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!

Refill Your Underwear Drawer at the Hanky Panky Sample Sale

hanky panky sample sale

It’s that time of year again when brands are just throwing their merchandise at you with all those sample sales. And Hanky Panky rented out Chelsea Market to sell chemises, bras and of course their famous thongs. Not that I’m speaking from experiences, but their thongs are probably up there with cosabella. They retail for $35 and at the sample sale they are selling for $12 a piece, and if you buy 12 you get one pair free. Up to you to decide if you’re spending $120 on strings!

Huge shoutout to @bespokebargains for the photos and report!

Extra 40% Off Sale Styles with Code: FINAL40. Valid: 1/18 12:00am EST – 1/22 11:59pm EST

Fashion Review Robert Marc Sample Sale Sample Sale Review

A Luxury Experience at the Robert Marc Sample Sale

Robert Marc Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

Usually when I cover sample sales I walk in and wander around looking at the merch and try to take everything in. But this changed at the Robert Marc sample sale; within three minutes of walking in one of the many staff members came over to ask if I needed anything. As someone who has worn glasses since 7th grade, I was definitely interested in what the staff had to say. The staff member immediately starting compiling potential frames which he thought would suit my face and asked me questions about my prescription. I was blown away, this type of attention is not normal for sample sales, this was a luxury experience.

While the prices may be high for pieces, they are still large discounts and glasses are more than just a fashion piece, they can be a medical device. Having high quality glasses is worth the investment, in my opinion. We gave this sale an 8 out of 10. The Robert Marc sample sale featured many luxury brands, including their own, and it well worth the trip!

The Early Bird Gets the Worm at the Scotch and Soda Sample Sale

Scotch and Soda Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

Loyal ShopDroppers know the importance of being early to sample sales, so we weren’t surprised to see that the inventory at the Scotch and Soda sample sale was slightly picked over. There were still racks left in the plenty of clothes, but it was clear that the early morning crowd had taken the best picks.

We gave the Scotch and Soda sample sale a 7 out of 10. The show room was very large and the staff was extremely friendly. Pricing was decent, but there was limited sizing for men and for women it was the same sizing across the board. The samples seemed to be geared toward early spring weather.

It’s a Full Moon at the Maje Sample Sale

Maje Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Don’t get me wrong, the Maje sample sale was actually pretty good, but it was a madhouse in there! Let’s chat about the sale first, and then we will get to the experience.

We rated the Maje sample sale an 8 out of 10. They had a ton of merchandise, and from what it looked like, there was more downstairs. You should have no problem finding your size. The clothing was also very cute. I wanted to leave there with almost everything! You can shop for every season as well. Coats and sweaters for fall/winter, and dresses and skirts for spring/summer. All beautiful! It gets a little tricky when it comes to pricing. The percentage off was actually pretty good! Most items that were retail $300 – $400 were selling for under $100. You can skip the fur coats. Yes, they went from slightly over $1,000 to $495, but you’re paying over $500 (after tax) for fur coats that are just okay. There are better fur sample sales out there, just hold tight. Mini skirts were another thing to skip. They were all SO cute! However, not so well priced. Pants were priced at $55 (more material), and skirts were priced at $75 (less material). You’re not getting the best bang for your buck. Shorts were also priced the same as pants which require less material than pants as well. Some food for thought.

I don’t know what is going on today, but shoppers were C R A Z Y! As usual, there was a line outside. Even though this wasn’t an iconic, insane 260 line, it must have still driven people nuts. Inside shoppers were pushing and shoving, and no one was apologizing to each other. I must have gotten hit several times. Shoppers were very aggressive when going through the clothing. At one point the 260 staff had to make an announcement to the shoppers reminding them that this is luxury fashion, and asking them not to throw things on the floor. They also had to ask shoppers to put items back in their original location. WOW… I don’t know if there’s a full moon coming up or what.

The Maje sample sale is definitely worth checking out. If you’re not dying for Maje right this second, then wait until the crowds die down a bit and for price reductions. Happy shopping, and may the odds ever be in your favor.
