If you didn't blow your holiday budget at the mall on Black Friday and you're going to take our advice and head out to Pacific Palisades to shop the local merchants, pencil it in for Dec. 4. We're told that's when the last call starts at Elyse Walker's women's clothing and shoe boutique, with a 75% discount on all sale merchandise (on our last visit, Christian Louboutin and Prada were among the shoes priced to walk).
At the same time, next door at the Elyse Walker Men's shop, the already-on-sale merchandise goes to 50-60-70 -- the first item is 50% off, the second is 60% off and the rest of sale purchases are discounted 70%. When we were poking around the sales rack a few weeks ago, among the notable things we spotted were a Rag & Bone dark navy Svedke coat (at a pre-sale price of $688), a Michael Bastian checked blazer with corduroy elbow patches (originally $2,388), a black leather Alexander McQueen puffer jacket ($3,852), and a wide selection of Barker Black shoes, including $250 sneakers and $850 wingtips with toe-cap perforations that form a subtle skull-and-crossbones design ($850).
