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!

Stripes and Gingham Galore – The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale

By Ashley Randall

Today we had the opportunity to check out the combined Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale downtown at 151 Wooster Street. Dreamy and colorful patterned apparel lined all the racks, a majority of which were dresses, skirts and tops.

The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale felt as if you were transported from the rainy streets of New York to a bright and sunny day at the beach. The sale offered a lot of chic striped and gingham patterned merchandise. Caroline Constas offered both clothing from her collection as well as a section full of samples. The Caroline Constas samples were more limited and cheaper than the normal collection. Lemlem had a large collection of both maxi dresses, rompers and beach accessories but a limited selection of shoes.

We rated the Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. The clothing was incredibly cute and chic but offered limited variation, especially Lemlem who seemed to only have striped merchandise. The apparel offered by both Caroline Constas and Lemlem felt as if it were designed solely for the summer months. The merchandise was still priced quite high and there was an extremely long line for both the fitting room and register. Yet all the  merchandise made us feel as if we were relaxing in the Hamptons with a glass of rosé in hand. If you are in need of chic summer clothing 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.

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.

Cushnie et Ochs Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

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.
