A new season calls for a new wardrobe and this week's Milly sale offers bargain shoppers a plethora of Michelle Smith's vibrant and flirty fall designs. With the sale merchandise divided into three basic sections, shoppers can find women's apparel and Milly Minis in the front of the venue while handbags placed inside numerous plastic bins were in the back of the room.
As for prices, tops were $39, sweaters were $49, shorts were $39, skirts were $49, pants were $49, dresses were $79, and outerwear was $129~$179. As you can see, discounts on women's apparel was pretty reasonable but there was a catch. Many of the clothes were missing a size tag which, according to staffers, meant they were samples and therefore sample sizes. As for the selection, there were plenty of varieties to choose from: printed blouses, sequined skirts, tweed jackets, evening gowns, cocktail frocks, animal prints, and lots of fall textures.
As I mentioned earlier, handbags were situated in the back of the sale venue. Here I found prices to be unbeatable. Clutches, crossbodies, shoulder bags, hobos, and totes were priced $29 for small sizes and $49 for larger ones.
It may be a bit late but if you're still in the market for back-to-school outfits for your little ones, today's Milly sample sale had two racks full of girls' apparel with sample sizes available in 4 and 10. Tops were $29, bottoms were $29, dresses were $49, jackets were $69, and coats were $89.
To briefly sum up, Milly's official first-ever sample sale offered generous discounts which will make you go "Grazie mille, Milly!". The sale ambiance on opening day morning was very manageable so consider stopping by after work today if you wear a sample size and you just might find something to perk up your autumn style. Finally, as a FYI, a communal fitting room was set up in the back of the venue with a 10 item limit.
