Sample Sale Report: Alice + Olivia 2013

2013-12-09 19.31.58I stopped by the Alice + Olivia sample sale last night during the VIP/Gilt City preview. If last night was any indication, this sale is going to be a popular one for women hoping to score that perfect Holiday outfit. I had to wait about 10 minutes to get inside the sale. As with all 260 Sample Sales there is mandatory coat and bag check.

As I shopped the sale, price lists were clearly posted above in multiple locations and priced by item type. Everything was neatly hung on rack upon rack of merchandise although the lines winding around the sale from the communal fitting room made it a little difficult to walk through the smaller size sections in particular. Sizes ranged from 0/XS to 10/12/Large. The largest assortment of merchandise could be found in sizes Small 2/4 and Medium 6/8. Large sizes had the smallest selection with only 6 racks.

The section of the sale that was by far the most popular was the sample section with most prices around $49, coats and leather for $99 and prices topping out at $119 for a sample gown. Sample sizes weren't listed but appeared to be a 2/4 for most part.
