The Saks Fifth Avenue friends and family sale doesn’t start for about a week but all good customers know that the best merchandise is snatched up during the presale period. The sale officially runs from Wednesday, March 21 through Sunday, April 2.
This season, the discount will be 25% off a selection of clothing, shoes and accessories. Jewelry will be discounted 20%. Instead of listing hundreds of designer exclusions and creating a special code, Saks essentially created a friends and family sale section on the website.
Some of the designer-y brands we expect to be included are Edie Parker, Les Petits Joueurs, Nancy Gonzalez and Anya Hindmarc. Among the shoes, we suggest going for Charlotte Olympia, Chiara Ferragni or something quirky from Alice & Olivia.
It’s much harder to speculate about what designer fashions might be included in the sale. It’s safe to suspect that most contemporary brands will be participating. We are hoping that some of the new emerging street wear brands, like Off-White, will be included in the promotion.
If you’re a point collector, you should take note that designers not included in the sale will be eligible for triple points. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the friends and family inclusions are plentiful. For now, stay tuned for this evolving story.
