Last Call by Neiman Marcus is always first on our shopping list when we want gorgeous designer goods. Or, maybe you're like our friend Cassie MacGregor who always makes it the last stop for visiting friends.
"They always want to go on their way to the airport; I swear it's the only place they insist on going the whole trip!," MacGregor said of her frequent visits to the store's Grapevine Mills location.
On sale now, expect to find consistent Neiman Marcus brands such as Vince, Marc Jacobs, Temperley, Fendi, and Oscar de la Renta as well as newer labels like G.E.T, Romeo and Juilet, and Dylan George. Average discounts can range from 40 to 80 percent off; so, pay attention to the price tags to make sure you're getting the markdown you're after.
Our favorites on racks now include a ruffled, one-shoulder Valentino dress in a nude, grey color for $1,011 (a 65 percent discount); a pink, body-skimming Zac Posen dress for $346, and printed tops from Patterson J. Kincaid for only $62.
A final hint: the Last Call store at Grapvine Mills is conveniently located next to the local Horchow Finale. It's not often you can dress up yourself and your home for a great price in one place. Hurry, the best pieces won't last long in either shop.
