Luca Luca has extended their sample sale> through 6pm tomorrow, and Racked friend Nancy Brenner of Guerilla Shopper writes in to say that it's well worth the trip. "Three reasons to run to 19 West 36th today: First, $50 bargain boxes. Dug out a discounted emerald green top originally $1600, a skirt originally for $1400, now $50—this may be my all-time record for markdown on a single item. Call the Guinness Book of Records. Reason two: Extensive selection of other über-sleek pieces, all drool-worthy at less than a fifth of retail. Reason three: Last week's early-bird crowd is gone and you will be treated like a future Queen. Customer service does not top this at high-end retailers or boutiques." [Racked Inbox]
