All clearance items at Loehmann's are 50% off, plus some new arrivals are 25% off, through 2/16. 7th Avenue at 16th Street.

Finally, I went to Century 21 on Friday and boy, are they having a sale. You have to dig through the racks, but I saw some items by Costume National, See by Chloe, Plein Sud, Versace, Helmut Lang, and others, for $25 and less. No joke. They also have a bunch of new spring arrivals (well, mostly last year's spring collections, but you know what I mean), including a big ol' rack of Marni. Unfortunately, most of the Marni is still in the $150-$250 range. (My birthday is in a month and I'm a size 42, if anyone needs gift ideas. Just kidding. Well, maybe not...) They also had some cool stuff by Gaultier and Martin Margiela.
