Update: the sale was surprisingly good. Tons of leather bags - little pouches, shoulder bags, messenger bags, priced around 50% off. 2 racks of womens clothing at 70% off (tops $25-40, thin cotton sundresses $45), and coats! I got a lightweight double-breasted trench for $55 (retail $400) and they had leather jackets for $395 (retail unknown). There is also a row of comfy armchairs for those less interested in shopping (ahem, husbands and boyfriends). It wasn't crowded, and I didn't have to wait for a dressing room. The racks are short on small sizes, but the sales reps are really happy to help you find stuff. Sale ends tomorrow.
