The Hermès Sample Sale- The Deets

By: Riva Neumann 

The long awaited Hermés Sample Sale has finally arrived and the Shopdrop team was READY. We were up and out at 5:30 am to make sure we were at this sale, arguably one of the most important ones of the year. 5:30 may be early for most of us (trust me), but when we got there we managed to be 60th on line! The first ones there got there at 11pm the night before and came from Massachusetts, now that’s DEDICATION. After waiting around 3 hours, we finally got into the mall around 8:30. We then waited until about 9:45 to be let into the actual room of the sale and from there, another 15 minutes until we finally entered the sale.

The second the doors opened, there was a mad dash to the women’s shoes for the coveted Oran Sandal. By the time the Shopdrop team got there, there were hardly any Orans left, the only ones being the super expensive exotic ones but don’t worry, there was plenty of other shoes available in all of our sizes!. Shoes included Thalassa sandals and Oasis Sandals, all at 50% off. They are restocking shoes but sadly no more Orans. They also have boots available but even at 50% off they are still super expensive.

They also had a large selection of silk scarves and home goods. Silk scarves ranged in price, the 45 cm twillies being less than $100 (OMG), and other sizes ranging from $200-$400. They also had limits on how many you can buy, 5 for the silk scarves and 2 for cashmere. The selection of ties was also pretty great and definitely one of the better deals. They had a large selection of towels, pillows, blankets and some canvas bags. They also had a lot of ready to wear for both men and women, menswear being 60% off and womenswear being 50%.

The lines for this sale are massive and will continue to be over the next few days, be prepared to spend the day at the mall waiting on line. Fortunately, the lines are very well managed by the nicest staff and security. Go at your own risk (I may or may not have spent more than my rent) and happy shopping!!

What To Expect From the Hermes Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Calling all the fashionistas in the New York Tri-State Area! If you haven’t heard, Hermes will be hosting a Sample Sale in two weeks! So you better start saving now or apologizing to your significant other regarding your next credit card bill.

We gathered past intel from some amazing sale ladies to give you a picture of what to expect at the sale. Last Fall, Hermes hosted a Sample Sale at the Americana in Long Island. One of our team members attended the sale and said Hermes began giving out tickets at midnight. Apparently the early bird gets Hermes Twill Scarves and Oran Sandals (I mean you can sleep when you’re dead – at least you will be wearing Hermes).

Past Hermes Sales have had shoes, including the coveted Oran and Thalassa Sandals. While we heard from HolyinMundane that there will be Ready to Wear, but there will be no enamel bracelets or silk scarves (we are literally praying to the sales gods that this isn’t true). Also, the sale does not usually feature bags and home. The question everybody is pondering, what are the discounts like? Generally in the past, shoes and accessories were 50% off and other items ranged from 50% to 70%. Another thing about the Hermes Sale, you do not receive the highly notable orange box. Rather, the merchandise is given to you in plastic/clear bags.

What we remembered most, was the strict no photo policy. At the entrance to the sale, the clerks taped your phone. If you lifted as much as the edge of the tape, there was void printed all over it and security swiftly escorted you out of the sale.

No one timed you, which was great while you were shopping, but sucked while you waited in line. They restocked the merchandise every day.

Will you be attending the sale? If so, then stop by and come say hi to us! ShopDrop will be providing coverage on the Hermes Sample Sale so make sure you check Instagram to get live updates!
