*SAMPLE SALE* Le Tour de Lanvin

With no fair warning, longstanding Parisian luxury house Lanvin returned to the sample sale scene with their spring private event. Even though this scoop appeared out of the blue on my sale radar--since last year's Lanvin sample sale had such incredible discounts and a stunning selection of goods--there was no way I was going to let this one slip away because of a late notice. Therefore, I put all of my day's agenda aside and made this priority #1. So, let's take a tour of Alber Elbaz's exquisitely glamorous designs.

First of all, I'm sure many of you are wondering how strict the sale's door policy is. Although security was noticeably stricter than at the last event, I definitely witnessed a few shoppers getting in without their names being checked. Honestly, if you can head over quickly enough to beat the afternoon/early evening crowd and make sure to look confident/act like you belong, then you might have a chance to get in without an invite (knock on wood!).

Now, let's get on with the review. Just like last autumn's sale, everything was marked down 80% off. Unfortunately, it's with resignation that I report there were hardly any handbags to be seen--a stark contrast to last October. However, the selection of Ready-to-Wear, shoes, and jewelry were significantly better than at the previous event. The womenswear section was largely comprised of fancy evening-appropriate dresses and gorgeous separates. Alber Elbaz's signature silk-satin one-shoulder dress in nude, for instance, was priced $700 while a shimmery evening blazer was $640. I also spotted a silk draped top for $4,350, a sequined cocktail frock for $1,300, a scalloped jersey dress for $680, a lightweight cashmere bolero for $250, and a sleeveless faille dress for $742. As for sizes, the discounted RTW was available in 36~46 while shirts were XS~XL. At a passing glance, I also spotted a small selection of swimwear with colorful items in sizes 1~4.

Neatly stack on the floor and on shelves were Lanvin's iconic ballet flats in several different styles of basic leather, glossy patent, shimmery metallic, and animal skin. Shoes were all 80% off and sizes ranged from 36 to 42. Basic leathers and glossy patents were going for $100. In addition to the flats, I was able to find brocade bow pumps, snakeskin loafers, cap-toe platform pumps, sling-back wedges, and pee-toe pumps.

The jewelry section was definitely the shining and shimmering statement at today's sale--figuratively and literally. There were boxes upon boxes of bib necklaces, embellished cuffs, cocktail rings, oversized drop earrings, and large chain pendant necklaces placed on top of a large center table. Prices on necklaces ranged from $200 to $600 while earrings were $120 to $350.

Menswear was situated on the opposite side of the modestly-sized sale space and there were some bargains to be had on these racks. Lucas Ossendrijver-designed tailored jackets, dress shirts, trousers, lightweight coats, bowties, neckties, cufflinks, and shoes were all 80% off. Dress shirts were available in sizes 36~46, pants in sizes 46~56, jackets in sizes 46~56, and t-shirts in sizes XS~XL. Like the women, footwear were placed in their respective boxes and stacked below the racks of clothes. Sizes ranged from 42~47. And finally, there was a healthy collection of ties and bowties on top of two tables. I spotted neckties and bowties (knitted silk and silk-satin versions) in a range of colors and they were priced $25-$40.

This week's Lanvin sample sale runs until Thursday. If you decide to swing by, feel free to share your experience by dropping a line in the comment section below.

  1. In case anyone is wondering, they are being very strict with the list and if your name is not on the list, and you can't also name the person who invited you, they will.not let you in.

  2. don't waste your time people, they are NOT letting anyone in unless he/she has an invite from someone at Lanvin corporate. They ask for first and last name of both you and your corporate reference and there is a lady with a laptop there checking your info. There is NO WAY to sneak into the sale as it is on the 9th floor, tiny lobby, elevator opens, lady is standing there with laptop, then a tiny hallway that leads into the sale. It is impossible to get in without an invite and whomever says otherwise is absolutely full of it.

    I love mizhattan, but I don't understand how she saw people sneak in without getting checked.... I know saying that might make people more interested in the article and photos, etc, but it's a huge waste of time for some of us that actually went all the say up to the 9th circle of hell (midtown) and tried to get in the sale.

    1. Sorry to hear you made the long trip but couldn't get in. When I was there, there wasn't a lady with a laptop like you mentioned. In fact, there was no one in the hallway.

  3. Mizhattan needs to stop advertising private sales. This is a waste of time and I tried EVERYTHING at the door without luck. Don't waste your time people!

  4. I don't see the problem with Miz posting private sales. Anecdotally speaking I have personally snuck into three personae non gratae sales because of what I read here. Just because you guys don't have the know how to get into these sales doesn't give you the right to put her down. I bet all of you reaped some type of reward because of her. Stop hating and be grateful.

    Thank you Miz for all your no nonsense hard work!

    1. Absolutely agreed. I love reading all of Mizhattan's review, even the private sales. She does so in such a humble fashion. She doesn't brag, she reviews the sale as fairly as she would have with any other sales. There's no need to be rude and nasty. It takes time to actually take the pics, uploading, them, and then write a review.

      Delete
    2. This x1000000. We should give miz more credit instead of criticizing her. Just think of the time and effort it takes for one of her reviews. I freelance write from time to time and you can't imagine the work it takes to create a single writeup.

      Delete
    3. All of you anonymous Einsteins, It's not the writing of the review of a private sale that is the problem. It's telling people/insinuating that they can get in to the sale when they most definitely cannot. This doesn't mean Miz is a bad person or doesn't work hard, it means this wasn't the most considerate thing to do for her readership. Please give Miz some credit. I'm pretty sure that she would actually want feedback from her readers and to know how they feel. I'm surprised she hasn't updated this post to reflect that this is a 100% private sale and that no one has gotten in without an invite.

      Delete
    4. She most definitely did state that this was a private sale. She does so with each and every review that were private. I believe that there will always be people who can charm their way in. Echoing the sentiments of the abundance of naysayers, your statement is also without proof. Proof works both ways. So in the end, it is up to us to believe if people were actually able to get in or not without an invite. However, all readers can choose to read or not to read an article. As for people like myself and others, we do enjoy reading these sales, even if we can't enter them. But the negativity may cause Mizhattan to think twice before posting these articles, which will deprive all of us the pleasure of reading these reviews. That would be most unfortunate for all of us.

  5. If Miz stopped writing I think we would all be singing a different tune. I found this blog through another site and now I come daily so I don't miss her reviews. I love fashion and shopping as much as the next gal but as someone who is two months into my first job I can't always afford to go... So Miz's reports are a way for me to get some secondhand satisfaction. Sometimes its nice to be in the know... Does anyone know what I mean?

  9. I was able to get in at 2:30PM without an invite. Walked away with a pair of flats I always wanted but didn't want to pay $495. Thanks Miz again for the always timely and thorough review. Ignore the negativities! You know how much we appreciate your time and effort!

    1. Yea I was trying to get in at 2:30 PM and there's no way in hell you got in without an invite. Sorry to call you out, but don't want anyone to waste time thinking they have a chance.... Saying you can get into this sale without an invite, is like saying you can go shopping anytime for free in your nextdoor neighbor's closet. If you have an invisibility cloak and the power to pass through walls and other people, then yes, it's possible. Otherwise, unless you want to be escorted out of the building my security, I'd steer clear of it.

  10. Miz, thank you for all your reviews. We should all appreciate what Miz is doing for us. Even if we can't get into some of the sales, it's still interesting to read what was available/what the prices where like, etc. at those sales. I think Miz is doing a great job and I would hate to see her stop just because some people couldn't get in. I was busy yesterday and did not even try, but nevertheless I enjoyed reading about the sale. Actually the more private the sale is, the more interesting it to read about it. So please Miz, continue doing what you are doing so well:)!

  11. Thank you Miz for the review. As someone who's successfully snuck into a private sale in the past - the experience was very nerve-racking and stressful. I wouldn't do it again, but doesn't mean others shouldn't try. Nor does it mean I do not enjoy reading the reviews and knowing what's going on. I don't think above posters mean to be critical of Miz - we ALL greatly appreciate her work. I think they were just frustrated. End of conversation.

  12. Does anybody know if they open the doors to the public at the end of the sale? Do they want to get rid of merchandise or is it more about the exclusivity of the sale?

  13. I was just turned away (so embarrassing!!) they said that it's not a sample sale but private event... what a waste of time!

  14. I GOT IN!!!!!!!!! No one manning the entrance at 9:15 so I managed to slip in. Maybe b/c second day. Plenty of merch left: dressy gowns, shoes and costume jewelry. One alligator (?) bag on shelf but expensive. No dressing room just a open area. Thank you Miz :-D and forget the naysayers. If you hadn't posted this scoop I would have never known. Keep up the excellent invaluable work and continue to keep us in the loop.

    1. OMFG I GOT IN TOO! Wasn't it awesome? It was the best sale ever and I bought everything that I've ever wanted for like super cheap!!! Also, isn't it cool how we can say we got in when there's no way in hell that we did? BRB going to go look at the pics and come write a general description like "dressy gowns, shoes and costume jewelry" so people believe me ...

    2. -Sigh-

      Your sarcasm is not appreciated. Did Miz mention the no dressing room???? Did she mention the one bag???

      And because I have the balls to back it up: http://i.imgur.com/7xExyLk.jpg

      If you want more proof, just say so and I'll be more than happy to shut your smug mouth.

    3. omfg so cool, let me go find some ziplock bags and put my tj max napkins in them and prove to everyone that I got in....

      You're the "effin" idiot. The people posting about not getting in were doing so to let others know to not waste their time. Your posts are pure narcissism. OK, let's celebrate your victory... you got in, bought ugly napkins or gauche pantyliners or whatever the hell are in those clear trash bags and now you have proven to everyone that you are able to e-sigh.

  15. These negative comments are so annoying! Ok, so you did not get in, so what? I still want to read all of the reviews. In fact, I know that many people who do not even live in NY read Mizhattan. What is your problem, people? If you don't feel like you can get in, o't even bother going, but don't ruin it for everyone else.

  16. Get real people. When you take the time out of your day hoping to get in a private sample sale because you read there's possibility of getting in but then turns out it is super difficult and embarrassing to get turned away. Of course you are gonna get mad and frustrated. I don't think those people are particularly mad at the blog for lying to them. they were just venting and expressing their frustration, which is understandable. not that I think it gives them the right to bash the blog. but it also doesn't give any other people the right to be mean towards people who expressed their frustration.
    you got in. that's great! lucky you. but you don't have to flaunt it and be all high school girls about it showing off to people who didn't get it. You got in by luck doesn't mean it is just that easy. My point is people y'all need to calm down.

    1. yea, being mean to people that are expressing their frustration is like screaming at a crying kid to be quiet instead of actually taking time to listen or notice why he/she is crying and empathize/help.

      BTW - I don't think anyone here bashed the blog or said Miz lied. Although it seems as though a few people might have gotten in today (not yesterday when the article was posted...), the article is clearly misleading, especially as it points out that earlier on in the sale would be the time to try to get in....

  17. Dear Fellow Mizhattanites,

    I am deeply saddened and absolutely flabbergasted at what I'm reading in this comment section. This palpable hate is deplorable and is in no way called for. I have mentioned time and time again how I would like Mizhattan to be a loving and caring community and resource for anyone who loves fashion and shopping. However, after reading this comment section and looking back at the comment section of the previous Lanvin sample sale, I can only say that your words and actions have left an indelible mark on me. There is absolutely no need for foul language or sarcasm on this website. If trolling is your only intention I ask that you leave.

    For those who made the trek to the sale but were turned away, I apologize for wasting your time and for the embarrassment you may have received.

    For those who were able to get in, congratulations on your hard fought battle--but I say so with a heavy heart.

    I will get to your comments individually at a later time but I would like to leave one question for all of you to answer.

    Would you like private sample sale articles to not be posted on Mizhattan any longer? There has been many instances (Jimmy Choo, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Louboutin, Bottega Veneta and so on) of private sales opening to the public as the sale progresses or of lucky individuals sneaking in. Would you like all this information to cease? As the spring sample sale season is now ramping up, these types of private events will pop up in my inbox and radar so let me know and I will strongly reconsider what articles are published on Mizhattan.

    1. Mizz... thank you but this is the second time you've posted about Lanvin and second time I got turned away. It was absolutely embarrassing and I think you should not post private sales on this blog. I came all the way from NJ and was not able to "sneak in". I appreciate your work but some events just should remain as "private"

      Delete
    2. I disagree. I think it is ok to have a sale listed as private (maybe with a warning label, "attempt to attend at your own risk"), but your information got me into Jimmy Choo and McCartney, etc. Please don't stop posting about private sample sales!

      Delete
    3. My two cents: keep posting. We are not infants, Mizhattan. We should take responsibility for our own decisions and actions. These people are just whiners. You always clearly write 'private' or 'best of luck' or something to that effect in your writing. Everything else that happens afterwards is burden each person must take for themselves. Cheer up and keep doing what you do best!

      Delete
    4. pls keep post for private sales. i was able to get in before. but that 's everybody's personal choice to go or not with a realistic expectation of a possibility not being able to get in.

      Delete
    5. As I said in my other posts, I love your reviews. I actually wanted to kick myself for not taking advantage of the Bottega Veneta sale when it opened to the public. I think everyone needs to be aware that this is a high risk/high reward type of deal. I agree with the poster above. The words "private" and "best of luck" should already serve as caveat. Again, we truly appreciate your hard work.

      Delete
    6. Please do not stop posting! There is nothing misleading about your articles on private sales and I thoroughly enjoy reading about them. Perhaps one day I will try my luck, but I haven't yet. Nonetheless, it is fun to read your articles and see what is going on out there. If people are taking time out from work or traveling from afar to attend "private sales," then they must assume the risk. At no point in time have I ever thought your posts were misleading with respect to these kinds of sales, and I'm rather baffled to see the whiny posts on here (perhaps they should read more carefully). Please continue to post, you are an amazing resource and one of my daily reads, particularly during sample sale season.

    7. Please continue posting everything, private and public sales. At the end, we should make our own choices and accept the outcome from it. Thanks again for your hard work. Know that we all appreciate it!

Everyone knows--or should realize--that they are taking a chance with "sneaking into" a private event ("private," "strict door policy" and "good luck" make this event's exclusivity perfectly clear). Please don't let some cranky commenters hurt you; you run the best NYC shopping blog there is!

    11. Please do continue to post. As lost of people working in midtown they can always *try* to check it out at lunch time or on their way to work. If it works - great, if not - it was fun reading about your finds! Thanks!!

    13. Hey Miz - I think you're amazing and I appreciate all of your hard work. Love hearing about the sales, private or not, because they provide a great reference point for prices and what's going on in the industry. Please keep doing what you do best and know that your loyal followers support you. No need to listen to the haters because there is more love for you than I think you realize!

    14. Geez Miz, I feel as though you are either overreacting or misunderstanding the comments here. You were flabbergasted and deeply saddened that your devoted fans gave you some constructive feedback? I am not sure where the "palpable hate" is in this thread (well besides that hateful person that put a picture of some cloth diapers in ziplock bags and called someone else an idiot). You posted about a private sale, which is totally fine, but then you said that you saw people slipping through security and that early in the sale it might be possible to do this. I don't know whether you saw anyone slip in or not (I tried to get in and I can't imagine how anyone would have slipped through on the first day), but your advice about getting in early on this sale was incorrect. That's what people are angry about. The diaper lady got in on the second day supposedly, but the first day was a no go for everyone that tried. Moral of this story is: Embellishing the reviews and inspiring false hope in readers is going to frustrate some. If you aren't sure about something, either write it and prepare to apologize if things go wrong or just leave conjecture out of it. Having said all of this, I speak for everyone here and, of course, myself when I say that you're awesome and we love you. You should be proud that we care enough to give you feedback and to engage in discussions like this in the comment section. It's really something to read through this and think of all the people that gave some time out of their day to be a part of this conversation. It must feel cool to have created a community like this and have people looking to you for info, advice, guidance... :) xo

  18. Is it common for them to open doors to the public on the last day of the sale? Very wishful thinking on my part, I've been wanting a pair of their smoking slippers for some time now!

    Thanks for the report, please don't be disheartened by a few bad eggs.

  19. Keep posting the private events. It's not your fault these people choose to risk the embarrassment of being turned away. If you clearly write private event, it's up to them. You're not forcing them to go.

  21. Please keep posting private events and don't let a FEW disgruntled people who took a chance and got turned away stop you from posting informative information to us shoppers on a budget. As long as you clearly label them as private, then everybody knows they are taking a chance.

  22. I got in after befriending a nice woman in the elevator with an invite! They were still turning away people at the door. Purchased two nice cocktail dresses. Still some nice dresses left but no flats.

  23. Please keep posting them, Miz. The vast majority of us appreciate it, even if it is just to read and admire all the beautiful merchandise. As a previous poster mentioned, I too have a great wardrobe thanks to your very detailed and honest reports. You do have the best NYC shopping blog, just the way it is. Ignore the few loud crazies. Thank you for all you do in your own time, for absolutely no cost to us. We appreciate it.

  26. Please keep posting all sales, whether I go or not, they're great to hear about.
    To the people who get turned away, and are upset because " it's embarrassing"? Seriously?! You are going to a sample sale- some people would be embarrassed by that! You're embarrassed that some random stranger - whom you will probably never see again in your life- knows that you wanted to buy merchandise on sale?! Maybe you should buy yourself some confidence and self-esteem. Or, buy ALL your clothes full price and stop complaining! I have been turned away from many a sale, but I still keep going! Please, please please don't stop posting private sale

  27. Please keep posting ALL sales- public and private!
    I'm honestly confused by the angry comments. Does no one take responsibility for her actions anymore? Are you not an adult? Which part of "private sale" and "strict door policy" did you not understand? If you are stupid enough to take off from work, or travel long distances, knowing that you may not get in, then you have no one to blame but yourself. And to the people who were "embarrassed"- so you're not embarrassed to wait on a long line, and for everyone to see you on that?!?!

    4. Nothing is wrong with me. What's wrong with you??? MizhattAn asked a question and I gave my honest opinion. She should shove this blog because it goes against all acceptable decorum when you're given the priviledge/invite to these private sales. The brands trust you will keep it a secret and she is defiling that trust. She should know better if shes been private shopping for ages. And dont get me started on noninvitees...you should EARN your way in!!!

    5. Still not sure what you mean by EARN your way in. Miz is not the first and won't be the last to publish this kind of information online. She's just THE BEST! life isn't fair so get over this sense of entitlement you get from working in the industry. MIZ please don't let a few haters stop you!

    6. "unspoken rules in our circle?" The irony of you speaking about an unspoken rule while telling someone else in your "circle" (of apparently discount-desparate yet "affluent" people) to not speak about said unspoken rule is truly amazing. Not knowing how to spell Manhattan is icing on the cake. Thanks for the laughs. xo

  29. I think you should only post the private sale if they started letting in the public. It also isn't fair to the people invited to the private sale to have to wait on line because people not on the list are trying to get in. It's a waste of time for the rest of us. How about thinking about the rest of us WITH invites. I had a Lanvin invite and the hallway to get in isn't that big so to have a lot of people crammed in there is not fun.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. How about thinking about the freedom of speech? Miz can and should post whatever she wants about any subject whatsoever. What you are saying is preposterous. So you had to wait in the hallway for a few minutes, and what happened to you? If the people at the sale knew who you were they would have let you in first anyway. Can all those haters understand that this is just a sample sale. Just a sample sale, nothing else. This is not some private Vanity Fair Oscars party and not even a fashion show. This is just a sale. And by the way, even if you aren't invited to a Vanity Fair party, I am sure you wouldn't mind reading about it (who wore what, etc.) Miz has no reason at all to stop posting about these sales. This whole discussion is just shocking.

      Delete
  30. Are you serious? How do you think these companies make money? Not from the poor employees who can't afford the merchandise! But from these non-invitees who can actually afford the merchandise. Plus, if these companies were so upset by what Miz does, she would not be invited back to the sales- which she is!!!- because these companies want the publicity!!!
    And please don't invite me to your pity party because you had to wait on line for a sample sale
    Please Mizhattan , keep posting private sales!

  31. Miz, please keep posting about all kinds of sales. Many of these people are just upset that they aren't as creative and accomplished as you are. It is very difficult to have a successful blog and you have achieved that. People have made careers writing about the most private things. And these are just sample sales. You are not ruining anyone's life or wellbeing when you are posting about these sales. It is absolutely harmless. So please continue writing. and simply, the more you do it, the more readers you are going to get. Especially among those haters :)

  34. Dear Mizhattan,
    I've enjoyed reading your blog for years. Although I live at the other end of the world in Malaysia and have no chance of going to the sample sales (private or public) that you write about, I still love reading about them. Please continue covering private sale events. Maybe add a disclaimer after the posts. Anyway, if you decide to stop writing about private sale events, I respect your decision and will continue reading your blog. Thank you.

  35. I do not have much work to do today, so I was browsing through Miz's blog. Reading through almost the entire comments part, I am in shell shock that how shallow and ill-mannered people can be.

    It happens sometimes in life you get turned away, rejected, or feel embarrassed. Is not it a normal thing? Treat it as a setback and move on. For those people who came to the sale and found themselves wasting their time, it was your choices to test your luck. No one forced you into this. It is like you are making an investment in stocks. Stock market could go spirally down any minute after WSJ claims it could be a bull market. You need to blame yourself for the lack of judgement. Lastly, what Miz did was simply to offer a chance. For those whiny people, just work on getting yourself invited next time instead of blaming Miz.
