Long summer weekends, to most New Yorkers, mean abandoning the gilded path of Madison Avenue in favor of sandy beaches and suburban landscapes. That means, shopping at malls, outlets and online stores. Below is your personal shopping guide for the unofficial start of sale season, opps, summer.
The Barneys sale will break online on Sunday. The discount on shoes and clothing will be 40% off, while bags will be reduced 30%.
In addition to the standard Memorial Day markdowns, Bloomingdales is offering an extra 20% off sale and clearance items. Use the code TAKE20 at checkout. Ferragamo Vara pumps in pink are $270, an McQ Satchel is $409 from $585 and a Marc by Marc Jacobs cosmo dress with sateen stars is 335 from almost $600.
Starting Sunday, J. Crew will offer 30% off site wide using the code WEEKEND. The two-day discount is also available in stores. Some restrictions apply but there aren't many.
Now though Tuesday, May 27 you can save a total of 55% off. You can use the code RLMEM14 at checkout to receive take advantage of the holiday 30% off promotion. (The mini Ricky is not included in the sale merchandise but we will keep stalking this tiny but lovable bag.)
Saks Fifth Avenue
Premium designer shoes will be discounted 30% and high-end fashion will be marked down 40%. Contemporary designers, will have an additional discount that will bring the sale to 55% off.
The online store has added hundreds of items to their sale section. I always start my shopping in the 60% off level because it's still returnable. These 10 Crosby Derek Lam and sandals are $140 from $350, a bleached-denim Theyskens' Theory mini dress is $198 from $305 and this sheer PilyQ Raja beach coverup is $77 from $154.
