UPDATED Sample Sale Report: Lauren Merkin

UPDATED: Additional Markdowns! Clutches now $40- $100 & Day bags now $95-$195

I stopped by the Lauren Merkin Sale after work last night and was greated by clutches and mini bags galore! If you are in the market for a little bag/clutch for cocktail or going out this sale is definitely for you.

Honestly I've never seen so many little bags all lined up in neat rows forming rainbows of materials and colors. Most range from $60 to $125.

But if you like satin, there is a style that is going for a mere $30!

The larger clutches were $125-150.

Larger bags were mostly $125-225. Materials ranged from all leather to raffia and leather mix totes for $150.

There were also bargain bins galore at this sale and the $15 bin was all faux patent the $25 bin was a mix of yellow lamb or peach clutches.

The $50-60 bins had more variety of styles and included some satin purses and metallic leathers clutches.

The bargain item was a scalloped leather or patent leather card holder for only $5 or 5 for $20, they would be great as an add on for a gift. Also very affordable were the faux leather laptop cases made for 14 inch at $25, mostly metallic pewter and gold were left.

As an incentive to big spenders, this sample sale offered additional discounts to purchase of $500 or more!

The sale had a good number of browsers but did not feel crowded at all. There was one mirror for shoppers to check out the purses in near the registers. Definitely some great bargains and worth a trip if you're looking for an affordable high quality handbag.
