blt982:  so far Ive been to two trunk shows (didn’t buy though) and they offered 10% and 15% if you purchased that day.

10-15% is the typical discount for trunk shows.

I always see 10% advertised at the shops near me.

I tried on the same dress at two trunk shows in my area (about 2 weeks apart).

The first the dress was listed for a slightly cheaper price, with $100 discount.

The second they had a slightly higher selling price, but were offering a 15% discount, which worked out to be about $150 cheaper. I think 10-15% is the norm, but sometimes they do a flat dollar amount for every dress.

It was 10% off, for Lazaro. Not just the gowns offered in the trunk show (I think they were mostly new designs), but all the Lazaro gowns in the shop. Unfortunately, my daughter is a busty size 12 and the samples were in the usual, small sample sizes, so it didn’t work out.

I got mine at 10% off, but they threw in free custom length, so I didn’t have to do any alterations at all. 

 

I would say call the salon! I’m sure they’ll tell you!

I believe my discount for buying the dress at a trunk show was 15%. For my gown, it ended up saving my mom almost $700.
