Heather's Couture Corner - Countdown to the Saks Fifth Avenue Friends and Family Sale

| BY Heather Kiely

So the countdown is on! I do not have the exact date of the Saks Friends and Family Sale, but I do know from talking to a Saks representative that it will be the middle of October. As soon as I know the exact date, I will post it on my blog:) Last year, I got some really amazing items at 25% off. What I love about the Saks Sale over any other sale is because they put classic items like Burberry all on sale for 25% off. There are usually no exclusions. If they put an exclusion, it is usually brands like Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, etc....


Let's say you are holding out for a Burberry classic coat or any winter designer coat.... Saks will have it at 25% off come mid-October!!! Unlike the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale where they pick certain items that are part of the sale (usually items that are not classics and frankly sometimes not that great). Were as, they pick certain items from a line, Saks put the whole line on sale. If a brand is included, all its items are part of the 25% off!!! Some items I got last year as part of the sale are my Chloe Ballet Flats, my Burberry Trench, and my Burberry Quilted Jacket. All amazing items I would have paid full price for if not for the sale! My Chloe shoes, I would say, are my favorite purchase. They are not only so incredibly comfortable, but also so original and flattering with their ballet pointe inspired straps.

Ok, so what can you do in the mean time? Well ladies, go onto and start making a list of your favorite items. This way come mid-October, you are ready to log on and get your items before they sell out of your size. Also don't forget to pre-sale if you live near a Saks Fifth Ave. Ask a local associate to call you when you can come in and pick out all your favorites before the sale even begins. She then holds them and rings them the day of the sale at the 25% off price, and you just pick up your order. So much easier than shopping with all of your not so closest friends!!! Looking for some extra cash to splurge on this upcoming sale? Check out our "Best Advisors" listings at and see how fast they can put money in your wallet! I'm Heather Kiely reminding you to keep your investments where you can see them; in your closet, of course!
