Today, we stopped by 260 Sample Sale to assess everything on offer from sale held in the same venue two weeks ago, the layout was super-tidy, and gowns and cocktail dresses were definitely the main draw of the event. One aisle is totally dedicated to full-length evening gowns, and the rest of the space is jam-packed with glitzy little numbers and a few separates thrown in for flavor. Sizes run from 2 to 12, and prices are stellar.
Sale prices are based on the range of original prices. That means that dresses originally priced up to $215 are now $50; those originally priced between $215 and $399 are now $75; $400 to $599 dresses are $125; $600 to $849 items are $180; and anything previously priced from $850 to $1,200 are now $240. Separates originally priced below $350 are now $50, and everything originally $350 and up is now $80.
The overall scene is busy but not crazy crowded. There's a decent line for the fitting room, but when we stopped by around 11am, there was no line outside. See all the additional info in the dealfeed below.—Becca Endicott
