Officially, Thursday through Saturday, 11/19-11/21, Metropolitan Pavilion is hosting an Armani sample sale extravaganza featuring up to 80% off clothing and accessories (yes, that means shoes) from Giorgio Armani, Armani Collezioni, Emporio Armani, and Armani Jeans. Credit cards only; no cash. And no, Armani Exchange will not be missed.
Update: A tipster with an invite says the VIP pre-sale preview runs from 12pm until 3pm on Thursday. No word yet on security.
Update 2: Most likely, says one reader, “Staff will be checking the list at the door with a significant amount of vigilance” for the VIP preview.
