Madison Avenue Round-up Part 1

November 23, 2010 by Hayley Corwick

For the past few weeks we have been uncovering the best discounts along Madison Avenue. As Thanksgiving approaches, the discounts are about to get more attractive. Below is a list of current and upcoming promotions that haven’t been mentioned. Click here to see a list of all of our Madison Avenue stories, which include Gucci, Valentino, Dior, Missoni, Prada and Sigerson Morrison.

The sale doesn’t officially start until Friday but you can preshop the discounts now. Shoes, clothing and a limited variety of bags will all be discounted 40% off.
Gisella 212-717-8220

Lisa Perry:
For Black Friday all black dresses will be discounted 30% off. We don’t know if that means solid dresses–does the store even sell solid dresses–or if any dress with black detailing is included in the markdown. If you find yourself in a color dilemma, wait until December 1 and receive 20% off as part of a Shopafrolic event with Liz Lange and Jane Wagman. We can’t get enough of the little girl dresses or the hoop bags.

Michael Kors:
The prefall collection is already reduced 50% and winter merchandise will be marked down the same amount following Thanksgiving.

Presale has not yet started but we hear that the markdown is coming soon. The first discount should be 30% but a 50% price reduction usually comes shortly later.

Norma Kamali:
The Norma Kamali Black Friday sale will begin Wednesday. We hear that there will be seriously good deals. Select merchandise will all be priced $200 and under– with most in the under $100 range. Sleeping bag coats in pink, cinder and cloud will be $125 to $175 from $650. (Perfect for keeping warm during the parade.) Silk satin gowns that were originally $2700, will be marked down to $200. The promotion takes a break for turkey day but will resume Friday.

Presales will begin next week and the discount should be 30% to 40% off, depending on the item. The 57th Street location is plush with merchandise. We also hear that other locations will be transferring their merchandise to NYC too. We have a feeling there will be super discounts come January/Feb.
