Zadig and Voltaire Annual Sample Sales for Men and Women Full of Current Merchandise

zadig voltaire sample sale men women 2019

It’s that time of year again when Zadig & Voltaire takes over two storefronts in SoHo to discount the brands’ (very recent merchandise) for up to 70% off. For those who frequent the regular sample sale, this isn’t it. The price cuts aren’t as steep, but the merchandise is much more current and the shopping experience more pleasant. All pricing is on a sticker basis (certain colors = certain percentages off) and range from 30% off to 70% off. We’ll discuss both in details below and keep on scrolling for address & photos.

Zadig & Voltaire for women: nice large space that is very well organized. The staff was super helpful and sweet. Tons of knits, jackets, and shoes. Most of the merchandise fell between the orange sticker, which was 40% off. Keep in mind though, that it was really 40% off the outlet price (lower than the actual retail price) so overall it was a pretty decent deal with a price cut of 60% off at the end of the day. Of merchandise that was 70% off, there was some, not a whole lot. At the end of the day, the pricing at the warehouse sale was higher than the 260 bi-annual sample sale, but the items were current, and the shopping experience top-notch. 

Zadig & Voltaire for men: the space was smaller than the women’s, but still a decent amount of merchandise. Most of it was 60% off the lowest ticketed price. If you purchased three or more items, you got them all for 70% off. The sales staff was so sweet and helpful. Lots of jackets, a good amount of them were leather. A few shoes but not a huge selection. If you’re looking to revamp the closet of your beau, definitely check this one out.

Modern Vice Sample Sale Spring 2019

modern vice sample sale

We loved the last 2 sample sales we visited and we are excited for this Modern Vice sample sale as well. It did not disappoint. Hosted in the Modern Vice headquarters in the fashion district of New York, the sale offered multi-leveled shelves filled with shoes, slip-on, and boots. The footwear was organized by size and ranged in price from $149-$249, reaching up to 70% off retail.

The staff was extremely sweet and helpful and worked with you until you found a pair of boots that suited you perfectly. An additional perk is that the manufacturing studio, hidden in the back of the showroom. You can choose any top of the shoe you like, and they’ll craft the shoe especially for you right then and there. If you’re looking for amazing-quality footwear that will last you through the rough winter season of NY, this sample sale is a must.

Mainly Jackets at the Lud Sample Sale

the lud sample sale

The Lud Sample Sale was one of those interesting, down-time winter sales, where you could find items from a contemporary brand at a discount. It’s no jaw-dropping brands at 90% off but it’s something.

The Lud sample sale is located in a basement location, staff is quite sweet, mostly jackets selling for $250-$500, many sizes and lots of fur items. In fact, if you mention ShopDrop at checkout, you’ll get an extra 10% off. Thank us later!

Clothingline Kicks Off 2019 with a Massive Blowout Sample Sale

clothingline blowout sale

In the past year, Clothingline has been hosting less independent sales and more blowout sales, where leftovers from previous sample sales sell for dirt cheap. To kick off 2019, the sample sale house launched another blowout sale, advertising that most items will be under $35.

We stood in line and checked out the sale to see if the rumors were true. They were. Plenty of contemporary brands selling for $5-$35. EFM, Halston (capped at $35), Eva Franco, Alala (sport bras and leggings for $10)m Schutz shoes for $10 (yes, the most random sizes and styles – and you might never find a 2nd shoe – but still? $10? We’re glad we went).

The Kleinfeld Sample Sale leaves Brooklyn and Surprises Us in Jersey

Kleinfeld Pop up Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Bye, Bye Brooklyn! The Kleinfeld pop sample sale has now entered the infamous “6th borough,” New Jersey. The Kleinfeld sample sale popped up in Mill Creek Mall. The space, already designated for evening gown sales as it is a prom dress store, is the perfect place for a bride to be to browse through thousands of dresses with ease. The location was enormous. We checked it out in the evening, and there was only a hand full of shoppers.

We rated the Kleinfeld pop up sample sale an 8 out of 10. There were a ton of beautiful dresses to match any bride’s style. They also had a range of sizes from small to large. Prices started in the $1,000 range and went up to the $5,000 range. You can also shop vails (in a few colors, including back) and beautiful floral and jeweled headpieces. It is worth crossing water and heading to Jersey for this sale. Secaucus is also very close to the Lincoln Tunnel. Buses from Port Authority will drop you off right in front of the mall. This is the to be if you have a big day coming up. Congratulations, and happy shopping!

Manolo Blahnik Markdowns Begin This Week

manolo blahnik boutique sale

Since we had a ton of questions about the Manolo Boutique sale, let us clarify. The boutique sale is different from the sample sale. The boutique sale lasts for over a month in the regular store on 54th St. Prices drop gradually. The sample sale takes place for one day in  a hotel in NY sometime in May, is cash only and has long lines to get in.

So this is the boutique sale 🙂 so far prices are at 30% off retail. Next dropdown will take place on January 21st. There are lots of shoe options (classics and black), a great variety in size and the staff was quite sweet. If you want to check out the iconic brand at a discount to retail, add the boutique sale to your next NYC trip then.

Bralettes and Dresses at the Miaou Sample Sale

miaou sample sale

The Miaou brand, famous for its prints, stylish dresses and bra-tops is hosting a sample sale with clothing up to 70% off.  The sample sale featured a range of workwear, outerwear and sportswear – all for under $200. Considering the fact that the brand sells items that start at $300+, the prices are amazing.

If you’re into cute denim crop tops and adorable silk dresses & want to look like Gigi Hadid, this sample sale is one you shouldn’t miss!

ABOUT MIAOU:

Miaou is a celebration of the female form that embodies the modern woman – versatile, iconic, and bold.

Founded in 2016 by Alexia Elkaim, the brand was created out of a personal need for a novel pair of jeans with the perfect fit for her curvy body – something that seemed to be missing in the market. The journey began with denim – primarily focusing on embellishing pants, which quickly turned into a line of matching sets. The fashion label’s unique aesthetic resonates with all women of different shapes, sizes, and cultures. Miaou’s Muses were and still continue to be the designer’s friends, such as Paloma Esser, Jorja Smith, Emily Ratajkowski, and Bella and Gigi Hadid, who have helped cultivate an organic cult following of girls and community of inspiring women that continues to grow each season. With the launch of the highly anticipated Sport collection in 2018, Miaou continues to adapt – growing into a full ready-to-wear collection available at retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman, Brown’s, Kirna Zabete, Nordstrom, and Moda Operandi, among others.

We’re especially appreciative when it’s absolutely freezing outside and we can shop from the comfort of our own bed without compromising on quality.

Below is a run-down of our most favorite deals. Most of them don’t last more than a few hours, so check them out while they still last!

Vince Sale for Men was Freakin Awesome

Vince Mens sample sale fall 2018

Right next door to the Kooples store, there was an awesome 3-day Vince sample sale for men hosted by Prive (although not in the regular Chelsea Market location). Although the girls on our team were sad not to get some Vince goodies, the guys were in seventh heaven.

The prices were reasonable for Vince but a bit high for many of our followers (mostly between $50 and $200) plenty of jackets, pants, shirts, sweaters and coats. If you’re a fan of the brand, this was a sale you definitely wouldn’t want to miss.

260 Sample Sale Artis Dr. Jart+ Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop Stila Tocca

Low Prices at the Stila, Artis, Tocca, and Dr. Jart+ Sample Sale

Stila, Artis, Tocca, and Dr. Jart+

By Melanie Capruso

Finally a sample sale with reasonable prices! The Stila, Artis, Tocca, and Dr. Jart+ sample sale with 260 featured endless items at quality prices. Each brand had their own section which features all their classic items. The Dr. Jart+ area had their face masks and signature skin care products. Tocca had the back section with their signature candles, perfumes, and bath products. The artis showing was less then expected, with mostly sets of brush. The Stila section was the most expansive with eyeshadows, both glitter and matte, foundation, primers, eyeliners, lipstick, highlighter, and lipliner. Out of all of the brands, Dr. Jart+ had the least amount of products. This could be because I went on day 3 of the sale.

While this sale earned a high rating of 9 out of 10 for the variety of products and the ;ow prices, it did loose a point for the congestion. Both times I went, I had to wait in a long, impatient line. The first time is was below 30ºF and the second time it was raining. It certainly ruins the experience when I enter the building soaking wet.
