Just a friendly reminder: The Prada sample sale starts Saturday. We suggest skipping the line and heading over during the week when prices and lines will be much more manageable. We know there are those of you who will be there before the sun rises because, snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom will keep a Miuccia lover from 75% off.

I went today (got in early b/c I have a friend that works there) and it was better then last year!!! There are bags but they were only about 40% off maybe a little more. Lots of shoes, spring, boots and what I heard someone say were samples from resort 2010. There were also Churches shoes for men. Tons of clothes including the lace collection and lots of dresses and tops from Prada and Miu Miu and lots of scarves and gloves plus small accessories, no jewelry really, my friend said that all went before the employees were done. More then usual for men this year including ties, belts, socks, shoe trees, wallets, coats, suits, sweaters, shirts, swim, shorts and a few pants.

There was no limit on shoes but limit one bag and one wallet. They upped the max number of people they are letting in at a time this year so hopefully the line will not be as bad.

What were the discounts like on shoes and ready-to-wear?

Shoes were $250 and exotics were $350. The mens Churches shoes were all as marked. The ready to wear varied in price. Bought a pair of classic black pants for about $150 but then saw some sweaters that were still well over $500 but found coats under $500. Speaking as someone who works in the industry, showroom samples get marked down the most as do items with the largest quantities so prices don't always make sense. You can also always count on bags and shoes being marked down the least.

Went today and was a bit hesitant after reading the reviews from the Racked. However I was thrilled to be surprised by the selection. Lots of handbags, bringing at least 7 of the large black nylon totes with attached arm strap for like $480. Shoes were picked over, but if you ask a sales associate, you may get lucky with some of the stock in the back. Clothing for women was an extra 50% off lowest price - so some great deals and a variety of sizes. Not really any jewelry, belts, wallets. As the day wore on, they kept bringing more inventory out, so it is worth while if you do go to make your rounds more than once and look to spend a bit of time there.

Churches shoes were all a different price, most around or under $200 and they had all sizes.

I went Monday and at 50% off it's a great source for basics. I bought a wool\silk sweater for $80 ($560) and black ski pants of all things for $122 ($680).

Hope to go back for another sweater (cashmere $80) and maybe some wool work pants.

Not touching the $500 dresses until they get to an extra 75% off.

Went yesterday. Zero line, very calm and serene inside. Prices are still 50% off, with shoes at $150 and boots/exotics at $250. Not many appealing shoes left at any size, same with bags. Lots of nice clothes though - tons of skirts and knits for under $150.
