Weekend Sample Sales & Deals

Kate Lord

This pop-up devoted to fabulous indie labels ends this weekend, and the organizers just confirmed that pretty much everything has been marked down an additional 20-30 percent, so Kimberly Ovitz motorcycle jackets that were $625 are now $312, a Thakoon floral dress on sale for $549 (was $1445) will get an additional 30 percent off, and a Samantha Pleet skirt on sale for $100 (was $286) is now $70 with the additional discount. INVEN.TORY, 237 Lafayette Street, Friday November 13, 7AM-9PM; Now through Saturday November 21, 10AM-9PM; Sunday November 22, 10AM-5PM

The massive sale runs over four days at Steven Alan's Tribeca showroom, and the lineup of covetable pieces includes silk chemises by the Lake & Stars (were $170, now $60), chic knit dresses by Spring and Clifton (were $225, now $70), and cashmere cardigans by Demylee (were $260, now $90). The biggest draw of any Steven Alan sale, however, remains the eponymous label's slim-fitting button-downs: Men's shirts that were $168 are now $65, while women's shirts that were $148 are now $55.
