The Theory, Theyskens Theory sample sale is taking place this week in the Garment District. Christina wandered into the Clothingline space yesterday and tells us what she found:
“I stopped by the Theory sample sale about an hour after it opened, but was surprised to find no line to get in. Don’t let that fool you though, the line for the communal dressing room was extremely long.
The Theory & Helmut Lang sample sale being held at Clothingline in the Garment District is now offering an additional 30% off the sale price. Even with the further reductions, fellow blogger, Christina, tells us the sale is not worth a special trip.
The last day of the Theory and Helmut Lang sample sale brings even more markdowns. Today, shoppers can get an additional 50% off the sale price. We stopped in Wednesday night to find lots of shoppers ransacking the racks.
Several retailers are offering sample sales online giving 50% to 80% off retail… Notices from Theory, Helmut Lang and James Perse hit our inbox this morning. After taking a quick look, we decided the deals were worth mentioning.
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).
