Cozy Knits And Much More At Lafayette Warehouse Sale

UPDATE: Now extra 40% off sale prices!

Starting this Thursday Lafayette 148 will open its doors for the brand’s semi-annual warehouse sale. The label is synonymous with New York City fashion and no office attire is ever complete without a piece (or two) from Lafayette. This week’s sale is scheduled to run for two days, offering shoppers a chance to save up to 80% off retail on women’s cold weather essential and office friendly outfits. What truly separates the brand from the rest is it’s wide assortment of sizes that encompasses both Plus and Petite. Let’s face it you’ll be hard pressed to find anything larger than a 10 at most sample sales while Lafayette apparel goes up to 24W/3X! Stock up on everything from cozy winter sweaters to easy everyday styles with many items still selling at full price online and in stores.

I was invited to preview the sale earlier this week and I’m very happy to report that there was an abundant selection of $50 tops and bottoms, $65 sweaters and shirts, $90 dresses, $100-$300 outerwear, as well as specially marked items and categories. The sale offers a huge amount of merchandise, enough to take up two separate floors. We’ll start with the second (main) floor where you’ll find the bulk of the selection in sizes 0-18. For petites and plus sizes you should head up to the seventh floor, which is equally split between both categories. Outerwear is located right near the registers with prices starting at $100 for vests and silk coats and going up to $1,000 for long shearling coats. I spotted this fun checker pattern cape (photo #2) that’s sure to add some style to your look for just $100. Another highlight was a fur and suede belted vest (photo #32) for $200. Outerwear does tend to go quickly so make sure to visit on the first day for the best selection. Also prices went up by $5-$10 since the brand’s last sample sale in May.

Next up we have circular racks with leather and suede. Prices started at $100 for skirts and pants and went up to $350 for more elaborate jackets. These were mainly colorful options like green, yellow, red, turquoise but I did spot some black leather styles as well. My favorite finds were the knits. If you know me then you know how much I love a good turtleneck or a cozy sweater and I found both at the sale! Long sleeve and 3/4 sleeve tops were priced at $65 and included some nice turtleneck and sweater options. Racks are organized by color so it’s easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. Luxury knitwear was specially marked with prices ranging from $80 to as high as $750 for fur-trimmed cardigans (photo #30). Cashmere sweaters were priced $60-$200 depending on style while cashmere dresses, jackets, and skirts were $200. I linked up some stand out styles and you can see more in the photos that follow.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1478714817549?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

All the way in the back you’ll find a wide assortment of dresses from the Fall/Winter collections. There were some sparkly party dresses and a few leftovers from the Spring sale but for the most part the selection consisted of season appropriate styles in darker tones. Along the right wall stretched racks upon racks of pants all organized by size. If you’re petite like myself be sure to buy your pants on the seventh floor so you’ll save on alterations as most of these options had pretty long inseams. Along the opposite wall you’ll find all the short sleeve and sleeveless tops. I spotted silks, knits, and cotton styles.
The sale also offered a small selection of accessories like scarves and hats. Head to the small room by the coat check where you’ll find colorful fur collars, knit and fur-trimmed infinity scarves, and snoods, as well as big silk shawls. Prices ranged from $25 to $100. The cheapest item at the sale were these flower shaped beaded brooches for just $5. The seventh floor also has a small accessory section.
For specially marked items you’ll want to check out two sections. First there were $80 beaded numbers that included tops, skirts, and dresses. You can find the rack in between coats and jackets along the left wall, by the registers. There was also a full rack of overstock skirts (photo #47) for just $20 but only in a single style: greenish florals. Granted this isn’t as good of a deal like two years ago when they offered several racks of suede mini skirts for the same price but it’s still a nice bargain.
