Jacadi sample sale: is the line down the block worth it?

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: This sample sale had a line down the block, and was extremely crowded inside as well. The sale was organized for the most part- there were bins throughout labeled with both the size and age. There were tons of merchandise in stock, but defiantly more clothing than shoes. There was a line for the register that looped around half of the whole store – this sale is only worthwhile to attend if you have a few hours of free time.

Merchandise/ pricing: The pricing of this sample sale was as follows: shoes $30, dress $25, top $12, swim $10, baby bodysuit $8, and outwear $40. The prices of this sale were great and very discounted, and there tons of everything in stock. There were great dresses for all sizes and ages, both fancy and casual. I also saw adorable winter boys coats- in blue and grey shades. There was tons of merchandise in stock and it did not look like anything was going out anytime soon.

Rate: 5.5/10 great prices, line down the block- tons left

Bogner sample sale: Great winter coats for everyone!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: This sale had the women’s section in the front of the store, and the men’s was in the far back corner. This sale was very organized, and all of the coats were surprisingly categorized by item and hung extremely neat. It was so easy to find the color and type of coat you were looking for, which made this sale a great experience. There was a small table in the back that had some accessories in it, and there was a small shoe section (5-6 pairs left) as well.

Merchandise/pricing: My favorite aspect of this sale was that each of the items was individually marked on their tags- Yay, I didn’t have to hurt my neck after starring at the pricing board on the top wall this time around. This sale was 60% current season, and 70% off previous seasons. As far as the coats, most were original $1300 and were not around $700-$800. The new prices were not so great and remained pretty high. As far as quantity, there were tons of coats in stock. I only noticed one rack of pants/ shorts, however. Also, the men’s section was smaller than the women’s; they had tons of coats and pants still. This sale Is great if you are overdue for a winter coat, and if not- not necessary to attend.

Rate: 5.5/10 Eh prices, great merchandise, tons in stock.

ROLLER Rabbit is a ROLLER coaster of all things flannel!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The set up of this sample sale was not the most organized. There were boxes of accessories, bedding, and children clothing all scattered throughout the space. From the second you walk in, you may get a minor headache! Roller Rabbit had accessories on the left-hand side of the room, kids racks in the far back, and the rest of the clothing throughout. There were tons of racks, and it was quite chaotic to say the least. This sale is worthwhile if you are looking for flannel pajamas!

Merchandise/ set up: The pricing of the merchandise was as follows: HOME merchandise ranged from prices $3-$80, mens clothing ranged from $2-$40, kids from $5-$20, and women’s $2-$70. Prices were low, but the brand itself is not so expensive to begin with. There were tons of merchandise in stock, ranging from basic denim jeans to cute winter sweaters. However, there was only one men’s rack and about two children’s.

Rate: 6/10, low prices, lots of accessories, and only one men’s rack.

You will want to work out after going to Outdoor Voices!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Outdoor Voices sample sale was a hit; prices were low and quantity was high. The sale was composed of many different racks with athleasure: sports bras, tank tops, hoodies, leggings, jackets, swim, and more. It was rather confusing, however, that there were not separate men and women’s sections- both were spread out throughout the space (they had more women’s merchandise than the men’s).

Merchandise/pricing: The entire sale’s prices were very low, and ranged between prices $10-$50. There was a lot of merchandise, besides for the men’s clothing (especially swim). I noticed a lot of sports bras and leggings, all in multiple colors. The sale had gorgeous puffers and coats that would be great for the winter. I saw a few men’s sweats and collard shirts as well, in some grey shades.

Rate: 7/10, great prices that are high in quantity. Worth it to go!

Barely Impressive Billy Reid

This Billy Reid sample sale features lots of men’s clothing including button down shirts, pants, jackets, ties, and more. There is also a small women’s section that has dresses, skirts, and tops. Most of the items are along the $60–$100 price range. There’s lots of under $100 deals, but at a sample sale paying $79 for a sweatshirt or $99 for a skirt is not gonna happen (unless the designer is more high-end).

Men— if you’re in the market for new clothes for the workplace, it’s probably worth it to check this one out eventually. Wait until the last day for markdowns to get the best bang for your buck.

The best deals include ties for $29 and knits for $39. 

All items are neatly hung on hangers and separated by item type and size. The staff was too busy hanging out with each other to be helpful. (Sorry not sorry)

There is a buy more, save more deal with some of the pieces. 4 woven shirts cost $225 and purchases of $600+ get you 20% off.

I give this sale a 3/10 for unimpressive prices. The merchandise was solid but it didn’t really blow me away. There are a LOT of items at this one, so maybe try your luck to find a diamond in the rough.

Adam Selman, Simon Miller, Nili Lotan- ALL IN ONE!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: This sample sale was composed of THREE different brands- Adam Selman, Simon Miller, and Nili Lotan. The room’s set up was very neat organized, and was categorized by brand. There were a ton of different sections, where it was fairly easy to find the item you are looking for. All of the merchandise was hung aesthetically, and it was quite a pleasant shopping experience.

Merchandise/pricing: Nili Lotan’s merchandise still remained expensive- the prices ranged from $50-$495. Nili Lotan had the most merchandise out of all of the brands there. They had gorgeous pieces, from lux cashmere sweaters to leather jackets. Despite all of their beautiful options, I believe that it is considered still not affordable/ worth it to purchase a dress for $195 (at a sample sale)! Next up was Adam Selman- the prices were great and ranged from $25-$60. They had excellent prices, an abundance of work out clothing, sports-bras, and leggings– This brand reminded me exactly of Bandier’s sale last week. I believe that Adam Selman’s sale was the highlight of this sample sale out of all three brands! Lastly for Simon Miller- the prices ranged from $45-$295. (I thought it remained a bit pricey for shirts to still be $75.) The brand had a ton of t-shirts, bags, and tops, for all under $80; the t-shirts were the best deal for this brand.

Rate: 7/10 Lots of options, good amount of merchandise, great accessories, and very organized.

Zadig & Voltaire? More like Overpriced, Beware!

By: Eve Orbach

Parisian luxury brand Zadig & Voltaire’s sale features many cool pieces for both men and women, but the reductions aren’t that great for a sample sale. Since this one is being hosted by 260, as per usual you’re better off waiting for their last-day price markdowns. 

The t-shirts ($30), sweatshirts ($60), and denim ($60-$75) are the best deals of the sale. Leather jackets, blazers, shearling, and various other outerwear are priced from $150-$550. 

This one is all the way up at 2151 Broadway. Maybe it’s worth stopping by if you’re in the area but I would definitely not recommend trekking too far for this one. 

The sale is split into a women’s and men’s section. Clothes are neatly organized by item. There is a wide range of sizes for the pieces, which are all edgy and trendy.

The lines for checkout was really long when I was there, so proceed with caution.

I give this sale a 6/10. There’s a great accessories section and some cool options. This is a sale that requires a keen eye and a little bit of effort, but you might be able to walk away with a stand-out piece.

What: Zadig and Voltaire sale                                                                                                                                      Where: 2151 Broadway                                                                                                                                                When: December 17–December 22, 2019.

Come on Eileen… to the Eileen Fisher Sale!!!

By: Eve Orbach

The Eileen Fisher sale at 260 Wooster has crazy markdowns, lots of stock, and great pieces. Most items fall in the $20-$40 range. Jackets are the highest priced item and are just $70! Also available are women’s tops, sweaters, cardigans, pants, skirts, accessories, and more.

Attached below is the complete price list. My favorite steals are the sweaters for $40 (compared to the usual $200/$300+on the Eileen Fisher website) and the pants for $30 (versus the typical $200+ ones also being sold on the company’s website).

Everything is hung up neatly on hangers and organized by item. The sale is spacious and easy to shop in. One downside of the sale is that every single sweater I picked up, and trust me— I picked up a LOT— were all a size small. However, the sizing for the rest of the items is much more varied.

There is a wide range of styles and patterns for all of the items being sold. There are items for everyone. Merchandise came in both chic, understated styles as well as colorful, spunky ones. 

A solid winter accessories section is also a notable highlight— hats and scarves are going for $20.

Cash and credit cards accepted. All items sold as is, and all sales are final. 

I give this sale an 8/10 for having killer deals and lots of items. I really recommend hitting this one up at some point. It might be worth it to use some restraint though because 260 always ends up slashing prices even further towards the end of their sales.
