Calling all Swimwear Lovers! – Mara Hoffman Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to stop by the Mara Hoffman Sample Sale downtown at 150 Greene Street. The racks were filled with an assortment of rainbow colored swimwear and whimsical summer dresses.

The Mara Hoffman Sample Sale did have a great selection of swimwear, including everything from floral bikinis to chic one pieces.There was a large selection of summer dresses, pants and rompers but had very limited sizing, only offering small and extra small options. Though these light linen dresses made us feel as if we were ready to tan in the sun while relaxing on a beach.

We rated the Mara Hoffman Sample Sale a 6.5 out of 10. The sale did have a large selection and assortment of fun and unique bathing suits, and they were honestly the best deal at the Mara Hoffman Sample Sale.While the clothing was cute it was extremely limited to the warmer seasons and high in price. There was a long line outside to wait on as well as inside for the dressing rooms. While on this cooler spring day, the bathing suits and variety of colorful dresses made us want to take a weekend trip down in the Caribbean.

The Good, Bad and Just Ugly – R13 and CP Company Sample Sale

R13 & CP Company sample sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to check out the R13 and CP Company Sample Sale at ClothingLine located at 261 W 36 Street. The R13 and CP Company Sample Sale was interesting. There was very limited inventory from CP Company and a lot of eclectic merchandise from R13

The R13 and CP Company Sample Sale had limited variety and merchandise. The pieces from CP Company were extremely limited to one rack of sweaters and another of winter coats. The sweaters were high quality cashmere but still the prices were too high. R13 had a great deal for their jeans, you could buy three pairs for just $150! While these jeans usually retail for somewhere between 250 to 400 dollars.

Overall, we rated the R13 and CP Company Sample Sale a 5 out of 10. The merchandise from R13 felt old and dirty. While there was extremely limited assortment of clothing from CP Company. The prices on everything, besides the jeans, from R13 were still high. The sizing options from both companies was limited to only smalls and extra smalls.

We Are Excited To Host Our First Ever Sample Sale! Here Is Why You Should Be Too!

ShopDrop Sample Sales New York

Dear ShopDrop Users,

We are so excited to announce our first official hosted sample sale along with Sachin & Babi,Gracy Accad and Naz New York. In the year that we have been living, breathing and covering sample sales, we have been listening to your feedback, suggestions and frustrations and learned about the things that really piss you off.

Our next mission at ShopDrop is to create an amazing shopping experience where the prices are great, shoppers aren’t made to feel like criminals and don’t have to spend hours weltering in the heat or rain. A good price doesn’t have to equal a terrible experience.

Here is a summary of what people hate most about sample sales:

When discounts don’t go deeper than 60%
When you expect one set of prices, but see a totally different set at the sale (we all hate surprises like that)
When there is a ton of staff, yet no one is helpful
When you’re forced to check your bag and then are expected to tip on top of that
Waiting for hours in the boiling heat, pouring rain or freezing cold
Hoarders and re-sellers
Horrible hours and inconvenient locations
Mean staff

Here is what we are doing about it:

Transparency with regard to pricing, merchandise and traffic within the store (you will be told if there is a line!)
Pleasant environment where the staff is friendly, knowledgable and helpful (remember, a smile doesn’t cost extra!)
Everything is catered to the customer – that’s right, you, the ShopDrop Users always come first!

Getting to this point has taken us months of blood, sweat and tears. We are so grateful to our partners, believes and users for sticking with us all this time. We love you and cannot wait to see you this week! We can’t wait to embark on the next part of this amazing journey with you!

XoXo,

The ShopDrop Team

Minimalist Summer Chic – Eileen Fisher Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to checkout the Eileen Fisher Sample Sale in the East Village. There were two separate sections, one having regular merchandise offered at a sale price and the other was all sample clothing and accessories.

The Eileen Fisher sample sale offered a minimalistic assortment of merchandise. The racks were lined with limited color such as taupe, military green, and auburn as well as scales of black and white. The Eileen Fisher Sample Sale offered extremely chic and simplistic clothing but had limited quantity.

We rated the Eileen Fisher Sample Sale a 6 out of 10. The clothing was minimalistic and chic but there was limited availability in all the samples, but they did have a separate rack of discounted item from their regular line.The staff was extremely nice and attentive to the customers. The merchandise was priced generally high for samples. The Eileen Fisher Sample Sale embodied minimalistic chic work clothing. If you are looking for a minimalistic base piece and have a larger budget, we recommend you take a look!
