We can hear it in the distance: Neiman's First Call Sale--one of our favorite sales of the year. We hear the store yelling, "Alice & Olivia! Diane von Furstenberg! Christian Louboutin..." And if you walk into 737 N Michigan Avenue, we're sure you'll hear the call too. First Call lowers prices by at least 40%, and it also puts the biggest smile on our faces. Nov. 13 is when the (First) Call will stop ringing, so plug it into your sked NOW. [Racked Inbox]
