Summer Shopping at Deer Valley

Summer sales are my jam. That’s when I pick up technical base layers at bargain prices, reduced-price ski pants off of the kids’ racks (for my kids and their vertically challenged mom), and lots of other winter gear basics that always seem to be in short supply in our house once the snow flies. So imagine my delight when I was strolling past the Deer Valley Signatures store at Silver Lake Village one day this summer and found a sweater. Not just any sweater, mind you, but one I’ll call The Sweater of Joy.

See, in the last few months, I’ve been reading “The Magical Art of Tidying Up,” by Marie Kondo, and I made a commitment to only acquiring (and keeping) items for myself that bring me JOY. This sweater passed the test on so many levels. First, it was available only in my size. Not too big, not too small. My size. Second, it was displayed on a rack outside the door, marked “SALE.” Bargain! Yay! The original price had been scratched out, a price about 50 percent lower had been penciled in. Third, and perhaps most importantly, it elicited a bunch of groans from my kids. “You’re buying that, Mom?” they aren’t always on board with my predilection for polka dots or for mixing bright hues in a single garment. It embarrasses them. SOLD.

I was so convinced that owning this sweater would bring me joy that I didn’t even try it on. (My mother-in-law, visiting us for the weekend, was shocked that I would purchase any item of clothing without trying it on. But hey, sometimes you’ve got to live on the edge, right?) I knew it would be the perfect piece to layer year-round bright enough to show flair at a summer concert, after sunset, or to lend a pop of color to a snowy day.

Truth be told, there was a rack full of awesome bargains. Leather jackets, marked down to well-below mid-winter prices, more sweaters, some pants. But the thing is, I knew not one of these other garments, no matter how lovely, would match this sweater in the JOY department. So off I went to the register, wherein I was greeted with yet another surprise, the sweater’s revised price tag did not reflect an additional discount being offered that day. I’m calling it a win.

You can grab the last of the summer sale items this weekend (September 19 and 20, 2015) at the Signatures store at Silver Lake Lodge before it closes for the season. Or stop by the Signatures Store on Park City’s Historic Main Street this fall. Let me know if you find any hot deals.
