Most stores have already started their first markdowns on contemporary and luxury lines but there are always a few brands that strong-arm all retail outlets to hold off on discounts. Starting now, you will be able to pre-sale seasonal merchandise from brands like Chanel and Louboutin at 30% to 40%, depending on the store and the item. The official sale markdown date is Friday, December 11.
At the Chanel boutique clothing and shoes are discount 40%. In most department stores Chanel shoes are discounted 30% and clothing is 40%. The Chanel shoe discount at Bloomingdales and Barneys is 40%. The same formula applies to Louboutin: Barneys and Louboutin boutiques are offering 40% off but Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman are discounting the red soles 30%.
Chanel doesn’t sell shoes or clothing online and the markdowns haven’t been taken to the red soles in cyberspace. Louboutin handbags are discounted 30% at Saks Fifth Avenue online and Barneys.
If you have something particular in mind, we suggest contacting a reliable sales person to keep an eye out for your anticipated purchase. Last season, Chanel didn’t take a second markdown and many stores– including Bloomingdales– were stuck with racks and racks of winter clothing.
