The best deals at the Stella McCartney sale are the jeans for $60. The sale started today at Chelsea’s Metropolitan Pavilion.  I got there right when they opened this morning to find a line which was manageable.

There were also some deals on spring/summer handbags which came in all sorts of colors.  Many a bit too colorful for my taste.  Medium and large bags were between $200-$300 (the paten-leather fold over tote was on sale for $199 and a paten orange clutch $189). You’ll find most tops priced between $150-$200.  There were racks of tops but the selection and sizing was spotty.  Dresses and blazers were 80% off the regular price.  I spotted several nice summer dresses for $319 (originally $1595).  A tiny selection of T-shirts are going for $75.  A small selection of gowns regularly priced just under $2000 were also 80% off.

As for shoes, you’ll find platform sandals for $179 (reg. $895).  There were flats, stilettos, and strappy sandals - many were 80% off.

The pricing structure was pretty simple to follow – any price that ended in a “5” was 80% off and those items ending in a “9” were 50% off.

Where/When: Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th St., b/t Sixth & Seventh Aves.  July 14 & 15. Tues, (9 -7 p.m.); Wed, (9-6 p.m).
