Last weekend, our team started working on our annual holiday gift guides. We decided to start with a Cyber Monday bargain roundup, but felt we would be doing a disservice to the community if that roundup included the BIGGEST BARGAINS at CORPORATE GIANTS. Shifting our focus, we decided to feature small queer owned and operated style brands that are serving our readers. So, we reached out to a number of our these brands and requested an insider discount just for YOU.
1. 50% off Short and Long Sleeve Button Downs at Peau de Loup
Peau De Loup (PDL) is a Vancouver based apparel company specializing in button-downs for female bodied individuals. In addition to using environmentally friendly upcycled fabrics, PDL donates one dollar per shirt sold to educate women at the Al-Ihsan Women Center, a non-profit organization that supports and provides education to underprivileged Muslim women in Bangladesh. For every five shirts sold, PDL is able to give one more girl an education.
PDL is offering dapperQ readers 50% off long and short sleeve button-down shirts on Cyber Monday only. Offer starts on 12/1/2014 at 12:00AM EST and ends on 12/1/2104 at 11:59PM EST. Enter code IUY6KZ6CH05O at checkout.
