The Super Secret Sale
We get to do this really cool thing in Designer when sale time rolls around. We get the lists of what will be going on sale about a week before the actual break-date of the sale, and then we get to call our fabulous customers and tell them the good news...otherwise known as pre-selling. We'll change the floor around so the pre-sale pieces are separated from the regular price and put up signs on those fixtures that say "Pre-Sale In Progress". If you don't have anyone you work with in the Designer departments and just happen to wander in, you too get to reap the benefits of the wonderful world of pre-sale. One of the reasons we do this is to make sure our customers get to secure the best of the best before the sales break in the other stores. Sneaky? Never. Convenient and brilliant? Absolutely. Shoes, handbags and apparel all fall under this magical spell (though not always at the same time) so it's best to find a buddy in at least one of the departments in order to be in the know. We just happen to be in pre-sale mode right now in apparel and the break-date just happens to be tomorrow. But, don't worry if you miss this one...Designer Finale is right around the corner (July) and is otherwise known as The Motherload. Oh yes...The Motherload.
