Luxury retail stores are feeling the pressure to make room for the new cruise collections. In doing so, extra discounts promotions are being used to entice shoppers to ‘buy more stuff.’ Right now, Barneys is offering an extra 20% off already reduced coats, shoes and bags.
Over this way, we found a groovy Saint Laurent lamé mini dress that’s $800 from $2700 after the additional discount the total price is just $640. That’s about 80% off! Amiri red leather pants are $500 from $2050. So tempted!
There aren’t many bags included in the extra 20% off promotion but there are plenty of shoes. Maison Margiela tall fold-over boots come to $550 from $1735, we are crazy for this Alchimia di Ballin low boots that are now $280 from $900. These Prada heart espadrille platforms are perfect for Valentines day and reduced to $399 from $1250. T
he assortment in the store is even larger and the extra discount also applies to Chanel and Louboutin. There was even an ugly Chanel shoe siting where the final price was 80% off retail.
We don’t know how long the markdown will last but we can’t imagine it will be for very long. Barneys usually ships out its winter Merchandise before February. We don’t expect any further discounts. Ladies, it’s now or never.
