Saks Friends & Family Presale Going on Now

Some might think it's premature to post about a sale that won't officially start for another week. We believe, you're too late if you are shopping the public sale. The Saks Fifth Avenue friends and family sale officially starts October 21st and presale started today. That means astute shoppers have been calling dibs on their shopping list all week long.

The markdown is 20% on clothing, shoes and accessories and 10% off cosmetics. If you're looking for eight floor shoes, most of the "pillars" are excluded. That means no Chanel, no Louboutin, no Prada, no Miu Miu. We are sure you get the idea. (We have the full exclusion list below.)

We're not exactly sure what that leaves but we would suggest concentrating on clothing and lipsticks.

If you still aren't sold on the virtues of presale, why not conduct your own little experiment. Shop Saks this week and then return once the official sale begins. We are positive you will be shocked by the amount of merchandise that is sold. It's really remarkable. Online shoppers can presale now by speaking to a customer service representative.

Hi there - it seems like Chloe is excluded as well, or so the online Saks rep told me. Boo.

Hi - Do you know if Louis Vuitton apparel is included? It never goes on sale in the boutique - do you know if it will go on sale in Saks? Thanks!

Do you need a Saks card to shop the pre-sale?

Louis vuitton never goes onsale. Lv will destroy product rather than discount.

2010 fall winter will be a large sale season. The economy is doing poorly and the market is down.

I updated the exclusion list below.

Yes, you need a saks card to presale or you can purchase now and get a price adjustment within 7 days.

LV NEVER goes on sale.

Actually Lila Saks card members can pre sale today and you can pre sale with a third party credit card (Amex, Visa, Etc.) on Saturday.

You can order now with code "friend6" but what's the point, everything is excluded. I have no interest in buying junk "contemporary."

The Bottega Veneta handbags and St. John items I tried to purchase were excluded from the sale
