Update: There is NO LANVIN SALE. Racked.com has done some investigatory journalism and concludes (with Lanvin's official PR weighing in) that reports of this too-good-to-be-true sale are FALSE.
Daily Candy has just published some fabulous sample sales. I am so bummed that I'll be in San Francisco during the Lanvin and Me&Ro ones! Sob.
