We thought the year was going to out with a fizzle but we just got word of a deal that brings great bang for the buck. TheOutnet shared a private clearance sale link that can be found here

Mr. Porter Markdowns Get Good

Discounts on men's merchandise usually happen a little bit later than women's designer markdowns. So be the day has come for Mr. Porter to give men the discounts they desire. The savings are up to 50% off and the best part is many items easily translate flawlessly into a women's closet. 






Over this way, we spotted Common Projects sneakers that start at a size 39 for $255 from $425, this Givenchy sweater is $540 from $900, a sweater from Stone Island is $234 from $335, and a cashmere sweater from The Row is $766 from $1100. This Loewe messenger bag is a showstopper for anyone at $930 from $1550, John Lobb shoes are $553 from $790 and this Thom Brown velvet blazer is $1074 from $1800. 

In a society where women fight for equality, it's nice to know we can double our fashion options just by searching through the men's department. It might even make you more fashionable.

Bergdorf Goodman: Extra 20% Off Sale

We thought it would be a quiet week but boy are we wrong. We just got word that Bergdorf Goodman added a promotion where many sale items are an additional 20% off. 




The most recent markdowns aren't included in the extra discount promotion but there are some good finds. We spotted these Gianvitto Rossi slingbacks that come to $277 from $700, this long coat from CO is $717 from $1500 and a Burberry shearling jacket is $1786 from $3800.

There is a very large amount of Brunello Cucinelli sale items but even at a discount, the prices are so high that's embarrassing to endorse. This cotton hoodie is $454 from $875 and is one of the more tame items. You're probably better off shopping through the Balenciaga selection. This logo all-over men's shirt can easily be worn unisex and is just $245 from $650 and this cashmere peacoat is $1435 from $3000. Don't miss the Manolo selection although the sizing is very spotty.

The sale will run through the end of 2020 but remember that's just a few days. We don't know if more merchandise will be added but you can be sure we'll be on the lookout.

Saks Fifth Avenue: Fendi, Loewe and Valentino Markdowns

What an eventful markdown season it's been. It's crazy to think that we area beyond Christmas and some items are only just coming up for their first price cut. Saks Fifth Avenue is the latest store to add several premium brands to its markdown list.



 

To start, there are some really great Loewe bags that just went on sale. This Loewe saddlebag is one of our favorite designs of the season and is now $1225 from $1750 and a mini Gate belt bag is $1085 from $1550. Next, check out the sale selection from Fendi. These sock sneakers are $382 from $850 and this Kan U is $1855 from $2650. 

Lots of Valentino items got a second markdown. Here are Rockstud jelly sandals for $222 from $700 and Rockstud sandals are $312 from $700. There is also a lot of great Balenciaga deals. This puffer is $1116 from $2800 and these mules are $267 from $600. 

These aren't all hard markdowns and some of the prices are a result of weekend flash sales. We would suggest pouncing on any fashion that's reduced by 60% or more.

The Best Places to Shop After Christmas

Black Friday is for the amateurs. Real shoppers sharpen elbows for the day after Christmas. It's usually the time of year where you can find a rather good selection of merchandise that's highly discounted.

Many retailers started their markdowns late, which means post-Christmas shopping will be better than usual. Over the course of the week, you'll be able to find great opportunities to pounce. Below are some of our favorite post-Christmas shopping destinations. Share your favorites in the comment section below:

Starting from, um, now, you can save an extra 30% off sale items. Use the code BYE2020 to engage the extra savings. This Off-White Jitney bag is $525 from $1130, this is a great houndstooth Teddy-style  coat for $476 from $860, and these Alexandre Birman shoes are great for kicking up your heels for New Years (in your living room) at $390 from $800.

These "Fake" Gucci sneakers come to $450 from $680 US, a Prada crossbody bag is $1274 from over $2000 and a Moncler jacket is about $900 from $2000 US.

Lots of designer merchandise was just added to the NAP sale section. These items won't see another markdown after the holiday but previously reduced items will get another cut. Some great new deals include these Chloe slides that are $207 from $415 and a Rossie Assoulin watercolor skirt is $450 from $900. 

Keep your credit card handy because Saks is taking another round of markdowns after Christmas. The discounts will span to 70% off. Additional brands like Chloe, Loewe, and Celine will be added to the markdown. The site will also host a series of flash sales. Stay on your toes and make sure you keep refreshing. Right now, this Balenciaga tote is $833 from $1200 and these Bottega Lido flats are $732 from $1220. 

It's almost the New Year, which makes it the perfect timing for the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale. Discounts will be up to 40% off and include nearly everything from the winter collections. The sale will officially begin on Christmas Eve. Currently, this Perrin crossbody bag is $600 from $1000 and a Balmain knit jacket is $980 from $2450.

Be on the lookout for Fendi markdowns.  Right now, a Balenciaga all-over sweater is $318 from $850 and these Valentino sandals are $560 from $900.

Right now, the discounts at Bergdrofs are up to 70% off including the additional 30% off sale items. Immediately following Christmas, there will be another markdown and promotion that's an extra 15% off sale. That will make the discounts marginally better at up to 75% off retail. We suggest you don't wait to save a bit and buy what you like now. Right now, this Bottega bag is $1575 from $2250 and Manolo animal print shoes are $290 from $700.

Ssense Adds Another Markdown

Here we go again. Ssense started another round of markdowns. Some items were reduced further and other merchandise was added to the private sale section. To access the private sale you need to have already purchased an item from Ssense and log into your account. 



There is a very large assortment of Saint Laurent items. We suggest you focus on perspective purchases that are hard to catch on sale or reduced close to 30% off. Otherwise, you might be better off purchasing elsewhere. This Carre satchel is $2088 from $2900 and this mini Lou is $886 from $1150.

There were also lots of Golden Goose added to the private sale. The discount isn't insane but there are sizes and a great assortment of styles. These Superstars are $352 from $530 and this pair with a gold star is $347.

Some of the more reduced items include these Fendi pumps that are $519 from $880 and this Fendi skirt is $449 from $1100.  There are still lots of Commes des Garcons items like this white shirt with a heart for $142 from $180 or a hoodie for $176 from $220.

We aren't in love with this private sale format, which is exclusionary to many customers. Maybe it's enough incentive to be a customer before the next sale.

Department Store Holiday Shipping Deadlines

Usually, the holiday season means walking alongside cars to avoid slow-walking tourists. This year stores are much more empty but online shopping still maintains a lot safer. This year, the aggravation of missorted packages and shipping delays seems to be even more angering than crowded streets. It's even more important than ever to plan ahead.

Prada Private Sale 40% to 50% off

Prada's seasonal sale kicked off at boutiques and department stores today. Unlike some other higher-end brands, Muccia is trying to keep the discounts a little discreet. Department stores launched private sale links and codes are necessary to see the discounts. You will need to specifically ask about sale items when shopping at the boutique.


Update: Moda Operandi is the most recent retailer to share a private link to discounted Prada. The disount is 50% off everything, You can click here to access the assortment and use the code SHH50 to engage the savings at checkout.

Some shoes at  Nordstrom are discounted 50% off. These loafers are $495 from $990 and sneakers are $345 from $690.

Discounts are the same at both stores but the selection at Saks is more extensive. That doesn't mean you should skip over Neimans, which has some shoes reduced to 50% off.

Saks: Get Up to $400 Off as Chic Happens

Sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue & ShopStyle

One of my favorite catchphrases is: "Chic Happens." Obviously, it's because the best outfits are unintentional. When it's good, it's just good-- and you immediately know it. 





Saks Fifth Avenue challenged me to put together a head to toe look that can fit into many budgets. I found exactly everything I needed and Chic Happened.

My head-to-toe look includes a combination of items that easily come together as an adorable ensemble or can be integrated with items you already own. I started with these girly Cinq a Sept tied flare leg jeans, which are very on-trend for this season. I added a minimalistic Cinq a Sept cashmere sweater ($345), which is perfect for balancing the pants. A simple pair of Loeffler Randall ankle boots ($395), a Staud bag ($210), and then you can top it off with a Moose Knuckles hat ($150). Frame jeans ($220) are an easy alternative to change up the outfit for a more casual occasion. 

As we are talking about shopping on a budget. Saks is offering a great "Get up to $400 OFF" promotion that starts today and runs through December 19. The breakdowns are below. I'm quite sure that with the extra savings you can make chic happen too. 

Spend $250, get $50 off 
Spend $450, get $100 off
Spend $750, get $175 off
Spend $1000, get $250 off
Spend $1500, get $400 off

Private Celine & Balenciaga Sale 30% Off

The French online retail store, 24S is hosting a private sale where a large assortment of Celine and Balenciaga is 30% off. You can click here to access the selection. The men's selection is here. The discount is applied at checkout with the code PS30.

Remember there are no duties, taxes, or shipping costs if your purchase is over $200. Some of our favorite finds are below:


It's Official: Net-A-Porter 2nd Markdown 70% Off

Net-A-Porter took its second markdown this morning. The sale includes further reductions with discounts up to 70% off.

Bags tend to go very quickly once the markdown tops 50%. This Valentino shoulder bag is now half-off, this Tom Ford tote is $1300 from $2200, and this Tom Ford top handle bag is $2130 from $5150. We would have loved to see some Fendi and Bottega markdowns too but there aren't any.

The bulk of the shoe section is reduced to 60% off. We suggest you start browsing immediately. Sizes are disappearing as we scroll through the pages. Take note, that an item isn't held in even if it's placed in your cart.

Among the clothing, there are a lot of pieces from The Row reduced up to 70% off. Since there hasn't been a sample sale this season, this could be a good alternitive.

We suspect that the markdowns will get even better as the month progresses. A lot of the most reduced merchanise is from last season and there is still plenty that hasn't gone on sale. Just try not to get too greedy. It's not worth waiting save 10% and missing the opportunity to buy something you've wanted.

YSL Sale IS Live Online

Hi this is a message for Lila. This is Mike from Saint Laurent. I'm calling you because we are going on sale. So give me a call when you get a chance. The number here is 212-400-xxxx.




I call back to get the scoop but Mike was with a customer. So I asked the sales associate who answered the phone, "Can you tell me the current markdown."

The associate replies, "There's no markdown. Everything is still full price."

I respond, "Then why did Mike just leave me a voice mail about a sale."

She answers, "Oh the private sale. I'll have to put you through to Mike's mailbox."

I leave Mike a message and he calls me back a bit later and says, "Oh Lila, would you believe the sale has started? Most bags are 30% off, many shoes are 50% off and clothing is up to 60% off."

And that's the way it all goes down in the boiler room of luxury fashion. Oh and just an FYI, markdowns at ysl.com are already live.

Tune in tomorrow for a transcript of a conversation with boutiques.
