The Gucci pre-sale is now underway in boutiques. Bags, clothing and shoes are discounted 40% off. The pre-sale link will go live online on Friday.
Last season, Gucci did a style purge and discounted almost the entire collection 50% off. This time around we aren't so lucky. Some key items included in the markdown are the Disco bag in orange, the Jackie Bucket bag in a variety of colors and the Interlocking Leather Shoulder bag in assorted colors including black. Take note, that a lot of the sale items have already been removed from the website in preparation for the sale.
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.
Those shopping in Europe can enjoy discounts in about two weeks. One point that you should remember is that all Gucci sale items are final and cannot be returned.
