Here's what to expect from the department stores this weekend for Mother's Day shopping. The Barneys spring sale has begun, and Saks has just announced a "sneak preview" of its first markdown, however, designer goods don't seem to be included yet. And then there's Bloomingdale's unadvertised designer sale on Yigal Azrouël, Zac Posen, Vera Wang, and more. The discount at all three stores? 40% off.
