While most Americans are panning their Thanksgiving meals, we are stalking our favorite Madison Avenue boutiques for the first opportunities to shop markdowns. We uncovered some early hits of sale season.
Presale will begin on Friday. The discounts will range from 40% to 50% off but the final determination on discounts has not been made. The sale selection will include seasonal items from the pre-fall and fall collections. That means you can snag savings on lots of jewel tones -- purple, teal and red were the predominate themes of the latest collections. This season the shoe collection was more of a snooze. The one exception is the tassel loafers with the chain. Right now, Bluefly has the style reduced about 20% off.
The Miu Miu presale will also begin Friday. The best part is that the elaborate moto boots like this studded style and these with crystals are likely to be included in the markdown. Again, they haven't released the discount amounts for each item but we are told that markdowns will range from 30% to 40% off.
If you're looking to snag a nice savings on YSL we suggest you head there fast as the boutique's sales people are currently calling dibs on the best items. Included in the markdown is this gorgeous patent and leather Sac De Jour that comes to about $1900 from $2750. Also 30% off are assorted colored Lulu Bags and we think we even spotted a black Trois Clous. In the shoe section, select Tributes will be discounted 20% and other shoes will be 30% to 40% off.
