Need a New Source for Great Shoes? Try Avon!

I’ll admit it. Even in the face of sensational savings, there are certain companies I just don’t think about when I’m shopping. I might have friends and family members who raise their hands to testify to that company’s greatness, but no, for some reason or another, I just won’t shop there. Call me odd if you like, but I love it when I’m wrong!

Not just a cosmetics company anymore, Avon is my third store-of-choice for shoes this week, which may be a surprise to many readers. However, I’ve been exploring the Avon site, finding a larger selection of products than I ever expected — and if you shop online with an Avon representative, your shipping is free on orders of $40 or more. Still, that’s not why I’m at Avon today — this is why I’m here:

Avon - Cushion Walk Suede Shoe Booties

The Cushion Walk Suede Shoe Booties are a brand new style from Avon, and to introduce them, the price is reduced from $44.99 to $39.99, a savings of 11%. Genuine suede, a wear-with-anything gray, a 3.25-inch heel that’s eased by a three-quarter-inch platform under the sole, and the patented Cushion Walk footbed makes these a beautiful choice. Any time you can find high-quality boots like these for less than $50, grab them!

Here’s another fresh new look for fall — simply called the Stud Details Peep-Toe Shoes, you’re looking at remarkably well-made faux suede with a four-inch heel, again relieved by a one-inch stacked platform, altogether giving the bottom of the shoes the lovely illusion of wood grain, and it’s 14% off for only $29.99. I love how these look — the tiny studs around every edge of the durable suede-like fabric, the way it looks on the foot — they’re gorgeous:

I’ve got one more style to share, and at a price of just $29.99, I think I’ll be buying these for myself!

The Sophisticates Edge Peep-Toe Wedges combines a shimmering gray faux snakeskin with a raffia wrapped wedge platform, and they’re so on-trend yet so versatile, I’d wear them with everything! Wedges are usually casual shoes, with rare exceptions that work well as dress shoes, but this style is too classy to be limited to jeans and capris or a sundress:

Still searching for the perfect handbag or tote for this fall? Once again, Avon knows what’s going in with fashion trends, and their Avon mark Slither and Slouch Bag proves my point. Available in dark gray or a natural tone, it’ll be difficult to decide which faux snakeskin bag best fits your wardrobe, but at 33% off while quantities last, you might consider picking up one of each:

With one of these bags and any of the shoes above, you’ve got a perfectly coordinated set of accessories; very nice!

Whether you’re new to the company or you remember the Avon Lady from decades ago, Avon is full of new surprises, so check them out for the first time or give them a second look. Though you don’t have to shop with an Avon representative, remember that you do get free shipping for spending $40 or more for enlisting help, and as I mentioned in Monday’s article about the benefits you can gain by shopping at certain sites, the Avon representative is your Personal Shopper, there to work for you, for free! Between greatly expanded product lines, high quality choices, and remarkably low prices, you’re going to be very pleased with Avon!
