The Christian Louboutin sample sale is being held this week. Despite being Invite-Only, this is one of the most popular shopping events where many will try their luck to get inside. At lunchtime today, the line was around the block.
We got word about a consignment store on the Upper East Side, Encore, that’s hosting its semi-annual sale. We’ve never been inside but they carry some high-end designer labels.
We’re a bit late getting out our sales roundup for New York City… Take a look at the list below of a few notable ones taking place this week:
Let’s start with the Aloha Rag semi-annual sample sale which kicks off this Thursday. Shoppers can get up to 85% off new & old stock from current and previous seasons as well as samples from the AR’s house brand. While sale prices are never as good as we hope at previous sales, we still like to check out this sale since the store features great labels such as Saint Laurent, Balmain, Martin Margiela, Celine and more… Where/When: 545 Greenwich Street, 2A, NY, NY; May 16-19; Daily (12pm-6pm).
Starting this week, those of you who love to collect shoes are in for a treat… Three of the highly-sought after footwear brands are having a sample sale.
First up is the Jimmy Choo sample sale, which starts tomorrow. If the sale is like previous ones, the average price for most shoes will be about $225. Be prepared to stand in line for this one… Also, unless you’re on the friends & family list, you might be facing major disappointment. At last spring’s sale, the selection was seriously depleted just a couple of hours after they let the public inside. Where/When: Metropolitan Pavilion, 123 West 18th Street, 4th Floor, NY, NY; May 7-8; Tues (12pm-7pm), Wed (9am-7pm).
