lemlem coverups and tops

Amazing deals and finds at the HATCh Showroom sample sale, which kicks off in Soho today. What’s even better is that you’ll be shopping for a good cause. All the proceeds from this sale will go to charity – benefiting the Nicaragua Clean Water Project.

The preview for friends and family was held yesterday. The merchandise is well laid out inside a large airy space. The clothing hung on racks separated and labeled by designer. Accessories (jewelry) are displayed on a table in the middle of the room.

Pricing is incredible! They’ve marked everything down at 85-90% off retail. From what I saw, most of the offerings were $50 and under.

I found items from a real mix of brands (from well-known to little-known labels). Near the front of the space were Ethiopian made hand-woven cotton coverups, dresses and tops from Lemlem at $40.

A bit further down were two racks of separates from James Perse ($25-$50). There were lots of cotton tees, tops, dresses in whites and neutrals. Next to that were jeans by rag & bone ($50, mostly size 26), Paper denim and J Brand.

Also available were silk pieces from NYC-based Parker which offered great printed pants for $35 (originally $198) and dresses at $50 (Originally $286). Items from Mason by Michelle Mason – tops at $40 and dresses at $60.

Amazing deals from Australian-label Banjo and Matilda where I spotted cashmere sweaters at $40.

A rack of vintage designer pieces was in the back. Felt hats by Albertus Swanepoel were going for $35 (originally $375).

As for jewelry, there were great bracelets, necklaces and earrings from Giles and Brother ($10-$40) and St. Kilda near the cash register.

The staff were all very friendly and willing to help customers. There wasn’t a proper dressing room so customers were trying things on in the back where a mirror was set up.

As mentioned above, 100% of the sales will go to charity – Waves for Water which will head off to Nicaragua next month to deliver hundreds of water filters to communities in need there.

444 Broadway, 4th Floor, New York; July 10-11 (Noon to 8pm).
