Stoney Clover Lane Saturday Picks


Here are some of my picks for the Stoney Clover Lane Saturday sale! The sale is Saturday November 6th. Stoney Clover never has sales so this is the time to stock up on core items, patches, and limited edition items that are included. Click any picture above to shop the items on the day of the sale. It'll take you directly to the product page. 

Stoney Clover Saturday Sale Tips 2021!


It is almost Stoney Clover Saturday! If you are new here Stoney Clover Lane does a sale once a year called Stoney Clover Saturday. This year the sale is November 6th, we are still waiting for a time to be announced. The sale will exclude a few items but almost everything is 20% off. They hardly do sales on their own site so this is the time to stock up if you want anything still currently on the website! This includes core colors, patches, and select collections & collaborations. Below is my post from last year's Stoney Clover Saturday updated for this year! A lot of the information is still relevant but I made minor changes and update to show new items. 


Answering some of the questions you submitted on Instagram, plus some commonly asked questions I get! 

Q: What item do you get the most use of if you could only have ONE thing? 
A: My most used pouch is the mini by far. It is great for everyday use or travel. Everyday you can use it in your work bag, purse, tote, school bag, gym bag, whatever you are using! I have a mini pouch for daily use to keep things like tissues, lipstick, lip balm, medicine, and other essentials. I also have a mini pouch that I use on the plane to keep all my plane essentials. When I get to my seat I take out the plane pouch and put it in the seat pocket. That way I don't have to dig through my bag to get things while on board! Also, the mini is one of the more affordable pouches. So I think it is a great place to start in general! 

Q: What are your favorite SCL core colors? 
A: Flamingo, grape, and sand. Also like lilac! 

Q: What are your favorite patches? 

Q: Best SCL item to give as a gift? 
A: Okay so I'm going to answer this in multiple parts because why not! Best stocking stuffer I would say is the luggage tag. I think the luggage tag anyone can use. Would make a great affordable gift, they are cute plain or with a patch, and can go with any bag or suitcase someone may already own! Best overall gift I would say is the small pouch. It is a happy medium between mini and large and is a good starter item for someone new or for someone who has a collection! Can be used for lots of different reasons. For someone on a budget I would say the clear travel pouch is also a good option! They are super cute plain and $34 so under $40!

Q: Is it worth the price? What sets it apart? 
A: I'm glad someone asked this question because I get it a lot! Not even just for Stoney Clover Lane but for other items. Here is my thing with Stoney Clover, the quality is amazing! I've had a billion makeup bags prior to really investing in Stoney Clover. They last you a year, they get all gross, then you throw them away and go get another one. I've had some of my Stoney Clover Lane bags/ pouches for 4 years and I still use them! If they are dirty you can wipe them down, the zippers are AMAZING, and overall they just hold up very well.  Prior to SCL I used a Vera Bradley makeup bag and it got so ratchet so quick. But, my SCL bags have held up. I have to mention that I travel A LOT. Normally I travel probably every other week for work and take a personal trip or vacation every three months. It really depends but on average. So my price per use is much lower. If you travel once every 5 years it may not be worth it. For my case I am constantly traveling, packing, and I have to be organized or I'm a mess! That is also another way I think it is worth the price. Again if you don't travel a ton that may be different for you personally! Also want to mention I never recommend buying something you can't afford. No matter what it is! At the end of the day none of us NEED these pouches. They are fun and help keep us organized but not a necessity. If you are on a budget I suggest starting with a clear travel pouch. It is their most affordable pouch and can be used a ton of different ways! Start there and see if you like the brand then go from there! 

Q: Worried that things will sell out while I shop... any strategy you recommend for shopping? 
A: Last year I believe they "shut the site down" right before the sale launched. But, I would make sure you know EXACTLY what you want going into the sale. Place any items you want in the cart the day before the sale in case your cart will still be there! I honestly don't know if it will but worth the try. Create a Stoney Clover account ahead of time and put in your shipping and billing info for easy checkout. I would also plan on shopping the sale right when it opens (they have not released this time yet!). The earlier you shop the better. If you want items from limited edition collections I'd focus on those first. Core items are less likely to sell out, but still possible. Popular colors I feel like are: sand, noir, flamingo, grape, etc. So if you want those colors I'd also focus on those! If you are SUPER worried I would place two orders. Get your must haves in the first order then go back for more if needed. Obviously you will have to pay the shipping twice but that's a call to make on your end!  

Q: What SCL do you find yourself using the most?
A: I semi answered this already but my top used SCL items are: mini pouch, tote bag, fanny pack, and the clear travel pouch. I used my fanny a TON in the summer and when I first got it. It'll be harder to use now that I have to wear a giant parka. I use the tote bag to bring mail to the post office, if I have to run an errand, or for overnight trips! Mini pouch and clear travel pouch I use every time I travel. I have two travel pouches one for toiletries and one for makeup. Then the mini pouches I kind of already explained! But I'd say right now I use those four items the most. It is kind of always changing though! 

Q: I'm new to SCL! What would you recommend for a first time buyer? 
A: This is hard to answer but I can walk you through my progression! 

 1) Start out with mini pouch and small pouch to start. Those were my first two! To save money start without any patches. You can always add patches. But, saving on the embroidery is helpful and keep the pouches less expensive without the extra cost of patches. You can also buy patches and glue them on yourself to save money. 
            2) Next I'd recommend the clear pouches like the travel pouch or the mini clear open top from terry (there is minimal stock left in those though). I reach for those A LOT while traveling now. 
            3) From there I'd go to either fanny pack or large pouch. I use my fanny A LOT but I feel like that is more personal if you like fanny packs or not. The large is good for a big makeup bag to hold everything. But I find the small and a clear travel can also do the trick. 

As a first time buyer I would say you can skip the flat pouches and backpacks. I don't use those as much. I have a lot of old flat pouches I hardly use but I am a hoarder and probably won't ever get rid of them! I think the backpacks are cute but not a NEED in my opinion when first starting out. Unless you really need a backpack for something! I do love the duffles though but they can get pricy. So to summarize my top recommendations for new buyers are mini and small pouches.

Here is a little snapshot of my Stoney Clover Lane collection! If you want to see more of my collection check out my IGTV videos. I made them earlier in quarantine so I have gotten more items since they have been filmed. But you can get an idea of what I have and use! 

Are you shopping Stoney Clover Saturday? Hopefully you find this post helpful when deciding what to pick up from the sale! Let me know any questions on Instagram or in the comments below.

Sew Cute Holiday: Grandmillenial Gift Guide

Where are my grandmillenial ladies at? This gift guide is for you! If you are shopping for a classic gal any of these gifts would be perfect for her. A lot of these items are on my wishlist or brands that I love and own. 

If you are looking to support a small business this holiday season check out Grace and Grandeur. Her velvet hair bows are stunning and she is releasing a holiday collection soon. You can use the code SEWCUTESTYLE for a discount off your order! 

Dudley Stephens is an amazing brand and their fleece popovers make a great gift. A few years ago I got their park slope fleeces as gifts and I still wear them! They are perfect for being comfortable but chic. These bow platforms have been a best seller for me for a few weeks! Not only are they gorgeous but would make an amazing gift. Jewelry is always an easy gift idea and I love these chinoiserie pearl earrings or bow pearl drop earrings.
