The discount at Saks Fifth Avenue goes to 70% off starting Wednesday. The online sale started today but, as usual, the in-store assortment is much better. Beware, since Hudson Bay Company purchased Saks, they have created new rules. All third markdowns are final sale. We are told that these rules are strict and there are absolutely no backsies.
As you head out for the holiday weekend, it’s hard not to wonder what you might be missing inside the store. To quench your curiosity we scoured every cranny of the Saks flagship to bring you a virtual shopping experience. After the jump we have more than 50 pictures of sale merchandise. Links are added to items that can also still be found online.
We started out hunt on the main floor where there are still a few bags left from the prior markdowns. We found this Alexander McQueen clutch that’s now $898 from $2245. A floral print Jimmy Choo beach bag is $550 from $1095 and quilted Lanvin Happy bags are about $1200 from $2420. You see more pics of sale bags over here.
Heading to the third floor, designer clothing, there is still a great variety of summer fashion ripe for the picking. Today the discount is 60% but tomorrow it will all be 70% off. We found a stylish Prabal Gurung jacket that comes to $840 from $2800, a blue floral Peter Philotto dress is $537 from $1792, an Antonion Berardi fishtail dress is about $650 from $2100 and a colorful Mary Katrantzou dress is also about $600 from $2020. There is still a small selection of Chanel clothing at 40% off. We are told that there will be no further markdowns but we wouldn’t be surprised if another discount was taken in a few weeks.
In the shoe department, on eight, there is a huge variety of shoes. The assortment is really staggering. Almost all shoes will hit 70% off. The only exceptions are Louboutin and Chanel, which are still only 30% off. While browsing, we found Saint Laurent studded leather pumps for under $400 from about $1100, a Miu Miu wave d’Orse for $243 from $675 and Jimmy Choo PVC high heel sandals for $450 from $900.
