Gucci Four-Day Private Sale

Retail sales have had a difficult year, except for a very select group of fashion brands that are white hot. Gucci happens to be one of these exceptions, as Alessandro Michele has turned the nearly extinct Italian brand into a fashion stallion.

For the past couple of years, Gucci had just one markdown at various times surrounding Memorial Day. Last year, was practically a fire sale as the company divested itself of merchandise from previous resident designers. This sale season is going to be much, much different.

Inside sources tell us that Gucci boutiques, and the spaces Gucci leases within department stores, will host a four day sale. The private sale will begin on Wednesday, May 18. Clothing from this past season's collection will be reduced 30%, while seasonal style shoes and handbags will be reduced 40%.

Manhattan-bound Gucci shoppers can shop the discounts at the brand's three boutiques-- Trump Towers, Madison Avenue and Brookfield Place. Department store leased spaces include the Gucci ready-to-wear and handbag department at Saks Fifth Avenue (not shoes) and the Gucci handbag department at Bloomingdales.

We are told that these four days will be the only discount opportunity offered by Gucci. After Saturday, the merchandise will be returned to full price and shipped out of stores when the season ends. The sale schedule on non-leased Gucci merchandise-- Bergdorf Goodman, Saks shoe salon and Barneys-- are up to the individual stores.

We suggest that Gucci fans quickly contact with a reliable sales person to assist in securing your desired items. There will also be an online sale but we aren't sure of the dates. Stay tuned for updates.

Could you please post an online link? Some of the items have been cleared frim the website, as they are probably part of their private presale and no longer available for a full price purchase.

Hi Lila,

Your site is my #1 source for pre-sales. I've purchased so many designer items on sale thanks to your "heads up." Just wondering, you wrote that Gucci outlets are having a private sale in addition to the full price stores having the sales (I already purchased lots already from the full price stores yesterday!!). Do you know how the outlet sale works?

thanks much,

This was so exciting, I went into a gucci store in Hawaii today but they weren't so happy that I was asking about the sale.. One of them said that they won't be starting until the 25th and that there's not much going on sale. If any one has a good sales associate who can help me search for some nice hangbags it would be great!!

I'm sorry but i don't know a sales person in Hawaii but Cole is the sales manager at the New York flagship on 5th Avenue.

I called Gucci in Short Hills NJ today and the guy was super sweet. Yes it started today, and like prior years he said that they will keep the stock until it is gone usually for a few weeks.

Does anyone know what items are on sale? An associate at my local store sent me an email about the sale earlier this week, but he is not back until Sat. My local store is is running the sale "by appointment only", so I'm trying to see if there is anything I want them to hold!!
