When we walked into the LnA sample sale this morning, we were a bit surprised to see only a handful of racks, but were more pleasantly surprised by the quality of the offerings. Basic tees ? both short and long-sleeved ? were $10, more design-y tees and henleys were $15, bralettes (which, we have to admit, we especially loved) were $20, and dresses were $30ish. Basic black and whites abounded, with some autumn shades thrown in the mix for good measure. We also spotted some cute waffle-knit sweaters with zippered breast pockets, B&W bustier-style camis (but in cotton ? what's not to love?), drapy sweater-style dresses, and leisure pants that make lazy Sundays all the more appealing.
Though we heard that an eager mob of about 15 people wiped out at least 1/4 of the sale's inventory in the first 30 minutes, we thought there was definitely good damage still to be done. Sale runs through Friday.
