Sample Sale War:

Varvatos vs. Varvatos Next Week

John Varvatos has never been afraid of a sample sale. they seem to run frequently in New York, and we are willing to bet that he is featured on Gilt Groupe more often than any other designer. It hasn't appeared to hurt his business at retail, but the test will come next week when not one but two big Varvatos sales hit Manhattan.
The first is the familiar semi-annual sale run by Misorena Ltd. at 260 Fifth Avenue from Thursday the 22nd to Saturday the 24th. As usual, this sale offers prices up to 75% off retail, and regulars will recognize it as an excellent source for great buys.
The newcomer to the mix is a John Varvatos Warehouse Sale scheduled for the same Friday and Saturday at Metropolitan Pavilion. This one will require an RSVP at, which has apparently not been properly set up yet (try it on Monday).
So which one is the real Varvatos Sale? Or better, which one will have the best deals? Even better, isn't there someone at John Varvatos who is supposed to keep this sort of thing from happening?
