The Intermix sample sale is underway and goes through this Sunday where shoppers will find lots of merchandise from a long list of brands. We checked out the deals earlier this week. Mushkie has our report:
I checked out the footwear first (70% off original retail). Shoes are lined up along the left wall. Amongst the designers on offer are Paul Andrew, Sophia Webster, See by Chloe, Tabitha Simmons, Aquazzura, and Vince.
Apparel (60%-90%off) is on racks throughout the sales floor. Clothing is divided by categories. Majority on offer are tops. There are also pants, skirts, dresses, jackets, jumpsuits, sweaters, and bathing suits. Designers I spotted are; Rag and bone, Alexander wang, Equipment, Derek Lam, Intermix, Cushnie et ochs, Elizabeth and James, Mugler, Emilio Pucci, Nili Lotan, Missoni, Jay Gottfrey, NSF, and Rail.
Discounts are based on the color on the tag. Blue is 60% off, green is 70%, orange is 80% off, and red is 90% off. Most items are 70% off. Some are 60% and 80% off. It’s hard to find the 90% off items.
Accessories are laid out on a table near the register. Discounts are the same as the apparel color coded tags. Acccesories include winter gear- gloves, head warmers, and shawls and handbags and clutches.
Jewelry is right near the register and most are damaged.
I wasn’t too impressed with the discounts. Although I did see some Sophia Webster and Jimmy Choo shoes that were cheaper here than at their sample sales. Do your research. Intermix had a sale on their sale items, and some items were cheaper there.
I spoke to a few staff members and I was told that there is no new shipment coming. They have back stock of the same styles downstairs. So they will be restocking the same styles but whatever they have is out. If that’s the case I wonder if the sale will last till Sunday. – Mushkie of Holy in Mundane
