People seem to love asking about sample sales, so here goes -- a bird's eye review of the Pedder and luxury cashmere sales happening this week.
I previewed the cashmere sale tonight, which is probably of more interest to most people since we're on the cusp of winter and sweaters are starting to seem oh-so-very necessary. Expect lots of basics -- cardigans, sweaters, tops and a handful of sweater dresses for women. There's also some jackets (down, wool, etc) and a small batch of vests, capes and shrugs. All in super practical colours: black, grey, nude, pink... Some men's, including sweaters, jackets and cardis mainly. Sizing pretty varied and I guess stuff is stretchy. This is where to go to stock up on winter basics.
Important note about address: the address is in Cat Street Galleries (mall-slash-office building) on Lok Ku Road near Pantry Magic... NOT near THE Cat Street Gallery on Hollywood Road. Different structures. Who knew. Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
I haven't gone to Pedder, but a fellow Shopaholics Anonymous member did, and she reported it's about half the size of the regular Pedder sale in Times Square. Besides shoes, there's a smattering of racks of clothes featuring Carven, J Brand, etc, and limited accessories and bags, including a few trays of leather gloves and fur hats. Apparently most of the boots went in the staff sale today but the selection of flats is strong. Pricing, as usual, is a bit on the high side, but there might still be deals to be found for those willing to put in time and effort -- I know you guys are out there.
