With summer finally in sight, there’s a need for white and nautical pieces to get ready for that Hamptons lifestyle. Tess Giberson’s sample sale at the Crosby Street flagship has all that with big price reductions, with everything from comfy sweatshirts for lazing about your casual beach mansion to white pants for daytime errands in town.

The store is small and the samples—up to 75% off retail prices for similar stock items—on sale take up a majority of the floor with two long racks in the center. You've been warned: Most items are size 4, with 2s, 6s, and 8s scattered around. If you're a tried-and-true 4, you’re set; if you're unsure, there’s a dressing room to try things on as well.

Pants are all around $100 to $125, with plenty of white pairs on hand along with denim, track pants ($320) and leather leggings ($385, down from $1,295). There are also skirts, a few sizes of a denim number ($120), and a navy crochet skirt for $250 (down from $585).

A favorite jacket option on the rack includes a blazer with eyelet sleeves for $230. There's plenty of sweaters, with a reassembled-style sweatshirt in white or black for $97 (originally $325), and a blue owl-print sweatshirt dress for $80 (was $245). The wave collage sweatshirt goes for $140, down from $325.

Tees ran XS to XL, all for under $100. For dresses, the most discounted items were a Fair Isle dress for $225, an eyelet cotton ramie dress for $240, and a remixed combo dress for $240. And for a couple of unique finds, a cotton and linen trench is going for $305 (down from $765) perforated leather shorts in green or gray are $235, and a lone Mongolian lamb knit fur is $995 (was $2,180).

Everything here is clean and crisp, just like the color palette. The sizes and styles out are the full stock, so head over quickly, especially if you're after anything in the gallery above. The sale goes through Sunday—check out the full hours below.

Wednesday, April 15th through Sunday, April 19th. Wed—Fri 12pm—8pm; Sat 11am—7pm; Sun 12pm—6pm.
