The Frette sample sale is in full swing, and Sample Sally stopped by to check out what kind of deals are being offered on the brand's linens, bedding, loungewear, and more. She reports that "if you've got a king size bed, you'll do well here finding all sorts of patterns (solids & prints)." If you only have a queen size bed, well, the selection is a little more limited for you.
As far as pricing is concerned, the Frette Edmond duvet cover/comforters are going for $600, the light quilts/bedcovers are $295, the bedset/duvet covers are $195, throws are $100, top sheets are $95, bottom fitted sheets are $65, decorative cushions are $50, and shams are $25. Plain bedsets, which include flat sheets, fitted sheets, and a standard pillow, begin at $100 for a full size and $249 for queen. If you're looking for something more extravagant than shams and sheets, though, she also spotted mink fur decorative pillows for $1,500.
As for the other odds and ends, wash cloths are $5, hand towels are going for $10, and bath towels are $30. Linen napkins are 4 for $20, leather placemats are $45, and leather iPhone cases are $50 (iPad cases are $100.) Need a cashmere robe? That'll set you back $300. Nightgowns, pajamas, or robes that aren't cashmere? $90. If you want to complete the look, you can pick up a pair of slippers for $50. The sale ends on Saturday, and you can check out all the details here.
