As New York's seasoned shoppers know by this point, not all end-of-season sales are created equal. Lots of boutiques slash prices during this time of year to move fall and winter merchandise off the racks — typically in the neighborhood of 40% to 60% off — but places like Scoop NYC, Fivestory, and Otte up the ante with serious discounts more akin to sample sales. American Two Shot's end-of-season sale luckily falls in the latter camp, and it starts this Wednesday with discounts of up to 80% off retail prices.
Last time around, this so-called "extreme sale" had indie labels like Rachel Antonoff, Antipodium, Dusen Dusen, and Samantha Pleet alongside its in-house label, and much of it was under $100. This sale definitely favored the petite, too: extra-small sizes were in abundance, and sizes 8 through 12 were rare finds.
The sale will run through Monday, February 1st during regular store hours: 11am to 8pm, except on Sunday when it's 1pm to 7pm.
