Ready your wallets, because October 22nd is going to be a big day for sample sales. Mizhattan reports that The Row's annual sample sale is returning that day and running through Saturday, which is the same time frame as the Hermès sale. It also overlaps with the sample sale for Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's contemporary brand, Elizabeth and James, which begins on the 20th.
At this event last year, we found deep discounts of 70% apparel and 60% off handbags, which didn't necessarily translate to crazy-low prices.

You can expect to find offerings from this season's collection with previous spring and resort collections mixed in, plus a limited variety of cold-weather items.
