Madison Avenue Spy reports that this spring's Hermès sale will run from March 24th to March 28th, with a preview day for VIPs on the 23rd. Last time, we found the sale pleasant and highly civilized after the hour-long wait to get in. We'll never forget the time we waited three hours in the hot sun (it was our retail Alamo), but the line has been reasonable ever since the recession hit, and we don't anticipate much of a change this time around.
If you can't wait till the end of March, though, you can always check out the sale at the label's Wall Street location. MadSpy is reporting 40% to 60% off ready-to-wear, though no bags are marked down.
