The New York Multi-Brand Sample Sale is one for the Books

By: Jacqueline Munro

Simply put, the New York Multi-Brand Sale was great. There was a wide variety of products ranging from jewelry to coffee mugs to dresses, and there were price points to fit everyone’s budget. There was a $10 rack with some really cool pieces, and a rack with pieces starting as low as $20. But if you’re in the market for something more expensive and luxurious, there was stuff for you too! There were plenty of gorgeous pieces from designers like Dolce and Gabbana, Cushnie, and Chanel. Oh, and in my opinion, the best part was the pair of Jacquemus straw totes in the corner of the room. They had the large size and the mini one. EEP!

In addition to the great merchandise and fabulous pricing, the layout of the sale was really cool. I loved the way everything was organized, and the host was very sweet. She will make you feel very welcomed and she was very accommodating. Overall I gave this sale an 8/10. The products were very diverse and very well priced. What more could you ask for?!

Sparkling Sequins – The Parker Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the chance to stop by the Parker Sample Sale. While we were hoping to score some amazing sample pieces, there was an extremely limited selection. The pricing was nothing special either. If you need a sequined dress for your next Studio 54, Gatsby themed party or to just wear around the house, look no further. There is a decent selection of gowns as well. Just as a warning, the line to try stuff on is extremely long and will in fact test you patience.

Overall we rated the Parker Sample Sale an 5 out of 10. The selection was nothing crazy, we recommend you stop by if you are in the area. If not, you really shouldn’t lose sleep over this sale.

SEA Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had a preview of Sea NY Sample Sale before it opened to the public this morning. The space is organized by size and allows for shoppers to easily search through the racks. The racks boasted tons of beautiful chiffon maxi dresses, patterned skirt and ruffled tops. While the merchandise was stunning, the pricing was not up to standards. As well, the selection had some amazing pieces for fall and you know it is never to early to stock up (sweater szn people). If you aren’t familiar with the brand, the clothing at Sea NY boasts various earthy hues and lots of details.

Overall, we rated the sale an 8 out of 10. We are hoping for some additional discounts on the merchandise and then we will be talking!

I’d Recommend Skipping the Desigual Sample Sale

By: Jacqueline Munro

The pricing at the Desigual Sample Sale was fine (not good, not bad—fine) but the merchandise was terrible. The selection was plentiful with options for men, women, and children. But as far as aesthetics go, I was not too pleased.

There were lots of dresses and tops as well as a broad selection of colorful, embroidered jeans. But for the most part, those things weren’t worth purchasing due to their tacky patterns and embellishments. The only decent pieces at the sale were the jackets. There were some really cute denim options as well as some other more eccentric kinds. There were also a few cute purses for a decent price. For all the party girls out there, this could be an opportunity to replace your “going out bag” if you like colors and patterns. For the girls who wear all black all of the time—nothing for you. Overall I rated this sale a  6/10, I really did not enjoy it. Hopefully we’ll see some better merchandise and lower prices next time this sale comes into town.

Don’t Get Your Knickers in a Twist – The Bottega Veneta Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had a chance to preview the Bottega Veneta Sample Sale. Similar to last years sale, there were tons of knot bags, leather accessories, and clothes to chose from,

The Bottega Veneta Sample obviously had stellar pricing, runway dresses for $200 (deep breaths) and shoes ranging from $100 – $150 (take a sip of water/wine). While the pricing is clearly amazing, the merchandise was disappointing. A ton of the separates and jackets were spotted at the Summer 2018 sale. While you shouldn’t worry, there are tons of leather goodies available for purchase at + 80% off retail price. What about the knot clutch? (because we know everybody is gonna ask). There is a decent selection of the knot clutches available.  They ranged in price from $250 (mostly satin) to $750 (special collection/exotics). Accessories like belts, scarves, jewelry and sunglasses ranged from $50 to $200 dollars.

Overall we rated the sale a 7.5 out of 10. While we really had our hopes us for this sale, we left empty handed. The duplicate pieces from 2018 really didn’t sit well with us but the pricing was just too good. If you love the brand, we recommend you stop by. Beware there will be big lines throughout tomorrow and the next day, and phones are strictly not allowed.

Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet Sample Sale – Taste the Rainbow

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had an opportunity to preview the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale by Stacey Bendet on 260 Fifth Avenue. Spotted on the many racks of clothing were fresh floral prints, funky paisleys and cool color blocking. All the racks were organized by size then subdivided into different clothing categories. Clothing in nearly every color could be found. The sale featured lots of bright colored blazers, mini dresses and skirts. There were only three racks of sample pieces, which were picked through very quickly. While there was a huge variety of shoes, bags and sunglasses. If you have any need for a killer colored pantsuit (trick question – we all need one) or some quirky cocktail dresses, you should head over to check it out.

Overall we gave the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. While we were disappointed with the pricing on a lot of the merchandise, there were some steals to be found – especially on the leather goodies. We recommend you stop by and pear at all the rainbow colored merchandise!

Indoors at the Outdoor Voices Sample Sale

outdoor voices sample sale ny

For the athleisure brand Outdoor Voices, the sample sale was rockin’! It’s the first line we’ve seen at  260 sale since the beginning of the Summer. And we think that the reason for that is the phenomenally good prices. Most things are selling for $20, and leggings are going for $30. Compared to the $60-$80 price tags leggings had at other sample sales this year, we were happy.

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend the last few days of August, definitely check the Outdoor Voices sample sale out! Photos and prices below. Enjoy!

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Yigal Azrouel Sample Sale at 500 Seventh Avenue. Though the discounts on the merchandise were very steep was it worth making the commitment to buy?
