SAMPLE SALES 🌼🌸🌺 for April: Updated Sonia Rykiel

Spring is in the air (or at least it should be) and we couldn't be more excited to start planning for the warmer weather. New sandals, lightweight dresses and lots of rosé, of course. We aren't quite ready to start pulling out the bikinis but long weekends will be here before you know it.

We've exclusively listed only the sample sales that we would personally consider attending. The post will continue to be updated throughout the month and remain just a click away in the right sidebar. Below is a list of what we believe to be April's best sample sales. Feel free to leave feedback in the comments section so that everyone can benefit.





Jimmy Choo Sample Sale
The Jimmy Choo sale is legendary for the VERY long line and its discount prices. Basic pumps and sandals are usually $200, booties are $325 and boots are $375. Women's shoes run from size 35 to 42 and men's go from 43 to 46. At the last sale, men's shoes were priced at $250 or $375 and included loafers, Oxfords, driving shoe and ankle boots.

Dion Lee
The Australian fashion designer is opening her showroom and offering discounts that you won't want to miss. At the last sale, prices ranged from $40 to $150. There was a large assortment of the designer's high-quality print dresses, skirts, and knits. If you're looking for a real sample sale experience, this is the sale to attend.
Wednesday, April 3 through Friday, April 5
10am-7pm daily
401 Broadway, Suite 1910

Marc Jacobs Sample Sale
What has become of Marc Jacobs? So much talent, yet the label seems to be in hibernation. Nothing in fashion stays the same and it's only a matter of time until this sleeping bear wakes. For now, you can fancy yourself as a collector and snag huge discounts from the Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs collections.
Wednesday, April 3 through Sunday, April 7
Wed 9am-8pm, Thurs 10am-7pm, Fri to Sat 10am-8pm, Sun 8am-5pm

Sonia Rykiel
We are so excited that Sonia Rykiel is hosting a sample sale starting Sunday. We can't remember any prior sales from the French designer. We are told that this will be a "real" sample sale with excellent prices. There will be a selection of children's clothing for women and children. This sale is only two days but we are hoping it will be successful enough to become a reoccurring event.
Sunday, April 7 & Monday, April 8
Sun 11am-6pm, Mon 10am-6pm
5 East 57th Street, 14th Fl (btwn 5th & Madison)

Lanvin Showroom Sale
We always love the Lanvin sale because the discounts are great and there is always some prize to take home. (We even spotted some Elbaz items.) Dresses are reduced 90% off retail, bags are 70% off and all other items are discounted 80%. The other reason we appreciate this sale for the great selection for men.

Thursday, April 8 and Wednesday, April 10
9am-6:30pm

Phillip Lim Sample Sale
This sale is always very popular but as the designer wanes in popularity, there seems to be less of a draw. At last sale we attended large Pashlis were $300, minis were $200, the 31 Hour tote bag, Soleil bucket bags, and Biancas were $200. All other bag styles were $150. All shoes were $100. Shirts were $120 or $150 for embroidered options, pants, jeans and shorts were $75 and dresses ranged from $175 to $450 and outerwear ran for $175 to $500 for leather and fur options.

I was underwhelmed by the selection at Dion Lee. I love the line, and was expecting more. There were actual samples, some unfinished, no labels, and really just a spotty selection of random styles. Not many small sizes. Pricing was high, based on foregoing.

Hi. Thanks for reaching out. I was there too and didn't have the same sentiment. Yes, there were lots of actual samples and unfinished items but the prices were pretty incredible. I don't think $150 for a Dion Lee dress is high. I think the spotty selection is what you get during a real sample sale. I think many people have become jaded from the fully stocked "overstock sales" run by larger companies. Personally, I enjoyed Dion Lee. Xx
