Minimalist Summer Chic – Eileen Fisher Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to checkout the Eileen Fisher Sample Sale in the East Village. There were two separate sections, one having regular merchandise offered at a sale price and the other was all sample clothing and accessories.

The Eileen Fisher sample sale offered a minimalistic assortment of merchandise. The racks were lined with limited color such as taupe, military green, and auburn as well as scales of black and white. The Eileen Fisher Sample Sale offered extremely chic and simplistic clothing but had limited quantity.

We rated the Eileen Fisher Sample Sale a 6 out of 10. The clothing was minimalistic and chic but there was limited availability in all the samples, but they did have a separate rack of discounted item from their regular line.The staff was extremely nice and attentive to the customers. The merchandise was priced generally high for samples. The Eileen Fisher Sample Sale embodied minimalistic chic work clothing. If you are looking for a minimalistic base piece and have a larger budget, we recommend you take a look!

HAUS ALKIRE sample sale

haus alkire sample sale ny

Haus Alkire is a relatively new brand founded by husband and wife. Every single item of clothes screams quality, the materials are custom produced in Italy & Japan, and the clothing is manufactured in NYC. The brand has simple, flattering designs that would look chic on anyone.

Haus Alkire sample sale is on the pricier side. We gave the sample sale a 7 out of 10, because the items were gorgeous but the cheapest shirt was $95. If you are willing to spend money on quality clothes though, this is definitely one you should check out.

KAS NY sample sale – Inspired in India, Made in NY

KAS NY sample sale

Personally, I love going to sample sales where I could meet the designer and talk about the history of the brand. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to meet two of the designers. KAS Ny was founded by Kyra, an Indian born designer who grew up in NY. The brand is famous for hand-embroidered pieces and cover-ups and sells at Bloomingdales & Nordstrom for $89 (separates) and $120 (dresses).

The KAS sample sale is a treasure hunt. None of the items are marked, and everything is priced under $80. Dresses are mostly between $40 & $50, separates are mostly $20-$30. If you’re into bohemian chic and want a few fresh pieces for the Summer, definitely add this one to your shopping list.

A Workout Girl’s Paradise – The Bandier Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Bandier Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue Location. The racks are filled with a variety of merchandise and an assortment of different sizes. Including fun and colorful leggings, tops, bras and matching sets.

The Bandier Sample Sale was a dream to anyone women who loves fitness, as well as those who spend their days dressed in athleisure. The sale offered everything from high intensity workout pants to chic bomber jackets and everything in-between. The Bandier Sample Sale had an amazing selection of both performance and leisure sneakers, including brands such as Haus by Golden Goose, Athletic Propulsion Lab, Adidas and Nike.

We rated the Bandier Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. Although the Bandier Sample Sale did have a great selection of merchandise and sizes available, the prices were still quite high. There was no line to get inside but the environment was hectic. They did have a great selection of both clothing and shoes so we recommend you check it out!

Isabella Companies Sample Sale – Great European Brands at Not Such Great Prices

elisa cavaletti

Isabella company imports small luxury European brands into the US market: Elisa Cavaletti, Aaiko, Rino & Pelle. The company hosts a bi-annual sale in their showroom. We went to check it out and run an early access event.

Overall, we gave the sale a 4 out of 10, because although the merchandise was really nice and high quality, the brands didn’t have much recognition (at least in the states), and we were able to find retail prices that were the same as at the sample sale, so totally confused about the discount.

The sale opens to the public on Wed, May-29.

A Sneak Peak of the Cushnie et Ochs Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We stopped by the CeO midtown showroom to get a preview of the Cushnie et Ochs sample sale. The showroom was filled with elegant pieces including gowns, cocktail dresses and casual wear.

You can shop regular stock for 80% off retail. There were also two racks with samples for pre-set prices. What Cushnie did that was really unique was adding a “damaged” rack, where every item sold for $50. If you don’t mind a little alteration or sending a piece to the dry cleaners, you can score some really nice clothes. I also really appreciate that they were honest and separated the damaged clothing from the rest.

We rated the the Cushnie et Ochs sample sale a 8 out of 10. Although it was still a bit pricey, the discount was still significant. They had really beautiful samples and regular stock items. We recommend you check it out!

Veronica Beard Sample Sale Review

veronica beard sample sale

Veronica Beard is one of our favorite sample sales – hosted in her showroom with a 90%+ discount, it is one you definitely do not want to miss. The sample racks (prices starting at $30) were picked over by 1PM but there were still a few finds if you had the patience for it.

The collection rack was also great, a nice selection in a variety of sizes (2-10) starting at $50. We found gorgeous dresses that retailed for $395 and sold for $80 at the sale. If you’re in the area, definitely check it out.

Inside the Marchesa Sample Sale

Marchesa sample sale review

Shelly and Renee are hosting the Marchesa sample sale once again and the lines are out the door. The legendary gowns are famous for the lace, tulle and embellished designs. They make the perfect bridesmaid and gala gowns. If you have a hot party coming up, that’s definitely a sale we recommend.

While prices started at $250, most items sold in the $2K-$3K range (still a significant departure from the retail prices that go as high as $14K per dress). If you have a wedding coming up, need to steal the night and have money to spend, definitely check this one out.

Clothing for All Seasons at the Elizabeth and James Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Today we had the chance to check out the Elizabeth and James sample sale before it opened to the public. Held in the bustling Chelsea Market, the Elizabeth and James sample sale had a large selection of both samples and regular stock items. Samples were priced as marked and regular stock started at $39. The most expensive items were the regular stock fur coats. However, if you don’t mind a sample piece, you can score a fur coat for $199.

We rated the Elizabeth and James a 8 out of 10. The prices were fair and the selection was good. The space was also brilliantly organized and the dressing rooms were huge! I had the pleasure of meeting some of the lovely Chelsea Market staff. It is a breath of fresh air to encounter such friendly staff at a sample sale.

Check out the Olsen twins’ line, Elizabeth and James, sample sale as you’re passing through Chelsea Market this week. Details and pictures? “You got it, Dude!”
