Jingle bells aren’t ringing but we are merry and cheery as Saks Fifth Avenue begins presale for its first markdown of the season. Saks Fifth Avenue started presale today and the seasonal markdown ritual will be officially public starting Tuesday morning.
The biggest highlight of the Saks sale is the Gucci merchandise. No other store seems has publicly offered any discount on Gucci merchandise– yet. The markdown assortment isn’t wonderful but 40% off is all we need to begin celebrating the sale season.
Among the Gucci merchandise that’s discounted 30% to 40% off are Gucci fur slides in blue velvet, embroidered sneakers, black and gold ‘Guccy’ pool slides, Gucci print all-over pumps, Vegas loafers, and various other styles. The sale also includes some styles of Gucci bags, including floral prints, butterfly styles and some styles of pouches. You can see pictures of more styles over here.
Beyond Gucci, there is a healthy selection of Balenciaga shoes. These Balenciaga slides are $206 from $500 and these sneakers come to $486 from almost $700. There are also lots of Valentino and Givenchy bags on markdown. This medium Rockstud bag is 40% off or $804 from $1345 and this velvet Rockstud Spike top handle bag is about $1900 from $2745. Just about every size, color, and shape of the Givenchy Antigona are on sale along with a variety of Saint Laurent bags, including Matelasse style bag. Pictures are in the jump.
Again… Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Celine, and other designers aren’t part of the markdown yet. Usually, those brands are added in early December and within days of the second markdown. Just don’t expect to find those Opium pumps hanging around waiting for you.
