No doubt, Olivia Palermo has become the unofficial face of Tibi—sporting the brand everywhere from award shows to movie screenings. Well, you're in luck, kids: Two styles previously worn on the back of the fashion icon and star of The City are available at the brand's sample sale at the Happy Monkey Studio on West 36th Street.
First up: the striped peplum jacket she wore in the front row of the Tibi Fall 2012 runway show back in February. That's clearly a fan favorite, since both Palermo and Hanneli Mustaparta were photographed in the piece just seats away from each other. Check this photo to spark your memory.
Up next: the cheetah coat she chose to wear on the night of the Bloglovin' awards. Since only a few of this item (along with the peplum jacket) remain, it's best to arrive early if you plan on grabbing them off the racks.
In fact, most of the merchandise is expected to sell out quickly. At up to 70% off retail prices, coats and long dresses are $200, jackets and day dresses are $150, cocktail dresses are $175, knits are $90, pants and tops are $75, skirts are $65, and shoes are $50. Also on the list are bathing suits for $20 and trust us, there were lots of them. By the looks of the huge boxes divided by size, we'd advise you to mentally prepare for a digging challenge.
While all of the aforementioned are clear winners, don't miss out on the floral printed tops from their spring collection and the color-blocked skirts and shirtdresses that come in both black/blue and pale pink/mint green combos.
The sale runs from 12pm to 7pm today, from 10am to 7pm tomorrow, and from 10am to 3pm on Thursday. If you can't make it, not to worry. The sale continues online at Tibi.com from May 23 to May 28.
