Since 2008 vegan coat company Vaute Couture has been keeping ethical buyers true to their values and super warm in coats that could double as pieces of art. Founder Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart uses cutting edge eco-fabrics, constructs beautiful designs, and makes all her garments right here in the USA.

Those in the know love this time of year because VC starts their preorders. Anyone who does a preorder, gets one hefty discount. If you are the ordering online type, today only you will get a 50% discount on new coats. (The coats should be on the site any second now.) Want to try on your dream coat in person? Then check out Leanne’s tour schedule so you can look, touch, try on, get free hugs and cupcakes all at the same time.

As far as discounts go at the pop up shops and in her flagship Brooklyn store, we’ll direct you to VC’s blog since there are a lot of details and perks to consider. One of my favorites? Bring a pregan (pre vegan) coat and get a $50 discount on coats from previous seasons or a $25 discount on current coats. Those pregan coats will be donated to the homeless.

One thing to note: You can’t simply see where VC is going to be on tour and show up. You must make an appointment, and from experience I know that appointments fill up fast. So get in there.

You can count the vegan world’s heaviest hitters among Vaute Couture’s fans. Emily Deschanel wore one of her favorite designs on “Bones.” Alicia Silverstone loves VC and their coats so much that she asked Leanne to start her own column on “The Kind Life.” Even Oprah has gotten in on the public love of VC coats, tees, hats and dresses. (This writer isn’t immune to her charms either. I have my own beautiful coat.)

So go get your early bird discount. You’ll stay warm, sexy and ethical all winter long.
