The LoveShackFancy sample sale was one we were extremely excited for. That is, until the reviews started pouring in on Monday morning.
Setup: The room was lined with racks of merchandise. There were 700+ pieces at the sale, mostly from the summer resort collection. The room looked great before the people came in, but here is where s*** went down. The air conditioning was broken, there were a ton of people in line. And so the sample sale quickly turned into the sample sauna, and let me tell you, the shoppers did not enjoy that. To top it all off, employees were letting in personal friends ahead of everyone else and were giving them stuff stowed away before the sale the public can get to it.
Pricing and Merchandise: The items were 70%-75% off retail, but for the quality were still pricey. Most items were in the $100-$199 range, with come accessories in the $25-$35 range. Lots of items for kids as well. We found the pricing sheet from the last sample sale, and our suspicions were correct. Prices for certain items grew by as much as $50. For that quality, the inflation is a joke (and it’s not a funny one.)
We truly hope that the brand could somehow save this sale, get the AC fixed, stop showing blatant favoritism and offer customers a pleasant (or at least relatively pleasant) shopping experience, because the LoveShackFancy clothes are super cute. Due to the complaints and pricing, we had to drop the rating to a 5.5/10.
