This week, fashionable moms are going to want to take advantage of the L.O.L. Kids sample sale, which includes European kids brands like Sonia Rykiel, Monnalisa, Jakioo, Miss Grant, Microbe, Sara Banda and TroiZenFants. The sale starts Monday, May 7th and runs until the inventory is gone-- which should be at least two weeks.
We took a browse through the collection and was very pleased with the merchandise selection. Prices are wholesale, which is not as discounted as some in-showroom sample sales but still a good bite off of retail. We found wonderful Monnalisa coats with fur trim hoods for $200, a Sonia Rykiel hooded knit sweater was $326, a Miss Grant jacket was $160, a Sara Banda tee was $30 and a baby dress was $24.
As you can see, the brands and prices range widely. The collection is all winter 2012, which means it hasn't even hit stores yet. Sizes are abundant in the newborn to 9 month size and then picks up again at size 3 and ranges up to size 8. We suggest shopping this sale towards the beginning because there will be no restocking. It is possible, however, that whatever remains in a few weeks will be reduced.

Mon to Fri 10am-6pm, Sat & Sun 10am-5pm
