Top 12 sample sales of the week

 So many sample sales, so little time (I was going to list 10, but I couldn't narrow it down, so 12 it is). Racked has a full listing of this week's offerings, but here are the must-hits.

Perhaps you've heard Kari Sigerson and Miranda Morrison are leaving their namesake shoe brand. As a bittersweet goodbye, they're hosting a sample sale at Steven Scarloff in Tribeca; prices start at just $25, with prices up to 75% off. Rumor has it the founders themselves will be on hand. I will cry, and then I will buy a lot of damn shoes. 5/20-5/22; 1-7 F-S, 2-5 Su; 44 White St. (Broadway & Church St.).

You know the drill with Steven Alan sales: lots of his signature shirts for guys and girls, plus cool downtowny labels represented by his showroom. 5/19-5/22; 8:30-8 Th-F, 11-7 Sa, 11-5 Su; 87 Franklin St. (Broadway & Church St.).

Score cut25 for under $150 and ready-to-wear for mostly under $200 (dresses are $375) at Yigal Azrouël 's sample sale. There's menswear too! Through 5/19; 9-7; 225 W. 39th St. (7th & 8th Aves.), 5th fl.


Jonathan Adler's warehouse sale has migrated from Long Island City to Bushwick; prices remain awesome, at up to 70% off his signature quirky pottery, rugs, furniture, and more. 5/20-5/22; 10-7 F, 10-5 Sa, 10-2 Su; 513 Irving Ave. (Halsey & Covert Sts.), Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Eberjey makes my favorite nighties of all time; you can score them, plus undies, swimwear, and loungewear for 50%-70% off. 5/19-5/20; 9-4; 40 E. 34th St. (at Madison Ave.), ste. 1215.

Who doesn't love Dolce Vita shoes? Who won't love them for these prices: $19 sandals, $29 flats, and $59 booties? Also featuring apparel by Cynthia Vincent, Mink Pink, Sass & Bide, Blank, and more. 5/19-5/21; noon-7; 156 Ludlow St. (at Rivington St.), 4th fl.

Who needs his eBay collection when you can score Derek Lam's spring 2011 line at these prices: $295 blazers, $395 dresses, $275 trenches? 5/19-5/20; 10-6 Th, 10-4 F; 10 Crosby St. (at Grand St.), 3rd fl.
