It appears as if Winter has finally hit the road. The skies are blue and warmer weather is here. We couldn't think of a more inviting environment to hit the sample sale track. This week, there are several sales occurring. Below are some of our favorites:
Hanro of Switzerland
We always love a true sample sale. The only pitfall is the sizing. Expect to find discounts of about 75% off retail at this Hanro sale. The selection includes loungewear, sleepwear, and underpinnings for men and women. Unfortunately, most everything is a sample size, which is a woman's waif (small) and a men's skinny (medium).
Through Wednesday, April 20th
Tue 8am—6pm, Wed 8am—5pm
358 Fifth Ave (btwn 34th and 35th), 6th fl
Here's another great opportunity to shop direct from the designer's showroom. At the last sale everything was priced under $200. Shoppers should expect to have to mine through cardboard boxes and disorderly racks but these types of shopping conditions make finding a diamond even more rewarding.
Wednesday, April 20th through Friday, April 22nd
260 W 39th St (btwn 7th & 8th Ave), 4th floor
The last Nest sample sale was at 260's SoHo sample sale space. Prior to the sale closing we were able to stock up on standard size candles and fragrant liquid soaps for just $15 each. The West Side Highway is bit of a journey from the Upper East Side but we suggest recruiting someone who already works in the building. (It's so big, you must know someone!)
Wednesday, April 20th through Thursday, April 21st
601 W 26th St (btwn 11th & 12th Ave), Suite 1340
We are told that this four-day Westwood sale will include clothing, shoes, bags, small leather accessories, scarves, jewelry, and sunglasses. We anticipate that more recent collections (last year's) will be discounted 60% and older collections could be reduced up to 90%. Expect to find assorted merchandise from the Anglomania, Red Label, and Gold Label lines.
