Happy Halloween 👻 🎃 everyone! Hope you all had fun playing dress up or taking your little ones trick or treating because things are about to get serious. Yep, we’re talking serious shopping, the kind that will make your wallet cry and have you saying goodbye to this month’s rent money. November is almost upon us and you know what that means………..the busiest, craziest, and the most jam-packed sample sale month starts now! Read on for this week’s edition of the shopping guide and check back tomorrow for the complete November calendar of events.

Today we open up with a major beauty sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. Save on makeup by Laura Gellar, candles and frangrances from Nest as well as haircare products by Deva Curl. This is a great time to start shopping for holiday gifts. 

On Tuesday there’s a whole bevy of sample sales including Pratesi linens for all your bed and bath needs. As this is Soiffer don’t expect rock bottom prices. Speaking of home and linens you can also check out Chilewich at Clothingline that will be fully stocked with their signature placemats and napkin sets. If you’re looking for some holiday dresses or just to stock up on some seasonal pieces then Yigal Azrouel‘s sample sale might be just the thing. The sale takes place inside designer’s Garment District showroom and offers up to 80% off women’s apparel and accessories. AEFFE USA showroom will be open for business with deals on major Italian designers like Moschino, Ungaro, Pollini, and more. Expect savings of up to 70% off retail. Head all the way to the West side for Figue‘s Fall sample sale where you can find their signature resort looks and winter appropriate pieces. For some fun photo ops why not drop by Saks Fifth Avenue where you can meet Fendi‘s colorful mascots, the Fendirumi! Tuesday to Wednesday from 2pm to 7:30pm.

Starting Wednesday we have two major luxury designer sales that are an absolute must! Marc Jacobs returns for their biggest sample sale yet. Everything from RTW, footwear, handbags, accessories, and even beauty will be available at up to 80% off retail. There will also be menswear, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and childrenswear from Little Marc. Expect very long lines most of the day as the doors open to the public for the first time in almost two years. If you’re not completely broke after MJ then head over to Carven for their second-ever US sample sale. The French label is among the multitude of brands in the midst of creative director changes which should translate to some pretty amazing deals on past stock. You don’t want to miss this one! Those looking to save on current season merchandise should check out Helmut Lang sample sale at Chelsea Market where the discounts are very modest (60% off retail) but the merchandise comes from the newest collection.

On Thursday stock up on intimates, sleepwear, swim, and RTW at Eberjey. Expect savings of up to 70% off retail. Nili Lotan is also having her very own sample sale in SoHo but savings will be modest with discounts of 50%-60% off retail. Check out a multi-designer sample sale at Wooster St. featuring brands like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marni, Vetements, Isabel Marant, J.W. Anderson, and many more at up to 70% off. Sale will include both men’s and women’s apparel.

Finally on Friday things only get more intense with Paul Smith‘s semi-annual sample sale. Men’s and women’s RTW, shoes, bags, accessories, and a small selection of home goods will be available for up to 80% off retail. Check out my reports from the last two sales here and here. Also on Friday is the Staff USA sample sale featuring apparel and shoes by MM6, Martin Margiela, and DSquared but you may want to wait until the weekend for additional discounts to kick in. British shoe brand, Miista is back with their NYC sample sale and hipster approved footwear starting at $30.

This is a crazy amount of sales (and I don’t even list every single one mind you) to shop this week alone and things are only getting started 😱 Get ready for lots more to come over the next few weeks.
