Paul Andrew Sample Sale: Broken Hearts if You’re Not a 37

By: Cristina Martin

The Paul Andrew Sample sale is a match made heaven if you wear a size 37 in shoes. Compared to the other sizes *cough* 38 *cough,* 37 had an entire section devoted to the size. There really wasn’t much of a difference from the last sale. Men felt a bit disappointed with this sale. There were quite a few in line to be the first to grab a pair of Paul Andrew shoes. However, last sale had a better selection.

We rated the Paul Andrew sample sale a 6 out of 10. We would have totally given them a 9 out of 10 easily if they would just add more sizes. This is Paul Andrew’s MO to only have 37s because they put out true samples and very, very little overstock. Some shoes in other sizes were used and in crappy conditions. Those would cost you $50. If you are a size 37 stop by the Paul Andrew and stock up on stilettos for your hot V-day plans. Happy shopping!

Jocelyn Fur Sample Sale and Furry Vests Hats and Jackets

jocelyn fur sample sale

While the Jocelyn fur sample sale is definitely happening, we noticed that the Jocelyn Fur website is currently offering 50% off of everything on the website. That means that for many items you might be better off shopping online than at the sample sale.

Proceed with caution and wait for markdowns. 260 typically start marking down prices on Friday. In the case of Jocelyn furs, the markdowns are definitely worth waiting for. The fur is legit, but the quality sucks. Last year, the brand switched providers from the same company that produces Oscar de la Renta and other high-end fur out to China. When you touch and wear the coats, you can feel it. At the same time, the colors are fun and young. So if colored furs are your thing, the Jocelyn sample sale is one you should check out.

Canali Sample Sale with Gorgeous Jackets and Coats

canali sample sale

The Canali sample sale is taking place at Soiffer Haskin as usual. What we love most about any sample sale taking place at Soiffer Haskin is the calm and almost luxurious atmosphere that’s nearly absent from all other sample sales. The first day or two are typically most expensive. As the sample sale enters days 2 and 3 and 4 of the sample sale, prices start dropping further and further down (5%-10% a day) reaching 90% off in the last few hours.

The Canali sample sale was not cheap. However, the quality of the jackets, coats and shirts was exceptional. Jackets were 70%-75% off retail, shirts were 60% and pants were 75% off. Everything was organized by size. And there were plenty of accessories and shoes to go around as well. If you’d spend the money at retail, definitely hit up the Canali sample sale and get 3 times the amount of merchandise for your buck.

We Can Keep a Secret if You Can: The Opening Ceremony Sample Sale

Opening Ceremony Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Opening Ceremony is having a “secret” sale, which is basically a sample sale. Why is it such a big secret? Well, for starters everything was under $100. That is amazing for a very popular street fashion brand. Accessories started at $15 and coats went up to $95. They had the cutest faux fur coats for $95 that are very in this season and will keep you super warm!

We rated the Opening Ceremony sample sale a 7 out of 10. Prices were excellent, but there wasn’t any merchandise there to die for. There were also only two pairs of shoes on display. However, the room was a decent size filled with about 12 racks of clothing. Right now the sale is scheduled to be open two days, but we predict they will extend. We are recommending that you check out the Opening Ceremony sample sale. There are no “wow pieces,” but you can definitely stock up on the cheap. Happy shopping!

Illesteva Sample Sale Offers Designer Sunglasses for 50 Off Retail

illesteva sample sale

We’re huge fans of the Illesteva brand and were very happy to learn that the brand is hosting a sample sale. Sale was very orderly. Each customer who came in was handed a tray so that he/she can hold the picks of sunnies. Staff was really sweet as well.

As far as the merchandise is concerned, there was a lot to choose from in terms of styles and colors. The pricing could have been a lot better. Some of the styles weren’t even 50% off! Also, they charged $10 for a case even if one purchased a pair of glasses. We did not appreciate that extra charge at all. We’re hoping for markdowns on the last day – we’ll definitely be coming back to this one.

Alala Sample Sale Has Plenty of Athleisure

alala sample salealala sample sale

The Alala sample sale was small and messy but amazing on the pricing side. The merchandise was spread over a ton of boxes and hangers, and if you wanted to find something, you had to do some quality digging.

If you did have the patience to dig through the boxes, there was some amazing merchandise to be found. A lot of workout clothes, particularly sports bras and tops. We didn’t find too many leggings. Most items were priced in the $10-$20 range. If you like working out, check the Alala sample sale out before it ends.

Nicholas K Sample Sale with Hats and Separates

nicholas k sample sale shopdrop review

The Nicholas K sample sale in SoHo has a lot of contemporary merchandise for up to 80% off. From the items we were able to find, there were many different sizes, quite a few clothing options that included dresses, separates and accessories. The quality of the items is good – but the prices aren’t too cheap either. Many items cost in the $100-$250 range.

The staff was really sweet. They offered our VIP users 25% off online and off current merchandise as well. When you hit up the sale, remember to mention ShopDrop for your additional discount. Prices below.

Everything is 50 at the Parker NY Sample Sale

parker ny sample sale

This 2-day Parker NY sample sale is different from the 5-day sales at 260. Number one – the prices are quite impressive. Everything at the sale, yes, that means everything, was $50. That included sweaters, short dresses, long dresses, tops, skirts and pants (although we didn’t find too many of those).

The place was pretty empty – there were 5-7 people the whole 2 hours after work, which should be peak hours but obviously weren’t. The 12 racks were spread in a semi-circle in the showroom, and the fitting room was a makeshift one out of racks and rags.

The staff was on the ruder side (I don’t love getting screamed out for standing an inch too much to the right), the place was clean. Were there sizes? Most items were small, although I did spot a size 14 and a number of mediums. If you’re willing to dig around and want some $50 finds, head on over before the sale ends.

heroine sport sample sale

Thanks to Heroine Sport for giving us a sneak peak of the sample sale. There room was filled with sweatshirts (the jacket kind), leggings, bras and tops – all ranging in price from $30 to $75 for outerwear. The place was organized, staff was nice, and prices amazing for this kind of merchandise.

If you’re into athleisure and like spending your mornings sipping green juice in a bra top and leggings, definitely hit the Heroine sample sale up. It’s worth the trip downtown.
