Most presales have already ended and discounts are now widely available up and down the avenue. Last week we looked for presale bargains at some of our favorite Madison Avenue boutiques and this week we are bringing you more, more, more. Tis’ the season!!!
Bally usually takes a more conservative approach to markdown season with a 20% to 25% cut. This year, Bally fans will be happy to learn that the sale ranges from 30% to 40%. Sale merchandise includes, select shoes, handbags, accessories and clothing.
Most people aren’t thinking of sweaters during the first week of June but then most cashmere isn’t Cucinelli. The boutique started their sale on June 1st with a 40% discount. Since their sample sale is offering a 60% cut and runs through Friday, June 8th we would suggest scoping that merchandise first.
Sample Sale: 150 E. 58th St. (bet. Lexington & 3rd Ave.), 3rd Floor. 9am – 5pm
Maria (in store): 212-813-0900
