News is trickling about about the Tory Burch sample sale underway on West 36th Street, and well, it isn't pretty. A tipster: "Who told Long Island ladies who lunch about the Tory Burch sample sale? I come to this every season and have never encountered a line so long! Pretty soon people at work will be noticing that I vanished....Wasn't this supposed to be an unadvertised advance opening? Boo!"
