Remember that dark time that Saks told us that they wouldn't be doing their consolidation sale anymore (or did you black out that memory, too)? Turns out it was a hoax: Madison Avenue Spy says that it's back in action—so thanks for tugging on our heartstrings, Saks. Their website's landing page specifies that discounts are up to 70% off, and anything that's marked down more than 60% off retail price can't be returned.
Browse online for an idea of what you'll find in person at the Fifth Avenue flagship, like Manolo Blahnik BB heels for $278, an Elizabeth and James dress for just over $100, and an Alexander Wang sneaker clutch for $518. And if you're near a Saks Off Fifth outlet, check in to see if any of the good stuff has ended up there for even less.
