Prada eliminated their presale policy a few seasons ago but that doesn't mean that it's impossible to get top pick ahead of sale season. We've been told that the official sale will begin December 1 but... but... you can let a sales person know if there's something you really want.
The markdown sheets had not been released at the time we received our top-secret information but rumors we suspect that the discount on shoes and clothing will be 40%. We feel confident betting that bi-color Mary-Jane boots will be included in the markdown along with more traditional boots and booties.
We believe that the braded style bags will be part of the discount merchandise but don't count on much else. As a matter of fact, we were told the prices were increased on most of the classic Prada handbag selection. For example, the Saffiano Lux tote was $1560 but is now $1630. That's $130 difference or about 10%, which would have normally covered the tax.
Just one more reason to make friends with those who live in Jersey...
