Unwind from your first full week of 2016 with discounted retail therapy at sample sales. Though there's only four events taking place over the next two days, they cover a broad range of categories, from runway-worthy dresses and separates and the lacy garments to wear underneath them to cult beauty and fancy home goods.
Get your Korean beauty fix at Jnklee's Chinatown sample sale. Prices are up to 70% off on all the beauty and skincare offerings at the 2 East Broadway location. The sale ends Sunday and be sure to prep for a line, because the shop is pretty small.
Have the itch to redecorate? Give in to your inner interior designer and make your way to the Jay Strongwater sample sale at Metropolitan Pavilion, ending this Saturday. Shop for elegant vases, jeweled frames, and ornate glass ornaments, and more.
Saturday's the only day this weekend that you can shop Marissa Webb's sample sale with discounted apparel from resort 2015 and spring 2015, as well as one-of-a-kind runway sample pieces from various seasons. Head to the 60-62 East 11th St location this Friday through Saturday and start planning those Instagram posts.
And Sunday's the only day this weekend that you can shop the Kiki de Montparnasse sample sale — because that's when it starts. This is a continuation of the brand's moving sale (it's going from Soho to Tribeca), so let's hope we'll see lots of discounted samples and archived pieces.
Check out our sample sales calendar for more information on when and where each of these sales are taking place throughout the weekend.
