It’s hard to believe it’s mid-October when temperatures are topping 80-degrees. We wouldn’t complain a moment about wearing shorts for Halloween, we all know that this warm streak won’t last. Yes, Winter is coming!
The timing of Bonpoint’s sample sale couldn’t be more, um on point. This year the sale is fully stocked with a large assortment of winter merchandise, including boots, coats, sweaters and winter accessories. As always the discount is a straight 60% off retail but shoes, this year, are discounted 70%. There are a full range of sizes from bun-out-of-the-oven to size 12.
The selection is actual current season merchandise. At the sale we found this cashmere ‘fur’ vest for $400 from $1000, this boys v-neck sweater is $52 from $175 and is available in a variety of colors as is this cashmere mock turtle neck that’s now $120 from $300. Heading over to the girl’s merchandise there is this trompe-l’oeil effect bow sweater that’s $92 from $320. You can click here to see pictures from inside the sale.
During the press and VIP preview we saw lots of shoppers buying on behalf of relatives and friends in addition to their own children’s needs. Some people were also clearly stocking up on baby gifts and buying multiple pieces of the same item. Head this way to see pictures from inside the sale. The coats and jackets were the most impressive selection and obviously the most attractive.
We expect that the line on Wednesday morning will be very long. If you don’t have a nanny who doubles as a line waiter, we suggest heading over later in the afternoon. By then most shoppers (ie: moms) have afternoons distracted by school pickup and playdates. If you’re brave you can wait until the final day of the sale where discounts on some items go to 80% off retail.
