Sample Sale Review: MAJE

MAJE sample sale in NY

This morning we headed out to the MAJE sale hosted in midtown. The nice part was that there were no lines so we had an easy time getting in. From the first few moments at the sale it is obvious that MAJE is not an American brand. (It’s French). The sizes are European, so you had to translate numbers like 1,2,3 into 4,6,8. The racks at the entry are filled with jackets and tops perfect for the corporate woman. There were long tweed jackets in light pastel and bright pink colors. The designs are clean, chic and classy. Jackets were priced at $145, while tops were at $85. Leather tops and blazers were gorgeous and more expensive. Original prices are north of $500 – so all things considered, the sample sale offers significant bargains.

Toward the back of the store were the dresses – all selling for $105. This is where being a savvy consumer comes in handy. All of the dresses are nice. But at $105, some are nice and some are a steal. There were a number of long-sleeved dresses that can be worn to the office in the summer. A few slimming silhouettes, and some power cocktail dresses. Another awesome perk is that the dressing room was pretty convenient – we could try on dresses, make decisions and be in and out within 20 minutes.

 

If you have half an hour and can get to the area of 5th Ave and 28th St, we highly recommend you go. Details of the sale are below.

Sample Sale Review: Lionette Jewelry NY

New York Sample Sale Jewelry

By Liza Sakhaie, ShopDrop Fellow

After following the Israeli jewelry line since their start eight years ago, I finally got the chance to purchase some of their statement pieces at their showroom sample sale this week! When I walked in, I was struck by a wall with tons of unique Lionette pieces, all 40% off their original prices.

Their infamous chunky necklaces, typically around 700 dollars, were marked down to almost $400.

The colorful, bold earrings add the perfect touch to an all white or all black outfit (originally $150-$250). And lucky enough for me, there were over 30 pairs to choose from!

My favorite of the selection was the buckets of jewelry to the side of the main wall, with pieces marked down to under $100 dollars. In their I found a number of “hand bracelets” that I had seen on bloggers such as Lainy Hedaya, otherwise known as Haute In Habit.

This signature Lionette piece, originally $700, was now just $100!

Since all of Lionette’s jewelry is handmade and they work out of their showroom, I was even able to put in a request to recreate a sold out choker in my favorite colors (in the works now– to be posted on our Instagram soon)!
