Sample sale season is still a few moths away, but things are starting to amp up a bit this month. Highlights this week include Club Monaco, which has a reputation for being pretty cheap and very crowded. There's also Cosabella, which started yesterday, plus Monika Chiang, J. Mendel, and L.K.Bennett.
See details for them all after the jump, and let us know in the comments if you score anything worth bragging about. Or, if you didn't.
