This is turning out to be a big month for Hermes lovers. Later this week the Hermes-Apple Watch will be available at big Orange and the Fruit. Those who aren’t satisfied with glitzy technology on a strap can hold out for the French retailer’s sample sale that will take place later this month.

Last year, the Hermes sale is better than the past several sales but brand veterans were still were not very impressed. Most everything was priced at 50% off retail. Shoppers can expect to find a nice assortment of scarves and enamel bracelets.
The last sale had no leather bags, wallets or small leather items. We also didn’t find any leather bracelets or belts. Ties were plentiful as were shoes and boots. The best items, were the Cape Cod watches, gloves and hats. The sale also included a bit of china and clothing.
One thing that was abundant were the limits. For obvious reasons, each shopper could only purchase three scarves, five bracelets and 10 ties. We heard that some sales people will hold scarves so that you can take another pass at the checkout line.
