Here's more info on the Ippolita sample sale, which had a two-hour wait on Saturday. Overall, the pricing is as follows: "A majority of items are 65% off but there was a small selection of jewelry for 70% off. The assortment in the higher discount category was so undesirable that it's better just ignore the whole category. The newest Ippolita designs were discounted 50% off." [Madison Avenue Spy]
