Ban.do Sample Sale? More like Band.NO!

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Ban.do sample sale was one of the weirdest, worst experiences of my life. First of all, there was no real price list, all of the items were catagorized by the percantge discount. Now, I’m not dumb or anything,I’m just lazy. And I don’t want to have to do mental math while I’m shopping. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, the discounts weren’t even good! Most of the items ranged from 50%-60% off. I mean that is just disgraceful. Ban.do, we know that this is your first “warehouse” sale, but just some friendly advice here… sample sale pricing is usually around 80% off!

In addition to the crappy deals, the merchandise was just weird. There was hardly any clothing but they had plenty of pool floats and “travel planners”. I mean what is that about? There were ice trays and yoga mats, phone chargers and notebooks, but no shoes! It was also so crowded. The last sale that I went to at 260 5th Ave. that had a line was Rag and Bone. And it wasn’t even as long! I could not believe how packed it was. People were hoarding plastic cups and weird circular bags like it was there job.

Overall I gave this sale a 3/10. I’m so mad that I wasted my time going, and I all I can say is, I hope you don’t make the same mistake I did.

The IRO Sample Sale is FAB.

By: Jacqueline Munro

The IRO Sample Sale is not one you want to miss. It is being hosted by Eclipse NY, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite sample sale hosts. The employees are the nicest you’ll find, and their sales have been knocking my socks off lately.

At the IRO sale, there is a TON of merchandise perfect for the fall. They have so many cute dresses($110-$190), trendy jeans ($90), stylish coats and jackets ($220-$590), fabulous blouses ($85), and sweaters ($120) that will bring a tear to your eye. Additionally, the shoe section ($130-$290) is stocked with boots that are definitely made for walking. The men’s section is also awesome; they have a bunch of options ranging from outerwear to flannels, to chelsea boots. And the best part is that there is no shortage of product or sizes. This warehouse is filled with merchandise, and if you’re able to make it, you will without a doubt find something that you love.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 9.5/10. The discounts are up to 85% off which is exactly where they should be, and the selection is diverse which I think is so important. Whether you have a more eccentric wardrobe or just like to keep things plain and simple, you’ll be able to walk out of the sale with shopping bags on both arms. And lastly, I just want to thank the Eclipse staff for always being so kind and welcoming, you’re the best! Good luck shoppers, even though I know you won’t need it.

Oscar De La Renta Sale is a Madhouse

By: Riva Neumann 

The Oscar De La Renta Sample Sale is the place to go for some good discounted pieces, if you are ready to enter a madhouse for it. People were going crazy for the discounts, but everything was still so expensive.  They had some really nice furs, ranging from $2,000-$7,000 and production samples that ranged from a few hundred dollars to $2000. I wasn’t personally impressed by the ready to wear but they were pretty reasonably priced.

The shoes were pretty good and also discounted well, they had some shoes that ranged in price from around $400-$900 and sample shoes that were all $89. The bags were really nice as well like the embellished clutches for $325.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7/10, they have some great merch but I found it to be pricey and so crowded.

The Y-3 Sample Sale was Utterly Disappointing

By: Jacqueline Munro

Let me start by saying that if you go to the Y-3 sample sale and there is a line, you’re a fool if you wait on it. I’m so angry that I wasted my time standing in the blazing heat just so I could walk into the sale and walk out five minutes later. When you get inside it is going to seem like there might be a good selection of merchandise. This illusion is created by the fact that the entire floor is lined with tables of shoes. But don’t get your hopes up– quantity does NOT mean quality. The prices aren’t good either! The Y-3 high tops are $93, and the low tops are $73 which, if you ask me, is a rip off for old, outdated styles. But hey, at least for guys there are a LOT of crappy options.

For women, there are hardly any shoes, and it’s not like the apparel section is making up for that loss. There are about five styles of athletic shorts and tops, and maybe two different kinds of jackets. I wish I had more to write for you girls but there is literally nothing else to say.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 4/10, which is generous. The only reason I’m giving it above a 0 is that I went on the second day. I can only pray that what I saw was a result of greedy buyers purchasing all of the good merchandise on the first day. Do not go to this sale, shoppers. Avoid it at all costs!

Robert Clergerie Sample Sale Doesn’t Disappoint

By: Riva Neumann

The Robert Clergerie Sample Sale was a sale I would recommend for some great shoes at a great price. Shoes are $99 and boots are $149 as well as a table of slides and sandals for $55. Everything was organized by size which was great, the tables were all full of so many good quality shoes and boots that were absolutely amazing. My favorite pair was a pair of gold high heeled thigh-high boots that were almost as tall as me! and for only $149 that is such a great deal.

The only thing that I didn’t like about this sale was that they didn’t have any men’s shoes, but the women’s shoes do not disappoint! There is something for everyone here and you are crazy if you don’t walk out with something!

I gave this sale an 8.5/10, these shoes are so great and this sale is one you should not miss!

The Ba&sh Sample Sale Left me with Mixed Emotions

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Ba&sh sample sale was unbelievably hectic, which is no surprise given that it is taking place at 260 sample sale. I’m honestly having a hard time deciding whether or not I loved this sale, here’s why:

For starters, did I mention that I hate 260? For one of their first sample sales I was hoping that  Ba&sh would choose a KILLER host like, I don’t know, us maybe?  But seriously, we all know that 260 prices suck which is such a drag because they had amazing merchandise at this sale. There were so many cute dresses, sweaters, coats, and skirts. The skirts and dresses varied in length and style, and the outerwear ranged from shearling to denim. There were also some super stylish wide leg corduroys, but they were literally designed for women with legs like flag poles. Aside from the clothing there was a small selection of shoes and an even smaller selection of accessories.

So how am I supposed to determine whether or not I loved this sale? I shouldn’t be okay with settling for mediocre prices just because the merchandise rocks. But hey, I guess that’s the name of the 260 game. I decided to give this sale a 7/10 because I did walk away with some great (pricey) finds. But if you’re hoping to walk away feeling victorious I’d get over there quickly because the first day was PACKED! Good luck shoppers. Stay safe out there it’s a vicious crowd.
