The (Not So) Clever Alice Sale

By: Eve Orbach

When one of the first things you hear upon entering a sale is “the golden rule is to NOT trust the sizing”, you know you’re not off to a great start. The Clever Alice pop up features multiple brands such as Stellah, PORTO, Vivienne Hu, Inizio, Raw Earth Wild Sky, and more at discounts of up to 80%. Featured items include sweaters, skirts, tops, dresses, jackets, and bags. The prices really varied by item and brand, but as a whole I would say the deals were simply 😐. 

The sale is organized by brand and clothing item. Every piece is hung up neatly on hangers. The staff is super helpful to the point where I literally didn’t have to carry any item for more than .2 seconds, when it would then kindly be whisked away to the fitting room. The fitting room does not have a mirror inside, so every time I tried something on I had to go out and do a little fashion show in front of every person in the store. (There were definitely a few not too approving looks given to me by some of the other customers, lol. To each their own, guys!)

There honestly is nothing too notable about this one. If you’re in the area it may be worth popping by because they have some good pieces. Overall though the issues with the sizing were pretty frustrating and the deals were by and large underwhelming. Hopefully once the sample sale season kicks back up again there will be bigger and better ones to come!

Prep For Fall at the Clever Alice Sample Sale

Clever Alice Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The Clever Alice sample sale wasn’t so clever with their store set up. As you approach the location, there is no clear indication that this is Clever Alice. Walk in the store, and you’ll see a bunch of random mannequins in a rather vacant space. Perhaps not the best first impression.

If you make it passed the front of the store, you will like what you see from the New York-based boutique. The Clever Alice sample sale featured an abundance of fall items. Everything was organized by style and price for effortless shopping. You can browse through flannels, jackets and knits at great prices. Knits and sweaters were at $20, and leather jackets were $150. Many of the items were from Minan Wong and Heartloom. Check out the Cleaver Alice sample sale to get a head start on your fall look. Happy shopping!
