1) Clearance (of overstocked or low-velocity items, or seasonal holdover inventory that needs to move out).
2) Promotion (of new items, or of the brand to new customer bases).
3) Activation (of existing customers, i.e., an attempt to get them to spend more, or to bring dormant customers back into the fold).

RL, in particular, can be relied upon for type 1 and type 3 sales on a regular and predictable basis. It's not as big on type 2 sales, given that it's a very well established brand. Unfortunately, type 2 is the sort of sale where you'd be most likely to see legitimate, timeless staples sold at discount. But sometimes you'll find staples for sale in a seasonal sale.

very insightful. thanks.

Are purple label dress shirts on sale?
post #498 of 888
Update:

Private sale starts April 25th. Mostly blue label and RRL. 30% off plus 15% kicker. Note kicker is only available the first week. 4/25-5/1.

No cordovans included.

As always, I can help you guys get anything from the stores or order online. I work in RRL at the Chicago store, but know the other labels very well.

Thanks,

Robert

Robert, will the Darwin model shoes ever go on sale? I have a pair that I bought on ebay, I love them, and I'd liike another pair, but can't justify paying full retail.

Not usually. However, I have seen purple label shoes on sale for as little as 500.

Can someone explain to me how exactly a RL private sale works? I am also curious to know if the private sales are world wide or US only.
post #504 of 888
Rob, is RRL usually included in the Private Sale? One of the stores near me always seems to exclude all RRL.

In the RRL thread he said 30% + kicker , "Included groups: transcontinental, Santa fe, Brittany, and spring icon. Accessories associated with the groups are included. Select footwear."

Like what? Alls I want is a basic blue label navy suit for as cheap as possible. What's the deal with the 15% "kicker"? Is this in-store only? I didn't get a postcard this year.
