Marika Charles factory sale

From a previous factory sale

Marika Charles -- the fashion knitwear label based in Schenectady (really) -- is having a factory sale this weekend. Apparently there will be some deep discounts.

The label's pieces are normally sold in fashion boutiques such as Fred Segel. Hipster fashion icon Sienna Miller has even been spotted wearing one of their cardigans.

Marika Charles, the company, is an interesting story. The company is a brother and sister team -- he's a textiles expert and she's a designer. They've developed a patented process for quickly dying fabrics with patterns created in Illustrator or Photoshop.

The factory sale is this Friday 10-6, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 11-4.

I checked this out over lunch, and it was great! I got 4 items for under $80. :-) The pictures of the garments do not do them justice - they are so much nicer in person.

designer fashion in Schenectady? Who knew! I'll definitely be checking it out tomorrow - hopefully there will be some deals left!

I was invited to the factory last night for a girl's shopping spree. And boy did I shop!! Love...love..love the t-shirts and light sweaters!!! One design was prettier and more unique than the other. Bought nine of them!!! How lucky are we that the factory is right here in our backyard?! I'll be back for sure. Lou-Ann

My husband found this designer several years ago (that was a shocker all in itself)! He bought me a cream/blue scarf for Christmas 2007. I have worn this scarf (100% Murino Wool) every single day during the winter months since I opened it. It still looks brand new! He just bought me a burnt sienna colored one this year! Thanks Marika for organic, breathable, functional, and beautiful wearable art!
