    Retail deals for holiday weekend

    Savannah Douglas

    Boutiques on University Boulevard offer up-and-coming fashion trends. Some boutiques are offering promotions through the holiday weekend.

    Whether it’s crop tops, high-waisted shorts or an attractive party dress, fashion is a persistent element throughout every season, especially in the clothing stores on University Boulevard. Labor Day is nearing, and there seems to be a few upcoming promotions in stores and online.

    Boutique 816, Collette, Pitaya and Urban Outfitters are a few stores that have had some sales going on prior to this holiday.

    In Boutique 816 and Collette, there have been various advertisements of coupons in the UA Student Insider booklets given out around campus. These two stores mainly advertise their online promotions through Instagram and Facebook.

    The latest trends call for some wardrobe changes, and that is exactly what Boutique 816 and Collette have been aiming to do. These two stores provide affordable clothing without breaking the bank.

    From a relaxing bohemian-inspired outfit to a tasteful Las Vegas nighttime look, both Boutique 816 and Collette work to cater to many students’ fashion sense on campus. Although they do not have huge promotions for Labor Day, the coupons featured in the Student Insider certainly help students save a few extra bucks.

    What makes Pitaya unique from other stores is its recent $25 monthly gift card drawing through its email mailing list, along with a buy-one-get-one half off deal it has going on right now. Pitaya’s basics — crop tops, bandeaus, sunglasses and maxi dresses — are only some of the many items that are all under $20. Needless to say, its sale racks are definitely a bargain for any shoppers in the store.

    With summer still lingering and fall just around the corner, these latest fashion trends are certainly a must in Pitaya: tent dresses, kimono rompers and light cardigans.

    Similar to Pitaya’s sales, Urban Outfitters recently had a Back to School Sidewalk Sale last week. This sidewalk sale promoted 50 percent off already on-sale merchandise. Although this special deal is no longer available, Urban Outfitters has other sales going on, such as two-for-one shoes, two T-shirts for $22 for women, two for $30 for men and jeans marked down from $60 to $39.

    The popular no-pants trend can be achieved through a visit to Urban Outfitters. This style encompasses a loose dress shirt with a flannel tied at the waist and high knee socks. Alongside this, cargo pants, denim, oversized sweaters and long chunky cardigans are going to be upcoming fall trends this year at Urban Outfitters.

    Boutique 816, Collette, Pitaya and Urban Outfitters are or have been featuring sales from past weeks and upcoming weeks. Whether it is cute summer dresses or long flannels for the fall, these stores are always updated in the latest styles and promote sales every month or so.
