The other day I stopped at one of my favorite sample sale hot spots, 260 Fifth Ave, for a James Perse sample sale. I love 260 Fifth, truly a great location that allows shoppers to try on merchandise and is always fairly well-organized. For the James Perse sample sale I resisted temptation and waited until the second to last of day of the sale with the hope of scoring an extra discount. With no further reductions or markdowns I was disappointed by the price points. There was a good amount of men’s and women’s apparel in a variety of sizes but the prices seemed entirely too high by sample sale standards (see price list below). Saks Off Fifth, one of my favorite online retailers, is actually offering James Perse apparel at significantly lower prices. Women’s long sleeve tops start at $24.99 at Saks Off Fifth versus $40.00 at the James Perse sample sale. Save your time and money by skipping the 260 Fifth sample sale and instead head to Saks Off Fifth to pick up your James Perse apparel.
