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.

Ironically No Lines at The Line Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Since everyone and their mother flocked to the LXR and Co sample sale, The Line sample sale had… no line. The Line had absolutely beautiful pieces from various designers. You can shop from Calvin Klein to Dolce & Gabbana. If you were a big Protagonist fan, then you were in luck. Protagonist filled the racks. You can also shop home, accessories, books, and shoes.

We rated The Line sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. The selection was magnificent and the space wasn’t that crowded. Prices were a bit high, but with good markdowns from 70% – 75%. The Line sample sale scored most of their points in the fantastic selection of merchandise. Opening day of The Line sample sale was the same day that NYC got hurricane Florance rain. The 260 staff had the nerve to kick people out in the pouring rain. Shoppers just wanted to wait a little bit until it passed. The 260 staff, instead of asking everyone nicely to not block the door, decided to yell at everyone to leave because they have umbrellas. In that monsoon, an umbrella will not help much. However, as usual, that’s 260 being their usual rude selves. Happy shopping!

Fashion Morgan Lane Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Small Space and Limited Inventory at the Morgan Lane Sample Sale

Morgan Lane Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

STYLEBOP.com (US)

The Morgan Lane sample sale disappointed us due to the small amount of inventory that were selling out quickly. Within 45 minutes, the coveted eye masks were gone, which is crazy! The sale was also held in a small venue, their showroom, which can make any amount of shoppers feel like a crowd. While the inventory left something to be desired, there was variety in the pieces being sold. There was lingerie, silk and cotton pajamas, swimwear, and even a vintage rack. Despite the limited pieces, some of the items (including the lingerie) was discounted around 80-90% off.

We gave this sample sale a 5 out of 10 due to the lack of items and the varying price ranges. Morgan Lane is generally quite expensive, so the sale may be worth a look for fans of the brand!

The Classic Italian Chic at 80% Off – The Bottega Veneta Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Bottega Veneta Sample Sale at 123 West 18th Street. The room was filled with lots of gorgeous gowns, tops and skirts that would make Amal and George Clooney jealous!

If you need a tux for your man, look no further. Make your man look sleek and sexy for only 200 bucks! All the whimsical pieces made us feel as if we were sitting in the Italian country side on a relaxing wine tour.

We rated the Bottega Veneta Sample Sale a 6 out of 10. There was really great pricing on tops, skirts and dresses but a lot of the merchandise was tainted, ripped or stained. There was very limited merchandise in smaller sizes. The selection for men’s was really great! To score Bottega Veneta for 80% is such an amazing deal and very rare! Make sure to get downtown to check it out!
