They're pushy, they're fierce, they're stylish.

They're Barneys Warehouse Sale regulars, and they're not afraid to take off their oversized YSL sunglasses and jump you for the last Phillip Lim pencil skirt.

The Barneys Warehouse Sale is a biannual event that New York's savviest shoppers have been waiting for since February, and it's back this Thursday, Aug. 25.

It's not for the faint of heart, but do it right and you could come out with some really great designer merchandise at 50 to 75 percent off retail prices.

The sale at 255 W. 17th St. will go through Monday, Sept. 5.

Get there early for the highest quality finds, but stop by again at the end if you can to check for items that may have arrived later (including leftovers from the Los Angeles sale) and bigger markdowns.

If you're a thoughtful shopper who likes to take your time and think over each purchase, this may not be for you, although returns with receipts are accepted.

But if scoring a Lanvin wrap dress in your size for half the price is something you dream about, put on your least embarrassing undergarments (there are no dressing rooms) and get in line.
