Sigerson Morrison is Almost Cleaned Out on First Day of Sale

The pictures say it all... By the end of the day yesterday, slim pickings at the Sigerson Morrison warehouse sale in Chelsea.  One sales associate told me that the first day of the sale was like a "whirlwind," adding that "about 12-hundred customers" had come through the fourth floor of the Metropolitan Pavilion by 2pm. With just an hour left before closing, w[...]

Jil Sander's Not-so-Private Sample Sale...

After reading the tip from a Racked reader about the Jil Sander sample sale in SoHo on Wednesday, I thought I'd try my luck and see if I could get in.  Score! I had no problems getting in this morning.  I was with four others when they opened the doors at 10am and we breezed in. I didn't have much time so I focused on the women's merchandise.  What you'll fi[...]

Tipster Review:  Kooba Handbag Sample Sale

Loro Piana Offers Deals on its Luxury Cashmere Clothing

  An old friend of the Little Mister got me an invitation to Loro Piana's Saturday preview sale.  But I ended up at the Olde Good Things enormous antiques warehouse in Scranton, PA (don't ask) instead.  Monday I managed to stop by the sale in Midtown.  There wasn't much of a crowd - just a few dapper gents and nicely dressed ladies who were well acquainted wit[...]

Marni Outlet Opens at Woodbury Commons

When I read fashion columnist Lynn Yaeger's humorous article for the NYT's travel blog about her trip to Orlando, Florida to shop at the Marni outlet, I couldn't believe the Italian label would open an outlet there first before New York.  If Yaeger waited a few months, she wouldn't have had to travel thousands of miles.    A Marni outlet opened at Woodbury Com[...]

More Than Just Denim at Rock & Republic

A small turnout for the Rock & Republic sample sale at the Metropolitan Pavilion on 18th Street. There was no crushing line.  Just a short one that took practically no time.  After a few busy sample sales this week, this one was a relief.  The savings:  50 to 80 percent off the original price.  To no surprise, there were racks and racks of denim in all si[...]
