The DKNY sample sale has something for everyone with discounts ranging from 70% to 80% off retail. Quite literally, the women’s clothing selection ranges from size 0 through 14, with a couple racks per size.
We were floored by the great selection of dresses, including festive cocktail versions that are currently being sold online. Our favorite find was a $355 metallic floral lace peplum dress, a steal for $85 considering the online sale price is still $129. All dresses are $85, but we think skirts, tops, pants and denim are the better deal being that they are priced at just $30.
Our best finds include leather peplums and leather and ponte pencil skirts. All of the leather and shearling items are priced as marked, so expect to pay between $100 to $250 depending on style. There are some nice $40 silky blouses and good basic shirts from which to choose. Towards the back there is a plentiful shoe section, with lots of shoes for $30 and boots and booties (mostly in larger sizes) for $50. There are some accessories on tables, but the $75 handbag selection isn’t great. We found the $50 belt and playful $30 scarves are better options.
We were really hoping to see some Donna Karan Collection pieces in the mix, but didn’t have any luck. Although the sale has some good deals on current DKNY the brand isn't he most difficult to find on markdown. TJ Maxx and Marschalls immediatly come to mind as a sample sale alternative.
