Make it to MACKAGE

By: Eve Orbach

Hello loyal readers! Now this is one I’m sure we were all very excited for: the MACKAGE sale is finally here! 

MACKAGE has coats, accessories, and clothing for all. The markdowns for each item vary but overall there are definitely some good deals and steals. Coats are available for women, men, and children come in a wide range of styles from bomber jackets to winter puffers. Accessories include wallets, bags, scarves, gloves, hats, and vests. MACKAGE dresses, pants, shorts, and skirts, are available in addition to SOIA & KYO blazers, cardigans, jackets, and accessories.

The best deals of the sale are definitely the accessories. Wallets start at $10, scarves and hats $40, and bags are going for $70. As for coats, price vary per item but there are some jackets that fell below the $200 price range! (But many, many, MANY, more that surpass $200) For a designer brand, I thought that the clothing was pretty well priced—dresses could be found for $160, pants for $100, and tops for $100. The SOIA & KYO pieces were generally on the pricier side but had still has some affordable priced accessories. 

It is organized by gender and style and is hung up neatly on hangers. The people working the sale are very helpful and outgoing. 

All sales are final. Cash and credit card accepted. 

I give this sale a 6/10. All of the pieces are very fashionable, but for a sample sale I was not very impressed with the prices. However, the accessories were definitely on the more reasonable side and there are even some coats that aren’t priced too high. 

Finding outerwear for the winter can be a struggle, but in this case head over to the MACKAGE sample sale to try your luck at finding a warm, reliable, go-to winter coat!

All Lined Up for the Sam Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We know winter is coming and the need to stay warm is paramount. However, at the Sam sample sale, people were lined up in the cold just to snag fur-lined Sam coat. Crazy! Once you made it through the door, the room is filled with coats and vests for women and kids. If you love a good parka with fur this is the place to be. Find coats with just fur-lined hood or full fur lining. The brand reps did not allow us to report on pricing. What we can say is that items were about 40ish percent off. All inventory ranged from $129 to $999.

We rated the Sam sample sale an 8 out of 10. The line is long and the discount isn’t amazing. On the other hand, there was an abundance of merchandise available for shopping. There were multiple items in the same style. And even the kids had a large selection. Hey, if people are lining up and going crazy inside, they must be on to something. If you’re willing to brave the cold, head over to Meatpacking district and check it out for yourself. Happy shopping!

Just in Time for Fall: The White and Warren Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We can all agree this fall has been very temperamental. One day you’re in a winter coat, and the next you’re in a tee and a cardigan. Stock up for this crazy fall weather (and probably more to come) at the White and Warren sample sale. The White and Warren sample sale has the coziest cashmere clothing that will keep you warm on the chilly days but won’t suffocate you on the warm days. Their cashmere tees are perfect for layering on those in-between days. My favorite had to be the cashmere shirt and pant set. I swear, I will never leave my sofa with that on!

We rated the White and Warren sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. The merchandise was very cute! It was well stocked, but there wasn’t a ton in there. Two days should be good for this sale. They will be restocking the wraps/blankets, but it is unclear for other items. Additionally, the sale was pretty well priced. It was unclear what was a sample and what was stock, which in turn make the pricing a little hazy. Stock up on cozy cashmere tops, bottoms, sweaters, and accessories this fall! Happy shopping!

Move Over Canada Goose the Herno Sample is in Town

Herno Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The first Herno sample sale has hit the streets of Manhattan. Herno is a hot, up and coming Italian outerwear brand. You can find them right next to Canada Goose in Nordstrom. Now you can find them for 70% off in midtown. They had a large selection of both men’s and women’s coats, sweaters, and furs. At 70% off you can score a coat for a few hundred dollars.

The staff was incredibly sweet, and the space was great for shopping. However, you can expect long lines. They are also only accepting credit cards. Ditch your jacket from last year and head over to the Hanro sample sale for a new model. Winter is coming, and they are saying it’s going to be a cold one! Happy shopping!
