Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

April showers don't only bring May flowers—they also bring a shit-ton of sample sales. If you're in the market for shoes, this month's calendar includes both Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin. Need a new bag? Stop by Rebecca Minkoff or Nancy Gonzalez. And if you're just looking to replenish your wardrobe, the Comme des Garçons, Theory and Tibi sales are all taking place this month.

We'll be updating this list as more come in, so keep checking back for the most up-to-date information. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments below and we'll add it to the lineup.
