The Saks Fifth Avenue Friends & Family sale started online and in stores. Despite the attractive 25% off discount clothing, shoes and accessories, there aren’t many designer options included in the promotion.
Far gone are the days of a friendly Prada discount but there are still some designer-y items from which to choose. The friends and family sale is bundled in one link but Saks was extra tricky and added sale merchandise that’s not eligible for the additional discount. Look closely before clicking.
Among the designers included in the sale section, shoppers can apply the discount to Acne, Edie Parker and Adam Lippes. There aren’t many bags included in the sale. There’s only one Anya Hindmarch bag available in the promotional section and over here, we found Edie Parker clutch is $900 from $1200.
The shoe selection is pretty bleak if you’re looking for premium designer discounts. The section is filled with designer sale merchandise but almost none are eligible for the friends and family discount. Remember, only certain items are qualified.
Some of our favorite items included in the markdown include, this Clu polka stripped open-sleeve top that’s $112 from $150, a Milly dot print blouse is $266 from $355, DVF boots $366 from $450 and Alice & Olivia heels are $318 from $425.
We aren’t too surprised by this sly Saks friends & family sale but think it would be more fitting to change the name to the Saks Trick or Treat sale. For what it’s worth, the promotion runs through Sunday online and in stores but we wouldn’t be surprised if there was an extension. Tick or treat…
