We got early access to the Veronica Beard sample sale, which opens later this week, and we're so glad we got a sneak peek because this sale is definitely worth going to. It's held in the brand's showroom, so the space is pretty small and the stock isn't extensive, but you'll find current and past season items for up to 65 percent off, as well as samples—most of which are under $100.

The spring collection items are definitely the draw of this sale, and everything is reasonably priced. We found summery eyelet dresses for $138 (normally $595), shorts for $123 (from $350), light blazers for $243 marked down from $695, and lacy tops for $138 (normally $395).

The small selection of past-season stock is from the label's most recent resort collection. Leather midi skirts are $348 (down from $995), while drop-shoulder work blouses are $149 (were $425), and breezy color-blocked trousers are cut from $475 to $166.

The samples start at $50, and we found both current and past season items. This section is definitely worth devoting time to, because most of the garments clock in at under $100 and we didn't notice any damages or defects. Our favorite finds included loose-fitting tropical print shorts for $75, cotton-lined rain jackets for $100, and printed shift dresses, also for $100. The most expensive sample we found was a perforated leather cap-sleeved vest for $175.

Sizes range from 0 to 12, and the staff may have more sizes in the back, so be sure to ask if you can't find something in your size. There is a fitting room set up in the showroom, and although there won't be any more markdowns, items will be restocked.

We'd definitely recommend getting there sooner rather than later, because the amazing prices and super-wearable pieces will probably sell out quickly. The sale officially opens tomorrow morning, May 14th, at 26 West 17th St. Check out the gallery above for shots of some of our favorite finds, and head over to the dealfeed for time info.—Gillian Fuller
