Say Good-Bye to Winter

When the weather is nice there's nothing nicer than taking a stroll along Madison. We weren't the only ones feeling that way. For the first time in months we saw shoppers actually shopping (buying things) at boutiques all along the Avenue.

Most of the buzz was about Fashion week and poor economy but that's not going to stop people from wanting to look great. Here's a round-up of what's left of the Fall/Winter collection at your favorite stores and boutiques:

Bergdorfs: Some stuff left but really don't bother if you're looking for anything with style.

Bloomingdales: There are two racks of leftovers that are 50% off wth another 65% off. The only standout is a black Zac Pozen in size 6.

Chloe: Everything was reduced to 70% early in the season and has been gone since January. Smart move.
Contact: Gisella 212-717-8220

Dolce & Gabbana: Nothing Left.
Contact: Cono 212-249-4100

Dior: Everything's been shipped out. By the way, this store is so much better than 57th Street's rave ambience.
Contact: 212 249-2254

Gucci: Done.
Contact: Maura 212-717-2619

Kriza: The store is still heavily stocked with winter clothing and the discount is just 60% off. We're still waiting for that 70% off sample sale phone call.
Contact: Julius 212-879-1211

Prada: All done.
Contact: Christina 212-327-4200

Saks: This is where to go for great selection and price.
Contact: Marie Jose 212-940-2536

Ungaro: A few stunning dresses and gowns still available but the discount is still just 60% off, which is still too heavy for our change purse.
Contact: 212-249-4090

Vera Wang: If you need something chic and pretty take a run over ASAP. The winter collection is 70% off and there are still some great jewels. Plus it's fun to watch the stressed brides.
Contact: Maria 212-628-3400

YSL: Some leftovers but everything is still about $1500-ish at 60% off.

Weather was amazing and EVERYONE was out today.

Scoop sale is nothing special still but a friend found a few things at Intermix.

Anyone been in Scoop on third ave? Is it me or is everything tan and beige?

Barneys warehouse sale starts tomorrow too but you would have to use physical force to get me to go with 5 blocks of there.
