Columbus Wanted You To Shop

He did. Otherwise, how do you explain all the sales?

OUTLET OVERJOY... Clinton Crossings is celebrating Columbus Day early with their sales and specials for holiday weekend. Best deals so far? Saks' Off Fifth, is offering a Buy One, Get One (with your second item at 50 percent off) and an additional 40 percent off all clearance. All Phillip Lim, Rag & Bone, and Vince in the women's department at Barneys is 25 percent off. And up to 50 percent off all wool outerwear and denim and cords for women at J.Crew and $50 off every $250 you spend at Polo Ralph Lauren. Don't forget to follow Premium Outlets on Twitter, showing coupon tweets (even on your mobile) at the info center will grant you an exclusive coupon book for even more discounts!

BLAME IT ON BETSEY... Wethersfield-born Betsey Johnson is having a Columbus Day weekend sale, on her sale, online! Through the 12th, she is offering an additional 40 percent off sale merchandise with promo code: Columbo. Funky print cosmetics bags and totes, baubles, and ballet flats, all for under $100 with free shipping on orders over $200.  It makes us want to do one of her signature cartwheels down the runway with joy!  (Editor's note: Oh boy...)

DIVA DEALS... Dior Beauty has launched their second annual Dior Diva auction, featuring prize packages - some more lust-worthy than others. Professional Diva includes a one month internship (unpaid, we presume) in the marketing department of Dior Beauty, coding it as an opportunity to "network, network, network." However, if luxury and beauty executive status is your goal in life, we recommend you bid on Networking Diva, which includes a "power lunch" with Pamela Baxter, CEO of LVMH Perfumes and Cosmetics. Our favorite is the Cherie Diva, including a trip for two to Paris, complete with a city tour and a visit to the Dior offices. Still not tempted? Well, 100 percent of the proceeds from the auctions will go towards the American Cancer Society, and Look Good... Feel Better, so login to and bid bid bid!

RUNWAY SECRET.. ModelCo will be offering 30 percent off all web purchases, now through the end of October on all their quick fix, "wish I thought of that" products. New products range from weird - SunSponge, a sponge-tipped all-in-one sunless tanner that resembles a squeegee - to innovative - their new Turbo LashWand heats up to 60 degrees, opposed to the typical 40, for long lasting, perfectly curled lashes, plus it comes in hot pink! And of course, the highly sanitary - Liquid Buds Lip Revitalizer ($14), a pouch of one-time-use lip moisturizer, with a crack-seal and apply applicator. Order online with discount code: MC0709.

BABY ON BOARD... Want This isn't pregnant. (Seriously.) But we know a lot of ladies who are and the maternity wear, well it ain't always so pretty. Those stretch waist jeans might not be a far cry from the fold-over yoga pants we all know and love, but there's really nothing chic about them. Plus an entire new wardrobe made up of similar pieces just makes us want to gag. Denim Therapy has a solution - for only $60. Send them a pair of your pre-preg jeans and they'll doctor them up with a discreet side stretch waist band. After the baby bump (and the added weight) is gone, send them back and they'll restore your jeans back to the way they originally were... for free!
