Welcome to Racked's weekly agenda: a rundown of the best sales, store events, pop-up shops, and more over the next seven days. This week is a biggie, with the Proenza Schouler sample sale, the opening of Dover Street Market New York, and Brooklyn's first Whole Foods Market. Click through for the best shopping events this week.
Here comes the Vera Wang Bridal sale. Score markdowns on Vera's coveted bridalwear through Wednesday at 265 W. 37th Street.
Brooklyn gets its first Whole Foods Market today! The store opens in Gowanus at the catchy intersection of Third Street and Third Avenue at 9am. The first 250 shoppers will score a canvas totebag, and there will be samples, sales, giveaways, and music all day.
The joint Equipment, Current/Elliot, Joie stock sale returns to 260 Sample Sale. Last season's edition of this fan favorite was rich with blouses, denim, and other separates for $50 and under, and leather pieces were $100 to $150. This is the unofficial restock-your-wardrobe sale.
Aloha Rag is cleaning out its covetable stock of Carven, Acne, Band of Outsiders, Sacai Luck, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Rag & Bone, Saturdays, Jil Sander, Nike, Common Projects, Sarti, and more with up to 90% off, starting Wednesday and running through Sunday (probably best to head to this one early). Full detail are in the Dealfeed.
Word on the street is that Thursday will be Proenza Schouler's seasonal sample sale, running for one day only at 76 Mercer Street. Prices are said to start at just $65. Here's what we found at the last sale.
Feltraiger is leaving the Lower East Side in exchange for—wait for it—Williamsburg. They are hosting a big moving sale, with up to 75% off at the Allen Street store through December 24th. On Thursday, they'll throw a moving party starting at 8pm.
Vince opens the doors to their fifth NYC store Thursday, this time in Columbus Circle. Both men's and women's collections will be available.
She's finally here: Dover Street Market New York opens the doors to its seven stories of Rei Kawakubo-approved goodness at 11am sharp. Located at 160 Lexington Avenue, everyone's ready for this groundbreaking shop to change the face of Kips Bay—gain extreme New York bragging rights by saying you were there from the beginning (plus, there will probably be fantastic people watching).
