Gucci Hosts Their Biggest Sale Ever

Gucci is rebranding. Frida Giannini is out. Alessandro Michele is in and he wants nothing to do with the old Gucci. To begin fresh, Gucci is hosting what may turn out to be the biggest sale ever. Right now, shoppers can save 50% on most Gucci items.



Right now, the sale is considered "private" but the sale opens to the "public" on May 18. Unlike most presales, Gucci is allowing customers to take their merchandise at the time of purchase and not wait until the sale officially begins. (They want this stuff, out!)

The sale isn't just occurring at Gucci stores but also includes Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales and Nordstrom. Take note, as with many private sales, stores and sales people tend to be cagey. It is part of the culture that we really dislike.

We are told that the sale will begin online next Friday. You can click here to see an assortment of some of the items included in the liquidation sale. Those shopping in Europe should be able to begin presale in the next two weeks.

In order to purchase presale, I have to know an SA?

How does the sale happen in store? Do I just ask them about the sale?

are these pictures from the dept stores or gucci website?

Lila Delilah said...

No. Just find a sales person who is willing to be cooperative.

Lila Delilah said...

Yes

How can I get the link to the private presale from Gucci?

Lila Delilah said...

The link isn't live yet. I'll post it as soon as it's available 😉

Wow, thanks for these pictures! So we take 50% off these prices? Or are these already in sale pricing? Do you know if Gucci stores will do charge sends to an address out of NY to eliminate taxes? A sales person from Saks used to do it for me a while back. Many thanks again!

I called my Nordies (dwtn Portland) and they are waiting for the price break dates and will start pre-sale when they get the dates. I'll comment when I find out more!

According to my SA at Saks, some of the bags pictured in black are not part of the sale. The Diamante tote, for example, is only available in white and yellow at the sale price, though it's pictured here in black. Not sure if the story would be different at Gucci or online.

Thank you!

I can't say for sure. These are just the items that were sent to me by various sales people.

do you know if the gucci diaper bags will be included in the 50% in boutique and website?

K said...

I went to another Gucci store and as Lila said, it was a little like pulling teeth, but I did get another bag at 50% off!!! I gotta stop now :-) It was a black bucket bag, but not many bags in black will be marked down.

Obat Kutil Kelamin said...

Kondiloma akuminata atau yang sering disebut sebagai kutil kelamin, merupakan salah satu penyakit seksual menular (PMS) yang disebabkan oleh virus yang bernama Humanpapilloma virus (HPV). Terdapat lebih dari 40 jenis HPV yang dapat menginfeksi daerah kelamin laki-laki dan perempuan. Jenis HPV ini juga dapat menginfeksi mulut dan tenggorokan. Kebanyakan orang yang terinfeksi dengan HPV bahkan tidak tahu mereka memilikinya. HPV tidak sama dengan herpes atau HIV (AIDS).

Visited a store and flat out they told me sale is starting Monday. I was disappointed.

The sale only in certain states or all over?

The sale is live online now

Where is the sale live online? I don't see any sale bags on the Gucci website but maybe I am looking in the wrong place.

I went to Gucci, Bloomies, Saks and Macy's today and the sale was in full effect. There were bags from the bamboo collection, but I can only comment on the Soho collection since that's what I came for.
Patent Leather Bags- only black chain strap should bags and disco
Leather Bags- only black leather disco bags in different styles and leather shoulder bags in metallic, black
Nubuck- most of what was on sales was nubuck. Teal, orange disco and shoulder bags; grey and taupe shoulder bags in different styles

I really wanted a leather bag in a dung color so I left empty handed.

Better to leave empty handed than spend money on an item you don't really love

Has anyone been to stores in NYC and had success? To either Gucci or any of the dept stores?

I went to the Fifth Avenue flagship yesterday and a friendly SA pointed out all of the men's RTW and footwear on sale for me. None of it is visibly marked down yet but it's all 50% off and there were plenty of sizes left.

The women's handbag area looked like it had been hit by a hurricane and lots of women were throwing them around and fighting.
