Score Major Deals This Weekend With Two Trans-Atlantic Sales

A good sale can totally make your weekend...especially if the weather is going to keep being grosser than gross. To lighten up your soaking wet dampened spirits, we've got two hot sales from across the pond you won't want to miss.
First, A.P.C. is having an overstock sale from Friday, May 4, through Sunday, May 6, where you can get up to 75% off their casual-chic French staples. While blazers, jackets, and coats will cost you a Benjamin, everything else cashes in at $55 or less — yes, we mean everything. Shirts, tops, and blouses are all $45 each, and pants, shorts, and skirts are all $30. That means you'll have enough cash to treat yourself to a leisurely al fresco lunch (French, bien sûr) after you scour the racks...if the sun decides to come out and play, that is.

When: Friday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, May 5, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, May 6, from noon to 6 p.m.

Where: The Invisible Dog, 51 Bergen Street 3rd Floor (between Smith Street and Boerum Place); 646-270-2550.

If you can't wait until the weekend to shop (we don't blame you), you can hit up Paul Smith's sample sale starting tomorrow. Not only will all men's and women's clothing, shoes, and accessories be up to 75% off, there will also be new and vintage books, gifts, collectibles, ceramics, and home and tabletop goods, as well. And yes, we're crossing our fingers that there will be at least a few pieces with their signature swirly print on hand. If you're thinking both your wardrobe and your house couldn't be more set, well, you're wrong.

When: Thursday, May 3, through Friday, May 4, from noon to 7 p.m., and Saturday, May 5, from noon to 5 p.m.

Where: 468 West Broadway (between Prince and West Houston streets); no phone.
