If you've ever watched a rom-com/read a chick-lit book where the main character happens to work in the world of fashion, you've no doubt heard about the elusive myth of the 'sample sale.'
Designer pieces at knock-down prices? Sounds like perfection to us, but it's something we rarely see on Irish shores.
But happily that's all about to change as NINE of Ireland's most covetable labels have come together for a massive three-day sample sale in Dublin city centre.
Yup, starting from next week you'll be able to pick up some stunning pieces at marked-down prices from Irish design greats like Manley, Caroline Kilkenny, Mona Swim, Jill De Burca, Theo & George, Electronic Sheep, Edge Only, Maria Dora Raj and Love & Robots.
The Irish Design Sample Sale kicks off next Thursday April 7 at the RSAI, 63 Merrion Square.
Opening hours are as follows:
Friday 10am – 6pm
Saturday 10am – 5pm
On the Thursday there will be refreshments served from 5pm, so pop along after work for a glass of wine or a beer and nab yourself a bargain. Plus, you may even get to speak to some of the designers behind the labels while you're shopping.
