Alloy Apparel has started an ongoing monthly Stand Tall contest! You can nominate a fellow tall woman (friend, mother, coworker, anyone!) who's made a positive impact on your life and they will get a chance to win $250. I love this idea!

Touch, try on, and buy tall clothing at Long Tall Sally's upcoming pop up shops! Seattle is up first this weekend and then San Francisco and LA/Long Beach the following two weekends.
For specific details on dates, locations, and times:
It's Labor Day weekend which means tall clothing SALES! Including 20% off full-price styles at Long Tall Sally, 30% off everything at Alloy, 50% off TALL denim at Express, and 40% off everything at Gap! Check out all the current sales here.
For TODAY ONLY, May 4th, you'll get 50% off tall activewear at Old Navy! They have a big selection of tall active leggings (ankle-length and capri styles) as well as choices in joggers, shorts, and active tops. I own a number of pairs of ON active leggings and pants and I just may have to add a few more things to my closet with this deal!
For Old Navy's activewear collection, click here.
Express is offering FREE SHIPPING and FREE RETURNS on ALL of their jeans through May 5th! Which means you (and I!) get to try on as many different styles as you want without those pesky extra fees. Express is my go-to for tall denim...their skinny jeans are my fav!
Here are a few styles I'm loving. To see all the tall denim that Express has available, click here.
Long Tall Sally's 2018 spring season pop up shops are coming to an end. Ok, all at one time now..."Boooo!"
The last two shops will be in New York City this weekend and then Boston after that. I know a lot of tall ladies live in these two areas, so be sure to go out and get you some fabulous tall clothes for the spring and summer! Don't you just love getting to try on outfits in person?
For all the specifics:
If you don't live near NYC or Boston, you'll need to hop online. LTS has some wonderful new looks they just added. Check them out here. Plus get Free Shipping on orders over $30!
Well, Long Tall Sally is coming to MY town anyway! ;)
This weekend they will be hosting a tall clothing pop up shop in Dallas and I'm so excited! I always feel so lucky when they come this way. It doesn't happen often, so I'm going to take advantage. I can't wait to see what they bring. I'm hoping for some wardrobe basics (jeans, tees, etc.) as well as some fabulous choices from their winter line and maybe even a sneak peek of new spring styles. It'll be so nice to try things on in person for a change...every tall gal's dream!
If you don't live near Dallas, then see below for Long Tall Sally's pop up locations in March. Fingers crossed they're headed your way, too!
For those of you who didn't hit the pop up shop jackpot this time around, LTS will be hosting a few more in April. I'll let you know about those in a few weeks. Until then, you can always browse their massive online tall collection and get Free Shipping on orders of $30 or more!
May the new year bring you good health, much happiness, and fabulous tall clothes that fit! Where to start looking? Here, of course!
Did you know that National Free Shipping Day is a thing?! If you didn't...surprise!! It's today! This day was created for those last minute shoppers who need a big reminder that they better get those orders placed if they want to get them under the tree in time.
Several tall retailers are taking part, plus adding on extra discounts as well. To check them out, click here.
So, if you have your eyes on a certain pair of long inseam jeans or a perfect tall dress (or anything else tall for that matter), go on and gift yourself! And do it today so you save on the shipping. Times a-tickin'! :)
It's been a busy past few days...from Thanksgiving to Black Friday to, now, Cyber Monday. Is your head spinning yet?! Fortunately for those who didn't get around to shopping this past weekend or for those who still have their eyes on a particular something, you get your second chance today. Treat yourself! I bought some tall clothes last Friday, but I just may hop back online and snag a few more items today as well. The deals are hard to pass up! :)
For a few examples of today's promos, see below. For a list of all current Cyber Monday deals, click here.
Black Friday. Either you love it or you dread it. Personally, I love it because it's a great time to buy tall clothing...and I don't even have to wait in those long store lines. Retailers offer Black Friday discounts on their websites, which works for us tall ladies since that's where we have to buy our clothes anyway.
Take the time to make a list of all the tall clothing you're needing and shop around today and through this weekend. You're bound to get some kind of deal, if not a great deal!

It's that time of year again when Long Tall Sally hosts tall clothing pop up shops across the country (yeah!!). This weekend, September 15 and 16, they will be in the Big Apple, New York City. I know there are a lot of tall fashionable ladies in that area, so go check it out! Other pop up shops this month will be in LA Long Beach in California and also Phoenix, Arizona.

Before I get into the sales, I first want to say a great big THANK YOU to all the brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives to bring peace and protection to our country. And, while this is a national day of remembrance in the U.S., there are many fighting for peace all over the world and deserve appreciation as well. So, thank you.
In honor of Memorial Day, many retailers traditionally offer discounts and sales online and in stores. If you're looking to add to your summer collection, now would be a great time to do that...and, snag a nice bargain along the way.

Hey, friends! I just wanted to pass along some info from tall shop, Alloy Apparel. They took feedback from customers (like myself!) who were frustrated with having to pay extra just for buying tall sizes and made a change...all tall sizes are now the same price as non-tall sizes! The same goes for their plus sizes as well. No extra cost added!
I applaud Alloy for listening to their tall customers. We don't want to pay extra just because we have long legs and long arms. This is a good move by the company. Thanks, Alloy!
On another positive note, they have also restocked a number of jeans and pants in their tall collection. I know a lot of you have been waiting for this and will be happy to hear it. Below are just a few items that are either new arrivals or restocked favorites.
And as always, you get free shipping on orders over $100!
Avery Bootcut Jean (in up to a 39" inseam!)
Visit Alloy to take a look at all the other new and restocked items. And, enjoy the new pricing change! :)
For all of my tall friends in the New York City area, Long Tall Sally will be hosting a pop up shop this weekend on March 31st and April 1st. I know many of you get super excited when these temporary shops come into town, so get ready!
You will find items from LTS' new 2017 spring collection as well as tall basics such as jeans and pants and large size shoes. Have fun and enjoy, New Yorkers!
Tall sale alert! And, it's a good one! Eddie Bauer is having a huge sale right now and they are offering 40% off everything...even clearance. Whenever I see that a discount applies to items that are already on sale, that's when I jump in and buy. Why not, right? Buying tall clothing is expensive enough, so I may as well get some on the cheap when I can.
All winter, I've been wanting an ultra light, ultra warm vest. I just saw this one on clearance at Eddie Bauer and I snagged it. Regular price was $149.00, on clearance for $69.99, but with the 40% off I got it for $41.99!
MicroTherm StormDown Vest in Tall
$41.99 (72% off!)
I can't wait until my vest gets here! Yes, winter is pretty much over where I live in Texas, but at least I have it going forward.
Below are some of the other pieces I am considering buying while they are on sale.
Sweatshirt Sweater Henley in Tall
$17.99 (74% off!)
Passenger Ponte Pants in 36" Inseam
$32.39 (64% off!)
Tranquil Dress in Tall
$17.99 (82% off!)
Yukon Classic Down Jacket in Tall
$65.99 (70% off!)
These are just a few of what's available. There are 180 items in Eddie Bauer's tall women's clearance section alone. Of course, everything on the site is 40% off and I see some great new arrivals as well. Be sure to check them out and save some money!
Dare to bare. Your shoulders that is. Off-the-shoulder tops were a thing back in the 90's and have found a resurgence in popularity over this past year. They seem to be everywhere these days. And, now, even TALL open-shoulder tops can be found!
So, what do you think of the shoulder-baring trend? I never indulged in the look back in the 90's, but I'm liking it now. It's very feminine with just a tad of sexy, the perfect fashion combo I'd say. You can show off a bit of skin without revealing too much. It's an easy and subtle way to say to the world, "I'm feeling sexy and confident and I'm not afraid to show it!"
If you haven't dared to bare yet, go for it. I'm telling you, it's empowering...sexy...and fun!
Recently, I told you about Alloy Apparel's new line of tall women's shapewear. In all the excitement of a brand new tall category being unveiled, I chose to try out a pair of their shapewear leggings...and they certainly did not disappoint. Super comfortable, super long!
