I went to a Ralph Lauren lamp sale a few years back which was fantastic. We bought 6 lamps for the price of one lamp at retail. I only wish we had bought more, but at the time we were living in a one bedroom apt. in Brooklyn, without extra space to store extra lamps. I hope this sale is as good as that one.

Or more importantly, what do sheet sets cost at the sample sale? Even at 75% off, a $4k set of sheets is out of my price range.
Since these are the same people who origanized the Paul Stuart, Loro Piana & Asprey sales, and using past experiences as a guide I'd expect 90% off during the last day of the sale. So a $4k set would become $400, that's not too bad.
Nymetro.com says a king-sized sheet set is $665. That's almost a respectable pair of shoes.
I believe that's the first day price. The second day will be 85% off (the said set will become $399), the final day 90% off ($266), at least that's a combination of my wishful thinking and past experiences.
Filene's Union Square has a few decent shoes on the top floor including a pair of Zegna for $200 (middle line, I think, not Z Zegna or Napoli Couture) and Gravati for $250. They also had some casual Hickey Freeman coats for around 60% off retail, including a couple of short Storm System rain coats for $250.
DSW downstairs has some AE rubber soled cap toe bluchers for around $110. Leather was not so great, but would make a decent rainy day shoe.
