Which YSL Boutique is 40% Off?

We won't be able to tell you if the YSL sample sale is worth your time until VIP shoppers begin attending the sample sale on Monday. In the meantime, we tracked down the best Saint Laurent boutique on earth. Would you believe that some of the most desirable items are up to 40% off at all times?



We recently became aware that pricing at the Saint Laurent store in Honolulu is up to 40% less than in the Continental United States. And these prices, my friends, are without a markdown.

For instance, a large Sac du Jour in New York is priced at $2950 but is just $1900 in Honolulu. The smaller size is $2500 in NY and $1660 in Honolulu. The YSL logo clutch is $650 in the Continental US and $550 on the Big Island and the small Cabas Chyc is $2350 here and $1450 in the Aloha State. Shoes in Honolulu are generally 10% less expensive and clothing ranges in price.

We questioned a sales person in the Land of Paradise and was told that their pricing is done in such a way to "attract international buyers." In the case, "you don't have the time to get away," the Hawaii store will ship anywhere in the US and extend their pricing. Shipping is $10 and local sales tax applies. However, with these prices you can practically afford a trip to Hawaii and have money left over to shop.

Do you know if other boutiques are similarly discounted in Hawaii?

Hawaii is the only one

I just called the Honolulu store right now.
Large SDJ is $2080,
Duffle 12 is $1850,
so it's about 30% off.
Shipping is $25

You can;t turn your nose up at 30% savings on those items. Above i said, "Prices are up to 40% off"

I think Emily meant other brands in Hawaii.. at least that's what I wanted to ask. Thanks this is so good to know!

Alex said...

And a friend just received an email confirmation from the YSL Honolulu boutique that they can't honor Hawaii special pricing for purchase made via phone/email... you have to be physically in store.

Sorry. That wasn't the case earlier this week.

I received the same email yesterday after they were transferring my Sac de Jour from another store for shipping they said they just received word this morning they were not to ship any orders by phone or email. I am soooo disappointed! :(

That's the best and worst part of the site. I would suggest trying again in a few weeks.

Emily said...

Lila, I was actually asking about other brands with stores in Hawaii, like Ferragamo. Do you know of any other brands that also have discounts in their Hawaii stores?

Lila Delilah said...

I'm sorry. I really don't know of any others.
