I got a postcard in the mail yesterday from Saks. Next Thursday, May 6, and Friday, May 7, they will start putting out their sale merchandise. Expect to see 30-40% off selected merchandise for men and women, but not all departments will be included. (Let's keep our fingers crossed for bags and shoes!) It goes 'live' on Saturday, May 8.
The fine print says some strange things, like some things will cease to be on sale May 7th-- does this mean some items are on sale for the preview and never make it to the public sale? It also says that price adjustments will be restricted to 7 days post-purchase of FULL PRICE items. So if you've bought anything as of Thursday, you will want to make sure it doesn't go on sale-- or you'll have to go running back to get credit if so.
