Hi Girls,

If there are others out there who like Lands' End like I do, you might want to know about the sale that they are having right now. Everything is 30% off and the shipping is free.

If you like cardigans, you will find them in lots of different colors. It's also a good place to find swimsuits. And I love their totes.

I buy Mr. Boomer's khakis from Lands' End. It is so much easier than trying to get him to go to the mall to try stuff on.

There is a sale promo code on the Lands' End website's opening page.

But you will have to hurry, hurry, hurry if you want to order anything. The sale expires at midnight.

Midnight tonight -- so if you get way into looking through their website, don't forget to keep an eye on the clock.

Oh rats, I missed the Lands End sale. I'm usually afraid to order from online stores unless someone recommends them. But I realize it's the way of the future.

I recently ordered a bathing suit online (took a leap of faith), from Bare Necessities. It came immediately, free shipping, no problems, and I like it.

As for a recommendation for an online store, I have had good results with Zappos. Returns are at their expense. The first time I ordered the wrong size, so had to return the order. Since then, no returns necessary.

Women are like phones:
They like to be held, talked to, and touched often.
But push the wrong button and your ass is disconnected.

Exactly!

Does anyone know where in The Villages I can buy one of those little "half" sweaters .... you know the kind with sleeves that just covers the girls and stops half way to your waist? Are they called bolero tops, I'm not sure.

Hi Barefoot,

Those sweaters are called shrugs.

I have always thought that was such a perfect name for them.

Thanks Boom, you know everything.

Does anyone know where I can buy shrugs in TV? I can only find black at Bealls.

I remember when they used to be called bolero tops. "Everything old is new again," I guess. I'm still waiting for shoulder pads to come back again. Such a crisp, nice look if they are not too big.

Shoulder pads ... that brings back memories. When I worked at IBM (100 years ago), I wore business suits every day with big shoulder pads. Thank goodness the days of pantihose are over for me.

Default shoulder pads are back!

One of the jackets in a Coldwater Creek fashion show I went to this week had shoulder pads - if we could only have a closet for each decade . . .

Barefoot....I, too, am glad the days of panty hose are over!! "Barefoot" is a fitting name for you now!!
You have made me curious....do any of the ladies out there reading this forum wear panty hose now and then? I haven't for years...bare legs were totally accepted in the office environment I retired from last April.
Just wondering....

Retired 8 years ago. Haven't worn panty hose since. (But....... I have had tights on with skirts in the winter).
