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.

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's highlights include the Theory/Helmut Lang sample sale at Clothingline, the opening of Kiehl's first store in Brooklyn, and H&M's David Beckham Super Bowl takeover in Times Square. Click through to see more info on all of those, plus a few more worthwhile events.

The joint Theory/Helmut Lang sample sale kicks off at Clothingline today, with deep discounts on "slightly irregulars" and samples from both brands. The Theory selection will include both men's and women's merchandise; details here.

H&M's new Times Square store will transform into a "Fashion Meets Football" palooza today, in honor of 1. the Super Bowl and 2. but really, those Daivd Beckham underwear ads. There will be an astroturf lounge, lots of giveaways, a digital field goal, a virtual runway, and the chance to vote on whether or not the Beckham "covered" or "uncovered" ad should air during the big game. Not to tell you what to do or anything, but please—vote uncovered.

The Kathryn Amberleigh showroom is kicking off a special sample sale today, where shoes will be priced at $10, $20, $30, and $50. The sale runs through February 3rd, but at those prices, we recommend shopping it early. See the dealfeed here for hours and the address.***

In anticipation of the Super Bowl, Nike has set up a Hall of Innovation at Moynihan Station in Midtown. There will be a mobile truck selling Nike gear, and special events with Nike designers and athletes. Stay up-to-date will all the happenings via the brand's Twitter.

The very first Kiehls' in Brooklyn opens today at 124 Montague Street, with an opening-day party that starts at 4pm. Swing by for drinks and treats from Brooklyn-based companies, a DJ, and a skate clinic by Homage Brooklyn Skate Shop & Sake Academy.

***Update: We found out after our contributor went to check out the sale that it had been pushed back a day due to "technical difficulties." Of course, had we had this information earlier we would have updated the Dealfeed and two posts it's included in. We apologize for not catching it in the comments section in time (we're a small team and unfortunately can't read all of them right away) and to anyone who went out in the cold to check it out.
