Sales! It’s that time of year again when retailers gear up for holiday shopping. What’s different about this year is that retailers are having black friday deals early to entice customers to shop all month long, and not just Black Friday–or Black Thursday as it should be called from now on. Many department stores like Target, Walmart, Macy’s and Kohl’s will open up between 6-8pm. So you can walk off that food coma in the department store aisles. If you’re feeling really ambitious, you should head out to Old Navy; they open at 9am on Thanksgiving day!
However, if you’re like me and don’t want to bother with all of the crowds but still want all of your favorite designer clothes, shoes, and accessories on sale (yes I said on sale) then you need to check out Nordstrom’s Women and children’s half yearly sale! Designers like Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Vince Camuto, Tory Burch, Trina Turk, and Burberry have select items up to 40% off. If shoes, and and handbags are your thing, then this is the sale for you! Sam Edelman, Dolce Vita, Coach, Diane von Furstenburg, and everyone’s favorite Frye boots are some of the featured designer shoe and handbags with discounts.
My favorite part of the sale? The jewelry of course! I snagged this gold letterpress Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace, and House of Harlow sunburst necklace–both 50% off regular price! The half yearly sale is constantly changing so be sure to check back to see what else has been added!
Target and Neiman Marcus have just announced a collaboration for this holiday season. They have chosen to sell the collab clothes, accessories, and shoes in BOTH stores. This team up will include items from 24 designers. Some of the most notable designers are Carolina Herrara, Derek Lam, Diane von Furstenberg, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, and Tory Burch according to Women’s Wear Daily. The collection will be in stores on December 1, 2012. The items will range from $7.99 to $499.99 but most are reported to being less than $60.
Time will only tell how these sales will do. I have a feeling they will do great in the Target locations and badly in the Neiman Marcus locations. If someone is going to Neiman Marcus why would they buy something that is made for Target, they would just go to Target if they wanted that. I am hoping that all of the cheaper things will still be amazingly chic and trendy, and I have a feeling they will be. I cannot imagine who is willing to buy clothing from Target that is $499.99 but we will see.
