The Saks Friends & Family sale is always one of the best opportunities around to get designer goods at a steep discount. In particular check out Rag & Bone, Helmut Lang, Elie Tahari, and Ralph Lauren Blue Label. To get the extra 25-percent discount, use the code FRNFAM at checkout. If your order is over $200, you can also get free shipping with the code SFASHIP.
Unfortunately not all items are eligible for the bonus 25 percent off, but many are.  Conveniently, the items that are eligible for the Friends & Family discount are clearly labeled, which helps cut down on the disappointment one feels when putting an item in a shopping cart and realizing it is not eligible. We went fantasy shopping and found some cool designer stuff on steep discount for you. Check these out:
