*SAMPLE SALE* Getting Carré'd Away

So, where do we start? The absence of Hermès from their traditional September sample sale definitely put a damper on our spirits. But, as it turned out, the French fashion house was just being fashionably late (thank goodness!). As you may have read from yesterday's early report, Hermès returned to the NYC fall sample sale scene with a big bang. If time is what they needed to get back on the saddle and get their groove back, then by all means. Ladies and gents, are you ready to get carré'd away?

*SAMPLE SALE* What You'll Find at Tomorrow's The Row Sale

As you may already know, early reviews from today's Hermès sale were good. But if you hate the hustle & bustle and don't want to brave the long wait tomorrow, then you might want to check out The Row's annual bargain event. Ashley & Mary Kate Olsen's upscale label is hosting a 2-day sample sale starting tomorrow and I was invited to preview the merchandise earlier today. Disappointingly, photos were strictly prohibited during the F&F portion but I was able to peruse the goods without a hitch. So, here's a brief rundown of what you can expect tomorrow.

*SAMPLE SALE* Early Word from Today's Hermès VIP

Ever since the dates of this year's Hermès sample sale were announced, questions regarding the sale's merchandise have been pouring in. Well I'm happy to report that word from inside today's select VIP sale is glowing and positive. According to several Mizhattanites who were invited today and were kind enough to email in details, I can report that there were lots of scarves (as mentioned before), men's ties, enamel bangles, shoes, and RTW. Handbags, unfortunately, were the only category missing from today's sale. As for pricing, I've been informed everything was 50% off. I'm sure some of you are disappointed that you won't find bags tomorrow, but still, it sounds like this year's Hermès sale is going to be a good one. Stay tuned for a full Mizhattan review tomorrow and look out for line updates via Twitter.

P.S. Anyone lucky enough to attend today's VIP? Anything you want to brag about? Please share your experiences and insights with your fellow Mizhattanites in the comment section below. Your input will be much appreciated! Thank you!
