Sometimes with very little information we get a hunch that a sample sale is going to be great. That’s exactly what happened when we noticed that Zac Posen was scheduled to offer his samples and overstock to the public. We needed to investigate further.
The sale doesn’t actually start until Monday, but we were given a sneak peak while the boxes were being unpacked. The inventory is impressive. There are lots of gowns and dresses and everything is priced between 70% and 80% off retail. We found a strapless fuscia cocktail dress reduced to $690 from $3490, a heavy floral tapestry day dress priced also at $690 from $4450 and a less formal floral silk dress for $490 from $2690. (Click here for pictures.)
It’s always our belief that you should keep a few gowns in your closet even if they aren’t worn often. A wise shopper will bank a gown and wear it as needed rather than risk spending five-figures for the need-it-now situation. This is a perfect opportunity to get ready for the winter party season.
Take note, the sale is taking place at the handmade bag manufacturer Hayward. Prices are 70% off retail and there is a variety of beautiful box bags and cross bodies. Definitely worth a look but the gowns are certainly the highlight.
If you can’t make it to the sale, we’ve scoured the internet for similar discounts. Happy holiday readying!
