Its Back! The POSH sale in NYC

POSH saleThis is the week  that I wait for all year– the designer sale at the Lighthouse Guild in NYC.  From Thursday  May 14 to Sunday May 17  an army  of  fashionistas  will shop  racks of   Armani, Chanel, and Missoni clothing– at up to 90% off retail price.  Some are  lightly used   while others  are brand new donated  by stores and  manufacturers.

Last year I came  home with a six  foot  beaver scarf from Prada, a flowered silk dress from Nina Ricci, a green linen shirtwaist from Loulou de la Falaise,  and a navy blue skirt from Armani.  This year I was invited to preview the POSH sale and I  am so happy to report that its even better than last year.  There  are racks of beautiful coats that fill entire  wall and an equal number of evening gowns of every color and style.  If you  have a wedding  coming up, this should be your first stop. As I walked thru the preview I fell in love with a  Gucci bag, a fur lined raincoat and a pair of red Hermes sandals.

But wait there’s more.  The racks of mens jackets from Dunhill, Paul Stuart and Brooks
