It’s the J Mendel private sample sale again, and that means days of planning, appointment setting, building up of expectations. We went last night to check the sale out before opening. The good news is that the sale is in a large retail area with plenty of room to browse and try on items. The bad news is that dresses still cost quite a bit.
We awarded the sale a 7.5 out of 10 because the items were beautiful, but the prices were still high. A nice selection of gowns, furs, Manolo shoes (the ones I picked up were a size 9) and a few handbags. The cheapest items were separates (skirts & blouses) for $100-$150. We found a few cute short dresses in the $300-$600 range. Everything else was in the $1,000-$3,000 range. This sale is extended till Friday and is by appointment only. You can set yours up by RSVPing here. Photos and prices below. Enjoy!
