Shop It To Me Search: Take a Tour

Fashion rule of thumb: One size does not fit all (unless you’re a fan of the shapeless-sack-as-shirt aesthetic).

With this in mind, we’ve created a shopping universe filled with only your own personal sizes and favorite brands.  You may have seen our sale website before – we just added a bunch of new features, including a search bar, and we’ve aptly named it Shop It To Me Search. It’s only available for Shop It To Me members, so if you haven’t signed up, join now for free at www.shopittome.com.

Let’s take a tour!

1. Search for specific items or trends. Shopping for a specific trend, like a military-inspired jacket? Enter keyword “military” in the search box and hit “Search” to find what’s available.

2. See your last Salemail. If you can’t access your Salemail, click “Last Salemail” to see only the items in your most recent email.

3. Shop by price or discount. Now let’s say you want to browse all your sales, but stick to items $100 or less. Just use the price filters to narrow your selections. And while you’re at it, set a minimum discount range (say, 50% or more) to see only the steepest markdowns.

4. Filter your sales by brand, clothing type or retailer. Want to see all the Marc Jacobs shoes on sale in your size right now? (We know –we’re mind readers.) Just  use the filters on the left and specify the clothing category and brand.

5. View extra coupons. Just like in your Salemail, any extra discounts or coupon codes will appear beneath the name of the retailer, so be sure to use these codes at checkout. For example, when Nordstrom had free shipping for orders of $100 or more, we listed the code HOLIDAY10 in this area.

Salemail been particularly exciting lately? At Shop It To Me, we’ve been busy the past few weeks adding a slew of new retailers.  You may have seen we recently added J. Crew’s sister site Madewell, Swedish sensation Acne and winter outpost Moosejaw. Now we’re excited to announce our latest additions, All Saints and Lacoste.

If you already have these brands selected, get ready for even more sales – straight from their stand-alone online stores.

If you haven’t, now is the time to add them.

Lacoste: Where would polo shirts be without this classic, upscale label? The brand has been around since 1933 and is the go-to choice for crisp, high-end shirts and shoes.

All Saints: United Kingdom-based All Saints brings laid-back British style across the pond the to the US too. We love their casual-luxe jackets and slouchy basics.

Make sure to add Lacoste and All Saints as brands so you don’t miss out on their sales. Just log in to your account, click Edit Brands, and make sure you’re on the All Brands tab to find them.

And We Have Another Hire!

Meet Anthony, the newest member of the Shop It To Me team. Since he provided such eloquent responses to all my questions I will forgo the paraphrasing and give you his real words.


Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Michigan but in the last 13 years I’ve lived in Hungary, Austria, California, North Carolina, Austria again, and finally California again.  I first visited San Francisco when I was 15 and fell in love with the city, choosing to move here from Austria because I think it offers the best quality of life of any city in the US.

What are your hobbies?
Traveling, drums, fitness/nutrition, snowboarding, and electronic music

Do you have any hidden talents?
3-ball juggling, though nothing too fancy ;-)  That, and abilities in German, Spanish, Farsi, and Hungarian.

What excited you most about joining Shop It To Me?
I love finding a good deal on clothes so naturally, the nature of SITM’s service appealed to me.  In terms of an engineering challenge, I wanted to be in a small(-ish) Rails shop with fellow top-notch engineers where my contributions would be seen by scores of passionate users and I could have an impact for years to come.

Anything else you would like to share?

I maintain a blog at the The Bull Og

Thanks for the great interview Anthony and welcome to Shop It To Me!

New Employees at Shop It To Me!

Here at Shop It To Me we’ve been very busy in the last couple of months–we launched Shop It To Me UK, redesigned our website, and continue to bring stylish bargains to your inbox at your convenience. In order to keep up with all the excitement, our headquarters staff continues to grow (and we’re still hiring!).  We’d love to introduce our latest team additions to you:

Vivian recently moved to San Francisco from Boston and has been busy furnishing her house ever since. Her favorite places to shop in the Boston area are Tannery and Dress (readers: Vivian has great style, so definitely go check these out!) and she recently came back from her honeymoon in Indonesia! Her biggest pet peeve is when blogs fail to give you spoiler alerts. Vivian has a special message for all of our Shop It To Me users: “I’m excited to join the team as a product manager aka professional online shopper. To all the SITM fans, I welcome your feedback. Let me know how I can help make your shopping experience better.”

Rahul just joined the team as an engineering intern and in his spare time enjoys eating vegan food, playing tennis, and going for runs around San Francisco. He is proficient in Hindi and knows all the capitals of every country in the world! He’s excited to be working at Shop It To Me because “I not only get to learn technical skills from our amazing engineers, but I become more and more fashionable each day!”

Laura is an MBA student at Berkeley who enjoys running, yoga, cooking, skiing and reading. She loves to shop at J.Crew, Dish (SF boutique), Saks, Barneys, and Books Inc. Her most exotic travel destination to date is Kakamega, Kenya and she compares herself to George Clooney in Up in the Air–she hates slow people at the airport!

Neil just joined the engineering team and since his arrival has already learned much more about women’s clothing sizes than he ever could have imagined. His favorite travel destination is Paris, France, however, he is fluent in Spanish. Aside from his uncanny knowledge of computers he also has the amazing ability to wiggle both his ears and his eyebrows!

From all of us here at Shop It To Me we’d like to say welcome aboard, we’re thrilled to have such a talented group of new employees!
