November 2017 Sample Sales

It’s the busiest month of the sample sale season and here I am computerless and dealing with iPhone woes so I apologize for the lack of posts. Nevertheless I’m doing my best to round up all of this month’s noteworthy sample sales and there are so many! This week alone is jam packed with sales from 3.1 Phillip Lim where you can score the coveted “Pashli” bag for just $200! Oh and shoes are only $100. L.K Bennett’s sample sale ends on Friday but markdowns just began and include an additional 50% off samples and shoes for only $20! Paul Smith Sale has been extended through Saturday and now offers extra 50% off first day sale prices. Great deals for men but not much for the ladies. Peter Thomas Roth and June Jacobs skincare sample sale is back with amazing savings of up to 90% off so get an early start on holiday shopping. This Friday, British fragrance house, Penhaligon’s makes their NYC debut at Metro Pavilion (they actually used to have sales 15+ years ago but no one besides me is old enough to remember lol). Gilt Warehouse Sale kicks off this Friday and although the VIP tickets are sold out you can go free on Sunday. I currently only listed sales for this week but will add more later (including Marc Jacobs). Best place for updates for now are my Instagram stories and Twitter. Happy Shopping!😘

Jimmy! Jimmy! The Train Is Arriving Next Week.

You know the drill ladies and gents! It’s that time of year when the Choo train is headed our way. Jimmy Choo sample sale will be back at Metropolitan Pavilion starting next Wednesday. The three day event is set to run through Friday and you can expect to find the usual assortment of women’s and men’s shoes, handbags, and accessories. I’m sure some of you know that the company was recently sold to Michael Kors but it doesn’t appear that this move will have any effect on the upcoming sale. You can expect the same prices as the May sample sale ($200-$375 shoes and $250-$459 bags) with additional markdowns on the last day. Meanwhile you can catch up on my older posts from past Jimmy Choo sales. To shop on Day 1 you can RSVP here using the invite code: Celeste.

Meet Frances Valentine And Her Deeply Discounted Accessories

You all know Kate Spade but how well do you know Kate Frances Spade? After selling her eponymous company back in 2006, Kate and Andy Spade embarked on a new venture. Founded in 2016 and dubbed, Frances Valentine, the new label embodies the same principles that made Kate Spade a household name back in the 90’s. Frances Valentine is about new beginnings and elegant yet quirky designs with a touch of preppy suburbia. Now that I’ve introduce you to Frances it’s time for some serious shopping and what better way to do so than at a sample sale. Now through Friday you can save as much as 90% off original sample footwear and bags while stock merchandise is discounted by up to 70% off retail. Oh and did I mention that prices start at just $25?

Hermes Sample Sale Heads To The Windy City

Hermes Sale window display

Happy October to all my fellow sample salers! The leaves are turning yellow, the air is getting crisper and you’re ready to break out your favorite cardigan and go pumpkin shopping. Although if you live in New York City you know that October is popular here for a few different reasons. Namely it’s multitude of high-end designer sales including the crème de la crème of them all, Hermès! Unfortunately I have some bad news for you. The brand has chosen to snub our fair city and forgo the annual ritual. According to Pursebop, who first broke the news back in early September, the sale is making a move to Chicago. Where there'll be consolidated merchandise from many major US boutiques and you can expect to find everything from the highly coveted silks to jewelry but of course no handbags. No word yet on exact discounts but I expect similar deals to the summer sale in San Francisco where everything was 50% off retail prices. The first day of the sale, Wednesday is invite only and is reserved for select VIP’s and F&F while Thursday is the start of the public portion of the event that will run through Sunday.

September Sample Sale Roundup

Its officially Fall and time flies before you can even blink an eye or at least that's how it feels for me. I know I've been MIA for most of the month, largely due to a lack of a computer. My trusty Mac Pro has sung it's last song and I've been relegated to either using my phone or a 10 year old Windows XP machine and as you can imagine neither is an ideal option (especially if you're familiar with blogger's Blogspot platform). Nevertheless I'm going to try my best to make up for these shortcomings and bring you the latest from the land of sample sales. Read on below for all of this week's must-shop events like Peach & Lily third annual sample sale, as well as Maje, Parker, Jessica Simpson, NY Charisma, and much more. As a bonus my next post with have all the major October sample sales and trust you wont' want to miss any of those events.
