Pricing is Spotty Inside J. Crew Sample Sale for Women & Kids

Further Markdowns at Proenza Schouler Sample Sale

We stopped into C21 first thing this morning to find that they had slashed prices on Proenza Schouler an additional 30% off the sale price, except handbags. The space was quiet with just a few shoppers browsing the racks. What's left? Lots of ready-to-wear.

The Rebecca Taylor sample sale gets underway today at 260 Fifth Avenue.

Another Take on Alexander McQueen Sample Sale

Tomorrow (Thursday) is the last day of the Alexander McQueen sample sale. No word on whether they're offering further discounts.

I first stopped by at noon, but the line stret[...]
