Message from Princess: Lucky green shoes for St. Patrick’s Day

Monday, March 8th, 2010

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up on March 17, I’ve definitely had green shoes on my mind.  While some people don’t necessarily do anything to celebrate the holiday, I think it’s fun to get in the spirit by wearing something green (plus, you’ll avoid a good pinch by St. Patty’s Day revelers on the prowl for anyone not donning the hue).  There are lots of ways to incorporate green into your wardrobe for the Irish holiday, but let’s face it – it’s a great excuse to wear some fabulous green shoes.  Of course, as an added benefit, you can get plenty of wear from a freshly-picked green pair during spring as well.  Here are some of my favorite green shoes that are sure to bring plenty of luck:

So. cute.  The Harajuku Lovers Avallon for $99.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Fergie Empower in spinach for $99 at with free shipping.  Apply coupon code MSAVE for 20% off, making them $79.20.  They also come in a lighter shade of green called wheatgrass.

Carlos Santana Glamorous for $55.20 (MSRP $110) at 6pm.

Get a little funky with the Naughty Monkey Knot Sure in green.  The best price is at Amazon for $20-$28 depending on selection, but few sizes are left.  Zappos has them in plenty of sizes for $68.95.

Get even funkier with the Irregular Choice Shimmmy, which will obviously stand out in a major way.  Get these for $120.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Go for simple and sweet with the Miss Me Monet-5 ankle boot for $39.95 with free shipping from Amazon.

Nine West Beaulah for $83.97 (MSRP $119.95) at 6pm.

The elegant Calvin Klein Daliah for $71 (MSRP $118) at 6pm.

This one strikes me as having a true St. Patty’s Day vibe.  The Carlos Santana Rome for $89 with free shipping at  Coupon code MSAVE takes them down to $71.20.

Spring-ready: The SM Ven Rosette Wedge in green for $39.95 at DSW.  Take $10 off orders $10 or more with coupon code MARCH10 at checkout (must sign in to use codes), making them $29.95.

Michael Antonio Hagen for $64.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless.

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

Cheap Chick is doing the happy dance because it’s Saturday and we’re finally having a beautiful warm day – a welcome break from the dreary, cold, icy weather that’s been prevalent here lately.  What else makes Cheap Chick happy?  Cute shoes on the cheap, of course.  So, before this little birdie goes outside to do…well, what chicks normally do (flitting around, chirping, pecking for bugs, etc.), she thought she’d round up some of the best brand name shoes for $25 or less.  All of these are offered by 6pm:

Cheap-A-Thon: Cute cheap heels under $25

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

*This post is from 2010.  See additional cute cheap shoes in more recent posts.*

As you may know, Cheap Chick has a love for finding shoes on the cheap (i.e. under $25) and even more so now that Valentine’s Day is coming up.  She tends to get all gooey and sentimental about it around this time of year, in contrast to the bad little birdie alter-ego we’ve seen before, but it works out well for anyone looking for their own cute cheap shoes because she’s even fiercer when on the hunt.  Since it is getting close to V-Day, Cheap Chick decided to totally focus on finding heels this time – since many like to get dressed up for the day of love – and she even threw a few pink and red pairs in for good measure.  Here’s what she found:

Two Lips Ceporah in red satin and five other color options for $19.49 (MSRP $77.95) at 6pm.  Update: Now $15.59.

Nine West Rocha in pink or blue for $19.75 (MSRP $79) at 6pm.  Update: Now $15.80.

A Nine West Bonfire lookalike, the Mossimo Vilma in grey for $20.98 (MSRP $29.99) at Amazon

Newport News Patent Slingback Sandal in black and white for $17.99 (regularly $45)

Steve Madden Richh for $22.49 (MSRP $89.95) at 6pm.  Update: The sale price has ended and is now increased to $48.30.

Schutz 34901005 in brown for $22.43 (MSRP $89.70) at 6pm.  Update: Now $17.94.

Cheap Chick wanted to add one boot to the mix:

Newport News Slouch Bootie in black or taupe for $24.99 (MSRP $49).  Plus, there’s more cute boots under $25 at Newport News.

Please note that many of these sale prices appear to be permanent markdowns, but can change at any time.  Some of the 6pm sales expire 2/7/10.
