Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle Both Own This Tote Bag — and It’s on Sale
Finding an affordable tote bag that’s Kate Middleton- and Meghan Markle-approved and still in stock is an impossible task. But both royals have worn the Longchamp Le Pliage Tote more than a handful of times, and it’s still available at Nordstrom for $145. This has nothing to do with the Markle Sparkle fading — that’ll likely never, ever, happen. Instead, it’s most likely because 30 million people already own the water-resistant nylon tote.
Longchamp’s Le Pliage Tote is undeniably one of the most popular tote bags ever made. You’re just as likely to see it on a college campus as you are on a royal’s arm. Because the bag is so popular, it rarely ever goes on sale. But during Nordstrom’s Cyber Sale, anything is possible — and so many newer versions of the Longchamp Le Pliage are deeply discounted. The OG version isn’t for sale, but that doesn’t matter since you probably already own it anyway.
Instead, you’ll find a larger and sleeker all-gray version marked down to $175. There’s also a loud red statement-making floral-print Longchamp Le Pliage that’s up for grabs at 33 percent off. And if nylon isn’t your thing, some luxe lambskin versions of the tote are available for almost $300 less than their original prices. Sure, Middleton and Markle haven’t worn them yet, but you might as well beat them to it. Chances are, a couple million people already have.
