When I dropped by late Tuesday afternoon, the sale organizers were still in the midst of setting up and preparing for opening day. After a brief overlook of the showroom layout, I began perusing the neatly organized racks that held Elie Tahari's prior seasons' merchandise. First thing I noticed were the sizes. Inventory was available from 0 to 14 (x-small to x-large) and there was plenty of stock ready to be sold. Since the brand is best known for its every day office staples, I started my browsing in the blazer section. Here I found five extra long racks of office-perfect jackets. Priced at $129.99 each, I spotted various styles like houndstooth, heather gray, salmon pink, velvet, and classic black.
Continuing on the work wear theme, here's what I found in the skirts and dresses section. Shoppers who drop by the 5-day long sale will be greeted with a nice assortment of knee-length pencil skirts in countless designs like lace, eyelet, peplum, and print. Dresses were also plentiful and I spotted everything from electrifying color patterns to floral prints. Skirts were priced $69 while dresses were $59~$109.
In the outerwear section, spring trenches, black puffer jackets, and tailored wools dominated the racks. Prices for all outerwear were tagged at $149.
Now, let's talk about accessories. Shoes were priced $49 for heels and $39 for flats. I saw rounded-toe nude pumps, bow leather flats, python-effect sandals, gold flat sandals, patent leather sandals, patent peep-toes, and platform booties. Meanwhile, over at the handbag section, I found a small selection of leopard print totes, woven straw/leather combo, and oversized metallic clutches. Large handbags were $129 while clutches were $99.
Finally, I was told merchandise will be replenished throughout the sale. Therefore it might not be a bad idea to stop by more than once to see if you can grab a few items from a new shipment. As always, the full price list is at the end of this article and I'll keep you updated on any price reductions.
