Loeffler Randall's fall sample sale—that fever dream of $150 Rider satchels and endless rows of deeply discounted booties hanging neatly in clear plastic bags—isn't happening this year. Yesterday, the accessories brand sent around a newsletter innocently titled "Enjoy 20% Off," but that markdown comes with a catch—at the bottom of the email was a note that read, "As a special thanks to all of our friends, family, and followers, we've added all new styles and restocked sold out sizes online instead of holding a fall sample sale."
The discount—which you get by entering 'IMAFRIEND' at checkout on the LR website—runs through Sunday, October 19th, and is somewhat of a consolation for our dashed dream of buying half-price Tamsin pumps.
