J.Mendel's sample sale is back next week for just two days. Just like the brand's previous sales, shoppers can expect to find 75% off retail prices on ready-to-wear, gowns, cocktail, accessories and holiday fur pieces.
No idea what to expect? While we haven't heard exact details this time around, we found high discounts on special production samples and one-off items at a sale back in March, like steep cuts on Manolo Blahnik shoes and fur offerings, which included fox fur trooper hats, fur coats and hooded mink vests.
If you want the first chance to shop it on Wednesday, October 21st, you'll need to make an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, where you'll get information about location and timing. Not the appointment type? The sale will be open for walk-ins on Thursday. Update: As of Wednesday at noon, the sale is open for walk-ins at 265 West 37th Street, 17th floor.
