Kate Spade Fun (Secret Promo Code!)

Are you dying over some of the Kate Spade new arrivals and in equal pain over the price points? Well, I have some good news!!! There's a "secret" (because it's not openly advertised on the website) promo going on that gives you 20% off all full price items excluding watches, plus free shipping!

Yes, you may squeal now. I won't tell. ^_-

So, here are the details: 20% off full price items (excluding watches); free shipping; final sale. Promo code: KSFALL12. Expires today (8/19/2012), so you'll have to move fast to take advantage.

Here's a tip - since these are final sale purchases, I suggest that you check and see if the items you want are available at Nordstrom. Nordstrom obviously has a terrific open return policy but what you might not know is that they will also match other stores' prices. So, if you print out a copy of the shopping cart, showing the discounted prices after the promo code has been entered, and take it to your store or call an SA by phone, Nordstrom will match the price. And give you free shipping and returns. And if the fit is off, you can exchange or return as necessary. One extra bonus for me, as a Nordstrom Card holder is that I get some free alterations, so even if something doesn't fit quite right, Nordy's talented staff will help me make it work. Win-win, right?

Not sure what you should pick? Me neither. There's always this:

SO adorable. It's like the vintage find you're always hoping you'll come across in a thrift shop somewhere. Some other ideas? Well, I have a few (all items available at Nordstrom as well...because erm...that's my plan and I'm stickin' to it):

1. Kate Spade New York 'Jane' Dress (In solid green. Oh, I love a green dress.)
3. Kate Spade New York 'Jane' Dress (In a graphic black and white print)
4. Kate Spade New York 'Rainey' Dress (in the adorable Garance Dore illustration-print)
5. Kate Spade New York 'Jessie' Top (so cute and an integral part of this outfit)
6. Kate Spade New York 'Mollie' Skirt (also super cute and again part of the outfit noted in #5)
7. Kate Spade New York 'Hilda' Cardigan (I probably wouldn't spring for this cardi due to cost, but it belongs with outfit #5 and I think we can all agree that embellished pockets are a great idea for a DIY sort-of project, right?)
8. Kate Spade New York Striped 'Celina' Dress (love this dress too! Might be great for a winter wedding I'm going to...)

Happy hunting and hope you're all having a great weekend!


  1. Great tip about Nordstrom price match! Another fine example of their top notch customer service.

  2. Yes, Nordstrom is great about that. BUT... from what I have experienced in the past, it a specific price, not a blanket 20% off everything due to a promo. It was a Cole Haan promo I wanted to match as it was risk free to try boots from Nordstrom but CH had the %off promo ( but once you wear them they are YOURS) but Nordstrom said they would match a lower price or the sale price but NOT a 20% ( or whatever) PROMO price. let me know if this has changed tho....

  3. Oooooooh...I love all of these Kate Spade dresses! Great finds and a great promo!

  4. Thanks for the promo. I love Kate Spade dresses.

  5. Wow! Thanks for sharing!! Oh, how I DO love Kate Spade!!!! :)
