The holiday spirit is in the air. There are festive lights, cheerful music and, yes, plenty of sample sales. The shopping sale calendar will hit a crescendo over the next three weeks. It’s a good thing because it’s the season of giving. There is no better time to buy holiday gifts for yourself and loved ones. Also, keep New Years in mind. It never hurts to pick up something sparkly, especially when there is a great discount.

Marc Jacobs Sample Sale
Marc Jacobs’s creativity is endless and his collections have been overlooked for several seasons. After opening a throwback 90s pop-up on Madison Avenue, it’s only a matter of time until he is trending on Instagram. We think this will be a great sample sale and suggest you take advantage of this sleeping giant. Discounts will be up to 85% off and the sale will include Marc by Marc Jacobs and Little Marc.
