12 Days of Dooney

Started 1320321470.033 in Dooney & Bourke | Last reply 1320408880.653 by lavenderjunkie

Hi Ladies,

I hope no one has has posted my question as I haven't seen it.

Being fairly new to the D&B line, I have not experienced the 12 Days of Dooney many people are waiting for. It sounds like some fantastic series of discounts on the D&B site. Can you share with us newbies how it'll work and if we should hold back handbag buying now to wait for those deals since they really are fantastic?

Thanks!

Cat Lover: each day during the 12 days sale, there will be a special on the Dooney website. It's posted at midnight and is good for 1 day or until the quantities sell out (which happens often and early). The special might be a single style, in several colors; or it might be a handbag and accessory combo at a special price; or it might be half off a selection of red and green handbags; or it might be $99 each for a group of handbags; or it might be a group of accessories that are specially priced.

Sometimes someone investigates and posts some info for us early. I'm not on facebook, etc, so I don't see any of the announcements or hints that might appear there, and depend upon this BB for any early info.

Some of the buys on the 12 days are great, others are just ok. It helps to do a little research so you don't get overly excited by something that's available elsewhere for the same or less money. Some years I've bought on 2 or 3 days, some years, nothing.

Often the prices at the Dooney outlets, over time, have been at least as good. And now that Reading and Las Vegas outlets take phone orders and ship, you can get good prices on a number of things throughout the year.

In the summer of 2008, the all leather tear drop Zebra bag was $335. I stood in Belk staring at that bag for 15 minutes. At the time I did not want to spend $335. D+B sold that same exact bag for $167 during their 1st 12 Days of Dooney in 2009. Also, in 2009 all coated cotton wristlets that normally sold for $40 were now $20. Last year in 2010, they did not sell any wristlets for $20.

Last year at Christmas time I purchased the large 'Nina' in navy leather and 2 navy nylon bags for my best friends 2 daughters.

The prices were unbeatable, all were 1/2 price, and I knew both daughters were having a very difficult time last year with their personal lives. Everyone was very pleased.

I'm looking forward to this years batch of bargains.

CatLover, the best deal I ever got on the 12 Days of Dooney was this watch:

http://www.dooney.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpSctDspRte.jsp?section=23110

I think it was two years ago, they had a selection of them for (I think) $50 each--they sold out by early morning, but I was able to snag this one as a gift. It's beautiful IRL.

Last year, I was away for a week and missed most of the 12 Day specials, so I am anxious to see what's in store for this year.

Does anyone know when this "12 days of Christmas" sale starts?

It sounds like a fantastic sale!{#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

Thanks for letting me know. I'll certainly watch out for it. It sounds like your ladies try to sign on around midnight to get the best deals.

I wasn't overly impressed with it last year. IMO, most of the sales were only certain colors in any given style. Any one I was interested in only had the spring/summer colors for sale.

Last year was my first year with the 12 Days of Dooney. I didn't get anything from the sale. While there were some great deals to be had, for me, there were no "WOW... I MUST HAVE..!!! bags.

But it was a lot of fun!!! and boy did those 12 days go by FAST

There weren't too many deals last year that appealed to me. However, I still regret not ordering the FVL Med. Lucy in t'moro for $179.

The 12 DoD is on the Dooney website, not QVC.

I've never found a deal on a bag I wanted on 12 DoD either.

Bottom line: the 12 DoD can have some great buys, but not everything is a great buy. It's fun, and there is a lot of excitement to see what is being offered before it sells out. The web site often melts down at midnight when the put the new days info up. But we are lucky to have other sale opportunities thru out the year, from Dooney, at the outlets, and other store sales. And sometimes those have better prices or choices. This is all good.... the more choices, the better.
