A reader writes in about the Iisli sample sale in the Meatpacking District. She has but one complaint: "They have about four racks of current spring merchandise at 75% off retail, then a room with about 12 racks of actual samples. Pricing for the samples is a bit funny—some of them are $75 which makes them more expensive than the current store styles! Tops and skirts are in the $20-$30 range and some of the one-off sample dresses are cheaper. I got one dress for $20 and one dress for $25. There is a dressing room and the employees are very nice and helpful." [Racked Inbox]
