Club Monaco Sample Sale

UPDATE: I went by the sale this morning and I was the first one there! YES!!! actually in all my sample sale shopping that's never happened before :) Anyways I was a bit disappointed as I didn't see any of those small sizes that people had previously mentioned. Most everything is sample size meaning a size 6 or 8 for women and a S or M for men. Yes, I was shopping the men's section but didn't find any cozy grandpa style cardigans for myself.

Thanks to a reader who kindly commented we do know that they slashed prices further today to starting from $2 and item! To see what I bought I actually ended up wearing it today :) To note, no fitting room and no mirrors! You are blind guessing so it's a bit of a challenge but prices are great. Make sure you thoroughly check everything as things have some weird holes. Most of the items are one offs and it's hard to see what's all there as it's mostly folded on tables and in boxes and on very very crammed racks. Lots of items to sort through to find your winners. As previously mentioned the sale wasn't too crowded and kept to under 30 pple at a time.

UPDATED PRICE LIST (thank you anonymous reader you are AWSOME!): Rings, bracelets were $2, necklaces $5, belts/gloves/scarves $2, blazers/coats $15, dresses $10, skirts/button downs/tops $6, sweaters/pants $12

So the truth is my friend Tom told me about this sale about a week ago but I almost forgot about it until early this morning. I actually hauled my way over to the way west side first thing this morning but by the time I got there, the massive line that did not move had me waiting for 30 minutes only to move about 10 feet so I had to leave and get to the office.

I did manage to get the scoop from some of the sale goers:
There is quite a lot of merch but there is also alot of damaged goods too and they are thrown into boxes so digging is required. However, everything is really well priced with shorts and shirts from $5 to 10. Dresses for $15. Belts and Jewelry from $5. Everyone I saw leaving seemed to have paper bags with multiple items. Be warned though the line is slow and they apparently only let about 30 people into the sale at a time so although as a shopper I'm sure it controls chaos it holds up a lot of people too. There are some small sizes available in 2s? Not sure about other sizes but apparently normally what they have is mediums. One girl shared she bought her whole summer wardrobe for $60 including 2 shorts, 2 shirts, 1 dress and some other accessories!

I may try again tomorrow...but not sure if I have it in me to get up and wait again.

Haha I'm thinking of going back just for some more accessories. There weren't many small sizes left - but at least in the skirts, they still fit really well. Rings, bracelets were $2, necklaces $5, belts/gloves/scarves $2, blazers/coats $15, dresses $10, skirts/button downs/tops $6, sweaters/pants $12 is the full price list now

totally the accessories alone would make the trip worth it! I got a million compliments on the necklace I bought today :) The prices sound so great that I almost would feel ripped off had it not been pretty great prices already! thanks for the deets!

I heard there were going to throw their merchandise away if everything is not sold, any idea if they will hold another sample sale soon? Has there been any in the past?

Erin said...

Wow, I certainly hope they don't throw their merch away! that would be terrible. I do know they have had sales in the past but they are extremely private about them. I'll keep you posted if I hear of anything but haven't heard of anything in the near future.
