at the local Costco (Langley) for $39.99!

Birkenstock (est. 1774) is a parent company to Betula (est.1994) and aesthetically, the sandals are very similar, with overall quality and price as their major differences. The Betula branch is a more accessible Birkenstock branded sandal, reaching the masses, especially at the price that Costco is selling them for.

Check your local Costco for the Gizeh toe-sandal in genuine nubuck leather. They are a bargain at $39.99 and come in two colours: brown nubuck and bone/beige nubuck.

One of the Lofty Goods' writers picked up a pair today and her feet (and wallet) are going to be happy this spring and summer! 

Happy Shopping!

HUNTER Boots spotted for $68

Thanks to a hot tip from our fellow shopping friend, some tall Hunter boots have been spotted on MTFs online site for $68.  (These guys sell Costco merchandise...and these are likely stock that have been moved into clearance mode...)

Free shipping if you ship to the store for pick up (South Surrey, etc).

Limited colour selection and sizing....things are disappearing quickly as there were black boots avail in size 8M/9F only a couple hours ago, but alas, they're gone!  Check here for remaining colours and sizes:

Aritzia North Shore Warehouse Sale

One of our favourite shopping stops is hosting a Warehouse Sale and it's going on NOW!  Aritzia's North Shore Warehouse Sale started on Wed. Feb.19th, but goes on until March 2nd...with a promise that new items are being added it's not too late!!

The Warehouse Sale is happening at Park Royal Shopping Centre, located in the North Mall (London Drugs), beside the Gap.

Warehouse Sale
Wilfred pale blue/grey silk top, reg. $92, now $39.

Talula jean jacket, medium/dark wash, reg. $98, now $49.  

Was it worth the trip?  Eh, it was a sale, and well, we love sales.  Perhaps the summer Warehouse Sale (usually August) has more merchandise?  Guess we'll see... It was only worth it when you hit the rest of Park Royal afterwards.  What a beautiful shopping destination. We also scored some great finds at J.Crew (additional 40%off sale items).  Happy hunting!
