When Are L.A.'s Sample Sales Reopening their IRL Discount Stores?

260 L.A. reopens its Beverly Hills doors Tuesday.

DVF LA Sample Sale at 260

Five months after L.A.'s sample sale scene went digital due to the pandemic, designer deal hunters can finally step foot into their favorite markdown meccas. Starting tomorrow, New York-born discount event organizer 260 is reopening its Beverly Hills showroom โ€” and it's kicking things off with Parisian label Maje.

From Tuesday, Aug. 18 to Friday, Aug. 21 (11 a.m. to 6 p.m.), Saturday, Aug. 22 (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.), and Sunday, Aug. 23 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Maje's blowout (301 North Caรฑon Dr., Beverly Hills) promises its edgy-cool womenswear, swimwear, bags, jewelry, footwear, and accessories.

Clothing will be $55 for tees, $65 for shorts and jeans, $70 for skirts and pants, $75 for cardigans, $95 for dresses and jumpsuits, and $125 to $400 for outerwear. Footwear will be $80 to $175, small accessories and leather goods will be $15 to $30, jewelry and belts will be $35, and bags will be $50 to $95.

260 L.A.'s showroom will have coronavirus safety measures in place: Staff will be checking temperatures at the door, and all shoppers are required to wear a mask. Note that fitting rooms will be closed and social distancing is required.

Eclipse Sample Sales, which has a brick-and-mortar on Robertson Boulevard, tells us that it hopes to reopen in October. For now, their upcoming events (including Buscemi and Marcell Von Berlin) will continue to be held online.

Other sample sale-happy locales include Downtown's California Market Center, Cooper Design Space, the Gerry building, and the New Mart building, as well as the many fashion, beauty, and decor showrooms that call them home, have yet to announce any reopening plans.

Stay tuned for more.
