Online all I'm seeing is still the 50% discount, but at one of the local brick & mortar stores, it was up to 75% as of yesterday. And the signs were big, nicely-printed signs that look they would've been nationally distributed, not just handwritten "local" signage...

There was fine print. Apparently yellow-tagged items were priced as marked, but everything else was 75% off "existing" prices, which at least in one case was already 50% off the original price. I already have more "general" Xmas lights than I know what to do with, so I didn't buy much, but I did get a couple of strings of LED "rope lights" for $2.49, or 87.5% off their original $20 price... Lowe's being Lowe's, it looks like the specific lights I bought have already been removed from the site as "no longer available for sale at Lowe's", though I did see several other similar off-/no-name brands at similar prices, at different stores. But fwiw, the specific SKU I bought is "Holiday Living Clear Rope Light" (18', warm white), item # 0165167. I didn't buy any of those, but they also had cool white, and red, and multicolored strings of the same lights...

I will mention that the cashier had to manually key in the discount after checking with a manager, so I guess there's a chance someone was mistaken and the prices were "really" supposed to be 75% off the original price, but otoh, it was a manager who cleared it, not just another cashier or customer service clerk, so...
