Yesterday we got word that Saks Fifth Avenue started its presale. Pictures started pouring in and we couldn’t believe our eyes. The markdown is 40% off on most items and the selection is really almost too good to believe. The sale officially goes live online on Monday.
The main floor of handbags is a little hard to navigate. Many of the spaces are leased and not cooperating traditionally. For now, we suggest you focus your attention on participating handbag brands, which include Valentino, Balenciaga, Chloe, and Prada. You can click here to see pictures of what’s included in the markdown. All Valentino bags are 40% off, Chloe is 40% off, Balenciaga is priced 30% to 50% off and Prada is 40% off.
Heading to shoes, you will find all the presale racks behind the elevators. We were most impressed by the Gucci selection, which consists of lots of classic style Princetowns, sneakers, and a variety of sandals and slides. We have pictures in the jump and also tagged the styles above so that you can add them to your cart when the sale goes live online.
Bloomingdales also has a markdown on Gucci shoes. The discount is 50% off but the selection isn’t as good as Saks. We added those pictures to the jump too.
The Saks shoe selection also consists of a great assortment of Manolo Hangisi heels and flats. The sale racks are also filled with an assortment of Fendi, Givenchy and Jimmy Choo. We have tons of pictures in the jump.
If there is an item you like, we suggest you jump on the opportunity. We’ve listed lots of contact information. The sale goes live online on Monday (and more designers on Tuesday). It wouldn’t be a bad idea to fill your cart now and use the weekend to edit.
