Fashion J Mendel Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review Shelly and Renee ShopDrop

You Will Feel Like a Princess at the J Mendel Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Today we previewed the J Mendel sample sale, and boy were we blown away! Shelly and Renee hosted the sale in Midtown this time around. At the J Mendel sample sale, you can choose from a gorgeous selection of dresses, both evening gowns, and cocktail dresses. The selection included both fall/winter and spring/summer dresses, but there was slightly more of spring/summer dresses. If you begin to feel a little chilly in your evening gown, then pair it with a fur coat. Beautiful coats of different kinds of furs, lengths, and styles were on display. They even had fur shawls and wraps to pair with an evening gown. If you’re not in the market for evening wear at the moment, the J Mendel sample sale also featured a few racks with casual dresses, pants, skirts, and shorts. There was also a small table with colorful handbags and wallets!

We rated the J Mendel sample sale a 9 out of 10. We were very pleased with the overall experience. I do admit, prices are high, but you are getting J Mendel for a huge discount. This is definitely an investment sale. The merchandise was beautiful and available in both small and large sizes. There was truly something for everyone there. On the other hand, pricing was a bit confusing. They used a colored sticker system, but not every item had a sticker. The staff was kind enough to help out and clarify. Lastly, I can’t get over how sweet the staff was. That was the cherry on top of my trip to the J Mendel sale. There was one gentleman that assisted me from beginning to end with everything I needed. He was literally the best! If you have a big event coming up or just want to splurge go to the J Mendel sample sale. Happy shopping!

The Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale: Take Two

By: Cristina Martin 

Two time’s a charm, I guess, for the Roberto Cavalli sample sale. Roberto Cavalli hosted a sample sale just last month at Clothingline. You can read all about how awful that sale was in our full report. This time Soiffer Haskin has taken the Roberto Cavalli burden on and is attempting to rid the merchandise for the brand. Let me tell you, there are clear improvements. Roberto Cavalli is a brand for people who have a flashier taste. (Absolutely nothing wrong with that.) This Roberto Cavalli sample sale had clothing, shoes, and accessories for both the flashy and the subtle dresser. Even some of the flashy items were cute! They had jackets with beautiful beading and patterns. The beautiful beadwork continued onto jeans with unique flower patterns. On the other hand, the horrendous snakeskin outfits were brought from the last sale to haunt us.

We rated the Roberto Cavalli Sample sale a 6 out of 10. They went up three points since the quality and quantity of the merchandise improved.  However, the prices are still very high. I understand that the brand prices in the thousands, but $480 for a Roberto Cavalli jacket is still a bit high in my opinion. Just like the last sale, men make out the best. Men had an array of handsome traditional and non-traditional suits. Men can also browse through sweaters, casual wear, and shoes. There was also a selection of funky pieces, but men’s was definitely tamer. Unfortunately, photos were not allowed at the Roberto Cavalli, but we managed to sneak in some for you all. If you have any questions, please DM us on Instagram (@shopdropapp). Happy shopping!

Creature Comforts at the Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kate Spade Bedding Sample Sale

Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Kate Spade bedding sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Confession: I love Calvin Klein bedding! Their sheets and shams are incredibly soft and feel like you’re lying in a cloud. So I was extremely excited to stop by the Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kate Spade bedding sample sale today. The sale was in a large room with bins of sheets, duvets, shams and throws lining the walls, with a separate room for towel sets. Most of the pieces were Calvin Klein sheets, which came in muted greys, blues, and white. The pieces were generally organized by brand, then style, then size. Most of the pieces are Full/Queen, which is the bedding sample size, but there also plenty of King options. The only pieces that came in Twin or TwinXL were one style of Kate Spade duvet covers.

We rated this sale a 9 out of 10 because of the great selection and the amazing prices. I walked away with two Kate Spade duvet sets and only spent $40; normal retail price for both items would be $200. Everything is under $40! But, everything is cash only, so make sure to stop by an ATM before heading over!

Move Over Canada Goose the Herno Sample is in Town

Herno Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The first Herno sample sale has hit the streets of Manhattan. Herno is a hot, up and coming Italian outerwear brand. You can find them right next to Canada Goose in Nordstrom. Now you can find them for 70% off in midtown. They had a large selection of both men’s and women’s coats, sweaters, and furs. At 70% off you can score a coat for a few hundred dollars.

The staff was incredibly sweet, and the space was great for shopping. However, you can expect long lines. They are also only accepting credit cards. Ditch your jacket from last year and head over to the Hanro sample sale for a new model. Winter is coming, and they are saying it’s going to be a cold one! Happy shopping!

Reminisce back to Summer at the Jack Rogers Sample Sale

Jack Rogers Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Do you think we can squeeze in a few more days of flipflop use in this rather warm October? I think not. The cold might be here to stay, but you can still head over to the Jack Rogers sample sale and cure that nostalgia with some shopping. Jack Rogers is known for their adorable leather sandals. All shoes were $40. Handbags were also $40 and backpacks were $30. If you purchase 4 or more pairs of shoes you get 50% off your entire order. Not a bad deal! The Jack Rogers sample sale also had the cutest little rain booties. If you like to stand out, then red and yellow are for you. If you’re more into laying low, then definitely go for the beautiful power pink ones.

We rated the Jack Rogers sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. It’s a great sale if you’re a fan of the brand. Good prices and lots of great merchandise. Sizes went from 5 to 11, but there was an abundance in size 7. Additionally, you can look through a few bins of clothing for $5, $25, and $45 to see if something suits your fancy. We do have to report that they were having an issue with their credit card machine. Being that the sale is credit card only, they were taking down your credit card information to then charge you later. They did promise to destroy all credit card information once the transaction has been processed. Happy shopping!

Inside the Lanvin Sample Sale

Lanvin Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The private Lanvin sample sale officially kicked off on Sunday. Since it is a private sample sale you need an invitation to attend. Luckily, we made it inside to report back to you.

The Lanvin sample sale is held in a tiny space, packed with women’s and men’s clothing, accessories, shoes, and people. Prices were incredible! Everything was 80% off with the exception of the gowns which were at 90% off. That is incredible for Lanvin. I loved the women’s jackets and blazers. They were gorgeous! Men’s suits were also stunning. They even received archival pieces directly from France! Accessories consisted mostly of scarves for women and bow ties for men. They also had a pretty large selection of shoes. However, size 38 was going fast! People were inquiring about handbags. According to the sales associate they all went the first day, and they will be expecting a new shipment later this week. So… open to the public any time soon??? We don’t know just yet, but when we do, you will be the first to know. Happy shopping!

It’s a Thirty Seven Heaven at the Paul Andrew Sample Sale

paul andrew sample sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We had the opportunity to check out the Paul Andrew sample sale a day before it opened. Let me tell you, If you are a size 37, (roughly 7 in a U.S.) you hit the jackpot! Paul Andrew had a mix of samples, shoes from previous seasons, and shoes that never went to production. You are super lucky if you got to snag a one of a kind pair of Paul Andrew shoes. Prices started at $25 and went up to $250. However, there weren’t many in the $25 price point. We found only two damaged pairs for $25. Boots were mostly at the $250. Flats and heels were between $50 and $150. If you have an extra special event coming up, then you can browse through two tables of beautiful jeweled evening shoes. Men, we didn’t forget about you! (But Paul Andrew is) They are no longer making men’s shoes. Men can grab most shoes for $100!

We also loved the Paul Andrew showroom.  It is tucked away on 58th St. between Columbus Circle and the Plaza in a residential building. Very Gossip Girl-esque! In conclusion, you have two days to shop the Paul Andrew sample sale. We recommend you go the first day because inventory is limited, and they are not restocking. Happy shopping!

Formal Suits and Dresses at the Reiss Sample Sale

reiss sample sale

If you’re into proper contemporary British brands and are on the formal side, then you might be happy with the Reiss sample sale. Prices are average for 260, which means you’ll find stuff mostly in the $100-$200 range, and the merchandise is good for the office. The reviews from visitors was mixed, with some people feeling like they struck gold and others disappointed that they found nothing after standing in line for half an hour.

Refill Your Underwear Drawer at the Hanky Panky Sample Sale

hanky panky sample sale

It’s that time of year again when brands are just throwing their merchandise at you with all those sample sales. And Hanky Panky rented out Chelsea Market to sell chemises, bras and of course their famous thongs. Not that I’m speaking from experiences, but their thongs are probably up there with cosabella. They retail for $35 and at the sample sale they are selling for $12 a piece, and if you buy 12 you get one pair free. Up to you to decide if you’re spending $120 on strings!

Huge shoutout to @bespokebargains for the photos and report!
