Bergdorfs: Ignore the Signs

December 10, 2008 by Lila Delilah

I received many mixed responses to the Bergodorf sale, posted earlier this week. I decided I needed to check it out myself even if it did mean burning an bigger hole in my pocket.

I am so glad I did. Shoes are bags are marked down a straight 40%. That’s not really a big discount considering our economic climate. However, if you head to the designer clothing floors you will be happily surprised.

Everywhere you look signs read: Up to 50% off. You need to disregard the signs and read the tags. On the second floor (Dolce, Dior, Gucci, Fendi etc.) I was able to find a variety of clothing marked down more than 70%. For example, a Dolce and Gabbana sweater was originally marked $999 and is now $250. A Gucci blouse was marked $850 to start and is now about $200. My favorite, is a Balenciaga skirt that was $1,275 to start and is now $379. The coordinating shoes can be found in the shoe department but they still need another discount to make the straight-out-of-a-catalogue look worth while.

So remember, when you head to Bergdorfs this week: Look at the tags and ignore the signs.

And the deal gets even sweeter:
