If you’re looking for motivation to stick with your current diet or exercise regimen, look no further than Thakoon Panichgul’s sample sale. The selection and prices are noteworthy but those who fit into a sample size four will make out better than a thief with a king’s ransom.
The sale is basically broken down to four color coded prices, which run $50, $100, $150 and $200. Most samples are a straight size four and are priced at $50 or $150 for more elaborate pieces. The open sock for both Thakoon and Thakoon Addiction are priced the same way.
Hot pink Thakoon dresses were $150 as was a full gold lame maxi dress. There’s a lot of stock from the resort 2012 collection including, the black and white story and yellow and white combinations. Most of the tops are priced at $150 and the dresses are generally $200. (You can use these pictures for reference.)
The selection also includes items from this spring season, including lots of aqua and bright prints with gold. This butterfly dress was $150 but is in Saks for $920. We also found some wonderful floral trenches with retail prices upwards of $1500 marked down to $100.
Mixed into the color coated dots were a few more ornate items like a full lather dress for $300, a brown leather jacket for $250 and a heavy winter dress with lots of ornate beading for $400. Along the floor shoppers who wear a size 40 shoe will have lots of $100 from which to choose.
The sale does have a small amount of open stock and some styles even have a full size range. We even spotted a few skirts in a size 10 and dresses in size 8s. So not all is lost if you’re not a svelte size four. You can see a full set of pictures from our shopping trip with a clicky clicky right here.
