Madison Avenue Sale Update

May 13, 2009 by Lila Delilah

We are slowly working our way down the Avenue. Many stores still have not started a markdown but every store is willing to help you pre-shop sale time.

We are also finding that several of our favorite sales associates have been let go or are no longer at their respective stores. Creating relationships — especially trusting fashion relationships–is never easy. So when your contact leaves your store experience is bound to change. Below are some examples of changing relationships as well as sale information:

Bottega Veneta:
There’s no sale date and no item list, however if you would like to come in and shop the collection they will keep a watchful eye on your selections. We expect ready-to-wear to go straight to 50% off and bags and accessories to markdown 40%.
Tatiana 212-371-5511

Christian Louboutin:
Nothing has been confirmed. We expect this boutique to hold out for a while, after all they have a luxury image to protect.
Erich 212-396-1884

Dolce & Gabbana:
The store is holding a private sale for their premier shoppers. The discount is 40% and if you have a problem drop Lila’s name.
Cono 212-249-4100

Maura is no longer there and getting sale information is difficult. After a long conversation we were invited to walk through the store and point out our favorite items so that we can “prepare for the situation.” We’re not sure what situation we are preparing for exactly but we will be happy for a 50% discount.
Nora 212-717-2619

Jimmy Choo:
Zita is no longer at the Choo box and Jenny told us that they will not be going on sale for “a few months.” Don’t you know that there’s big demand for sandals way into September!? We’ll have to check back again.
