Black Magic

black magic To celebrate the launch of its new black pants, Gap is hosting The Black Magic Event in 10 select stores across the country  tomorrow August 14, and the Philadelphia store is on the list! So is the Edna, Minnesota store, and we're willing to bet those chicks are even more excited than we are. The Walnut Street store opens at 9:00 a.m., but you may want to arrive early to this party: the first 50 people to arrive at Gap tomorrow morning will get a free pair of black pants (any style), and according to a Walnut Street Gap staffer, "There's definitely going to be a line." Bring in the coupon pictured above and get 25% off your entire purchase or 40% off if you use your Gap card. Can't make it to the store on Saturday? Don't fret. The 25% discount (and we're assuming the 40% discount as well, but the Walnut Street staffers were not able to confirm this) is good through August 22.

But let's not overlook the pants. After all, are they worth your time? The really skinny pants ($59.50) pique my curiosity the most. Skinny black pants can easily work as an alternative to leggings when your ensemble calls for more substantial fabric on bottom, and, though the really skinny cut seems to have some give, I imagine these pants would tuck nicely into boots. 40% off the really skinny pants = final price of $35.70!really skinnyThe slim crop pants ($49.50) look like a dead ringer for the J. Crew Minnie pants I loved so much last fall, and these bad boys will set you back only $29.70 after the 40% discount. slim cropClick here to see a full listing of the stores and times and to print the required coupon.
