Once you come down from your Diptyque sample sale high on Friday afternoon, you have less than 24 hours to gather yourself for the Eileen Fisher sample sale, taking place at the brand's East Village boutique on Saturday and Sunday. You might be wondering why we're comparing the most epic candle sale of all time to a label you've probably stored in the back of your mind for when you reach "a certain age"—but have you seen their spring 2015 collection? It's as if The Row became affordable all of a sudden (and already established an NYC foothold).
This sale will consist of samples from the current spring collection, which is full of cropped pants, draping tops, and platform sandals, at 50% off. And based on the prices of the newest items, we're expecting most pieces that work for both the office and moonlighting as an Olsen to be well under the $200 price point. So be sure to earmark some extra cash for this sale before snatching up all the large Baies candles you can find.
Saturday, March 7th through Sunday, March 8th. Sat 11am—7pm, Sun 12pm—7pm. 314 E 9th St between First and Second Aves (212-529-5715).
