Pippa and Julie- GORGEOUS children’s dresses for occasions!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Pippa and Julie set up was organized and totally spacious- It was actually completely empty when I went! The sale had accessories right when you walk in, and the first two racks were all things Disney. Throughout the room were racks of gorgeous fancy dresses for girls to wear to weddings and special events. There were tons of options and multiple styles: this sale is worthwhile to go to if you are in need of a nice dress (there was nothing else besides for dresses).

Merchandise/ pricing: The pricing of this sale was as follows: dresses $20, legging sets $15, separates $10, and accessories up to $30. There were tons of dresses at this sale- I saw gorgeous high/low dresses, and very cute Disney three-piece sets. There was also only one small section for boys, due to the fact that this brand is mostly a girl’s line. In addition, the staff was very sweet. They were more than happy to show me all of the dresses and styles, and where I can find additional sizes. This sale was fantastic and the prices were unbeatable!!

Rate: 6/10– great dresses, one section for boys, worthwhile if you need a nice children’s dress !

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!

The Dreems sample sale is a dream!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The set up of this sample sale was quite interesting- while the whole space was on sale, the larger discounted items  were placed in the back of the room. In the back, there were racks that were labeled $30 rack, $90, and $200. I was genially surprised at certain items that I saw on the $30 rack! There were bags and jewelry in the front entrance, and some great men’s shoes in the back as well. The entire room was gorgeous, and smelled divine! Defiantly worth a trip.

Merchandise/pricing: The entire store was on sale, and the back of the room had some $30, $90, and $200 racks. While the store had gorgeous pieces, there was mostly only one of each item. Due to that unfortunate attribute, this sale is truly a hit or miss. Dreems had very cool pieces; I saw very cute patterned jeans, leather skirts, and tons of coats. Now onto accessories: there were a ton of men’s shoes and bags, women’s bags, wallets, and jewelry. The prices for the accessories ranged from $25-$150. There were very pretty gold necklaces and bracelets near the main entrance of the store. This sale was great, and worthwhile if you are nearby.

Rate: 7/10 Great prices, gorgeous merchandise, lots of accessories for both men and women.

Let’s pray it snows after buying all things cashmere at THE ARRIVALS sample sale!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Arrivals sample sale was extremely impressive. They had ample amounts of all things cashmere, and tons of The Arrivals coats to top it all off. The space was not crowded and very organized; The Arrivals coats were hung in the front entrance, and the cashmere was then throughout the room. In the center of the room, there were boxes filled with cashmere accessories: scarves, gloves, shawls, and more. It was very organized and easy to find exactly what you are looking for. The staff was helpful, and it was a fun shopping experience. This sale is worthwhile to attend.

Merchandise/ pricing: The pricing of this sale was excellent. For starters, The Arrivals merchandise ranged from $25-$500. Next, the cashmere pricing was as follows: gloves $30, scarves $40, reversible wraps $100, pajamas $30, robes $70, hoodies $60, zip-up sweatshirts $70, and sweatpants $50. It was fascinating to me, personally, that I saw some scarves were originally in the $400’s, and were now being sold for just $40! There was also tons in stock; I saw around 3-4 boxes for each item. There were warm and soft scarves, cute “XO” labeled gloves, and fuzzy slippers as well. This sale was mostly women, but there was one rack for the men. That rack’s pricing was as follows: pants $50, and sweaters $60.

Rate: 7.5/10 Amazing deals, unlimited merchandise, and a great experience. Only one men’s rack.

Dennis Basso-so Deals

This Dennis Basso sale features women’s winter wear at marked down prices. Discounts vary item by item. There are furs, evening gowns, dresses, scarves, hats, and more. 

Let me start off by saying that the merchandise is beyond amazing. The furs are so stunning and came in a wide variety of colors and styles. The gowns are luxe and equally gorgeous. The sizes of the gowns ranged from sizes 0–14! This sale was definitely a hard one to review because while I was there, it took every ounce of willpower I have to not to take everything home.

Furs and evening gowns are usually investment pieces, so high prices are to be expected. However, there are DEFINITELY better deals to be found. 

The space is huge and well organized, so shout out to Soiffer Haskin for such consistent performances. Besides having to give proof of ID at the entrance (extreme, much?) this sale was a breeze. The staff was sweet and helpful. Clothing is separated by item type and size.

If you’re a big fan of the brand and willing to splurge, this might be the sale for you. All sales are final. I give this sale a 3/10 because I was disappointed by the high high prices.

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. 

What: Billy Reid sample sale.                                                                                                                                             When: January 28–February 2, 2020.                                                                                                                                   Where: 151 Wooster Street

CALLING ALL MOTHERS! Introducing: 7AM enfant

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The 7am Enfant sample sale was the best set up I have ever witnessed. They took the liberty of building all of the merchandise (strollers, backpacks, diaper bags, carseat accessories, etc.) and placing it on each table, so that customers were able to visibly see what the item will look like when put together. The room was fairly large, and everything was organized and spaced out. The staff was very sweet and helpful, and were willing to deliver any information about a given product to the customers. The lefthand side of the room was dedicated to children’s accessories and clothing, and the other-side was the Hatch brand.

Merchandise/ pricing: The sales pricing went as follows: carrier covers $25-$80, car seat covers $18-$35, backpacks $25-$30, diaper bags $7-$45, accessories $5-$20, earmuffs $8-$22, and Hatch adult clothing ranged from $30-$100. As far as children’s accessories went, there was a lot of everything in stock. There were multiple racks for young girls, but only two racks for boys. The Hatch adult clothing brand only had a few racks on the righthand side of the room.

Rate: 9.5/10 Great set up of merchandise, amazing staff, endless options.

Going (sun)ham for the Sunham Sale

By: Eve Orbach

Home goods brand Sunham’s sale is definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for items to add extra sparkle to your home✨ Brands such as Vera Bradley, Ted Baker, Lacoste, and more are being featured. Prices range from $4–$40, so you are definitely bound to find some great deals. Most of the items fall under $20! Pillowcases, comforters, shams, blankets, pillows, robes, towels and more are featured. 

The best deals of the sale include throw blankets for $15, bath robes for $18, and large decorative throw pillows for $6. 

The one downside to the sale was that it is pretty disorganized and honestly kind of overwhelming to navigate. The sale kind of resembles a (slightly) less extreme version of what people’s homes in “Hoarders” look like. 

There’s a sweet staff, tons of merchandise, and killer deals (seriously, you might get killed by the mess). I give this sale a 7/10

What: Sunham sale.                                                                                                                                                               Where: 308 Fifth Avenue, 3rd Floor, Manhattan.                                                                                                            When: January 20–24, 2020
