Alice and Trixie Sample Sale Was HeartBreaking

To understand how devastating the Alice and Trixie sample sale was, you have to understand what the Alice & Trixie sample sale used to be like in the good old days. In the old days, the sale would take place in the brand showroom and all the items would be priced in the $5-$35 range. That included silk dresses, tops, pants and everything else.

This time around (and the last sale as well), the sample sale was still in the brand showroom, the merchandise was still great, but the pricing was awful. There was a chart with utterly confusing prices – different for white labels, black labels and different categories. Here’s the bottom line: tops were $59 or $69. Dresses were $69 or $79. Some November category was $49. Pants were $29 and so were shorts. True, Alice & Trixie has nice quality cute items, but the brand is not elite. This cannot compare to Sandro or DVF, both sales happening at the same time and selling tops for exactly the same prices.

While I was there, no one purchased anything, there were only a few shoppers. Whoever entered left empty-handed. Brands should know that sample sale shoppers are smart and savvy – if the prices aren’t worthwhile, people won’t buy. I almost hope the brand won’t do well at this sample sale so that the next one will go back to true sample sale pricing. Given all of this, we’re rating the sale a 4 out of 10. Skip it and go to a better sale instead where you’ll get the most bang for your buck.

Price Increase Alert at the Alex & Trixie and Love Sam Sample Sale

Alex and Trixie and Love Sam Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

This isn’t out first time at the Alex and Trixie and Love Sam sample sale. We noticed prices tripled, at least! We’re thinking they got smart and figured they can charge customers more. That’s a really shady thing to do to your loyal fan base.

If your a lover of this Aussie-based brand, it’s worth the price increase. There was a ton of beautiful clothing. Alex and Trixi is known for their gorgeous silk summer pieces. Alex and Trixie pieces are more casual, so It’s great for everyday use. Love Sam had rockin’ beachwear – just add beach wave hair! Love Sam also featured some denim and other casual pieces. They were priced lower than Alex and Trixie. You will probably score something better there.

Both brands had numerous sizes available, and the space wasn’t too crowded. Go and see for yourself. Happy shopping!

By Melissa Atkinson, The Reasonable Style

No need to plan out your sample sale shopping today when you can shop 2 brands at one sample sale. Alice & Trixie plus Love Sam equal sample sale heaven. With an entry way and an additional room filled with samples and stock items, you wouldn’t even know where to start. Alice & Trixie had more to offer at this sale offering both stock items ($39-$79) and vintage samples that started at $3 for the vintage pieces, yes $3. I was surprised myself when I seen the price tag. Although some of the items were defective, there were other items that were in great condition.You have to take your time and be patient in order to score something good on those racks.

Vintage Dress $5

Vintage Dress $10

Love Sam had more wear now pieces from stock ($25-$75). They even had 2 Shearling CoatsĀ available (I’m sure that they will be gone by the time you read this). The prices were not listed, it instructs you to see an associate so you know that the price was similar to retail.

Both brands offered a range of sizes, mostly small sizes. Also available were small accessories like scarves which were 3 for $15 and shoes in ALL sizes. The shoes were gently worn but they all were on sale for $30 from brands like TOPSHOP and Steve Madden to name a few.

This sale came right on time for the holiday season. You can get quite a few items for your loved ones without hurting your pocket. Want to check it out, head over to:
