Clothingline's Club Monaco sample sale opened this morning to a big crowd despite the frigid weather. All items are under $130, and the sale is about 75% women's and 25% men's, with prices ranging from $5 (socks) to $129 (leather, fur). All sizes are present, so hopefully you know how Club Monaco fits. If not, you're out of luck: no try-ons allowed.
Update: Price reductions have hit select items.
There isn't much leather or suede, but we did find some furry vests and combo leather jackets for $129. In the outerwear section, we spotted fitted peacoats, long overcoats, and color-block car coats, all for $129. There's a surprisingly large number of dresses spread through out the entire sale, which includes everything from lightweight maxi dresses to slim fitting wool shifts for $40.
Cashmere sweaters are $60, and other sweaters and sweatshirts are priced at $30. Pants, from fitted sweats to embroidered cigarette styles, are all $30. A slew of skirts ranging in length are priced at $25. Shirts and blouses are going for $30, embellished tees and tanks are $20, and basic tees and tanks are only $10.
There also isn't a lot of leather or suede to choose from, but there are plenty of outerwear options. We saw some black leather zip-up jackets, quilted barn coats, zip-up rain jackets, and heavy duty insulted parkas with removable lining, all for $129. Dressier blazers and casual sport coats are also $129.
There are a couple of rounders with suit options that would total $189 ($129 for the jacket, $60 for the pants). Other pants include jeans, graphic khakis, and super sleek silk dress pants, all for $60. In knits, we saw a lot of sweaters and sweatshirts that are currently on the sale racks in stores, for only $30. There's a large selection of button ups for $30, and basic tees and polos are $10. Shorts are swimsuits are $20.
Bins of jewelry are $15, and boxes filled with belts, scarves, gloves, and hats are going for $10. There are jewel-encrusted clutches, unisex iPad cases, and portfolios for $30. There are a few leather bags in the mix for $50, but no shoes.
There is a coat check, and it's credit card only. There's more merchandise in the back for both sexes that'll be restocked throughout the sale. Triple check your items, as there were some damages and everything's final sale.
