The Calvin Klein Sample Sale: The Most Stereotypical Sample Sale Ever

Calvin Klein Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

All the old wives tales you were told about sample sales manifested at the Calvin Klein sample sale. You walk into this garment district warehouse looking room to complete chaos. Rows of messy tables, racks, and cardboard boxes filled the room. Shoppers frantically search the table of true samples for items that were cute, yet not damaged. You really need to be in the right frame of mind for this.

We rated the Calvin Klein sample sale a 5 out of 10. Prices were INCREDIBLE. Nothing was above $30. You can score Calvin Klein jeans for $10 and tops for $5. *Pause for reaction.* Keep in mind that cheap prices come with a hefty price. You have to sort through so much CRAP before you get to something wearable. True story: we found a shirt with the word “sample” in all caps written with a sharpie on the back. The place was also just way too hectic. The staff members were absolute dolls. You be the judge. Happy shopping!

Why is This Random Brand So Expensive: The Tucker Sample Sale

Tucker Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We traveled off the beat and path to 11th Avenue to check out the Tucker sample sale. The sale was held in a less vibrant, Chelsea Market look-a-like venue. The space was small, but there were quite a few racks and tables filled with men’s and women’s clothing. The advertisements read that the sale was 90% off. Prices started at $45 and went up to $80. That’s pretty pricey for a brand that we’ve never heard of. On the bright, side the stuff was cure!

We rated the Tucker sample sale a 6.5 out of 10. Their strength lied in variety. Almost every pattern can be found in dress, shirt, and skirt form. They had a few boxes with really pretty $20 shirts. (We even snagged one!) Most of the sizing was small or xsmall, but there were a few large items as well. For men, the Tucker sample sale had colorful button downs and flannels. If you are in the area, check out the sale. Hey, you may be willing to break out your passport, travel to 11th avenue, and pay a million dollars for nameless clothing. By all means, happy shopping

Back to School Fashions with Petit Bateau

Petit Bateau sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

The Petit Bateau sample sale is coming at the perfect time to stop the end-of-summer blues, and get us excited for fall! Petit Bateau is a high quality French clothing brand for children. They’re known for their colorful and cozy clothing that both parents and kids adore. Their sale features both late summer and fall pieces for children from infants to 12 years old. The selection is incredible with everything from lightweights tees to chunky knits.

The only disappointment was the price. Petit Bateau is an expensive brand retailing for $70-$150, which is a steep price for clothes children will out grow. The Petit Bateau sample sale offers around 50%-60% off per item. BUT, we were told the prices will drop and the sale will b extended into next week.

Small Space and Limited Inventory at the Morgan Lane Sample Sale

Morgan Lane Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

STYLEBOP.com (US)

The Morgan Lane sample sale disappointed us due to the small amount of inventory that were selling out quickly. Within 45 minutes, the coveted eye masks were gone, which is crazy! The sale was also held in a small venue, their showroom, which can make any amount of shoppers feel like a crowd. While the inventory left something to be desired, there was variety in the pieces being sold. There was lingerie, silk and cotton pajamas, swimwear, and even a vintage rack. Despite the limited pieces, some of the items (including the lingerie) was discounted around 80-90% off.

We gave this sample sale a 5 out of 10 due to the lack of items and the varying price ranges. Morgan Lane is generally quite expensive, so the sale may be worth a look for fans of the brand!

Discounted Treasures at the Tesoro Collective Sample Sale

Tesoro Collective Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

The prices at the Tesoro Collective sample sale were almost out of a dream! They at $10 and ended at $25, which is perfect for a budget conscious shopper. Tesoro Collective was founded by blogger, Lilliana Vazquez, and the pieces available at the sale showcase her fashion savvy. From suede biker jackets and frilly white tops to accented denim skirts and summery linen dresses, the options at the Tesoro Collective sample sale make the perfect summer wardrobe. However, the pieces are mostly production samples, so the sizes are mainly smalls and mediums.

We gave the Tesoro Collective Sample Sale a 9 out of 10! We found the selection to be impeccable with great finds at unbeatable prices. Make sure to check out this sale!

Prep For Fall at the Clever Alice Sample Sale

Clever Alice Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The Clever Alice sample sale wasn’t so clever with their store set up. As you approach the location, there is no clear indication that this is Clever Alice. Walk in the store, and you’ll see a bunch of random mannequins in a rather vacant space. Perhaps not the best first impression.

If you make it passed the front of the store, you will like what you see from the New York-based boutique. The Clever Alice sample sale featured an abundance of fall items. Everything was organized by style and price for effortless shopping. You can browse through flannels, jackets and knits at great prices. Knits and sweaters were at $20, and leather jackets were $150. Many of the items were from Minan Wong and Heartloom. Check out the Cleaver Alice sample sale to get a head start on your fall look. Happy shopping!

First Time at Their Showroom: The Rebecca Taylor Sample Sale

STYLEBOP.com (US)

By Cristina Martin

This time around we didn’t find the Rebecca Taylor sample sale at 260 Sample Sale. We noticed a big improvement when visiting their show room for this sale. Prices were great and the merch was fabulous. Since they ran their own sale, the discount margins were much higher. Discounts ranged from 80 – 90% off! We snagged a $475 blazer for only $75!

We gave the Rebecca Taylor sample sale a 7 out of 10.  Great sale, but if you aren’t skinny minny you won’t have much luck. This is a true sample sale, only selling sizes 0 – 6. However, if you fit the mold, you will find a bunch of blazers, sweaters, pants, skirts, and even shoes! Check out the Rebecca Taylor sample sale. Hurry, it’s only two days. Happy shopping!

Fashion Kenneth Cole Review Sample Sale ShopDrop

Do Your Homework Before You Visit the Kenneth Cole Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We love Kenneth Cole, but the prices were a joke at the Kenneth Cole sample sale.  We found items cheaper online! That is just disrespectful to sample sale shoppers. We found mules at the sale for $150, and then saw them online for $67.99. We also found tanks that were similar styles for cheaper online. Other shoes were 70% off. Jeans were 60% off, we even saw some shirts for only 20% off.

The sale was held in a big garage, so there is plenty of space to shop. Do your research before you go. Happy shopping!

Fashion KAS New York Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Beautiful Florals at the Kas Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The KAS sample sale features their classic hand-stitched, Indian-inspired prints. They had a variety of options from the traditional tops and bottoms to beach cover-ups and kaftans. There were about 5 or 6 racks with sample sizes 4 and 6. What I didn’t like about the sale was the fact that prices weren’t listed on each item. After I was let in the store, the sales associate explained that prices began at $20, and to ask about specific pricing. Another shopper had a ton of clothing in her hand, and stood there as he assigned prices to each item. As a jaded New Yorker, how can I trust that the $40 shorts I like, aren’t $20 for another shopper. I guess we will never know.

If you’re into patterns and florals, check out the KAS sample sale. You can never have too many pieces that are hand-stitched pieces. Happy shopping!
