Update: Even more markdowns! All denim and leather is now 50% off, as is ladies sportswear. Dresses, excluding those from the Richard Chai collab, are all $19, and all girls' coats are $59. Leather coats and all white coats are $25 off.
Be sure to leave your vegan friends at home for the Andrew Marc sample sale, where coats start at $59, and those with real fur—and there are a lot of them—start at just $90. The sale officially opens tomorrow, but we attended the preview this afternoon to scope out the deals.
After you make it inside (there's a mandatory coat and bag check), the best women's stock is located handily in the center aisle of the cavernous warehouse where the sale takes place. There, you'll find puffer coats ranging from $99 to $300, depending on length and whether the hoods have real or faux fur, as well as pea coats starting at $59, and leather jackets starting at $149.
You'll also find lots of pieces from Andrew Marc's collab with Richard Chai mixed in with the others, though prices are marked up accordingly, and are roughly double the price of the regular Andrew Marc stock.
As for sizes, expect lots of 2s, 4s, 10s, and a few 6s, though all sizes up to 12 are represented. There's even two racks for plus-size coats at center-right.
The men's section takes up most of the right half of the space and is equally stocked, with tons of leather jackets and super-warm wool coats starting at $99—so warm, in fact, that ladies who aren't averse to wearing menswear ought to give it a quick walkthrough.
Unless you're desperate for semi-boring workwear, don't bother with the dress selection to the left, which is ample but not particularly interesting. The athletic wear section, however, is worth the mini-trek to the far back of the space, where you'll find tops and pants all for around $18 to $22. The only accessories at the sale were small makeup bags for a meager $10 each.
No word on whether or not there will be further markdowns (we'll keep you posted if we hear anything), though there will be plenty of restocking throughout the sale. See the Dealfeed below for dates, hours, and location.
