With a relaxing ambiance inside today's Maje sample sale, I was able to inspect the goods in a calm and orderly fashion. The merchandise in the apparel section was organized by category and I found an abundant selection of t-shirts, blouses, embellished tops, shorts, jeans, pants, skirts, dresses, knits, leather jackets, tweed blazers, cardigans, and glittery vests. Sizes were available from T1-T3 (that's Maje talk for S-L). I'll also note that all of the sale inventory was in excellent condition. There was no wear to be found on any of the items as they appeared to be overstock goods straight from plastic wrappings.
While the sale selection was intriguing, sale prices were not. To prove my point, here are a few examples from the price list: t-shirts were $60, tops were $110, shorts and skirts were $95, jeans were $75, dresses were $150, sweaters were $125, blazers were $195, coats were $250, and leather jackets were $350. If you take a moment to compare today's sample sale prices to Maje's current online sale section, you'll find there isn't a huge difference in savings. In my view, this sale will best serve bargain shoppers who are looking for a discount on Maje's designs while having the opportunity to try them on.
Moving to shoes, the label's footwear collection was available in the back of the sale space. Thankfully, prices were a tad better here. Ballet flats were $95, pumps were $150, sandals were $150, sneakers were $150, and boots & booties were $195. Among these items, I saw a pair of black suede Fiesta pumps for $150 (online price: $255).
A limited selection of handbags were available near the checkout registers and there were sequin clutches, glittered clutches, and leather totes marked down to $150. Other items in the accessories section included $25 jewelry, $50 straw hats, $50 belts, and $50 scarves.
With Sandro also hosting their own spring bargain blowout next week, I smell a little sibling competition between these two hip Parisian brands. Let's just hope Sandro's prices are better than her sister's.
