The week in (tax-free!) shopping
All clothing and footwear purchases under $110 are tax-free, kids! Not to mention, there are enormo sales galore. So without further ado...

I just hit the Language sample sale on my lunch hour and finally scored the Marc Jacobs lace-up boots that I've been lusting after for, oh, four months. The sale was a zoo, but they have a ton of stuff, most of it marked down 50% or more. I saw a bunch of Stella McCartney, Chloe, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Language private label, Citizens of Humanity, and more. I'd highly recommend checking it out. 1/26-2/1; 11-7, noon-6 Sunday; 238 Mulberry (Prince and Spring Sts.).

Clothingline is having its annual blowout sale, with items by Joie, Vince, Tocca, Nanette Lepore, and others marked down as much as 90%. Yikes stripes. 1/26-1/30; 10-6; 261 W. 36th (7th and 8th Aves.), 2nd fl.

By the way, I'm sorry if anyone went to the so-called "sample sale" at Loehmann's last weekend. It totally sucked. I did, however, discover that they have a ton of jelly kellys in an array of spring colors, for $40. Also, they just got a shipment of Nicole Miller sportswear and dresses, for $24.99 to $159.99 (originally $100-$715).

Downtown hipster store Johnson has shirts, skirts, jackets, and more for 10%-75% off. Through 2/28; 179 Orchard St.

Lucky fave Martin's cords, jackets, and jersey tops are under $100. Considering how well made these clothes are, that's an incredible bargain. 1/29-1/31; 9-7 weekdays, 1-7 Saturday; 206 E. 6th St.
