Happy Monday! This is my first post for Detroit Mommies and I am so excited to be here. I’ll be sharing deals and sales on fashionable goods like apparel & accessories, beauty items, and home decor that are available online and in metro Detroit. If you’re looking for something in particular, please let me know and I will do my best to find it for you, for less.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and as the daughter of a Breast Cancer Survivor it is a cause that is close to my heart (and breasts). Ever since I watched my mother go through cancer, I have made sure to make changes in my life to both support my family and charities looking to end the disease. Personally, I’ve started looking into critical illness insurance rates – will it cover me if I get diagnosed with cancer? How expensive is it? Is it a good way to support my family? And I’ve also looked to support as many wonderful charities as possible because so many were there for my mom when she needed them most. Cancer takes no prisoners so it’s crucial we work together to stop it! I thought I would start off with a round up of deals that not only save you money, but that also do good.
Shop made in Michigan accessories (barrettes, headbands, hats, and earwarmers) and save 30% for the entire month of October with code “boobs” at checkout. Plus, $2 from each item sold will benefit the Young Survival Coalition. The knit beanies & ear warmers with rhinestone footballs in our favorite Michigan team colors are so cute! Perfect gift for the fashionable Michigan sports fan!
Who doesn’t love new shoes? Shop the FFANY Shoes on Sale event happening now at QVC, then tune in October 24th from 5-8pm est to shop shoes not seen online or on air. All shoes (a great selection of designer brands) on sale at half off MSRP with net proceeds benefiting breast cancer research and education. I spotted boots from Michael Kors, DKNY flats, and sexy suede pumps from Sam Edelman, plus many other well-loved labels.
Save 10% on your pink beauty & cosmetic order at Beauty Store Depot, plus get Free Shipping! Use code PINK10 to save through October 31, 2012. A huge selection of pink products – stock up on your favorite OPI polishes, Clarisonic Skin Care Systems, gloMinerals cosmetics and more!
For the entire month of October, Poppin will donate 10% off all Pink sales to the Young Survival Coalition. Get 10% off your first order with Poppin when you sign up for their newsletter, plus enjoy Free Shipping on your $35 or more purchase through October. There’s definitely no shortage of cute (and already affordable), pink items at Poppin!
Sadly, we all can probably say we know someone struggling with or who has had breast cancer. These pretty Pink Warrior bracelets from Ettika are $25 off for the month of October or while supplies last. A perfect little pick me up for all those strong women in your life who are truly warriors. 100% of the net proceeds of the sale of these bracelets go to the American Cancer Society.
