The legendary Italian lingerie label La Perla is known for its well-made sexy lacy lingerie.  If you own a few pieces, you’ll know that it’s well worth the high-end price.  But why pay retail when you can stock up at the brand’s sample sale which runs through this Thursday.  The sale started on Sunday when I was expecting a massive line but was surprised to find a fairly manageable sale.  Not as crowded as previous sales.

Signature lace bras and underwear (as well as basics) are all in bins organized by size.  You’ll also find lingerie, loungewear, sleepwear, swimwear and ready-to-wear hanging on racks.  The pricing is posted on the walls but can be a bit confusing.  If you’re unsure, just ask as sales associate.  They were very helpful when I needed help.  Here’s a rundown on the pricing:

Bras: La Perla, Black Label, Villa Toscana is $80 or 2 for $140; Malizia, Studio and Glamour is $50 or 2 for $90; Basics (men & women) and Occhi Verdi is $20 or 2 for $30.

UnderwearLa Perla, Black Label, Villa Toscana is $50 or 2 for $9; Malizia, Studio and Glamour is $30 or 2 for $50; Basics (men & women) and Occhi Verdi is $10.

As for other merchandise – baby dolls and chemises are $80 and $110, silk gowns, robes and PJs are tagged at $90 and $130, tees & tanks are $20, RTW is 75% off the retail price.  Check out the photos of price lists for more on the savings.  I’m told that they will be restocking on some merchandise.  Also, a sales associate tipped us off that they are likely to slash prices on the last day.
