White + Warren has a large following. That was evident this morning at its sample sale near Bryant Park. I’ve been to many of the New York label’s sample sales but I’ve not seen it as crowded as today!
The line to pay snaked around the room making it difficult to look at the merchandise and shop. Plus, the humidity and the small space made this not at all an experience this sample sale veteran wanted to deal with. So I left after quickly checking out the offerings.
The sample sale room was also mobbed. Boxes of samples in disarray. Pricing is $50 for cashmere, $30 for non-cashmere knits, tees and accessories for $15.
In the main floor, there are tons of offerings – some hanging on racks and others in plastic on tables. There are lots of cashmere from sweaters ($100-$125), dresses/robes $150, tees ($75) and more. Cashmere travel wraps are near the register and are tagged at $150. Also on offer are Non-cashmere pullovers and second layers at $70. Combed cotton hoodies, dresses and boatnecks are $50. Great deals on tees where the more you buy, the more you save – 1 for $30, 2 for $50, 3 for $60.
If you want to brave the sale, I suggest going mid-afternoon when the crowd should dissipate. The sale ends tomorrow (Wednesday, Oct 25th). Click here to our Calendar Page for location/dates/time of this and other sales in New York City.
