Welcome to this week’s edition of the shopping guide series. It finally feels like Fall here so time to break out those sweaters and boots! In case you’re looking to spruce up your wardrobe some of this week’s sample sales offer great deals on transitional staples like jackets and knitwear.

First off we have an update on St. John‘s first ever sample sale. It has been extended through Thursday with additional discounts of 50% off  (updated price list here) opening day sale prices. Please check out last week’s post for photos and price lists. Over at Soiffer Haskin they have already started offering incremental markdowns on Loro Piana sample sale. Expect savings of 40%-60% off retail and sky high prices. While I’m a huge fan of the luxury Italian label these Soiffer sales don’t actually offer any substantial savings. You can read my report from last year for more details especially since this sale offers basically the same merchandise and same terrible prices. Starting today Clothingline is hosting the semi-annual Milly sample sale. The organizers promise more merchandise than ever, including stock and original samples at unbeatable prices. Last year’s sale certainly lived up to the hype, particularly when it came to bags and accessories. You can read all about it right here. The Spring sale on the other hand was a bit of a disappointment as all bags sold out during the employee preview. Tomorrow you can shop Rent The Runway‘s semi-annual sale at 260 Fifth Ave. Bargainistas know to expect up to 90% off gently worn designer dresses and gowns but unfortunately we also know that “gently worn” is a euphemism for ripped, damaged, and dirty. Read more about the sale here but heed my advice and wait for additional discounts during the weekend. On Wednesday check out the one-day sample sale from The Sak brand group featuring their signature handbags and accessories as well as merchandise from Sak Root, and Elliot Lucca. Over at the Chelsea Market you’ll be able to shop Vince‘s Fall sample sale with savings of up to 70% off men’s and women’s merchandise. Leaving for a tropical getaway or want to get a head start for next summer? Then Camilla and Hemant & Nandita sample sale might be for you. Held inside VPR showroom, the sale will offer modest savings of 60% off retail. Meanwhile the designer menswear event at Century 21 Stores continues through the end of the week and the Quest Collection warehouse sale has been extended through the end of October. Please note that they’re closed on weekends and only open until 2pm on Fridays. Any particular sales you’re excited to check out this week or next month? Let me know! And happy shopping!
