Step Up Your Clutch Game at the Edie Parker Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

With the holidays coming up, you will have more of an excuse to dress up these next few months. Pair a super cute clutch with your party outfit at the Edie Parker sample sale. The sale was held in this tiny little room packed with clutches and accessories. Edie Parker clutches go for over $1,200. Prices at the sale started at $150, and most bags were in the $300 and $500 range. We know that’s pretty steep for a sample sale, but the discount is rather high.

There was a small line to get inside due to the space constraints. Once you got in, you were greeted by a large selection of cute, quirky clutches and accessories. The accessories, including phone cases, key chains, coasters, and trays, were priced a little lower if you’re shopping on a budget. The staff was incredibly sweet and really helpful if you had any pricing questions. So, if you frequent parties then it’s is worth to drop a few hundred bucks on a clutch. Happy shopping!

Nicholas Kirkwood Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The Nicholas Kirkwood sample sale opened to the public today at noon. Some Shopdrop users had the opportunity to get a sneak peek for their 8:00 a.m. early access. Wow, were we impressed! You can shop from a large selection of flats, heels, sneakers, and boots for both men and women. Items from previous seasons had great discounts. You can find most shoes for under $200. If you’re looking for something more contemporary, you can pick up current stock for 60% off. You can even snag their famous pearl boots!

We rated the Nicholas Kirkwood sample sale a 9 out of 10. It is very seldom that we give a rating of nine, so you know this sale really stood out to us. Prices were excellent. To get an idea, their flats usually run at around $400, at the sale you can snag a pair for $90. There was plenty of merchandise ranging from 34 to 42.5. Everything was conveniently organized by size. The staff was also incredibly sweet and helpful. Nicholas Kirkwood doesn’t always go on sale, so head over there fast and grab your own pair to take home. Happy shopping!

Beautiful Pieces at the Bonpoint sale

Bonpoint sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

ShopDrop users are always looking for great deals on children’s clothes. So we were very excited to check out the Bonpoint sale this past week. Just because children grow out of their clothes quickly, does NOT mean that there should be any sacrifice on style and BonPoint seems to agree! The sale was held in the same building as the Jimmy Choo and The Row sample sale. The sale was organized by size (or the child’s age) and featured both winter and summer items. Clothing items were 60% off marked price while shorts and shoes were 70% off retail price. There were even nifty charts around the room showing what 60% off would be on various price points. The inventory was truly beautiful and made me wish I could fit into the clothes…

We rated this sale a 7 out of 10 because while the sale was organized with plenty of pieces, the discount left something to be desired.

Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review The Row

Designer Goods at Designer Prices at The Row

The Row Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

Sample Sales are always a great place to get designer items at a major discount, which can help those who can’t always afford to shop designer. These discounts were not to be found at The Row sample sale. Even with an apparent discount of 70% off all Ready to Wear, handbags, and footwear, I could not find anything under $500. The Row is the clothing line of famed twins, Mary Kate and Ashely Olsen. The pair are known for their high fashion taste and their collection does not disappoint in that facet. The sale was organized by size and item. Racks with sizes XS, S, M, and L lined the lines with tables of sweaters, bags, and shoes in the middle and front. The pieces were understated and in muted colors, ranging from blacks, grays, blues, whites, and creams.

We rated this sale a 5 out of 10. While there was a wide selection, the pieces were still extremely expensive and nothing stood out as exceptional. It was also interesting to note that the sale was empty, which hopefully goes as a sign that the prices were not good enough to attempt major crowds. The sale also did not allow photos, which might have made it difficult to shop for someone else.

Twice in One Year: The Jimmy Choo Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We can’t believe it either. The Jimmy Choo sample sale usually rolls around at the start of every spring. We are already mentally prepared for scoring an invitation, waiting in line, competing with other shoppers, and waiting for those last day reductions. However, we were not ready for the Jimmy Choo sample sale to pop up this week as well! There’s not much of a difference between the spring sale and this sale, except for the selection. This time around the selection was much better. I remember back in the spring being disappointed with the selection and only leaving with one pair of boots. There were also repeat shoes from previous sales.

Pricing was almost the same as last time. Women’s shoes started at $250 instead of $200. Men’s shoes obnoxiously started at $150. Bags also started at $250. They had a lot of merchandise out, especially in size 37. It was also very well organized by size. The line to get in (even with an invitation) was extremely long. It went down 18th St. and wrapped around 6th Ave. When shoppers finally entered, boy were they shopping! Shoppers had multiple bags filled to the rim! I guess all that waiting makes you crazy! Don’t you worry! They will be restocking all week. Even on the first day, staff members were bringing out new boxes. Happy shopping!

We will be updating this post on Friday to report on reductions. Check back here for more information. Watch our Instagram (@shopdropapp) for live reporting.

Creature Comforts at the Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kate Spade Bedding Sample Sale

Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Kate Spade bedding sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Confession: I love Calvin Klein bedding! Their sheets and shams are incredibly soft and feel like you’re lying in a cloud. So I was extremely excited to stop by the Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kate Spade bedding sample sale today. The sale was in a large room with bins of sheets, duvets, shams and throws lining the walls, with a separate room for towel sets. Most of the pieces were Calvin Klein sheets, which came in muted greys, blues, and white. The pieces were generally organized by brand, then style, then size. Most of the pieces are Full/Queen, which is the bedding sample size, but there also plenty of King options. The only pieces that came in Twin or TwinXL were one style of Kate Spade duvet covers.

We rated this sale a 9 out of 10 because of the great selection and the amazing prices. I walked away with two Kate Spade duvet sets and only spent $40; normal retail price for both items would be $200. Everything is under $40! But, everything is cash only, so make sure to stop by an ATM before heading over!

Fashion Herno Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Move Over Canada Goose the Herno Sample is in Town

Herno Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The first Herno sample sale has hit the streets of Manhattan. Herno is a hot, up and coming Italian outerwear brand. You can find them right next to Canada Goose in Nordstrom. Now you can find them for 70% off in midtown. They had a large selection of both men’s and women’s coats, sweaters, and furs. At 70% off you can score a coat for a few hundred dollars.

The staff was incredibly sweet, and the space was great for shopping. However, you can expect long lines. They are also only accepting credit cards. Ditch your jacket from last year and head over to the Hanro sample sale for a new model. Winter is coming, and they are saying it’s going to be a cold one! Happy shopping!

Inside the Lanvin Sample Sale

Lanvin Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The private Lanvin sample sale officially kicked off on Sunday. Since it is a private sample sale you need an invitation to attend. Luckily, we made it inside to report back to you.

The Lanvin sample sale is held in a tiny space, packed with women’s and men’s clothing, accessories, shoes, and people. Prices were incredible! Everything was 80% off with the exception of the gowns which were at 90% off. That is incredible for Lanvin. I loved the women’s jackets and blazers. They were gorgeous! Men’s suits were also stunning. They even received archival pieces directly from France! Accessories consisted mostly of scarves for women and bow ties for men. They also had a pretty large selection of shoes. However, size 38 was going fast! People were inquiring about handbags. According to the sales associate they all went the first day, and they will be expecting a new shipment later this week. So… open to the public any time soon??? We don’t know just yet, but when we do, you will be the first to know. Happy shopping!

It’s a Thirty Seven Heaven at the Paul Andrew Sample Sale

paul andrew sample sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We had the opportunity to check out the Paul Andrew sample sale a day before it opened. Let me tell you, If you are a size 37, (roughly 7 in a U.S.) you hit the jackpot! Paul Andrew had a mix of samples, shoes from previous seasons, and shoes that never went to production. You are super lucky if you got to snag a one of a kind pair of Paul Andrew shoes. Prices started at $25 and went up to $250. However, there weren’t many in the $25 price point. We found only two damaged pairs for $25. Boots were mostly at the $250. Flats and heels were between $50 and $150. If you have an extra special event coming up, then you can browse through two tables of beautiful jeweled evening shoes. Men, we didn’t forget about you! (But Paul Andrew is) They are no longer making men’s shoes. Men can grab most shoes for $100!

We also loved the Paul Andrew showroom.  It is tucked away on 58th St. between Columbus Circle and the Plaza in a residential building. Very Gossip Girl-esque! In conclusion, you have two days to shop the Paul Andrew sample sale. We recommend you go the first day because inventory is limited, and they are not restocking. Happy shopping!
