Stylish Savings: Coupon Codes For Internet Shopping Tuesday, Nov 18 2008 

I have surfed the web for stylish savings for all from many stylish Internet shops. Promotional codes can be fickle friends. The bottom line: Stores have the right to discontinue them at whim. I have added my source for each code, so please don’t shoot the messenger. If a code doesn’t work for you, please let me know, and I will be happy to remove it from the list. Once you start using promotional codes, you will never pay retail again! Have fun shopping!

Purple Peretti!

Listen up guys! Girls have 3 favorite kinds of boxes that they like to see under the tree……the black and white box of Chanel, the orange Hermes box, and The little blue Tiffany box. You can’t go wrong with any of these! New from Tiffany is the Elsa Peretti Lacquer Bangle in Orchid. Purple is the “it” color of this season. Won’t you look so hip and happening when gifting her with this little bauble? I happen to own this one in silver, and I believe they also come in black and red. Be a really big spender and get one in each color! It’s fab for $395 at

Who Is it For? ……….Any girl that has a wrist!
