For people in NY, this sale has been going on and I checked it out for some shoes. Currently, shoes/bag/clothes are 40% but the SA told me that they are slashing some more right after Xmas. LOTS of selections in shoes, esp. a lot of cute Bottegas, including boots. In general, they have the best end of season shoe sales, and over the summer, I got a pair of gucci sandals and manolos for 80% (around $150 final price). I find they cut prices a lot more generously than Bergdorf's and Barneys. today i saw a pair of dior that i really liked and there was only one left, so I ended up buying it ($280 after discount).
