It’s a busy Privé Sample Sale weekend in the Chelsea Market where the James Perse sample sale is being held as well as other popular labels (Eli Tahari, Alice & Trixi, Juicy Couture, La Perla and more) are on offer.  You’ll find James Perse inside the complex where women’s and men’s clothing are deeply discounted.  Think basics… with the best deals on the lower level of the space.  There were tanks going for $15, tees ranging in price from $25 to $30, knits & sweatshirts for $40, sweaters at $70 and more.  The main level had men’s merchandise and women’s stuff (knits, jackets, sweatshirts and more) for 50 percent off the retail price.

The other Prive sale is taking place at the 202 Restaurant in the Chelsea Market where a mix of brands are offloading merchandise.  They include Elie Tahari (dresses at $69, knits $19, jackets$69, sweaters $39, pants $29, skirts $29), JBrand leggings $79, Alice & Trixie tops for $49, Eva Franco (dresses $65, jackets $55, skirts & tops $45), Juicy Couture (dresses and sweaters at $35 and outerwear at $79). I also spotted limited La Perla lingerie (prices were mostly $55 for bras and some plain camisoles going for $35).
