Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Minnesota

I am late on giving 60 days notice to my Landlord of intent to move out. My lease ends June 30th, 2013 which puts my last day to give notice April 30th, 2013. So, as of today I am 13 days late. They gave me a new lease to sign and accompanying letter, dated February 22nd, 2013. The letter says that as per a certain clause in my current lease, that if I do not give notice 60 days prior to my lease end, that it will auto renew for 1 year. It was to my understanding that a landlord had to give notice of this auto renew clause no less than 15 days and no more than 30 days prior to the date I am supposed to give notice. This letter is approximately 70 days before I am even supposed to give notice. Then the clause the letter points to in my lease says nothing about automatic renewal. It says that I have to be out by noon on the day the lease ends. So, if I give late notice am I able to not come under repercussions due to their errors?
