Sales! Sales! Sales!

Zola Shoes - they're closing their 45 Avenue Road location (Yorkville) so you can save up to 80% on in-stock shoes but only until July 26th.

Cotton Ginny - buy two tees or tanks at the regular price and get the third one free; beautiful cotton sweaters on sale for $19.99 and $29.99; also check out the cotton tunics reduced to $39.99 in either black or white with same coloured embroidery - these are great for dressing up or down in summer time.

Reitmans - their end of season sale is now on. Save up to 70% off spring and summer fashions. They had cute plaid blouses marked down to $3.99!

Addition Elle - the sale here is a little tricky. Some items are an additional 30% off the sale price and some are an extra 50% off the sale price. There are also selected new items that have been reduced by 25%.

MEXX – take an additional 25% off already reduced men's and women's clothing and accessories. I’ve never gone into this store because it always seemed rather preppy. Much to my delight they have beautiful flowy tops and dresses. A large portion of the jewellery is marked down to $7.99-$11.99 and with the additional 25% off, this is a great deal!

French Connection – up to 50% off selected items. This store has cute stuff but I’ve always found it crazily overpriced.

Le Chateau – selected items have been marked down (tops, jewellery, dresses, shoes) but I would suggest checking out the new viscose scarves for $25 each. They’re the ones that look and feel like pashminas but aren’t.

Bedo – semi annual sale offering 50% everything off in the store excluding new arrivals.

Costa Blanca – an additional 50% off items already on sale.

Yarn & Knitting Shop

A new yarn store has opened up at 456 Queen St West called Yarn & Knitting Shop. They don’t carry all those fancy yarns that are popular right now, but they do carry some of the softest yarns you’ve ever touched. The store is set up with the skeins hanging around the perimeter and at the back of the store there are beautiful blankets and knitted bags as well as a small selection of wool fabrics.
For all of you newbies out there, they offer free knitting classes on Sundays – make sure to sign up in advance to guarantee yourself a spot as classes are small and fill up quickly.
