Neiman Marcus started a clearance sale where select reduced items are an additional 40% off. The extra markdown brings the total savings to 75% off original prices. This promotion is only online and ends on Sunday, June 28.
A pretty pink J. Mendel dress with lace detail comes to $735 from $3500, a suede Versace dress is under $400 from $1870 and an effortless aqua Halston Heritage dress is $82 from almost $400. There is a small shoe and handbag selection included in the clearance but it feels more like an expensive DSW than a great sale hunt. Spoiler alert: Lots of Sergio Rossi shoes and Jason Wu handbags.
Outside of the clearance section, normal summer sale merchandise is an extra 25% off. In the handbag area the added promotion brings the discount to 55% off. There are lots of the same bags we've been seeing throughout the sale season from Tom Ford, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen. Actually, this McQueen envelope bag/pouch is adorable for under $200.
Shoes still aren't reduced enough for our liking. For now, we are going to keep our eyes on these Chloe gladiator wedges and these Jimmy Choo studded pumps.
Clothing is the same 60% off as most any other department stores. We are still waiting for these Dolce & Gabbana floral prints to dip under $1000 but this Alice & Olivia graphic maxi shirt dress is just about perfect at $313 from $700. (It's the same print worn by First Lady, Michelle Obama.)
