Gucci Gets Ready to Sale

I got a phone call late last week about Gucci hosting a "Holiday Shopping Night," on Thursday, Nov. 20th, were everything in the store will be reduced 10%! When I heard this I knew something was up. So I gave my good friend, Maura a call. Turns out that the big discount is coinciding with the Spring trunk show.

Yeah, Maura knows that that the meager 10% discount isn't going to drive shoppers like us. So she pointed out that we can take this opportunity to prepare for the official first markdown, which is slated for December. First markdown is usually 40% but I have a feeling that this year's sales will be earlier and more aggressive than we've seen in decades. Maura is off Tuesday but is ready to take your "pre-sale" list.

This is early this year, last I remember it was the week of thanksgiving so they could bank on having lots of tourists in the store. A good time to pick up something from the classic collection or luggage that does not go on sale. Go to the store on madison first, not nearly as busy as 5th ave and much easier to shop.

Update regarding the sale: I got a postcard from Gucci on Friday, stating the sale begins on Monday, December 1st.
