Making A French Connection

Thursday, June 23, 2016

French Connection is in the midst of hosting their semi-annual sample sale and nothing is over $30! The two day event is taking place inside the company's Garment District showroom where shoppers will be delighted to find summer ready looks for women and men at bargainista friendly prices. Some of you may know that I've been sidelined with health issues this entire week and thus unable to attend any sample sales. Luckily the O.G. sample sale-er herself, aka my mom, went on a reconnaissance mission and here's her scoop!

She arrived at the showroom just after lunchtime and noticed that initial markdowns had already begun. Everything was priced $30 or less with the most "expensive" items being dresses, jumpsuits, and shoes. Prices started as low as $5 for accessories like belts, scarves, tights, socks, jewelry, keychains, and underwear. Everything else fell into $10-$20 range. Please consult the pricelist photo below for more details. I also linked up some style examples. The sale boasted a plethora of heatwave friendly tees ($10), t-shirt dresses ($15), shorts ($15), sun hats ($8), and sandals ($30). There were also lightweight sweaters, pullovers, shirts, as well as party ready sequined embellished frocks and menswear. Among accessories, belts offered some pretty hefty discounts. My mom picked up several belts that retail for $135-$175 for just $5! In fact if you were to look at the price tags you'd realize that many items were discounted well over 90% off retail. Some of these items are currently selling online and at department stores for full price but here you can get them for 80% - 90% off. Certain merchandise was a bit dated and went as far back as 4-5 seasons ago but at such low prices do we really care? Sizes ranged from 0 to 12. There was no dressing room, only a mirror so be sure to dress accordingly. Its likely that there might be even more discounts tomorrow but don't wait too long! Now let's take a moment to thank my mom for playing reporter for a day :) Happy shopping and hope you all score some mega deals!
