Milly Sample Sale Review

By Melissa Atkinson, The Reasonable Style

Everyone must have heard great things about the Milly Sample Sale because after being opened for one day,  customers were still flooding the fitting rooms and perusing through the selection of garments that were available to shop. There are Women’s tops, skirts, pants, dresses, jumpsuits, outerwear & more from the Fall/ Winter collection to stock up on. All items are true samples with limited sizing and there are some irregular items mixed in so be sure to examine your items of interest thoroughly before purchasing. These items ranged from $25 to $149 for apparel, $75 to $105 for handbags and $75 to $195 on shoes from both Milly and Manolo Blanik.

However, that was the past, I have better news regarding prices for you all. For the last 2 days of the sale (today and tomorrow), the prices have been reduced!

Dresses are now $45

Separates are now $15 to $35

Bags are now $50 to $75

Here are some of the items that I spotted at the sale.

Don’t miss out on Milly’s current season product at discount prices. Hopefully some of these items are still available for you to get your hands on!

Reiss London Sample Sale Review

Reiss London sample sale review NY

It’s a Monday in October, which means it is prime time to check out the Reiss London sample sale taking place over on 260 Fifth Ave. The place is crowded but not overcrowded, which is good, because standing outside in the rain would have been absolutely brutal. The shelves are lined 2/3 with women’s items, and 1/3 with mens. There is a rack of jumpsuits, three racks of jackets and coats, two of dresses, two of skirts and two of tops. Sizes range from small to large.

Original price tags are on the clothes, so you know exactly what your discount is when heading to check out. A number of pieces that stood out in my mind: a white and black long jacket in Kate Middleton style (originally $540, here $275), a greyish-turquiose dress that was $420 and is now $120. There were also a few bags and belts on the side. Overall, the sale was great and I definitely recommend you check it out. As always, pricing and images below. Enjoy!

Diesel Sample Sale Review

 

Back at 260 Fifth Ave for another sample sale…. it’s a good one! Diesel is a brand most know for their denim and cool graphic tees and more. With stores all over the states, this is a company that will give you good quality but at a price. This is where the sample sale comes in! Usually, their clothes range from anywhere in the $50s-$250s so for most they might not be the most practical brand but the sample sale does alleviate most of the price points

 

As I browsed through the T-shirts and pants , they had a great selection of menswear. This includes graphic tees, plain tees and regular denim: a staple in anyone’s closet. They also had items like Winter Jackets, Shoes and underwear, all for an arguably great price point. I’ll post the prices below so you can get a feel of the range:

As you can see, most things are pretty reasonable and doable, if you want to take the plunge that’d be up to you. I wasn’t much of a diesel fan before I hit the sample sale up but there are a lot of nice things they’ve had on display. I looked in both the women’s and men’s sections of the sale and was pleasantly surprised with my findings in both.

 

I would say go check it out before it closes! Sunday would be the last day to see the full selection of stuff they have to sell. 260 Fifth Ave is a popular spot for a lot of sample sales so they change frequently. Make sure to get ahead of the curve and make sure you sign up with their emailing list , even if you can’t make it to the Diesel sale. It’s always nice to know when a sample sale is, more for less 🤑

Pratesi Sample Sale Review

Pratesi is an Italian luxury linen retailer, with sets selling for upwards of $1,000. Their sample sale, taking place at 317 W 33rd St, is selling old stock– including sheet sets of all sizes, shams, towels, and more– at discounted prices

A disclaimer right off the bat: given the steep prices the pieces retail for, even after they’re discounted they still number in the hundreds of dollar for sets. While some things, such as small mats and hand towels, run cheaper at around $30, expect to find most products selling for at least $390. While that’s a little steep for me, personally, it’s definitely still better than $1,000– so if you’ve got a craving for luxury linens, be sure to check it out.

The sale has a very short run, and ends today; the showroom is enormous, so there’s still plenty of stock to browse through.

When: Today, 9 am to 5 pm

Sleepy Jones Sample Sale

 

 

 

 

Sleepy Jones is a luxury Pajama brand based in NYC. These offer pajamas for Men, Women and children so finding something for everyone in your family wouldn’t be a problem! The sample sale is location on 260 Fifth Ave, which is known as the Flatiron District. Once inside, I was greeted and a employee pointed me to the area where the clothes were sold. I don’t really wear pajamas , I usually just wear sweats and a hoodie but their selection was fantastic. They had an abundance of different pajama styles, great for yourself or anyone else you are looking for. Since I do wear sweats and shorts to bed most of the time, I was surprised to see a good amount stacked up in both the men’s and women’s sections. $20 dollars for the pants and sweats are a really good deal, especially since the brands retail can range from $150-350 dollars. Maybe I’ve decidedly become a pajama person?

 

 

The prices between the sections range from $10 – $70 dollars which is a bargain considering pajamas (depending on the store) usually start at $25-$35 dollars. I didn’t pick up anything yet but I do plan on going back and checking out the shorts and pants they had. I would say give it a try and go into their sale, literally nothing to loose.

Does the Sample Sale Ever Really End?

It happens sometimes, there’s a sample sale that you really want to go to, but for whatever reason you’re just too busy and just can’t make it. However, there’s still a little hope that you can still snag a deal on that designer clothing.

On my way to a different sample sale in SoHo, I wasn’t paying attention and walked into what I thought was the sample sale I was planning on going to, but boy was I wrong. I ended up at what I like to call the 260 Sample Sale warehouse of past sales. There, they had the leftovers from various of their most recent sample sales, with a pretty full size run, at the price point the sample sales usually get discounted to on the last day, and what I found to be the best thing was that I was alone. This specific location that they have doesn’t get any mention on their social media nor is it even listen on their website, but it is there and a true hidden gem for those who know about it.

When I went they had pieces from Bonobos, Scotch & Soda, Brian Atwood, Ben Sherman, Maiyet, Velvet, Peuterey, Barbara Bui, Elle Sasson, Nest Candles, along with many other brands. So whether you’re a man or woman into fashion, or you’re into the home goods and accessories side of sample sales, this location is perfect for you.
