Elie Tahari Sample Sale Has Your Next 9 to 5 Look

Elie Tahari is hosting their semi-annual warehouse sale inside the company’s midtown showroom. The sale runs through Saturday and features the quintessential New York City staples for women and men that will give your office look a much needed upgrade.

I had a chance to check out the sale last evening and the place was buzzing with after work crowd. Well suited ladies and gents were perusing the racks in search of office staples like basic blazers, a-line skirts, white button downs, and of course power pumps just to name a few. While office appropriate pieces seemed to dominate the sale there were plenty of dresses, knits, and outerwear that will work for any look. Prices started at just $19 for knits and topped out at $499 for furs and shearlings. Please refer to the price list below for the full breakdown. Sizes ranged from XS to XL for the ladies and you’ll be happy to know that there was a dressing room (just be prepared for long waits). Everything was also neatly organized by category with price tags already denoting the sale price.

After the mandatory coat check, head inside the multi level showroom where you should start with the leather and fur/shearling racks straight ahead. I spotted quiet a few $279 leather and $499 shearling jackets perfect for the current weather. Unfortunately there were no more leather pants or skirts and restocking in these categories was unlikely according to inside sources. Amongst the leathers were also $99 blouses and vests but $129 dresses were nearly sold out. Dresses and tops were located on the main level to the left of the entrance. Color palettes were predominantly dark with lots of greys although there were a few bright reds and pastels hidden amongst the racks.

Shoes, trousers, skirts, and menswear could be found up a few steps on the mezzanine mini level. Along the right wall and in the corner were shelves with ladies $99 pumps, $79 flats, $129 boots, and $79 sandals. There were lots of blacks and greys with a sprinkling of beige, red, green, and blue. There were also two boxes of $9 tights near the shoe area. Gentlemen will want to head towards the left side where all menswear was located.

BOTTOM LINE: This sale is very well stocked with office appropriate attire and features a good selection of affordably priced leathers. There will be more discounts towards the end of the sale, including the highly popular hourly flash sales where a particular category can get discounted as low as $20. Unfortunately there is no exact time frame when such discounts are scheduled to hit so you might as well cross your fingers and hope they happen during your visit. Try to avoid lunch time and after work crowds for a more tranquil experience and definitely check out the sale if you work in an office environment.

      Thanks Colette. You're right, Elie Tahari can be found cheaper at various outlets which is why I recommend waiting for final discounts or shopping during the flash sales. Not easy I know.
