This Might Be the Best Prive Sample Sale Yet

I generally have a lukewarm feeling about the Prive sample sales, which take place at Chelsea Market. Most of the time, the atmosphere is great, the place is well lit, the staff nice. The pricing is not the cheapest but it’s not horrible either, and brands are contemporary to high-end.

Imagine how excited I was today when I walked into the sale to find 2 racks of Versace hoodies and t-shirts. Granted, they were for men – but still. Versace?! Then there were beautiful Derek Lam coats – the puffers with the fur collars selling for $350. We loved them. And there were some Elizabeth and James coat selling for $59! That was my favorite item of the night.

Other brands with awesome selections were Vince (for tees, shirts  and shoes for women), Milly (kids, adults, dresses, skirts, sweaters and pants), Elizabeth and James (blazers, dresses and coats). All in all, this is a great sale for some staple sweaters. I’m giving it an 8 out of 10. Peace.

Milly Sample Sale For the First Time Not at Clothingline and We Love It

Milly sample sale spring 2019

This is the first time that we can remember Milly hosting a sample sale through a venue that isn’t Clothingline. This time the sale took place at Chelsea Market. And that is a definite improvement.

Setup: The sale was extremely organized. Everything was on the correct rack. The prices were clearly marked and were on the rack. Two large public fitting rooms in the back.

Merchandise: the stuff was just nice. There were no items with damages, so no need to inspect every item off the rack. The dresses were cute. The merchandise was much more current than at some previous sales.  There were also tables with Schutz shoes (and 2 other brands), which were really cute and affordable – $59 average.

Pricing: Prices were marked on each rack individually, so there was no need to go guessing. The items were reasonable. $19 for cute t-shirts with slogans. Some separates for $49, others for $69. Lots of merchandise and plenty to choose from.

The sale wasn’t packed so one didn’t feel the pressure to hoard or so uncomfortable that one had to leave. Adding this to the ‘sample sales to hit up’ list. Nice sale 7.5/10.

Milly Sample Sale – Old Merchandise at Ridiculous Prices

milly sample sale

Clothingline hosted another one-day Milly sample sale. Was it great? Well that depends on what you care about at sample sales. The prices were extremely cheap. We struggled to find any item over $50 and there was a table of Manolo Blahniks, yes yes, Manolo Blahniks for $25.

That said, the styles were ancient. Museum-type ancient. If you don’t care about seasonality or are fine with wearing shoes and skirts that might pass for vintage, this sale was definitely one we strongly recommend. If you like Milly’s current season, this sale had nothing for you.

Sheer Disappointment at the Milly and Publicolor Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

So I have to say, Milly had good intentions. All proceeds of today’s one-day sample sale benefit Publicolor, a New York based non-profit studying the psychological effects of color to improve the education among youth. However, as they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

This sale was one day only, so either you made it or you didn’t. They charged a cover, $20 for priority and $10 for regular admission. After they charged you to grace them with your presence, the prices were astronomical. I understand they need to turn somewhat of a profit to donate, but come on! If you’re charging people to come in, you need to meet them half way with better prices.

If you’re in the market for $100 shorts and feeling charitable, then the sale is for you. If you’re living among the other half and experience #BrokeGirlProblems, then you didn’t miss much.  Happy shopping!

Prices Slashed on Last Day of Milly Sample Sale

A huge thank you to Sample Sale City for reviewing the sample sale for us! She gave the sale a 7 out 10 review. 8 out of 10 for pricing, 5 out of 10 for service, 10 out of 10 for line because there was no line. There was a large selection of merchandise but most of it was very old and could be dated a few seasons back. Photos and price lists from first and last day below. Enjoy!

Milly Sample Sale Review

By Melissa Atkinson, The Reasonable Style

Everyone must have heard great things about the Milly Sample Sale because after being opened for one day,  customers were still flooding the fitting rooms and perusing through the selection of garments that were available to shop. There are Women’s tops, skirts, pants, dresses, jumpsuits, outerwear & more from the Fall/ Winter collection to stock up on. All items are true samples with limited sizing and there are some irregular items mixed in so be sure to examine your items of interest thoroughly before purchasing. These items ranged from $25 to $149 for apparel, $75 to $105 for handbags and $75 to $195 on shoes from both Milly and Manolo Blanik.

However, that was the past, I have better news regarding prices for you all. For the last 2 days of the sale (today and tomorrow), the prices have been reduced!

Dresses are now $45

Separates are now $15 to $35

Bags are now $50 to $75

Here are some of the items that I spotted at the sale.

Don’t miss out on Milly’s current season product at discount prices. Hopefully some of these items are still available for you to get your hands on!
