NYC in April, What To Do, What to Pack, Idea for Sensational Group Tour

March 18th, 2018
Lets Talk Packing for April in NYC
Sunny and warm-er: temps typically in 50’s. We are a casual but stylish city, but Casual means something different for all. As you have heard, black, grey and other neutrals are Always the reigning choice here, so pack these in lighter fabrics:
Leather Jacket, Poncho or Cape, 
tasteful “well fitting” jeans, light Sweaters, a Nice top for dinner, low boots and your “stylish sneakers”(Converse will do).
Theater & Dinner:
The days of “dressing” for theater are bygone. DO look smart & stylish. Business casual is a good benchmark, Tasteful jeans (blue or black) (cullottes – better!) are fine if paired with a nice top, jacket and heels. A simple fitted, shirt dress or midi skirt 
paired with your leather jacket is always chic. All that said, if you have a new fabulous outfit, by all means, crack it out!

Shopping, Museums, Touring
Comfort is essential, but leave your old baggy jeans home.  Cropped pants with flats or cute sneakers,  a jacket and light wool scarf and will leave you comfortable and blending in like a native.

Mother and Daughter NYC Shopping

Designer Showroom Clothing

Sometimes too much is well.. just too much. NYC can feel like that. Including all the retail options.

One of the great shopping mysteries has always been the Garment Center District. What lies behind those many windows of those many buildings where the designers create their wares for the stores.

The Garment Center “insider” shopping tour will unmask those secrets and we have found its a wonderful jaunt for moms and daughters (ages 18 and older) to shop at Wholesale and learn a bit about this mysterious and legendary fashion industry.

All guests are sent home with a complimentary list of Sample Sales for post tour independent shopping. Which will keep anyone busy with shopping fun for many many hours.  PEAK Sample Sale Season is November 15 to December 15

Happy Shopping

The ABC’s of New York City Sample Sales

As the peak season approaches each year, we try to enlighten our readers with the What, Why and How of Sample Sales.

Once upon a time, designers sold their handful of sample size items at the end of the year. These are the individual pieces shown to store buyers. Some make it to full production, some do not.  Typically, these are size 2, 4 or 6. That was then, this is now

Now, sample sales are BIG business and one can expect big inventory. All seasonal overstock in ALL sizes as well as those coveted one-off samples, are offered at Massive discount. This is an opportunity to buy often unaffordable clothing and accessories at very affordable prices. Or to chase down the designer names you love. or to simply shop for cool stuff. Essential to know: Must get to Sample Sale on its First day open!

In New York City, the apex of the 2017 sample sale season is November 13 to December 15.

Shop Gotham knows what is what and what is where. Come join us for private access to designer showrooms to shop at wholesale followed by a roster of all the best sample sales in town. Forget the Department Stores. This is oh so much chicer.

Here are but a few names we are excited about. Starting in NOV
