Jodi Arnold (formerly MINT) sample sale

Update: I dropped by yesterday to check it out, and it looks like they are renting the Samples for (Eco)mpassion space. They gave me a list of retail prices (see below), and they are accurate. I'm trying to find out if they are doing additional discounting today (the last day). I'll keep you posted.

Update: A commenter noted that "the SAVVY sucks", and I know this is a general sentiment. I would advise you to do your research on actual in-the-store retail prices before heading in.

Savvy & Co is hosting a Jodi Arnold sample sale at a new NYC location. In addition to the sale, there will be some artsy-fartsy stuff like art, music, literature, and daily events (see schedule of sale info and events below).

Sample price points: leather jackets for $150 (retail $726)
Embellished Dresses-$125 (retail $390-470)
Plain Dresses-$99 (retail $280-390)
Sweaters-$65 ($250-360)
Tops-$75 (retail $240-320)
Bottoms-$50 (retail $250-390)
Leather Jackets-$150 (retail $750) SOLD OUT
Leather Skirts-$75 (retail $450) but I didn't see any more left

    Seriously, the Savvy SUCKS. They always rip you off. Prices can get lower, please.

    There's a Mens Suit sale at the Prada outlet store, at the River head outlet mall in Long Island ( Tanger). There have good sizes left too.. Around $200-$250.. Great price for Prada! :)

  3. Thanks for the intel, Fashionista! I wasn't aware there was a Prada outlet aside from Space at Woodbury Common. Looking at the Riverhead store directory, I can't seem to find it. Can you tell me the name of the store, or where in the shopping center it is located, and I'll post it up?

    Sorry Tina! Totally my bad... I meant Hugo Boss!
    I bought two suits for my hubby just this weekend... :)
    They also have Womens blouses and pants on Sale.
    I am a huge Prada fan, they have the best purses!

  5. Thank you! Will let everyone know :) I am a total Hugo Boss fiend!

  6. Fashionista!2/17/2010

    Oh anytime! I am heading back there this weekend, will keep you posted if I see anything else :)

    Loving your blog, I'm an addict for a "good buy"!

    Did you happen to check out the Tourneau sample sale? I didn't make it :(

  7. Thanks :) I appreciate that!

    Haha, I am TOTALLY an addict for a good buy! I just got a pair of Georgina Goodman platform sandals from YOOX for $75 :P And I *really* do not need more shoes.

    I didn't go to the Tourneau sale either-- trying to stay away from big ticket items (and fritter my money away $100 at a time instead)!

  8. Fashionista!2/17/2010

    Oh those are nice! I need to look for "Office" shoes actually, about to hit up yoox myslef and see what they have...

    That's smart, $100 tickets are much easier to justify!
