The Fivestory Offsite sale returns to The Bowery Hotel today, and will continue on through Wednesday, January 21st. We checked out the VIP portion last night, and found tons of inventory to dig through. The discounts are color coded: items that are 60% off are marked with red dots, and items that are 80% off are marked with blue dots.

Similar to previous sales, this one is organized by category—with sections for menswear, womenswear, accessories, shoes, and children's clothing—and then further broken down by style. The racks are packed and there are a ton brands in the mix, like Alexander Wang, Peter Pilotto, Chloe, Carven, Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein, Thakoon, Preen, and Acne.

There's a good selection of luxurious wool and cashmere coats, including a navy blue Carven style for $396 (60% off), a red Preen coat for $366 (80% off) and a beige Narcisco Rodriguez design for $1,398 (60% off). A lot of the items are one-off, so make sure to go early to get the best selection. Sizing varies—we saw everything from extra small to extra large.

There are women's shoes stacked by the wall and near the center of the room. Some styles you'll find: Mark McNairy leather shoes for 80% off, Alexander Wang high-heeled ankle-strap sandals in maroon and black for $238 (60% off), Nina Ricci flats for $129 (80% off), Giambasttita leopard print flats for $306 (60% off) and sexy silver pumps from Anthony Vaccarello for $248 (60% off).

In the leather bag section by the cashier, we found two pony hair purses from Alexander Wang for $560 (60% off), as well as Valentino wallets ($158) and a large navy Valentino travel pouch for $318. There are also a few varieties of Hunting Season's python clutches, all at 60% off. There were no jewelry this time around.

Across from the cashier, there are bins full of men's printed t-shirts, sweaters and cashmere or wool scarves. Most of these items are 60% off.

In the menswear room, you'll find lots of coats, sweaters and pants, as well as a few button down shirts and some Bermuda shorts. Here we spotted brands like Maison Kitsuné, Ovada & Sons, Comme des Garcons, Wings and Horns, Jil Sander, Ten C and more.

For the stylish tots, there are five full racks of children's clothing to shop, from newborn styles to items for older kids. We spotted a cute white sweater from Chloe for $116 (60% off) and also a signature floral tank dress from Marni for $57.60. In the first room, you'll also find a large selection of shoes for toddlers as well as swimwear and other accessories for children.

We were told there would be no restocking. There is also a dressing room in the back for both men and women to try on clothes. See the Dealfeed below for more details.—Hsini
