Our full report from inside the Club Monaco sample sale should be ready soon, but in the meantime, let's examine what Mizhattan found when she stopped by yesterday afternoon. Turns out that the employee-only portion of the sale opened to the public earlier than expected, so she was able to browse the deals before today's crowd. Her big takeaway: The prices are insane. How insane? Witness:
Skirts & shorts were only $10. Vests, pants, sweaters, and blouses were $15. Blazers & jackets were $20. You can't get any better than that! Just remember that there is a give & take when it comes to low prices. Some items were damaged while others has the word 'SAMPLE' written in marker.The walk over to the building is long and hot, the wait is grueling (as of this writing there are still over a hundred people in line), and you're going to have to work to find pristine pieces, but for $10 shorts, it might all be worth it.
