I’m saying “Boooo” to the Jimmy Choo Sample Sale

By: Jacqueline Munro

Overall I was not impressed by the Jimmy Choo sample sale. The sale is taking place at 123 West 18th St. in the Metropolitan Pavilion. If you’re having trouble finding it, just look for the insanely long line of people standing on the sidewalk.

At this sale there were TONS of shoes; I was shocked by the amount of merchandise when I walked in. All of the shoes were organized by size. Each size ranging from 34.5-41 had its own section of racks/tables that were overflowing with shoes. The prices for women started at $200 and went up to $375 plus an additional $200 for any exotics. There were lots of pumps and wedges but sadly there were not as many boots/booties, sneakers, or flats. The sneaker selection that they did have was pretty underwhelming and the flats weren’t great either. There were a few hot pairs of booties, though! Additionally, there were lots of sandals, which is quite unfortunate given that were almost in the month of November. But for all of you snow birds out there, this sale is the perfect place to start prepping your s-winter shoe-drobe. In addition to all of the shoes, there was also a small selection of bags ranging from clutches to large totes, and they’re selling fast! The mens section was decent and all shoes were $150 which is great! How come women’s shoes couldn’t be priced like that!?

Overall I rated this sale a 6.5/10. Although there were approximately a gazillion pairs of shoes, a lot of them were outdated and just down-right ugly. The pricing was okay, but not amazing and the line was absurdly long. I’d say go if you’re a huge Jimmy Choo fan, but don’t expect to be wow-ed by anything.

Coats Galore at the Gerard Darel Sample Sale

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Gerard Darel sample sale is being hosted by Eclipse NY in Chelsea. When I heard about the sale, I had never heard of the brand, so I didn’t know what to expect going into it. But I was very pleasantly surprised!

There is a ton of merchandise at this sale and sizes range from XS to XXL. Out of everything that they had in the showroom, the coats were my favorite. There were tons of gorgeous styles in various sizes for just $250! Now that might sound like a lot, but there were high-quality parkas with mink fur hoods and shearling collars, cashmere coats with fur hoods, and other fancy peacoats. There were tons of cool sweaters and super chic blouses priced at $85. Oh and if you’re in the market for some new pants, you’ll definitely find some at this sale. There were about 10 huge racks filled with different kinds of pants ranging from black leopard jeans to plaid slacks. On average the discounts ranged from about 75%-85% off.

Overall I gave this sale a 9/10. Aside from the great pricing, beautiful organization, and awesome selection, the staff members were beyond kind as always. Eclipse, you’ve done it again! Bravo!!!

A+ for the A.P.C. Sample Sale

By: Jacqueline Munro

The A.P.C. sample sale is being hosted by Eclipse NY down in Chelsea. I love Eclipse because every time I go there the staff members are SO kind and the showroom is beautifully organized. AND, it’s right near the Standard Biergarten so I can go drink my self pity away after I spend a gajillion dollars at their sales.

At this sample sale prices range from about 70%-85% off. T-shirts are $30, shirts are $60, jeans are $60, sweaters are $75, jackets are $100, coats are $175, and shoes range from $80-$130. Overall I am really pleased with these prices. The merchandise includes gorgeous jackets and coats, awesome sweaters, classic APC t-shirts, a s*** ton of jeans, fun skirts and dresses, stylish accessories, and more eccentric pieces like corduroy rompers! For men there are lots of options too — lots of shirts and jackets as well as some cool sweatpants and accessories. I got my boyfriend a stunning wool jacket with a faux shearling collar for $100 down from $690! He told me not to because he has something similar, but I literally couldn’t leave it.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 9/10. Eclipse has been killing the sample sale game lately and I could not be happier about it. Their pricing is spot on, their showroom is neat, their inventory is stocked up, and their employees are a delight. Definitely head over to the A.P.C. sample sale, you won’t regret it.

Alexandre Birman Sample Sale has Gorgeous Options for Everyone

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Alexandre Birman sample sale is simply amazing, I’ve never seen such a heavenly sight. There are a ton of stunning shoes ranging from size 5 to size 12.5 — I didn’t even know brands made shoes in women’s size 12.5! If you missed out on our VIP access to this sale, make sure you purchase the monthly package so that you don’t keep passing up opportunities for early entry to great sales like this one!

This sample sale is taking place in a huge showroom in Chelsea. There is a seemingly endless amount of tables filled with shoes lining each wall, and they are all organized by size. Staff members are stationed at each table and they are more than willing to help you find the right pair of shoes. My favorite pieces at the sale are all booties, but there are also amazing pumps, sandals, and espadrilles. There are lots of classic styles as well as some more eccentric ones. From colorful snakeskin wedges to black suede boots you’re sure to find something you’ll love.

Overall I’m giving this sale an 8/10. The pricing is good, and the selection is unreal. Furthermore, not having to deal with nasty employees or a terrible ambiance like at 260 made everything 100x more enjoyable. Definitely check out this sale ASAP; I have a feeling it is going to be popular and you DON’T want to miss out.

The Pricing at the Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale is Amazing

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Roberto Cavalli sample sale is being hosted by the third party retailer Luxe Market in SoHo this week. If you haven’t gone yet, you’re missing out. Almost everything at the sale is 90% off, but the selection is somewhat limited, so you better get over there ASAP!

At this sample sale they have gowns, short dresses, embellished jeans, leather vests and jackets, and beautiful tops. Most of the pieces are classic Cavalli. Funky patterns, bright colors, and unique designs. Although the selection is small each item comes in various sizes and they will be restocking daily. The showroom is very well organized and the staff members are dedicated to making your shopping experience superb. Overall I rated this sale an 8.5/10. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed with Luxe Market.

The Illesteva Sample Sale will have you Looking like a Celeb in no time

The Illesteva sample sale was held in its showroom downtown in the Canal area. The largest room had 4 tables lined with sunglasses 🕶; designs included the those worn by Gigi Hadid, Kourtney K, Meghan Markle and other celebrities. While the selection was extensive, the prices weren’t nearly as impressive. They ranged from $50 to $180 but the average sunglasses costed $100-$120. I mean, that’s not even 50% off for a lot of the styles. 

There was a separate room with handbags ($175), ski goggles, optic glasses and men’s sunglasses. The staff members wanted us to know that the merchandise would be restocked throughout the sale – so there you go, we’ve passed the information on. To be completely honest, we’ve scored Illesteva sunglasses for the same prices in discount stores, so we can’t give the sample sale more than a 6/10.

The Michelle Waugh Sample Sale will Fulfill all of you fall Wardrobe Dreams

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Michelle Waugh Sample Sale has some of the most beautiful outerwear pieces I’ve ever seen. Although everything is expensive, I understand the pricing because each piece is beautifully made.

I hadn’t heard of Michelle Waugh before going to this sample sale, but I’m thrilled that I discovered the brand today. Her coats are absolutely stunning and the materials she uses are top-notch. I know that the prices are a bit steep but given the quality of the products I’m not surprised. Among the somewhat small selection there was a nice variety of coats and jackets that were all different materials, colors, and sizes. The duster coats were a dream and the cashmere blazers were exquisite. I would kill for one of her pieces, but my bank account is already dead.

Overall I rated this sale a  7/10. Even though the prices were a little too high, the gorgeous merchandise and extremely kind staff members were more than redeeming.

Spend Your Lunch Hour at the Balenciaga Sample Sale

balenciaga sample sale friends and family 2018 july

By: Cristina Martin

Yes, you heard it first from us! Balenciaga is having a one day sample sale near Union Square. The sale ends at 5:00 p.m. today, so sneak out of your office ASAP. When we posted about the sale in the morning, people had no issues getting in. Once the brand got wind of the ShopDrop effect, they started turning people away. Our advice, email from a personal email account and do not mention any medium. Many people are able to get in – so we think it’s worth a shot.

They have everything on sale from handbags, to wallets, to RTW clothing. Prices are beyond incredible. You won’t find anything for above $500. That’s amazing, coming from a brand that sells dad sneakers for $895! If you’ve been dying for that classic city bag that costs $2,190, you can get it for $400 at the Balenciaga sample sale.

I’m telling you, it’s worth getting in trouble with your boss. Head over there… like 5 minutes ago! Details below and happy shopping!
