Philosophy Designer Outlet Sale – Work Women Chic!

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the chance to checkout the Philosophy Designer Outlet Sale in midtown. The sale had a variety of designers including Philosophy, T TAHARI and Catherine Malandrino. 

The sale is extremely organized and run by an amazing staff which are ready to help you right when you walk in the door! While we expected the sale to feature lots of merchandise from Philosophy we were disappointed to find out that there was a limited selection. There was tons of T TAHARI dresses and tops as well as a variety of pieces from Catherine Malandrino. There is a large selection of work appropriate clothing at a discounted price.

Overall we rated the sale a 5 out of 10. While there was a huge variety of clothing, the pricing was not great. If you are in need of any work chic clothing that will both be appropriate and impress the office, you should stop by!

Stock up on Shoes at the Schutz Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann  

The Schutz Sample Sale is being held at the Soho Store location and it is a sale you do not want to miss. Shoes are 70% off and many of the shoes on sale are less than $100, which is literally unheard of. Everything was super organized and separated by size so it was very easy to find! Also each pair on sale was labeled with the price which was super convenient. They had all types of shoes, from booties to sandals so you can stock up for fall and get yourself some cute sandals for the summer months.

I also loved that they had a good variety of sizes, ranging from 6 to 10 and had a lot of each so there is definitely something for everyone, and with the crazy discounts who wouldn’t want to be at this sale right now?

I gave this sale an 8.5/10 overall, I would highly recommend this sale if you are in need of shoes (but who isn’t really?) Happy shopping!

PRIVE Mens and Women’s Sample Sale – Great Variety of Brands

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had a chance to checkout the PRIVE Mens and Women’s Sample Sale downtown inside Chelsea Market. The sale featured a ton of both mens and women’s brands such as Onia, Derek Lam, Vince, and Toms. The Vince shoes were priced at $75 dollars and there were some great finds. The ready to wear pieces from Derek Lam were limited but there were some gems. The greatest find was Onia X WeWoreWhat collaboration pieces for $25 dollars when they are still full priced online. Whether you are lounging on the beach this upcoming holiday or going out to brunch with your besties, a new outfit never hurt anyone. There is also a ton of stuff for the men in your life!

Overall we rated the sale a 7 out of 10. There is a huge variety of brands down at Prive for some good prices. If you haven’t escaped the NYC swamp for the week, we recommend you stop by!

The Funky Soul Sample Sale had Impressive Deals

By: Jacqueline Munro

I checked out the Funky Soul sample sale today and everything was so cheap! Although there was not a huge selection, the prices were too good to pass up! Furthermore, the staff members could not have been more helpful.

At this sale, the majority of the merchandise was made up of jeans. There were lots of different styles, but most of the sizes were on the smaller end of the spectrum. Some of the tops were really cute and there were even a few denim jackets, but the best part of this sale was the kind staff. Normally when I review a sale, I can feel the employees stalking me while I take pictures of the merchandise. But these girls were more than happy to set up clothing for photos, and when I wanted to try something on they were beyond helpful with their recommendations!

Overall I rated this sale a 7/10. The prices were great and the employees could not possibly have been nicer. These two things completely distracted me from the fact that the selection was a bit underwhelming.

The Prices at the Elan Sample Sale are Right Where they Should be

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Elan sample sale was a sale shoppers’ dream; everything was between $10 and $20. Although the showroom and selection were small, it is definitely worth checking out if you need cute, cheap clothes for summer.

My favorite items at this sale were all jumpsuits. They had plenty of different styles that would be great to rock this season but the only issue was that most of them were small sizes. There was also a limited assortment of $10 sweaters, matching sweatpant sets, and cute sundresses. There was nothing that really blew me away, but I wouldn’t expect anything more than what I got from such a cheap sale.

Overall I rated this sale an 8/10. I felt that the fantastic prices were enough to weigh out the unfortunately small selection of clothing. I love going to sales that are stocked with items that are in season, and this was definitely one of them. Happy shopping!

Vivienne Tam Sample Sale- Nice Clothes but Meh Experience

By: Riva Neumann 

The Vivienne Tam Sample Sale was nothing really special, it felt more like a vintage clothing store than a sample sale. There were racks of beautiful clothes for really good prices, nothing being over $300, but I wasn’t super impressed by this sale.The samples ranged in price from $10 to $50 while the other pieces ranged from $80- $250. There also wasn’t a lot of clothes available at the sale which was kind of a bummer.

On the other hand, there were definitely finds in this sale. I found a really cute, colorful dress for $225. They also did not have a lot of sizes available, mainly sample sizes and a rack of bigger sizes.

Overall, I gave this sale a 6.5/10. This is a good sale for those familiar with the brand or if you are looking for some nice sample pieces for not a lot of money.

MZ Wallace Sample Sale- Long Line but Worth the Wait

By: Riva Neumann 

The MZ Wallace Sample Sale was really great for anyone who loves the brand, besides waiting on line for over an hour. However, after the first day, there seemed to be no line and there was a price drop! On day 1, solid colored bags went for $100 and printed went for $80 but now solid bags are $80 and printed are $60. What. A. Steal!!!! They restocked the bags so there was definitely something for everyone. Wallets were $60, cosmetic bags were $40 and charms and other miscellaneous items were $20.

There were so many bags to choose from and they were all in boxes in two different rooms, one downstairs and the main room upstairs. The boxes were not organized and everything was everywhere but if you go through the boxes you will definitely find something you like. I was able to snag a large printed backpack for $80 so I highly recommend this sale to anyone.

Overall, I gave this sale an 8/10, lots to choose from so head on over!

Chuckies Liquidation Sale – Can Somebody Say Shoes?

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the chance to stop by the Chuckies Liquidation Sale located on 74th and Lexington Avenue. Chuckies is a boutique shoe store with multiple locations across NYC! They carry a variety of designer brands such as Repetto, Alexander Wang, Dior and more! 

The sale is organized into different sizing and pricing options. Spotted on these racks were tons of Loeffler Randall sandals from $49 to $129 dollars. There are some drool worthy Alexander McQueen boots for $329 as well as a ton of Repetto ballet flats for $129. While if you have small feet (think size 5.5 & 6) or big feet (think 10 +), you are in luck because there are a lot of options in those sizes. We also spotted some Les Petits Joueurs bags at 80% off! 

Overall we rated the liquidation sale a 7 out of 10. While the room is very organized there aren’t that many options for people with size 7 through 9.5. If you are in the area, we recommend you check it out!

Nanette Lepore Sample Sale – Modern Day Work Woman Chic!

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Nanette Lepore Sample Sale located midtown. The Nanette Sample Sale is hosted in house by the brand and featured some amazing pieces at bargain prices. 

The pricing at the sale was a bit confusing and it organized by what was old/new production as well as old/new samples. The staff was very helpful and clarified what was priced at what. There were also two racks that were “specially marked”, one which was $30 and the other at $40. The sample featured tons of lace tops and dresses in various colors. There were some really nice linen pants and dresses – perfect for this summer heat. The racks were organized and there was lots of sizes and stock to be riffle through. If you are in need of a new work wardrobe, look no further. 

Overall we rated this Sale an 8 out of 10. There are some really beautiful pieces that can be worn all year round! If you are looking for a dress to wear to a summer wedding or for any special occasion, you should stop by!

Sales Styles Series – Interview with @Luxe_Hunt

By: Ashley Randall 

Hello and welcome to our new Sales Style Series! Here we will be interviewing some of your favorite fashionistas and sales shopping experts! This past week we had the opportunity to speak with @Luxe_Hunt. If you are not familiar with the user @Luxe_Hunt, she scours every online retailer for the designer deals of the century and links them on her instagram stories. She literally “hunts” for designer goods from Neiman’s to Barneys and everything in-between. If you were to check out her page on any regular day, you would find Balenciaga shoes, Burberry scarves and Prada wallets – all at a steep discount – linked to her Instagram stories. We had the opportunity to ask her some questions regarding her Instagram, how much time she devotes, the sale community and some of her favorite finds!

Luxe_hunt told us that her instagram merely started out as a way to share her great finds with her friends and family. Instead of showcasing her finds, she decided to link the items so others could buy (lucky us)! While Luxe_hunt did not reveal her methods to how she finds all these amazing products, she did disclose that she spends roughly 3 hours a day scouring different sites. The question we were dying to have answered was Luxe_hunt’s thoughts on who has the best sale merchandise. While she explained that sale merchandise goes through different phases. For example, right now in department stores (think Barneys & Nordstroms) they are having discounts as high as 70% off – which is the best you can get. While in the next coming weeks, there will be great discounts at the outlets (think Saks Off Fifth & Nordstrom Rack). Luxe_Hunt also discussed the importance of a Sales Associate and getting them to message you when designer merchandise goes on sale.

Shopping online versus shopping in stores?

  • Shopping in stores, where you can find the best hidden gems

What is your favorite part about the sales community?

  • Group of like-minded people that cheer each other on

What was the best sale find you have ever come across?

  • Brand new black classic Louboutins with the dust bag and all at Neiman’s Last Call – scored for $186!

What is your favorite item purchased within the last year?
