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!

HAUS ALKIRE sample sale

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.

KAS NY sample sale – Inspired in India, Made in NY

KAS NY sample sale

Personally, I love going to sample sales where I could meet the designer and talk about the history of the brand. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to meet two of the designers. KAS Ny was founded by Kyra, an Indian born designer who grew up in NY. The brand is famous for hand-embroidered pieces and cover-ups and sells at Bloomingdales & Nordstrom for $89 (separates) and $120 (dresses).

The KAS sample sale is a treasure hunt. None of the items are marked, and everything is priced under $80. Dresses are mostly between $40 & $50, separates are mostly $20-$30. If you’re into bohemian chic and want a few fresh pieces for the Summer, definitely add this one to your shopping list.

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Bandier Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue Location. The racks are filled with a variety of merchandise and an assortment of different sizes. Including fun and colorful leggings, tops, bras and matching sets.

The Bandier Sample Sale was a dream to anyone women who loves fitness, as well as those who spend their days dressed in athleisure. The sale offered everything from high intensity workout pants to chic bomber jackets and everything in-between. The Bandier Sample Sale had an amazing selection of both performance and leisure sneakers, including brands such as Haus by Golden Goose, Athletic Propulsion Lab, Adidas and Nike.

We rated the Bandier Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. Although the Bandier Sample Sale did have a great selection of merchandise and sizes available, the prices were still quite high. There was no line to get inside but the environment was hectic. They did have a great selection of both clothing and shoes so we recommend you check it out!

Isabella Companies Sample Sale – Great European Brands at Not Such Great Prices

elisa cavaletti

Isabella company imports small luxury European brands into the US market: Elisa Cavaletti, Aaiko, Rino & Pelle. The company hosts a bi-annual sale in their showroom. We went to check it out and run an early access event.

Overall, we gave the sale a 4 out of 10, because although the merchandise was really nice and high quality, the brands didn’t have much recognition (at least in the states), and we were able to find retail prices that were the same as at the sample sale, so totally confused about the discount.

The sale opens to the public on Wed, May-29.

Veronica Beard Sample Sale Review

veronica beard sample sale

Veronica Beard is one of our favorite sample sales – hosted in her showroom with a 90%+ discount, it is one you definitely do not want to miss. The sample racks (prices starting at $30) were picked over by 1PM but there were still a few finds if you had the patience for it.

The collection rack was also great, a nice selection in a variety of sizes (2-10) starting at $50. We found gorgeous dresses that retailed for $395 and sold for $80 at the sale. If you’re in the area, definitely 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.

Hilton Hollis sample sale

By: Cristina Martin 

It’s a beautiful day for shopping here in NYC. Browsing through the Hilton Hollis sample sale in comfortable AC is a nice break from the July temperatures.

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.

By: Cristina Martin

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!
