Today is my personal favorite holiday. Since my family spends Christmas going to the movies and testing out the various Chinese restaurants on the Upper West Side, I’m not super attached to Christmas. I am, however, attached to the day-after-Christmas sales. This morning, I scored a pair of Pradas and a pair of Miu Mius and got both for under $400.
Deals on Bags(Page 6)
We love any sale that emphasizes handbags, obviously, and the Semi-Annual Handbag Sale within the Bloomingdale’s After Christmas Sale and Clearance is pretty great, especially if you’re looking to score a bag from designers like Rebecca Minkoff, Tory Burch, Marc by Marc Jacobs or Kate Spade. For my money, Bloomingdale’s also has the best markdowns on clothes – you won’t believe how much they discount stuff during a good sale.
The best sales are when the sale goes on sale. Ok, so I know a sentence that uses one word three times can be a little hard to follow, but here’s what’s going on with our friends at Kate Spade: Now through January 6, you can take an extra 25% off sale items with code 25SALE. With Spade’s already-generous discounts, that means you can get anything from an adorable new bag to some new statement jewelry at a huge discount off of retail.
As seasoned online shoppers know, Net-a-Porter’s legendary seasonal sales come in two waves – first, customers in North and South America shop the markdowns on the inventory from their side of the world, and later, customers in Europe, Asia, Australia and parts of Africa get to shop markdowns on their merchandise. The Net-a-Porter American Sale is still going on if you’re in the Western Hemisphere, but the NAP sale for the other half of the world just launched this morning!
If you’ve found yourself browsing the Neiman Marcus sale section over the last week or two and wished that the prices were just a little bit better, you’re in luck. Neiman Marcus has taken additional discounts on almost every item, starting at an extra 25% off. This sale is absolutely chock full of amazing options (seriously, there are over a thousand shoe options on sale), so if you want to add some new clothes or accessories to your Christmas haul, NM is a great place to do it.
The day after Christmas is second only to Black Friday when it comes to getting awesome deals at all your favorite shopping spots, so if you didn’t find everything you wanted under your tree yesterday, stick with us this morning as we give you the lowdown on the best sales in the Internet today. We’re start with the ShopBop End-of-Season Sale, which brings hundreds of new markdowns across the site, in addition to further markdowns on existing sale options.
The time for online gift shopping has more or less wound down, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to stop thinking about ways to treat yourself. After all, you deserve a little something for buying, wrapping, cooking and playing host to relatives that may or may not be the most insufferable people on the face of the planet. And if you don’t actually have to do any of that this year, well…count yourself lucky and reward yourself for some other noble feat you’ve accomplished.
At this point in the retail season, it’s tempting to convince yourselves that the fabulous sales will never end and the next discount is just a fortuitous click away. Don’t be fooled – the lower prices are liable to disappear just as quickly as they landed, and with them, so too will disappear your opportunity to expand your wardrobe for a reasonable price.
Normally we reserve our posts about great bag deals for Fridays, but during this time of year, there’s too many great bargains to be had to relegate them all to a single day of the week. Today, we’re happy to resort that not only does SSENSE’s Winter Sale have additional discounts on a lot of already-reduced items, but some great new pieces have been added to the sale.
This is the time of year where the sales are dangerously good, so proceed at your own risk. Once you’ve decided you’re ready to take the plunge, though, we’ve got our weekly roundup of the best bag buys on the Internet waiting for you after the jump. Don’t limit yourself, though – Neiman Marcus, Net-a-Porter, Barneys, SSENSE and Bergdorf Goodman all have crazy-good sales going on right now.
