*SAMPLE SALE* Marc Jacobs

Guess what?! Just as its LVMH sibling brand, Céline, hosted a private sample sale last week, Marc Jacobs is following suit and currently having a sub rosa sample sale at Clothingline. The sale started yesterday and is scheduled to end tomorrow. As you may already guessed, the sale is only opened to company employees and invited guests. But just in case you're desperately seeking the brand's RTW and accessories at significant markdowns, Marc manias should try their luck and drop by tomorrow afternoon. Who knows? The staff may have a moment of kindness and open the sale to the public just before the sale closes. Here's to hopeful thinking!

Where: 261 W. 36th St. (bet. 7th & 8th Ave.), 2nd Floor

When: Monday, September 30th through Wednesday, October 2nd.

UPDATE: A fellow Mizhattanite emailed me yesterday letting me know that she tried to sneak into the sample sale. She informed me that there was an employee at the door who asked to see an invite. She was told by this Marc Jacobs employee that even if her name wasn't on their guest list, as long as she presented an invite that had been forwarded by someone, she would be allowed in. Since there are many of you who are trying to get in, here's my copy of what you'll need. Hope this helps! Best of luck and happy shopping!!

  1. So tempting. After many years of devotedly attending Clothingline sales, the staff do know me . . . .

  2. I went last year and they did not enforce the "invite only" policy at all. However, this year is pretty strict. I got in, but only because of the invite (and only on the second day, which is today). They ask for ID's and everything. All I could say is this sample sale is a good one.

    2. Only allowed 5 small leather goods and 3 handbags, so I purchased a wallet, 2 clutches and a cross-body! I am planning on going back this afternoon to see if they reduce any further... LMK if you hear! thanks for all your knowledge and keeping us in the loop!

  5. Hey everyone,

    Some updates. They obviously changed the door policy this morning. They WON'T let you in with just the printed invite. You would need to show an actual email from a LVMH/Marc Jacobs employee with the invite or a LVMH or Marc Jacobs employee ID.

    I was there yesterday. All bags are 60% off. Decent selection of Stams, Fultons, and Baroques. Ready to wear are 90% off. Runway pieces are $250 for dresses and $70 for pants and skirts. Shoes are either $65 or $45. Tons of merchandise, but the stock was disappearing fast. Little MJ pieces are 70% off.

  6. this is by INVITE ONLY with original email from an employee. There was a group of 10 women and they did not want our business. I find that very stupid. On top of that being a bummer, the women that was checking for this ORIGINAL email was very RUDE & NASTY.

    1. I'm sorry to hear you were treated that way. Hope you're not too upset.

    2. Why would you try to get in with 10 people to an invite only sale? They might let a couple people by but not 10.

  7. I tried to get in the sale about 1pm today and I said tried because I didn't get in without the email. I have to admit the Marc Jacobs employee was nice about it, but she just was not letting anyone in without the email. There were about 10 women there giving the Marc Jacobs employee such a hard time. I felt bad for her and bad for me since I didn't get in. My girlfriend, who works for Marc Jacobs in out on maternity leave. I wish the baby would have waited another week. SMILE

  8. I was able to get in but I think it was because the MJ employee went on break. The only person in front was a Clothingline employee.

  9. What were the reduced prices?

  10. Still a ton of bags, clothes are getting pretty picked over but there's still a lot of stuff especially if you're a 4!

    They keep replenishing the SHOES which are AMAZING - insane collection stuff that I've never seen.

    They are still checking for emails at the door but let me in with 3 extra people on a forwarded email.

  11. i was pretty lucky that i got in as a +2 (didn't have the forwarded email but chatted up to a nice lady that had the original invite that took me in). I was told by the reps there that they'll extend the sale for another day (Thursday). Just fyi for the ones that still want to give it a try tomorrow.

    I had no luck and the MJ employee was rude and nasty :(

  19. Just came back. I only had the portion of the invite posted above but I had a story ready to go of where I got the original email from. You have to be confident and have your story straight. I went for shoes and the prices are seriously nuts. 65 for MJ and 45 for M by MJ. Clothes are pretty undesirable. Still 60 pct off for bags and wallets.
