    The Jenni has been around for a few years so must be popular if they keep producing it. I've never owned one or seen one up close but it does seem to be one of the more roomy and practical LG bags. Be sure you like the particular leather on the red one in the sale as I know some were less keen on the crosshatched pattern. For me, a Lulu bag means smooth, patent or quilted leather so I wasn't keen at first either but earlier this year I bought a Ted Baker bag in crosshatched leather and I absolutely love it. Depends what your thing is. There's bound to be someone on here that knows the Jenni well.

    I have a Jenny and it's a very handy bag, it's not too big for the crook of the arm or to carry like a shopper, and does fit over your shoulder (although if you're a regular carrier of a bag over your shoulder the straps may be a little short as it has quite a wide base so it does make your elbow sit quiet a way away from your body...if that makes sense! So I don't find it comfortable over my arm for longer periods.)

    I have a couple of patent Jennys, quite a big bag for me, but I like it and it has worn so well, still looks like new although it has had quite a few outings, I am very tempted with the red Kate bag, but am hoping it is reduced further

    I'm also holding out for further reductions, it won't be long after Boxing Day that they reduce the prices and add in some more styles.

    Decisions, decisions! Still have my eye on that red Jenni (or the black which is about 50 more) but the prices don't seem to have moved since the opening post. Buy or wait? What do you think?

    It's a tricky one LATI, there's always further reductions, and then final reductions. But, they've usually started sooner than this before if I remember rightly.

    It's risky business hanging on with her sales if there's a bag you really want. Depends how you are at holding your nerve! I've saved a quite a bit more money a few items in her sales by sitting it out til the end! Fraught with danger though!!

    If you really really want the bag them you could buy it now and not use it until the sale is over (in case you return it) and then if it drops in price again buy it again at the reduced price and send the higher priced one back under 14 day DSR or the whatever the returns time limit for LG.

    Well I'm not in NEED of a bag but I plan on semi retirement later this year so this is probably the last chance I can justify spending big money on a bag!

    I have bought expensive bags and rarely use them but I'm tempted by LG in a sale.

    I think I'll set a cut off date and if still in stock will buy and then ignore all posts or peeks to see if it went lower and if I miss out well it won't be life changing.

    Last year, the sale started around Boxing Day if I'm right. I bought the bag I was after on 13 Jan when it had been further reduced (and I am pretty sure it was the very day it was reduced) so about 18 days after the start of the sale. That's coming up now as this year's sale started a week before Xmas. Can you hold your nerve though?

    In the summer 2015 sale, the first reductions were two weeks to the day after the start and a week after that, what few bags remained were reduced a bit further. The thing is, will the bag you like sell out first? Also, it won't necessarily follow the same pattern.

    I am embarrassed about my encyclopaedic knowledge of bag sales!

    Everyone needs to know a lot about something and the ins and outs of a LG is not necessarily a bad thing

    I'll take that, LATI, because I get a lot of pleasure from my Lulu bags. It was this forum that got me into them actually. I've yet to buy one from QVC though because the LG sales are so good.
