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?

  • Gucci Marmont Bag in Blue Crushed Velvet – scored for 50% off!

The Staud Sample Sale is not for the Faint of Heart

staud sample sale 2019

By: Jacqueline Munro

I have never felt so unwelcome at a sample sale before; it’s as if the employees (well one in particular) forgot that I was a paying customer looking to spend money at their sale. It was disgusting the way I was heckled and embarrassed at the door regarding my ability to enter the sale. I am extremely disappointed in 260 for hiring someone like this to manage the special entry hours.

Aside from that dreadful experience though, the discounts were inconsistent. By that I mean some pieces were priced very well and others were a total rip off. They had lots of funky clothing items as well as a few bathing suits. The bags though were my favorite (and only redeeming) part of the sale. They had all of their classics including the Shirley and Moreau. Usually, if brands have their classic pieces at their sample sale, they are weird colors or sizes, but they had a great variety of neutrals and brights, and large vs. small. I was satisfied by the selection, but it was really hard to figure out the prices of the bags which was super annoying.

Overall I rated the Staud sample sale5/10. I was completely disgusted with the way I was treated upon entering the sale, and I was not happy with the organization of the showroom either; It was a complete madhouse. If they didn’t have the nice bags I would have given it a 1, but I’d like to consider myself a generous person.

They Totally Nailed it at the Rails Sample Sale

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Rails sample sale has some of the most impressive discounts I’ve seen at a 260 sale in a while. And not only are the prices on point, but the merchandise is also super cute! I’m really happy that I went to this sale especially because the clothing is in season! There’s nothing worse than going to a sample sale and buying clothing that you cant wear for three months.

There are plenty of current Rails pieces at this sample sale. Some of the shirts selling for $45 at the sale are on their website for $148 right now. There are tons of cute, soft tops, an abundance of adorable dresses, as well as some super fun jackets and bottoms. All of the items are perfect for the current weather situation. I had to restrain myself from spending every dollar on me. In addition to the plentiful amount of women’s clothing, there is a small section for men and children. The kid’s clothes are so cute that I bought my little cousin two shirts that she won’t even fit in for two years (oopsie).

Overall I’m giving this sale an 8/10. The discounts are great and the huge selection of clothing is more than satisfying. Definitely head over to this sale if you’re looking to enhance your summer wardrobe!

La Perla Sample Sale – What Do You Mean There Are No Dressing Rooms?

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had a chance to get a preview of the La Perla Sample Sale happening at 260 fifth avenue. The La Perla Sample Sale opens tomorrow morning, so if you are in need of some new lingerie for your lover, we recommend you take a look.

The sale featured tons of swimwear, bustiers/garters and classic lingerie. There was a large selection of swimwear, including lots of tops, bottoms and one pieces. While the selection of ready to wear was not great, but if you had the patience to dig through there were some hidden gems. There was a small collection of mens as well as shoes for woman.

Overall we rated the sale a 6 out of 10. First off, the fact that there are no dressing rooms is ridiculous. How are you supposed to buy a bathing suit, dress or bra without trying it on?! The selection of ready to wear was meh and the pricing on everything was still high.
