The J Mendel private sample sale requires an appointment. If you haven’t made one, you can try to find a time slot on the last day today. A fellow shopper (thanks, D!) stopped in earlier this week and shares her thoughts as well as photos:

“Most clothing I’ve ever seen at this sale. Tons of cocktail, evening gowns and even wedding gowns. There were only ~5 wedding gowns 4yrs ago when I desperately needed one. There are well over 100 now so highly recommend brides get down here. Gowns averaged $3,500 and were ~$850 st the sale. Dresses were between $400 – $800 (orig $2,000 to $4000).

Two tables of slightly used runway Manolos ($100 or $200). Mostly size 9.5.

As expected, a great assortment of furs. Many intricately cut to resemble plaid and other designs. Furs were about 80% off retail. A trench with mink lining, cuffs and collar tagged at $1,900 from $40,000 caught my eye. But I was good so it’s still available!”

Today is suppose to be the last day of this sale. If you want to check whether they have appointments available, contact
