The Diane von Furstenberg sample sale is normally a favorite among sale shoppers but this season it seems as if it just ain't happening. That means no $50 sample sale rack, no $150 dresses and no additional markdowns. Organizers of the sale say that a date was never set and a press representative for DVF told us that there is nothing in the planning stages.
Those of you have stashed away for the DVF sale should not fret Racked NY has a list of almost 30 sales for the month of June. Just remember, not sample sales offer great deals. Below is a short list of upcoming sales that we would consider worthy of our time and (some) money.
Saturday, June 1
By appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ace Hotel 38 West 39th Street (b/w 5th & 6th Ave)
Commentary: Expect to find the obvious dress that's $4800 reduced to $1200 but there is also usually a selection of clothing in those with a more temperate budget. Last season we found clothing was priced between $200 and $500, shoes ranged from $150 to $350 and bags were about $200ish.
Sunday, June 2 through Wednesday, June 5
Sun 10am— 6pm, Mon 11am—8pm, Tues—Wed 11am—7pm
Clothingline, 261 W. 36th St between 7th & 8th Aves, 2nd fl
Commentary: Prices are marked up to 60% off, which isn't necessarily epic. The biggest draw is always the leather jackets, which were priced at $475 from about $1000. Basic tops and dresses, which are always a great staple were priced at $95. Tees were $55, but we prefer the Gap for $10. Helmut Lang fans could also check out Net-a-Porter, where a great variety of merchandise is discounted 50%.

Sun 1pm—5pm, Mon—Thurs 11am—7pm
225 Fifth Avenue between 26th & 27th St
Commentary: The sale will include nightwear, swimwear and clothing that will be discounted up to 80% off. At the last sale La Perla & Black Label collections were priced $80 for bras, $50 for undies, $110 for babydolls and $130 for gowns and silk robes. One piece bathing suits were $110 and bikini's were 90%.
