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). The much sough[...]

Escada Sample Sale:  Artsy Anna Takes a Look at the First Day

With all the sample sales taking place today, it may not have been easy to figure out which one to hit first. Artsy Anna hit up the Escada sample sale. While she didn't have much of a wait to get in this morning, apparently the line was growing as she left (I bet it wasn't as bad as the line for the Phillip Lim sample sale this morning).  Here's Anna's report: I've[...]

Mark your calendars... in less than a month, the bi-annual Barneys Warehouse Sale returns to Chelsea.  It's an event that many have been waiting for, especially with the lackluster sale season so far.  As Mizhattan and Racked reported yesterday, BWS starts at 8am on Thursday, February 17th. As many of you know, merchandise is marked down 50 to 75 percent off [...]

If you're planning a warm weather getaway this winter, you might want to stop into the Calypso St. Barth sample sale where everything is going for under $100.  You'll find signature light-weight pastel pieces.  Our contributor, Sample Sale Diva, stopped in this afternoon to take some snapshots.  Here’s what you can expect:  summer dresses now $49 (retailed a[...]

Tocca Sample Sale - Extended & Further Reductions

We just got a notice from the folks at Tocca that they are now offering further reductions on clothing (NOT  the beauty products which includes candles) - around $10 or a bit more off.  They also have extended their sale through next Tuesday.  They will NOT be open this weekend.  So if you haven't made it to this sale... check it out today or early next week. Whe[...]
