Alice & Olivia designer, Stacey Bendet added a dose of playful energy to Madison Avenue when she opened her spirited boutique last year. If you're looking to add a bit more spirit to your holiday wardrobe then you might want to take a browse through the designer's sample sale on lover Fifth Avenue.
The Alice & Olivia sample sale was open for previews today and we got to browse the selection early. We found ranging from dresses that glitter like the the Times Square ball to sophisticated tweed blazers in on-trend colors. Prices range from $79 for pants, skirts and tops to $199 for sequined dresses.
We found lots of good deals, like a sparkle top for $79 from a full retail price of $400 (The top is still $100 more than the sample sale price at Saks.). Our favorite sale items are the $79 brightly colored peplum skirts that are still full price at Neiman Marcus for $258 and the variety of tweed jackets for $150 that are currently at Saks for $214 from $597.
The sample sale also includes a great variety of shoes that range in price from $79 for flats to $199 for tall boots. Don't miss out on the sample rack, which has lots of stylish basics that range from $29 to $99.
The sale runs through Sunday. So we suggest waiting until Wednesday if you're looking for extra discounts. We expect that there will be plenty of additional price reductions after the first flurry of shoppers.
