The Tibi sample sale got underway yesterday at it’s Soho boutique on Wooster Street. As fans of the New York based brand know, for the past few seasons Tibi has moved its sample sales online. This event gives them an opportunity to grab some great deals (actual samples) in person!
The sale is taking place in the basement of the store. You’ll need to check in your coat and bags before you head over there.
Let’s start with the samples. They’re hanging on the middle racks and the corners of the space. You’ll know they’re samples because they don’t have labels (these are prototypes, one-of-a-kind pieces) or specific sample labels. Just ask a staffer if you’re not sure. Pricing starts from $40 for accessories, $50 for tops, $75-$100 for dresses and tops off to $150 for leather. Shoes are just $50 but when we checked out the deals last night, there were only a handful of footwear. Also, the samples were already getting picked over. Besides a few pairs of pants and tops, most of the pieces were not that enticing. Let’s hope they restock here!
Besides samples, there are production pieces from the Pre-Fall collection which is 70% off retail, plus an additional 15% off. There seemed to be a pretty good selection of separates (tops, skirts, pants, etc). The sale is also being offered online (click here) but not all the items online were 70% off. Therefore, you’re better off going to the store.
There was also bargain bins of fabric ($5-$25) which some shoppers were snagging.
Sale ends next Monday, January 23rd. Click to our Calendar Page for location/date/time details for this and other sales in New York City.
