This week, the Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet sample sale is taking place at two locations – Midtown & downtown. Fashionable Femme Jen checked out the one in Soho.
“As a fan of Alice & Olivia, but not of 260 Fifth Avenue Sample Sales, I opted to stop by the Greene St. sale location on my way home from work Tuesday evening. Racks upon racks of merchandise sorted by size hang neatly in rows, filling up the Soho store space. There is plenty to choose from and sizing across the board from a 0/XS to XL.
Highlights include the Adalyn Keyhole Maxi Dress (orig $368.00) for $129, the Elyse blazer (orig. $484) for $149 and a dress with that controversial yellow flower print for $129. There are blazers, shorts, tees, tanks, pants in all prints, lengths and colors. The selection overall was relatively fun. I don’t see any samples, which was a bit disappointing, though there are bins of knits and accessories in the back. There is also a table of shoes in sparkle, snakeskin and stripe. The purple tie dye scarves and belts are nothing to write home about. While the pricing isn’t bargain basement, the selection is pretty good for the 50%-70%discount, if you’re a fan of the brand.”
Pricing is as follows: Regular Samples $49, Embellished Samples $99, Tanks + Denim/Leggings $69, Sweaters + Pants $99, Embellished Leather Tops + Embellished/Leather Skirts/Shorts $99, Tops + Skirts/Shorts $79, Jackets $149, Regular Dresses $129, Jumpsuits/Rompers $139, Embellished/Embroidered Jackets $169, Embellished/Party/Leather Dresses and Gowns $199, Coats + Leather/Fur/Suede $299, Tall Boots + Ankle Boots $99, Heels $79, Flats $49.
