Madison Avenue Spy Round-Up

July 25, 2008 by Lila Delilah

Sale season is coming to a swift end and I thought it might be best if we take inventory of what’s going on around town. I called and shopped asking the question, “Do you still have any Spring/Summer merchandise?” Then followed up with the pièce de résistance, “What is the current markdown.” Here are the responses in alphabetical order. There’s more to come on Monday.

Chloe: “We have a few select sizes.” If you’re lucky to be a select size it’s 50% off. (The same as back in June.)

Gisella 212-717-8220

Dolce & Gabbana: “We have some dresses, slacks and blazers but come in soon because it’s all going out after the weekend.” The current markdown is 60% off.

Cono 212-249-4100

Ferragamo: “It’s all here until we do inventory in mid-August.” Most items are 35% off.
Nick 212-759-3822

Gucci: “It’s all gone.”
