It's the best time of the season...well, almost. Barneys New York is starting its 40% off sale next Monday, Madison Avenue Spy is reporting, with the department store offering discounts across all categories — apparel, bags, children's clothes, shoes, you name it.
The Spy writes that shoppers will find a lot of unexpected items included in the sale's discounted range, like Manolo Blahnik Haganisi heels in various colors and classic styles from Valentino, Givenchy, and Saint Laurent.
Though 40% off is a great opening discount, it's worth noting that if you can hold out until the beginning of June, you'll be able to score even bigger savings on big-time labels like Chanel, Aläia, and Christian Louboutin.
