The Case of the Never-Ending Temperley Sample Sale

By our accounts, British fashion label Temperley has been hosting a sample sale on their S/S and Cruise collections continuously for the past four months at their showroom on the second floor of 453 Broome Street. Looking back through our records, we see that the sale was first listed on May 31st (40% off dresses, skirts, tops, pants and jackets). Then, again in June, when the discount rose to 60% off. In July, we visited the sale, finding the selection "pricey and plentiful." Too pricey, it would seem, to actually move the garments (at the time, we reported that skirts and tops were priced from $250 to $300, cocktail dresses around $600, and fancier cocktail dresses and leather were in the $1000 range).

So it isn't surprising that today, we received another release about a Temperley sample sale beginning tomorrow and running through Saturday. This time, the clothing is 70% off. Will that do the trick? Let's hope, as the time for donning Spring/Summer and Cruise garments is almost past.
