Perhaps spurred on by this morning's DailyCandy sample sale listing, Pipeline has gone and spilled the beans about the huge Lanvin sale happening next week. "Next Wednesday, March 18, from 10 a.m to 5 p.m, over 400 pieces from the storied French house will go on massive sale—we're talking 70% off or more. That means dresses starting at $325 (versus $1,500) and coats starting at $560 (versus $4,000). We can't remember the last time Lanvin had a sample sale, which means we've just hit shopping nirvana. It's guaranteed to be a madhouse scene, though, considering the sale's only for one day, but we're planning on camping out with our most fashionable sleeping bags." In all their excitement, they forget to mention the address: It is 230 Fifth Avenue. [Pipeline]
