Columbus Day has never been my favorite holiday. Sure, I have to give major props to my man Christopher Columbus for his sweet voyage across the Atlantic in 1492, but we don't get the day off from work or school, nor do we get presents on Columbus Day, unless you consider the gift of the New World... which sadly, I do not.
We may not get a day off, gifts or decorations today in honor of the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria, but we do get one thing out of Columbus Day... sales.
In honor or Chris, here are my three favorite Columbus Day sales. Go ahead and gift yourself now because Christmas is still a 74 day journey away.
1. Chick Downtown - Today only, Chick Downtown is offering a shipload of savings featuring 25% off of everything, including sale items. This Indigo Sailor Stripe Hoodie is the first thing added to my Columbus Day wish list.
2. Urban Outfitters - It's getting chillier and chillier outside, at least in the non-Floridian states, so enjoy 30% off of all outerwear like this cool Kimichi & Blue Fur Neck Poncho that kinda looks like something Mr. Columbus himself would have sported during his search for new land, spice and everything nice.
3. Nine West - Discover some boots to add to your Fall wardrobe while taking advantage of Nine West's 30% off boot sale. *Hint: These slouchy mid-calf Elektra boots will rock the boat in brown or black suede.
**This Seafaring Necklace from Modcloth isn't on sale, but I like it anyway and it's only $15.99 worth of coin.
Your ship has come in.
