ShopDrop is Now a Community – App Update

Next Version of the ShopDrop App

An in-depth explanation of the next version of the sample sale app: easy comments, profile pics, access to blog from the app & deep linking.

Hello Dear ShopDrop Users,

Estee here. I’d like to introduce you to our Chief Technical Officer (CTO), Bill. He is a tech genius and thanks to him we just released the new version of the ShopDrop app. My goal this morning is to tell you about the new features, explain how they are used and then to move on with life. If you are experiencing any difficulty with the app, please email me at estee@shopdrop.app – we will fix your problem ASAP. As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Until then, enjoy!

  1. Troubleshooting: If you updated your app and it keeps on crashing, try deleting it and downloading it again. That should reload all the data on the app in a visible manner.
  2. We added the SEARCH feature. That’s right, now you don’t have to scroll through the app endlessly to find your favorite sales: you can search for a specific one you like.
  3. Single file. Each sale has a tag now telling you when the sample sale will take place. Instead of separating by week, everything is organized in a single scroll.
  4. We are now a community: what that means is that you could see who else is going to the sale by seeing their icons pop up. So please upload your pics!
  5. Commenting is now easy – you can comment right by your icon – and tell everyone about the merchandise you are finding at the sale.
  6. Check in – now once you’re at a sale, you can actually check in – that way you become our trusted ambassador to report on the state of the merchandise at the sale
  7. Read our blog – now you’ll be able to read our blog straight from the site. It’s interesting, fun and easy.
  8. Deep linking: now we can link to the brand page in the app – so that you can look at full prices and styles before making a decision about the sample sale.
  9. Finally, in the profile section, you can now see which sales you RSVP’d to, so that you don’t have to scroll through all the sales from scratch to find the ones you love.

We are still far from done and are working on more features day by day, so if you have any ideas, definitely let me know!

Nanette Lepore Sample Sale Review

Nanette Lepore Sample Sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nyc

By Francine Szerer

I can still remember my first Nanette Lepore dress: I was about 15 years old and it was a hand-me-down from my oldest sister. Fine, it wasn’t a hand me down — she lent it to me and I never gave it back. I remember how beautifully it formed my figure, how the black and gold pattern intertwined to create the perfect oriental illusion. It was by far one of my most favorite possessions. Paired with my coveted rose gold Marc Jacobs pumps and I was ready to go. No matter what, in that dress, I always felt beautiful.

Fast forward to what feels like a whole lifetime and Nanette Lepore is still on my list of top designers. Although I no longer fit into that dress as well as I used to, the memory still remains. That is why I was beyond excited to venture into today’s sample sale.

Now, let’s talk about the Nanette Lepore Sample Sale!

Nanette Lepore Sample Sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nycI walked into 225 West 35th St and rode the elevator all the way to the top to then walk up an additional flight of stairs. The anticipation was brewing. As I entered the space, I saw an array of different textures fabrics and lace. The room was calm but I was beyond excited. This is why I absolutely love my job, shopping as work — who wouldn’t want to do this all day?!

Nanette Lepore Sample Sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nyc

Instantly the black with floral beading begged, “Pick me! Pick me!”

And therefore, obviously, I saved it for last. As I made my way, trying all of the dresses on, I knew I had found a special dress. All of the dresses I had picked out were absolutely gorgeous but, there was something about the floral beading that just drew me in. The most exciting part

It was on the special reduced rack.

Nanette Lepore Sample Sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nyc

As soon as it was on me, although a few sizes too big (yay for alterations!), I knew I had found the one. Retailing almost $700, I bought this beautiful work of art for only $75.

Make sure to check out the sale. Today, August 3, is the last day!

Inside the Cooper & Ella sample sale

cooper & ella sample sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nyc

By William Guzman

I’ve got both good news and bad news for you… and since I like to end things on high note I’ll start off with the bad: The COOPER & ELLA sample sale is no longer active, it’s been over for a few days, since the 28th to be exact. Now before you hit close on this tab just hear me out on the good news; using what I’ve learned from attending this last sample sale, we can make sure you are fully prepared and know exactly what to expect from COOPER & ELLA’s next sample sale that is bound to happen sooner or later.

Surprisingly enough, even the most seasoned of sample sale enthusiasts will tell you that having a solid game plan is key to getting the most out of any sample sale. (If there ever was a sample sale bible, that would definitely one of the ten commandments.)

Let’s start with the prices:

This sale boasted some of the best discounts I’ve ever witnessed from a sample sale! With retail prices dropping upwards of 90%! That’s both rare and nothing short of amazing.

cooper & ella sample sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nyc
BLACK DOUBLE LAYER DRESS: from $225 down to $20
cooper & ella sample sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nyc
ONE SHOULDER RUFFLE DRESS: from $198 down to $20
cooper & ella sample sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nyc
WHITE TIE NECK DRESS: from $250 down to $20

Inventory:

An important piece of info to be aware of when it comes to sample sales is the amount of inventory and size range. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they’re collection ran a wide gamut of sizes from XS to XL, specially considering I visited on the second to last day of them closing, a period when other sample sales are usually picked through to the bone – so it’s safe to say that their next sale will be just as bountiful.

cooper & ella sample sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nycPayment method:

COOPER & ELLA gave me the freedom to choose between paying in either cash or credit/debit which is always a blessing since I am personally not a fan of being restricted to one form of payment.

At this point you should be more than ready to walk into the next COOPER & ELLA sample sale and have a head start on everybody else in terms of what to look for and what to expect. Now all you need is a way to keep up with upcoming sample sales so that you don’t miss out when COOPER & ELLA opens up their next one! The best way to be aware of all upcoming sample sales is to download the ShopDrop app from the app store (for free!).

Now bookmark this blog and forward it to a shopping buddy or two 😉

Top 5 NYC Sample Sales to Discover this Week

By Lexi Zimmer

Similar to music, I love discovering new brands. With new online luxury brands coming out of the woodwork, it’s hard to keep up. It’s also not so desirable to pay top dollar for new a brand I’m not familiar with, especially without actually getting to touch the merchandise before purchasing.

Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale Review

Manolo Blahnik sample sale, sample sales new york, sample sales nyc

By Maura McNulty

I’ve been to the promised land; on a balmy Tuesday afternoon, I took the Q train up to 57th and attended the Manolo Blahnik sample sale at their 54th street store.

I was glad to see a modest line outside of the brick building; this event hasn’t been extensively advertised, so security was able to limit the maximum number of customers inside of the shop to 20. With a line of only 10 people, this event was remarkably small, and the line-wait was only 20 minutes long.Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale, sample sales new york, sample sales ny, sample sales nycThe store was gorgeously organized, with a long table extending one side of the front room into another room that held shelves of shoegasm-inducing heels and sandals. However, the other side of the room was discretely marked “not part of sale”, leading to a broken dream of owning a pair of hot pink stilettos with that signature-Manolo Swarovski buckle. Sigh.

The prices are amazing for Manolos, so if you have an afternoon to spare, I highly recommend checking it out*. Just be warned if you have a foot size of less than 10: they seemed to be running low.

5 Unexpected Trends for Fall 2017

sample sales new york, sample sales nyc, sample sales ny

By Francine Szerer

I know that no one is quite ready to hear this yet, but fall is definitely on it’s way. (Yes the high was only 75 yesterday, and it’s July)

Beautiful weather and Pumpkin Spice Lattes aren’t the only things to look forward to in the upcoming season. As the Summer heat slowly fades away we are hit with the windy chill of reality, a new beginning. For some it may be the start of a new school semester while for others it may just be trading those flirty mini skirts and summer threads for fall ensembles. As for me, it’s the excitement of a whole chapter of fashion and color palette.

sample sales new york, sample sales nyc, sample sales ny

Enter deep burgundy, hunter green and plum purple— all of my favorite colors arriving with my favorite season.

…. Well, enough about me and my fall expectations, let’s get down to the top unexpected trends for Fall ’17.

1. Red

sample sales new yorkEveryones’s favorite Taylor Swift song has finally resonated with fashion designers world wide 😉 Red seems to be the power color of Fall 2017. Not only did we see polished coats from Givenchy, monochromatic outfits at Tod’s and flashy Fendi boot—red is the soon to be seen street style of the fall.

2. Puff Coats and Vintage-Inspired Furs

sample sales new york

From Miu Miu to Marni, pastel puff coats appeared everywhere this season. In colors that will remind us of our favorite summer day, these coats are known to be poppin’ in high fashion street style. In contrast to these glamorous colorful puffs, fall of 2017 may also be going back to basics with unadorned vintage-inspired furs.

3. Retro Hatssample sales nycNot only is vintage fur making a comeback but get pumped for retro hats that will surly replace the millennial beanie. Everyone from Marc Jacobs to Maison Marginal to even Coach 1941 are bringing back brimmed and bucket hats that showcase vintage cloths like shearling and fur.

4. Victorian Collarssample salesThis fall you’ll be extremely warm as the Victorian collar takes center stage. High necks are all the rage. Brands like John Gilliano and Kenzo took the Victorian inspiration seriously with a more conservative look while my personal favorite, Valentino, took this look above and beyond in a stunning red (two trends in one look!) detailed dress.

5. Leisure Suitssample sales

Athleisure is out. It’s time to stop pretending to hit the gym and just embrace the comfy. Well, fashionably comfy of course. The latest in luxury convinience is the leisure suite, or as Elle Magazine likes to call it “The Tracksuit-Adjacent.” This is far from your current athleisure getups, with Chloé’s delish suede set to Ashish’s multicolor sequins. As the years go by comfortable clothing have become more acceptable, and so that you feel okay wearing sweats outside style them with a pair of stilettos— the Kardashians do it all the time!

Guys Can Shop at Sample Sales Too

men's sample sales

By William Guzman

It’s time we finally lay to rest a sample sale myth. As a guy in his early twenties who grew up in NYC, up until a couple of months ago, I never knew what samples were. In fact, I had never even heard of the term. With that in mind, I’ve got a hunch that most men are probably in the same boat I was in; living a life oblivious to the world’s wardrobe-goldmine a.k.a. sample sales.

When it comes to sample sales, there seems to be a misconception about them, a general consensus that they are gender exclusive to women. I can tell you first hand, that is definitely not the case. Yes, women’s clothing is a bit more prevalent in the sample sale world, but there are still a plethora of men’s brands who host sample sales, and plenty more who cater to both.sample saleJust this month alone there have been many sample sales hosted by men’s brands such as Stephen F., Cremieux, Michael Bastian, Dr. Denim, J. Crew, Theory, Eleventy, Asics, Drake’s X Ring Jacket, and more including upcoming ones like Bottega Veneta and J. Brand. That amount of sales is enough to satisfy even the most compulsive of shopaholics.

Whenever I visit a men’s sample sale, I’m always shocked to see that they are either completely void of shoppers, or just two or three who are in on the secret. I used to ask myself: “How can this place not be packed with eager customers taking advantage of all these savings?!” I soon realized that this phenomenon can probably be attributed to most men either not being aware of sample sales, or perhaps they identify sample sales as being solely for women.

theory sample saleIt’s a bit of a shame because sample sales really do make life a little easier. After discovering sample sales, my wardrobe selection has improved exponentially, and no longer do I have to save up for weeks just to purchase from my favorite luxury brands. Sometimes I wish I could have found out about them much sooner. Which is why i urge you to enlighten your boyfriend, your guy friends, your brothers, your dad, even your grandpa! Let’s put an end to this ridiculous myth that keeps so many in the dark. Men don’t deserve to pay full price for clothes when there are so much savings to be made… no one does. Guys can shop at sample sales too!
