As predicted, Neiman Marcus started their unofficial second markdown today. Customers can now save an extra 25% off, which will bring the total discount to 55% off. The sale won’t be live to the public until Monday but you can access the additional Neiman Marcus discount using this link.
We suggest you use this early access opportunity to grab some of the items that most quickly sold out when Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys took their second discount. For example, this Valentino pink Rockstud spike bag didn’t last a day. It’s now $1572 from nearly $2800. Over this way, is a gorgeous blue Bottega Veneta woven bag that’s reduced to $1400 from $2550 and a Fendi ruffled bag is $1260 from $2800. There is still a large variety of bags from Balenciaga and Givenchy.
We suggest you grab something you like right now, while it’s available. The good bags usually don’t stick around to the third markdown. If you’re a frequent in-store shopper you can get lucky and fight a late-season return but it’s not an absolute.
Moving on to shoes, the discount, for some reason, doesn’t seem as good. Shoppers can still find a big assortment of Valentino. These classic Rockstud spikes are $435 from nearly $900. Those Gucci sale style shoes are not going anywhere fast. There is still a full assortment of styles and even with the additional discount, some styles are still pricey. These Manolo slides are $380 from $679 and Fendi espadrilles with pearls are $500 from $750.
The clothing discounts are about the same as most other retailers. Some items seem reduced more than others. We suggest you do a search before completing any order or you can just wait for the third markdown when it’s hard to find something not to buy.
