The week in shopping
Note: I will be on vacation next week, so I'm listing two weeks' worth of sales.

Since I am going on vacation next week, I really, really shouldn't spend any money, but I don't think that's going to stop me from hitting the Sigerson Morrison and Belle sale, where shoes, sandals, and boots are a mere $75-$150. 5/7-5/9; 10-7 Wed., 8-7 Thurs., 8-2 Fri.; Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th St. (6th & 7th Aves.).

If only this sale had come at this time last year, I'd have a Madeline Weinrib rug in my bedroom. Oh well. Rugs, towels, pillows, accessories and more are 50% off. Through 5/11; 10-8 weekdays, 10-7 Sat., 11-6:30 Sun.; ABC Carpet & Home, 881 Broadway (at 19th St.).

Derek Lam is one of my favorite designers, and now you can score his blouses for $200 and dresses for $750 at this sale (original prices are $590-$1,790). 5/8-5/9; 10-6; 601 W. 26th St. (at 11th Ave.), 17th fl.

Formerly Adam + Eve, and now just ADAM, his tees, dresses, tops, and all manner of knits are 70%-85% off. Go early, 'cause this one usually rocks. 5/8-5/10; 10-7, 10-6 Sat.; Chelsea MArket, 75 9th Ave. (15th & 16th Sts.).

Knoll's ridiculously expensive midcentury modern furniture is still ridiculously expensive, but at 10% off and free delivery, I'll take it. Through 5/9; 10-5; 76 9th Ave. (15th & 16th Sts.).

It's probably a good thing I'm missing the Steven Alan sale; MW will be sad about missing out on the shirts. Men's and women's clothes are up to 80% off. 5/15-5/18; 8:30-8 Thurs. & Fri., noon-7 Sat., noon-5 Sun.; 87 Franklin St. (Church & Broadway).
