A quick note from a reader on the VPL sale taking place through Saturday on West 38th Street: "I just returned from the VPL sale and there’s a fair amount of stock in a really small space. Prices are still pretty high – ex. $270 for a silk jumpsuit, $145 for a sleeveless sweater. I asked the salesgirl about reductions and she said whatever is left will be reduced on Saturday. Didn’t make it across the hall to Julie Haus, but overheard other girls saying that most dresses were $70 and sweaters were $50." [Racked Inbox]
