We got a sneak peek this morning at the cozy showroom housing the Veronica Beard sample sale, which opened to the public at noon. There's just three racks of samples and eight racks of clothing from their recent fall collection, priced at up to 70% off retail tags. The price lists are posted clearly in front of each rack for your reference. Everything here is organized by styles, and although all sizes are available, sizes 4, 6, and 8 are the most plentiful.
On the sample racks, you'll find archival tops ($75), colorful bottoms ($65) and dresses ($125), as well as blazers ($150) and outerwear ($200). There are also wool cuffs for $15 and dickeys for $30. There are no size tags for samples, but most are a small or a size 4.
The pieces from the collections start at $150 for tops, while bottoms go for $175 and dresses are $250. Blazers, jackets, and all leather pieces (tops, bottoms, skirts) are $350. The price chart maxes out at $1,250 for a fur coat.
We loved this cotton combo parka for $350, which is currently available online for $650. Other items we found here that are full-price online right now include this peasant top for $150. We also thought the funnel neck driving leather jacket was super cute, but still a bit expensive at $750 (even though it's discounted from $1,695).
There is one communal dressing room in the corner of the showroom. We were told that they are expecting a shipment tonight for restocking tomorrow morning, and more samples will be included in that. The sale is only two days long—so if you're in the area, stop by earlier than later to snatch up the best pieces.
The sale is open today and tomorrow through 7pm; Check out the Dealfeed below for more information.—Hsini
