The Joie, Equipment and Current/Elliott sample sale's first day was a total success, as almost half of the merchandise has been snatched up. When we came back this morning to check on the inventory, we were amazed to see some of the racks were completely empty and gone. Racks of Equipment blouses and sweaters that were two-levels deep yesterday are now down to one. The racks of Soft Joie are gone, and the racks in the back of Joie dresses and bottoms are also gone, and the leftovers have been merged together.
We were told that there was some restocking last night as well as some this morning on the leather pants and Current/Elliott denim. There was no restocking of silk tops or blouses, leather shorts, or jackets for today.
Good news, though! The Equipment watches (in stainless steel or plastic), which were priced at $75, $85 and $95, have all been marked down to a $50. There are still a bunch left beside the cashiers.
There's still a fair amount of Current/Elliott denim to shop, ranging from size 23 to 32, with size 27 being the most abundant. Since most pants are priced at $41, it's still worth a look. There's also a decent selection of shorts and skirts from Current/Elliott and Joie, perfect for the hot weekend ahead. We also spotted a few sample pieces on the racks.
Blazers and jackets have been reduced to one rack, and there are a couple of Joie wool/faux fur coats and Equipment blue striped blazers left. The cobalt blazers we had our eye on yesterday are all gone. We only saw a couple of Joie leather jackets (see photo gallery) left on the racks, and they will no doubt be snatched up fast. No sizes were marked on them, but they looked like they were extra smalls.
Men's stock looked almost the same, but less stuffed. We saw some nice Current/Elliott leather jackets and soft denim, and two racks of Equipment long sleeve button-down shirts.
The sale runs through Saturday, and we're curious to see if the stock will last until the weekend. Stay tuned for news about any possible markdowns.—Hsini
