The Maje Sample Sale is Underwhelming

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Maje sample sale is honestly disappointing. Unless you feel like waiting around to be shoved by rude people sitting through mediocre merchandise, I’d say skip this sale.

At this sample sale, the merchandise is subpar; I honestly feel kind of gypped. The 30-minute line led to high expectations, but they are completely unfulfilled. Aside from a few cute blouses, a nice pair of pumps, and one alluring leather jacket, there isn’t anything worth buying.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5 out of 10. I’ve seen much better discounts on more expensive merchandise at plenty of sales. It is unsettlingly crowded with rude people, and I cannot stress how underwhelming the selection of products really is. Don’t bother going to this 260 sample sale.

By: Riva Neumann 

The Eberjey Sample Sale had some beautiful pajama sets that looked so comfortable. There were so many options that I would never even think of and they were all so organized. They had beautiful robes and chemises as well as classic top and pants/shorts sets. They also had a beautiful selection of bras and panties as well as adorable bathing suits that were buy-one-get-one-free! What made it even better was that there were no lines and no crowds so it was a very pleasant experience shopping.

Overall, I gave this sale an 8 out of 10. definitely head on over for some great deals on amazing pajamas and bathing suits! While the pajamas were super cute, I found some pieces to be a bit pricey, like $50 for a sleep shirt, but overall most pieces were very much worth the price and were quality pieces.

Clothingline Blowout Sale- Super Discounted, Super Messy

By: Riva Neumann 

The Clothingline Blowout Sale was a sale some would not miss, the lines in the morning were insane and almost impossible to get in. I went at about 2:30pm and there was absolutely no line. I see why people made sure to go early since by the time I got there, most of everything was already sold and what was left was damaged and stained. The good part was that nothing was over $30 with most items being around $10-$15.

Almost all of the items that were left weren’t on the correct rack so figuring out which item was from what brand took a few minutes to figure out. It was very messy and unorganized which was frustrating. Some of the clothes that were there were really a steal but many pieces were damaged in some way.

Overall, I gave this sale a 4.5/10, I didn’t find this sale to be worth going to but it’s possible that going earlier would have a better selection, though there will be long lines and it would be very crowded.

Peter Thomas Roth Sample Sale April 2019 Is Amazing

peter thomas roth sample sale 2019 ny review

We gave the Peter Thomas Roth sample sale a solid 9 out of 10. The prices were low, and we mean very low – there were masks and items selling for $2. The room was well organized with separate bins for different products.

There were few makeup items: a few SPF foundations, powders, eye brow gels. Everything else was skincare: hand creams, facial masks, serums, moisturizer, eye creams and what not. The most expensive items were $30. Everything else averaged in the $10-$15 range.

Given the calm atmosphere (it wasn’t empty), amazing prices, amount of merchandise and impressive organization of the sale, we recommend that all skincare junkies add this sample sale to the top of their list.

Gorgeous Gowns, Jackets and More at the Brock Collection Sample Sale

Brock Collection sample saleBrock Collection sample saleBrock Collection sample saleBrock Collection sample sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Brock Collection Sample Sale was a beautiful sight to walk into. Located at 545 W25th Street on the 5th floor, the showroom was super clean and organized and had windows with amazing views, and that is besides the amazing clothes and shoes they had to offer! Though some pieces carried a pretty hefty price tag, they were pretty steeply discounted and were really good quality.

I loved the shoes they had to offer! The prices ranged from $50- $450 and I was not disappointed in their selection. The jackets and blazers available were to die for. The sale wasn’t crowded which made for a really wonderful shopping experience  This is a sale that I would be running to since it is only open for 2 days!

I gave this sale a 9/10, go out there and enjoy the sale while it lasts!

J Brand Sample Sale, AKA Jean Heaven

By: Riva Neumann

The perfect pair of jeans is always hard to come by. Thankfully, the J Brand sample sale has you covered! Racks of every type of jean possible were available for $70 and leather pairs for $350. They also had some sample pairs available for $40. Whatever jean you need, they have! High waisted, mid-rise, boot cut, low rise, you name it, they had it. They had so many sizes available so you can definitely find your perfect pair!

The J Brand sample sale is the perfect place to find jeans, as well as some cute skirts, shorts and even some dresses! For the most part, the prices were really reasonable but there were some pieces (like an $80 sweater) that were very overpriced for a sample sale. If it is anything like the last sale, lets hope the prices keep dropping.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7.5. Go out there and buy yourself a new pair of jeans, you’ve earned it! Happy shopping!

By Riva Neumann 

The Shoshanna sample sale is the place to get some gorgeous Shoshanna gown for less than $100. Prices ranged from $35- $100 which is such a STEAL. The gowns they had were absolutely beautiful and the short dresses were to die for. There were also a lot of amazing bathing suits available which is perfect for summer!

Everything they had was pretty much perfect- if you are a size 4. For the most part, just about everything available was a sample size 4.They also had some other sizes available ranging from 6-12, but there were mostly blouses available in those sizes. Also, a few of the gowns were damaged.

Overall, I would give this sale 7/10, there was not a lot of variety in size or product, but the discounts are really good and most of the product was really good quality.

Hanro Sample Sale Spring 2019 Always Offers High Quality

hanro sample sale review 2019

The Hanro sample sale is one of our favorites. The staff is extremely kind, the merchandise is high quality, there are two rooms of merchandise and the prices are always reasonable. That’s why we give this one a solid 8 out of 10.

The sample sale takes place in the brand showroom off of 34th st and 5th Ave. The first room and hallway is filled with stuff for women: camis, pajamas, shirts and robes hang on the racks. Bins and boxes are filled with bras, panties and tights. The second room is for men and has the nicest pajamas and underwear.

The brand is based out of Switzerland, and the underwear is produced out of organic cotton in Spain and Portugal. Every piece is comfortable, well made, and expensive looking. It’s one we love to hit up every season.

Sonia Rykiel Sample Sale in NY Offering Merchandise for 90 Percent Off

sonia rykiel sample salesonia rykiel sample sale ny

As New Yorkers who are used to the brands that host sample sales bi-annually, we were excited to see some fresh brands join the scene. Particularly, the Sonia Rykiel sample sale. The sample sale took place at the brand showroom on 57th St. Unlike many other sales, this one opened on a Sunday. By the time of opening at 11AM, there were over 100 people waiting in line.

The Sonia Rykiel is famous for sweaters and knitwear, which retail in the thousands. At the sale, items were $110-$150. There was a lot of merchandise at the sale as well: from casual blazers to sequined sweaters and lacy dresses. The outerwear was 90% off retail – and really unusual pieces. Clothing for kids was in a separate room as well.

The center of the room had a table with handbags selling for $300. More than we would like to spend but for some people might be worth it. I walked away with a shearling coat for $226 that retails for $2,260 so that was win for me.

The Treasure Hunt that is the Rent The Runway Sample Sale

rent the runway sample salerent the runway sample salerent the runway sample salerent the runway sample saleJimmy Choo sample salerent the runway sample salerent the runway sample salerent the runway sample sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Rent The Runway Sample Sale was like walking into heaven, if heaven is a bunch of designer items at extremely discounted prices. Brands like Tory Burch, Marchesa Notte and Badgley Mischka were being sold for less than $150! a fraction of what they would be sold at retail. The selection of bags was also really good in that most pieces weren’t over $200 for brands like Kate Spade and Tory Burch.

That being said, it was not all paradise. There were extremely long lines to get into the sale and once in, it was very crowded and hard to move around or really look for anything. Also, many items were damaged and even though they were discounted, it still didn’t make up for the ripped dresses or broken handles on bags.

Overall, I gave this sale a 6.5/10. There are some really great finds, if you can find them, but you really have to look for them and inspect them for damages.
