Jodi Arnold Sample Sale & Art Event

JODI ARNOLD formerly known as MINT

NEW YORK, NY. February 4, 2010 – The Jodi Arnold sample sale, hosted by shopping event company Savvy & Co., will feature the designer’s Winter/Resort 2010 collection. The sale takes place Wednesday, February 17th through Sunday, February 21st.

You may remember I attended the debut of the Jodi Arnold’s spring 2010 Collection for The Limited, well this is your chance to get your own Jodi Arnold original at amazingly reduced prices

This collection reflects great attention to detail, embellishment, and silhouette. Jodi interprets this collection as “Spontaneity” – freedom of expression and the collaboration of Abstract Expressionist and Bebop musicians, all with a nod to the femme fatale.

This sale will also pay tribute to Jodi Arnold’s belief in Shared Discovery—the idea of sharing art, music, literature, and culture that inspire each season’s designs. Local art and exciting daily events make this sale a true experience!
Merchandise at the sale will be marked down as low as 80% below retail.

Diptyque Sample Sale Event & Public Sample Sale

Before I begin to talk about the private event. Here is the information to the public Sample Sale. Diptyque products range from $60 and up, so 40%-90% is an amazing discount. I suggest you run (click on the image below for larger view)

Now on to last night – Kim and I were lucky (and happy) to get invited to the fabulous Diptyque Sample Sale Event. If you’re a fan of beautifully scented candles then you must rush to this sample sale. Diptyque Candles, body washes, soaps and fragrances at sample sale prices are equivalent to finding little gold nuggets, add an open bar by Combier d’Orange and it’s upgraded to diamonds (conflict-free of course). You may remember Combier from my coverage of their launch event last month. Why no one has ever thought to combine open bar with a sample sale before is a bit mind blggling. It’s genius and the ladies of K Public Relations deserve an award.

I arrived to aromatherapy heaven. The one thing I love about Diptyque is that fact that many different scents can be around at the same time and I never get a headache, the scents just seem to compliment each other. Anyway, of couse there was a nice crowd already shopping. There were candles, room sprays and fragrances everywhere at 40%-90% off

Although I promised to only get a few gift items, I ended up purchasing two candles (my fav scents – Ambre and Pomander), two room sprays, a body wash and matching soap (all for myself)….oops

Anyway, after shopping, Kim and I headed to the bar where who do we see but our old frind Scott Goldman from Combier behind the bar and not too far from him was his brother Curt

In honor of the Diptyque Sample Sale, Combier created French Perfume, a wonderful combination of Combier d’Orange and Champagne, which is absolutely exquisite and is now the newest addition to my drink library. After a few more drinks, Kim and I said our goodbyes and left. I couldn’t wait to get home and as soon as I did, I lit one of the candles. I went to sleep to the sweet smell of Pomander engulfing my room
