What You Don’t Understand About Sample Sales

sample sales nyc, sample sales new york,

By Maura McNulty

Sample sales are arguably New York’s best kept secret–its how we stay chic, while still being able to afford to order delivery every night. If you know how to approach a sample sale, chances are you’ll walk out of the store with some sweet designer discounts.

So, what exactly are sample sales? Talk to anyone in marketing, and they will tell you that a shortage of products is a failure on the part of the company. Despite what people think, high-end designers never want to be sold out of a product; the goal is to make as many sales as possible, so most clothing companies produce excess clothes to ensure that everyone who is willing to buy their products will be able to do so.

Because of this, at the end of each season there’s an excess of clothes and accessories that they were unable to sell. Cue the sample sale: in order to make a bonus profit, brands will sell their surplus for more affordable prices for a few days; some brands selling items for up to 90% off of the original retail price.

Finding sample sales can be a little tricky; a lot of people make the mistake of thinking that the sales rack in a store is the same thing. It’s not; the better deals are usually in an office building in New York or Los Angeles, because the designers usually use a third party to host the sample sale for them.

Before you grab a coffee and prepare for a day of light shopping, be warned: these sales are packed with people in a large room, rummaging through the racks in order to find that perfect dress. There’s an adrenaline rush akin to the one a kid gets when someone cracks a pinata open and the candy falls to the ground. Except it isn’t candy, it’s the last pair of Jimmy Choo heels that are 70% off, and they’re in your size! So It’s best to come prepared with comfortable shoes for your treasure hunt.

If you find yourself in New York this summer, skip the rainbow bagels and head over to a sample sale to hunt for the biggest discounts on designer goods. Just be sure to download ShopDrop first to find out where the best sales in the city are located.

Musings about Miista from Lexi

Last week I boarded the downtown A train feeling comfy and confident in a soft blue shift dress I purchased from Old Navy for the ridiculous price of $8. I always receive compliments on the dress due to its functional combo of both comfort and class. Whenever people ask where I purchased I, they’re usually pretty surprised with the answer.

When I stepped out off of the subway, the bounce in my step imitated that of a deflated beach ball, as I acknowledged my dress, on another girl, walking into the same building that I was. Well, so much for that…

Spontaneous Fashion Show in Union Square Park

Improv Fashion Show in Union Square Park

This Summer is all about celebrating fashion, pride and self confidence. At ShopDrop, where we celebrate affordable high-end designer clothing, we just couldn’t resist. We decided to have a good time, and so we set out to Union Square Park to stage an improv fashion show.

This is how it worked. We showed up in the park with some chalk, drew a ShopDrop logo on the ground and two lines, which marked the ‘runway’. We turned on some music, pulled out some kind bars, donned some awesome sample sale attire, and started walking over to random park guests to ask them if they felt like modeling in our improv fashion show.

Of course, we got a few people who looked at us as if we fell from the moon, but for the most part we created a fun distraction from the stressful life many New Yorkers lead. What was awkward at first became comic relief in the end, and all those who modeled in our show were rolling with laughter by the time they got to the end of the aisle.

‘Special, that’s what I feel,’ said Rich, one of our models. A woman walked down with her two puppies, and a group of friends with flowers rocked the runway as well. We are going to try a bigger improv show in a month. If you want to walk or just be there, shoot us an email at estee@shopdrop.app with the subject line of IMPROV FASHION SHOW.

Happy Happy Holidays to you!

Trend Alert! My Crush on Mule Shoes

shopdrop, sample sales, sample sales nyc,

By Francine Szerer

Winter is long gone and Summer is in full bloom (well mostly). Our tired feet can finally be free! But, as an adamant No Toe shower, my options are limited. Well, were limited. That’s until the mule trend came swooping in full force. What were once cramped up feet in knee high snow boots are now happy, free feet peeking out of fashionable slides.

As a lover of all things pajama and sleep, I welcomed this slipper trend with so much excitement. Fashion has never been this comfortable. Not that I ever really cared, I began sporting the slipper trend my senior year of high school the second it began, senioritis is an actual thing. I would wear my Ugg slippers every. single. day. No matter the weather (it was always hot, I grew up in South Florida.)

You can rock some serious comfort and style with the new and improved version of my high school favorites.

But, furry slippers is not why we’re here. The shoe of Summer 2017 is the mule (or slides, whatever makes you most comfortable.)

There are endless ways to comfortably adorn your feet. You can opt for the flat, open toe sandal kind like these super cool Steve Madden pearly kind. Or if you’re looking to dress thongs up, you can go for my personal favorite— mules with a slight block heel like these gorgeous Loeffler Randall ones.

Theory Men Sample Sale Review

By William Guzman

 If there’s one type of person I truly pity, it is he or she who has no choice but to pay full price for their clothes because they have no idea what a sample sale is. Just a couple of months ago, I was that person. Funny thing is, I had no idea what I was missing out on – but now that I have been enlightened, I refuse to go back to living in the dark. Attending Theory’s sample sale not only reinforces that notion, but cements it into my very DNA.

theory sample sale, 260 sample sale, sample sale nyc, sample sale new york, william guzman

My eyes couldn’t believe what they were seeing, clearly these discounts must be too good to be true. Like these blue straight-legged pants with tapered hems I fell in love with that retail for $225 but can be yours for only $50 bucks. Other notable deals include button downs (retail: $225, discounted price: $50), hoodies (retail: $195, discounted price: $65), elegant vests (retail: $500, discounted price: $155), and blazers (retail price: $525, discounted price: $155). Although hard to outdo, the prices weren’t the only great aspects of the sale. Equally as awesome was the staff, who were both friendly and helpful. I gotta give a special shoutout to Amoy, who made my shopping experience go as smooth as possible by answering all my questions and was eager to help.
