Bergdorf Goodman Final Sale

Bergdorf Goodman will begin their latest markdown on Thursday with discounts ranging up to 75% off. Today we took a spin through the store to see what sale items are left for poaching. You can see a full photo album of clothing from our shopping trip right here and shoes and accessories are right this way.

In the handbag department all of the sale items have been moved to the 57th Street accessories atrium. Sale shoppers will find a small assortment of bags including a variety of Fendi bags and clutches, Alexander McQueen scull box clutches. Christian Louboutin bags and clutches, and several Proenza Schouler Kiri bags. Most bags are currently 50% off but we wouldn't be surprised if a few extra percentage point were removed in the near future.



Moving onto shoes, we were surprised to see how many shoes were still around this late in the season. We found an amazing variety that included Chanel, classic Loubtouin, McQueen, Charlotte Olympia, Manolo, Tom Ford and Celine. All shoes are currently priced at 50% off but we would be surprised if this wasn't the last markdown considering the vast amount of inventory that's still in stock.



The expansive sale inventory isn't only in the shoe department but extends to  incredible ready-to-wear pieces from most every designer in the store. Just keep in mind that the store is still in a transitional phase and price stickers are still being adjusted to reflect new markdowns. We imagine that the process will be completed by the end of the week. Shoppers can expect to find markdowns on clothing that range from 50% to 75% off.

Our first --and most dramatic-- find was a Dolce & Gabbana gown marked $33,000 from $55,000 (Calling this dress a gown is an understatement.) Items that are more versatile include a shift dress from The Row that is marked $795 from $1890, a Stella McCartney hot pink dress for $369 from $930, Proenza Schouler dress $1000 from $2600, a geometric print Miu Miu coat is $900 from $2250 and chunky Marni sweater is $300 from $760.

One floor up we found a selection of sale items from the more traditional designers like an Oscar de la Renta gown for $6000 from $1490, a Lanvin heart print wrap dress is $700 from $1790 and a Giambattista Valli dress for $709 from $1785.

As you can see some of these designer items are highly discounted but some holdouts include Bouchra Jarrar, which is still only 40% off.  We would expect a lot of price shifting through the end of the month and suggest shopping now and shopping later and then shopping again, of course!

Hey do you have any idea why Bergdorf online can sometimes have a piece heavily discounted but then have the exact same handbag in a slightly different color still at full price?? Is it seasonal colors or are customer returns usually discounted first? Thanks so much for your update/pics!

Really? I actually find the opposite and notice items in the store are less expensive than what's posted online.

Colors can be part of a seasonal collection or a classic lineup that doesn't go on sale...

Oh...i actually meant that the same brand item online is listed at full price and a different color is on sale ALSO online...(was comparing online sale section to online regular price section)

sorry if it was confusing
