Shop on the Cheap
After holiday sales continue
By Kim Peiffer
Throughout January, the sales will keep getting better at this Southport Boutique. The New January sale kicks off now, with 20 percent off the second week in January,30 percent off the third week in January, 40 percent off from January 23-29, and the mac-daddy of the sale is the last two days in January, where you’ll score 50 percent off. Shop the entire store and web site and score up to 80 percent off overall. Brands like Diane Von Furstenburg are all fair game.
A moving sale—coupled with after-holiday pricing--means they are practically giving things away at 2 Sisters Boutique on Madison. Get 50 percent off everything—until it’s gone, that is—so act fast.
The online version of this Chicago boutique is chock-full of designer duds, but you can pick some up without breaking the bank this week. Get free ground shipping for online orders and get some major deals on designer brands like Foley and Corina and Jenni Kane.
Get to the “Going, going gone sale” at any of the Akira locations and score up to 75 percent off everything including all winter must-haves like cuffed ankle boots and silk flouncy waist dresses.
