Justifiably famous for their miraculously butt-lifting workout pants, Lululemon Athletica (The Fashion Mall, 317-844-5235) also provides an adorable place to stash them: in this “Sweat Once a Day” bag, $128. The price is steeper than we’d normally pay for a gym duffel, but this one works hard for the money. Check it: The bowling-ball styling makes it double as an overnight bag, and the cute gray-and-white striped interior is thoughtfully designed to hold everything you need for your workout. We’re in Lululemon love.
Happily, we found the wall of colored shoestrings at Cole Haan (The Fashion Mall, 317-810-0160), showing off easy ways to add a shot of color to an outfit during the winter doldrums. The wall is tucked in the back, so you won’t see it unless you’re looking for it.
As of this morning, almost everything at Banana Republic (bananarepublic.com for locations) is 40 percent off, both in store and online. We’re loving the no-iron shirts for men and women, in thoughtful cuts and gorgeous colors. Just get thee to a store (or a computer) by Monday night to scoop up these deals.
