Cardi Talk

While switching out my closet for the season I discovered some of my spring & summer go-to basics were looking ready for retirement. After 4 days of wearing the same black cotton cardigan during the first few days the AC went on at work, I decided it was high time to listen to the blogger buzz and stalk the Lands End daily deal emails I'd been getting and snatch up a few colorful cardigans.

You've heard the news right? Lands End's new Canvas line is oh so cute and sweet on the budget too. I like to call it inspired by what J. Crew WAS, before they began to think they are the bees knees and could charge $88 for a cardigan that falls apart and $150 for a pair of ballet flats (or decided to sell this little number).

Enter Lands End Canvas.
1. Lands End offers free shipping codes a lot with no hidden minimums. You hear that, you DON'T have to spend $150 to get free shipping!
2. If you go to Lands End via Ebates, you get 2% cash back on your purchase!
3. They have daily web deals, and email you specials as well. I got this cherry heritage cardigan for $29.

{please ignore the gross & frumpy bathroom photography. the cardigans still cute right?}
4. I debated which size to order. I usually wear a 6 or 8 which, in my mind, translates to medium, but in LEC land it's a small. I went with their suggestion and it was perfect! I am tall and have long arms and the small fits perfectly. Not even the teeniest bit too short in the torso or arms!
5. They wrote me a hand written and signed thank you note...for ordering 1 measly cardigan with a coupon and code for free shipping. Snaps, LEC, snaps.
6. There was a coupon in my package for $15 off my next order & more free shipping.
Do you really need any more than 6 glowing reasons?

The regular line from Lands' End is really good too. I buy their things all the time and you can find a lot of them at Sears.

Loving this post girl!! You are too cute! I had heard not too long ago that Land's End was selling the Canvas line in Sears! I haven't checked it out yet but I've been meaning to. Thanks for the reminder! :)

Cute! I dislike J Crew for that very reason...they must be the only site that never offers free shipping on any amount. I refuse to order online from them. And they charge way more than everyone else for shipping. Ugh. They don't get it.

Cardigans are my absolute favorite thing to wear. I have heard so many great things about this new brand. I need to check it out.

Love the way you phrased it, "what J Crew WAS", that puts it perfectly.

Fun post Miss Barefoot!
