Minimalist Summer Chic – Eileen Fisher Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to checkout the Eileen Fisher Sample Sale in the East Village. There were two separate sections, one having regular merchandise offered at a sale price and the other was all sample clothing and accessories.

The Eileen Fisher sample sale offered a minimalistic assortment of merchandise. The racks were lined with limited color such as taupe, military green, and auburn as well as scales of black and white. The Eileen Fisher Sample Sale offered extremely chic and simplistic clothing but had limited quantity.

We rated the Eileen Fisher Sample Sale a 6 out of 10. The clothing was minimalistic and chic but there was limited availability in all the samples, but they did have a separate rack of discounted item from their regular line.The staff was extremely nice and attentive to the customers. The merchandise was priced generally high for samples. The Eileen Fisher Sample Sale embodied minimalistic chic work clothing. If you are looking for a minimalistic base piece and have a larger budget, we recommend you take a look!

Stripes and Gingham Galore – The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale

By Ashley Randall

Today we had the opportunity to check out the combined Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale downtown at 151 Wooster Street. Dreamy and colorful patterned apparel lined all the racks, a majority of which were dresses, skirts and tops.

The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale felt as if you were transported from the rainy streets of New York to a bright and sunny day at the beach. The sale offered a lot of chic striped and gingham patterned merchandise. Caroline Constas offered both clothing from her collection as well as a section full of samples. The Caroline Constas samples were more limited and cheaper than the normal collection. Lemlem had a large collection of both maxi dresses, rompers and beach accessories but a limited selection of shoes.

We rated the Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. The clothing was incredibly cute and chic but offered limited variation, especially Lemlem who seemed to only have striped merchandise. The apparel offered by both Caroline Constas and Lemlem felt as if it were designed solely for the summer months. The merchandise was still priced quite high and there was an extremely long line for both the fitting room and register. Yet all the  merchandise made us feel as if we were relaxing in the Hamptons with a glass of rosé in hand. If you are in need of chic summer clothing and have a larger budget, we recommend you take a look!

haus alkire sample sale ny

Haus Alkire is a relatively new brand founded by husband and wife. Every single item of clothes screams quality, the materials are custom produced in Italy & Japan, and the clothing is manufactured in NYC. The brand has simple, flattering designs that would look chic on anyone.

Haus Alkire sample sale is on the pricier side. We gave the sample sale a 7 out of 10, because the items were gorgeous but the cheapest shirt was $95. If you are willing to spend money on quality clothes though, this is definitely one you should check out.

Cushnie et Ochs Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

A Sneak Peak of the Cushnie et Ochs Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We stopped by the CeO midtown showroom to get a preview of the Cushnie et Ochs sample sale. The showroom was filled with elegant pieces including gowns, cocktail dresses and casual wear.

You can shop regular stock for 80% off retail. There were also two racks with samples for pre-set prices. What Cushnie did that was really unique was adding a “damaged” rack, where every item sold for $50. If you don’t mind a little alteration or sending a piece to the dry cleaners, you can score some really nice clothes. I also really appreciate that they were honest and separated the damaged clothing from the rest.

We rated the the Cushnie et Ochs sample sale a 8 out of 10. Although it was still a bit pricey, the discount was still significant. They had really beautiful samples and regular stock items. We recommend you check it out!

Inside the Marchesa Sample Sale

Marchesa sample sale review

Shelly and Renee are hosting the Marchesa sample sale once again and the lines are out the door. The legendary gowns are famous for the lace, tulle and embellished designs. They make the perfect bridesmaid and gala gowns. If you have a hot party coming up, that’s definitely a sale we recommend.

While prices started at $250, most items sold in the $2K-$3K range (still a significant departure from the retail prices that go as high as $14K per dress). If you have a wedding coming up, need to steal the night and have money to spend, definitely check this one out.

Now that I have your interest, let’s chat about the sale.

We gave the the Hilton Hollis sample sale a 8 out of 10 ShopDrop Rating. The prices were really good! Regular stock was about 80% off.  Samples ranged from $40 – $200. (Retail prices are $100 – $1,400) The space was small, but packed with a bunch of merchandise. The Hilton Hollis sample sale ton of regular stock, but only one rack of samples. Here’s a secrete: some regular stock items made it to the sample rack. 😉 Leave your husband, boyfriend, or friend at home. No men allowed inside due to the fact that there are no proper changing rooms. My friend tagged along, and poor guy had to wait in the hall. Yet again, the staff was so friendly! Overall very positive shopping experience.

Posh Furniture at the ABC Home and Carpet Sample Sale

abc home sample sale

By: Cristina Martin

I’m not exactly sure if the people at ABC Home and Carpet understand the definition of a sample sale, because the prices were still astronomical. However, there is a silver lining. The pieces at the ABC Home and Carpet sample sale were beautiful! Discounts ranged from 30 – 70% off. The sale took place on the 4th floor. Everything was on sale, from lighting to bedding.

We gave the ABC Home and Carpet sample sale a 5 out of 10. Yes there was a lot beautiful things for sale, but let’s be honest, who can really afford it?! Okay, let’s say you had some money under your mattress to treat yourself, can you really cram anything else into your apartment? Honestly, the high prices are such a shame, because there were some really cool pieces there. My favorites had to be the little wall desk and the antique cash register. (Shown in the pictures below.)

If you’re in the area, check it out. If anything you can grab a bite at their restaurant, the delicious ABC Kitchen.

Every girl dreams of owning a classic Chanel suit. With the right heels and accessories, you can take yourself back to an age of glamour and sophistication. Perhaps, add an Hermes scarf to complete the look. Well, you can  turn your dreams into a reality at the Vintage Chanel and Hermes sample sale. At the sale you can find those classic Chanel and Hermes pieces, in addition to dresses and gowns from other notable designers like Zac Posen and Marchesa. Naturally, you can do all this for the right price. Even though this is technically a sample sale, and  they offered items at a major discount, the prices were still high.

As they say… following your dream can come with a hefty price tag. Ha!

We gave the Vintage Chanel and Hermes sample sale a ShopDrop rating of 7 out of 10. Although prices were still high, the merchandise was excellent. They had so many beautiful pieces in excellent condition. In addition to the classic pieces the gowns were to die for, you can get a simple, elegant gown, or an extravagant one. No lines, no bag check! (Hey, that can also be a dream. At least it’s mine!) The staff was tremendous! They were very friendly and helpful with out being overbearing. By the time I left we were all talking fashion, our lives, the weather, you name it! Even other shoppers were very friendly. One of the best sample sale shopping experiences hands down.

If you have the cash the splurge, it’s a great investment!

Fashion Jimmy Choo Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

The Most Coveted Sale of the Year: Jimmy Choo Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

People began to line up early for the Jimmy Choo sample sale. Luckily, we were able to get inside an hour early with a press pass to bring you the scoop. This sample sale is one of the most coveted sales because of the excellent condition of their samples, large selection, and low prices. The Jimmy Choo sample sale also not only restocks, but prices are slashed in half on the last day.

We gave the Jimmy Choo sample sale a 6 out of 10 ShopDrop rating. They had an abundance of men shoes, women’s shoes, bags, and other accessories. I docked some points because although they had a large inventory, I wasn’t impressed with the styles of shoes. The styles were either super extra or basic. For $200 + a shoe, I need to love them. It’s also unfair that they price ALL their men’s shoes at $150 flat. Yet the women’s shoes, their core business, were priced between $200 – $375.

We will be keeping an eye on this sale throughout the week. Stay tuned for an update on the last day, Friday. For now, details and photos are below.

UPDATE: 5/11/18 – Prices went down at 1:30 p.m. The selection was so so, and it went quickly.  I guess the word about last day prices got out quickly.
