Despite the bad weather… fans of Phillip Lim have turned out in droves for the first day of the label’s sample sale. Check out the line, pictured above, which stretches down Mercer Street in Soho.
The DKNY sample sale in NoMad goes through this Sunday. I had a quick look yesterday afternoon. Deals start at $20 (knits, tees, skirts and shirts) and go up to $125 for basic outerwear/jackets/blazers.
Fellow blogger, Christina, checked out the Tibi sample sale being held in Soho. She describes a first day filled with a crush of shoppers and crazy waits for the dressing room.
“I arrived at the Tibi sample sale around 4 p.m. yesterday and was thrilled to find no line to get in! (There was a line when I left though.) My excitement did not last long as the space was boiling and packed with shoppers. The line for the fitting rooms was absolutely absurd. It was at least 20 people long and I swear it did not move at all for at least 20 minutes. I think I waited over 30 minutes before getting in.
