Garage Sneak Peek & My Favorites from the Talbots and the Amazon Prime Sale

There are so many great sales going on right now! Talbots has a huge sale going on and here are some of my favorites.

I love, love, love their linen tunics and have quite a few. They are perfect for wearing on super hot days since they keep the sun off of your arms, yet are so airy, light, and breathable. This beautiful aqua-colored tunic is on sale 40% off. It was originally $89.50, was marked down to $69.99, and now it’s 40% off the sale price. You’ll find it on sale here: Linen Top. (Note: The sale price appears once the item is in your basket.)


I love this top, the colors are soo pretty! It’s currently on sale from $89.50, marked down now to $29.99. You’ll find it on sale here: Pink and Aqua Floral Top.


This gorgeous top was originally $109. I can’t believe it’s now on sale for 29.99! What a great sale! You’ll find it here: Eyelet Top.


I’ve been eyeing this dress all spring. I briefly saw it in the store when I was shopping in person one day and it’s even prettier in person. They have it listed as a Midi dress but I think it’s more of a Maxi. Even on the taller model, it looks like a maxi to me. I always  prefer maxi over midi. It was originally $159 and now it’s on sale for $49.99! You’ll find it on sale here: Paisley Maxi Dress.


The shoes are on sale, too! You’ll find the sale here: Big Shoe Sale. See everything that’s currently on sale in this big summer sale here: Talbot’s Summer Sale.


Amazon is having its 2-Day Prime Sale right now! This iRobot vacuum is super tempting me. I had one many, many years ago and used it for a long time. They have gotten even better so I may end up buying one during the sale. The regular iRobot Roomba is currently 43% off, on sale down from $349.99 to $199.99 with free returns. I like the free return policy because if you try it and don’t like it, you just box it back up and return it. You’ll find this one on sale here: iRobot Roomba Vacuum.


If you would like the iRobot that returns back to its docking station when it’s finished so it’s always charged and ready to go, you’ll find that version on sale here: iRobot with Docking Station and Automatic Dirt Disposal. That’s the kind I want, love that it will re-dock/rehome itself when it’s finished vacuuming!



I just purchased this awesome charging station. I may use it here on my desk or it may just go with me when I visit family. I love that it has 8 WIDE outlets and 4 USB charging ports! It’s currently part of a Prime Day FLASH sale here: Charging Station with 8 Wide Outlets and 4 USB Charging Ports.



The Bose Quiet Comfort Noise Canceling Earbuds that I purchased recently and LOVE are on sale today…part of the Prime Day sale. They work with both Android and Apple phones. You’ll find them available here: Bose QuietComfort Noise Canceling Earbuds.

Bose Wireless Earbuds


If you need a TV, TVs are on sale today. Can’t believe you can get a 32-inch TV for $99.99! They even offer wall mounting which I think is priced really reasonably, too. You’ll find this TV available here: 32-Inch TV.



I never thought I’d see a 75-inch, 4-K TV on sale for $749! These sales are amazing! You can see all the ones below that are currently on sale here: TV Sale.


Garage Update:

Here’s that sneak peek I promised–I’ll be sure to share more real soon. The new lighting has exceeded my expectations, I love it! Oh my gosh, what a difference it has made in this garage! The new lights have three settings and I’ll do a more in-depth post very soon sharing the details and which setting I love best. I’m so glad I chose this lighting–even the electrician/electrical company I chose to install it was great and so reasonably priced. I will share my progress for this garage remodel very soon. In the meantime, you can check out the lighting I chose for more details here: Low Profile LED Lighting.


Happy Shopping!

  1. Those flush garage lights are a great idea; it’s how they should be done in all garages.

  2. Great picks, as always! Thanks for the tips, and Happy Tuesday! 🙂

  3. I have three of those linen tunics and they are really awesome. Lighting in garage looks great!

    Love the low profile LED garage lighting!! Better lighting at less expense! A win/win.

    • I was surprised by how reasonably priced they are since everything is so expensive these days. Supposedly, the bulbs will never need to be changed and the electrician agreed that was true. I can’t believe how bright they are! Thanks, Maureen!

  6. Great reviews!

    Hi Susan!
    I just ordered the linen tunic in blue, thanks for the tip! This is the robovac I have. It is great!

  8. This post was timely because I have long been looking for ways in which to improve the lighting in my dimly lit garage. Thanks for this.

    Hi, Susan,

    Just like you, I love Talbot’s for clothing. I shop there pretty much exclusively. They have a wide range of sizes for almost everyone, petite, plus, CURVY, etc.

    I am wondering what you think about the logo tee. I could really use a long sleeve exercise tee with sun protection. The colors are great. The sale prices are great.

    I think they would have already been gone by now, except for the fact that there is a “Talbot’s” logo in large letters down one arm and on the front in small letters where a pocket would be.

    What do you think of these?

    • Wow, I’ve never seen those before. Interesting! I doubt I will buy one but it would be a nice way to support the brand. I shop there almost exclusively, too. Occasionally I order from other places like Lilly Pulitzer or Tommy Bahama, but I really love Talbot’s quality and the styles they carry. I also really like their curvy line because their pants fit my hips without gaping at the waist. I just wish they sold the curvy line in their stores–it’s only available online, or at least my Talbots doesn’t stock it.
      Another thing I love about Talbots is their models look happy! I don’t know why the models for so many brands look so miserable in the clothes they are wearing–like there’s some rule that you can’t model clothing and look happy at the same time. lol

    • Allie, do you think you’ll buy one? Another thing I don’t like about that particular tee is it’s 86% polyester and 14% spandex. I really dislike the feel of polyester against my skin. Makes me hot just to think about it. I try to stick with cotton or linen during the spring and summer months.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
