2 April 2016

This week we’ve got an all star lineup of three female brands, plus another don’t miss sample sale featuring outerwear and accessories from Italian designer Loro Piana. The women designers being showcased this week include Rachel Zoe, who’s got spring merch for you, Nanette Lepore, and the two designers who make up Marchesa.

Marchesa Sample & Stock Sale

Marchesa Sample & Stock Sale

Oh Marchesa, how we sing thy praises! The brand — run by two women who seriously know how to dress other women and make them look good — will run their sale for two days only this April 4 and 5. This one’s hosted by Shelly and Renee Productions and promises some impressive discounts on both samples and stock.

WHEN: 4/4 – 4/5; M-Tue (10-6)
WHERE: 33 East 33rd Street, 12th Floor, between Madison & Park Avenue, New York, NY.

Nanette Lepore Spring Sample Sale

The sweet designs of Nanette Lepore can be yours for a fraction of the normal retail price thanks to the designer’s spring sample sale. This one features both women’s apparel and accessories. We recommend it for anyone who’s planning a beach-side vacation anytime in the next six months, and for those who like to add a bit of color to any sidewalk they walk upon.

WHEN: 4/6 – 4/8; W-F (9-7)
WHERE: 225 West 35th Street, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, 17th Floor, New York, NY.

Rachel Zoe Sample Sale

Everything is coming up springy at the Rachel Zoe Sample Sale , which takes place at Clothingline. The sale runs from April 10 through 13, so we’re giving you a head’s up so you can plan accordingly. Here you’ll find women’s warm-weather apparel at a discount price, so if you’re still in need of a spring and summer wardrobe, this is the place to go.

WHEN: 4/10 – 4/13; Sun (11-5), M-Tue (11-7)
WHERE: Clothingline. 261 West 36th Street, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, 2nd floor, New York, NY 10018.

Loro Piana Sample Sale

Here’s another one we’re giving you a bit of a heads up for. The Loro Piana Sample Sale takes place April 10 through 14 and features apparel and accessories for both men and women. If you want to stock up on any last minute cashmere knitwear or outerwear, definitely drop by. Also up for sale are bolts of cashmere, as well as wool fabrics for suits, jackets and other outerwear.

WHEN: 4/10 – 4/14; Sun-W (9-6:30), Th (9-5)
WHERE: Soiffer Haskin. 317 West 33rd Street, Just west of 8th Avenue, New York, NY. (718) 747-1656, M-F (9-6).

Lastly, we want to throw a little disclaimer out about the Gilt City Spring 2016 Warehouse Sample Sale. The previous two sales were a bit of a disappointment, so if you’re low on time or not sure if this is worth it, feel free to skip and go to something else instead.

26 March 2016

This week it’s all about the glitz and the glamour, the bling and the baubles, the refined and the regal. For starters, we’re recommending you shop Marchesa, queen of dripping elegance, at the brand’s upcoming Sample and Stock Sale. It’s a two-day event that’ll be fun to attend even if you’re not in the market for a fancy gown. We’re also featuring the David Yurman Sample Sale, which features the designer’s exquisite watches and jewelry, and BaubleBar‘s majorly discounted bling at their upcoming five-day sale.

BaubleBar Sample Sale

BaubleBar Sample Sale

Who can resist sparkly baubles, especially when said baubles come from Baublebar, and especially when those baubles are majorly discounted? Get your fix at the upcoming BaubleBar Sample Sale, which boasts some seriously low prices on their gotta-have-it-bling. Prices are marked between $5 and $30, and teasers include their Garland Brooch Collar Necklace for an easy $20 (from $44) and their splashy Organic Wharton Drop Earrings for $15 (from $36).

WHEN: 3/29 – 4/2; Tue-F (10-8), Sat (10-5)
WHERE: 260 Fifth Avenue, between 28 & 29th Streets, NYC NY 10001. 212-725-5400.

David Yurman Sample Sale

If you didn’t get your jewelry fix at Baublebar (or maybe it’ll incite desire to amass more glitzy stuff), then you have to hit the David Yurman Sample Sale, too. This one features the designer’s jewelry and watches at discounted prices, and we predict there will be some nice, giftable finds here. Bonus: 10% of the proceeds from day one will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

WHEN: 3/31 – 4/3; Th (3-8), F-Sat (10-7), Sun (11-5)
WHERE: The Altman Building. 135 West 18th Street, between 6th & 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10011.

Marchesa Stock and Sample Sale

We’re giving you a heads up a little bit in advance for the upcoming Marchesa Sample and Stock Sale because it’s just that important. This sale is being hosted by Shelly and Renee productions and will run April 4 and 5. It features discounted women’s clothing from the brand, so if you’re in need of a gown for any upcoming event, definitely pencil this one into your schedule. Even if you don’t need a dress, it’ll be fun to peruse the racks.

WHEN: 4/4 – 4/5; M-Tue (10-6)
WHERE: 33 East 33rd Street, 12th Floor, between Madison & Park Avenue, New York, NY. 212-920-1211.
