Courtshop is back at it this winter with another denim sample sale, so we headed to the Nolita boutique (it's taking place in Williamsburg and online, too) when the doors opened at 11am to get the scoop on the deals. The entire shop is on sale — all full-priced merchandise is 20% off — but the actual sample sale merchandise was in the center of the store.
There was plenty of sample denim to choose from in a wide range of cuts and washes. (all $60). We spotted the Hannah jeans with snake-print pocket detailing in a skinny silhouette. In the relaxed jeans department, we came across the Daria with subtle seam work across the knees in the orchard wash. There were both high-waisted and mid-rise styles in so many washes.
In the back of the store, we found a few denim jackets (all $45) along with a couple of tops ($45) and dresses ($55). The Tessa top was a favorite with both shoppers and the staff — it has a v-neck front with rope lacing. In the back, we also found six different washes and styles of shorts, including high-waisted ones with pinstripes, frayed Tyler shorts, and the destroyed Jordan shorts ($45). Check out the gallery for more images.
All regular-priced items are an additional 20% off during the sample sale, and what you'll pay is written in red on the price tag. We found a funky, shagged jacket from Cleobella ($93) and a thick quilted Courtshop jacket ($130) in the mix. All the jewelry and accessories, all created by local artisans, also had the same discount.
We found the pricing was a little confusing at times, but the sales associate are more than willing to answer any questions. There were fitting rooms, and additional sizes were available in most styles if you're not seeing what you're looking for on the racks. Check the Dealfeed below for more info.
