This is the tail end of sale season. Most winter collections will be removed from stores in the next two weeks. For now, you can lap up the last days of sale and the most extreme markdowns. Right now, Saks Fifth Avenue is offering customers a savings of 70% off clothing and an extra 25% off, which brings the final tab to nearly 80% off retail.
Take note, we don’t see the additional 25% off promotion offered to online shoppers. After further inquiry, a phone operator told us that you can place your online order and call afterwards to get a price adjustment.
Among the designer clothing on the third floor, we found red Loewe leather hot pants that come to $450 from about $2000, a Fendi floral print dress is $640 from $2850 and a red Givenchy coat is $1800 from over $6000. You can head this way to see pictures from the third floor.
Upstairs, in the shoe department, there are still plenty of racks of sale shoes. Most shoe styles are 60% off and there aren’t any additional promotions. On the bright side, the Vetements x Manolo collaboration has hit the ‘racks.’ We found Vetements x Manolo satin ankle boots that are now $800 from nearly $2000 and stain pumps with an ankle strap are $710 from $1775. Other interesting finds are basic Chanel pumps that were priced at $300 from $750, Roger Vivier espadrilles are $290 from $725, Gucci flatforms $575 from $1150, Prada embellished mules are $396 from $990 and Miu Miu fur slides are $380 from $950. Pictures and prices are right this way.
Saks gets very fussy during final markdowns. There are no exchanges or returns accepted once merchandise is reduced more than 60% off. It kind of seems to defeat the purpose of shopping in a department store but it’s hard to blame them for not wanting boomerang merchandise.
