Barneys Warehouse Sale

After a tipster’s tip, I had to stop by Thursday night just before the doors closed at the Barneys Warehouse Sale to check out the additional markdowns.  Organizers have slashed sale prices even further.  Now, you’ll get an additional 40% off women’s designer clothing and shoes. But be warned (as one Sally source pointed out), the extra discount is for ‘red star’ stamped designer pieces only.  When I scoped out the scene Thursday, the place was pretty empty and there was plenty of merchandise left.  Those Lanvin for Acne dresses were in abundance.  Plus, Marc Jacobs, Costume National, Balenciaga, Prada, Stella McCartney and more.  As for shoes, there were stacks of them; Louboutin heels, the Lanvin platform denim pumps, Prada strappy sandals and more.  Bad news for men, the goods downstairs remain at 25% off the sale price.  Included in that markdown are the Barneys and Hugo Boss suits.  However, there’s no additional discount for the other high-end designer suits. That fact was disappointing to my boyfriend who is waiting for the Burberry suit he spotted to drop in price.  A sales associate said he didn’t know when they plan to further mark down the men’s merchandise.

The sale prices are sure to keep going down.  Stay tuned… We’ll keep you posted on additional discounts.
