*SAMPLE SALE* Ralph Lauren Private Employee Sale

Fact: Classic American lifestyle brand Ralph Lauren hosts private employee sales bi-annually at Soiffer Haskin. Unsurprisingly, from what I've been told by many sale-goers who attended this event in the past, markdowns and inventory are a whole lot better than what's on offer at the company's public sample sales. This week, I received an invite to this spring's event and I thought I'd share the details with my fellow Mizhattanites; in case you know someone inside the company who can lend you a favor. The sale, which starts on April 28th, will have a strict door policy and you'll need to have a shopping pass from a Ralph Lauren employee. And, despite it being an exclusive affair, keep in mind that the sale draws enormous crowds. Since the event is more than two weeks away, maybe you can use the time wisely to try and find your shopping savior inside the company or sharpen your haggling skills.

Where: 317 W. 33rd St. (near 8th Ave.)

When: Tuesday, April 28th, 8am~7pm (Employees only)
Wednesday, April 29th, 9am~6pm (Employees and F&F)
Thursday, April 30th, 9am~5pm (Employees and F&F)

  1. Thanks for info, Miz. May I ask what kind of discounts can we expect from this private sale? I'm only looking for men's work apparels from their main line (not Purple or Black label). Also, do they have home goods there like frames or vases? I need gifts for wedding season. Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Sarah,

      Menswear is usually abundant at their employee sale. Ties start as low as $10-15. Dress shirt as low as $20. I don't believe they have home goods but Ralph Lauren does host a separate home goods sale.

    1. I went yesterday and in my opinion it's pretty picked over. Shoes, and dresses are only available in sample sizes. (Dresses size 8, men's shoes size 9, women's shoes size 6 and 9.) Boxes line up the center of the space and you have to dig for tops, shorts, pants, and linen/towels.
