Okay… I promised you earlier this week that I would be back to show you my big, bad (meaning totally good) purchases from the weekend's outlet shopping excursion.
I should save the best for last, but I just can't wait to share it. This was my favorite item and best deal rolled into one.
The backstory: I've been eyeing this little number from West Elm for quite some time...
It's the Phoenix Dhurrie rug from West Elm. Originally $599 for an 8x10. (It's on sale right now online for $419 plus $25 delivery surcharge.)
It had me at pink. I know. It's my weakness. I thought it would be fun in the sunroom, which already has some pink accents. However, they didn't have the rug in the store near me so that I could check it out in person, and I really didn't need to be spending that kind of $$ anyway. Plus, does my house really need any more pink? Maybe not. So, I let it go.
Last Friday, my friend Valerie and I went outlet shopping in Ohio, and our first stop was Pottery Barn. (You may remember Valerie from our run in with Thrifty Decor Chick.)
The Pottery Barn outlet carries all things PB and West Elm. It was nirvana. And nestled among the rows of rugs was a Phoenix Dhurrie rug. We had met at last! And I loved every 8x10 inch of it.
The rug didn't have a price tag, but I figured it would be around $300. I asked a sales associate to check the price. He came back and told me it would be $167. SCORE! Even if it didn't work in the sunroom, that baby was coming home with me. I could not pass up that deal.
When I got to the counter to pay, I was informed that the rug was an additional 30% off, meaning the $599 rug was mine for less than $120. I felt as if I'd won some type of shopping award. I may have given the cashier an acceptance speech.
Here's Phoenix Dhurrie lying on my sunroom floor. As you can tell by my stacks of magazines, I didn't bother to stage the photo for you.
I'm getting ready to make some paint changes to this room, so I'll have better pics soon. But, I couldn't wait to show you.
I'll be unveiling some other outlet purchases next week. Stay tuned…
We are getting ready for yet another snowstorm to hit tomorrow. It makes me want to throw myself down on my pink rug and have a pity party. What are you up to this weekend?
