The Elie Tahari sale kicked off today near Bryant Park. Artsy Anna ventured in to have a look yesterday (Tuesday) and gives us a short assessment of the sale:
Once I made it up the stairs to the second floor saleroom, I waited on a short line to check my coat and bag. After that it was inside to see the offerings.
I own a fair amount of Elie Tahari but this was my first time attending the brand’s sample sale. What surprised me was the amount of first-rate clothing available and the amount of shoppers. I guess the secret is out that this sale is a good one. With the frenzy of this sale mid-morning, I think a lot of people must have been playing hooky from work.
The dresses are beautifully made, versatile, and a pleasure to own starting at $99. The shoe selection ($79 and $99) is organized and easy to shop. Women’s apparel starts at $19 for knits and goes up to $279 for leather jackets and coats, plus $499 for fur/shearling. The small but quality men’s section (shirts & pants at $49, sweaters at $69, woven jackets at $99), also was crowded. Overall, I was impressed and may even go back for another run through this sale.
You’ll find deals on women’s and men’s apparel and accessories at up to 70% off retail. As one reader commented earlier, size 4 or 6 dominates a majority of the merchandise, as does smalls and XL. For a complete look at pricing, check out the list in the photos below.
Where/When: 501 Fifth Ave. (b/w 41st & 42nd St), 2nd Floor. Oct 16-20; Tues-Fri (8:30a-7:30p), Sat (10-5p).
