Proenza Schouler Sample Sale:  Any Goodies Left?

There's a lot of merchandise left at the Proenza Schouler sample sale.  While Friday is the last day of the sale, you'll still find plenty of dresses, tops, skirts, pants and tees.  Most of the dresses are between $200-$400.  A couple of frocks caught my eye but the $360 price tag was a little too steep. I didn't see anything worth taking home.  There were boxes f[...]

Things are Looking Sunnier…

Things are Looking Sunnier...

Sunner started its two-day sale today, taking up to 90 percent off its Holiday/Resort 2008 collection.  I went to the label's last sale back in January and picked up some great things so I made sure to head over there early this morning.  Good thing, because when I got to the space in Midtown, it was already crowded with shoppers looking through [...]

Not Worth the Theory…

Not Worth the Theory...

Clothingline appears to be the dumping ground for designers desperate to unload their merchandise, despite the condition of the garments.  That was evident at Theory's latest sample sale which started Monday and runs through this Thursday.  As with most sales, I was hopeful going into this one.  But what I found was a lot of damaged goods with stains, rips, mis[...]

Southern Exposure:  Summer Deals at Billy Reid

Alabama designer Billy Reid is hosting a summer sale at his Bond Street store in NoHo.  I stopped in yesterday to check out the women's clothes, which have a vintage feel with a modern edge.  As I walked in, I spotted samples hanging from a rack (under $100).  There, you'll find some nice tops for as low as $45 and dresses starting at $65.  The only problem, [...]

James Serves up the Deals at its Sample Sale...

Tuesday's rain may have stopped many shoppers from checking out the James Jeans sample sale at the brand's showroom on Greenwich Street near Spring.  But the steady trickle of customers who did show up yesterday after work walked out with purchases.  That's because there are deals to be had for both men and women and plenty of merchandise to choose from.  You'l[...]
