Yes, fellow couponers, it’s that magical time of year again. No, I’m not talking about Christmas or Hanukkah, I’m talking about the amazing annual Friends & Family sale at Timberland! Now, as a woman whose idea of an outdoor adventure is walking from the car to the mall entrance, outdoor enthusiast and for-the-rugged-type stores like Timberland have not always been my cup of tea. That being said, I was more than pleasantly surprised to learn that Timberland now carries much more than their classic winter and workman boot styles, which are usually geared toward the male demographic. They have tons of great new styles and fashion-forward women’s casual boots, too!

After my seemingly endless & unrewarding hunt for the perfect pair of everyday Fall/Winter boots, I was finally lucky enough to stumble upon the Bethel Buckle Tall Zip Boot in Black from the Timberland Earthkeepers collection. I immediately ordered these babies as a pre-Holiday gift to myself (sometimes it’s okay to be selfish in the name of fashion)! However, after discovering how wonderful these boots really are, besides the obvious aesthetic appeal, I may just be adding them to the gift-giving list for all of the ladies in my family, as they are available in both dark & medium brown as well. Not only are they crafted of premium leather & suede, making them an absolute bang for your buck, but they are also super comfortable and perfect if you’re on your feet for numerous hours of the day.

Plus, if you’re in the spirit of giving, now is most definitely the best time to get a jump start on your holiday shopping. Along with fashionable women’s casual boots, you can also snag gifts for the whole gang, like boots for him & the kids that will be sure to last them through the season and then some! Now, if that’s not enough to knock your waterproof socks off, then knowing you can get a WHOPPING 40% off your total purchase with this Timberland Friends & Family coupon code should do the trick!

Warm Up to Winter Savings

On November 16, 2012, in Featured Merchants, Spotlight, by Couponology

The temperature outside is dropping but you still have to leave the warm comfort of your bed to go to work, hang out with your girlfriends, do some shopping or that morning workout. Now, you open your closet and go into deep thought about what to wear but don’t worry—you’re not alone. The clothes in our dressers are just never enough, and that’s every woman’s excuse for shopping. An even better excuse (as if we even need them!) is a good discount. You’re probably picturing yourself justifying a purchase with the good old “it’s gorgeous and on sale” line and I can definitely relate, so I’m here to give you the season’s best winter apparel deals from head to toe, in one ambitious post!

First up, nothing is more of a staple in your closet than the quintessential warm sweater. We picked up the best deal—a cozy and fashionable Shaker Cowl Neck sweater for just $19.97 with Couponology’s 40-50% off Christopher & Banks coupon. It’s the perfect length for a pair of jeans or leggings and comes in two colors: olive oil and castlerock gray. I went with the castlerock gray for easier matching. Another great deal I had to take advantage of was Chadwick’s $10 off two sweaters deal. I got the silk-blend boatneck sweater with ¾ dolman sleeves in black with elegant blue silk detailing on the shoulder. I also snagged the Moonlight Bay Tabbed cowlneck sweater in ivory, which has a gorgeous neck and short sleeves that allow you to show off your necklace s and gloves.

To complement your new sweaters, invest in a good pair of jeans. I like to stick to the classics, so I went with the 1969 Lightweight Always Skinny Jeans in black. I love that they’re versatile and can be work day and night with flats, heels and boots. I used the Gap coupon for up to 70% off women’s apparel, and got my jeans for just $24.99 (originally $69.95). With savings like this, I could shop all day!

To finish off your winter wardrobe, prepare for the weather with warm, gorgeous boots. I’ll share a secret with you—I discovered an astonishing exclusive deal at Couponology: 15% off DNAFootwear order when you shop online. The deal was enough to get me to buy the gorgeous leather Buckeye Low Heel booties by Kalso Earth, in black with brown details. Having already worn them for a while, I can assure you that the boots are so comfortable and warm you won’t want to go back indoors! I can walk for hours in these through any kind of weather and make the most of this season. Unfortunately for my wallet, I didn’t stop there. After all, a girl can never have enough shoes, especially when it comes to heels. I found a great steal using the 15% off Loehmann’s coupon to fetch the comfy but stylish Pacific Platform Loafer pumps by Adrienne Vittadini in black with a 3.75” heel–extra height for rainy weather! Who said heels aren’t practical?

I’ve shown you all the deals, the rest is on you! Get online and buy whatever suits your style; I’m sure you’ll find that perfect piece to complete your winter wardrobe. If these deals aren’t enough to make your guilt disappear, just wait until the new clothes start arriving—your closet (and wallet) will thank you!

The leaves are changing and fall is in full swing, but don’t let cooler weather send you scurrying away from the outdoors! As a lover of warm weather, I’ve been keeping tabs on Moosejaw to make this transition a little smoother because, let’s face it, everyone can warm up to a bit of retail therapy! Moosejaw has everything from outdoor apparel and footwear to gear, and Couponology is bringing you an exclusive 15% off coupon on all regularly priced merchandise, as well as 20% off clearance items and free shipping promo codes.

I love to go camping, and my trusty (and rather expensive) digital camera is always with me. Unfortunately that means it’s all too exposed to the elements, and that’s when the North Face Waterproof Daypack comes in handy. It keeps everything safe with fully taped seams and PU zippers and has a capacity of 23.5 liters. The external mesh pocket is great for holding your itinerary (just make sure to put it away when it rains!) or anything else you’d like to have at your immediate disposal. The availability of colors is bound to make your days a little brighter. In addition to the tried-and-true black, the daypack comes in a bright blue and bright red.

Before it gets too cold, I’m milking every opportunity to relax outdoors and there’s no better way to do it than to lay out in a hammock. Moosejaw has plenty but the Grand Trunk Double Hammock seems to be the best deal. It’s high-strength, mildew-resistant and reliable, and comes in two patterns: Batik and Wood Grain Emboss (just the sound of that makes me go outside). Pair an evening in a hammock with some s’mores around a bonfire and fall may just turn into my favorite season.

When it does get can’t-feel-my-face cold, Patagonia’s Fiona Parka jacket for women will be your best friend. Its windproof and water-repellent quilted shell fabric encases European goose down to warm you up on winter’s cruelest days. It can be difficult to find a warm jacket that doesn’t make you feel like a bloated pumpkin all season, so I love that this one is lightweight and fitted. It’s in a classic Prussian Blue, and is sure to match with everything. The jacket hits right above the knee to protect your back from harsh winds so you can say good-bye to those chilling drafts!

Finally there’s a number for the athletes who can’t wait for the cold (more power to you!), with a great deal on Rossignol S2 Howell skis for men, on Moosejaw for a whopping 40% off regular price! I love the design by Andy Howell–a winter-appropriate white and gray with a touch of rustic mysticism. The skis are fast, stable and agile on-piste and off, giving you all you need to be the star of your next ski trip.

Moosejaw’s selection of outdoor gear (and don’t even get me started on footwear!) is so vast I can’t bear to keep the savings to myself. There’s something for everyone, and our coupon codes are here to help! Which category will you find yourself drooling over?
