*SAMPLE SALE* Marc Jacobs

Once again, Marc Jacobs is discreetly hosting an invite-only sale at Clothingline. Just like their last sale in October, I've been informed there are lots of handbags, RTW, and shoes available at significant discounts. In addition, my source tells me the strict door policy has relaxed a bit as today is the last day of the sale. If you choose to drop by and try your luck, please share your experience with your fellow Mizhattanites in the comment section below. The sale ends at 7pm today.

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

When: Monday, April 28th through Wednesday, April 30th.

  2. Hi Miz-

    I went to the sale on Monday, when it was open for employee only. So this review is based on Monday.

    There's no RTW or shoes. This sale is only for handbags.
    All black bags/small leather goods are 70% off of retail price.
    All color/seasonal bags/small leather goods are 80% off.
    There are little bit of very old exotic bags that are $200 each, flat priced. But they look bit outdated. There are a lot of Stams, even in Croc, Ostrich, Snakes... I'm not much of MJ bag person so I can't remember other styles names. But it's worth to check if you love MJ handbags.

    To enter the sale, you need a physical print out of invitation email. It has to be a forwarded whole email from MJ or LVMH employee. There's no list of names.

    Good luck everyone!

  5. I went yesterday. Yes, this sample sale is handbags only. All black handbags are 70% off, while other handbags are 80% off (including the exotic handbags). There was a table of some "aged exotics" for a flat $200. Not the greatest variety seen before at the Marc Jacobs sample sale, but prices are really good. Also, there is a limit of 5 item per customer.

    The entry is pretty strict. There are 2 Marc Jacobs employees at the front door. You must present the forwarded email directly from a Marc Jacobs employee in order to enter. I gave away my copy to a lucky lady that really wanted to get in when I was leaving. Sorry.

    2. they were stricter this year. They were turning away people with forwarded email.

    3. Thank you. Since they are so strict, I don't think I will go. Plus, it is raining heavily!

    4. Yes, the invite says that only an email forward directly from a MJ employee is valid. If someone re-forwards it, the invite is void. It has to be the email forward, not a store posting.

  10. So I went there in this crazy rain and arrived at 5:20pm. The lady at the door told was giving a hard time for a lady in front of me. She had the copy of email, but she was asked to show her ID. The lady said the name on her ID and on email must match. So me (without the email) and her were not able to get in. I don't understand why so strict to get in. They had less than 2 hrs left for this sample sale.

    1. I feel like they really want their employees to buy MJ stuff, rather than selling stuff as more as possible.
