S-A-L-E...My Favorite Four Letter Word

I got an e-mail from Lucy, the women's activewear store, announcing their end of season sale. An additional 50% off of already marked down prices. Lucy's stuff is basic, but high quality. And expensive. My philosophy for purchasing workout wear is that I won't spend more than around $10 for something I'm going to end up sweating in. Maybe up to $20 or so for yoga pants or a track jacket. Usually my visits to Lucy have me zooming straight to the sale racks in back and then right back out the door empty-handed.

But 50% off the already marked down price? I was pretty sure I wouldn't walk away empty-handed today. So I trekked out to the Century City location in search of new yoga wear. And this time I left with a little orange Lucy bag stuffed with a brand new outfit. First off, the top. It's a pointelle, cap sleeved T-shirt. The website says the color is "zinnia." It looks peach to me. Maybe salmon. Or cantaloupe. OK, zinnia. Whatever... Originally retailed for $34, marked down to $22.99 and then 50% off that equals $11.50. Just a tad more than $10. Sue me...

Next, a pair of Lucy's Ideal Dance pants. Although I won't be doing any dancing in them--just downward facing dog...These I got in "olive" although they look more "moss green" to me. (Can you tell someone had the really BIG box of Crayola crayons when they were a kid?) These retailed for $54 originally, marked down to $36.99 and with 50% off--I got them for $18.50. So that's a whole new yoga outfit for $30! Whoohoo--how cool is that?!!!

They also had really nice track jackets (in brown) marked down to $15 after 50% off, a lot of capri length pants (if that's your style--they don't really do it for me...) and even some cute, striped Splendid camis. The sale goes through Sunday so if you have a Lucy near you, I suggest you check out it soon before the selection gets too picked over. I can hardly wait for yoga class tomorrow night!


  1. That's so good to know. My bosses daughter shops there so I KNEW it was out of my price range. But that's great prices. I'll have to try and check it out tomorrow or Saturday. You rock!

  2. Thanks, sweetie! Hope you find something good!
