We stopped by day two of the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale today to see what's left, what's running low, and what's worth waiting in line for. Luckily, most big-ticket items are still plentiful, although the selection of smaller accessories, like iPhone cases and coin purses, is pretty picked over.
Tables throughout the space at 260 Fifth Avenue hold the label's coveted handbags, which are still available in massive quantities. We saw almost an entire table full of the Mini 5-Zips in at least seven different colors, including both neons and neutrals, and even more of the Mini M.A.C bags in several different colors and materials.
The Quilted Mini Affair bags are still available, but there aren't quite as many as there were yesterday and most of them are in neutral shades like white and grey. The same goes for the larger M.A.B and Perry totes, which we saw mostly in grey, tan, and navy. Luckily, we saw employees bringing out boxes to restock the bag selection throughout our visit, so it's possible that more styles and colors will be added as the week continues.
The clothing section looks basically untouched and is definitely worth checking out: all samples—and there are still several left—are $100, and the rest of the ready-to-wear is an extra 25% off the sale price. We saw lots of summery dresses, tank tops, and shorts. Sizing, however, is fairly limited— we didn't see anything larger than an 8.
The shoe selection is more picked over, with several styles sold out in sizes 7 and 8.There will be no more restocking of footwear, so what's left is all there is—if you're looking for shoes, we recommend heading to the sale as soon as possible.
iPhone and iPad cases, wallets, and the M.A.B makeup bags are running fairly low as well. If you have a specific style in mind, there's a big chance it's sold out: this section was definitely hit the hardest.
As of now there's no word on whether or not there will be any further markdowns, but keep checking back for updates. The sale runs through Saturday, May 10th at 260 Fifth Avenue. See the dealfeed below for hours.—Gillian Fuller
