Neiman Marcus started a clearance sale where select reduced items are an additional 40% off. The extra markdown brings the total savings to 75% off original prices. This promotion is only online and ends on Sunday, June 28.
A pretty pink J. Mendel dress with lace detail comes to $735 from $3500, a suede Versace dress is under $400 from $1870 and an effortless aqua Halston Heritage dress is $82 from almost $400. There is a small shoe and handbag selection included in the clearance but it feels more like an expensive DSW than a great sale hunt. Spoiler alert: Lots of Sergio Rossi shoes and Jason Wu handbags.
Outside of the clearance section, normal summer sale merchandise is an extra 25% off. In the handbag area the added promotion brings the discount to 55% off. There are lots of the same bags we’ve been seeing throughout the sale season from Tom Ford, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen. Actually, this McQueen envelope bag/pouch is adorable for under $200.
Clothing is the same 60% off as most any other department stores. We are still waiting for these Dolce & Gabbana floral prints to dip under $1000 but this Alice & Olivia graphic maxi shirt dress is just about perfect at $313 from $700. (It’s the same print worn by First Lady, Michelle Obama.)
