We’ve had unseasonably warm, rainy weather here in Virginia for the last few weeks which has been wonderful (warm!) but also a bit obnoxious (so much rain!).
I was extremely happy though that I picked up this rain jacket on super sale when I popped into Lucy the day after Christmas. I know it’s a little late for this to really matter, but for next year’s reference, I really think that after Christmas sales are often much better than Black Friday sales–seriously!
Hear me out: by end of December, stores have to do inventory and pay taxes on everything left in stock, so they often are looking to dump merchandise. Plus, there are just lots of great gift items that didn’t get purchased for Christmas that now get doubly put on sale. And then, since stores are always a season ahead, they are looking to get spring merchandise in as soon as inventory is finished even though the rest of us have another few months of winter to endure. So we get the enjoy the benefits!
Lucy had most of their store marked down and then an additional 50% off, so I scored this rain jacket for $30, $120 off retail!
