BI is promising a fall sample sale of epic proportions to coincide with the DUMBO Arts Festival this weekend. Everyday gear for the casual urbanite will be discounted to kickstart your fall shopping. 20 Jay Street: September 24-25; Friday, 12-9pm; Saturday, 12-7pm.
Here's one for the boys: Current and archival pieces in the designer's signature snazzed-out classic style are marked down up to 70 percent off through tomorrow--think dress shirts for a cool $80-$100, sweaters between $100-$150 and outerwear from $175. 35 Howard Street, #4: September 24-25; 12-6pm.
Dolce Vita sale has some great prices going on, with boots starting at $49, flats and oxfords reduced to $39 and sandals slashed to just $19, plus clothing from the eponymous label, as well as Mara Hoffman and more from a mere $20. 156 Ludlow Street: September 24-26; Friday, 5-8pm; Saturday-Sunday, 10am-6pm.
SILVER LINING OPTICIANS
Silver Lining is moving, so to celebrate, the glasses and sunnies hotspot is clearing out its old digs with a sale. Swing by before they vacate to get 50 percent off select lenses and brands. 100 Thompson Street: Through September 26.
THE BRIDAL WAREHOUSE
Brides-to-be have a massive sale on their hands. The BW has in-stock gowns for the bride and her maids from Priscilla of Boston, Platinum, Melissa Sweet and more at sweetly discounted prices. Chelsea Market, 75 Ninth Avenue: September 24-26; Friday-Saturday, 10am-7pm; Sunday 10am-5pm.
Though reviews on this markdown event have been rather tepid (our crackerjack reporters have been on-site this week), if you're still pining for Hermes accessories at reduced prices, there's still a chance to brave the storm through the weekend. Soiffer Haskin, 317 W. 33rd Street: Through September 26, Friday-Saturday 9am-6pm, Sunday 1-5pm.
STOOPENDOUS COMMUNITY-WIDE STOOP SALE
The Brooklyn Heights Association is turning the neighborhood into one big stoop sale (you can participate with some sidewalk if you haven't got a stoop)--a truly interactive sale option this weekend. With the Atlantic Antic happening on the same day, eager pedestrians should be out in droves. You can register your address with an overview of what you have to sell, or just head over for a stroll.
