Reductions at MONTBLANC Sample Sale

Today (Wednesday) is the last day of the Montblanc sample sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. Yesterday, they began offering additional reductions. Most items are now an additional 20% off the sale, including the pens (what’s left of them). By Tuesday, the selection had thinned out. No more ball points, just a few styles of fountain pens. The cheapest that we spotted was at $42[...]

Loeffler Randall Sample Sale Has Plenty of Metallics and More

We have coverage of yet another sale taking place this week in Soho... Loeffler Randall. One of our contributors, Christina, was there first thing this morning. Here's her take: "This was by far the chillest Loeffler Randall sample sale I have ever been to, and I have been to a lot!  At about 9:30 a.m., there were only 20-30 women in line.  The line moved fast.  I [...]

A Limited Selection at Marc Jacobs Sample Sale

The Marc Jacobs sample sale opens to the public tomorrow. We stopped into Tuesday’s preview. Even before we can get this report out, the readers have already weighed in. We have to agree with the commenters. Basically, there a lot that's not at this sale. They DON’T have  beauty, shoes and very little (literally a handful of pieces) of Marc Jacobs Collection for wo[...]
