Shop pjs, robes, thongs, and swim among other clothing items. Everything was SUPER cheap. Retail prices start at $98, but at the Skin sample sale, the price range was $5 – $20. The only bummer was everything was in bins. Get ready to go on a scavenger hunt. If you have time to dig, the Skin sample sale is well worth a visit!

“I’m Melting, I’m Meelltttiinnngg” (The Wicked Witch) – The Reformation Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall

*read with British accent – makes more sense that way

Today we wondered downtown to 150 Greene Street to try and checkout the highly coveted Reformation Sample Sale, but sadly we were let down. We had to stand in the blazing, boiling, burning heat for hours. Clothing by Reformation is seen all over Instagram, featured by renowned bloggers such as Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat and Jacey Duprie of DamselinDior and those alike.

As we stood on Greene street dying a slow and very warm death, we pondered the question. Is the Reformation Sample Sale worth it? After consulting with shoppers leaving, philosophers thinking and our inner selves, we have arrived at the definitive conclusion – absolutely not. Yes, the clothing is very cute, extremely chic and seen all over social media. No one, not even our worst enemies should be forced to stand in boiling heat, unless they’re at the beach getting a nice tan with a margarita in hand. As you probably followed from our Instagram stories, Zara and Reformation make merchandise that are extremely similar in pattern, color and style. The best perk is that Zara is way cheaper.

We rated the Reformation Sample Sale a 3 out of 10. You would think based on the line that wrapped around the block, that they were giving away free puppies and ice cream. But no: no puppies, no ice cream. If you don’t have time to melt on the sidewalks of NYC, we recommend you go to Zara and check out their merchandise. Even better, sit on your couch, pour yourself a nice bloody glass of rosé and shop online!

If You Are In Need Of A Summer Dress, Look No Further! – Karen Millen Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to stop by the Karen Millen Sample Sale at 261 West 36th Street. If you are in need of a bright pop of color in your closet this summer, the Karen Millen Sample Sale has everything you need – for cheap!

The Karen Millen Sample Sale boats racks organized by size and filled with colorful dresses, tops and skirts. There was merchandise in nearly every shade of the rainbow including Gen Z Yellow to Millennial Pink. A majority of the merchandise still had their original tags from Bloomingdales on them! They also had a decent selection of blazers and outerwear. There was a small selection of shoes as well, a majority of them were heels.

We rated the Karen Millen Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. There was a large selection of merchandise in variety of colors but it was mostly formal workwear and evening. The prices were really good on the dresses, pants and tops but more expensive on outerwear and blazers. The shoes were definitely the best deal they offered, buying 1 pair for 30$ and 2 pairs for 50$! If you are in need for something bright in fun, we recommend you take a look!

The 375 Showroom had an amazing selection contemporary designer clothing, including Off-White, Palm Angels and Unravel. There was no price list but everything was 70% off the original retail price.

Perfect Beachwear at the Elan Sample Sale

Elan sample sale NY

Elan is one of those brands on 39th St that I first found out about when curating our sample sale feed. I wouldn’t have looked twice except that I really wanted to buy some perfect resort-wear to wear over bathing suits. The pictures looked great and the prices even better.

The sample sale did not disappoint. The staff was extremely sweet, the samples high quality (all true samples all size 4), and the prices were amazing – everything was either $25 or $35, payable in cash. I walked away with a beautiful resort pink dress that I already wore. Tons of compliments.

At retail, items cost around $89 and are available at Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and select boutiques. Photos of resort styles (each $35 at the sample sale) below.

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to look at the Gant Sample Sale down on 151 Wooster Street in Soho. The space was filled with a great selection of menswear, stocking classic blazers, button ups, t-shirts and shoes. While it also had a limited selection for women!

If you have yet to get a gift for father’s day, don’t fear! The Gant Sample Sale had great merchandise avaliable in a ton of sizes. The menswear sections had amazing blazers that were nearly 75%! As well as a variety of colors in staple button ups. While the women’s wear did have limited selectino, they had some great shorts, dresses and outerwear.

We rated the Gant Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. They had amazing merchandise for men but were lacking in the women’s department. There was also no line to get in or even for the dressing room! If you are looking for a great father’s day gift, look no further! The Gant Sample Sale has everything you need to treat any Dad! We recommend that you go and check it out.

Calling all Swimwear Lovers! – Mara Hoffman Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to stop by the Mara Hoffman Sample Sale downtown at 150 Greene Street. The racks were filled with an assortment of rainbow colored swimwear and whimsical summer dresses.

The Mara Hoffman Sample Sale did have a great selection of swimwear, including everything from floral bikinis to chic one pieces.There was a large selection of summer dresses, pants and rompers but had very limited sizing, only offering small and extra small options. Though these light linen dresses made us feel as if we were ready to tan in the sun while relaxing on a beach.

We rated the Mara Hoffman Sample Sale a 6.5 out of 10. The sale did have a large selection and assortment of fun and unique bathing suits, and they were honestly the best deal at the Mara Hoffman Sample Sale.While the clothing was cute it was extremely limited to the warmer seasons and high in price. There was a long line outside to wait on as well as inside for the dressing rooms. While on this cooler spring day, the bathing suits and variety of colorful dresses made us want to take a weekend trip down in the Caribbean.

We Are Excited To Host Our First Ever Sample Sale! Here Is Why You Should Be Too!

ShopDrop Sample Sales New York

Dear ShopDrop Users,

We are so excited to announce our first official hosted sample sale along with Sachin & Babi,Gracy Accad and Naz New York. In the year that we have been living, breathing and covering sample sales, we have been listening to your feedback, suggestions and frustrations and learned about the things that really piss you off.

Our next mission at ShopDrop is to create an amazing shopping experience where the prices are great, shoppers aren’t made to feel like criminals and don’t have to spend hours weltering in the heat or rain. A good price doesn’t have to equal a terrible experience.

Here is a summary of what people hate most about sample sales:

When discounts don’t go deeper than 60%
When you expect one set of prices, but see a totally different set at the sale (we all hate surprises like that)
When there is a ton of staff, yet no one is helpful
When you’re forced to check your bag and then are expected to tip on top of that
Waiting for hours in the boiling heat, pouring rain or freezing cold
Hoarders and re-sellers
Horrible hours and inconvenient locations
Mean staff

Here is what we are doing about it:

Transparency with regard to pricing, merchandise and traffic within the store (you will be told if there is a line!)
Pleasant environment where the staff is friendly, knowledgable and helpful (remember, a smile doesn’t cost extra!)
Everything is catered to the customer – that’s right, you, the ShopDrop Users always come first!

Getting to this point has taken us months of blood, sweat and tears. We are so grateful to our partners, believes and users for sticking with us all this time. We love you and cannot wait to see you this week! We can’t wait to embark on the next part of this amazing journey with you!

XoXo,

The ShopDrop Team
