This week Clothingline held a special joint sample sale that featured Derek Lam, 10 Crosby, and Nili Lotan. Today is your last chance to shop the offerings with the sale set to end at 7pm. Additional reductions are also in play. The only catch is that you’ll need to buy multiple items in order to take advantage of the newly discounted prices.
sunglasses and eyeglasses $95 or any 2 for $60 each
Nili Lotan: all prices further reduced
*old price list*
t-shirts $40 | shorts/skirts $60 | cotton blouses $100 | all other blouses $120 | light sweaters/pants $150 | cotton dresses $200 | blazers/outerwear/heavy sweaters $220 | all other dresses $250 | leather $450
Main thing to be aware of when shopping today is that all items need to be thoroughly inspected for signs of damage. Please allow yourselves an adequate amount of time to look through each piece. The venue even has bright orange flyers posted all over the place warning shoppers to check everything before making a purchase. As with all sample sales its final sale, no returns. In some cases the damage was extensive and likely irreparable so as enticing as it may seem to get a leather jacket for $95 or even $50 when the stains or rips can’t be fixed you’re not really saving anything. Not everything was beyond hope, there were still plenty of pieces in good condition or with minor wear like easily washable stains or light tears along the seams. If you’re curious about how this sale stacks up against Derek Lam’s annual events at 260 then for the most part I’ll tell you that 260 final day discounts are better. At their last sale in October everything was an extra 75% off sale prices, making things over 90% off retail and this included both samples and stock. 10 Crosby and Derek Lam shoes were just $25! What I am curious about is what this sale means for the next official Lam sample sale. Hopefully there will still be samples there too!
The sale also featured a small selection of sunglasses and optical frames priced at $95 or less when you buy multiple pairs. If you’ve been reading this blog then you know my love of MODO, who manufactures eyewear for Derek Lam and other designers. Their prices are just $20! But they don’t come with a case, then again is the case worth an extra $75? That’s for you to decide! Next MODO sale will be in November.
Those interested in Nili Lotan should head towards the back. There you’ll find her signature casual, Boho inspired looks in a wider size variety compared to Derek Lam. I spotted great warm weather friendly caftans, long shirt dresses, trendy off-the-shoulder numbers, and even a few Fall jackets/coats. There is a dressing room for you to try on each piece.
