Sale Rundown v2

These are the discounts in our neighborhood. None of these sales are as good as those at Saks but now that their inventory has been decimated here's where to go to get the best values. Keep in mind, however, many people overs-hopped at Sakes. I guess at least 20% of the inventory will be coming back so make friends with the sales people so that they keep an eye out for your heart's desire/ Happy shopping!

Bottega Veneta: The sale officially starts on Friday, November 28th but the pre-sale stated today. Fall/Winter 2008 merchandise is 30% off. In stock are large hobos in navy, red, purple and maple.

Carolina Herrera: The sale is currently underway and reductions are 50% off.

Chanel: The manager, Stephanie, says they haven't been told when the sale will officially start but she can do a "buy and hold." The pre-sale is now 40% off. No handbags or jewelry will be included in the sale but there are lots of shoe styles.
Stephanie 212-535-5505

You really understand the shopper's mind. Yes I can tell you that as soon as I pickup my order from Saks today, I will be returning a Black Cashmere MaxMara long sleeve t-shirt in small if anyone is interested.

Saks online sale is up this morning. Now 70% off everything that is on sale. The site didn't seem to be working earlier, and I called and was put on hold forever, but I was just able to place an order.

Not everything is 70% off. Louboutins and other brands are only 40% off.

Saks has been pulling out more Prada bags as the days go on. When I was there yesterday they had things that were not out on Friday. People are just buying faster than they can stock. Keep checking in with them, Jeanette was really helpful when I was there.

I saw Saks put out some of those Black Nylon tote bags yesterday (didn't realize they still made those). Have they put out any other bags?

You forgot to mention the Marc Jacobs sale. Fall 08 RTW and shoes are 70% off, and there's still a good selection. I got an amazing coat!

I love your blog, and depend on you for the most up to date sale news!
