Pumps, Blazers & Other British Finds at the L.K. Bennett Sample Sale

L K Bennett Sample Sale review on ShopDrop

I was excited to check out the LK Bennett sample sale, because the brand is one of Kate Middleton’s favorites and a staple of the British wardrobe. The sale took place in the company office on Madison Ave, the setup nice and relaxed, no lines and (sadly for us) no pictures. Don’t worry though, I took a good look and am including a verbal report below – hope this helps. And I found a picture with some of the items I saw at the sample sale, and priced it accordingly. Enjoy!

Sizes: sizes run small – if you’re usually a size 2, you might want to start with the size 6 rack.
Clothes are divided by size: depending on your size, the merchandise varies. Here is what we saw:

Flats $30, heels $50, boots $80
Dresses $80
Jackets $40
Special jackets, dresses and shoes for as little as $15 (but very old collections)
Belts $5

To check out the sale, you have till EOD Saturday.

Update Your Work Wardrobe at the Theory Sample Sale for Women

Theory Sample Sale

By Cristina Martin 

The Theory sample sale had some really great pieces. Theory is well known for their stylish power suits and minimalist approach to professional attire. You can find both professional and casual pieces at the Theory sample sale. Their accessories were on point as well! You can choose from a wide variety of handbags, scarves, hats, and belts. However, their shoe selection was rather limited.

Now prices… We rated the Theory sample sale a 7 out of 10, because all although their selection was excellent, the prices were still a little high. You had to sift through the clothing to get a really good deal. For example, these suede pants were originally $1,195 and were on sale for $99. Now that’s a gem! On the other hand, a leather jacket was $445 and on sale for $399. We are keeping our fingers crossed for further price reductions!

Best Sample Sale Ever at Sachin & Babi

We already knew that Sachin & Babi was one of the best sample sales in NY given the value/price ratio, that’s why we were absolutely delighted to partner with the brand on an early access offering. Over 100 ShopDroppers came to check out the sample sale the night before opening. Most people left with large bags in their hands and smiles on their faces. Samples were over 90% off, with $900 items selling for as low as $75. And stock was over 80% off as well. Considering the extraordinary quality of items, it was hard to leave clothes on hangers.

Comfort Clothes to Die for at the Lemon Collections Sample Sale in NY

We loved this sale so much we gave it a 9.5 stars out of 10!

This sample sale offered a ton of fuzzy socks, scarves, slippers, leg warmers and leggings all for under $30. The staff was nice, the location clean. The items on sale  were so cozy, I just wanted to stay in the fuzz forever. Accessories were all over the tables and there were plenty of them – most at a 3 for $25 deal. There were 2 sweater and robe racks along with racks – some were cashmere – and they all were selling for $15. Pillows were $10, blankets $30 and there were 4 $1 bins at the end.

Take II for the Schutz Sample Sale

On a scale of 1 to 10, ShopDrop gives Schutz sample sale 6 stars.

A few weeks ago Clothingline hosted a sample sale for Schutz, which was frankly disappointing. There were only 4-5 pairs of shoes for every size.Therefore, we were hoping to see more of a selection at the next Schutz sample sale, which is currently taking place. The good news is there were more shoes, the bad news is that a lot of the shoes were from old collections, and we didn’t see any winter gear (boots or booties). The shoes were $30-$50 and included a variety of items per size form 5 to 11.

In addition to the Schutz brand, there were a number of other items on sale from previous sample sales: Alix bodysuits, Julie Brown NYC tops, bottoms and dresses, The Arrivals coats and Cashmere sweaters. If you’re in the fashion district, we recommend checking this one out.

5 Things To Know About Sample Sale Shopping in March

ShopDrop tips for sample sale shopping in NY

As sample sale season approaches, weekly # of sales can reach as many as 100 sample sales! That being said, you should be smart about the ones you hit up. Below we are collecting the best tips from us and our users to make sure you emerge from the season with the best finds possible!

1. Check and plan often

We update ShopDrop app with over 10 new sales every single day! There will be weeks between March & May with over 100 sales per week.
Make sure to mark the ones that look interesting to you and to work them into your busy schedule.

2. Try to weed the sales out before going

Not every sample sale is created equal. Some sample sales call themselves sample sales, when in truth most items barely reach 50% off retail. Or perhaps you have your own inner rules: don’t spend more than $50 on a top, etc… The good news is, you can find out about the kind of merchandise and prices the sale carries by following the right accounts and blogs. We definitely keep our Instagram Stories & blogs updates with reviews and previews. There are a number of accounts that do that as well. Make sure to review & request sales you are interested in so that you don’t end up wasting your time.

3. If you like the merchandise, but it seems expensive, go back on the last day of the sale

Many sample sales will drop prices or will be more willing to negotiate on the last day of the sale. We’ve encountered situations where prices were literally half off what they were on the first day at the end of the sale. If you saw items you liked but were willing to risk losing (because face it, someone might snag the goods before you) – go back on the last day! There is a good chance you’ll get a major discount.

4. Double check hours

We wish this wasn’t the case but sample sale hours are RANDOM! Some of them open only during the afternoon, and some tend to close early if they sold out of merchandise. Make sure to double check the day and hours before hitting up the sale. That will help with your time management!

5. Look out for extra deals

We negotiate with brands for specials on your behalf (i.e. early access, additional discounts, etc…) That way you can compound your savings. The partnerships we currently have going on are: early access to Sachin & Babi, an additional 15% off at Parker NY, additional 5% off at John Paul Ataker, early access to Clever Alice etc and more!

And a bonus tip from our followers:

Make sure you are dressed in a way that makes trying on clothes with no changing rooms and 1 mirror easy!

Shoe Heaven for Size 9 at the Jerome Dreyfuss Sample Sale

Jerome Dreyffus, the brand over which Hillary Swank obsesses, hosted a sample sale in SoHo this week. Although we only made it to the sale on the very last day, we still got a feel for the beautiful aura of the Jerome Dreyffus brand. Located in SoHo and occupying two store lots, the sample sale took place within the Jerome Dreyfuss boutique. The setup was original: an open rectangle with handbags of all sizes and shapes – these are true samples and they are 60%-80% off retail prices, which leaves them at $110-$400 at the sample sale. Along the rectangle on the floor were shoes, boots and sneakers – flats, heels and wedges. These were priced between $150 and $350  -and all of them were size 9. We’ll try to hit up the next sale before the last day so you could still reap the benefits! Prices and images below. Enjoy!
