Neiman's closing sale

Neiman Marcus will finally shut down its lone Twin Cities store at the end of the month. Friday it kicks off its Good Buy Farewell Sale, where you can expect discounts of around 70 percent on women's and men's contemporary and designer apparel, including the less-than-successful Target + Neiman Marcus collaboration, plus some shoes and handbags. If you're looking for deals on cosmetics or jewelry, you're out of luck -- those departments have already closed. (505 Nicollet Mall, Mpls. 612-339-2600.)

Jason Wu at Nordstrom

After a successful Target collaboration a year ago, Jason Wu again tests the discount realm with Miss Wu, a new diffusion line exclusively for Nordstrom. The spring collection features Wu's signature stripes and playful prints in a range of flirty skirts, lightweight knits and feminine dresses. Ranging from $195 to $1,395, the 40-piece line is decidedly higher-end than his Target collection.
