REMARKABLE deals at Ramy Brook and J Slides

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Ramy Brook and J Slides sample sale was a huge hit. In the front of the space, the sale had two racks filled with Snowman New York coats. Throughout the rest of the store, there were other brands such as Generation Love, Ramy Brook, and more. There were a few bag accessories (both fancy and casual) placed behind the counter, and there was also a fairly large shoe selection as well. This sale was exceptionally organized, and had a ton of inventory.

Merchandise/ pricing: The pricing of the sale was as follows: Snowman NY ranged from $160-$330, Ramy Brook $50-150, and Generation Love $20-$60. By the looks of it, there was a lot of merchandise in stock. I noticed an exceptional amount of jackets, from all different brands. There were cute hot pink, black, gray, faux leather, and other jackets and puffers. Snowman NY had a bunch of cute red and black vests also. Also, Generation Love had a bunch of great black, gray, pink, and white sweaters that were only $35 each. This sale was really great.

Rate: 9/10 Great prices, gorgeous stuff, and a great time

Dennis Basso-so Deals

This Dennis Basso sale features women’s winter wear at marked down prices. Discounts vary item by item. There are furs, evening gowns, dresses, scarves, hats, and more. 

Let me start off by saying that the merchandise is beyond amazing. The furs are so stunning and came in a wide variety of colors and styles. The gowns are luxe and equally gorgeous. The sizes of the gowns ranged from sizes 0–14! This sale was definitely a hard one to review because while I was there, it took every ounce of willpower I have to not to take everything home.

Furs and evening gowns are usually investment pieces, so high prices are to be expected. However, there are DEFINITELY better deals to be found. 

The space is huge and well organized, so shout out to Soiffer Haskin for such consistent performances. Besides having to give proof of ID at the entrance (extreme, much?) this sale was a breeze. The staff was sweet and helpful. Clothing is separated by item type and size.

If you’re a big fan of the brand and willing to splurge, this might be the sale for you. All sales are final. I give this sale a 3/10 because I was disappointed by the high high prices.

Barely Impressive Billy Reid

This Billy Reid sample sale features lots of men’s clothing including button down shirts, pants, jackets, ties, and more. There is also a small women’s section that has dresses, skirts, and tops. Most of the items are along the $60–$100 price range. There’s lots of under $100 deals, but at a sample sale paying $79 for a sweatshirt or $99 for a skirt is not gonna happen (unless the designer is more high-end).

Men— if you’re in the market for new clothes for the workplace, it’s probably worth it to check this one out eventually. Wait until the last day for markdowns to get the best bang for your buck.

The best deals include ties for $29 and knits for $39. 

All items are neatly hung on hangers and separated by item type and size. The staff was too busy hanging out with each other to be helpful. (Sorry not sorry)

There is a buy more, save more deal with some of the pieces. 4 woven shirts cost $225 and purchases of $600+ get you 20% off.

I give this sale a 3/10 for unimpressive prices. The merchandise was solid but it didn’t really blow me away. There are a LOT of items at this one, so maybe try your luck to find a diamond in the rough. 

What: Billy Reid sample sale.                                                                                                                                             When: January 28–February 2, 2020.                                                                                                                                   Where: 151 Wooster Street

Best Kids Sample Sale: Lesters Blowout Warehouse Sale

lesters warehouse sale 2020

By: Ahuva Levy

DROP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND RUN FOR YOUR LIFE… to the Lester’s sampe sale that is.

Listen, for me to drag you to Long Island, the sale must be worth it. The warehouse was huge and was organized by size, stocked to the max (with constant restocking), well staffed and prices were insanely cheap. I got my daughter plain black Uggs for $25 (retail for $120).

Everything was at least 80% off trending brands. The anti social social club kids tees were $6. I spent so much time in the kids section, I didn’t even get to dig through women’s as much as i would like to, but I will most definitely be going back considering that LLester’s will be restocking all week and additional reductions on the last day!

Happy Shopping… you can thank me later.

CALLING ALL MOTHERS! Introducing: 7AM enfant

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The 7am Enfant sample sale was the best set up I have ever witnessed. They took the liberty of building all of the merchandise (strollers, backpacks, diaper bags, carseat accessories, etc.) and placing it on each table, so that customers were able to visibly see what the item will look like when put together. The room was fairly large, and everything was organized and spaced out. The staff was very sweet and helpful, and were willing to deliver any information about a given product to the customers. The lefthand side of the room was dedicated to children’s accessories and clothing, and the other-side was the Hatch brand.

Merchandise/ pricing: The sales pricing went as follows: carrier covers $25-$80, car seat covers $18-$35, backpacks $25-$30, diaper bags $7-$45, accessories $5-$20, earmuffs $8-$22, and Hatch adult clothing ranged from $30-$100. As far as children’s accessories went, there was a lot of everything in stock. There were multiple racks for young girls, but only two racks for boys. The Hatch adult clothing brand only had a few racks on the righthand side of the room.

Rate: 9.5/10 Great set up of merchandise, amazing staff, endless options.

Gorgeous lingerie and more at Morgan Lane

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Morgan Lane sample sale was a true hit. The sale’s racks were categorized by item. There were a few racks of pajama sets, beach cover ups, bathing suits, shoes, and more. Everything was extremely organized which made it very easy to shop. There were great deals, and the staff was also super sweet.

Merchandise/ pricing: The sale’s prices were as follows: bikini sets and one-pieces $35, jackets $95, fancy tops $50, knits $50, leather pants $80, beach clothing $40-$80, knit clothing $75-$115, and shoes $25. Most of the clothing was high in stock, besides for the bathing suits and shoe selection. (I also thought it was very nice that they were selling the bikini top and bottom as a set.) I also thought that the accessories table was lacking “pizazz…” and it looked fairly messy. Besides for that, the sale was great. There were endless amounts of options, from gorgeous silk pajamas to a night out head-to-toe outfit. This sale is was a hit.

Rate: 9/10 Great clothing, shoes, pajamas, and accessories. Must attend.

Going (sun)ham for the Sunham Sale

By: Eve Orbach

Home goods brand Sunham’s sale is definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for items to add extra sparkle to your home✨ Brands such as Vera Bradley, Ted Baker, Lacoste, and more are being featured. Prices range from $4–$40, so you are definitely bound to find some great deals. Most of the items fall under $20! Pillowcases, comforters, shams, blankets, pillows, robes, towels and more are featured. 

The best deals of the sale include throw blankets for $15, bath robes for $18, and large decorative throw pillows for $6. 

The one downside to the sale was that it is pretty disorganized and honestly kind of overwhelming to navigate. The sale kind of resembles a (slightly) less extreme version of what people’s homes in “Hoarders” look like. 

There’s a sweet staff, tons of merchandise, and killer deals (seriously, you might get killed by the mess). I give this sale a 7/10

What: Sunham sale.                                                                                                                                                               Where: 308 Fifth Avenue, 3rd Floor, Manhattan.                                                                                                            When: January 20–24, 2020

The Rubin Singer Sale is Amazing!

By: Eve Orbach

The Rubin Singer sale has drop-dead gorgeous clothing at drop-dead prices! With discounts of up to 90% off original prices, it made me want to sing(er) at the top of my lungs! Prices are slashed, and then slashed some more! Included in the sale are many straight from the runway pieces. The brand as a whole is amazing—Rubin Singer himself used to design for Oscar de la Renta, so trust me when I say that Singer’s track record is quite impressive. 

The highlight are definitely the gowns (which really made me realize how lacking my life is in gown-wearing opportunities). There are also tops, skirts, leather items, pants, and jackets. The items being sold are very unique and have lots of beautiful detail. Styles range from minimalist chic to statement pieces. No matter what your style is, there is definitely something for you here. No joke — today there was both a mother finding a dress for her son’s wedding as well as someone looking for a “casual woodland goddess” vibe. 

All items are hung up neatly on hangers and divided by item type. There is a ton of stock, but act fast! The sooner you get here the sooner you can get your hands on the beautiful pieces. 

All sales are final. Crash and credit card are accepted.

The Anthom Sale was Plain 👎

Anthom is offering discounts of up to 80%, but unless if overpriced and underwhelming sales are your thing—skip this one. While the discounts originally seemed promising, a lot of the items are well over $150+. There are, however, a few good deals. This sale features clothes from Anthom, along with other brands that include dim sum, Yune Ho, and H of S. 

All types of women’s clothing is being sold, along with accessories such as headbands, jewelry, and shoes. Everything is displayed neatly on hangers and separated by brand. The space is very minimalist chic and everyone working the sale is helpful. 

The sizing definitely stays on the smaller size. Some of the items aren’t even sized at all (um, what?). 

Ladies, please spare yourself the trip to this one. High priced items + bad sizing= one bad sale. I give this a 3/10 for the exactly 3 items I found reasonably priced.
