Round-Up: Sale-ing on Madison (Round I)

Temperatures are rising and so are tthe disocunts on Madison Avenue. We've collected markdown intelligence from some key Madison Avenue boutiques. Most stores have already taken first markdowns and discounts span from 30% to 50% off retail.

Before making an impulse purchase, we suggest you do a quick review of what sales are online. Sometimes you can find even steeper discounts if you look beyond a brand's boutiques. Other times the brands offer the most attractive deals.

Below is a sample of what we found at our local stores. Be sure to look at the pictures in the jump to get a sense of what's on sale at each Madison Avenue boutique.




Alexander McQueen
Most everything from the spring and summer collection is 40% off. We can't say anything much caught our eye. The clothing collection is much better than the accessories or handbags. We especially like the floral narrative but it doesn't feel very McQueen. This is one brand that is in need of a revamp --and fast. Some pictures of what we found on sale at the McQueen boutique are over this way.

Anya Hindmarch
Discounts for the British designer's playful bags, accessories and shoes range from 30% to 50% off. Most of the merchandise is just 30% off but cute beach slides are discounted 50% and come to $450 from $500. A crossbody Smiley Face bag is 30% off and many of the items from the 'Chubby" collection are also discounted 30%. The markdown isn't live online but we are told it will be shortly. Take note, some Anya items on Net-A-Porter are more highly discounted. See pictures of the Anya Hindmarch sale here.

Balenciaga
Is there any brand hotter than Balenciaga right now? Arguably not. The discounted shoe selection isn't as extensive as what you might find elsewhere but the savings is higher at 50% off. Market bags and select City bags are discounted 40% and most clothing is reduced 40% too. One of the best deals is the Blanket Reporter XS bag that's discounted 50% to $845 from nearly $1700. Pictures of what's included in the Balenciaga sale are over here. Take note, Triple S sneakers are back in stock but not on sale (obviously).

Dolce & Gabbana
Expect to find a fresh bloom of discounts and floral prints at Dolce & Gabbana. The markdown is 40% off most seasonal merchandise. Be sure to check out the beachwear downstairs. We have an assortment of colorful pictures of the Dolce & Gabbana sale merchandise over this way.

Emilio Pucci
The discount at Pucci is 40% off for the cruise and the summer collections. There are hardly any shoes or bags included in the sale but the kids' collection can be found for 40% off too. We suggest you browse the large assortment of sale scarves. Most silk scarves are reduced to $262 from $420. You can click on the jump link to see what Pucci clothing and scarves are on sale.
Terina: 212-230-1145

Givenchy
Anyone in the market for a couture wedding gown? Well, you won't find it at the Madison Avenue Givenchy boutique but you will find a small selection of sale merchandise discounted 40% off. There are no Horizon bags included in the discount, despite the fact that they can be found on sale at numerous retailers like Barneys. The sale selection for clothing is also a lot bigger over at Net-A-Porter. Pictures of what you will find at the Givenchy store are in the jump.

Prada
Prada boutiques only do one markdown each season. Shoes and clothing are 50% off and handbags are reduced by 40%. There aren't many sale surprises in the boutique. It seems as if all the same items are discounted everywhere. You can see the entire sale selection of shoes and bags at Prada here. The second markdown at Barneys tops 60%, which will be a better deal if you can hold out and if you what you desire stays in stock.

Roger Vivier
It's hard to resist a new pair of Roger Vivier shoes, especially when they are 40% off. The entire front room, of the second floor, is stocked with lots of beautiful discounted options. Sadly, we missed some of the jewel styles that you can find at some department stores. Unfortunately, Viviers discounted at many places online. We linked to a few but this is one brand where they prefer you physically get your prize. We have pictures of the sale Roger Vivier shoes and bags that we found at the store.
Edouard 212-861-5371

Valentino
Expect to fund Rockstuds galore at the Valentino boutique. The discount is 40% off, which is higher than most other retailers. That means that many of the most desirable styles are going very quickly. You can shop the sale selection online here or you can take peek at the Valentino Madison Avenue sale via our pictures.
