Clothingline opened its doors a day early for the Tory Burch sale. The line outside the space on Monday evening stretched down West 36th Street. While the line was long, it did move quickly and we were all inside before we knew it.
As for the deals, there was plenty of spring/summer merchandise, including the designer’s signature tunics ($115) and dresses ($145) in bright colors – plain, sequined and embroidered. Also on offer are skirts ($75), pants ($85), tops ($85 and $95), blazers/coats ($195). I even spotted a few winter puffers! All the leather merch is $250. A navy cropped motorcycle-style jacket caught my eye. It also came in a caramel color in all sizes. The clothing is all organized by size on racks throughout the room.
In my opinion, the selection of footwear was not at all enticing. I wasn’t alone. I spoke with a few other shoppers who agreed. Don’t expect to find a wide selection of flats ($99). There were only several styles left in small sizes. I also spotted a few strappy heels and so-so wedges ($150), plus sneakers ($50). Too bad since many of the shoppers here tonight were clearly hoping to score on the shoes. I overheard a number of ladies voice their disappointment. Apparently, the sales organizers will be restocking throughout the week, but who knows what kind of footwear (if any) they’ll bring out.
Now onto the handbags… there were lots in all sorts of sizes on display as you walked into the space. Medium leather bags and totes were priced at around $225/$250, small cross-bodies were $150, quilted large totes were $175, small quilted messengers were $75 and canvas totes are $125. Sale runs through Saturday. I over heard a number of women saying they’d try their luck at the end of the week, hoping for further reductions.
Where/When: 261 W. 36th St (b/w 7th & 8th Aves), 2nd Floor. June 15 to 18, Wed-Fri (11-7p), Sat (11-4p).
