James Perse sample sale report

Update: forgot to add, size 2 is running thin, but they are restocking, so I'd go now if you have time to dig (or wear size 1,3, or 4), or show up first thing tomorrow morning.

All I can say is, OMG. This sale is all out insanity and awesome bundled into one. There is SO MUCH merchandise for women, a pretty good selection for men, and 2 racks of clothes for children.

What you'll find for women: tanks $18 (although the selection is VERY slim. I didn't even think to head there first, and it was ravaged), t-shirts $20-39, long sleeve t-shirts $25-39, long sleeve tops (a lot of overstock FW) $25-39, sweaters $59-129, those fleece jackets and hoodie pullovers from FW $59-129, lounge pants $49-59, canvas/cotton pants $59, wool wide-leg trousers $59, lounge shorts $59, button down long-sleeve shirts $59, maxi dresses $59+, sweaters $129, long tunics $59-129, overcoats $129+ ... basically, everything in the warehouse.

Although I didn't thoroughly browse the mens section, which was really calm compared to the chaos in womens, the selection looked pretty good, and there were a lot of men in the check-out line, which is a solid testament to the selection.

Original posting here, but it's in Chelsea Market (which is adding an Anthropologie!). Go go go.

    Great posting! Did u notice any women's shorts or non maxi dresses?

    Any skirts?

  3. There were shorts, both on the 'sample' rack as well as another rack that was completely longer loungey shorts and very short booty shorts in cotton canvas and loungey cotton :)

    There were also skirts (same locations). They were casual cotton ones - soft and stretchy.

    Price points also $59.

  4. I didn't see many non-maxi dresses, although they had some very long t-shirts which could have been t-shirt dresses, I suppose. The only other ones I saw were thin cashmere dresses with a cowl neck. Nothing else summery.

    Do you think they'll have price cuts over the weekend?

  6. I did ask that, and the cashier said he didn't think so. He thinks this is it for the weekend.

    It's the one who was looking for a dress. I bought 5 dresses! Including this one ($59)

  8. ^ Wow, I totally missed that! (surprising since I spent almost 2 hr there-- my arm was KILLING under the heap of clothes)

    LOL- My arms hurt today as well from being at the sale. I thought I was the only one.

    This is the one who bought the dresses. I'm thinking to go back Sunday at opening because I tried on the dress below but it was slightly too big so I'm hoping they restock it in the morning.
