Madison Avenue Round-up Part 1

For the past few weeks we have been uncovering the best discounts along Madison Avenue. As Thanksgiving approaches, the discounts are about to get more attractive. Below is a list of current and upcoming promotions that haven't been mentioned. Click here to see a list of all of our Madison Avenue stories, which include Gucci, Valentino, Dior, Missoni, Prada and Sigerson Morrison.

Chloe:
The sale doesn't officially start until Friday but you can preshop the discounts now. Shoes, clothing and a limited variety of bags will all be discounted 40% off.
Gisella 212-717-8220



Lisa Perry:
For Black Friday all black dresses will be discounted 30% off. We don't know if that means solid dresses--does the store even sell solid dresses--or if any dress with black detailing is included in the markdown. If you find yourself in a color dilemma, wait until December 1 and receive 20% off as part of a Shopafrolic event with Liz Lange and Jane Wagman. We can't get enough of the little girl dresses or the hoop bags.
212-334-1956 or esty@lisaperrystyle.com

Michael Kors:
The prefall collection is already reduced 50% and winter merchandise will be marked down the same amount following Thanksgiving.
Tony 212-452-4685



Marni:
Presale has not yet started but we hear that the markdown is coming soon. The first discount should be 30% but a 50% price reduction usually comes shortly later.
Dana 212-257-6907

Norma Kamali:
The Norma Kamali Black Friday sale will begin Wednesday. We hear that there will be seriously good deals. Select merchandise will all be priced $200 and under-- with most in the under $100 range. Sleeping bag coats in pink, cinder and cloud will be $125 to $175 from $650. (Perfect for keeping warm during the parade.) Silk satin gowns that were originally $2700, will be marked down to $200. The promotion takes a break for turkey day but will resume Friday.
212-957-9797



YSL:
Presales will begin next week and the discount should be 30% to 40% off, depending on the item. The 57th Street location is plush with merchandise. We also hear that other locations will be transferring their merchandise to NYC too. We have a feeling there will be super discounts come January/Feb.

Called Chloe and they said they are not starting pre-sale until after Thanksgiving.
