Yes, Neiman Marcus


For years I disparagingly referred to the high-end department store as "Needless Mark-up."

Two times I tentatively wandered into the Scottsdale outpost. I bought one thing — Bobbi Brown lipgloss.

But, now I owe Neiman Marcus a consumer mea culpa. While all these other fancy stores were trying to get my business this holiday season with special offers, only Neiman Marcus consistently offered free shipping and super-duper discounts. Nordstrom never did that. Neither did Bloomie's. Saks did offer free shipping, but its prices are so high that it didn't matter much.

So, I'm a convert to neimanmarcus.com. And, I'm happily awaiting this Patterson J. Kincaid micromodal tank (super soft!!!), which was a whopping 75-percent off. Yay me. Go, Neiman.

if you sign up for the NM email blasts, they have fire sales. They had a 50 percent of Marc Jacobs, D&G sale in November, and I snagged a new purse. And it's not old stock, it was the fall season stuff!

Yup, I get those e-mail blasts. Prices are good on a lot of stuff, but I'm always amazed when it's still a crazy high-ticket item — more than $1,000 — and people SNAP IT UP. Recession? What recession?
