The Tory Burch sale surprise-opened today at 2pm, which probably came as great news to the 20-strong line of diehards outside Clothingline a few hours earlier. This morning's preview revealed tons of stock in superb shape and a wide range of sizes—though prices still felt high.
Upon entering, you'll find a large wall of handbags, mostly in the $250 range, followed by a sea of size-organized clothing, starting at size 0 with size 14s along the far wall. Stock was similar among all sizes (modest, well-tailored, and very office-appropriate) with a heavy emphasis on sweaters, blouses, dresses, and trousers.
Prices are also handily displayed on posters: Tees and polos are the cheapest things you'll find, at $45, followed by tanks and short-sleeve tops ($85), long-sleeve blouses and long tunics ($95), non-sequined cardigans ($95), sweaters and sequined cardigans ($115), pants and skirts ($85), dresses ($150), evening gowns ($450), blazers and jackets ($195), coats ($225), and leather and suede ($250).
Only here for the ballet flats? Skip the front and head towards the back of the room and around the corner, where you'll find a glass case of all the shoe styles, followed by a separate room where sales associates will help you find your size. The six styles of ballet flats are all $150; shearling-lined boots and wedges are $165, booties are $200, and riding boots are $250.
As previously stated, all merchandise appears to be in mint condition, and staff says they'll be restocking daily. For directions, times, and dates, see the Dealfeed below.
