Sample Sale Report: Rachel Roy

Stopped by the editors/employee preview earlier today for Rachel Roy collection and was greeted by a mad sample sale rush over lunch! There was a good selection of merch in sizes ranging from Size 2-10 but the sizes are generously cut and the petite girls around me were complaining. The sale was held in a well lit space and was very tidy. There was a separate change room with plenty of room to put your belongings but only 2 or 3 mirrors available.

So prices were 85% off retail meaning:

Sweaters for $125 (Only saw 3 jeweled ruffle neck cardigans)

Belts were $50 (about 10 or so on a bench)

Blouses were for most part $100-150, although there was a cute oversized roll sleeve shirt for $80. Lace blouse above $150, Lace Peplum Top $175.

Pants were $80 for most part and mostly in black, but the metallic leaf printed pants went up to $180.

Day dresses were $150-175 for most part, while cocktail dresses were $250-400. Most of the dresses I liked were around $150-250.

I think skirts were around 100? Mostly metallic boucle.
Finally, I had been rather excited after hearing that there would be actual samples! I was uber excited when I saw the $25 sign, but was quickly deterred when I realized that most of the samples were indeed true samples and therefore, cut and pinned and even marked. There was a nude tone satin dress that was rather cute but it had a dirt stain on the front.

Although prices were not super cheap, the merch was high quality and very sophisticated in general. Much of it looked more of occasion wear than everyday wear. Definitely worth a check out if you’re a fan of Rachel Roy or in the area, reasonable prices can be found but for rock bottom bargains, this is not your sale.
