We stopped by the Lulu Frost sample sale this afternoon, taking place in the office where the jewelry designer just set up her first retail store. Walk through The Lulu Shop and the office to reach the sample sale in the back, which is set up as well as the full-priced merchandise but is now up to 80% off—but you'll have to head over before happy hour to take advantage, since the sale ends at 8pm tonight.
Prices here range from $15 to $225, but plenty of what we liked was priced at $75 or less. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings are each tagged with a colored sticker denoting its prices—though sometimes those stickers were so tiny that they were hard to find.
The more ornate pieces that the brand is known for had the higher price tags, but there were plenty of readily recognizable pieces for under three digits, like bold bangles for $45 and elaborate necklaces for $75. To get an idea of what you'll find (and how much you'll pay), scroll through the gallery above.
It's easy to miss the office entrance, but look for a sample sale sign on a non-descript door between the Brooks Brothers windows that face 20th Street. Staff was very helpful when we were there, offering jewelry trays to shoppers and verifying prices. Check out the Dealfeed below for more specifics about the address.
