Dion’s Deal: She’s Back! (Free Hand Towel Too!)
April 26, 2010

Happy Monday Morning! 

 Thanks for sticking with me and my blog while I’ve been on vacation.  The past 5 days were spent in sunny (and a couple days of cloudy) San Diego and Southern California. 

Does this sculpture look familiar? My fiance and I were going to re-create the pose for this photo, but were too embarrassed, since there was a huge crowd, waiting around us to take their pix!

Anyway, back to the deals! 

I found a deal for a free hand-sized towel via the Weavefield Mills company.  Check it here: According to their site, you can just enter your name and address and get a free hand towel sample in the mail.  Let me know if this works!  (While supplies last.)

Dion’s Deal: *FREE* Full-Sized Origins Cleanser (Up To $20 Value) April 22nd!
April 20, 2010

This deal is a no-brainer if you’re near a participating Dillard’s store on April 22nd. Check it out:

Origins is promoting their products are pure, compared to the chemicals that could be in your current face wash.

On April 22nd, bring your current face cleanser (full or empty, doesn’t matter) and trade it for a full-sized Origins cleanser, valued at up to $20! 

At the link I posted above, you can see all the participating locations, and there are definitely ones in our area.  (Oak Park, Independence, etc.)  I’d suggest you call that store and confirm before you head out on the 22nd, to make sure they still have the products in stock.  Cheers!

PS:  I’m going to be slammed this next week with May sweeps stories, so I’m already anticipating a lull in Deals postings.  Stay with me– I’ll have a fresh batch of deals Monday!

Dion’s Daily Deal: Donate Workout Bottoms & Get $10 Off Pants @ LUCY– All For A Good Cause!
April 20, 2010

Besides Lucille Ball…”Lucy” is an activewear shop for women.  There’s a location in Leawood’s Town Center Plaza, and for Earth Day, they’re accepting donations of used workout bottoms.

Until the end of the month, all pants will be donated to local organizations and through April 30th, you’ll get $10 off a new pair of full priced performance bottoms.

Sigh. This is me at the sports doctor yesterday, getting my creaky, sore knees checked out. I’m donning some athletic clothes today and heading back to do more evaluations. It’s not a big deal– but that cold wrap was just *freezing*!
