According to the National Retail Federation, clothing is among the top most-requested item on holiday wish lists, and today’s Free Shipping Day is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of clothing deals. Lands’ End is offering free shipping on all orders plus 40% off today, and has great cold-weather styles for men, women and children. Banana Republic is a first-time participant this year, offering free shipping on all orders including these popular styles for women.
Shoes are another great buy on Free Shipping Day with stores like Aldo, Skechers, Ugg, TOMS Shoes and Dr. Scholls participating.
