Last summer, Steven Alan bummed a lot of people out with the announcement that their semi-annual sample sale would be online only. Fortunately, things have returned to normal this time around: On Wednesday, November 14th, the sale will re-open at the brand's showroom in Tribeca. And for those hoping to shop from their couch again, it'll also take place on the website.
The sale will run through Saturday, November 17th at 87 Franklin Street. Expect it to be particularly crowded, given the fact that it's been a full year since it was possible to shop the sale in person. That being said, you might want to brush up on some survival strategies to figure out the best way to handle the crowds, the abundance of merchandise, and the lack of fitting rooms.
