Loeffler Randall sample sale ends Saturday May 9

High-end New York design firm Loeffler Randall surprised everyone by having a VIP preview sale yesterday. When I stopped by after work, I found a lot of merchandise left and a crowd of women frantically looking through the shoes and clothes.  The space was small and packed with shoppers that trying anything on was a challenge.  I came looking for the popular Matilde[...]

Sale:  Delman devotees turn out in droves...

Evidence tonight that women must have their shoes...  I popped into the Delman preview sale to find women frantically rummaging through boxes.  One would have thought that there was a shortage of footwear.  Delman, a respected brand since the 1920s, has a loyal following.  Apparently, the line outside earlier in the day went down the street and the cash registers we[...]

A well-dressed fellow shopper told me she was hoping to come across some Choos for work. But it was too late to find anything worth buying tonight. The only shoes up for gra[...]

Max Mara Sale

Max Mara Sale

There weren't many takers tonight at the Max Mara sale.  That's probably because there wasn't anything fabulous to buy - despite the racks upon racks of merchandise.  What was on sale appeared to be leftovers from past seasons.  Quite a selection of sample tops and blouses - size 6 or 8 - priced between $100-$200.  The handbags and shoes were uninspiring. The same f[...]

Mayle Farewell Sale

Mayle Farewell Sale

I stopped by designer Jane Mayle's boutique on Elizabeth Street in Nolita to check out her closeout sale.  I arrived there about half-an-hour before the end of the sale to find a long line (the Mayle-philes certainly turned out tonight).  Needless to say, I was concerned that I wouldn't get in.  But to my surprise, the sales girls came out to assure everyone in line[...]
