*Deal of the Week* BOGO at Macy's + Free Shipping!

Oh, you guys are going to love this *Deal of the Week*! This weekend, buy one pair of shoes from Macy's and get the second pair 50% off! That's right, it's just like your favorite BOGO sale from Payless, but this time you can take advantage of the wide assortment of designer-name shoes at Macy's (regular-price shoes only apply). Style Bard faves are these Harajuku Lovers 'Laila' slingback platform sandals--they're a totally original and playful look for Spring! PLUS, you'll receive FREE SHIPPING when you spend $75 or more (and I find it hard to see how you could not with this amazing sale). So that's two pairs of new shoes, a built-in 50% off coupon, AND Free Shipping from Macy's--this weekend only. What are you waiting for?? I'll see you at the mall.

20% Off Orders Over $99 from Adidas

Wow, what the heck kind of week is it for shoe sales? After double posts on Tuesday and Wednesday, on Thursday I hear about this great offer from Adidas I just have to tell you about. So it's a two-for-one Thursday as well! Here's the deal: spend $99 on Adidas shoes, and receive 20% off your entire order. Just enter code FEBSPECIAL in the promo code box when you go to check out. That goes for women's shoes, men's shoes and kid's shoes, so I've decided to feature these cute girl's sneakers, the 'Superstar 2G Ultra' in Pink (they're also available in Black). Plus, there's Free Shipping on order over $99, so you can get your new shoes order at 20% off and shipped for free!

Last Day to Save 30% Off New Shoes from Old Navy

Today is the last day to save 30% off your order from the New Arrivals at Old Navy. Spring shoes include new flats, sandals and wedges. Style Bard faves are these Bronze Mid-Heel Pumps, now only $19.50! They're fun and flirty, and I think they'd be just the right touch with a cute evening dress or paired with jeans. They also come in Black, Silver and Gold! You'll definitely see metallics mixed in with florals and animal print in 2009, so invest in a fun pair of visually interesting shoes to give your wardrobe that extra sparkle year-round. After tomorrow, these shoes go back up to $34.50, so if you like 'em, shop now!

10-Hour Bluefly Shoe Sale

Well, how about that? After a Tuesday two-for-one, we're going to have a Wednesday two-for-one as well! That's because I just received notice that Bluefly is having an out-of-the-blue (pardon the pun) shoe sale, where a handful of designer name brand shoes such as Theory, Stuart Weitzman, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Kate Spade are only $99.99! This sale expires in ten hours, at midnight tonight (Eastern). Style Bard faves in this sale? These Nanette Lepore 'Naughty Knot' wedge sandals. I think the look is ideal for Spring, with the scripted pattern mimicing the animal prints and unique patterns you'll be seeing everywhere come March. At $99.99, you'll be saving 79% off the original price! I literally just set aside my work to post this sale for y'all so you'd better scoot on over there and get yourself some name-brand shoes on the cheap! If you do, be sure to tell me about your steal so I can utterly envy you.

20% Off All Shoes at!

Save 20% off any pair of shoes that strikes your fancy at! No, really; that's the sale. You make it happen, you save big on your favorites. Just remember to use code HEART when you're about to check out. And yes, you can buy more than one pair of shoes per order and still make it happen. For example, if you're interested in esapdrilles for Spring, check out a wide selection of high and low-heel wedges and sandals in prices ranging from $31.99 to these high-end 'Amelie' pink suede espadrilles by Ugg (available in Rose, Blue, Black or Chocolate). Of course, there are also high heels, strappy sandals, ballet flats, loafers, sneakers, boots and everything in between. You're sure to find what you're looking for and save big while this 20% off Spring shoes sale lasts.

Save 20% Off Banana Republic Shoes

It's a Tuesday two-fer! I just couldn't keep this sale from you, and it's expiring tomorrow, so here's a second sale to get you through the day. When you spend $100, you can save 20% off your order of Banana Republic shoes. Just enter code BRSPRING when you're about to check out. Ease into Spring's warmer weather with these 'Helen' metallic buckle flats with a demore peep-toe. I love their flash and shine, coupled with a practical buckle and the sexy glimpse of toenail polish. If it's a little chilly, just pair 'em with tights. You'll be saving almost $20 on these if you shop before this sale ends!

Save 20% on Sandals from PacSun

It's about time to start shopping for your Spring sandals. If you're looking for some casual shoes or flip-flops for a spring break vacation, hitting the beach or just going for long walks in the beautiful weather, then check out the sandals from PacSun. When you spend $75 you can save 15% off your entire order and when you spend $100 you can save 20% off your order. Of course their sandals cost nowhere near that much, so you can buy a few pair for the family or grab a swimsuit to match your new spring sandals. Style Bard faves are these O'Neill 'Bellows' sandals in white with gold trim. They're just the right balance of dressy and comfortable for spending a day in the sun and then resting your feet and relaxing on a restaurant terrace in the evening, enjoying a glass of wine. Sounds like a perfect day to me! Isn't it amazing how the look of a shoe can inspire you?

Spring Preview Sale - 15% Off Shoes at Bluefly

Bluefly shoppers can go online to take advantage of 15% off select Spring styles as part of a Spring Preview Sale. With additional discounts already in place on the site, that brings entire savings up to 65% off. Along with the traditional sandals, platforms, wedges, espadrilles, florals and bright colors of Spring shoe styles, I'm seeing a lot of animal print as a mainstay in footwear even in the upcoming warmer months. Get in on the trend without going overboard with touches of print, texture and pattern in your shoe, like these Kenneth Cole New York suede snakeskin 'Nite Life' sandals, now 57% off in the Spring Preivew shoe sale. Grab up the Spring styles you like before they return to regular pricing!

New Shoe Styles from Gina Shoes

Everyone knows how the Style Bard likes to support small boutiques and shops online. Well, Gina shoes are one of my favorite small-scale in-the-know shoe designers, and I'm pleased to share with you the new Spring 2009 line which just hit the online store. Gina specializes in flashy dress-up heels and bridal shoes with Swarovski crystals, but you can also find subdued heels for a more everyday look. These gems rarely go on sale, and they're a bit of a splurge, but I just love to look at all the new styles, like these crystal-lined Cinderella-esque 'Gita' peep-toe heels. I think they'd be great for a special occasion, such as a formal dance, gala or wedding. Plus, every three months you can also enter to win a free pair of shoes or handbag from their site. Check out the 'Competition' tab for more information.

*Deal of the Week* $5 Off Any Shoebuy Boots!

I love Shoebuy because you can shop by browsing about 50 different shoe categories, shop by brand name or choose a color, size, heel height or price range. It's really easy to find exactly what you're looking for. You can also just hit 'View All' and sort through hundreds and hundreds of fabulous options at clearance prices. Today we're looking at Boots, because you can instantly save $5.00 off any pair of boots on Shoebuy for a limited time (this includes rain boots, which you may need during Spring downpour!). Style Bard faves are these Born 'Cony' boots in suede for the bark-colored diamond harlequin pattern. They remind me of a cross between a riding boot and a fashion boot, and they're infinitely more interesting that a solid black or brown shoe. They also look really comfortable, and I'm a fan of Born shoes. Whichever boots you choose, just head to checkout to see your $5 off discount apply.

Take $10 Off New Shoes from Macy's

This one's a sale for residents of Florida and Puerto Rico only--sorry, other states and territories! When you spend $50 on shoes, save $10 instantly. Just bring in the coupon below (this will require printing and in-store purchasing) to save big. This weekend is a great time to shop and use this shoe coupon, as clearance is an additional 40-50% off, making total savings up to 85% off! Usually I don't include regional sales, coupons and in-store exclusive purchases on Style Bard Shoes, but because I live in Florida I just couldn't help myself with this one! I'm really loving these 'Jenicca' sandals from Nine West. They've got a retro vibe and a lot of color going on, but I know my fashionistas in Florida and Puerto Rico can pull them off with their spring looks. If you grab any great steals at a local mall, please let me know so I can run out and steal your look (just kidding)(...maybe).

Save $15 on New Shoes from Avenue

Avenue, the store for women's plus sizes 14-32, is having a spend-to-save sale. That is, you can save $10 when you spend $60 or save $15 when you spend $85 or more. Avenue doesn't only sell plus-size apparel, they also sell shoes in large sizes to fit women of every shape and size. For example, if you're one of those ladies who has a terrible time finding boots that not only fit her soles, but her calves as well, then try the Cloudwalkers 'Zita' wide-calf boots in Brown. They go up to a size 13! Not only that, but they're also now on sale for 50% off, making them only $39.99. Three other styles of boots-ankle and knee-high, Black and Brown--are also 50% off for a limited time. And check out the other sandals, wedges and heels in large sizes and wide widths to save up to $15.

These are also available in Bourbon, but other colors and styles by Rockport are also deeply discounted.

New shoe arrivals for Spring are now up to 40% off, like these Christian Louboutin 'Materna' wedges. I love the bright blue color, and the open toe that celebrates the warmth of Spring.

Can your man pull off these dapper 'Mercer Cap Toe Oxfords' by Stacy Adams? If he can, I highly suggest rushing out right now and grabbing them up at the very fair price of $59.99. I do love a man who can work a quirky style and break out of neutrals with his accessories! Shown here in Brandy, these men's shoes are also available in Black, Sunburst, Grey, Green Ash and Navy.

FREE T-Shirt with Running Shoe Purchase

The Walking Company is known for comfort shoes, but they've recently extended their men's and women's lines to include brands like Adidas, Asics, Brooks, New Balance and Ecco. Now, when you buy any pair of performance sneakers, you'll receive a men's or women's t-shirt for free! They have cute slogans like 'Walk On' and 'Fit Happens' and they're perfect to wear while you work out. Everyone likes free gifts, (especially the Style Bard, which is why I'm tempted even though I completely detest sneakers on principle), and if you're in the market for athletic shoes, then why not look at the extensive options from the most comfortable sources? My faves are these Adidas Microbounce sneakers in Grey and Pink. The one pair of sneakers I own are Adidas and they do me well; plus these are exceptionally cute, from the feminine pink accents to the fun name (microbounce!)--and, they're designed for running and walking performance with quick energy return and stabilization. Also available in Orange.

BOGO is Back at Payless!

It's time again for BOGO at Payless! That means when you pick one pair of new cute shoes, your second pair is half off its original price. I know that my first pair would be these super-cute 'Hudson Wedges' in springtime blue (called Light Teal on the site). I own another pair of blue wedges from Payless and they're very comfortable, and I receive compliments on them all the time. But those are getting old and I think it's time for something trendy, with a little hardware on the toe. For my second choice? Probably a cute pair of flats, but I'll have to let you know when I go shoe shopping!

Goodness knows it's still chilly out there in the North, (it's gotta be if it's still chilly down here in Florida!), so if you're looking for an affordable way to keep your tootsies warm, I'd recommend going for these Emu insulated boots, which are now half off at PacSun.

But there's also an ankle-high style; both come in the colors Brown, Chestnut and Black. Check out the entire selection of sale boots before sizes start selling out.

*Deal of the Week* 30% Off Spring Shoes at Payless

If you're already looking for Spring styles, check out Payless this weekend. It's the last few days you can save up to 30% off Spring shoes, and preview some of the styles you'll be seeing come March. Now, I'll be the first to admit it. I always check out Payless for playful, trendy shoes I might want to wear for one season and then discard. They're affordable enough to try something new, without feeling penny-foolish if the look suddenly nosedives. We all know what it's like to fall out of love with the shoes in a few weeks. My sale faves are the Dexter Parker Buckle Mocs. I've been trying to find loafers for almost nine months, and I can't find the right balance of cute and casual and cheap. But these might just be them, especially for only $22.99! And I'm lovin' that slight point on the toe... There are also wedges, espadrilles, flats and sandals--so go check it out before the shoes you'll want when the weather warms up return to their normal prices!

Today Only - Men's Shoes on Sale at 6PM

Today's shoe sale is for the men in the audience. After all, ladies aren't the only ones who need clean new shoes for Spring. How about some Deer Stags "better than leather" slip-ons that usually retail for $59.95, on sale today only for $19.95? Not bad, huh? This style is called 'Acceptance' which desperately tempts me to make some kind of joke about Valentine's Day, but I'll avoid getting cheeky. Maybe. They're designed with a custom comfort system as well as non-slip traction soles. I like the clean, sleek style--and the enticing ease of slipping them on and kicking them off. If you're as lazy as I and you've come to acceptance with that (couldn't help myself), then these are the new Spring shoes for you, gentlemen.
