Granted that this store next to the Sunglass Hut on Bleecker has sales all the time, but they usually cower around 30% off. Walking past last night, as we spied on the Black Fleece space, we noticed that their sale has reached 70% off, bringing bags originally priced at $500-600 down to $198.
Of course this gets us thinking; is Verve in trouble? Will this be the new Marc Jacobs space even though it's a few blocks down from his other stores? Will they bring Condomania back, please? While you're in there shopping the Hayden-Harnett, Cynthia Rowley, and Orla Kiely on sale, see if you pick up on any juicy bits of info for us.
