Since the city is hunkering down for yet another round of snow and all-around frigid temps, the Lewis Cho semi-annual warehouse sale comes at an opportune time. The sale, featuring mostly overstock and a few samples here and there, offers up to 80% off of fall and winter knit, jersey, silk and wool pieces.
Since it's cold outside, we found ourselves gravitating toward the sweaters and cardies ($60 ) and fine wool and sweater dresses ($79 to $80). Standouts included an adorable cropped Fair Isle wool and acrylic blend sweater and a similar cropped cardigan version. The wool and knit dresses are plentiful, too, like, a fitted, long sleeve Erin Fair Isle (now $70 and originally $219), an olive green pleated ruffle frock, a cute navy short sleeve day-dress with a dart and single silver button and a navy and black batwing number.
There are also lots of jersey dresses (we liked the cut out shoulder frocks in navy, black and grey) in earthy solids and stripes for $40 and $50 and a few silky numbers tucked into the racks for $75 each.
Also look out for a small selection of one-off samples mixed into the racks, including a pair of black leather shorts for $80, a couple slouchy soft cropped sweatpants for $40 each, and sexy draped jersey skirts for $20 each. There were a few outerwear styles—we liked the army green field coat with girlie drawstring waist and pleated collar details ($175).
The sizing skews mostly small and medium, although there are a few larges mixed in. There are also additional sizes in the back, so check with designer Annie Lewis, who is manning the sale. The sample pricing is random, too, so make sure to double check with Annie. There is a fitting room on site and cash and credit are both accepted.
