Weekend Shopping: Sample Sales, Uniqlo and Rag & Bone

Chilly April showers really don't help Spring feel like Spring. We might have to settle with shopping for Spring until those grey rain clouds part and May flowers bloom. This weekend, there are a few noteworthy shopping destinations. See below for details.

Maiyet and DL& Co Sample Sale
Maiyet, which is basically a curator of goods from international artisans has discounted much of their collection to about 80% off. The brand's popular bags range in price from $150 to $250 from retail prices that go from about $1000 to $2000. During the preview, the bags were the biggest hit and we would be surprised if there are any still left over. Instead direct your attention towards the shoes and jackets. Sandals are priced at $100, shoes are $200 and boots are $250.

The other, more aromatic, part of this sample sale duo is DL & Co. The candle company is best known for their skull candles and colorful crystal scalloped glass candles. They have long been a favorite of ours. Prices range from $10 to $25. We suggest waiting until Sunday to snag the best deals on candles. If you don't make it, keep an eye open at Homegoods and TJ Maxx where DL & Co. items are usually priced about the same as this sale.
Through Sunday, April 10
Fri & Sat 10am-7pm, Sun 11am-5pm
150 Greene Street

It's no secret that we are huge Uniqlo fans. It's our first and last stop for basics for the entire family and it's a really fun store to shop. Through the weekend, the Japanese mega-store is hosting an anniversary sale with lots of crazy inexpensive prices. Ultra Stretch Jeans, which are really just skinny jeans are $40 from $50, women's pajamas are $15 from $30 and cotton-cashmere blend sweaters are $15 from $30 too. While you're shopping be sure to check out the store's basic tees that are just $10, the famous Ultra Light Down jackets that come in 12 colors and Liberty of London prints, which we like best for little kids.

Rag & Bone Private Sale

You can save 25% off nearly everything at Rag & Bone through the weekend TK. Use the code PRIVATE25 when checking out. Usually we associate Rag & Bone with jeans but this season they have a great collection of fashionable items. Some favorites include, this mesh shirt, this perforated dress and this perforated bag. (It appears I have a fixation with anything holy)
