Prada Sample Sale Update

Racked.com has the skinny on what's going on at the Prada sale, It appears as if the standard discount is 50% off. Who needs to wait in a two hour line to buy last season's clothing when they were 45% off in the boutique. Well, not me!

One Mad-Spy reader braved the sale and even talked her way past the bouncers. (Snaps for getting past the line. We love a bit of civil disobedience.) Here's what she said:

Went to the Prada sale today around 4:45pm. I was told by two doormen that they were not letting anyone else in for the day because it was "at capacity". After telling the two doormen that I was a regular Prada customer at the retail level, I was allowed in. It was in no way crowded (I guess it was wishful thinking). There aren't any handbags or small leather goods being sold at this sale. What little selection there was in shoes was horrible - leftover summer styles from prior seasons. Most of the other merchandise was laying on the floor instead of on hangers. I found this sale to be a HUGE disappointment. I always purchased great merchandise in prior years at the Fuller Building. I guess all good things come to an end.

Thanks for the update. Keep sending them in!

I went early in the day and there were plenty of people there. But men were not among Prada's friends or family this year -- there was practically nothing in the men's area! But I did pick up some silk scarves for gifts so all was not lost.

Well of course it's going to be a huge disappointment if you show up a little over an hour before the sale closes for the day and something like 400 people have been there before you.

The shoes were $150 a pair and all the good ones were gone within the first 30 minutes of the sale.

Actually, I'm glad this person went so late. More for me.

I went and waited for three hours and ended up with a coat that was 75% off. Same as the style I was looking at in the store on madison only in navy rather than black. It was $1200 marked down to $300. Some things were not marked down enough and most of the light colored pants were really dirty. If you wanted clothes it was worth it. Anyone who actually expected there to be bags does not live in reality.
