Normally, August is a slow month for sample sales but this season, there have been some noteworthy events. For that reason, we decided to give you a roundup of what to expect this week.

There are several already underway having started today… among them is a joint sale taking place at 150 Greene Street in Soho. Deals of up to 80% off retail on ready-to-wear apparel, shoes and handbags by the British designer, Tamara Mellon as well as discounts on Lulu Frost jewelry. We are hearing that this may be Tamara Mellon’s liquidation sale. She’s apparently moving her headquarters.

Yohji Yamamoto is also hosting a sample sale on the brand’s eyewear. Expect to find deals of up to 70% off retail at its Nolita location on 224 Mulberry Street.

In the same area, the Greek beauty line, KORRES, is offering deals of up to 80% off skincare products and makeup. That one is being held at 530 Broadway (between Prince & Spring).

And… Matta offers Indian-influenced women’s clothing and handcrafted accessories and shoes at its sample sale which kicks off tomorrow at 628 Broadway (north of Houston), Suite 302.

We’ll have reviews on the sales mentioned later. But in the meantime, you can get a complete look at ongoing and upcoming sample sales in New York City, click to our Calendar Page.
