Parker and Apparis: Lots of Cute Merch!

This Parker and Apparis 260 sale features tons of adorable pieces at discounts that don’t suck! The Parker merchandise has discounts of up to 80% off. While there isn’t a blanket discount for Apparis the pieces fall from $95–$175. Compared to the brand’s website the discounts aren’t that great though.

The sale is organized by brand and item. The Parker section has dresses galore and some tops and pantsuits as well. The sizing is kinda all over the place for both brands, but that’s usually a given at sample sales. The prints are flirty and fun—perfect for this upcoming spring/summer! 

Apparis’s (say that ten times fast) section is filled with impossibly soft vegan fur and leather coats. There are a lot of cool patterns but also some more neutral coats. There is also a quality range of sizes.

As always, wait until the last day for 260 sales to get those extra discounts!!

This sale is a solid 6/10. I’m sure you’ll end up walking away with one or two nice pieces, but it’s not a must go. If you’re not in the area it’s not worth the trip.

Shoutout to the people working the sale: your music was popping!!

Park Yourself at the Parker Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Parker Sample Sale has some great merch, if you are a size small. I was disappointed in the lack of sizes at this sale but other than that, they literally have so much and all for under $100. All samples are $35 and they have a ton of gorgeous dresses and gowns on the sample racks. All leather is $70 which is such a discount for the amazing leather pieces they have. Everything else for the most part is $50 besides for Parker Black which is $70 for short dresses and $85 for gowns.

They have a small selection of shoes for $20 which is very worth it to check out. I scored a pair of thigh high boots for $20 and I am not mad! Overall, I gave this sale an 8/10, the only thing that could have been better was having more sizes but other than that you should be checking this sale out!

Sparkling Sequins – The Parker Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the chance to stop by the Parker Sample Sale. While we were hoping to score some amazing sample pieces, there was an extremely limited selection. The pricing was nothing special either. If you need a sequined dress for your next Studio 54, Gatsby themed party or to just wear around the house, look no further. There is a decent selection of gowns as well. Just as a warning, the line to try stuff on is extremely long and will in fact test you patience.

Overall we rated the Parker Sample Sale an 5 out of 10. The selection was nothing crazy, we recommend you stop by if you are in the area. If not, you really shouldn’t lose sleep over this sale.

Everything is 50 at the Parker NY Sample Sale

parker ny sample sale

This 2-day Parker NY sample sale is different from the 5-day sales at 260. Number one – the prices are quite impressive. Everything at the sale, yes, that means everything, was $50. That included sweaters, short dresses, long dresses, tops, skirts and pants (although we didn’t find too many of those).

The place was pretty empty – there were 5-7 people the whole 2 hours after work, which should be peak hours but obviously weren’t. The 12 racks were spread in a semi-circle in the showroom, and the fitting room was a makeshift one out of racks and rags.

The staff was on the ruder side (I don’t love getting screamed out for standing an inch too much to the right), the place was clean. Were there sizes? Most items were small, although I did spot a size 14 and a number of mediums. If you’re willing to dig around and want some $50 finds, head on over before the sale ends.

Get Your Dress Game On at the Parker Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Summer is back at the Parker sample sale.  There are so many casual and evening dresses to choose from in their large, and chic midtown showroom. If you have a bunch of weddings coming up, this is the sale for you. The most expensive dresses were evening gowns at $180! We can’t even believe it. Parker had a mix of samples and regular stock. Dresses weren’t the only thing on the menu; you can also shop tops, bottoms, jumpsuits, rompers, outerwear, and coverups. Most of the sample were in great condition and $50 or under.

We rated this sample sale an 8 out of 10. Merchandise was excellent: plenty of options and very beautiful pieces! Prices were also very fair. Most items are summer pieces, so you do have to wait until next year to sport it. On the other hand, with the holidays coming up you can stock up on dresses. Happy shopping!

Beads, Sequins and Funky Earrings at the Parker & Bauble Sample Sale

Parker NY is having yet another sample sale at 260, and this time Bauble Bar is joining the display of the famed sequin dresses. There is a large collection of separates and dresses in various sizes. Most items fall into the $70-$150 range. We recommend being smart about pricing: since all items are priced by category, some dresses come at a $300 discount, while some tops are only $20 off retail. If the price range is within your reach, and you like the Parker NY style, you are bound to walk out with a few pieces you love. On the Bauble Bar side, the jewelry is all under $25, and the selection allows for some playful statement making. As always, photos and prices below.

Inside the Parker Sample Sale – Fall 2017

Parker Sample Sale NY

Can’t believe we’ve made it to our first cycle – the first sale we covered on our blog was Parker and that we back in April. The Parker sample sale was filled with stock racks of clothing items for women in sizes 0-12. Lots and lots of beaded dresses in many different lengths. Long beaded gowns that would be perfect for Gatsby themed dinners, and cocktail dresses that will turn heads. 70% of the items included evening wear, a whole rack of tops (mostly for the Summer), a small rack of mini-skirts (leather and tweed) and pants. I saw a few blazers and vests. What you won’t find much of is sweaters. Only found 2-3 in the entire place.

From a pricing standpoint, the price list was a bit confusing. There were different prices for tops, beaded tops, sample tops… whatever. I ended up asking associates for help with pricing when I was interested in a particular item. All items were under $200 and the selection was nice. For the more price-conscious, there is a sample rack in the back of the store, filled with one-of-a-kind items that are $30-$50 cheaper than stock. The prices range from $40 to $150. Price List and Photos attached below.

For a review of the April sample sale, click here. Parker NY gave 50 lucky ShopDroppers an additional 15% off, which were quickly snatched up by our savvy shoppers. If you want to hit up this one you have until Sunday.
