While many of you may be more concerned with much more impactful, shocking news… This will not stop some of you from looking for deals. For those of you in the mood, you might want to check out the 3.1 Phillip Lim sample sale which opens to the public on Wednesday.

Sale organizers opened the doors in the morning of Election Day… when we popped in after voting.

There’s merchandise (both stock and actual samples) for both men and women. Let’s first get to this designer’s highly sought after accessories. There were plenty of options, including the Pashli satchels (large $300, small $250 and mini $200). The 31 Hour bag, Bianca and Soleil are $200. Other bags and clutches were $150.  And cosmetic bags $95.

Among the best deals can be downstairs: all footwear tagged at $100, regardless of style. That includes boots. Most of the offerings were for women, a few styles on a table for men. The only downside is the limited selection and sizing. But worth having a look if you stop into this sale.

On the main floor is the apparel, more for women than men. Pricing for the main collection starts at $50 for T-shirts and tops out to $500 for leather jackets. In between, women’s tops/shirts are $120/$150; sweaters and cardigans are $125/$200 and dresses are $175 for basics and $450 for evening gowns.

Initials are much cheaper with bras/panties at $30 and tops/bottoms at $50. The sale ends on Friday. We’re told they will be restocking some items.
