Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale – Is It Overhyped?

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale all the way over in Brooklyn. This was the first time that this sale has happened since 2016. Everybody is dying to know if the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale is worth the hype and we now have the insider scoop.

First off, the sale is held in Brooklyn so you’re gonna plan accordingly. While I was first expecting a mob scene, it was actually not that busy. They have designer clothing ranging from IRO to Stella McCartney and Prada plus everything in between. The merchandise is organized by size and type and the staff is very helpful. The pricing on most items is good, but then again a $2,000 dress for $450 is still expensive. Secondly, there are no shoes and accessories. Say what? Yes, let me repeat myself, there are no shoes and accessories at this sale. As well there are no dressing rooms so you have to try on your finds in plain sight.

We rated this sale a 7 out of 10. They have amazing high end designer merchandise, you just have to have the patience to dig through the racks. If you are hunting for a nice Paco Robanne dress or a Valentino matching set, you should look no further.

The Nautica Sample Sale Prices are Lower than my bank Account Balance!

By: Jacqueline Munro

At the Nautica Sample Sale, almost all of the items are dirt cheap. There is a larger selection for men than women, and a lot of the items look the same, but the prices are impossible to beat!!!

Nautica is a great brand to shop for right now given that summer is right around the corner. If you’re into the preppy style but don’t feel like pointlessly wasting your money on Vineyard Vines, this sale is perfect for you! There are lots of great options for men, women, and children; and they’re all very affordable! In addition to bathing suits, t-shirts, button downs, and sweaters, they also have a selection of home furnishing products ranging from towels (bath, beach, and hand) to umbrellas!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 7/10. The prices are great and the selection is decent, but it was slightly crowded with aggressive shoppers which made the experience a little less enjoyable. But for such good discounts, I’m willing to throw some elbows… Are you?

The Cinq á Sept Sample Sale has Gorgeous, Affordable Pieces

By: Jacqueline Munro

At the Cinq á Sept sample sale, there a lot of beautiful pieces throughout the well organized showroom. Unfortunately, though there are not nearly as many sample pieces as there are production pieces (which are more expensive).

The Cinq á Sept sample sale is one that I’ve been looking forward to for a while; I absolutely adore the brand. Although the production prices are not ideal, the prices of the sample items definitely make up for them. Now despite the fact that the samples are not as plentiful as the production pieces, there are still some really cute items. Obviously, there are beautiful dresses at this sale, but all of my favorite items are fall into the outerwear categories. From fur detailed, long coats to embellished military style jackets, you’re guaranteed to find an outerwear piece that you love.

Overall I’m giving this sale an 8/10. I would really like to see more sample pieces and a drop in the production prices, but I can happily say that I have no complaints about any of the staff members or the organization of the showroom. If you like the brand or are looking to spruce up your wardrobe, I’d say it is worth checking out this sale.

The Elie Tahari Sample Sale had a lot of product available at a 70% discount! The sale was super organized by size and product and they had so many sizes available that was so great to see. They had racks of small, medium and large so finding sizes was a literal breeze since the racks were all separated and clearly marked.The showroom was very spacious which made for a pleasant shopping experience.

The shoes were all $59 and were equally organized by size. There weren’t as many shoes available but what was there was pretty cool and were mostly sneakers. They had a very small mens section but it was mostly womenswear at the sale.

A.V. Max is the Place for All Your Jewelry Needs

By: Riva Neumann 

The A.V. Max Sample Sale was honestly one of my favorite sample sale experiences. The staff were so nice and helpful and they offered mimosas and water while I shopped! The pieces ranged from $5- $25 and they offered a free cuff with every purchase. Rings and earrings were all $5 and buy 4 get 1 free. Everything was very organized by piece and collections and everything was labeled so finding the prices was very easy to do.

I bought the most adorable anchor earrings and also got a really pretty rose gold colored cuff as well. I would highly recommend this sale to anyone looking for gifts or just a little treat for themselves. The prices are too good to pass up! I also loved the monogram necklaces and zodiac necklaces that were only $10 (80% off retail!). They also had some beautiful statement necklaces that were only $15 and some really dainty, delicate necklaces for $10.

Overall, I gave this sale an 8/10! Go check it out, you won’t regret it!

By Ashley Randall 

The Chaser Brand Sample Sale featured all your cosy classics for the perfect chill day. The prices ranged from $5 to $50 dollars. Among the many plain tanks and graphic band tees, there were also some nice floral and pinstripe dresses. The room was fairly organized allowing for easy browsing of all the merchandise. There was also a rack of swimwear, just in time to show off at the beach but beware because the sizing was pretty limited! The sale had another rack for children, featuring easy tees for boys and funky ruffled sweats for girls. Whether you are in need of a snuggly tee shirt or a nice printed linen jumpsuit, the Chaser Brand Sample Sale has everything in between. The discounts were pretty good, in comparison the graphic tees sell for around $70 retail!

Overall, we gave this sale a 6.5/10. The pricing is very decent but the selection of merchandise is limited to lounge wear and a couple of dresses/jumpsuits. If you are in need of any lounge wear then look no further!

Halabaloo Sample Sale – Another Awesome Sample Sale for Kids

The Halabaloo sample sale was one of the best-priced sample sales for kids we have seen in a while. If you’re looking to have something affordable and dressy for your kids, this is one you definitely do not want to skip.

The sample sale is taking place on the ground floor all the way on 9th Ave. Sweetest staff, a ton of items and well-prices. There were plenty of cotton dresses, mostly sized from year 2 to year 12. Most items were in the $25 range and there was an awesome $5 table as well!

Aside from the distance from the mainland, this sale is a total winner. Giving it an 8 out of 10.
