One of the most anticipated sample sales of the season once again hits us pretty early on in November: Rebecca Minkoff. The brand announced that it's returning to 260 Fifth Avenue beginning Monday, November 9th at 11am and running through that Saturday. The semi-annual favorite always draws huge crowds for its discounts of up to 70% off retail prices on ready-to-wear, shoes, and a rainbow of bags (oh, the bags) in various sizes, so plan your attack accordingly.
Get a taste of what you'll find in the gallery above — many of these items aren't currently available on the brand's online sale, so you'll only find them this cheap here (and in LA, since their sample sale takes place at the same time). Sale prices weren't provided for every item , but it's probably a safe bet that you'll pay about the same amount for bags as last time, where discounts were set based on a range of original prices. That would make Mini MACs and Mini 5 Zips $125 (from $195) and the larger Military bucket bag $185 (from $345). Clothing was priced as marked, and in the shoe department, boots were $100 and flats were just $50.
A selection of small leather goods, jewelry, and men's Ben Minkoff bags will be available, too, and definitely don't overlook the $50 sample table (including the slight damages these bags inevitably have). And if you're not keen on fighting the opening day crowds, know that we found a comparable amount of bags later in the week during the spring sale. Check out the Dealfeed below for more details.
