Hello Longtime tPF member, but new to the BV designer forum. I am looking to buy a large Veneta in black. April birthday coming up, DH isn't a shopper, etc., etc. We've been together almost 20 years...so he knows by now not to pick out anything himself. I received a special order LV Damier Cabas Mezzo for my 40th last year, and I like the idea of getting another classic style bag for the memento. It's basically the only time I can get away with such a pricey bag from hubby. I have a new customer 10% code that Saks.com sent me that I would love to utilize for this purchase...but they don't have that BV bag in black. Is BV new to Saks.com, and do you feel they may carry it in the near future? What should I do? Do the actual Saks stores carry the black? Should I call a BV boutique (I am near South Coast Plaza) to see if they will honor the discount if I buy it directly from them? Or, is there anywhere else to buy it in the general 10% off price range? I know the classic colors don't go on sale...but I have faith in you ladies! I would like to get it somewhere that if something should go wrong with the bag, customer service would not be a problem. Or.... any other suggestions...please send them my way! TIA! On a sidenote, I am also considering a Ball in ebano, but that isn't a problem, as Saks carries it online.
