Tibi Sample Sale – Super Organized

By: Riva Neumann 

The Tibi Sample Sale , held at the 150 Greene Street 260 location, is a good place to check out if you are in the neighborhood. The merchandise at this sale is great and very organized. The prices are pretty ok but still expensive, you’ll definitely be spending a pretty penny here. They have a lot statement pieces, my favorite being an amazing orange faux fur coat for $249. They also have a lot of size variety which was great.

The shoes were really great and a must have at this sale. Shoes range from $99-$149 and there are so many its actually crazy how much they have. These blue metallic mules for $125 were my favorite and are a statement shoe that everyone needs and that I didn’t even know I needed.

I gave this sale an 8/10, go check it out!

The Paul Smith Sample Sale has Very Limited Options for Women

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Paul Smith sample sale is pretty much just for men. The whole front half of the showroom is filled with men’s clothing and there are about three racks of women’s clothes in the back of the room along one wall. So girls, don’t get your hopes up going to this sale unless you can fit into men’s clothes or you’re buying for your boyfriend/husband.

For the guys, there are tons of sport coats and suit jackets, trousers and jeans, t-shirts and button-downs, and shoes. Prices are a bit high in my opinion, the discounts are mostly about 60%-70% off which is okay, but not amazing. As for the ladies, the best options are the trousers, and the worst are the tops. There were hardly any shirts and the ones that they did have were meh. There were a couple of nice work dresses but they were pricey!

Overall I rated this sale a 6/10. In my opinion, it is just not worth waiting on line for.

The Aquazzura Sample Sale is Ridiculously Over Overpriced

By: Jacqueline Munro

In classic 260 fashion, the Aquazzura sample sale prices are way too high. Prices start at $180 and range all the way up to $485. And while $180 doesn’t sound terrible, the majority of the shoes were between $220 and $275. In my opinion that is just absurd. This is a sample sale people!?? I mean, has that word completely lost its meaning?

Despite the disappointing prices though, the selection of merchandise was quite wonderful. I walked in and felt like I was suddenly swimming in a sea of Aquazzura boxes. Not only was there a nice array of styles, but there were also tons of sizes starting at 34 and going up to 41! I was very pleased with the selection of powder puff shoes. They were stocked with various heel heights and plenty of colors, but I felt like $230 for them was just too much! They also had lots of PVC shoes which are still super in.

Overall I rated this sale a 6.5/10. If you’re an Aquazzura fanatic who always pays full price, you might feel like it is worth it to go. But if you’re someone like me who loves the shoes but can’t afford to pay full price, don’t go because you won’t be able to afford the sample sale prices either!!!!

Chuckies Moving Sale – Kind of a Fraud

chuckles moving sale

The Chuckies ‘moving’ sale is what we like to call FALSE ADVERTISING. First of all, they hosted a ‘liquidation’ sale in July, which wasn’t liquidation since they are still very much in business. And now they advertise this moving sale with items up to 90% off.

We get to the sale and there are like two and a half items at 90% off retail, and everything else is barely 50% off. So I don’t even know if I believe that they are really moving. Hate lies. Yes there were quite a few brands, but the prices were nowhere near where prices should be at a sample sale.

Given the loss of trust, I’m giving this sale a 0 out of 10. Shame on you. SKIP.

This Might Be the Best Prive Sample Sale Yet

I generally have a lukewarm feeling about the Prive sample sales, which take place at Chelsea Market. Most of the time, the atmosphere is great, the place is well lit, the staff nice. The pricing is not the cheapest but it’s not horrible either, and brands are contemporary to high-end.

Imagine how excited I was today when I walked into the sale to find 2 racks of Versace hoodies and t-shirts. Granted, they were for men – but still. Versace?! Then there were beautiful Derek Lam coats – the puffers with the fur collars selling for $350. We loved them. And there were some Elizabeth and James coat selling for $59! That was my favorite item of the night.

Other brands with awesome selections were Vince (for tees, shirts  and shoes for women), Milly (kids, adults, dresses, skirts, sweaters and pants), Elizabeth and James (blazers, dresses and coats). All in all, this is a great sale for some staple sweaters. I’m giving it an 8 out of 10. Peace.

The Edie Parker sample sale had me super excited since these clutches and bags are so adorable and literally everyone I know has one. The sample sale has so many pieces and the prices are pretty good. Clutches range from $300-$500. They had initial ones in black and gold, some really cute pattered ones and some fun sayings (my personal favorite being “QUEEN”.

Other merchandise included napkins for $50, keychains for $35, coasters for $100, Iphone cases for $10 and boxes for $200-$300. Python bags were also available for $600. Overall, I gave this sale an 8/10. The merchandise is so good and the discounts are fire! The staff was also super nice and helpful!

Eberjey and La Ligne Sample Sale Literally the Same as the Last One

By: Riva Neumann 

The Eberjey and La Ligne Sample Sales looked very familiar when I walked into 260 sample sale. I then realized I had seen almost everything at the last sample sale they had. It seems like their sample sale inventory just takes a trip to the store for a week and then goes back into storage, just waiting for the next one. Prices are good, like $22 for a bra and $35 for a teddy but it really doesn’t seem worth the trip. Pajamas are $55 and robes are also.

La Ligne had a lot of sample racks ranging from $25-$100. Everything else was between 40%-70% off. They have a lot of merchandise but it’s more effort than its worth to actually go through it unless you know what you want.

I gave this sale a 6.5, prices are good, and they have a lot but it is not a sale I would go out of my way for.

The Kooples Sample Sale Discounts OK but Not Great

By: Riva Neumann 

The Kooples Sample Sale was really just an average 260 sample sale with discounts that were not as good. Though they had a good amount of sizes available in pretty much every style, I was disappointed by the discounts and how expensive everything was. $45 for a T-shirt is ridiculous and a dress that retails for $275 sold for $115 is good but could be better. I was also disappointed in the lack of accessories, if you are gonna say that you have them, then provide more than a small table of some bracelets!!

On a nicer note, the staff at this sale was so much nicer and way more helpful! Also the clothes were really good quality and condition, so you don’t have to worry about anything being damaged. Also the jackets are so nice and soft , perfect to transition from fall to winter. Also, the shoes were ok but not a lot of them.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7/10, it was ok, not amazing though.

FAMOUS PEARL SHOES AT THE NICHOLAS KIRKWOOD SAMPLE SALE

nicholas kirkwood sample sale
If you love the boots with pearl heels as much as we do, you’ll be delighted to hear that we found many of them at the Nicholas Kirkwood sample sale. They are called Casatis BTW.
The sale was set up in a boutique shop in Chelsea – staff was sweet (but exhausted), setup was beautiful. The organization of shoes was by size and then style. Current items sold for 75-85% off retail ranging between $120 and $450, while older stock was selling for $70 a pair (we did a double-take as well). There are plenty of $70 options in every size. Sizes range from 34 to 42. And the deeper one gets into the room the higher the sizes get as well.
All in all, if you’re into hot shoes, this sale is a must. We’re rating it 9.5 out of 10.

The Bonpoint Sample Sale is NOT on Point

By: Jacqueline Munro

After attending the Bonpoint sample sale today I left feeling amazed… Amazed by the fact that people are actually willing to pay that much money for baby clothes that will fit for about a month during which they will be covered in poop, pee, and barf! But hey, who doesn’t want to dress their infant in a multi-hundred dollar onesie………..

For such expensive baby/children’s clothes, I would like so see discounts better than 60% off. With that said though, there was an insane amount of inventory including a lot of cute options for boys and girls ranging from one month to 10 years old! There were cashmere leggings with matching sweaters, adorable little collared shirts, lined winter onesies, shearling vests, winter coats, and plenty of other items. You’re going to have to do some work sorting through everything though because all of the clothes are just “folded” in piles on the tables. Pretty much nothing is hung up, which makes sense given that the clothes are so small, but unfortunately it creates a colossal mess. Oh and don’t go if you need to ask someone’s opinion before purchasing because if they see you making a facetime call or taking photos you will be asked to leave. Trust me, they’ll actually do it. I know from experience.

Overall I rated this sale a 5/10. Unless you’ve got a fat wallet and a lot of cash to drop on baby clothes, sit this one out.
