Sample Sale Report: Beirn
I stopped by the Beirn Sample Sale in Midtown today since I was in the area to discover a rainbow of watersnake accessories. At this point in the sale a lot of merchandise has sold out already leaving a smaller selection. The sale was quiet, well lit with a friendly sales girl helpful to provide any prices that aren't already indicated.
The belts above are about $45 for the tie tassel belts and $60-65 for the wide belts.
There was a small selection of the popular Jenna tote for $150, which usually retails for $450+. My personal favorite was the olive green colored version.
The Erica tote which is listed at $325 (but is $199 on Amazon) is now just $75. The fuschia color and striped snake was particularly pretty. The Ruthie which was $475 (but is marked down to $213 at Bergdorfs) is just $130 at the sample sale. Clutches are now going for about 1/3 of the original retail price but there are only 3 left.
Important to note some pieces are actual one-off samples and never went into production including the watersnake make-up case with watersnake trim that is being sold at cost ($75).
If you are looking for a large tote in colorful watersnake you can still find some options great prices but note that the sale has already sold a lot of merchandise.
