The soft comfy knits (perfect for lounging) by Ella Moss & Splendid were up for grabs this morning at their Garment District showroom. Apparently, there was a line before the sample sale started at 9 this morning. But when I got there 15-minutes after they opened the doors, it was all clear. When you enter the space, you’ll need to check your bag before shopping.
Let’s move onto the merchandise and what you’ll find. There’s plenty of stuff for women, kids and babies here. Not a lot for the guys, just two racks of pants, shirts and tees in size medium and large. Everything is organized by size. For women, there was much more smalls than any other size. That said, I did see a number of medium racks (around eight). In the back of the room, you’ll find one rack of large and x-tra large. There’s so much merchandise (tops, dresses, pants, shorts and swimwear) that it is a bit overwhelming. Staffers tried to keep various styles in the same place. My suggestion is to just find your size and go through the racks for anything that catches your eye.
Pricing is pretty good: everything is $75 or under, includes tanks ($15), tops ($20-$25), pants ($30), skirts ($20-$30), dresses ($30-$40) and so on. Check out the price list for the complete listing. An important note: There are no dressing rooms – just the open space where shoppers were stripping down to try things on. In the back, there’s a mirror for those willing to strip down.
I didn’t find anything for myself… but I did pick up a really cute feminine floral dress for one of my nieces. Speaking of kids, there’s quite a selection (from infant sizes to kids size 10). The children’s racks can be found near the front of the showroom. I saw dresses as well as tops & bottoms (for boys and girls). The kids stuff is $15, except for leggings and bloomers which were tagged at $5. Great deals for kids… and a couple of moms with child in tow were snapping up bargains this morning.
Where/When: 260 W. 39th St. (b/w Seventh and Eighth Aves), 12 floor. July 17-18; Daily (9-6p).
