The only time I shop Sacks is between seasons, particularly towards the end of summer. This is when they're desperately unloading Spring merchandise, while making room for Fall. I still brag about the navy cable-knit Ralph Lauren $26 bikini I scored a few years ago. I still wear it too.
And then there's Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th. (We'll call if Off 5th for now.)
The beauty of Off 5th is, you can buy discounted clearance merchandise year-round, rather than waiting for breaks between fashion seasons. An added bonus, those prices are often marked down to the extreme, particularly during peak sale times, such as holiday weekends and breaks in season.
From May 27 through June 2, 2009, you can print a coupon for 40% any single item, by clicking HERE >> The offer cannot be combined with other discounts, does not extend to clearance offers, and cannot be used online. (So why say 40% off "any" single item?)
