SCANDALE! What's this? French shoe god Robert Clergerie is having a sample sale? Yes, and it's the first in his company's nearly 30-year history. Pumps, boots and other styles that usually make a $500-$1000-sized hole in your wallet can be yours for a C note and up. 5/15-16, 10:30AM-5:30PM. 19 E. 62nd St., at 5th Avenue (212-207-8600).
IN PRACTICE: Does anyone do sexy, understated, slightly mannish tailored classics better than Theory? If so, we haven't heard about it. Starting tomorrow, these last-forever pieces for women get the sample-sale treatment; expect prices as low as $50-75, with dresses and pants under $100 and blazers not much more than that. 5/16-21 (call for hours); 261 W. 36th Street (not 26th, as we previously reported) at Seventh Avenue, 2nd fl.; (212) 947-8748.
ROK OUT: Looking effortlessly chic is about to take a lot less effort: Starting today, stock up on floaty bohemian pieces from LaROK at the semi-annual sample sale in SoHo, where merchandise will be marked down 90% -- that's nine-zero -- below retail (dresses at $40, skirts at $20, that kind of thing). 5/15-17 (call for hours); 72 Wooster Street at Spring Street, (212) 388-0339.
