Get Your Diesel Denim toDay: The Diesel Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Tried to make a three-word alliteration up there, but probably not as successful. What was actually successful was the Diesel sample sale hosted by 260 Sample Sale. Diesel, famous for their denim, brought items for men and women for you to shop. We noticed all merchandise was organized by color, which not only makes it appealing to the eye (#Aesthetic) but also easy to shop. Diesel has more of an edgy vibe. However, you can still shop for dresses, just expect more of a rocker look over romantic.

We rated the Diesel sample sale an 8 out of 10. Discounts were huge and there was an array of merchandise. You can also find lots of leather goods perfect for this transitional season. Accessories were also largely represented at the Diesel sample sale. Shoes, not so much. We were expecting a bit more.  Get out there and grab that leather jacket and pair it with the perfect jeans at the Diesel sample sale. Happy shopping!

Need Supply Co Sample Sale will have you digging through the racks

By: Riva Neumann 

The Need Supply Co sample sale was at best a haphazard mess of beautiful clothes just waiting to be purchased. I had to rummage through racks of basic clothes to find the real gems of this sale. While there some really good pieces, many were just basic pieces that many of us already have in our closets. I would recommend this sale to anyone that loves a good hunt for clothes.

Though the pieces and shoes that were available were definitely quality, I had issues with how much they cost. I find $100 for a pair of sneakers at a sample sale to be a bit much, as well as $40 for a shirt. There were pieces that were worth the price, however, it seemed to be a bit much for most items at the sale.

Overall, I gave this sale a 5.5/10. The steep prices and the messy layout of the sale had me looking for a way out, but if you spend the time going through the racks, you’ll definitely find something worth your while!

Sachin and Babi Spring 2019 Sample Sale is Just Awesome

sachin and babi sample sale spring 2019

We are clearly biased because we at ShopDrop run this Sachin & Babi sale, but given the merchandise and pricing, it’s really difficult to beat this one in terms of how amazing the sale is. There are samples that go for $40 for short skirts and tops, $75 for gowns and jackets.

Stock items are pricier but still a great deal for items that retail at $455 and up. At the sale, stock items range from $60 for earrings to $100 for separates, $200 for cocktail dresses and $300 for evening gowns.

On Instagram we did our first ever styling try-on videos for looks and received a ton of positive and encouraging feedback! Make sure you are following us on Instagram so you don’t miss more events.

Most of the sample sale is on the fancier side – if you’re looking for evening gowns or to outdo the bride at a friends wedding, make sure to check this one out!

Proenza Schouler Sample Sale will empty your wallet but fill your purse closet

The Proenza Schouler sample sale had me after one thing: bags, and it did not disappoint. The bags were all absolutely amazing and had me yearning for more money so I could purchase them all. Each of these bags were unique and definitely a statement piece that belongs in anyones’ closets. I would recommend this sale if you are in need of some statement pieces and accessories to mix in to your current wardrobe.

Though I was excited about the 50%-60% discounts, it came to my attention that in previous years, they’ve  discounted their bags a whopping 70% off retail. As amazing as the bags are, I found them to be a bit pricey for a sample sale. In addition to the gorgeous bags, they also had a good variety of shoes that were 70% off retail. While many of the shoes were beautiful, there were also many labeled ‘damaged’ so watch out for that. They were also very limited on shoe sizes, most of them being a 37 (US size 6) which is very restrictive. The clothing selection was also really good as they had some really fun pieces as well as some more edgy ones but I found the prices to be a bit steep.

Overall, I would give this sale a 7/10, I loved the variety of product that was available, however I found prices to be a bit expensive and the discounts to be a let down from previous years.

Icebreaker NZ Sample Sale with Plenty of Athletic Merchandise

Icebreaker NZ sample sale

The Icebreaker NZ sample sale is the first in NY. The brand used to have a number of stores in the US but not any more. The brand has a full range of hiking and sports clothes for any environment: winter or Summer.

At the sample sale things were between 50% and 80% off and ranged between $10 and $100 per item. The most expensive items were the coats at $100. Socks, hats and other accessories were around $10.

The sample sale featured items for both men and women and was organized well. Lots of basics as well that can be used as-is for hiking or under winter gear for skiing. The best deals were on the vests and jackets – only $50.

We gave this sale an 8 out of 10. If you’re a sporty type, check it out. If you’re not a sporty type, become one.

The Oscar de la Renta sample sale came to us this week at 260’s SoHo location. In terms of merchandise, it did not disappoint. The sale was a perfect shopping opportunity to stock up on work outfits, casual outfits, black tie, furs, shoes, and even something for the kiddies. And, calling all brides, you can score your very own Oscar de la Renta wedding gown for the big day.

We rated the Oscar de la Renta sample sale a 6 out of 10. While merchandise was on point, the prices were not. Now, we know Oscar de la Renta has a high price point, but damn, can they budge just a little?! Anyway, there were a ton of samples and regular stock. The sample sale consisted of mostly smaller sizes, so it was a bit limiting for the general public. Lastly, let’s talk about shoes.  Most of them were samples and were wrecked! What did these models do? Complete a triathlon in them?! I mean some shoes were straight up foot disease waiting to happen, and they had the nerve to charge $89 for all shoes! If you have a black tie event coming up head over to the Oscar de la Renta sample sale. You can snag a beautiful gown that will make you stand out at your next event. Happy shopping!

P.S. At check out mention that you found out about the sale through Shopdrop App. Help us get our name out there! xoxo!

Milly Sample Sale – Old Merchandise at Ridiculous Prices

milly sample sale

Clothingline hosted another one-day Milly sample sale. Was it great? Well that depends on what you care about at sample sales. The prices were extremely cheap. We struggled to find any item over $50 and there was a table of Manolo Blahniks, yes yes, Manolo Blahniks for $25.

That said, the styles were ancient. Museum-type ancient. If you don’t care about seasonality or are fine with wearing shoes and skirts that might pass for vintage, this sale was definitely one we strongly recommend. If you like Milly’s current season, this sale had nothing for you.

IRO Sample Sale – The Most Merchandise We’ve Ever Seen

IRO sample sale new york 2019

This was the first time IRO hosted an independent sample sale in New York and we were blown away. The space was huge and was filled with racks for both men and women. The stuff you’ll be the happiest with are the leather motto jackets (priced 60%-70% off retail), the flair dresses, and button down tops.

The sample sale is perfect for this time of the year. A large sweater selection offered heavy winter sweaters, along with light-weight knits. Lots and lots of jeans for the ladies of all different cuts and washes. There was definitely a good amount to choose from.

In terms of shoes, there was also a gamut: sandals, ankle boots, booties, flats and casual sneakers. The sale also sported branded clutches that would go perfectly with a flair dress, motto jacket and booties in this random March weather.

For men, the selection was still generous but smaller (duh – what did you expect!) – plenty of sweats, long-sleeve shirts and knits, but less pants.

Overall, this sale is definitely worth the trip and therefore, we’re offering it an 8 out of 10. If you go and are willing to shell out some cash, you will definitely find a super-cute outfit for the spring weather ahead. And we’re definitely keeping our fingers crossed for price reductions. Keep following us on Instagram stories and we will keep you posted!

Prabal Gurung Sample Sale Lowest Prices We Have Ever Seen

As I am writing this blog about Prabal Gurung and looking at the photos of the merchandise and pricing, I just want to pack up my bags and go right back there to get another few goodies. The Prabal Gurung sample sale was small as always and hosted in the brand showroom. I was expecting huge lines, but nothing of the sort. There were 4-5 women trying on clothes – otherwise, the place was empty.

The prices were the lowest as far as we could remember. There was a box of $10 items and the most expensive items were $150. At the last sale, they were $250. You can read our review of the last Prabal Gurung sample sale here. Shoes were $25 and $35 and were extremely cool. That being said, they were only selling sizes 39-42. For clothes, there was an extensive rack of items for $75, $100 and $150. And the safety pin items sold for $25.

Just to explain how crazy this sale is – items at retail don’t cost $500 or $600 but rather $1k and $3k – that made discounts over 95% off for some items. For that reason, we’re giving this sale an 8 out of 10 and are definitely putting it at the top of our list.

The Kiton Sample Sale is For Fancy Folks

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Kiton sample sale severely lacks in options for women, but for men, there is a huge selection of fancy clothing (mostly suits) waiting to be purchased. Ladies, I wouldn’t recommend going to this sale, but guys, if you love Kiton but hate the price tags, head on over!

Everything at this sale is 65% off retail. Shoes, accessories (such as hats, ties, cufflinks), suits, shirts, jeans, and outerwear are neatly organized throughout the space. All of the items are smartly separated by size and category which makes it easier to shop. The suits at this sample sale are gorgeous. The styles range from business chic to funky dad and I obsessed over most of them. Unfortunately, though the selection of shirts is kind of lame and some of the more intricate pieces with sensitive materials (such as suede) are damaged.

Ladies, there isn’t really much to say here. There is one long rack with different kinds of merchandise mixed throughout. A lot of the items are damaged or in poor condition which is really disappointing. There are some really cute pieces though, and everything 65% off retail. The most impressive items are outerwear but there were a couple of cute blouses.

Overall I am going to give this sale a 6/10. I think 65% off retail for Kiton is good, but not on par with typical sample sale deals. Even though it is a top-notch designer, they could do better. I mean look at the Roberto Cavalli sample sale prices! That’s what all sample sale discounts should be like. But I digress; the staff members at this sale were friendly and helpful, and for men, they had a nice range of options. I think if you’re a guy looking for a fancy new suit, you should go; otherwise, stay home.
