High Fashion at Affordable Prices | Inside The Theory & Helmut Lang Sample Sale

Theory Helmut Lang Sample Sale

This week at the Clothingline space are the Theory & Helmut Lang Sample Sales. These two brands often share sample sale dates at Clothingline, evenly distributed on the sales floor. There is a range of sale items including apparel, shoes and accessories mostly for Women. They made a space for the Men’s apparel in the back with two rounders and two full wall racks of items.  The sizes were well represented for both genders however the majority of the items were in smaller sizes including shoes (largest size that were spotted was size 39) in both stock and true samples. The price range is from $25 to $155 which isn’t terrible considering that most of these items retail well over $500, so the savings is massive!

Full price list is as follows for both brands:

Belts $25

Scarves $45

Tees & Tops $50

Sweaters $50

Skirts/ Shorts/ Pants $55

Dresses/ Jumpsuits $70

Shoes $75

Blazers/ Zip Up Sweatshirts $100

Boots/ Booties $125

Handbags $125

Vests & Outerwear $155

Theory Helmut Lang Sample Sale

Whether you are looking for casual pieces or work wear, there is so much to choose from at this sale. I would recommend adding this sale to your places to shop list this week. You might get lucky if you go on the last days of the sales to score even more deals as they tend to reduce prices towards the end of the sale. You risk not having a large selection to choose from but if you’re not looking for anything in particular, I would suggest going then. You will definitely make out big!

Get full details on this sale below.

January 16 – January 19
Tuesday 11AM-8PM
Wednesday-Friday 11AM-7PM

Furry Heaven at the Belle Fare sample sale

Belle Fare new york sample sale review by ShopDrop

Although I grew up in freezing Russia, I never experienced the cold the way it is felt in New York.The ice somehow seeps in through layers of clothes and gives no rest. Therefore, I was absolutely delighted to be invited to the Belle Fare fur sample sale by Shelly & Renee. Besides for the fact that the selection was enormous – the entire showroom was lined with vests, capes, jackets and coats made of the softest cashmere and highest quality furs, everything at the sale was between $50 and $700. Despite my vegan diet, I couldn’t help but try on a number of items. My favorite was a double sided cashmere cape with a soft fur collar – going for $500 at the sample sale. All of the items were over 80% off retail prices.

If you are in the fashion district in the next two days, definitely head over for a delightful treat. And remember to tell Shelly you are from ShopDrop!

Pop Into the Alice & Trixie and Love Sam Sample Sale

By Melissa Atkinson, The Reasonable Style

No need to plan out your sample sale shopping today when you can shop 2 brands at one sample sale. Alice & Trixie plus Love Sam equal sample sale heaven. With an entry way and an additional room filled with samples and stock items, you wouldn’t even know where to start. Alice & Trixie had more to offer at this sale offering both stock items ($39-$79) and vintage samples that started at $3 for the vintage pieces, yes $3. I was surprised myself when I seen the price tag. Although some of the items were defective, there were other items that were in great condition.You have to take your time and be patient in order to score something good on those racks.

Vintage Dress $5

Vintage Dress $10

Love Sam had more wear now pieces from stock ($25-$75). They even had 2 Shearling Coats available (I’m sure that they will be gone by the time you read this). The prices were not listed, it instructs you to see an associate so you know that the price was similar to retail.

Both brands offered a range of sizes, mostly small sizes. Also available were small accessories like scarves which were 3 for $15 and shoes in ALL sizes. The shoes were gently worn but they all were on sale for $30 from brands like TOPSHOP and Steve Madden to name a few.

This sale came right on time for the holiday season. You can get quite a few items for your loved ones without hurting your pocket. Want to check it out, head over to:

Marchesa is one of the brands that produces evening gowns meant to steal the night. Lace, beading and exquisite designs produce dresses that are both romantic and flattering at the same time. At retail, gowns cost between $800 and $10,000. That is why we were excited when Shelly & Renee announced their own Marchesa sample sale where dresses (stock!! in all sizes) sold for up to 80% off. At the sale, Notte sold for $265 and Marchesa proper for up to $3K. There were also Parkas for $1K and real fur coats for a bit under $3K. And to top it off, additional reductions were announced today! So this is the opportunity to shop for fashionable items and spend nothing compared to the actual value.

Fashion Jimmy Choo Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop Uncategorized

Invitation Only – Jimmy Choo Sample Sale Review

By: Amanda Fontana

The Jimmy Choo invitation-only sample sale took place at the Met Pavillion two weeks ago. The enormous showroom was completely filled with a massive stock ranging from women’s shoes, boots, purses, scarves, sunglasses, belts, and even a selection of men’s shoes. Prices started at $50 and ranged to $450, a massive discount considering Jimmy Choo pieces often retail for upwards of $1,000.

Most accessories were one size, but the shoes had a massive range of sizing. There was also a variety in purse sizing as well, so smaller evening purses were much cheaper. Check out the photos to see a small range of all the products!

The sale was exclusive and required a pass to enter, and the line to get in went around the block– even for press. That said, the wait was definitely worth it; the sale was extraordinarily busy, but the products were all amazing and worth browsing through.

The event only lasted for two days– three, if you include VIP early access– so if you’re interested in attending private sales like this one, be sure to RSVP and follow the instructions on the app! They come and go very quickly, and invitations can be hard to come by if you wait too long. To stay up to date on more exclusive and invitation-only sample sales, be sure to download the ShopDrop App, follow us on Instagram, and add us on Snapchat @shopdropapp!

Harvey Faircloth Sample Sale Review

Harvey Faircloth

By Melissa Atkinson, The Reasonable Style

Fall weather is officially here and so is the Harvey Faircloth Sample Sale filled with Fall 2017 stock items. With a decent portion of the showroom dedicated to the Harvey Faircloth line, there are a variety of product categories to shop for this Fall season. Items include tops, pants, skirts, jackets and many more ranging in sizes 0-10 and small-large. Prices were between $45 and $850 which is a wide range and more than I personally anticipated price wise. The good news is that yesterday they were offering an additional 20% off already up to 60% off prices which was a great incentive. The sales reps did not confirm nor deny if the additional 20% off will be continuing on for the duration of the sale but I recommend heading over to the sale to try your luck.

Check out some of the items and its sale price (excluding the additional 20% off) that were available at the sale below.

Some personal favorites of mine were their blazers, silk tops, and trousers. The showroom is enormous, so it’s hard to narrow it down; be sure to check it out for yourself!

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!

Does the Sample Sale Ever Really End?

It happens sometimes, there’s a sample sale that you really want to go to, but for whatever reason you’re just too busy and just can’t make it. However, there’s still a little hope that you can still snag a deal on that designer clothing.

On my way to a different sample sale in SoHo, I wasn’t paying attention and walked into what I thought was the sample sale I was planning on going to, but boy was I wrong. I ended up at what I like to call the 260 Sample Sale warehouse of past sales. There, they had the leftovers from various of their most recent sample sales, with a pretty full size run, at the price point the sample sales usually get discounted to on the last day, and what I found to be the best thing was that I was alone. This specific location that they have doesn’t get any mention on their social media nor is it even listen on their website, but it is there and a true hidden gem for those who know about it.

When I went they had pieces from Bonobos, Scotch & Soda, Brian Atwood, Ben Sherman, Maiyet, Velvet, Peuterey, Barbara Bui, Elle Sasson, Nest Candles, along with many other brands. So whether you’re a man or woman into fashion, or you’re into the home goods and accessories side of sample sales, this location is perfect for you.
