Elie Tahari Sample Sale: More of a Retail Sale than Sample Sale

Elie Tahari Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We were a little thrown back at the Elie Tahari sample sale because the prices were quite high. There was a ton of merchandise. However, there was more stock than actual samples. Discounts were at about 65% off. You can find the same or better discounts at department stores.

Shoes were your best bet at $50. You can also look through a ton of coats and jackets. Men, You weren’t left out of this sale!  The Elie Tahari sample sale was very well set up and organized. That’s such a relief compared to how messy other sales can be. We are really hoping for further reductions. If you’re a huge fan of the brand then stop by and check it out for yourself. Happy shopping!

New Accessories Spotted at the White and Warren Sample Sale

White and Warren Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Cashmere is a perfect gift for this holiday season! If it wasn’t so expensive, you can knock everyone off your list. Let’s do just that at the White and Warren sample sale. Although a little strange that they had a sale just this past October, they added more accessories this time around.  Pick up some slippers, eye masks, and gloves among an array of clothing.

Everything was really well priced. The showroom was small and very crowded, and therefore not enough space to a large amount of merchandise. However, there were plenty of sizes to choose from. If you loved the October sale then hurry over to this sale ASAP. It only lasts two days! Happy shopping!

Cushine Et Ochs: Total Elegance Within Reach

By: Cristina Martin

Shopdrop VIP shoppers got a sneak peek at the Cushine Et Oches sample sale before it opens to the public on Thursday. Cushine is a brand that radiates modern elegance and style. Perfect for today’s New York woman. The showroom was filled with samples and regular stock. There were about 3 – 4 racks of samples, including a damaged rack for $75. Regular stock was 80% off, samples ranged from $75 to $250, and shoes and accessories were at 75% off.

Everything is so beautiful, but the prices are still pretty high. Although they are offering large discounts, retail prices points are so high that it carries over to the sale price. Activewear is probably the best deal. At 80% off you can work out in sexy Cushine activewear for cheap! This sale is a splurge sale no doubt. If you’re able to splurge, we totally recommend it. Happy shopping!

Another One Day Yigal Azrouel Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The Yigal Azrouel sample sale comes around a few times a year and showcases some of their dresses, tops, bottoms, jackets, older samples, and their famous scarves for sales. The sale is pretty uniform every time it comes around. Yigal Azrouel retails for over $300. Regular stock started at $99 and Cut25/YYigal line started at $25. Although prices were decent, the discount was large.

We rated the Yigal Azrouel sample sale a 7 out of 10. It wasn’t bad, but nothing stood out. Ever since they moved from their private office to a WeWork, the sale has been one day only in the WeWork common space. Prices have stayed the same for the most part. Yigal does have some beautiful pieces. I did notice some repeated pieces from previous sales. If you’re a huge fan of the brand this sale totally excites you. Other than that, pass by if you have the time. Happy shopping!

J Brand Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

If your wardrobe consists of denim on denim on denim, then the J Brand sample sale at 260 is the stop for you! The J Brand sale features racks on racks their denim pants for guys men and women. The jeans are conveniently divided by style of pant and then within the style by color. All RTW pants are $70, which is around a 70% discount off the usual selling point of $248. The sale also has J Brand samples which are stored in bins in the back of the sales floor. All sample pants are $40 and also organized by size.

The sale also has shoes and other pieces from designer Feit. All of the shoes were downstairs and there was a wide range of sizes for most of the shoes.

We rated this sale a five out of ten because while there was a good inventory, the discounts were not enough to achieve a high rank. While $70 jeans are not too outrageous, one could get J Brand jeans at closing Lord and Taylor on 5th ave for a better deal…

If you’re still in search of the perfect outfit for those holiday and New Year’s Eve parties, then make your way over to the Jil Sander, Brock Collection, Jonathan Simkhai, and Fleur du Mal sample sale at 260! The sale is FILLED with the perfect duds to turn your friends green with envy. The pieces were organized on racks by designer with tables of shoes in the back. Interestingly, the shoes were from See By Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, and Rochas. None of the brands were advertised by 260.

While Jil Sander was the headlining designer of this sale, the real gems were from Fleur du Mal and Jonathan Simkhai. The pieces by both brands were beautiful in both style and quality. We gave this sale a 7 out of 10 because of the beautiful inventory and the decent discounts. The rating could have been higher, but 260 was lining people out in the cold even though the sales floor was not full by any means.
