While we've been combing the markdowns at department stores and boutiques, designer sample sales have been heating up. This coming week is turning out to be a great time for sample sale shoppers. Even though there are dozens of scheduled designer sales we would suggest selecting your shopping destinations carefully. Here are a few of our top picks:
Expect to find the brand's gem bangles priced at about $600 each from a retail price of $2000. That means that you can get a full 3-stack for the normal price of just one. Silver hoop earrings with topaz are normally $1400 reduced to about $420. A gold pendant with onyx is normally $2000 reduced is likely to be priced at about $600.

Fashionable men and their stylists take note of this sale. Isaia is known throughout the world as one of the finest designers of men's clothing and finding discounts like these is not a normal occurrence. At the last sale shoppers were able to snag suits and tuxes for $850, dress shirts for $125 and outerwear for $450. Normal retail prices for suits and tuxes can go up to $3000, $450 for shirts and upwards of $4000 for outerwear. Even the most irreverent Goldman snob swoons over deals like these.
