Do SAks - NM - Nordstrom's Get Same Bags in Same Colors

  1. I posted this as a reply to a post I started earlier about today's NM Willow Bend trunk show but this is specific question & unless someone was reading that thread they may not see my question which is specific to whether different stores get bags in different colors. See below. Thanks.


    What I covet is the jumbo with silver HW (the original 228 which is now A37591 $3495).

    NM WB store is not getting this size in silver which I saw in smaller size. They had jumbo in blue which is gorgeous but not my color.

    The Chanel rep told the SA that she should call other NM's to get the bag for me particularly stores who have not had their trunk shows yet. The SA seemed to think that another store would not give theirs up or they would have wait lists. SA said she would call me.

    I decided that I might try calling Saks or Nordstrom's. I called one of the Saks stores and was told they have this bag on order in black (and blue) which is really what I wanted. I had asked at NM if it came in black & was told no. The Saks SA told me NM may not have ordered this bag in black.

    The Saks SA said they are getting 4 & I would be #4 on the list.

    How do I make sure it's the same bag as the one I saw at NM?

    I know I saw a post somewhere that had all the styles & sizes & colors & prices. Can someone direct me to it?

    Is this true that some stores get certain colors & others don't. I would be surprised NM would not order in black.

    If I get the bag from Saks (I gave SA my CC#) & it's not the right one, I assume I can ship back & return?

  2. Yes it's true. Also, just because you see a bag at the trunk show doesn't mean that that particular store will carry it. For S/S07 NM trunk show they were showing off the red lambskin jumbo, but NONE of the U.S. stores ordered the red jumbo in lambskin.:shrugs:

    Yes, you can return an unused bag (in original condition) back to Saks if it doesn't suit you.
