A trio of sample sales offers fashion and accessories galore.
With three sample sales taking place today through Sunday, your weekend warrioring will require a pair of strong elbows and a tactical plan. First base: stock up at the heavy-on-accessories Pam Ireland sale today (June 5), featuring brands such as Lauren by Ralph Lauren and Montreal-based sterling-silver specialists DSA. With the added attractions of swimwear and handbags, and a peek at gloves and outerwear for next season, this sale promises an excellent mix for all. Local sister brands Kersh and Press hang on the racks in Nordstrom, but spare yourself a cross-border jaunt and head to their own shared sample sale in Richmond on Saturday and Sunday. With Kersh’s relaxed West Coast aesthetic and Press’s clean, more minimal style, you’ll find a double-hitter of summer tops, dresses, and denims just in time for summer. Lastly, a regular fave on the sample-sale circuit, Lija opens its warehouse doors Saturday for a fresh pick of yoga, running, tennis, and golf wear—all for $15 each. (That’s up to 90 percent off, in case you needed further incentive.) Look for tanks, tees, jackets, leggings and—Vancouver Lawn Tennis & Badminton Club members take note—classic white tennis wear.
