Weekend Shopping: Finding the Best Discount (Chanel too)

December 13, 2018 by Lila Delilah

We only have a few days of shopping before Christmas. Monday is actually the last day of ground shipping for many retailers. Almost all of our favorite stores have taken a second markdown but discounts vary.

One would expect to universally save 60% off women’s clothing but Saks Fifth Avenue is a little tricky. Their designer clothing is reduced by 30% to 60% off. The more popular the brand, the lower the Saks discount. Shoes are also reduced by just 30%, which isn’t very competitive. On the bright side, the racks are still overflowing with options. (You can click here to see pictures inside the store.)

Barneys just added another price cut to its Louboutin selection, which is now reduced by 60%. You can click to see what we found. The sale selection is getting pretty thin over on Madison. We did find a few standouts including silver Paul Andrew pumps that are $379 from $745 and Manolo Hangisi pumps like these are about $400 from $1025.

In other news, Barneys will be starting its Chanel presale on Friday. The discount will be 40% off.  Flip to the jump to see the shoe styles we suspect will be included in the markdown. The Chanel presale at Bergdorf Goodman will begin on FRIDAY too but the discount is just 30%. On the flip side, we think the selection is better at BG. You can read all about it and see pictures in our previous post. 

Keep in mind, lots of online retails are running great promotions too. On Farfetch, you can save an additional 20% off sale items with the code F20D. Net-A-Porter just started a second markdown where discounts have hit 70% on some items. Shopbop is offering an extra 30% off reduced merchandise through Thursday only and don’t forget to check Ssense before purchasing anything that isn’t on sale. They seem to have at least a little discount on almost everything,

Below is a comparison chart of Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue. As usual, Barneys is the clear winner across the board. The next and final markdown usually happens after Christmas.
