Gucci is starting its "private sale" on Friday, May 21. Unlike Missoni, which takes an immediate markdown, Gucci likes to ease into sale season. The boutiques usually only alerts their best customers to this exclusive sale period but casual shoppers are not often denied the markdown when its requested.
In past seasons, handbags were discounted 30% and shoes and ready-to-wear were 40% off. This is an unusually early start for Gucci's sale, which usually waits until the week before Memorial Day to start their markdown. The sale goes public June 1st. The last markdown is usually mid-July when discounts rage from 60% t0 75% off.
