Hello everyone,

I just got a notice from Miss Gini at SAKS Bal Harbour telling me that they will have a

20% OFF DAY ON OCT. 16TH

So if you need any of the Stronwater or the full distribution and are willing to wait until this date, just preorder the solids with her.

Here comes her e-mail address:

msgini4u@yahoo.com

Miss Gini also told me that Jay Strongwater will be signing solids at her store
on Dec. 4th.

Have a nice day, Brigitte

Hi Brigitte,

Thanks for the good information. I assume you are referring to the Bal Harbour Saks in Florida. Will they be taking 20% off the Lauder Solids? That would be wonderful. Well any information that you can give would be greatly appreciated.

By the way, my brother and his family lives in Switzerland near Bern. It is a beautiful country!

Nice talking with you,
Angelina

Maybe some of the members can correct me. Saks does a friends and families type of promotion and has 20% off once or twice a year. Nice idea but then you have to wait and play the game if there are any of the solids left in the store or if they will hold them for you

Hi Angelina,

yes, it's the SAKS in Florida. I guess it's like Ron said sort of promotion day, but you will have to wait until this date to get the solids. Also I understood that all EstČe merchandise is 20% off on this day. As far as I understood you can preorder the solid from Miss Gini.
Please be so kind as to call her or e-mail her for all details.
Miss Gini's phone # 001 305 865 1100 Ext. 362

Bern is only about an hour from Z¸rich where I live. When you visit your relatives next time just let me know and maybe we can meet somewhere.

Have a nice day, Brigitte

Hi Ron,

The Sak's promo here have started putting a time limit on their gift cards you get when you purchase $250 get $50 gift card. The gift cards are now only good for 60 days so if the solids don't come in time you are out of luck.

They are also at some Sak's not having the solids "available" when there is a promotion.

I find it very hard sometimes to take advantage of any of their promotions .

I don't know about Fla. stores but the ones I talk to will not hold solids very long till there is a promotion.

Let us know if the Fla. stores are different.

Thanks Brigitte, Ron, & Ann for the helpful information. I guess sometimes a sale is not always what it seems, but I will try to contact the lady that Brigitte spoke of. If you are able to pre-order than maybe that would work out. But I have found that in Florida if you see something you like you should go ahead and buy it because if you wait even a week, then it is usually gone. We get a lot of visitors from all over the world and the Lauder Solids are very popular and sell out quickly.

Also Brigitte, thank you for the offer to come and meet you in Switzerland someday. That would be very nice. And I too extend the same invitation to you if you are ever in Florida!

Take care and thanks again,
Angelina

Hi everyone,

Miss Gini From SAKS Bal Harbour asked me to remind all of you that on Oct. 16th the 20% off day will take place. so if anyone of you wants to order the solids just call her and she will ring them up on this day. She also sends the solids.

e-mail her

msgini4u@yahoo.com

or call her at work

305 865 1100 Ext. 362

She also asked me if anyone of you had a lions cage available. Someone, I guess a member of this site, has e-mailed her an order, not knowing that the lions cage was not sold at SAKS but at Neiman Markus. So if any one has a lion to sell please contact her aswell.

Brigitte,

Thanks for the reminder, I may have to take her up on that, as I am finding that the sales associates just want thier commission and are not looking out for what is best for the customer.

We all spend lots of money and it really is nice when someone makes you feel special just by giving a little something or letting us know about specials. [Smile]

All the Sak's have the 20% off "Friends & Family" ,16th-19th, but not all the Sak's will admit they have the Strongwater solids
avalilable.
