What the Clever Alice Pop-Up Sample Sale is all About

Yesterday was the first time I went to check out the Clever Alice Pop-Up, even though the concept  store has been around since 2008. Tammie, the owner, collects items from over 5 indie designers, and sells their items for 70% off retail. Among the racks, I found HEARTLOOM – extremely cute jumpers, tops, skirts and dresses – most of them selling for $20. Porto is a clothing designer that takes…

Bags and Gowns at the Vintage Chanel & Hermes Sample Sale

ShopDrop

The high-end brand sample sales are harder to come by than contemporary ones. Therefore, the vintage Chanel & Hermes sale hosted by Shelly & Renee is probably the closest you could get to an actual Chanel sample sale. There was only one table of handbags ranging in the $1K-$5K price points, a rack of Chanel jackets (in the $1,500 range), dresses, 4 or 5 pairs of shoes in random sizes.…

Shirts Coats & Shoes at the THEORY Sample Sale for Men

The Theory Sample Sale for Men received a 5 out of 10. While the merchandise was fresh-looking and plentiful, prices were barely 60% off retail. Most pants still cost $99, coats $299, and shoes $169. Compared to the Hugo Boss sample sale, where you could find shoes for $100, this is an expensive alternative. If you are used to buying Theory at full-price then this sale is perfect for you.…

Cocktail Dresses & Evening Gowns for Under $200 at the Carmen Marc Valvo Sample Sale

Since my engagement dress came from Carmen Marc Valvo, I was excited to see that the brand was hosting a sample sale. Considering the fact that I got married way before I knew about the existence of sample sales, I spent a hefty $1,200 on the dress. At the sample sale all cocktail dresses retailed for $100, and all evening gowns sold for $200. Most styles came in numerous sizes…

Red Carpet Gowns at the J Mendel Private Sample Sale

J Mendel Sample Sale Review ShopDrop App

It’s the J Mendel private sample sale again, and that means days of planning, appointment setting, building up of expectations. We went last night to check the sale out before opening. The good news is that the sale is in a large retail area with plenty of room to browse and try on items. The bad news is that dresses still cost quite a bit. We awarded the sale a…

Pumps, Blazers & Other British Finds at the L.K. Bennett Sample Sale

L K Bennett Sample Sale review on ShopDrop

I was excited to check out the LK Bennett sample sale, because the brand is one of Kate Middleton’s favorites and a staple of the British wardrobe. The sale took place in the company office on Madison Ave, the setup nice and relaxed, no lines and (sadly for us) no pictures. Don’t worry though, I took a good look and am including a verbal report below – hope this helps. And…

However, their shoe selection was rather limited. Now prices… We…
