Don't Miss Sample Sales From Alice + Olivia, Tory Burch, Nanette Lepore and Ritual Vintage
June has made its way well into our schedule, but not yet into our hearts. The strange hot and cold, wet and dry weather we have been enduring can drive the average gal insane. (Especially those who have hair that is driven equally as crazy by this noncommittal forecast, much like myself.) Treat yourself to a pick-me-up this week as you wait patiently for blue skies and strong rays thanks to a stellar line up of sample sales from Nanette Lepore, Ritual Vintage, Tory Burch, and Alice + Olivia.
SAMPLE SALE ALERT: ORANGE
Alice + Olivia Sample Sale
Attention lovers of the cutest dresses on the block: the Alice + Olivia Sample Sale is back! Up to 70% off incredible summer dresses for the daytime and evening, as well as tops, skirts, denim and more. But wait, here is where the tricky part comes in – this sale will happen in two locations this year, 260 Fifth Avenue as well as 72 Greene Street. Although this sounds stressful, two sale spots can be a positive thing. Just think, smaller crowds at each location, the possibility of double the A + O selection, and the opportunity to head to the 2nd location in the event the 1st doesn’t carry your size in your favorite dress. Last year, prices were marked as $79 for pants, skirts and tops, $199 for dresses and true samples for $29-$99.
Tory Burch Sample Sale
After you purchase your favorite summer dress you’re going to need the perfect pair of designer shoes to pair with it. Tuesday brings us the lusted after Tory Burch Sample Sale happening at 261 West 36th Street. Be sure to grab a latte and croissant and get there early as last time around lines wrapped around the block. Last December we found ballet flats for $150, driving shoes for $125, wedges for $165 and booties for $200. Although known for her shoes, be sure not to pass up Tory Burch’s fabulous apparel collection. The last sale brought skirts for $85, blouses for $95 and cardigans for $95.
Nanette Lepore Sample Sale
Bought too many shoes at the Tory Burch sale? Do not fret my friends I have just the remedy! Head on over to the Nanette Lepore Sample Sale, which will be going on only a block away, in order to land additional outfits to pair with your pumps. Nanette Lepore’s Spring 2013 swimwear will be on hand in addition for tops from $95 to $125, dresses from $145 to $175, pants for $125 and skirts and shorts for $95. During Lepore’s March Sample Sale shoppers scored shoes for $30, for those of you who were not fans of Burch’s selection.
Ritual Vintage Sample Sale
There’s nothing better than a dash of vintage to go along with your new designer outfit. It adds flair and personality, not to mention style and originality. End your sample sale week with the Ritual Vintage Archive Sale to find a wide range of vintage pieces priced between $10 and $50, including high-end options from YSL, Ungaro and Bill Blass. At past sales there were vintage pieces from the 1880s through the 1980’s.
Good luck out there shoppers!
