Ol' Punxsutawney Phil might have not seen his shadow on February 1, meaning an early spring is supposedly on it's way. But there are few parts of the country where it's OK weather-wise (and discretion-wise) to go pantsless, should that be a trend you were thinking of hopping on board with when warm weather hits. No, we've resolved ourselves to at least another month of cold weather. But this doesn't have to be a bad thing if you take a look at the sale line-up this weekend: Gwyneth Paltrow approved Matches and Kate Spade are ripe for the plundering, plus still respectable sale sections at the designer heavy sites Creatures of Comfort, TheCorner, La Garconne. It's time to go out of winter with a very chic bang. 23 sales not enough for you? Keep an eye on the Dealfeed Radar for an updated list of sales.
Pictured above: J Crew's beaded rose necklace, J Crew's daisylace miniaudiere, Tory Burch's small resin bag, Tory Burch's Tomi rosary necklace, Match's red chain link iPad case, Match's velvet ruffled strapless dress, and Match's wicked studded lace-up boots.
