While the Escada sample sales in the recent past have been a disappointment, this time may be different.  According to Artsy Anna, there were some great deals to be had at this week’s sale in Chelsea.  Here’s her report:
What a fabulous time I had today at Escada.  I generally think of this as a brand for more mature ladies but I walked out with two dresses and a pair of pants and plan to return tomorrow.  Prices are 75-95% off original tags.  Percentage off is indicated by colored dots but you’ll need a calculator to keep tabs on what you’re spending.

The merchandise ranging in size from 34-44 and are immaculately arranged by size and discount.  75% off merchandise is close to the entrance and 95% off items are towards the back.  There is plenty in the 95% off section if you wear a size larger than 36. What could be better than 95% off?  An extra 25% off!

There’s tons of great stuff here.  Size 38s take note–I spotted this gorgeous forest green coat dress from Fall 2008 RTW in the 95% off section.  There’s also an accessories table toward the registers.  All shoes are $100 and boots are $150.

Where/When:  The Metropolitan Pavilion – North; 110 W. 19th St. (b/w 6th & 7th Aves) Thru Tuesday June 15; (10-5pm). 212-852-5446
