The Sample Sale Schedule takes a much needed rest this week, and so should you be. There should be enough department store and designer boutique clearances going on to keep everyone busy enough, but in the event that you are a hopeless addict and constitutionally unable to avoid sample sales, we can enable you with a few events like the continuations of A.P.C.'s clearance and Earnest Sewn's boutique closing sales in the West Village through tomorrow.
Later in the month, there will be more big sales from Max Azria's BCBG and Hervé Léger collections as well as a popular off-site, end-of-season clearance from the Upper East Side's Fivestory that will take place at the Bowery Hotel, so save up and mark your calendars.
The one big event on the schedule for this week is the gigantic bonanza known as the Shoe-Inn Annual Warehouse Sale at Gotham Hall near Macy's Herald Square on Thursday. Yes, here is one more opportunity to claw your way through crowds of other like-minded ladies for deep discounts on designer shoes including popular labels like Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and so many others. Reportedly, there will be over 7,000 pairs of shoes and boots to be snapped up with shoes priced at $25, $50, $75 and $99, and boots similarly staggered from $50 to $199.
Football padding might be in order.
See our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for hours and more details as well as any late-breaking events that cross our desk.
Have a Happy New Year, and The Shophound will see you in January.
