Wait, Don’t Run to the Manolo Blahnik Sale

Manolo Blahnik Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Who doesn’t love Manolos this time of year? The Manolo Blahnik sale has a significant amount of shoes discounted. However, prices are only 40% off at the moment. Our sources say Manolo Blahnik will be upping the discount to 60% off soon. We will keep you updated.

As mentioned before, the Manolo Blahnik sale has a great selection of shoes. Currently, there are still many sizes available. However, the longer you wait the less sizes they have. You have to pick your poison. Would you rather pay more and get the style you love, or pay less and have to choose from what’s left. Either way, you are getting a pretty good discount on shoes that normally begin at $500. The sale is held at their cozy retail store on the west side. The staff is very attentive and will help you find the perfect pair. Happy Shopping!

UPDATE 8/6/18
We are about a month into the extended Manolo sale. We are dissapointed to report only some shoes are marked down to 80%. Most shoes are now marked down 60%. Right now it’s mostly limited to summer shoes – sandals and open-toed heels. However there are sill a ton of sizes left! Updated pictures are included below.

Take Care of Yourself with the Korres Skincare Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Skincare is something that is often overlooked, but vastly important. Take care of yourself at the Korres sample sale. Find all your skincare needs here. Korres products are usually pricey, but at the Korres sample sale, you’ll find products for up to 60% off. However, don’t be fooled! We found shower gel for cheaper on other sites. Your best bet is to do some research before you go. Look up your must-haves to see if you’re better off going somewhere else.

The space is quite small, which leaves little room for inventory. We were told that certain items may sell quickly. (Restocking? We didn’t hear anything.)  The staff is very friendly and attentive. They also have a few samples you can try on! If you’re in the neighborhood, it’s worth popping in this two day sale for 10 minutes. Happy shopping!

Update Your Work Wardrobe at the Theory Sample Sale for Women

Theory Sample Sale

By Cristina Martin 

The Theory sample sale had some really great pieces. Theory is well known for their stylish power suits and minimalist approach to professional attire. You can find both professional and casual pieces at the Theory sample sale. Their accessories were on point as well! You can choose from a wide variety of handbags, scarves, hats, and belts. However, their shoe selection was rather limited.

Now prices… We rated the Theory sample sale a 7 out of 10, because all although their selection was excellent, the prices were still a little high. You had to sift through the clothing to get a really good deal. For example, these suede pants were originally $1,195 and were on sale for $99. Now that’s a gem! On the other hand, a leather jacket was $445 and on sale for $399. We are keeping our fingers crossed for further price reductions!

Pratesi Sample Sale Review

Pratesi is an Italian luxury linen retailer, with sets selling for upwards of $1,000. Their sample sale, taking place at 317 W 33rd St, is selling old stock– including sheet sets of all sizes, shams, towels, and more– at discounted prices

A disclaimer right off the bat: given the steep prices the pieces retail for, even after they’re discounted they still number in the hundreds of dollar for sets. While some things, such as small mats and hand towels, run cheaper at around $30, expect to find most products selling for at least $390. While that’s a little steep for me, personally, it’s definitely still better than $1,000– so if you’ve got a craving for luxury linens, be sure to check it out.

The sale has a very short run, and ends today; the showroom is enormous, so there’s still plenty of stock to browse through.

Stay Classy: Morgane Le Fay Sample Sale Review

By Amanda Fontana

Morgane Le Fay is a high-end womenswear retailer, famous for bold designs in classic neutrals. Oversized jackets, ready-to-wear avant-garde gowns, and sheer patterned tops line the racks of this Soho-based store. The Morgane Le Fay sample sale, taking place right at 464 Broome Street, will be open until September 8th. The sample sale is stocked with a variety of pieces from older seasons, and in sizes ranging from extra small to large.

Morgane Le Fay pieces generally retail starting at $1000, so sample sale prices range between $140 for simpler pieces, such as crop tops, to $350 for full-length gowns. Clothes have a focus on a strikingly sharp-cut silhouette, and pieces are made to flatter any body type while maintaining a distinctly modern cut. The iconic sheer tops with delicately subtle patterns are timeless and elegant, ensuring they’ll last for seasons to come.

Though most items are from previous seasons, Morgane Le Fay’s neutral color palettes make it easy to repurpose summer pieces for colder seasons. The store even has a collection of plaid and flannel pieces on sale, which make perfect staples for any casual fall look. The oversized jackets are a must-have for the upcoming winter months, and with the prices steeply discounted from retail, now’s the best time to invest in one.

When: August 30th to September 8th, 11am – 7 pm

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Eileen Fisher

Sample Sales, Sample Sale, Sample Sale NY, NYC,


Meet Eileen Fisher; designer extraordinaire and creator of her own eponymous clothing line. Her comfy high-end line features everything from pajamas to business casual clothing. Her unique flare manifests itself in each of her pieces, which are designed to be comfortable, yet fashionable. Eileen’s line was premised on simplicity. She was irked by the fact that men have such an easy time getting dressed in the morning, while women’s clothing is forever getting more complicated. She doesn’t believe in runways or huge in-your-face events, she believes that clothing is made for real life.

Despite Eileen’s rise to fame in the fashion world, she didn’t follow the most traditional path to the designer life. Check out these 5 things you didn’t know about Eileen Fisher:

1Fisher’s Lack of Fashion Background

That’s right folks, this savvy designer who makes clothes for everyday use is not a graduate of FIT or LIM. Rather, she attended University of Illinois, starting out as a math major, before switching to interior design.

2. The Inspiration for Fisher’s First Piece Was Derived From the Japanese Kimono.

Those who have been exposed to the Eileen Fisher line are quite aware that none of her pieces look anything like the traditional kimono. Rather than the actual garb itself, Fisher was astonished by how this traditional article of clothing has withstood the test of time, and is still incredibly relevant. “I was intrigued that the kimono was the only shape in Japan that they used for years, how can you make a design to last that long? A design that belongs to a moment, but also, transcends a moment.” (Ellen Fisher quoted in an article in Fashionista.) This inspired the quality of simplicity in her line.

3. She is an Entrepreneur as well as Designer

        As mentioned previously, unlike most famous designers with renowned brand name lines, Fisher had no formal education in neither fashion nor business. The first piece of clothing she made was done in her home, using a sewing machine and a pair of scissors. “If I had some technical training, maybe I might have gotten the idea off the ground earlier,” said Fisher.” On the other hand, because I didn’t know what I was supposed to do or how I should do it, I just did it differently in my own way.” (http://fashionista.com/2016/04/eileen-fisher-fashionista-meetup)

4. She’s an Activist

         Not only is Eileen an established designer, she also plays a large role in assisting women and girls by activating their leadership potential. The “Activating Leadership Grant” funds programs that help women and girls activate their natural leadership qualities. Each year of the grant has its own unique theme. Non-profit organizations that fit the category apply, and are awarded on a relevance and need basis. 2016, the 7th year of the grant accepted organizations that follow the theme of applying leadership attributes.

5. There’s a Sample Sale coming up!

Want to see what all the hype is about? Come check out the Eileen Fisher sample sale at the boutique’s 9th street location. The sample sale will feature a peek at the spring line for up to 50% off in select sizes. Winter line in various sizes for 40% off. Keep in mind this sample sale is only two days long so save the date! March 11th and 12th
