Don't Miss This Week: Sample Sale Season is Back
The only good thing about it being the third weekend of August, and that much closer to the end of summer, is that sample sale season is back!! Fairly soon we’ll be breaking out our heavier cardigans and dark wash skinny jeans. We’ll try to pair these with our cheery summer tops, in attempt to attain one last round of wear before packing them up and saying goodbye until next spring. Although we don’t want to face the reality of fall, we’re still preparers by nature and know the best deals and sample sales for fall clothing are just around the corner. So this week we’ll buck up, buy some warm weather threads for next year, and early fall clothing paired with beautiful accessories for the upcoming weeks at the Issey Miyake, Lauren Merkin, Rolando Santana, and Kara Ackerman Sample Sales.
Issey Miyake Sample Sale
Issey Miyake is known for his experimental pleats that result in interesting and one of a kind textures on his blouses, skirts, dresses, and coats. One of the more popular divisions under the Issey Miyake brand is Pleats Please, in addition to Cauliflower and Heat, which will all be on sale Tuesday, August 14th, at the Issey Miyake Sample Sale.
Lauren Merkin Sample Sale
Five words: Bargain boxes starting at $30. Well, six, but doesn’t $30 look good under the moniker Lauren Merkin? Handbags, clutches, and accessories from the talented designer will be on sale for up to 70% off, and as low as $30, at the Lauren Merkin Sample Sale beginning Tuesday on 29th street.
Rolando Santana Private Sale
Even though the brand is three years old, Rolando Santana’s designs are stunning and beautiful. His ready to wear collection, both stock and samples, will be available for up to 50% off come Wednesday, at the Rolando Santana Private Sale in Midtown. RSVP ‘yes’ to [email protected] in order to stay up to date on all of the sale’s details.
Kara Ackerman Jewelry Sample Sale
Decadent designs, both ethereal and timeless, Kara Ackerman’s chandelier earrings, vibrant turquoise rings, and sterling silver bangles will be available at a deep discount during Wednesday’s one day only Kara Ackerman Jewelry Sample Sale. Ackerman’s pieces will act as the perfect statement piece with fall’s warm colored clothing.
Clothing, accessories, clothing, accessories; this week’s sample sale schedule works quite nicely, doesn’t it? Stock up now and enjoy it later, this month’s round of sample sale shopping will not only benefit your wallet, but both your fall and spring ’13 closets!
