My MANy Bags Sales Updates #51

Club 21 Spring Summer 2010 End Of Season Sale: Members Preview Starts
1 July 2010

Yes, it is finally here... after almost all your Visa Card 'ammunition' have been exhausted from other sales, Club 21 is starting theirs at a very late date this year. Mark your calenders if you are a Club 21 cardmember, preview sales starts 1 July 2010. An extra 10% discount will be added on to the existing discount for that day. Grab your style steals the likes of Lanvin, Marni, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Dries Van Noten, Mulberry and many many more. This is the sale that is worth all the prior self restraint...

Sale will be open to the public thereafter on Friday...

(Last I know from last Sat's visit to Club21 mens... neon yellow Balmain jeans (SGD $2400 before discount) at size 29 is still available... Dries Van Noten Tie Belt (similar to mine) at SGD $550 (before discount) is awaiting ownership and Mihara Yasuhiro Ankle Wrap Lace-ups, size 26.5 and 27 at SGD $940 (before discount) are pending your feet...)

Hi Kevin! Any idea what would be put on sale for Balenciaga and Mulberry?

Kevin @ myMANybags said...

I think all seasonal collections. Classic pieces will not go on sale, such as Balenciaga motorcycle range of bags and accessories we all love, and Alexa bags (which I doubt will go on sale). The rest should be marked down.

Hi Anonymous,

During sale season, stores will not hold items for customers. So I think Madeline is not being rude at all. It's only right the sale items have to be offered on a first come first serve basis. And the reason for holding a members preview sale is to reward members for their continued support and patronage.

Do you know that Elite members who spend $100,000 in a year have preview sale 2 weeks before the rest of the members? It's how customer relationship management reward your most esteemed customers first. I did not even get to shop the sale that early!

So do not feel bad, this is how retail works. Established a relationship with the SAs is important. Treat them with respect and they will always be willing to offer you their best service.

Hope this helps.

Anyone out there want to lend me their Club 21 card # so I can get the additional 10% discount? There's a Marc Jacobs bag I've been eyeing for months now!

Hi Kelvin

Yeah no offence to anonymous but after spending so much money to become a 'regular', one certainly deserves to get some perks. Manage to get 2 balenciaga shirts on sale 2 days back although i am just a regular c21 member. They are kind enough to offer discount although the actual member sale is on thurs.
Btw the mihara ankle lace up they have only the greyish black version. I have been searching high and low for a brown leather shoe and my quest is still on :(
And the balenciaga high tops which i have been lusting doesnt have my sizes anymore:(
