The Rent the Runway Sample Sale was Surprising

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Rent the Runway Sample Sale pleasantly surprised me. That’s not to say it was amazing, but I was shocked that it wasn’t completely terrible. I hate giving 260 my money, but I got a super cute Alexis shift dress, a Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini sweatshirt, and a Phillip Lim sweater.

This sale is filled with a lot of merchandise, and I saw racks in the basement which means that they will be restocking. They have every form of clothing imaginable– shirts, dresses, skirts, shorts, jeans, jackets, coats… You name it they’ve got it. Prices are as marked so it is hard to get a sense of the average percentage discount, but two of the things that I purchased were about 86% off of their retail prices. Unfortunately, because this is a Rent the Runway sale, a lot of the items are damaged or just noticeably worn. There was a really cute puffer jacket by The Kooples that I wanted to buy, but it was completely discolored. I also saw several sweaters with holes and stains in them and lots of shirts and dresses with pulls in them.

Overall I gave this sale a 5.5/10. Because while I was surprised by the discounts, it was a complete sh*t show. It was horribly disorganized, the dressing rooms were a wreck, and the line to get in was absurdly long.

Update Your Work Wardrobe at the Theory Sample Sale for Women

Theory Sample Sale

By Cristina Martin 

The Theory sample sale had some really great pieces. Theory is well known for their stylish power suits and minimalist approach to professional attire. You can find both professional and casual pieces at the Theory sample sale. Their accessories were on point as well! You can choose from a wide variety of handbags, scarves, hats, and belts. However, their shoe selection was rather limited.

Now prices… We rated the Theory sample sale a 7 out of 10, because all although their selection was excellent, the prices were still a little high. You had to sift through the clothing to get a really good deal. For example, these suede pants were originally $1,195 and were on sale for $99. Now that’s a gem! On the other hand, a leather jacket was $445 and on sale for $399. We are keeping our fingers crossed for further price reductions!

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 🤑
