Despite rain, show and sleet the sample sale must go on. Today, marked the beginning of Jason Wu’s first sample sale. Judging from the volume and large selection of merchandise we can easily say, it’s about time. This sale is also a good reminder of what it’s like to shop a real sample sale, as there are lots of current season merchandise.
Shoppers will find a great selection of current and past season Jason Wu clothing, shoes, bags and accessories. Prices $25 for sunglasses and run up to $1200 for dazzling gowns. Most of the merchandise we spotted ranged from 60% to almost 90% off of retail.
Shoppers will find great deals like this fox fur-trim motorcycle jacket, which is currently on sale at Neiman Marcus for $3252 from $5420. At the sample sale the same jacket was just $650. This black, white and yellow stripped sweaters is just $200 but is currently at Saks for $357 from $595. These whipstitched ankle boots were priced at $150 but are currently on ShopBop for $678 from almost $1700. We even found a few Daphne style bags that were priced at just $300 from a retail price of over $2000. (Above are pictures of items we found at the sample sale that are currently in stores.)
The pricing list also includes day dresses for $550, skirts for $400, blazers for $500 and tops for $250. The most expensive items are the evening gowns, which are priced at $1200. If you’re in the market for red carpet attire, we would suggest waiting for markdowns. The sale continues through Tuesday when there are likely to be additional discounts. If you’re looking to save about 90% on that fox collard jacket, however, we would suggest hitting the sale right NOW!
