It's amazing that most local stores have already started their second markdowns when Chanel merchandise hasn't even been discounted once. The Chanel sale doesn't officially start until Tuesday, June 23. Presale will be permitted in Chanel boutiques on Friday but many local department stores have already started to facilitate sale shopping.
The discount on shoes and clothing is 40%. The bag situation is a lot more temperamental. The discount is 30% but most bags that are eligible for markdown don't even make it to presale time. You can check back here for pictures as we receive more intel. For now, we have a pretty comprehensive list of the shoes that are eligible for markdown. Click here to see them all.
Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales are generally the easiest places to presale Chanel shoes. Bergdorf Goodman often has the largest selection of sale handbags but breaking into 'the society of Chanel sale' is more difficult. Barneys, well, is always Barneys.
Good luck and feel free to send pictures and add information in the comment section.
