It feels like Spring but we are barley half way through Winter. We don't suggest packing away those bulky sweaters, just yet. Even April can be a brisk month but that doesn't mean it's too early to start scoping out sample sales to fill in your Spring wardrobe.
We've exclusively listed only the sample sales that would personally consider attending. The post will continue to be updated throughout the month and remain just a click away in the right sidebar. Below is a list of what we believe to be March's best sales. Feel free to leave feedback in the comments section so that everyone can benefit from the 'Spy' network.
Kiton Sample Sale
At the last sale suits, jackets, outerwear, pants, skirts, knitwear, ties and shoes can be found discounted 75% off retail. If you're not worried about catching the best selection, wait until the last day when priced have dipped to 85% off retail at prior sales. Sweaters were as low as $165 and pants and shirts were about $100.
