I'm looking for winter biking pants

So I'm new to this whole bike commuting thing. I've been at it since the summer, but now it's getting cold and my usual outfit of shorts and a fleece isn't working. I need some pants. But, I don't want to be that guy who shows up at work with all kinds of crazy bike-racing spandex on. Suggestions? Here are some more particulars:
--Need something warm. I don't ride when it rains (at least not on purpose) so waterproof is not that important.
--Would prefer not something super-spandex style, unless you tell me that tights are much better for some reason.
--I ride home at night, so visibility is a plus
--Would like to order it on line for less than $100.
--I have to ride up an elevator to my job with lots of people in suits, so an old pair of sweats would be less good than something that looks kind of "nice" in a sporty kind of way.
