Saks and Barneys 1st Markdown

The department stores are going to their first markdown. At Saks, shoes, handbags, clothing and other accessories will range from 30% to 40% off. The sale officially starts Monday but presale is underway. The call we received from a first floor specialist detailed the handbag department-- Bottega Veneta bags are 40% but Jimmy Choo and Gucci are just 30% off.

Meanwhile uptown, Barneys is marking their designers down 40%. The sale is also online but beware, there are many shoe styles that didn't sell when there were 70% off this winter.

The good department store markdowns may be slow but they are coming. Until then we'll keep a watchful eye

Any idea if Prada bags are included in this sale? Of course only department stores bought the bag I want!

Went to Saks 5th Avenue today. For shoes, all designers have certain styles on sale. The only exclusion is Chanel. Most things were 30% off. A lot of Louboutin, Choo, Fendi & Zanotti marked down 30%. Im holding out for 50%+.
