Memorial Day Sales Start Early - 25% Off Banana Republic Shoes

For Memorial Weekend, Banana Republic is offering 25% off all orders of at least $100. To qualify, just meet the limit and use code SAVE25. Although this whole holiday weekend should prove fruitful for the thrifty shopper, it never hurts to get an extra day of savings by starting Thursday. These 'Dylan' peep-toe espadrilles tie together your office ensemble but can also be worn for a more casual weekend outing. They come in Black, Cement and Walnut--and some sizes are selling out fast, so be sure to check them out before the end of this great sale.

Up to 65% Off L.A.M.B. Shoes

Style Bard adores the chic, edgy styling of L.A.M.B. This brand by Gwen Stefani always pushes fashion to its haute-ist borders with a rock star vibe. One day only, styles at 6PM are up to 65% off--which means that you can save on sky-high heels, sandals and booties. One of the best deals are these ornate 'Leslie' dress shoes, which may also be ideal for brides. Or anything really; they're the kind of shoes I believe you'd invent reasons to wear. They're now 50% off their original price, but only for a limited time.

$25 Back on PacSun Shoes

When you spend $50 at PacSun, you'll receive a card with $25 toward your next purchase. I know that sounds too good to be true, but I promise that I double-checked the deets! That means that if you buy these 'Sawyer' sandals by Report, you can guiltlessly go shopping again right away and buy a complementary sundress to show off your new shoes all Summer. Okay, well, those sandals alone don't quite meet the $50 limit but I'm sure you'll be able to pick up something extra to reach your target shopping goal--like maybe a more casual pair of thong flip-flops? With plenty of discounts going on site-wide, I have absolutely no doubt you'll find something. After all, this deal really is too good to miss.

BOGO Sale Begins at Payless

It's time for BOGO at Payless! That's right, buy any shoes and get your next pair for 50% off. This is my favorite time to splurge on cheap summer trends that may not last more than a season. Like these Stella Gladiator Sandals in Silver, which with your savings will be well under $20. And it's also my favorite time to grab a gal pal and take her shopping too. But remember BOGO etiquette--you have to split the difference of the savings! (And it's perfectly okay to just buy two (or more!) pairs for yourself...)

Saturday Note from Style Bard
Last week I finally went out and bought myself a new stand-alone wardrobe for my shoes. The infamous shoe armoire is back in business! Just the thing I needed to make sense of the space I have in my apartment in NYC. Some city-dwellers choose to live in posh neighborhoods with apartments the size of shoeboxes, while I live out in Brooklyn but get to fill my apartment with shoeboxes! To each their own. Pics soon. ~SB

Free Shipping on Macy's Shoes

When you spend $75 at Macy's, you'll receive Free Shipping on your entire order. All you have to do is use code JOURNEY when you're ready to check out. With recent new shipments on every trend for Spring, you can choose between a variety of wedges, espadrilles and sandals from designer names you love. Style Bard faves are actually these somewhat simple white and metallic thong sandals, 'Maben' by Sofft. That's because Sofft is known for creating extremely comfortable shoes with padded footbeds and well-constructed arches that are going to keep your feet extremely happy through long days of wear. And I think that these shoes are designed to go with almost any outfit, which means I'd have a hard time taking them off this Summer. So you might as well spend a little extra to ensure that those shoes you choose every single day are going to be comfy for your feet!

Happy Mother's Day!

The Walking Company offers nearly unlimited options for the stylish, on-the-go mom. All brands are known for their thoughtful, foot-friendly construct, while keeping in mind the fact that casual, comfortable shoes still deserve an element of artful design.

Style Bard's mother is emblematic of a woman who is always go-go-going, including long days at the office followed by rushing around to complete errands before she ever gets home to kick her shoes off and relax. The Walking Company has plenty of styles to cover days like this; 'Fashion Comfort' options include these 'Gabby' pumps by Sofft, which offer a cushioned footbed and medium heel suitable for work and walking about. They're now on Final Clearance for half off their original price--which is also something my cost-cutting, smart-shopping mother would love!

Careful with Cuffed Sandals

Many shops are touting cuffed sandals as a must-have look for Spring/Summer. And many cuffed sandals are super cute. However, girls do need to be careful when choosing cuffed sandals, because the right height and width can make or break the entire line of your leg. For example, I like these 'Chainge' sandals by Steve Madden at Piperlime. The slight wedge gives your legs some lift while the t-strap in front will also create a visual line to give your body added elongation. That makes up for the potentially unflattering line of the cuff, and the ankle straps aren't so thick as to weigh you down. Plus, this style comes in three colors and is now on sale for $20 off.

When buying cuffed sandals, you've just got to be extra scrutinizing in front of the mirror before you lay down your credit card. And be sure to think about what you'll wear these sandals with; you don't want to buy something to pair with dresses that's going to conflict with the length of your hem. Trust me, it's not worth wearing a cute shoe if you just wind up looking short and stumpy. No fashion accessory is worth a dime if it looks pretty but does not help to enhance your beauty. And cankles? Are never your friend. You don't have to ignore this season's big trend, but just remember to be careful with cuffed sandals.

TOMS for Moms

TOMS is the increasingly popular shoe brand known for its charity initiative to provide shoes to children in need on a worldwide scale. For every pair of shoes you purchase, a pair of shoes is donated to an otherwise sole-less child. Now far be it from me to get all sentimental on you, but this is a cause I really care about. And it correlates nicely with a matter dear to you as well: your mother. If you buy TOMS shoes for mother's day, you can now save $5 off any purchase by using coupon code MOTHERS. You can also tell your mom that her gift put a pair of shoes on a needy child, so it's kind of like a charitable contribution in her name. And hey, no one loves children more than moms, right? And moms love new shoes. So I'm pretty sure this gift would go over pretty well, all things considered. Check out the latest lady's styles, including these 'Red Newport Cordones' for Spring 2010.

50% Off KORS by Michael Kors Sandals

I'm not often the type to spend more than $10 on flip-flops. Growing up in Florida, I quickly learned how easy it is to ruin sandals at the beach or lose one over the edge of the pier. Given that these shoes only complement the most casual of outfits, I don't entirely see the point of dropping big money on them. Maybe it's the weather or living in the city, but this year I'm craving a slightly nicer pair of casual shoes. I want to be comfortable and chic while I'm looking casual and walking around Manhattan--is that so much to ask? Right now, my eyes are on these 'Addi' Emerald Nappa sandals from KORS by Michael Kors. There's something about the green and gold that really appeals to me, despite the fact that these were my high school colors and therefore I must overcome certain dreadful associations in order to appreciate them. I also love the alternate option in White. They're more than I usually spend on thong sandals, but they are almost 50% off. What do you think--are they worth the price?
