Park Yourself at the Parker Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Parker Sample Sale has some great merch, if you are a size small. I was disappointed in the lack of sizes at this sale but other than that, they literally have so much and all for under $100. All samples are $35 and they have a ton of gorgeous dresses and gowns on the sample racks. All leather is $70 which is such a discount for the amazing leather pieces they have. Everything else for the most part is $50 besides for Parker Black which is $70 for short dresses and $85 for gowns.

They have a small selection of shoes for $20 which is very worth it to check out. I scored a pair of thigh high boots for $20 and I am not mad! Overall, I gave this sale an 8/10, the only thing that could have been better was having more sizes but other than that you should be checking this sale out!

Brooks Brothers Sample Sale – This Time for Men Only

brooks brothers warehouse sale 2019

We caught wind of the Brooks Brothers warehouse sale at the last minute. This is a sale our guys look forward to for months, because that’s when they get to look all British and proper without spending the big bucks. The warehouse sale took place in the same warehouse as last year near their flagship store in midtown. The place was organized well, with large pricing signs.

Sadly, there were no shoes at this sale and there were no items for the ladies. However, whatever they did have was gorgeous and well-priced. There was definitely a buy-more save-more thing going on, where 1 tie was going for $25 but 6 were selling for $100. One suit was $500, 2 – $900 – see how you saved $100 bucks right there. There was a room and a half of shirt boxes – 3 for $100. Plenty of coats and sport coats as well. Vests were selling for $60, pants for $80 or $110.

For men who like to look sharp, this sale is a definite go! 8 out of 10 for me.

Lots of Merch at the DVF Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The DVF Sample Sale is such a good sale to go to. The prices are really good and they have a lot in all sizes. They have so many racks out all organized by size which was great because you can go to the rack labeled with your size and know that everything on the rack will be good for you. They have a really good selection of shoes and bags that you need to hit up early, these go FAST.

This sale had lines to get in and was super crowded. Though they will be discounted later in the week, this sale is super popular for the discounts. I can’t imagine what it will be like the last couple of days! Jewelry was a pretty good deal at $15 and so are shoes for $65 but they didn’t seem to have a lot of sizes.

I gave this sale a 7.5/10, discounts are worth the trip!!!

Tibi Sample Sale – Super Organized

By: Riva Neumann 

The Tibi Sample Sale , held at the 150 Greene Street 260 location, is a good place to check out if you are in the neighborhood. The merchandise at this sale is great and very organized. The prices are pretty ok but still expensive, you’ll definitely be spending a pretty penny here. They have a lot statement pieces, my favorite being an amazing orange faux fur coat for $249. They also have a lot of size variety which was great.

The shoes were really great and a must have at this sale. Shoes range from $99-$149 and there are so many its actually crazy how much they have. These blue metallic mules for $125 were my favorite and are a statement shoe that everyone needs and that I didn’t even know I needed.

I gave this sale an 8/10, go check it out!

The Paul Smith Sample Sale has Very Limited Options for Women

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Paul Smith sample sale is pretty much just for men. The whole front half of the showroom is filled with men’s clothing and there are about three racks of women’s clothes in the back of the room along one wall. So girls, don’t get your hopes up going to this sale unless you can fit into men’s clothes or you’re buying for your boyfriend/husband.

For the guys, there are tons of sport coats and suit jackets, trousers and jeans, t-shirts and button-downs, and shoes. Prices are a bit high in my opinion, the discounts are mostly about 60%-70% off which is okay, but not amazing. As for the ladies, the best options are the trousers, and the worst are the tops. There were hardly any shirts and the ones that they did have were meh. There were a couple of nice work dresses but they were pricey!

Overall I rated this sale a 6/10. In my opinion, it is just not worth waiting on line for.

The Aquazzura Sample Sale is Ridiculously Over Overpriced

By: Jacqueline Munro

In classic 260 fashion, the Aquazzura sample sale prices are way too high. Prices start at $180 and range all the way up to $485. And while $180 doesn’t sound terrible, the majority of the shoes were between $220 and $275. In my opinion that is just absurd. This is a sample sale people!?? I mean, has that word completely lost its meaning?

Despite the disappointing prices though, the selection of merchandise was quite wonderful. I walked in and felt like I was suddenly swimming in a sea of Aquazzura boxes. Not only was there a nice array of styles, but there were also tons of sizes starting at 34 and going up to 41! I was very pleased with the selection of powder puff shoes. They were stocked with various heel heights and plenty of colors, but I felt like $230 for them was just too much! They also had lots of PVC shoes which are still super in.

Overall I rated this sale a 6.5/10. If you’re an Aquazzura fanatic who always pays full price, you might feel like it is worth it to go. But if you’re someone like me who loves the shoes but can’t afford to pay full price, don’t go because you won’t be able to afford the sample sale prices either!!!!

Chuckies Moving Sale – Kind of a Fraud

chuckles moving sale

The Chuckies ‘moving’ sale is what we like to call FALSE ADVERTISING. First of all, they hosted a ‘liquidation’ sale in July, which wasn’t liquidation since they are still very much in business. And now they advertise this moving sale with items up to 90% off.

We get to the sale and there are like two and a half items at 90% off retail, and everything else is barely 50% off. So I don’t even know if I believe that they are really moving. Hate lies. Yes there were quite a few brands, but the prices were nowhere near where prices should be at a sample sale.

Given the loss of trust, I’m giving this sale a 0 out of 10. Shame on you. SKIP.

This Might Be the Best Prive Sample Sale Yet

I generally have a lukewarm feeling about the Prive sample sales, which take place at Chelsea Market. Most of the time, the atmosphere is great, the place is well lit, the staff nice. The pricing is not the cheapest but it’s not horrible either, and brands are contemporary to high-end.

Imagine how excited I was today when I walked into the sale to find 2 racks of Versace hoodies and t-shirts. Granted, they were for men – but still. Versace?! Then there were beautiful Derek Lam coats – the puffers with the fur collars selling for $350. We loved them. And there were some Elizabeth and James coat selling for $59! That was my favorite item of the night.

Other brands with awesome selections were Vince (for tees, shirts  and shoes for women), Milly (kids, adults, dresses, skirts, sweaters and pants), Elizabeth and James (blazers, dresses and coats). All in all, this is a great sale for some staple sweaters. I’m giving it an 8 out of 10. Peace.

You Literally Need To Be At the Edie Parker Sample Sale Right Now

By: Riva Neumann 

The Edie Parker sample sale had me super excited since these clutches and bags are so adorable and literally everyone I know has one. The sample sale has so many pieces and the prices are pretty good. Clutches range from $300-$500. They had initial ones in black and gold, some really cute pattered ones and some fun sayings (my personal favorite being “QUEEN”.

Other merchandise included napkins for $50, keychains for $35, coasters for $100, Iphone cases for $10 and boxes for $200-$300. Python bags were also available for $600. Overall, I gave this sale an 8/10. The merchandise is so good and the discounts are fire! The staff was also super nice and helpful!

Eberjey and La Ligne Sample Sale Literally the Same as the Last One

By: Riva Neumann 

The Eberjey and La Ligne Sample Sales looked very familiar when I walked into 260 sample sale. I then realized I had seen almost everything at the last sample sale they had. It seems like their sample sale inventory just takes a trip to the store for a week and then goes back into storage, just waiting for the next one. Prices are good, like $22 for a bra and $35 for a teddy but it really doesn’t seem worth the trip. Pajamas are $55 and robes are also.

La Ligne had a lot of sample racks ranging from $25-$100. Everything else was between 40%-70% off. They have a lot of merchandise but it’s more effort than its worth to actually go through it unless you know what you want.

I gave this sale a 6.5, prices are good, and they have a lot but it is not a sale I would go out of my way for.
