We apologize in advance but we are going to take off for the rest of the year. We wouldn't want to leave you hanging so we put together a list of sales you're not going to want to miss.
In the meantime, you can always
email us with your inside shopping tips. If we can find a reliable network we'll be sure to pass on the information along with your unique spy name. Happy Holidays, Healthy New Year!
1. Saks Fifth Avenue
Starting Wednesday morning, Saks will be enticing shoppers with an additional 50% off from 8am until noon for a total savings of up to 70% off. After the clock strikes noon the additional savings drops to just 40% off sale items. So set your alarm clocks or presale tomorrow.
Right after the first of the year, luxury e-tailer, Net-a-Porter has starts a second markdown where many reduced items are an additional 25% off for a total savings of almost 70%. Of course you can wait for this merchandise to hit TheOutNet but why wait?
3. Manolo Blahnik
The Manolo Blahnik usually starts their first markdown immediately after New Years. The discount is normally 33% off but if you can wait three weeks prices are slashed to 50%. Then right when you think your winter blues can't get any worse, Manolo starts their February clearance sale where shoes are discounted up to 75% off.
4. Ralph Lauren
When Ralph Lauren slashes up to 70% off we've been known to raid the Rhinelander Mansion for cashmere sweaters for ourselves. The best part is that most of the stock that's left is a size xs, which is just perfect for us. Just be careful, prices in the store don't always match up online. So bring your iPad so that you can price compare.
5. Barneys Electric Holiday
The Barneys Lady Gaga Workshop might have been genius but the Disney holiday theme is a bit too Times Square for most of us north of 57th Street. Following the New Year, expect to find Mini Ears and Goofy towels for 40% to 70% off.
