Notes from the Hanky Panky Sample Sale

I magically got out of work on time last night to make it to the VIP Hanky Panky sample sale and to meet a friend of mine who just got engaged last month (her ring is gorgeous, btw)! Some notes on what to expect today before you head over:

- coat & bag check is mandatory
- classic bottoms: low-rise, original, petite, bridal are all "to order". each style has color options up on the wall, you tell an associate which colors you'd like, they mark it off on a sheet and you go pick up your order over by checkout. it's actually pretty efficient and with so many colors available for the low-rise style, it's probably the most organized system they could have. think of it as a B&H photo/video experience, but with people, not robots.
- retro thongs are in one box. i saw a couple pink and some chai colored ones, but the box was mostly the bengal print.
- the majority of the bralettes and bottoms are $10 each. there were a couple boxes of purple-ish boyshorts for $3.
- color options for classic bralettes were much more varied in Mediums than x-small and small. didn't see boxes for bralettes in Large.
- lots of camisoles, a rack or two of bodysuits, and boxes upon boxes of boyshorts.
- checkout is pretty speedy. if you get any thongs from the wall, they bring them to you in a paper bag that the cashier opens, you can't. 
- they take all forms of payment (including discover card!), but pay in cash for the quickest checkout.
- there's a table of little gift boxes you can buy to place undies in as presents

If you have friends or family members who LOVE Hanky Panky and are always waiting for it to go on sale, definitely go to this sale and stock up for them as a holiday gift. They'll thank you.

(Thanks to Larissa at Hanky Panky for the VIP sale info!)
