Loving/Hating on this promotion. Love: (1) The deep discount. We rarely see this deep on full priced merchandise. Love (2): That it includes the Excursion Vest in Stripe. Love (3): That this applies to both online and in store purchases.
Hate (1): That the additional percent off sale is gone. Is this the case in stores too? Hate (2): Only applies to select merchandise. I would have loved it if they included the solid version of the Excursion Vest.
UPDATE: "Thanks!" to both Mel & GigiOfCa (in this post), as well as Alexandra, who let us know that stores are running an additional 50% off Final Sale (in addition to the 40% off select regular priced items)!!! Now that is how you do it! :)
Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? Is your local store still running a promotion on Final Sale merchandise? If so, please share! :)
