If you were planning to be one of the first in line at the Veda sample sale when the doors open on Thursday, adjust your schedule now. Creative director and leather jacket expert Lyndsey Butler is granting Racked readers access to her label's VIP shopping hours on Wednesday, April 13th from 6pm to 8pm to get first dibs on ready-to-wear and outerwear that's up to 90% off retail prices.
Wednesday night will be the only time that you'll be able to get the popular Maximum jacket for $425 — a savings of more than $500 off retail. If that's still a little high for your budget, we've spotted lightweight jacket samples in the past that hover around $250, and apparel samples are priced as low as $25. Plus, while both cash and credit are accepted here, you'll get a discount if you pay with cash.
Bing Bang jewelry will once again make an appearance at this sale, and this time it'll be joined by Negative Underwear. Check it all out at the brand's Canal Street studios — details on the sale's full run are in the Dealfeed below. And if you're unable to make it downtown before Sunday, you can find select sample sale styles (and prices, most importantly) available online.
