9 Dec


So…I’m not a big Black Friday shopper but like you, I get a lot of emails about sales and deals and whatnot. Talbots sent me a notice that they had everything 50% off with free shipping and that’s the kind of deal that gets my attention so I went and looked at their sweaters. Do you know who will never have enough sweaters? Me. That is your answer.

And APPARENTLY they created a special intarsia cashmere sweater commemorating the opening of their first store in 1947. Do you know who loves the 1940’s? Also me. Not to mention that I love Talbots enough to wear an image of their first store on an intarsia sweater. I loved Talbots in college, when it was 100% not cool because that was in the 1990’s and “grunge” was popular…photographic evidence indicates that I never noticed the whole “grunge” trend because I wore Cole-Haan loafers for pretty much the whole decade.

Talbots has a special place in my heart because I helped open the Hanover, NH store. I also worked at and then assistant managed the Chattanooga, TN store over a period of several years. I love selling preppy clothes! So…what sealed the deal on this particular sweater is that it’s a limited run of 300. There are only 300 of these sweaters for Talbots nerds to buy. Are there actually 300 of us?


I don’t know but I am #7. The seventh biggest Talbots nerd in possibly the world and I have the intarsia sweater to prove it.

Whatever y’all are, be a good one. #7 at least.

P.S. Thanks Mother for the sweater! Love you!

    Oh, dear mentee/sister – I too was wearing Talbots in college. Case in point: my red corduroy JUMPER I wore every Christmas. I LOVED that dress… (and come to think of it – wonder what could have possibly happened to it!). xxoxo – Merry Christmas!
