Saks' "Private Night" is the unofficial start to sale season. The department store's best customers are invited to shop the discounts before the store officially goes on sale. This year, the private sale will run Thursday, May 6th and Friday, May 7th. The discount ranges from 30% to 40% off.
We almost went running to pre-sale our favorite Summer looks when our Saks specialist cautioned that most of the sale merchandise are not designer items. We are told, only some Marni, Zac Posen, and YSL will be included in this markdown along with a spattering of cruise collections. Shoe junkies will fare a bit better. There is an assortment of Manolos, Choos and Giuseppes included in this two day sale.
Pre-sale for Private Night is already under way. You can use this insider sale link to begin shopping online. We are told that the official summer sale will begin in two to three weeks. So it may not hurt to get down to Saks soon and work on putting your favorite items aside.
