Last night I received call from my shoe SA at Nordstrom indicating they are doing pre-sale for the Designer merchandise going on sale 11/28. I stopped by and pre-sold two pair of boots - 1 each of Prada and Gucci. The boots will be 30% off and from what I was told, pre-sale is going on in most designer departments. I didn't get a chance to go to handbags, but I am sure they are doing the same. Neiman Marcus does not start their pre-sale until the Sunday after Thanksgiving.... I purchased the flat version of the Prada boot in brown suede for $679 and the Gucci Britt boot will be $767.
