- 1. Pricing isn't dirt cheap, but it is still the lowest you'll find on the brand.
- 2. There is a ton of inventory in all sizes (XS/0 through L/12) and styles. If there is a Tibi piece from the last calendar year you've had your eye on, you'll probably find it here (including Fall 2013).
- 3. There is a good selection of true samples, including production pieces and runway pieces. This morning there were six large boxes brimming with samples, with another four boxes sitting nearby, not yet opened.
- Sample diggers.
- 4. Shoes are also plentiful in styles and sizes. Current season styles are included, as are some sandals.
- So much more where this came from.
- Shoes in quantity.
- 5. Penguin beanies with purchases over $500. Nuff said.
- 6. The line to pay was long and slow.
- Table of folded pants.
- Tables and tables of knits.
- Rows and rows of dresses, tops, skirts, blazers, and outerwear.
The Tibi sample sale opened to friends and family this morning before opening to the public at noon. Inside the large Soho space, shoppers were greeted with racks and racks of current and past merchandise in all sizes. An equally large assortment of footwear options and an impressive array of samples round out the offerings at the brand's semi-annual sample sale.
Click through for full details on pricing, as well as some images of what to expect. At the last sample sale, the brand restocked consistently, ran some Twitter promos, and slashed prices—no word on any of that this time around, but we'll keep you posted.
Update we wish we'd known before checking out: Gilt City is selling merchandise credit half off for the sample sale. That's $50 for $100 to shop the sale, or $100 for $200.
