Maybe I should begin with a little background information about myself: my name is Maegan Cadet and I’m a compulsive buyer. The thing that I can’t stand more than anything, is seeing an overpriced item. I seldom buy things full price, lest they be thrifted. When I heard that the Urban Outfitters on 36th and Walnut was having a special sale for college ID holders, I had to know more. I’m a deal-finder, after all. But, I was not as impressed as I hoped to be. And I love Urban. I’ve made my rounds a couple of times in the past three weeks, tweeted about their 30% discount for sale bags and shoes, and discovered a new signature scent (Vanille, it’s the bomb). When I saw what Urban’s sale, called “College Night,” truly is, I wasn’t hit with that same twinge of excitement, that rush that accompanies finding a good sale. “College Night” is nothing really special. What is it, you ask? Well, it’s 30% off sale merchandise with a valid college ID. It takes place on Saturday, September 24 from 6PM-9PM. So basically, they’re making an event out of a 3 hour sale that really shouldn’t be counted as a sale because they’ve been having 30% off of bags, shoes, and home for a while now. If you check the sales racks like once a week (or read TheWalk.com daily) you can have access to a discount like this any day….
Nevertheless, Urban does have some great sales pieces that you can find (but some you really have to look for). Here are my favorite finds:
These pieces caught my eye (and one caught my wallet):
These Deena and Ozzy booties are perfect for Fall, with a heel height that makes it easy to maneuver around campus and look fierce simultaneously. $39.99.
I adore the color of this lacy tank; it is such a gorgeous hue, perfect for when the leaves change. Pair it with a solid colored cardigan or a black leather jacket to beat the cold. $19.99.
These BDG black skinnies are perfect for going to class or going out in the evening. Dark-washed skinny jeans are definitely a basic piece that one should have in her closet, so if you don’t have a pair, get one. Or else. $19.99.
