This week’s top 5 sample sales all have one thing in common, they are not being hosted by major sample sale venues, but rather in the stores themselves. We’ve often found that these sample sales have something special about them, a charm and a unique selection of inventory, but you can be the judge. Check out some of these awesome sales and embrace the first week of summer.

Established in 2010, the Jonathan Simkhai brand provides luxury ready-to-wear for the modern woman. The core aesthetic philosophy plays with the tension of feminine strength and sensuality; this is reflected in the employment of customized fabrics, romantic detailing, linear lines, and contoured silhouettes. For two days only, the brand will be hosting a sample sale in their own store on West 37th St.

3. Alice & Trixie and Love Sam Sample Sale

Where: Alice & Trixie HQ, 265 West 37th Street, 11th Floor, New York, 10018

4. Micky London Sample Sale

Where: Micky London, 231 West 39th Street, Suite 202, New York, 10018

When: From June 12th 2017 to June 23rd 2017


micky london sample sale, sample sales nyc, sample sales ny, designer discountsThere’s nothing quite as discouraging as a  “fake sample sale.” As far as I’m concerned, if the prices are not at least 70% off, the brand doesn’t have the right to call it a sample sale. 50% off sales take place every so often, but unless the merchandise is more off than it is on, don’t you dare call it a sample sale. Micky London has got you covered this week with $1 hair accessories and women’s clutches and bags for just $10. (Now that’s what I’m talking about.) Shake up that little white dress with some fun accessories. For those looking for a way to keep your hair under control in this humidity, you can’t go wrong with a funky head band or scrunchy.

5. Babajaan Sample Sale

Where: Juju The Showroom, 135 West 20th Street, Suite 602, New York, 10011

When: From: June 19th 2017 to July 28th 2017

Weekdays 9-5

Let’s be real, New Yorkers are a unique breed of humans. The first time I walked into Central Park and saw a group of people tanning in their bathing suits I’ll admit I was slightly taken a back. No ocean, no sand, just sun, squirrels and high UV rays. You don’t need to live within walking distance of the beach to own a beautiful, designer bathing suit. You also don’t have to sacrifice your rent this month… All one pieces and bikinis $75, normal retail price between $300-$800. The sale will also feature high end hats, ya know, those ones that make you look like you just got off the plane from Florida.

Use these awesome in store sample sales to truly take control of your summer wardrobe, for a mere fraction of the price. Find more summer sample sales here! Happy shopping ladies!

Sample Sale Review: Eleventy

Eleventy sample sale menswear ny

By: William Guzman

Eleventy Sample Sale: Contemporary Italian fashion for men at an irresistible 80% off!

Shopping at the Eleventy sample sale was an outright therapeutic experience for me – the aroma of extravagant Italian fabrics and leathers invited me in to peruse the eclectic variety of classy yet stylish collection. Jackets, pants, ties, shoes, and messenger bags lined the shelves of the store. The experience was uniquely satisfying, and highly addictive. Located on the 9th floor of 80 W 40th St in Manhattan, Eleventy’s sample sale is super convenient to reach regardless of what part of New York City you’re visiting from- not to mention the ideal place for some post-brunch shopping. 

At 80% off, what would otherwise be an intimidating price tag becomes a huge steal, especially considering the craftsmanship and tangible quality Eleventy’s collection boasts!

Unfortunately, just as all good things must come to an end, so must Eleventy’s sample sale. But it’s not too late, you still have until Friday, June 16th to bask in the graces of the discount gods and deck out your wardrobe with fresh apparel worthy of Mr. Bond himself! Enjoy my photos from the sample sale. 

What: Eleventy sample sale
When: Monday, June 12th – Friday, June 16th
What time: 9AM-6PM
Where: Eleventy, 80 W 40th St, NY, NY

J Rosen Showroom: The Never Ending Sample Sale

By: Francine Szerer


Sample sales may just be retails gift to mankind. Nothing equates to the excitement that follows scoring an incredible deal on designer merch. The only problem is when they come to an end, or even worse— the despair that follows missing a sample sale. Well, ShopDrop solves the latter problem. But, for most sales, the end is inevitable.

Instantly, as I entered, I noticed, bathed in incredibly flattering lighting (amazing for trying things on and seeing what looks good), the fabulous selection of top brands housed by J Rosen Showroom. As you can imagine, my shopaholic senses began tingling and adrenaline skyrocketed as I went from rack to rack, box to box checking everything out! Also, there is a changing room which is always a major plus for showrooms and $10 boxes scattered all around.

My obsession with my niece led me straight to the children’s section where I scored big on Onda de Mar swimwear and beachwear clothing. Sample sale shopping for the whole family has never been this easy— there was even a small selection of boys swimsuits!

Sample Sale Review: Helmut Lang at Chelsea Market

Helmut Lang Sample Sale Review

If you’re wondering how the Helmut Lang sample sale went over, this post is for you. I spent the weekend hitting up the Helmut Lang sample sale at Chelsea Market and here are my three takeaways. First, great merchandise. Second, love the layout of Chelsea Market. Finally, the discount was significant but not significant enough for many.

So the merchandise. We’ve been to a number of ‘fake’ sample sales where you show up to find two and a half items hanging limply in the closet. That wasn’t the case here. The showroom at Chelsea Market was filled with all the merchandise you can imagine: men, women, shoes, dresses, pantsuits, jackets, outwer-wear, tops, lingerie… you name it. Everything was sorted by category and size, so finding your ideal size and item wasn’t difficult at all.

Second, we love the layout and feel of Chelsea Market. It’s located on the ground level and feels like any other store. They don’t make you check your bag in at the beginning, although they do check your bag when you exit, and there are dressing rooms at the back. That being said, you get what you paid for. Which brings us to point three.

Prices: although the discount was 60% for most items, the items were still quite pricey, and if you chose two items at random, chances are you would be spending more than $500 on your purchase. The funny thing is that the nicer showrooms (like Chelsea Market) charge the brands to run the sample sales, which makes the ultimate price more expensive. If what you’re after is the best deal, then look out for the sales happening in the offices of the brands (i.e. 25th floor or Suite 1608). These are usually marked super low because the brand just wants to get rid of excess merchandise – the last sale I was at had everything marked at $20, when the retail prices were over $300. It was crazy. Okay, okay, back to Helmut Lang. The signs indicated that if the retail price was between X & Y, price would be Z. So for example, at the jacket section, if a jacket was between $595 and $795 at retail, at the sale it would be $295. There were some adorable furry shoes for $189 down from (!!) $595.

Here are some images below about items and prices. All of the images are from our instagram stories, so make sure to follow us there at @shopdropapp. As always, your feedback is appreciated. Enjoy!

Top Five Sample Sales of the Week

sample sales nyc, shopdrop app,

Happy Monday fashionistas! For those who checked the weather for the week and are slightly less than thrilled, ShopDrop is here with a bit of sunshine. As a wise sales rep at a sample sample once told me, rain is bad for retail. No one is standing in line during their lunch break or schlepping out through the wind to make it to the sales. This means that all of those designer discounts belong to those who are brave enough to claim them. Here’s where you come in; the educated, ambitious shopper who isn’t intimidated by a 75% chance of showers. Check out five of our favorite sample sales that are worth trekking out in the rain for this week.

Monday June 5th 2017- Tuesday June 6th, 2017: REPEAT Cashmere HQ, 141 W 36th St., 7th Floor, NY, NY: 9am-5pm
