By the time you read this the handbags might be gone at Loeffler Randall sample sale. You should go anyway.
Loeffler Randall, womens shoe and accessories line, is just ending day 1 of their spring sample sale. The line was long but not endless, as women of all walks of life gathered to get access to the half price (or more!) offerings.
There were still many handbags today, though at $120 or less, the staff expects them to clear out today. This sale was not large, but was incredibly well stocked, with some backstock allowing you to still visit tomorrow if you want to score.
Loeffler Randall had a few surprises for those loyal enough to wait in line: They were including one of a kind samples from their factory in Brazil, and they were including the beautiful floral and fruit patterns from THIS SEASON! But that’s not the whole story, Signs bearing hilarious Mean girls quotes told us that they were offering an extra $25 off any floral shoe purchase! What better setup to get on trend and this season specific designs and at $100 rather than $395, you cannot go wrong.
Located at 525 Broadway in Soho, Loeffler Randall’s sample sale was rife with fashionista’s and power PR ladies on their lunch break, a sure indicator of both quality deals and quality styles. The styles ranged from very simple blue suede pumps, to stacked espadrille sneakers with bold citrus prints. There was turquoise snake skin, bold color blocked sandals, tan and beach colored open toe booties, and an adorable seemingly owner-less pomeranian trying to step into all of our photos. I don’t think they had his size.
The handbags are a really special score, worth crossing your fingers and hopping on line early tomorrow. Ranging from full bodied stiff construction envelope bags in basic colors and boisterous snakeskin pairings to buttery soft black fringed draping totes, you can really find your next mayjah bag here if you are willing to try. Evening clutches and wallets were priced around $100 and were very very tastefully done, with trapunto black leather and woven plastic Ikat. Envelope style wallets were deeply discounted as well, it seems that if you don’t buy a wallet at a sample sale, you most likely paid far too much!
If you have anxiety problems, you may want to skip this one, as you will be trying things on in a crowded and hectic environment, back to back with 10 other ladies on the one couch. If this isn’t a problem for you, I bet your closet is one of the most well stocked in the land. Being brave gets us far, as does patience, two requisite traits for a battle hardened shopper. If you have it in you, this isn’t the cheapest or most spacious sale, but has some very very trendy shoes that are better made than all of the cheapie versions of the same style.
