For the past month we have been on undercover shopping missions and reporting on the most secret and classified sales along Madison. As of now, all the private sales and pre-sales are done. Madison Avenue is officially on sale. For your convenience, we are summarizing all the markdown information we’ve uncovered and adding a few more pieces of intelligence.
Almost every boutique took their first markdown at 40%. We are wondering if this is an innocent trend or if there is some type of sordid CFDA price-fixing afoot. What do you think?
Ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories are 40% off. The sale went public June 2.
Ready-to-wear, shoes and some bag styles are 40% off. Of course, everything we wanted is either sold out or not marked down. We’ll give it more time.
The summer collection is 40% off. There is a great range of styes and there is still a good variety of sizes left.
Dolce & Gabbana
Ready-to-wear, shoes and most bags are 40% off. There are three full floors of merchandise from which to choose.
Most summer styles are 30% off. Giuseppe now has a US e-boutique with sale merchandise but selection is much smaller than the store.
Shoes, handbags and ready-to-wear are all 40% off. The sale went public online and in boutiques on June 1.

There hasn’t been a markdown on the current season’s merchandise but downstairs in the “Vault”, fall and winter clothing and accessories are 50% off. Don’t miss Lisa Perry’s personal garage sale where she is selling amazing vintage Pucci, Courrèges and Pierre Cardin for about $1000 a piece.

Shoes, bags and clothing are 50% off. We love the soft palate of lavender, gray and blue Michael used this season. The discount often goes to 70%.
The spring and summer collection ranges from 40% to 50% off. The sale started mid-May and the merchandise is starting to run thin.
Ready-to-wear, shoes and select bags are 40% off. There are lots of great cloths to choose from but the shoe selection seems uninspiring. The sale officially began June 3rd.
Ready-to-wear (including dresses and gowns), accessories, shoes and handbags are 40% off. Do you think Oscar hopefuls ever shop Oscar’s sale for their gowns?
Bags, shoes and clothing is 40% off. The sale started about two weeks ago and the inventory is already running low.
Select shoes and bags are 30% off. Clothing is 40% off. Unfortunately, the most popular shoe styles, like Tributes, are not on sale.
