Only in fantasies do Lanvin sample sales exist, you've probably thought to yourself more than once. As it turns out, they're a real thing—but only to a select few. Mizhattan was able to finagle her way into the invite-only Midtown sale (she tells you how you can, too) and found discounts of 80% off on apparel, shoes, and a dwindling number of handbags. This sale runs through Saturday, so sneak in if you dare—or check out the number of public sales going on this week in our link below.
