If you're looking to shop the steepest discounts of the season we suggest you scope out a Nordstrom store. The department store's half-yearly sale includes lots of designer merchandise that is reduced up to 70%-- more than any local luxury retailers.
Unfortunately, there won't be a Nordstrom store in Manhattan until 2018 but that doesn't mean you can't score some amazing merchandise for top discount prices. If you're interested in scoping out the Nordstrom with the finest brands you're going to want to begin with the Nordies locations that carry Chanel. Those are Topanga, CA, Downtown Portland, Downtown Seattle and Mall of America.
We sent some spies into the Topanga store and were alerted about the great Celine selection. A classic dress with a wide belt is $630 from $2100 a collegiate sweater is $600 from $1300 and an awesome sleeveless leather dress with an exposed zipper is $630. In addition, you can grab a Versace glitter cocktail dress for $595 and a Alexander McQueen dress for $794.
Among the Chanel items, in Topenga, there is a print sweater for $900, a classic drop waste dress for $1219 and a hot pink tweed top for $1164. The best piece is a navy and teal tweed jacket with amethyst buttons for $2150 from $5700!
Over at the Portland store, the Chanel section includes a gold toned jacket for $4700 from almost $12000, a three color cardigan is $1064 from $2665, and a classic outerwear jacket is $1874 from $4690. (You can click here to see pictures of all the items mentioned above.)
Those who are light on time and patience can always shop the designer section of Nordstrom.com. While browsing we found a Lanvin dress for $600 from $2000, a Thakoon print dress for $288 from $960 and
Versus leather sleeve jacket for $590 from almost $2000.
