You ready for some good news? DeMellier, a.k.a. designer Mireia Llusia-Lindh’s handbag line that’s loved by Meghan Markle and legions of fashionable people alike, is taking 20 percent off its entire site for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And when I say entire site, I can also specifically attest that the swoon-worthy forest green top-handle bag Meghan sported when she and Prince Harry visited Cardiff back in 2018 is finally on sale.
At 20 percent off, that means you can grab Meghan’s Mini Venice bag for just $316—and don’t we just love the sound of savings? All you have to do to score this very rare, hardly-ever-seen deal is head to demellierlondon.com and enter promo code “BF20” at checkout. Easy enough, right?
Handcrafted by artisans using sustainably-sourced materials from Spain and Italy, Meghan’s Mini Venice bag offers fair amount to covet. For me, the bag’s appeal boils down to its classic shape, go-anywhere versatility, and the fact that it actually closes properly. (No offense, bucket bags.)
Meghan is hardly DeMellier’s only royal fan, as Duchess Camilla herself has been spotted carrying the exact same style on numerous occasions. Pippa Middleton and Princess Beatrice have also been photographed carrying looks from earlier seasons over the years.
Of course, it goes without saying that DeMellier’s royal-backed styles are hardly the only pieces to covet. There are also a bunch of other day-to-night, go-everywhere designs. I, for one, can’t stop thinking about the beautifully simple Lisbon bag.
Sure, spending over $300 on a bag can be considered a splurge, but it’s important to note that the royalty-approved DeMellier brand is well worth it. Also, a bonus: For every bag purchased, the brand “funds vaccines and treatments aimed to save the life of a child in need” All the more reason to add a DeMellier bag to your collection.
Considering how real the Meghan Markle effect is, now is a wise (not to mention budget-friendly) time to scoop up the duchess’ Mini Venice bag before it inevitably sells out. Again.
