Don't count out the last few days of the month as you're gearing up for April's major sample sales from Oscar de la Renta, Rachel Zoe, Rent the Runway, Thakoon, and Elie Tahari — there are still viable options to shop in March, specifically the following fantastic four:
Andrea Lieberman's ready-to-wear line has long been a favorite of our sister site in LA, who noted that its last sample sale out there was full of Felicity-worthy sweaters, fall knits, luxe leather bags, and so much more that was priced at $150, as well as basic tee shirts for $15 and dresses for $40. We'll see what the Chelsea Market version has in stock when the doors open tomorrow.
Jewelry fans will be pleased to know that BaubleBar isn't the only accessory sale where you can blow money fast. David Yurman's sample sale will start on Thursday, and if it's anything like the last one, expect a completely civilized scene in Chelsea. There, silver rings started at $180 and gold rings started at $400, while men's dog tags were priced between $300 and $600.
When this Soho sale starts tomorrow, we're hoping to see more leather jackets and outerwear at the same good prices — only $295 for both men's and women's styles. Handbags provided the biggest bang for your buck at the brand's last sale, where shelves of styles embellished with fringe, studs, and buckles were all just $65.
At the last sale for this local line known for its "nail rings," the signature pieces were priced between $90 and $104 — a steal for an item that Beyoncé once had customized with diamonds, no less. Median rings that rest in your "finger cleavage" were all around $95, while "handlets" (which wrap like a bracelet around the top of your hand) ran between $150 and $350.
