leyla m you are right about the sales and stuff, but like I went to the Mulberry sale here in London the other day and I was quiet dissapointed with that as well..didn't seem like a sample sale as the prices were really close to retail and well the selection was kind of not that great!

not sure about mulberry but i know that all the big department stores in london are having big issues since last winter, leftover stock so the starting discount starts very big.
that is why i simply do not GET outnet.com.

there are so many beautiful shoes up there yet when the louboutin sale went up 80% of the shoes were but guess what, sold out since it is louboutin, regardless of the discount...
anything less that 60% (ok maybe some 50% exceptions) it is so not worth it

leyla - I am with you, theOutnet.com is simply not doing anything for me.

The prices are not attractive for stock that are at least a few seasons old...in fact I find the current sale on NAP itself more enticing. That and that sales have started everywhere else, together with other sample sale sites, just makes me think that theOutnet.com needs to pull up its socks pronto!

PrincessImp. - I didn't see any sale on NAP going on now - I guiess they'll be again the last one to go on sale.
BTW Polyanna started the sale 40 % of Jil Sander, YSL and Lanvin
theOutnet.com is a joke!

what really annoys me is that the outnet and NAP have gone back to their original model of having like 2 pieces of an item so that it sells out quickly, thus creating a BUY NOW culture where if you don't snap something up, it's gone. So they are trying to stop people from lingering and encouraging people to just blindly buy. That is the point of the Loubs, the flash sales, and all that. It's so annoying.

^Agreed. What amazes me though is that people are falling for it...I can't help but wonder how many people are unhappy/disappointed once their purchases arrive...

i agree with everyone's comments about the prices!

also isn't it really annoying that they take ages to take down the items that get sold out? i go in and i'm like 'oh this is nice!' only to see it's sold out. a chloe bag a while ago was announcing sold out for like, 3 weeks

i've realised that because of events like that, eg things being sold out, or not having enough of a discount i just dont bother checking the website everyday like i thought i would when it was first launching.

stella mccartney on sale now....the reductions as usual aren't too impressive but there's loads of lingerie for a pretty good price!

they had this beautiful patent miu miu bag the other day, i got the newsletter and went straight on the website only to notice the bag had already sold out

i give up on the outnet, to be honest!
