The Row is holding a sample sale on the 4th Floor of the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. It opens to the public today and goes thru xxx

We checked out last night’s preview which had a bit of a wait outside and inside at coat check.

Also of note: the Jimmy Choo sample sale was taking place in the same venue on the 2nd floor. The line for that sale went down the block.

We were not allowed to take photos so we’ll describe what we found.

Everything (includes RTW, handbags and shoes) are at 70% off retail.

Let’s start with the handbag selection which offered a variety of styles. We spotted plenty of Sidekicks (orig. $2,650), a few black Bindle Double-Knot leather shoulder bags ($1,490), Medicine large Napa pouch bag (orig. $990), double circle shoulder bags (orig. $2,000+).

Selection for RTW is not as plentiful as previous sales but there was still lots of merchandise such as knits, sweaters, dresses, silk and woven blouses, trousers, some coats and blazers. These pieces are sorted on racks by size, except for knits and sweaters which are on display on tables in the middle of the room. General range of sale pricing – $300-$600+.

Near the registers is where you’ll the footwear – flats, loafers and booties.

A communal dressing room is in the back if the space.
