A Woodbury Common Holiday

The holiday weekend is upon us, which usually means major outlet reductions. We started snooping around Woodbury Common and found that many of our favorite outlet stores are adding extra discounts to lure customers. Don't worry if your plans don't include driving an hour north to go shopping. Most stores are willing to ship merchandise.

Bottega Veneta
We are told that there is a very good selection of shoes and ready-to-wear, which is are additional 50% off for the long weekend. Select older style bags are an extra 30% off, exotic skinned bags are another 40% off and small accessories are an additional 50% off. Unfortunately. there are no woven styles included in the extra markdowns.

Get this: The outlet store permanently closed on January 22nd. Don't feel like you're missing anything, the selection was always awful.

The entire store is an additional 20% off for the weekend (except for classic style bags, of course.) The clothing collection is a bit sparse but the savings are huge. The total markdown, including the extra 20%, comes out to almost 90%!

Select handbags, belts, hats and shoes are an additional 30% off. There is no extra markdown on ready-to-wear but the discount is currently about 75% off retail.

It sounds as if Etro may be hosting the best sale of all the Woodbury boutiques. All winter merchandise is an additional 70% off. This includes clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories. The sale selection for men is very small but your gal can walk away with the most sensational coat for about 90% off.

Giuseppe Zanotti
The outlet store just received 200 pair of sample shoes, which are all marked $99 and $149. The more expensive styles are heavily jeweled styles. There's one hitch, they are almost all size 7s. If you're not a perfect sample size shoe you can still benefit from the discount on the majority of shoes, which is now 75% off retail.

Prada has become a lot more conservative with their markdowns. Clothing and shoes are just an additional 30% off. That's on top of the basic 40% outlet discount. Small accessories, handbags and Prada sport merchandise are not included in the additional markdown.

All bags, except Muses, are an extra 20% off. Ready-to-wear from the most recent collection is an additional 40% off. Shoes will be discounted an extra 20%. Don 't get too excited, there are no high Tribute sandals.

I was there the majority of today - in the sun!
Bought Tod's black leather bag - 50% off; Frette sheets/towels and duvet set - 80%; La Perla stuff (bras $45/stockings $15); Thomas Pink French cuff shirts/silk shirts/blazers/dresses - entire store 30% off...YSL had some great bags, Bally's shoe selection was great, Tory Burch has some good deals on shoes too.

I was there this morning. I thought Prada had a beautiful variety of classic, ready to wear pieces available at a great discount. I bought a skirt suit for work for less than $500!!!! I also bought a brown pencil skirt for less than $150.

Otherwise of note: Armani store had huge selection, though not as heavily discounted as I would have hoped... I ended up getting this summery Emporio dress at 50% that I remembered seeing on 5th LAST spring and regretted not buying... Chloe had some EXCELLENT prices but only large sizes or more eccentric pieces are left...

I was horribly disappointed by DVF and Catherine Malandrino.
