httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05tq61NpID0 The SURevolution sample sale on jewelry and home accessories starts today.  Yesterday, they allowed me to take a peak at the offerings.  Incredible bargains that won't break the bank (won't even put a dent in your account).  You'll find gold & silver dipped leaf necklaces that retailed for $800 to $1,200 now tagged a[...]

Ho-hum Hermes Sample Sale...

Unless you're a huge fan of Hermes, I'd suggest skipping this sale.  The other bloggers (Madison Avenue Spy) were correct in their overall assessment of this season's deals... a disappointing selection and dissatisfying discounts.  I stopped in Thursday morning before the Phillip Lim sample sale (A mistake - I should have just gone straight to PL).

Ralph Lauren Home Sale is Picked Through

If you're looking for furniture (or a regiment of Queen's Guards), it might be worth checking out the Ralph Lauren Home Sale in Chelsea.  Yesterday, the large space at Metropolitan Pavilion North on 19th Street looked nearly cleaned out but they did have a few things left, such as bed frames, chairs and lighting.  I went looking for a floor lamp and found only a doz[...]
