Saks Fifth Avenue wants to keep up with the times, and one way to do that is to get in on the flash sale action, à la Gilt, Rue La La, and many other online sample sale sites. The department store giant held its first private online sales event, called “FashionFix,” which was accessible only through Saks’ email newsletter (you can sign up at the bottom of Saks’ homepage).
Quickie online designer sales seem to be getting billed as the wave of the shopping future. We love anything that gets us handbags and denim at a steal of a price, so we certainly hope the trend keeps up. In the meantime, be sure to check all your favorite online sample sale haunts on a regular basis in order not to miss anything – these deals often disappear in the blink of an eye.
