Last week I attended a Dillard’s holiday blogger event at Fashion Show and discovered something that blew my frickin’ mind!
Did you know that Dillard’s now sells luxury designer resale bags? I’m talking La-La-LUXURY! Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Fendi, etc!
What the What!
Dillard’s has partnered with online luxury consignment brand What Goes Around Comes Around to create a luxury “store within a store” experience.
Set up in a secret location within Dillard’s behind locked doors, is a room draped in pre-owned designer bags, luggage, wallets and sunglasses from Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, and Yves Saint Laurent. I admit, when I stepped inside the “vault” I was speechless.
These pre-owned designer bags each have a card of authenticity that includes the brand name, style, serial code, and even the year it was produced.
What I really love about this new secret shopping is that you have the opportunity to actually touch and feel vintage handbags from an online store, which is a huge PLUS because you know exactly what you are getting! Dillard’s has created a niche offering that other department stores don’t have, which makes them stand out and shows that they’re starting to be more creative in appealing to customers who are depending more and more on e-commerce. It’s e-commerce you can get your hand’s on in person before you buy! A win-win for the retailer and for us.
Each Dillard’s store receives different shipments, so if you don’t see one of the following brands in your store, ask a sales associate or manager if there are options available: Fendi, Prada, Louis Vuitton, YSL, Dior, Chloé, Céline, and Hermès. They even have a book that you can pre-order from and a service that will help you find a specific bag you may have been looking for! Hello 1970’s Gucci Bamboo Handle Bag!
Note that all sales on these bags are final.
Stop in and shop the vault for yourself at Dillard’s at Fashion Show- head to the handbags section and ask an associate to escort you to the Vintage Designer Room.
If you aren’t in Vegas don’t worry- many Dillard’s locations across the country are offering Vintage Designer- just ask an associate.
