Sample Sale Report: Club Monaco

A friend was visiting from out of town this week and I unexpectedly ended up dropping by the Club Monaco sample sale earlier today. I got there around 2:30pm and had to wait about 20 minutes in line before entering the sale. The sale is in a single room with menswear on the right side and women's gear on the left. The sale wasn't overly packed and there was plenty of room to peruse the merchandise without getting in someone's way.

The best part about this sale was that nothing was over $20 with the majority of items coming in below $10! Pants and sweaters are $10, blazers/jackets are $15 and leather coats/large leather bags will set you back a whopping $20.

Accessories were a steal - scarves, gloves, ties, small leather belts, bracelets, rings, broaches and hats were only $2 a pop. There are no change rooms or mirrors at the sale so your best bet is to go with a friend who can let you know how things fit - or you can guesstimate. The only thing I would note is to look carefully at whatever you're picking out. Quite a few of the items were either damaged or had fabric swatches removed on the hemline or back of the item.

In terms of sizing, for menswear - about 95% of the tops were medium and I only saw size 32 for pants. I didn't get a great look at the women's merchandise due to time constraints but I think most of what I saw was size 6 with some size 4 scattered in the mix.

If I knew beforehand I was going to hit up the sale I would have brought my camera! I ended up taking some pics afterward so here's some of the stuff I grabbed.

Blue plaid scarf - $2

Wool checkered scarf - $2, Navy blue knitted tie with white trim -$2

Indigo blue polo - $6

Cream cashmere zip cardigan with gray trim - $12

Tomorrow is the last day for the sale which ends at noon - so hopefully you get a chance to check it out if your looking for some affordable gear!
