Shelter from the Storm
As Canada’s largest national fundraising campaign dedicated to ending violence against women, Shelter from the Storm’s anti-violence T-shirt and teddy bear campaign is run in partnership with Winners until May 11. Net proceeds will benefit more than 450 shelters for abused women and their children across Canada as well as community violence prevention programs.

Shelter from the Storm tees for both men and women are $12.99 and the teddy bears are priced at $9.99. Consider supporting this worthwhile cause next time you’re hunting down bargains at Winners (or HomeSense). Donations can also be made online at, at Winners/HomeSense or any branch of the Bank of Montreal.

Old Navy Nuggets

Tempting spring and summer stock is arriving in full force at Old Navy, and the first wave of pieces have already been marked down — scoop up deals on retro print satin ballet flats now $15 (reg. $24), plus bold patterned clutches with over-sizes chunky wooden closures for just $10 (reg. $26) and keyhole sleeveless tops going for a mere $8 (reg. $28) — great for layering now, but wear them solo soon. While you’re there, comb the racks of 1970s-style sundresses and cork-heel wedges.
