If you're a sample sale aficionado or a Rebecca Minkoff fan, this news is for you — Rebecca Minkoff's semi-annual sample sale is happening next week in four major cities. So if you live in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, or Los Angeles, it's time to get your game face on, because this one's going to be big.
The sale will run from Monday, May 8 to Monday, May 15 (except in NYC, where the sale will close up shop on Sunday, May 13). Attendees will be clamoring for ready-to-wear clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories for up to — get this — 70 percent off. (Yes, seventy.)
This is some major savings on designer merch that's normally a splurge for most people, so expect some, um, strong-willed shoppers. There's something about crazy discounts at sample sales that brings out people's aggressive side, but there's nothing that can soothe you after a high-energy sample sale like the satisfaction of a steal (not literally, but you know what I mean).
Here are the deets on each of the four sample sales. The times vary from city to city, but on average, it seems like they'll go from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (give or take an hour).
