While most Americans are planning their Thanksgiving meals, we are stalking our favorite boutiques for the first opportunities to shop markdowns. We uncovered some early hits of sale season. We will continue to update the site as we uncover more sale intel.
This year the Italian lifestyle brand officially started their sale a bit earlier than usual. Right now, you can save 30% off on handbags and 50% off on most other items in the boutique. Bottega’s colors this season were really beautiful, which makes this a great opportunity to grab a classic style bag in a fabulous color. Included in the markdown is the large hobo in pink, wine and tourmaline. While in the boutique, we also spotted this Karung & Ayers Snakeskin bag and Double Handle Leather Totes in lots of pretty pastel colors. The discount isn’t yet available online but bags are never discounted on the website.
Pre-sale will begin on Friday. The discounts will range from 40% to 50% off but the final determination on discounts has not been made. The sale selection will include seasonal items from the pre-fall and fall collections. That means you can snag savings on lots of prints from the latest collections. This season the shoe collection was a snooze. It’s been quite some time since Prada has had a blockbuster collection but our love remains unconditional.
If you’re looking to snag a nice saving on YSL we suggest you head there fast as the boutique’s sales people are currently calling dibs on the best items. We hear that the sale will officially begin on November 30. Finding a transparent sales person isn’t always easy but persistence will payoff if there’s an item that’s specifically interesting. Be on the lookout for a 30% discount on bags including patent and studded Sac De Jour bags, lipstick print bags and fringed styles. In the shoe section, select Tributes will be discounted 20% and other shoes will be 30% to 40% off.
The pre-sale at Valentino officially begins on Friday, November 20. Again, be sure to let a sales person know now if there’s something specific that catches your eye. The discount is 40%. The black and white combo Rockstuds are included in the markdown along with yellow, pink, wine, brown and animal prints.
