Everything is 50 at the Parker NY Sample Sale

parker ny sample sale

This 2-day Parker NY sample sale is different from the 5-day sales at 260. Number one – the prices are quite impressive. Everything at the sale, yes, that means everything, was $50. That included sweaters, short dresses, long dresses, tops, skirts and pants (although we didn’t find too many of those).

The place was pretty empty – there were 5-7 people the whole 2 hours after work, which should be peak hours but obviously weren’t. The 12 racks were spread in a semi-circle in the showroom, and the fitting room was a makeshift one out of racks and rags.

The staff was on the ruder side (I don’t love getting screamed out for standing an inch too much to the right), the place was clean. Were there sizes? Most items were small, although I did spot a size 14 and a number of mediums. If you’re willing to dig around and want some $50 finds, head on over before the sale ends.

heroine sport sample sale

Thanks to Heroine Sport for giving us a sneak peak of the sample sale. There room was filled with sweatshirts (the jacket kind), leggings, bras and tops – all ranging in price from $30 to $75 for outerwear. The place was organized, staff was nice, and prices amazing for this kind of merchandise.

If you’re into athleisure and like spending your mornings sipping green juice in a bra top and leggings, definitely hit the Heroine sample sale up. It’s worth the trip downtown.

Oscar de la Renta Sample Sale Has Stunning Pieces

oscar de la renta sample sale spring 2019oscar de la renta sample sale

This wasn’t your standard Oscar de la Renta sample sale. It was hosted by the List (previously Jen X) and was by rsvp only. The room was full of gowns and ready to wear items. There was a decent amount of fur pieces.

The flip side of a designer sale with gorgeous items, is that you definitely need to be ready to part with your money. Nothing was really a bargain other than the jewelry. The gowns were beautiful. There was a spacious fitting room set up for try ons. Sweet staff! They even had some home accessories, such as fur pillows and throws. And if you know someone getting married, 2 racks of bridal to boost.

If you have money to spend, definitely check this one out!

Katama Sample Sale for Yacht Boys

Katama Sample sale 2019

The Katama Swim sample sale has plenty of bathing suits. Other than that, there isn’t much. The entire place had 5 racks of clothes, mostly swim trunks. The clothing was very well-made, clearly good quality. Trunks that retail for $165, don’t cost more than $35-$40 at the sale. A few jackets that were originally $450 cost $90 at the sale. And it’s not like they are past season – you can still find the same stuff on the website for retail prices.

The brand is for yacht boys and used to sell at Barneys and on Moda. If you go to the sale, you’ll meet the lovely owner modeling his own brand. If the clothing isn’t up your alley, at least you’ll have the experience of meeting an entrepreneur.

Stunning Pieces at the Dennis Basso Sample Sale

dennis basso sample sale review

As always, the Soiffer Haskin sales offer a very pleasant experience in terms of organization. The whole place was clean, neat and not too crowded. The items at the sale are exquisite, but the prices for Dennis Brown are not forgiving.

Dennis Basso is a luxury brand and for those who love the brand, the sale is great. You’ll get 50% off the retail prices. But if you are looking for a steal, this sale is definitely for you. Most of the gowns are over $4,000 (after the discount is applied!!!) Either way, the bottom line is that the sale has great items and expensive prices.

Also, keep in mind, Soiffer drops prices on the last day. Might be worth checking out.

Bill Blass Sample Sale Filled with Splashes of Color

bill blass sample sale review

The Bill Blass showroom was a beautiful space and was filled with colorful handbags. Most of the bags were pretty cute. They cost up to $250 at 80%-90% off. But still, even at 90% off, the place was pretty dead. Mind you, I went on the very first day.

There were three-four rows of clothing. The clothing racks didn’t present anything highly valuable. The only rack that stood out was the one with tulle ruffle skirts.. they were of beautiful colors and fun – and priced at $119.

There were a ton of shoes to choose from: pricing was as low at $10 and went up to $100. Some styles were cute, but again, this really isn’t a brand to die for and run to buy even at these prices. If you missed this one, don’t sweat. The good ones are coming up in 1.5 months.

The 375 Showroom Sale Opens to the Public Today

The 375 Showroom in Brooklyn is hosting another clearance sale. For those who don’t know 375, it’s a hub of designer item and contemporary items. The prices usually range between 20%-60%. True, that the sale doesn’t offer the largest discounts. That being said, the brands like Fendi and Chanel and Balenciaga are really difficult to find on discount.

Below we are including prices and items from the sale. If you have some cash to spend and are into designer items from Palm Angels, Chanel, Balenciaga and more, definitely add this to your to-do list.

Theory and Helmut Lang Sample Sale – Reductions on the Last Day

theory and helmut lang sample sale ny spring 2019

The Theory and Helmut Lang at Clothingline was a solid 6 out of 10. The brands are relatively popular. We’re happy to have them hanging in our closets, but no one ever died for those brands either.

The racks are filled with merchandise, a lot of it is relatively recent merchandise (and not items from some warehouse from 30 years ago), and the prices reflect that as well. In comparison to retail, the prices are a good 70% off, but you still have to shell out $155 for a coat and $65 for a sweater.

Since the sale is at Clothingline, reductions take place as well. Thursday prices drop 25%, and we bet that by Friday, prices will drop another 15%-25%. If you’re looking for staple items to fill your wardrobe, don’t miss this one. As always, detailed photos (and pricing) below.

Manolo Blahnik Markdown Number Two – Down to 60%

The Manolo Boutique sale started in the beginning of January – and today the 2nd markdowns finally begin. While there aren’t too many sizes left, the sale is worth the trip – because if you find something you like at 60% off, you hit the jackpot.

The place is full of classy finds. The iconic hangisis are 50% off, but most other things are 60% off. If you have the opportunity to get yourself into midtown in the next two weeks, definitely add the Manolo markdown to your list of to-dos.

What You’ll Find at the Global Fashions Sample Sale

global fashions group sample sale

Another year and with it another Global Fashions Group. The weather wasn’t great so tracking out wasn’t that easy in the sub-zero temperature. In terms of merchandising – most of the items were Valentino, with some Valentino Red and Missoni as well.

The sale had both clothes and shoes. Shoes were priced at 70% off highest retail price, and clothes were 80% off. Unfortunately, the items are missing price tags, so you have to rely on your phone and research throughout. If you’re looking to spend $300-$1,000 per item, then you should check the Global Fashions sale.
