The Marc Jacobs sample sale opens to the public tomorrow at 260 Fifth Avenue. If you do plan to check it out, be prepared to wait in long lines. This sale tends to draw a huge crowd.

Tuesday evening, we stopped into the preview where items are either discounted at 80% or 85% off retail.

First off, we have to say that there is no dressing room or mirrors so it will be a challenge if you want to know whether some items will fit!

Women’s merchandise is in the main area and men’s on one side of the space. Ready-to-wear is 85% off for Collection and Marc by Marc Jacobs for both sexes.

Little Marc and handbags are in the back of the space and are 80% off retail along with accessories.

There was much more Collection pieces at this sale than the past one, specifically for women. Most of the Collection pieces were ranging from $200-$400, depending on style. For example, a silk dress was on sale for $240 as was a denim striped tailored jacket with jeweled buttons which caught my eye. A signature sweater was $140. Leather jackets were $450. Handbags that I looked at (medium and large) were $400+ on sale.

There’s no shoes for women, just a few random footwear for men.
