It's turning out to be a varied and busy week in Sample Sale shopping as we get closer and closer to the peak season. Here are the latest highlights:
An old favorite for luxury bedding fanatics, SFERRA started its seasonal sale yesterday at Soiffer Haskin. Look for the Italian brand's famously lavish bed linens in the spotlight along with high quality bath linens, pillows, home furnishings and table linens starting at 70% off. Even with a deep discount, the sumptuous bedding can still be pricey, but there is typically a selection of basic sheet sets at more approachable prices. Shop through Thursday.
Starting today, the popular fashion rental website RENT THE RUNWAY is clearing out of "gently used" designer dresses and accessories at 260 Fifth Avenue. Typically, the selection can range from affordable contemporary labels to luxury Prêt-à-Porter designers now at 90% Off for anyone who doesn't mind a party dress that has been around the block a few times. Shop through Sunday
Tomorrow, NANETTE LEPORE will once again open her Garment District showroom for her seasonal Sample Sale. This one is billed as a Spring sale featuring her New York made contemporary sportswear and accessories through Friday.
On Thursday, Up and coming women's designer MAIYET will share 150 Greene Street in SoHo with home fragrance brand D.L. & CO, known for its elegant candle containers. Look for Maiyet's globally sources, sustainable luxury collection including apparel, handbags and shoes through Sunday.
If you are lucky, you managed to snag a ticket for Friday's opening evening shopping sessions at the GILT CITY WAREHOUSE SALE at the Altman Building. If not, then tickets are still available as we type this for times on Saturday and Sunday. Look for discounts above and beyond the already reduced prices of items from Gilt's vast warehouses of designer apparel for men, women and children. Extra treats and beverages are also offered depending on which session you attend. If you don't already have a Gilt membership, then sign up HERE.
Finally, on Sunday, Soiffer Haskin will continue with the Italian Luxury theme when it opens the seasonal LORO PIANA sale. Famous for its unparalleled cashmere knits, the legendary Italian brand will also have apparel, accessories and bolts of raw wool and cashmere fabrics for custom tailoring.
