It’s been a few weeks since there’s been a sample sale worth mentioning. Lucky for us, spring break is over and sample sale shopping can resume. Below is a carefully curated selection of our favorite upcoming sample sales.
This has historically been one of our favorite sample sales of the season. We love the wearable and sexy clothing that is stylish but still classic. We admit we now have more than enough Yigal in our closets but a good markdown could be hard to resist. We are told that most everything will be priced at 80% off retail. Most of we snapshots we were given were from this past winter collection but you might be able to get a wearing or two if the weather continues to be schizophrenic. A sleeveless structured dress will be $175 from $1390, a leather jacket with a detachable fur collar will be $475 from $1950 and a fringe sweater will be $150 from almost $500.

Oscar de la Renta
Six days in sample sale world is an eternity. We can only imagine how much merchandise will be available at Oscar’s upcoming sale. During past sales the discounts were 80% off retail and included a range of bridal, ready-to-wear and accessories. This season, It’s a new venue and a new host, so it’s hard to speculate the sale assortment and pricing. Considering the length of the sale– did we mention it was SIX DAYS!– we would expect there to be lots of merchandise and periodic price reductions. This could be an opportune time to pick up what the last few pieces that were made under the tutelage of the master himself. Remember, the Met Ball and the Spring social season are right around the corner.

150 Greene St. (btw Houston & Prince)
Expect to be blanketed by a sea of fine cashmere at the Loro Piana sample sale. We’ve often been disappointed by the steep prices from this sale. Last season discounts range from 40% to 60% off. Despite the dismal discount, loyal fans never leave dissatisfied and continue to come back year after year. Expect to find a variety of clothing and accessories for men and women.
