Shut.The.Front.Door! 3.1 Phillip Lim Is Hosting Its First L.A. Sample Sale!

Ohhh boy. We pen sale posts every darn day, but you better believe this one has us dancing on our desks right now (and maybe even planning a trip to the pawn shop, tee hee)! Whether we're throwing a rad rager, or just want to out-dress anyone in the room, Phillip Lim is R29's main partner in crime time after time (which is also why we're the first to break this news, natch). But, if there's one gripe we've ever had with the brand, it's that only the Big Apple has been blessed with an annual badass sample sale. Well, consider the complaints department officially closed, folks – Lala's finally getting our moment in the discount sun!
Next Thursday and Friday, PL's hosting an epic warehouse blowout sale stocked with runway finery, accessories galore (sunnies anyone?), and even those initials intimates to wear underneath it all — for way under retail prices. Wee! And, as if this news couldn't invoke any more warm fuzzies, proceeds of the event will go to the American Red Cross to aid our New York pals who've struggled with Sandy's satanic aftermath. We're guessing the line could form from the Cooper Building all the way to L.A. Live (an exaggeration, of course), so you better get up at the crack with your cup of Joe to fight for your right to baaaaargaaain!
When: Thursday, November 15, 12 to 6 p.m.; Friday, November 16, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: The Cooper Building, 860 South Los Angeles Street (at East 8th Street), 11th Floor; 213-627-3754.
