Bass shoes are now up to 85% off at 6PM. Sale styles include options for men, women and children. In fact, kid's shoes are all priced at or below $14.95.

Pick out any of Old Navy's new shoes for Spring, and you can save 15% off the total cost of your order.

Last Day to Save 20% Off Banana Republic Shoes

Today is the last day that you can save 20% off shoes from Banana Republic. All you have to do is spend $75 on merchandise and then use code BRTAKE20 when you're checking out online. Another option to shopping through the website is that you can find a wider variety of not only styles but also sizes than you can when shopping in stores. Banana Republic shoes are crafted for the woman who spends a lot of time on her feet, with cushioned foot-beds and breathable leather to enhance wearability. They also keep in mind seasons and trends, with regularly updated looks. Style Bard workplace faves include these 'Luisa' open-toe slingbacks which come in three color options, and can only be found online.

Closeout Sale on Boots

Boot Barn is having a Closeout Sale on two of its previously popular brands: Ariat and Harley-Davidson. All styles from both of these brands are marked down to ridiculous sale prices. I'm pretty sure that all sales are final, so you may want to be careful about sizing. Although these boots are not particular my style, I could definitely work with these 'Darla' motorcycle boots in my wardrobe, although I'd much rather have a Harley-Davidson. There are plenty of other styles--from work boots to cowboy boots--available on closeout, so check out the fabulous prices while supplies last.

Up to $75 Off Victoria's Secret Shoes

You still have a few days left to save money instantly when you shop for shoes from Victoria's Secret. When you spend $100, you'll see $15 taken off your order; or you can save $30 or $75 on orders of $150 or $250. The more you shop the more you save, of course. Just use code SPRING10 when you're checking out to see discounts apply. Style Bard faves are these 'Triple-Strap Platforms' by Report Signature. While the standard LBS (little black shoe) option in the background look all right, you know the ones I want are definitely the eye-catching Fuchsia/Orange. Looks more like purple than pink to me, but why be picky? Shop before this deal expires and you can have these leather beauties in your closet for $75 less than they will cost you next week.

Single Shoe Service at Nordstrom

So there are obviously numerous reasons why individuals may wish to purchase only one shoe at a time, but I believe Nordstrom's Single Shoe Service is the first time that I've actually seen this advertised in a pronounced way. Which I think is a smart marketing move. Not only can shoppers with unique shoe needs have them fulfilled, but Nordstrom is able to get rid of stray shoe merchandise while turning a profit. Single Shoes are only $26 from the select items available in their warehouse. You can fill out a form by visiting the website, stating your needs and purposes in order to get the correct shoe you need. For those with single shoe requirements, this allows them to skip the specialty stores and actually lay claim to designer names at an exceptionally reduced price. Style Bard supports this clever and mutually beneficial solution; so way to go, Nordstrom.

Take that tax refund and go stimulate the economy a little by treating yourself to some new summer fashions. I know, I know; after a year like last year, you ought to stash it away and be fiscally responsible. But just one little pair of new shoes won't really break the bank, now will it? With great sales and deals for the new season, (including BOGO at Payless), it's not like you have to spend a lot to walk away with some extra confidence and style inspiration for Spring. ~SB

Last Day for 50% Off Aldo Clearance Boots

Today is the last day you can receive an additional 50% off already-discounted boots at Aldo. To qualify, all you have to do is shop; that's right, no minimums are necessary nor any shopping codes. You may think it's too late to be shopping for boots this season, but it's really not. There's no better way to skip through spring than by bearing your arms and shoulders in a fun sundress but staying warm with some knee-high boots. It's not a juxtaposed look that everyone can pull off, but if you can, more power to you. And that's not to say you can't wear boots all year long anyway; I certainly do. A little trick learned in Florida, where there's really no excuse for knee-high boots unless you make one. Style Bard faves are these 'Eakle' boots, which I originally covered back in January when they went on sale for $200. Well guess what? They're now $77.49. So if you thought they were hot back then, you'd better get them while they last at this phenomenal price.

*Deal of the Week* New Markdowns at ShopBop - While Supplies Last

Saturday Note from Style Bard
Last night was a lesson in new shoes wearing for my guy friend as we trolled the streets of Chelsea in NYC. He was wearing new shoes while knowing we'd be walking around! Apparently girls are much wiser than boys about these things, but at least I was able to bring Band-Aid Advanced Healing Blister Cushions into his life. I always have two of these in my purse, and you should too. ALWAYS. Just a little Saturday tip from Style Bard. ~SB

*Deal of the Week* New Markdowns at ShopBop

ShopBop always has amazing merchandise on sale for 30%-70% off, but I love when new markdowns are added so that you can be the first to scope out new on-sale looks and grab them in your size before they sell out. Because all 70% off merchandise is final sale, and once your size is gone, it's gone. Nothing aches so much as missing out on your favorite designer shoes because you were late to the sale. Fresh discounts include these sick Z-Project Platform Pumps by L.A.M.B. They're kind of blowing my mind; not just the crazy angles and architecture, but also the contrast of the 'f--- me pumps' edginess with the soft sheen of satin. Amazing--and now 30% off if you get to them in time!

BOGO Sale at Payless

Iiiiiiiiiiiit's back! That's right, it's time to kick off yet another wonderful BOGO sale to launch the season at Payless. You know the drill by now: buy one pair of shoes, get your second pair for 50% off! It's the perfect excuse to drag a friend along shoe shopping, IMHO. Of course, proper BOGO etiquette means you must split the difference of the savings between you--establish rules in advance so you don't start a ruckus in the shoe aisle. New arrivals that Style Bard can't wait to check out in person include these 'Camilla' flowered ballet flats by Dexter. To me, these shoes are the penultimate girly shoe to pair with your favorite skirts and sundresses, and the twee flowers with the metallic studs just shout Spring.

April Fools!!!

As many of you may have already guessed, yesterday's ode to clogs was definitely a cheeky little prank on my part. Not that I can knock a sturdily made comfort shoe; certainly, they have their place among gardeners, dental hygienists, pharmacists and professional dog-walkers. However, for the most part, I'd recommend splurging on a sturdy pair of sneakers or comfort shoes from one of the other great brands at The Walking Company. Your options include these 'Un.Sycamore' mary-janes from Unstructured by Clarks, which provide the same support and structure without the ugly, boxy appearance of clogs. They're also created to be lightweight, breathable and cushioned for softness in every step. They're also now on sale for 25% off their original price!

Style Bard Loves Clogs

Nothing says Spring more than a pair of colorful-yet-clunky clogs by Sanita. Second only to Croc sandals and Ugg boots, Sanita clogs are my favorite style of shoe because the open back artfully showcases the sexiest part of a woman's body--her heel--while offering a feminist hint of androgyny with the squared toe. That's yet another reason why clogs are so great--because they're reminiscent of the mullet. Business in the front, party in the back. There's really nothing you can say bad about a great pair of clogs. Especially those that come in amazing floral patterns that are sure to blend with almost anything in your wardrobe. And surely this company knows what they're talking about since Sanita is, after all, the self-proclaimed "Original Danish Clog" (no matter how many historians and anthropologists may beg to differ). Plus, the bright and seasonal 'Sonja' style is now only $134.95! That's practically a steal for the hardworking fashionista.
