It's been a while since we've suggested playing hooky, but this is too good to miss. In addition to multiple fairs looming and Mother's Day fast approaching, this week through the weekend is also packed with a handful of can't-miss, ridiculously generous sample sales. Here are our top five.
·For Love & Lemons, Vanessa Mooney: The designers behind FL&L tells us that, in addition to slashed prices on past season items from resort, holiday and summer, their Saturday sale will also feature "samples that were never put into creation, so there will be a lot of never-before-seen items." Bonus: the first 15 people to show up get a free FL&L bra or Vanessa Mooney bracelet. [Dealfeed]
·Rebecca Minkoff: Based on the comments, there are mixed feelings about the offerings at RM's week-long sale, which concludes this Saturday. Word on the street is that prices will gradually drop as the end day nears, so if you want to give it another try, test your luck now through the weekend. [Dealfeed]
·CC Skye: As mentioned CC Skye's blinged-out Beverly Hills sale starts this Saturday. If your mom has an affinity for sparkly things, get their bright and early if you want to nab the good stuff for up to 60% off. [Dealfeed]
