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!

Sheer Bodysuits Rocking the La Perla Sample Sale

I had to do a double take the first time I stepped foot into the La Perla boutique on Madison Ave: a set of lingerie was on display for $12,000. While there must be people who are happy to throw away an arm and a leg for a pair of thongs, we were very relieved to shop at the sample sale last night, where most items were close to 90% off. The selection was enormous – lingerie in every size, pjs, RTW, shoes and all sorts of sexy accessories. For the basic pre-priced products, prices ranged from $11 to $75. RTW items were 85% off – the original price tags were colored over, so figuring out the price turned into a bit of a scavenger hunt. The sale opens to the public today. As always, photos and prices below. Enjoy!

$30 and $50 Boots at the Ivy Kirzhner Sample Sale

We were so pleasantly surprised at the Ivy Kirzhner sample sale, where all shoes were $30 and all boots $50. This is a brand that sells them for oner $600 typically. At the last sample sale, shoes were still in the $200 range. Here’s what you need to know: all the $30 $50 items are samples, which means they are in size 7. If you are that size – say hello to paradise. If you are a different size, then they have regular collection items that are still over 80% off. All prices and photos below. The sale just started so you have plenty to check out.

Bringing Sample Sales to New Yorkers – 1st WeWork Collab

WeWork sample sale

When we got started with ShopDrop, our dream was to bring the world of sample sales to a larger audience. Our research showed that only the very fashion conscious and fashion-connected members of society were privy to this secret club of individuals who somehow manage to snag $1,000 items for a fraction of the price. One of our dream initiatives was creating a traveling sample sale. The idea was simple – instead of asking people to drag through the cold to get to sample sales, we would bring the sample sales to them. This seemed to be especially relevant for winter months when sample sale season is considered to be in a lull.

After a number of conversations we reached out to WeWork with the idea. We were welcomed with open hands. The next few weeks were filled with cold calls to brands and former partners telling them about the initiative and getting merchandise for the event. Marketing and getting the word out was part three. All that being said, my heart fills with trepidation today, as it is our first run of this concept. Fingers crossed & off to work.

We will write a follow up with our thoughts once the sale is over. Stay tuned – and thank you for your outpouring of love and support!
