The Review Rundown:
Saks Fifth Avenue is a luxury department store that most people have associated with Fifth Avenue in Manhattan forever. And while most of us aren’t consistently hitting high end department stores as part of our shopping experience, we definitely still like to look. Hey, it’s ok to like nice things! After browsing their site and checking out their online sales, I realized that there are still some affordable options – especially if you are looking for more of an investment piece, rather than fast fashion. They cover everything from women and men, to kids, beauty, home and more. Their sales are definitely worth a look, and it’s always fun to look!
Let’s dive a little deeper into a few things that are worth checking out. If you don’t normally shop luxury brands and higher end, classics and staples are always a good call. So when I hop on to browse, I’m looking for something that goes with almost everything (think versatile), and won’t go out of style by next season. This commuter tote, is a classic black, with tan straps, and is lightweight and water resistant. I’ve found that when shopping for a bag that will get a ton of use, durability and quality is key. I’m guilty of picking up super cheap totes, only to have them fall apart after being put through the every-day ringer.
Scrolling through their beauty section actually reminded me that I needed to pick up another bottle of Olaplex No. 3. I’ve been using this Hair Perfector Treatment for a couple of years now and it is absolutely a game changer. Especially if you have color treated hair (I’m talking to you highlights). I’ve been so impressed by this little bottle, that I’d like to try other products from this line as well. I also snagged a couple of tins of this vanilla hot chocolate – some to gift, and some to keep for the kids.
After spending a little time on Saks’ website, I learned that there actually are some reasonably priced products, and sometimes it’s worth spending just a little more for quality and longevity. Not everything on there is thousands of dollars. It’s also a cool place to purchase gifts, especially if you’re looking for something a little different. If you need a baby gift, they have great options. This Noodle and Boo Newborn Daily Essentials Set includes 2-in-1 body and hair wash, ointment, cleansing wipes and lotion. And this Jellycat stuffed animal Ravioli is the cutest – and chances are they won’t already have a stuffed ravioli to snuggle with. I bought the stuffed fried egg for my nephew. Love it!
These are a Few of Our Favorite Things:
Now that I’ve had a chance to browse, I do have a list of things I’d love to add to my cart. Below are a couple of items that caught my eye and made it to my wish list, as well as a new perfume that I do already own and love:
- A Classic Stretch Ball Bracelet – Check It Out Here
- A Rebecca Minkoff Envelope Clutch With Fun Detailing – Check It Out Here
- My Signature Scent Right Now – Check It Out Here
- A Water Repellant Golf Jacket For Men – Check It Out Here
- Their sale page actually has items at a reasonable price point.
- The kids and baby section has great gift ideas if you’re stumped.
- I could live in the beauty section. There are endless luxe beauty products.
- My wish list has a lot of items that are hundreds of dollars. Some are even thousands. But it is a luxury department store, so overall – that seems fair.
- It can be tough to find products that have reviews. And it’s tough to shell out that kind of money on line, without reading people’s experiences.
The Real Deal With Coupons + Promo Codes:
Let’s cut to the chase and be real. It’s Saks. Saks does not have coupon and promo codes floating around out there on the internet. If you head over to their site, they will have any current and working discounts right at the top. So if you need to know the latest on free shipping, and other ways to save that’s the best place to find it.
In the meantime, if you’re looking to shop here and save a little, you can get 10% off your online Saks Fifth Avenue order when you sign up for their free newsletter.
