Keep Summer Alive With Our Favorite End-of-Season Sales
Aug 24, 2011 - by Amanda Gabriele
The only positive point about summer coming to an end is the string of fabulous end-of-season sales all around the city and online. Because NYC summers usually last well into September, we're all feeling a wardrobe refresher is needed to layer with our lighter fall pieces, just in time for Fashion Week. Now is the time to buy, but we understand the sale racks can be intimidating. Here are the FashionIndie editors' picks for favorite end-of-season sales - we scoured the racks so you don't have to.
Saks Fifth Avenue - Saks always gives us something to look forward to when a season is ending. This Ports 1961 dress will take you into fall, and you'll pay $360 LESS than the original price.
Intermix - We love Intermix for basics and funky fresh staples. Everyone needs a season-less, lightweight sweater, and you can love this Joie Open Weave Sweater for $149 instead of $248.

LF Stores - Since editor Jessica snagged an invitation to this private pre- end-of-summer sale, she and her Jeffrey Campbell s have a special place in their hearts for LF. Check out the brand's website to find a store near you.

Topman - We love Topman and Topshop for both style and prices, but we'll take a sale any day. "I'm all about a varsity jacket, very classic," Mac said about this Topman Burgundy Shawl Baseball Jacket, on sale for $38.
Karmaloop - If streetwear is what you're looking for, Karmaloop is your one-stop-shop for everything cool. Layering is a must for fall, and this Publish The Pierre Buttondown Shirt will take you there at 33 percent off.

Housing Works - Even if you can't enjoy the phenomenon that is Housing Works from the comfort of NYC, you can shop the incredible deals online. The sales on top of their everyday low prices are amazing - this Hawks by Geren Ford top is only $12.
Buffalo Exchange - Walking into this thrift store is like walking on the clouds of happiness all through the year. But you can snag some fantastic end-of-season deals, like the Miu Miu leather shoes I bought for $33 last week. Find a store near you via their website.
Last but not least, Lester's got some for you on page 5.
Duane Reade - "Sometimes a girl needs an emergency pregnancy test at 3 a.m. and I don't know how many times those bonus rewards points have saved my life, and more importantly, the rest of my night," Lester said. Plus, half-price sunscreen is just what we need for those last few days on the beach.
Bitches in Harlem - "Two words: Free doorknockers" - Lester
