The Marc Jacobs sample sale opens to the public today (Tuesday). Great news for shoppers looking for deals. The markdowns are good this season and there’s plenty of merchandise (from past seasons, including Resort 2015 and 2016), especially for women. The discounts start at 80% off retail and top out at 90%. 

Let’s start with accessories since that’s what this shopper is always looking for. Marc Jacobs mainline handbags are all 90% off and can be found displayed on shelves near the register. Same discount for wallets and scarves which can be found by the register. Handbag choices include large shoulder bags, minis and cross-bodies, duffle bags and other small accessories. Pricing for many of the bags is around $150-$250 after the discount. Wallets are around $45 after the discount.

No shoes for adults, just a few kids downstairs which is where you’ll find the Marc by Marc Jacobs children’s wear and accessories (bags, wallets, belts, etc) – all at 80% off retail. Many of the kids clothing are under $20 after the discount.

The apparel appears to be overstock from previous seasons. Clothing hang on racks throughout the main space – men on one side and women’s are on racks throughout the space. There’s definitely more women’s stuff than men’s and a lot more fall items than spring. MJ main collection clothing is 90% off retail, Marc by Marc Jacobs is 85% off retail. Pricing examples include blouses for around $60-$70. Other pieces are marked down to $100-$200. One coats that many shoppers were eyeing (sparkly and bejeweled) were $4,900 retail so $490 on sale.

This sale tends to be mobbed. While we attended the preview, expect today’s opening to draw a large crowd with long lines. Click here to our Calendar Page to get location/date/time details to this sale.
