So hopefully most of your holiday shopping is done, but for procrastinators still searching for that perfect something for their loved ones (or themselves) it is worth your while to check out the Meatpacking district.
For fans of the eponymous line, Tory Burch’s sale starts tomorrow with markdowns of 30% to 50% on Fall/Winter and holiday lines. Unfortunately, no Reva flats are going on sale, but this is the perfect time to snag that pair of boots you have been coveting. Our sources tell us that all the season’s boots will be included in the markdown except for the Selma Riding Boot in tumble leather, and you can shop the sale now online.

Stop by the late designer’s Meatpacking store to score 60% savings off the fall/winter line for holiday appropriate avant-garde fashion. Expect to find gift-worthy silk scarves for $239 or cool skull bangles for $204. The hardest part is not keeping it for yourself!

Ready-to-wear for fall/winter 2011 has been marked down to 60% off retail while accessories are 40% off. While there are no classic black Falabella totes on sale, you may find luck with a tweed or duffel variety. If you’ve been really good this year, Santa might save the lone brown classic Falabella on sale for you. If you’re on the naughty list we suggest checking the online sales site which has a better selection of handbags; unfortunately none of the figure flattering “Octavia” illusion dresses on sale.

While their sales prices at 50% off retail may not be as cheap as their recent sample sale, the shopping experience at their Meatpacking boutique is sure to be more pleasant. Be sure to look for their Fall/Winter line including their fabulous outerwear and sweaters that will surely avoid being re-gifted.

If you are looking to gift quality handmade leather goods with an effortless chic-vibe, it is worth stopping by Henry Beguelin. Their fall items are discounted 30%, and any leftover summer items are 50% off retail.

No shopping excursion to Meatpacking is complete without stopping by boutique department store Jeffrey. All brands (except Alaia) fall and winter collections (including shoes) are now 40% off retail. You should head to the back of the store to shop the sale racks by size. We are still regretting passing up a lovely Chanel anorak during their last designer sale. Don’t make the same mistake!
