A huge turnout for the start of the Dolce & Gabbana sample sale at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. Larry Label Whore stood in line and took a few snapshots which he sent to us. After he realized the discounts weren’t worth the long wait, he didn’t stick around…
Discounted Dolce & Gabbana from 50% to 80% off Retail
“It’s that time of year again. As I’ve previously reported, the Dolce & Gabbana sample sale is my favorite of all time. Last year, discounts were up to 90% off. I managed to get belts, shoes, and shirts for as low as $25. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to see what was on offer this year so I went there this morning to check it out.
I arrived to a long line that was down 18th Street, almost to 6th avenue. It looked to be at least a 2-hour wait. After a bit, I decided to ask a couple of people just leaving the sale about the discounts and merch. They told me that the mark downs went up to 80% off. Not enough of a savings for me!
Just like previous years, the amount of discount correlated to the year of the items on sale:
- 80% off for pieces from 2009
- 70% off of 2010
- 60% off of 2011
- 50% off of 2012
Some shoppers reported there was a lot more stuff for men than women. After this news, I decided to wait until later in the week when I’m hoping the discount will be better…” -Larry Label Whore
Our suggestion is to wait… unless you want to stand in line. If you do make it inside before we do, let us know what you found.
