This week, there are two Theory and Theyskens’ Theory sample sale taking place at different locations. As we mentioned before, one at Chelsea Market and the other at Clothingline in the Garment District. We have reviews of each sale from two of our readers…
Let’s start with the sale taking place at Clothingline, which kicked off today. Our tipster (Christina) has been going there for years and tells us that she has previously found “tons of great items.” However, she tells us this sale was “seriously disappointing.”
And adds: “…Usually the best part of the sale is the large selection of dresses, but this year the long racks of dresses that usually take up the middle of the space were gone. There were just circular racks of pants and jackets throughout the store and there were racks of blouses, shorts, and a few skirts along the perimeter. If you are looking for blouses or shorts, it’s an okay selection. There are also a few suits, but not the selection that there usually is. Plus, there really wasn’t much leather.” Christina also tells us that there were also shoes, including Theory pointy flats and Theyskens heels. In addition, she managed to snag a photo of the price lists for both brands.
As for the sale in Chelsea… our other tipster got there at lunchtime on Tuesday when it was apparently “a madhouse full of women looking for bargains.” She reports seeing “…tons of shorts, shirts and dresses. Prices ranged from $59-$399. All of the bags were around $150. The leather pants were $299 (available in a cognac color). Theyskens’ Theory shoes are all prices at $129.”
Staff told her that they will be replenishing. From what we can tell, pricing appears to be similar. Since we didn’t go to either sale, we’re not sure how the merchandise compares at both location. However, it does look like lots of overstock at both places. Both sales end this Sunday.
