Snowstorm Be Damned! Sample Sales March On With Milly, Ghurka, Spyder & Sarah Jessica Parker

SPYDER-SS
There's little to stop a determined sample sale shopper. These are people who have been known to wait on the sidewalk for ridiculous amounts of time just for the chance to grab a coveted item at a discount, so, today's Winter Storm Stella will be just a minor inconvenience. While we don't have exact information on schedule changes due to the storm, 260SampleSale, a key promoter of such events has made it clear that they are open for business today which is a good thing since they are holding 2 notable sales this week.

Let's start however, with Clothingline in the Garment District where a big MILLY sale launched last night to run through Thursday. Expect the full range of Milly products, but don't dally. This label has a devoted cult customer.

Today, despite the sleet and ice, athletic label SPYDER (pictured above) will open its warehouse sale down at 260 Fifth Avenue. It's fitting, since performance ski and snowboarding gear is this brand's specialty. Fans and customers shouldn't be daunted by a bit of winter weather, and should be shopping through the weekend

Down at 260's SoHo location, the JIL SANDER NAVY diffusion collection is also launching its sale today featuring discounts on the luxury label's more affordable women's collection. Early reports have deep discounts putting most items well under $100 including accessories and shoes. Shop through the weekend.

Since the SJP by SARAH JESSICA PARKER shoe line shares a president with Manolo Blahnik, it's not surprising that the entrepreneurial actress is mimicking the celebrated shoe maestro's sample sale scheme. Her sale will be a one-day-only affair on Wednesday the 15th at the Warwick Hotel, so Manolo sale veterans should expect a similar set-up but perhaps without such rabid crowds. Parker's elegant shoes are something of a sleeper line, however, so plan ahead, and don't expect to simply sail in and out.

Finally, heritage leathergoods label GHURKA has switched its sample sale promoter to Soiffer Haskin which is where its rates sale will open tomorrow for three days through Friday the 17th. Look for savings up to 75% off including luggage as well as bags and accessories for men and women.

Keep an eye on our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for all details and any late-breaking events. Next week, look for events from Reiss, Berretta and more.

It's Time For Opening Ceremony's Big Brooklyn Blowout + Derek Lam & Fred Leighton

As we mentioned last week, its the off-season for sample sales, but this weekend should cause a but of a stir in the middle of the doldrums as shoppers will be flocking to Williamsburg for OPENING CEREMONY's seasonal sample sale and clearance event. This sale has bounced around Manhattan for years, but it seems to finally have found a steady location at Villain on North 3rd Street in Williamsburg, just an easy L train jaunt away. As always, the sale is expected to include a hefty amount of the SoHo retailer's eponymous collection overstock along with what's left of the store's clearance from Fall 2016 collections. Look for prices to reduce by Sunday, when shoppers with a sixth sense for finding needles in haystacks have been known to come away with hidden gems at giveaway prices. Shop from Friday through Sunday.

While nobody would be blamed for saving their pennies for that sale, there are still a few other worthwhile events happening this week. Today the 22nd, NORMA KAMALI is having another one of her signature one day sales at her midtown boutique with most items priced from $50to $100. Contemporary outerwear newcomers THE ARRIVALS are closing out their Crosby Street pop-up shop with a sale on all of its stock through Sunday the 26th.

These are two top names in the jewelry business, so along with some discerning bauble collectors, you should expect a high-security experience, so expect to check everything except your wallet, and make sure you have proper I.D.

Fivestory's Blowout, TIBI's Rare Walk-In Sale, Sweats & Hoodies On 5th Ave & More

It's a pleasantly busy sale week again as winter settles in and designers are shedding the last of their samples and overstock with a few special events for good measure.

The first bonus sale comes from TIBI, whose SoHo shop is undergoing a renovation this season. While the brand has moved its seasonal sample sales online for a few years now, it will be holding a special in-person 'Demolition' sale at its temporary shop on Wooster Street featuring past season stock and samples.

The week's biggest event may be seasonal FIVESTORY clearance sale that, this season, can be found on Greene Street in SoHo starting today, Tuesday the 17th. The uptown boutique has typically brought its final sale downtown in recent seasons, and this season should be no different.

Shop through Sunday.

On the other end of the spectrum, activewear brand AMERICAN GIANT is setting up shop at 260 Fifth Avenue through Sunday featuring good old fashioned, American-made sweats and hoodies —a perfect opportunity to stock up on cozy winter duds or classic workout gear for the retro-minded.

Bonobos, A Rachel Zoe Blowout & Last Week's Sales Extended

We're enjoying a nice post-Holiday lull in the sample sale schedule right now, but the good news is that if you missed last weeks offerings, they are still around.

The Arrivals & Faith Connexion are right where you found them in SoHo, but Scotch & Soda will be moving to the organization's alternate space on Wooster street as noted in our SALE ROLL sidebar at left.

SAMPLE CIRCUIT:

Versace, Gant, Tocca & More Present Holiday Sample Shopping Starting Today

GANT_SampleSale
It's the last week before Christmas, and the onslaught of sample sales will be letting up just a bit until after New Years, but that doesn't mean that the schedule will be going completely dark. There are even a couple of heavy hitters on deck for last minute shopping. Here are some highlights:

There are five prominent sales kicking off today, Tuesday the 20th, that might offer some useful opportunities for last minute Holiday gift buyers, the most prominent being VERSACE's four-day blowout at Soffer Haskin near Penn Station. Look for full Men's and Women's offerings from a resilient designer label that looks to be on the rise once more.
Heading east to 260 Fifth Avenue, GANT (pictured above) will be returning for its seasonal sale. Look for hefty discounts in the 75% range making it a good opportunity for last minute gifts and stocking up on basics. Shop through Friday the 23rd.
Down in SoHo, a trio of sales will launch on Tuesday including just-posted, three-day blowout at ZADIG & VOLTAIRE offering 70% off men's and women's collections through the 22nd.
The TOCCA BEAUTY and S’WELL sale at 150 Greene Street is essentially a four day gift shopping stop featuring scented candles and all manner of home fragrances alongside eco-conscious water bottles.
Finally, one block west shoppers will find sprawling sale from WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND running clear through to next Wednesday (not including the Holiday Weekend). This sale promises up to 90% off a slew of vintage wares, and though lesser known labels will definitely outnumber the coveted luxury brands like Chanel and Dior, that means that there will be some great bargains on other carefully curated vintage items including, if past sales are any indication, wide assortments of leather jackets and furs.

Check our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for details, locations and late breaking sales. Next week, the sale schedule mostly takes a much needed hiatus, but listings are already drifting in for January including Scotch & Soda and more. Until then, Happy Holidays.
