It’s the first ever Bridal Blow-out sale at Lord & Taylor, with designer bridal gowns clearance priced as low as $99.99 and bridesmaid dresses at $59.99. The sale is only at the Fifth Avenue store, only on Saturday, August 13th, only from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. These are current spring and summer gowns, including stock from other Lord & Taylor store locations, but probably will not include the best-selling gowns inspired by Kate Middleton and Pippa Middleton by designer Allen Schwartz. You must register to attend — that’s easy — just send an email to RSVP@LordandTaylor with Bridal Sale in the subject line. You will be given a wristband when you check in at the store’s front entrance, and only customers wearing wristbands will be allowed into the Bridal Salon. Each person who registers can bring up to two guests, and you can bring up to three dresses at a time into the communal dressing room. Bridal Blow-out attendees also have the chance to win a $500 Lord & Taylor shopping spree.

Shop Runner is a new service that gives you free two-day shipping from major department stores and on-line merchandisers, including Lord & Taylor, Sports Authority, eBags, Drugstore.com, Pet Smart, and free delivery from Domino’s Pizza. Sign up for a FREE Shop Runner 30-day trial of unlimited two-day shipping. Keep, but keep track of the days, since you’ll have to use a credit card to sign up for the free trial, and Shop Runner costs $79 a year after that. You can cancel within the 30-day free trial without being charged $79. Since a lot of companies — including Lord & Taylor — already offer free shipping for orders over $99, you’ll have to sit down with your calculator and decide whether the $79 a year deal is a good one. Or not.
