Don't Miss Sample Sales From Helmut Lang, James Jeans, Current/Elliott, Nautica, and Ralph Lauren
According to the books it’s not “officially summer” until June 21st. However according to fashion’s rules we have made our way into warm weather clothing thanks to Memorial Day Weekend’s faux summer kickoff. Given this fact it’s time to stock up on cute sandals, summer shorts, lightweight denim, bright tops and bold accessories. This week, look no further than the sample sale line up to get your shop on thanks to stellar sales from Helmut Lang, James Jeans, Current/Elliott, Nautica, and Ralph Lauren. We all know that getting to the sale on the first day is well worth it, but don’t forget to check back in during the sale’s final day as more often than not, prices are greatly reduced by the last day in order to eliminate stock. Don’t worry, we’ll gladly take it off your hands!
SAMPLE SALE ALERT: ORANGE
Helmut Lang Sample Sale
Helmut Lang beats other designers to the punch by being the first in the line up of great sample sales this week. Beginning Sunday at 261 West 36th Street, Helmut Lang serves us a brunch full of merchandise including dresses for $119, blazers for $199, and leather for $399. Mostly spring stock will be on hand, so be prepared to grab some edgy-wear perfectly suited for evening nights out on the town. During the Theory/Helmut Lang sample sale this past January, pants were discovered for as low as $32 by week’s end.
Ralph Lauren Sample Sale
When you think Hamptons summer getaways and polo matches, you think Ralph Lauren. Prepare to lug suitcases full of Ralph Lauren apparel on the Hampton Jitney this year thanks to Monday’s unveiling of the Ralph Lauren Sample Sale at Soiffer Haskin. The sale promises cruise, spring, and summer collection by the luxury brand. Last June’s Ralph Lauren summer sample sale featured continuous markdowns throughout the week, tapping out at up to 90% off retail prices. As claimed by shoppers, the best deals were the accessories, with heels as low as $125 and wallets for $175.
Denim Day Featuring James Jeans, Joie, Current/Elliott, and Equipment
This week, I officially deem Tuesday, Denim Day. From henceforth, your sole mission Tuesday will be to unearth your perfect pair of jeans and shorts for summer. The first stop on the roster will be the James Jeans Sample Sale in SoHo where skinny jeans will be discounted from $180 to $80, with a special offer of $150 for two pairs. Shorts will be marked down to $60 and $100 will land you two pairs.
If you didn’t complete your mission at the James Jeans Sample Sale, head uptown to the Joie, Current/Elliott, and Equipment Sample Sale for 50-75% off not only denim, but sweaters, silk tops, tees, and outerwear. There’s nothing better than a pair of comfortable Current/Elliott jeans in the summer, so be sure to get their before the lunch time rush.
Nautica and Kipling Sample Sale
Apart from Ralph Lauren, Nautica is of course another summer staple. Prepare for your maritime adventures aboard that luxurious yacht with deep discounts at the Nautica and Kipling Sample Sale at the Metropolitan Pavilion beginning Tuesday. Brands on hand will include Nautica Sportswear, Nautica Jeans Co., Nautica Sleepwear, Watches, and Kipling. Last year was an alleged mob scene, so plan accordingly in order to score $12 button downs.
