Classified Leak: Black Friday Sale Dates

For the past week, we have have been fielding 100s of emails and DMs asking about sales breaking at specific stores. For the first time, we are pre-publishing all of our known sale dates. It's hard to say how long we will be able to keep this post live. We suggest that you bookmark this page and then click on the direct sale links below. Some of our sources provided us with private pre-sale access.

Add everything you're considering to your card and then begin to edit. When the sales go live you can cash out fast without searching through a sluggish site.

Saks Presale Begins (I Spy Gucci!)

Jingle bells aren't ringing but we are merry and cheery as Saks Fifth Avenue begins presale for its first markdown of the season. Saks Fifth Avenue started presale today and the seasonal markdown ritual will be officially public starting Tuesday morning.

The biggest highlight of the Saks sale is the Gucci merchandise. No other store seems has publicly offered any discount on Gucci merchandise-- yet. The markdown assortment isn't wonderful but 40% off is all we need to begin celebrating the sale season.

Among the Gucci merchandise that's discounted 30% to 40% off are Gucci fur slides in blue velvet, embroidered sneakers, black and gold 'Guccy' pool slides, Gucci print all-over pumps, Vegas loafers, and various other styles. The sale also includes some styles of Gucci bags, including floral prints, butterfly styles and some styles of pouches. You can see pictures of more styles over here.

Beyond Gucci, there is a healthy selection of Balenciaga shoes. These Balenciaga slides are $206 from $500 and these sneakers come to $486 from almost $700. There are also lots of Valentino and Givenchy bags on markdown. This medium Rockstud bag is 40% off or $804 from $1345 and this velvet Rockstud Spike top handle bag is about $1900 from $2745. Just about every size, color, and shape of the Givenchy Antigona are on sale along with a variety of Saint Laurent bags, including Matelasse style bag. Pictures are in the jump.

Again... Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Celine, and other designers aren't part of the markdown yet. Usually, those brands are added in early December and within days of the second markdown. Just don't expect to find those Opium pumps hanging around waiting for you.

Gift Guide: Singles Day

Singles Day is the Chinese version of an anti-Valentines day. Really, what's there not to love? Celebrating social freedom and shopping!


The shopping-focused day first started in 1993, by a group of Chinese college students, to celebrate the state of being single. The date November 11 (or 11/11) was chosen because of the ones-- obviously. Elevens, according to numerology, is a “master number” which signifies intuition, insight, and enlightenment. As a matter of fact, there is a great app called Breathe 11:11 that alerts you twice a day to take a deep breath to allow free-flow of energy.

We've started to think of Singles Day as 'Treat Yourself Day.' After all, we've never turned down an occasion to shop and buy something nice. So in light of this day of spiritual consumership, we've picked out a few key gifts that we wouldn't mind indulging.

Loewe mini Gate ($1200)
Prada City Camera bag ($1620)
Fendi Western Boots ($1190)
Prada Mary Janes ($750)
Dyson hair dryer ($399)
Christofle Egg ($1680)
Pat McGrath lipstick ($38)
Aviartor Nation sweathirt ($173)
Off White 'Little Black Dress' ($800)
Maison Margiela pleated skirt ($1265)
