Update: Markdowns arrived Thursday morning! Original prices are below.
Things seemed to have calmed down quite a bit since the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale kicked off on Monday (blame the absence of those $20 sample bags), but don't be fooled—markdowns are coming within the next two days, and with markdowns comes fiendish crowds.
As for stock, staff says that what's out on the tables is pretty much it, though "what's out on the tables" is still an insane amount of bags. Prices are the same as we reported on Monday (with the exception of clothes—we'll get there), and are based off of the original retail prices (see the chart in the gallery above for reference). Markdowns will be arriving either tomorrow or Friday before the sale wraps up Saturday, so it's worth a lunchtime peek on those days if you're able to sneak out of work.
Upon entering, you'll still find the same sea of colorful, smallish cross-body bags, most going for $125. Moving through, you'll find basic totes ($135), and bigger black bags ($215), with the most expensive styles going for either $305 or $405.
In the back, there's a small section for $50 loafers, and to the right, the rest of the shoes, all priced between $125 and $185. Ranging from booties to oxfords to chunky heels, the shoe selection is great—especially for those with larger-sized feet.
The diminished clothing section, which was already small to begin with and is still being largely ignored, is the only part of the sale that has already seen markdowns—leather is now $300, dresses are $100, skirts are $50, coats and jackets are $200, and tops and sweaters are $75. There are also four bins near the shoes full of cute sweaters, all between $125 and $165.
The best part about the Rebecca Minkoff sale, however? A "call me" note from one mysterious "Vincent" that had been left inside a zippered clutch that we just happened to open. For hours, location, and more info, see the Dealfeed below.
