Get Ensembles Together at Women's Apparel Shop


A women's apparel shop on the Westside is just the place for the ensemble look so perfect for California weather.

Many of the labels at Taberico are familiar, such as Albert Nipon, Nicole Miller and Oleg Cassini, but there are also several lesser-known names, such as Micha from Denmark and Caroline Jerari from Italy.

The Danish products are knits. One three-piece group of pants and a sweater set that retailed for as much as $450 was tagged at $149.

There are knits from Italy, as well. A matching top, skirt and jacket by Toula that once retailed for $750 was going for $399.

There are two racks of classic suits with labels such as Sunny Names and Taiga, which retail for $300 but have been marked down to $100.

The size range is wide--from 2 to 24--but some of the designs, such as the wonderful capes, work for just about any size.

Most are voluminous and untrimmed and go for less than $100, while some with dyed fox trim cost more.


The collection of ensembles--dresses with matching coats--makes this bargain shop different from others.

An Emily Rutenberg chiffon dress with matching jacket for $79.99 (retail $150) seems a good way to welcome spring.

A sleek suit of pants and a fox-trimmed coat is reduced from $700 to $400 and would still be stylish for the holidays.

If a major purchase is not what you have in mind, the Cellini silk T-shirts, which retail for $65, are an excellent buy at $25 and $29.90.

A small selection of shoes and hats is also available at deeply discounted prices.

Taberico, 8943 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles. Hours: Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Closed Saturday. Major credit cards. (310) 275-2884.


Weekend Supersale: A moving sale is on through March at Sy Devore's, one of the Valley's oldest and best-known men's clothing stores. There are some outstanding deals, such as 75% off shirts that usually cost $115 to $195, and 75% off on some tuxedos and dinner jackets. Sport coats that regularly sell for $695 or more are $249.90, and all leather outerwear is discounted 50%.

Sy Devore's, Sherman Oaks Fashion Square. (818) 783-2700.
