Too lazy to trek to the dozens of sample sales that go down each season? Make a one-stop shop at the semi-annual Saks Fifth Avenue consolidation sale, which returns for the spring/summer season July 19th. Sale merchandise from a host of designer brands will take over the department store's ninth floor, and discounts will hit 70% off.
Opening day can be a little frenzied, and often the department store will offer pre-sale a day or two ahead of time where you can pay the discounted price but you have to come back to pick it up the day of the sale. Two trips could be worth it for seriously marked down Stella McCartney and the like.
