Before the opening of the Elie Tahari warehouse sale, we got a peek at the offerings Tuesday evening. The sale has plenty of women’s merchandise and a limited selection for men.
Let’s begin with the ladies. We start with samples since we thought some of these items were the standouts at this sale. They can be found in the space’s downstairs level. Hanging on these racks were plenty one-of-a-kinds – dresses, blazers, suede jackets, blouses, skirts and more. You’ll need to spend a good chunk of time looking through the racks since there’s a lot to sort through.
Maybe we were just wishing for spring to arrive… but it was the colorful pieces in light airy silk and cotton fabrics that caught our eye. That said, there were also choices in dark, neutral colors. Other highlights were a few light-weight suede jackets and boucle blazers.
The main floor had racks of overstock production pieces in a range of sizes (2-16). There was a mix of basics (tops, knits & bottoms) and novelty pieces. There were items for winter (coats and sweaters) and spring.
The men’s pieces were in the bottom floor hanging on several racks which included shirts, knits, sweaters, pants, leather jackets. As we mentioned earlier, the men’s selection was very limited.
