**I will be UPDATING this often so bookmark this page**
-The Bag Event will run from March 10-14, 2015.
-Barneys is already pre-selling- this is the best way to reserve the gift bag and step-up gifts for you.
-If you use your Barneys New York credit card during the pre-sale you can take advantage of Double Points (Double Points is March 2-8).
-The minimum purchase to get the gift bag is $200.00 (this is based upon total pre-tax purchases in the cosmetics & fragrance department- not limited to a single counter or line). If you spend $200.00 before tax from the store shipping is free (US only. Shipping fees apply to international addresses).
-You can order online to get the bag, but the Step-Up Gifts will likely differ. I will bring you that information as soon as it is provided to me.
ONE BAG PER CUSTOMER & WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! CANNOT BE COMBINED WITH ANY OTHER OFFER.
-Step-up gifts are line specific gifts beyond the gift bag. For instance, if you spend a certain amount of money with a particular line that is participating, then they will give you an additional gift with purchase from their line. There is nearly always a minimum purchase price, and they often give full-sized products- making it all the more tempting. You will still get the Gift Bag even if you spend enough in a particular line to qualify for their step up gift.
Q: Is the $200.00 minimum for the gift bag before or after tax?
A: It is a pre-tax minimum.
Q: Is it really that important that I pre-purchase what I want?
A: It certainly is a good idea. Things sell out quickly during this event, and they quite often run out of the really hot step-up gifts (sometimes before the sale even officially begins).
Q: Will there be any free international shipping for this event?
A: I was told that free shipping is US only if you spend $200.00 pretax.
Q: If you could give me one piece of advice about the Bag Event, what would it be?
A: Set a realistic budget that you can live with and afford, and stick to it! The Bag Event happens twice a year-- you can do it again! Make a list of what you want and do your best to stick to it-- otherwise it can become a very very expensive event, trust me.
Q: Is there an advantage to ordering from a store over the phone rather than online (since I don't have a store near me)?
A: That depends, but there can be. Here's why: a) First of all, if they sell out of what you want online it may take some time for you to receive notification since they sell so much during these events. This can sometimes mean that you find out after the Bag Event ends, and thus you miss out on the event altogether, b) Sales associates often add in other samples, and often include their business cards so that you can establish a relationship with them (and then they call you to alert you of specials, pull step-up gifts for you etc.). Trust me, this makes all of the difference in the world, and c) You can be eligible for free shipping with in-store over the phone purchases (provided that you make the $200.00 shipping minimum to a US address). HOWEVER, the online Love Yourself Event features different (and FABULOUS) line specific Step-Up gifts, and the convenience of shopping online cannot be sufficiently underscored. The best way to optimize your online shopping experience is to order sooner rather than later so that you get what you want before things begin to sell out. This is an AMAZING event and so many people shop the event in-store and online that things can sell out very fast!
These Step-Up Gifts are those currently available at the Beverly Hills location at (310) 276-4400 Ext. 5613 (not online) and at The NYC Madison Avenue location (212) 833-2004 and (212) 833-2005

I have had several requests about line specific step-up gifts from my beloved readers- so here are a few of them (click on name brand to direct you to their page on the Barneys website). If it is currently left blank that means that I am awaiting information about what the Step-Up Gifts will be, or whether they are having any.
PLEASE NOTE: If you see things that you want you should be aware that Barneys is already pre-selling, and that they may substitute gifts as they begin to sell out. Remember that things sell out very quickly because the LOVE YOURSELF BAG EVENT is a very popular (and fantastic) time to shop. In other words, don't wait too long if you plan to shop the event. Call your local Barneys to find out what Step-Up Gifts they are offering, or call the Beverly Hills or Madison Avenue numbers that I provided to see if they still have what is listed below. If your plan is to shop online, then shop early to get what you want before things begin selling out on the Barneys website.

I will be updating this post-- so bookmark it and check it frequently for any updates, or added specials!!
I would not suggest waiting until the last minute to pre-order, because some things really sell quickly during the event-- it's a good idea to call the counters that you are interested in to reserve your bag and all of the goodies that you want to buy.
Until then, if you are planning to partake- might I suggest that you set a realistic budget, check your stash, and make a list. I tend to stalk the Barneys website to help me make my list-- so that might work for you as well.
If you have any questions, post them in the comments section below, and I will try to get an answer for you. This is preferable to emailing me since I invariably am asked the same questions-- so this way everyone gets the answers.
If you want to place an order in store, feel free to call the Beverly Hills Location (310) 276-4400 Ext. 5613 or the NYC Madison Avenue location (212) 833-2004 and (212) 833-2005.
Are you planning on partaking? If so, what are you thinking of getting?
