Buy One, Get One 50% Off at Macy's!

Wow, BOGO on shoes at Macy's...that's kind of like a dream come true, isn't it? Especially if you've got a Macy's card, ahem. Anyway, it's pretty simple: buy two pairs of shoes, get the lower-priced of the two for 50% off. Some exclusions apply, but there's still a huge assortment of qualifying items and you're sure to find two pair to love, and save big bucks. And the reduction happens immediately at checkout, so you don't have to worry about codes or rebates or anything. This deal is exclusively online (not a problem for us, right?) for a limited time. Which pair would I choose for the first? These Matisse 'Splendid' flats in cheery Yellow, also available in Orange, Black and Brown. Now this is the kind of loafer I need to brighten up my casual wardrobe. Although I like the Orange ones too...and it is BOGO, after all, hmmm...

Monday's Weekly Deals from 6PM

Going on right now at 6PM, you can get all Nike, Skechers, AK Anne Klein and Aerosoles shoes up to 70% off for a limited time! And I think we'll be seeing a new flush of sales following on the heels (teehee) of these later in the week, about which I will keep you updated, of course. I'm a big fan of Anne Klein's office shoes, as they're sophisticated but not flashy, they last a long time and are very comfortable to wear for eight hours or more. So I'm going to recommend these 'Macone' heels at 52% off, which remind me of a very similar low-heel pair I currently own in black and white.

$20 Off Boots from Aldo

Check out the prices on boots from Aldo right now. Go on, I'll wait. Pretty good, right? As someone who has not yet exercised her right to buy up to two new pairs of knee-high boots every winter, I am very excited by the prospect of doing so for less than $200. That's because Aldo's current boot prices reflect a $20 discount. You don't have to do anything: no minimum purchases, no promo code. Just buy them at this price before they go back up; and trust me, they will. My current faves? Well, it's hard to choose, but I think of all the options I'd have to go for these 'Flosand' boots in Red because well, they're red knee-high boots. It's kind of a no-brainer. And they're now only $79.98. Don't worry, if Red isn't your thing, these also come in Black, Grey, Navy Blue and even Purple!

If you shop Banana Republic, Gap or Old Navy and add shoes from Piperlime to your order, then those super-savings Piperlime shoes will qualify your order from the other store ship for free, too! Check out any of the four sites to see how easy it is to combine orders and combine deals. Style Bard faves: these perfectly posh Pucci pumps (even though I tend to prefer Pucci prints with a little more blue in them). I have a feeling a lotta people are gonna get a lotta their holiday shopping out of the way in one fell shopping cart swoop today.

*Deal of the Week* Save 10% Off at Shoe Parlor

Sometimes name dropping is crude, but sometimes it makes just the right impression, like when you visit Shoe Parlor and say you're a friend of the Style Bard, and they give you 10% off your new shoes. That's right, just pick your faves (mine are these Frye 'Ava' button-down ankle boots in Black and Brown--and they're already $100 off!) and then enter code STYLEBARDSP at check out to see 10% of the price magically disappear.

Free Shipping on Shoes from Macy's

It's a Thursday two-for-one! Actually, with the holidays coming up, you can expect to see a lot more days filled with two great shoe sales, because there aren't enough days in the week to keep up with them all. Your second deal today is Free Shipping from Macy's. If your order totals over $99, just enter code FESTIVEFS and it'll be shipped straight to your front door for free. That means if you buy these $110 Hush Puppies 'Adeline' booties for someone you love (even if it's you...hey, we're all about loving yourself over here at Style Bard Shoes) you won't have to worry about gas money, mall crowds or long lines. I love these because they're a sturdy boot by a comfort brand, disguised as ultra-cute trendy booties, and they're also available in Black and Brown. This is only good for two more days, so get some of your holiday shopping out of the way while it lasts.

Save $60 on New Shoes from Shoebuy

Now when you apply for the Shoebuy RevolutionCard, you'll receive $20 off your first three pairs of shoes over $50. All in all, that's $60 off $150, which is not at all a bad deal. They don't have to be bought all at once, not that I fear any of Style Bard's readers would have a problem doing so! My first purchase would be these 'Kline' loafers by Franco Sarto, which are now on sale for $68.95. I'm on a mission to dress up my casual look, and I think changing out my tired old flats and flip-flops for a preppy pair of Bordeaux-colored loafers is the right place to start. Visit their website to find out how you can apply for the RevolutionCard and this great deal.

It's a great time to order some new shoes from leading brands like Cole Haan, Johnston & Murphy, Allen Edmonds and Jos. A. Bank. Or how about buying dad some cozy warm moccasin slippers for the holidays? Made of shearling and leather, they're now on sale for only $32.99. You know his pair from last year are pretty threadbare by now; it's the perfect winter gift.

But who knows what you'll see available for 40% off next week! It's a great spot to keep an eye on for savings, especially if you wear narrow, wide or plus size shoes (AAA-WWW and 6-16), which is Designer Shoes' specialty.

*Deal of the Week* 75% Off at Macy's

Macy's is like the *Deal of the Week* heavyweight champ 'round these parts. They keep having the most fabulous weekend sales. Hmmm no wonder that's the one credit card I can't keep paid off. Especially since on top of store-wide savings up to 75% off, you get an addition 15% off shoes this weekend when you use your Macy's card. Yup, additional. A sales associate will make the discount for you in stores, and online you can use the code EXTRAOFF when you go to checkout. Now, we all know the Style Bard is not exactly sneaker-friendly, but since we're all about to stuff our faces and, if you're me, follow the holiday buffets with long periods sitting around on your bum in long car rides or at the airport, I figure we might all get a little inspired to head outdoors or to the gym to work some of those gravy-induced calories off. Of course, working up a sweat doesn't mean you have to look like you're wearing blocks on your feet. How about these sleek, patent-trimmed Reaction Kenneth Cole 'Sixy Lady' sneaks? I love the element of fashion, with pink-and-black coloring and even a hidden wedge. Yay! I love that I can still have my height even in sneakers. (Okay, so maybe they're not for heavy-duty work-out routines, but after all, who are we kidding?) Check 'em out while you can get 'em on sale.

As part of a Veteran's Day Sale, you can now buy one pair of Lugz brand shoes and get the next pair for 50% off! You can buy a pair for you and your hubby, or for your son and husband, etc!

Win FREE SHOES from Style Bard and Lulu's!

Last month, Style Bard was giving away great prizes just for signing up to the new Style Bard News mailing list (located in the sidebar). This month, it's your turn to win at Style Bard Shoes!

The Prize:

The lovely ladies at Lulu's have been very generous, and they're offering Style Bard Shoes readers $100 Gift Certificate to so that you can pick out your FAVORITE shoes!

To Win:

Throughout the month of November, simply leave a comment on any post at Style Bard or Style Bard Shoes. Every day (not every comment) you enter, you'll earn another entry in the raffle. On Monday, December 1st, 2008, I'll draw one winning name. Email addresses must be included for your comment to be considered so that I can contact you regarding your prize.

Piece of cake, right? It would be a shame not to enter! My favorites from Lulu's? These Jeffrey Campbell 'Show 2' Suede and Snake pumps:

I love the splash of metallic in the snakeskin topping the sultry winter look of the simple seude base. This just scream "Holiday Party" to me. Lulu's also offers boots, sandals, flats and plenty of other fun heels.

Take a peek and start thinking about which pair (or pairs!) you'd buy with $100. I'd love to hear what you like and why!

*Deal of the Week* Jessica Bennett Boots

Jessica Bennett Griswald (Women's)

Maybe it's just my recent obsession with Sons of Anarchy (mmm, Jax), but I am seriously attracted to these badass boyish boots by Jessica Bennett. From Shoebuy's sale section, they're now 50% off their original price, and the site gives them great reviews for style and comfort. This is the sort of look I'd like to parade around in this winter---maybe with some lace and loose layers, just to fem it up? Or maybe with a tailored leather jacket to tie look together...

Election Day Shoes

It's Election Day, and that means it's time to exercise your right to vote! Now, I know polling lines can be a hassle; I early voted and stood in line for an hour and a half. So I thought that these comfy, patriotic 'Virgo' flats were absolutely ideal to represent what you want to be wearing when you go to vote. Made of blue suede and splashed with red and white accents, they're perfectly all-American, even though they're by French Sole. Are you dressing up in red, white and blue today?
