This week will be a busy one for sample sales… For that reason, we thought we’d do a roundup of the standouts:

We start with the Nicholas Kirkwood sample sale which kicked off today at C21 Edition downtown. We hear that the discount is up to 70% off men’s and women’s shoes. We do plan on stopping in this week so stay tuned. Meanwhile, check out what we found at last Spring’s sample sale where the markdown went down to 80% off retail.

On Tuesday, the Elizabeth and James sample sale takes place at 260 Fifth Avenue. And the Olsen Twins’ luxe line, The Row, will also be offering discounts starting this Thursday at the Metropolitan Pavilion.

Also on tap is the 3.1 Phillip Lim sample sale in Soho. Click here to see what we found at the previous sale back in May.

And a rare event, an agnès b. sample sale near Canal Street will be offering men’s and women’s clothing and accessories for up to 85% off retail.

Finally, one that will likely draw a huge crowd: the Hermès sale which is taking place at Soiffer Haskin on 317 West 33rd Street. It’s been a while since we checked out this sale. Expect the discounts to be at 50% off retail. Last fall, Mizhattan was among the shoppers who got carried away. She found plenty of scarves at under $250 and enamel bangles were also on hand for around $240 and $290. If the haul this time is as good as last, we may have to check out this season’s sale.

The list is long… Which one will you check out? Let us know.
