FiveStory Clearance 80% Off (Wowzers)

January 12, 2016 by Lila Delilah

Over the weekend we got a tip-off about a sale starting at FiveStory, our favorite Uptown multi-brand boutique. Usually the store ships their overstock and past season clothing to the Bowery Hotel basement, which is out of the way and lackluster. This season, the sale is taking place right in our backyard– at the Madison Avenue boutique.

The sale doesn’t officially open to the public until Thursday but we couldn’t resist from taking a sneak peak today.  We are sure glad we did. After all, how often do you find authentic Balmain for less than the H&M collaboration?

FiveStory is clearing out most of its fall and winter collections. What makes this sale extra super is that almost everything is reduced 80%. The only exceptions we found were select jewelry and bags. that ranged from 40% to 60% off. Everything else we found was 80% off.

The boutique is set up a little like a curiosities store. Small rooms are filled with beautiful  and unexpected designer creations. The first room, is filled with cruise wear and none of it is on sale. The second room, in the middle of the store, is the heart of the sale. Inside, we found a white Giambattista Valli with floral lace and appliqu├ęs for $400 from $1995, a Rosie Assoulin metallic wool coat is $500 from $2500 and Maiyet wide-leg draped pants are $240 from $1200. (Click here for more pics and prices.)

Moving back to the ‘Shoe Garden,’ everything there too is 80% off. Hunter green suede Aquazarra shoes are $140 from $695, Nicholas Kirkwood polka-dot pearl shoes are $175 from $875 and Pierre Hardy leopard wedge pumps are $140 from $695. Be sure not to miss the Maiyet bags up top. Wow!

The last room of clothing is upstairs through the jewelry gallery that also has a nice assortment of merchandise that’s discounted between 40% and 60% off. Half the room is sale merchandise but the selection is wowzers. A red draped Balmain dress is $440 from $2200. It costs less than the dresses the Balmain dresses sold at H&M. Another spectacular velvet Balmain comes to about $1200 from $6000. A Nomia top with eyelet is $80 from almost $400 and a Mary Katrantzou mermaid cut dress is about $300 from $1580.

Take note, that in most cases only one item of each size is displayed. Be sure to ask for items in your size. The sale doesn’t officially open to the public until Thursday but it can be hard to resist such designer temptations. Pictures of our shopping trip can be found here and lots of the store’s merchandise is represented on its website. At 80% off, feel free to go crazy!
