Ann Taylor new arrivals and 50% off

Ann Taylor has been having an extended 50% off your entire purchase promo (UPDATE - excludes Spring arrivals, bummer), valid in-stores and online. I couldn't find a free shipping promo, so this deal is probably better in-stores.
Fireside blouse in Spiced Cherry,  Pleated Placket Blouse in Chartreuse Update: excluded from promo

Amongst Ann Taylor's recent arrivals, these two tropical blouses caught my eye. Neither are "cheap" even with the 50% off, but I can see them as wardrobe staples. The colors are perfect for adding some girly punch to mundane outfits, and both blouses can be worn with jeans (imagine how chic paired with white jeans in the summer). I also love: polyester makes them machine washable, collars make for fun layering under crewneck sweaters and tops, and center placket details elongate the torso and look great peeking out from under blazers or cardigans.

The red one is very pretty in-person with a faint spotted print, but I couldn't find my size to try on. After calling all my local stores, I was very sad to discover they no longer carry 00P's at all. I also found out the petite version is an online exclusive, so both of these will have to go on my list awaiting free shipping. Readers - did anyone try on these blouses?

  2. @Anonymous My mistake - thank you for pointing it out. After calling several stores to find these blouses, they said the yellow one is both an online exclusive AND excluded from sale. Very very fine print online - sneaky.

  5. All of the Ann Taylors near me got rid of their 00P a couple months ago (with the opening of their new "Concept" stores). I was so disappointed, especially because the 00P doesn't always fit the way I'd like it to, and I hate the hassle of returning online purchases. I was also surprised as it always seemed like they sold out of the 00P clothing pretty quickly!
