httpv:// After hitting so many mobbed sample sales lately, the serene scene at Roberto Cavalli's sample sale Wednesday night seemed strange.  There were half a dozen shoppers there looking through the racks, two of them men.  I expected more customers.  But this was the preview sale.  Maybe it was just the calm before Thursday[...]

80s Revisited & Selection Limited at Lauren Moffatt

I wandered over to Lauren Moffatt's studio on W. 29th Street Tuesday evening to check out the selection at the designer's fall/winter sample sale.  On offer are mostly daytime dresses, skirts, shirts, jackets and coats for up to 70 percent off. Quite a few 80s-inspired items, which I'm not a huge fan of.  However, a couple of things did catch my eye, including a gr[...]

Cashmere Fans Turn Out for White + Warren

White + Warren fans were up early this morning, looking for deals at the label's sample sale.  When I stopped by at 8:30 am, the space across Bryant Park was mobbed.   There was already a long line to pay at the cash register.  Most of the shoppers had gathered in the back room where the real deals can be found.  If you're willing to look through boxes, you ca[...]

Deals on Sexy Skivvies at La Perla

Sunday's spring-like temperatures brought out plenty of La Perla fans.  I waited about 45 minutes to get inside the sale on W.58th Street across from the Plaza. I'm a huge fan of the Italian luxury lingerie label so I couldn't resist heading over there on the first day.  I was surprise to find a line outside but it was worse inside the sale.  The crowd in the s[...]

High-end Wear on Sale at Emanuel Ungaro

You won't find Emanuel Ungaro's new artistic advisor, Lindsay Lohan, or any heart-shaped sequined pasties at the French label's  sample sale in Hell's Kitchen... instead you can snag some high-end clothing, shoes and accessories at up to 80% off retail prices.  You can find deals on strappy sandals and heels going for between $120 to $170.  The selection is lim[...]

httpv:// I went to the J.Crew sample sale with my friend Andy and Sally reader John in mind.  Andy is looking for a gray cashmere sweater in small.  So I headed straight for the men's sweater rack after waiting about 15 minutes in line Tuesday night. I spotted a few smalls and larges, mediums were in abundance.  I didn't see a [...]
