Two for One at Reitmans

It’s barely May, and Reitmans is already into their third wave of spring reductions. To make room for fresh stock, this popular Canadian chain is offering a great excuse to update your wardrobe with its buy one, get one free promotion on select previously reduced items.

With most merchandise already priced well under $50, this deal is worth investigating. Basic tops, pretty blouses, work trousers, weekend capris, flirty skirts and summer dresses can be yours starting as low as $14.99. Some accessories, jewellery and shoes are priced to move as well (lots under $15).



Short Sale at Suzy Shier

There’s an incentive to bare your legs this season — the Suzy Shier short sale. Save 20 per cent off all styles, including short shorts and more demure (office-appropriate) Bermudas that skim the knee. Various styles and fabrics to choose from and with regular prices starting at just $20 a pair.

While you're there, don't miss out on the solid selection of spring/summer frocks. Halter dresses, smock styles, babydolls and tunics with deep v-necks start at just $25 a pop. Best buy: a candy pink jersey cocktail dress ($30) — very Marilyn Monroe, and can be layered with a cardigan or short-sleeved blazer.
