YSL Sample Sale

The YSL sample sale is not one of our favorite because of the serious hoarding and unmanageable chaos. You wouldn't guess it but YSL customers are quite aggressive. If you're up for this sample sale challenge you will be highly rewarded with serious savings on classic and seasonal brand styles.


This year, the VIP preview -- Shhhhh!-- will start Monday morning and the sale will open to the public on Tuesday. There is a tightly guarded list on Monday, but there usually isn't a line to enter and the shopping atmosphere is much more civilized.

 Last season, we shopped the VIP preview and found most shoes priced at $200 but Tributes and Trib Twos were $350. Bags were priced between $200 and $800. YSL muses were $700 and Muse Twos and Downtowns were $300. Jewelry was just $50 and all clothing was priced between $50 for a tee to $600 for a coat.

If you're up for a classic New York sample sale, than this is the place for you. If you prefer a more civilized discount shopping environment, we suggest that you call Woodbury.

Solicite the help of your YSL sales person perhaps?

Or become friends with the people that work there. They let all their friends cut the lines and hold items for them.

Can't remember all price info (they made you check in cell phones so couldn't take photo of price list), but stock/prices seemed similar to last year's sale. From what I remember: $300 dresses, $150 pants, $100 tops, $200 shoes except Tributes, which are higher, $50 rings, $75 sunglasses, $50 for really old season pieces if you find any. I didn't look at bags, but 3 limit. A checkout guy said they might restock on Wednesday morning.
