NOVEMBER SAMPLE SALES πŸ‚πŸ—πŸŒ½Mont Blanc Newly Added

The calendar has turned to November, which means sample sale shopping will hit a frenetic peak. It's a good thing because Thanksgiving and holiday parties are right around the corner. There is no better time to start collecting holiday gifts and adding some exciting pieces to your home and wardrobe. 

Below is a list of what we believe to be the best bargain bonanzas of the month. You can continue to check back here and we will add more sales and commentary. Feel free to ask questions, feedback and comments below. You can also follow along on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to get quick and immediate updates.


Global Fashions Friends & Family Sale
New merchandise and extra markdowns at this multi-designer sample sale, which includes a variety of designers. Highlights include M. Missoni, Naeem Khan, Red Valentino and Badgley Mischka. We spotted a pink Red Valentino dress with scalloped pockets that's just $120 from $595, a silk dress with a leaf print is $180 from almost $900, a leather dress (above) about $560 from $2795, work boots with a signature bow and heel are also $220 from $900.

S'well Sample Sale/Bandier
It wasn't until the Swell's last sample sale was ending that we realized that we needed bottles for camp. In a panic, a friend picked them up for us. We were instantly addicted and Swells have replaced our bottled water habit. Expect to find a large variety of bottles for $10 a piece from about $30. Stock up, after a while, they start to leak and the ones sent to camp picked up a 'lake smell.' For $10, you don't have to feel guilty about replacing them a few times a year. The Bandier sample sale shares the space. You can see last season's review right here

Yigal Azrouel
In an era of mega-produced sample sales it's nice to enjoy a traditional showroom sale. Yigal provides just that fix. This one day sample sale offers discounts of 80% off true sample sale stock and also offers open stock for highly reduced process. For example, a spring-like cable knit jersey dress will be $139 from $1190, a shearling will be $495 from $2990 and a sleeveless dress will be $139 from $1490.

11am-7pm
225 West 39th Street, 5th Floor

La Perla
We are always looking for sales with true samples. When it comes to lingerie it might be a bit more tricky. (What is a lingerie sample size anyway?) Those not born with the body of a Giselle, can still take advantage of discounts ranging from 80% to 95% off retail. We are told there there will also be bags and a full size range of shoes. Phew!
Friday, November 10 through Sunday, November 12
Fri 11am-6pm, Sat 10am-6pm, Sun 10am-5pm
32 East 57th Street, 6th Fl


Bulgari
Sometimes it's great to go big and the Bulgari sample sale happens to be a great resource for big purchases. We suggest going for watches, which can be the perfect combination of sporty and chic. Look for discounts of 60% off. Bulgari bags and glasses are also a big hit but make sure the discounts are reasonable. Lots of people like to stock up on fragrances and give them away as holiday gifts. We don't judge. Bulgari is Bulgari-- no matter where it's purchased.
Saturday, November 18 through Tuesday November 21
9:00am-6:30pm daily
Soiffer Haskin: 317 West 33rd Street

Mont Blanc
The Mont Blanc sample sale is always a readers' favorite. Most pens, watches, accessories and jewelry are discounted 50% to 60% off but discounts on less popular items go up to 80% off. The most popular and giftable items tend to go very quickly. Those attending the sale should expect a long line on opening day and shorter lines throughout the term of the sale. For some reason, there is always a wait for Mont Blanc.
Monday, November 20 through Wednesday, November 22
