American Apparel That’s Always in Season

Jun 29

If you’re a savvy shopper like me, you know one of the best ways to save money is to shop for end of the season bargains.  I can’t tell you how much I’ve saved by going to clearance sales.  And I have a closet full of brand new dresses, blouses, jeans and sweaters with the tags still on them to prove it. I have a fondness for a bargain, but sometimes, what I buy sits in the closet because it doesn’t fit.  It’s one thing to be savvy, and another thing to be smart.  And not every deal is a smart one.  The problem is, I tend to buy an item I really like, even if it’s too small for me and swear I’m going to lose enough weight to get into it. 

That’s why I was so excited to hear that American Apparel now sells their clothes online. I love their stretchy knit tops, leggings, and jeans because they are comfortable right from the start. Just in time for those long summer days, weekend getaways to the mountains or beach they have teamed up with Groupon to offer great deals on some of the bestselling items in their line.  Now you can buy their comfy, stretchy sweaters, infinity scarfs, and sexy unitards at prices so low you could fill a closet up with them, but I guarantee you won’t leave them in there for long. You can save on new styles for women and men, spend $50 and get free shipping, and use codes for other special offers and deals  With all the 4th of July neighborhood celebrations and cookouts on the horizon, you’ll love wearing them and showing them off to your friends.  And of course, if you do plan to sit out the festivities and spend the time enjoying a good book and quiet meditation, they have the outerwear and yoga pants for that, too.

American Apparel was known as an ethical business that took pride in creating jobs by keeping its factory in the U.S. and hiring local workers who earned a fair wage.  When I heard the company was closing, I knew it would be hard to say good bye to those cute little denim jackets with mock shearling lined collars and the lacy tops that were their signature pieces.  To find them selling online is the best kept secret of the season.  And with Groupon, looks like I won’t have to wait for the season to end to dig in.
