Another Marchesa Sample Sale – Another Wild Scene

marchesa sample sale fall 2019

We covered the Marchesa sample sale this morning during VIP hours. The sample sale is hosted by Shelly & Renee and takes place in the Marchesa showroom on 38th st. There was a nice selection of dresses and gowns organized by color and then size.

Prices were all over the place (as with most Shelly & Renee sample sales). You could find Marchesa Notte dresses for as little as $295 or $395. The Marchesa gowns that were haute couture cost an arm and a leg – we found a gown we like for $2,200 and another one for $4,500.

Since a lot of people asked, we’re putting it out there – there were no bridal gowns at the sample sale. Like, not a single one. So if you are getting married any time soon, this is not where you go – this is where you send your bridesmaids.

All in all, the dresses were gorgeous. And if you like the Marchesa brand like the many women who were fighting each other at the sale to get ahold of a gown, then you should probably hit this sample sale up.

Fashion Marchesa Neem Khan Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review Shelly and Renee ShopDrop

Early Access at the Marchesa and Neem Khan Sample Sales

Marchesa Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The November VIP program kicked off with the Marchesa and Neem Khan sample sales. Through our VIP program, you pay one price for the entire month and unlock early access to numerous sample sales. It’s a sweet deal if we say so ourselves. The Marchesa sale opens to the public officially on Sunday. Hosted by Shelly&Rene, the sale was filled with dresses from both notte and couture collections. Racks were packed with dresses, so you have to scour through them to find what you’re looking for. Additionally, the dresses are bagged, so that’s an extra barrier to get through.

We noticed that prices were definitely higher at this sale. They’ve gone up from previous seasons. The addition of Neem Khan also adds some more options for you to choose from. The space is rather small, so VIP’ers were lucky to shop with ease. We are predicting madness on opening day. Definitely check out the sale if you have an upscale event coming up. A Marchesa dress will never disappoint. There’s still time to sign up for our VIP program here and keep an eye out for December. Happy shopping!

Inside the Marchesa Sample Sale

Marchesa sample sale review

Shelly and Renee are hosting the Marchesa sample sale once again and the lines are out the door. The legendary gowns are famous for the lace, tulle and embellished designs. They make the perfect bridesmaid and gala gowns. If you have a hot party coming up, that’s definitely a sale we recommend.

While prices started at $250, most items sold in the $2K-$3K range (still a significant departure from the retail prices that go as high as $14K per dress). If you have a wedding coming up, need to steal the night and have money to spend, definitely check this one out.

Head-Turning Dresses from Marchesa Sample Sale

MARCHESA sample sale at Shelly and Renee

Marchesa is one of the brands that produces evening gowns meant to steal the night. Lace, beading and exquisite designs produce dresses that are both romantic and flattering at the same time. At retail, gowns cost between $800 and $10,000. That is why we were excited when Shelly & Renee announced their own Marchesa sample sale where dresses (stock!! in all sizes) sold for up to 80% off. At the sale, Notte sold for $265 and Marchesa proper for up to $3K. There were also Parkas for $1K and real fur coats for a bit under $3K. And to top it off, additional reductions were announced today! So this is the opportunity to shop for fashionable items and spend nothing compared to the actual value.

You can still catch some awesome dresses for a few more days at the place mentioned below. We are thankful to Shelly & Renee for giving ShopDrop users early access on Sunday! And for letting us lead #SHOPDROPSEND – where we show our instagram followers 5 look on story, and they can shop from bed from all over the US! Enjoy the photos below!
