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!

If you subscribe to the populist mentality and prefer to spend your weekends chillin’ with the OWS crowd, you’ll probably want to skip Dennis Basso’s sample sale. Why? It was “the 1%” written all over it. His show-stopping, luxurious fur coats have made him an acclaimed furrier to high society ladies. From cashmere coats to chic handbags to gorgeous gowns, this sale features mega discounts worth swooning over.
Marilyn Monroe once sang that diamonds were a girl’s best friend. If you’re of the same mind when it comes to sparkly jewels and gemstones, you won’t want to miss Kara Ackerman’s sample sale. Her jewelry — all high quality without screaming “I have more money than you!” — has graced the pages of myriad glossies, including Style and Lucky magazines. Even celebs like Cameron Diaz, Olivia Wilde, Lea Michele and Claire Danes have donned pieces from her amazing line.
Our third Valentine’s Day-approved sample sale is for the ethereal and always feminine clothing of Morgane Le Fay. The socially conscious brand, rooted in New York’s Soho, is synonymous with exquisite craftsmanship and innovative design. In the past, The Vogue City has thoroughly enjoyed this sale. We’ve even scored some write-home-to-mom-about deals!
We’ve given you the dress, the diamonds and the fur. Who needs a date when you have all that?
