Sure, rushing over to a sample sale and being the first in line at a sample sale has its benefits. If all goes well, you can cherry pick and you are rewarded with some amazing discounts. But sometimes being one of the firsts also means that you can shop the sample sale before it sells out in basically an hour after opening. It doesn’t happen very often but it did happen with the Olivia von Halle sample sale.
If you’ve been a fan of Olivia von Halle’s designs you know that they come with quite a price tag. But not at the sample sale. Those fabulous robes which will normally set you back a couple of hundred pounds were steeply reduced to £40 (short robes) and £50 (long robes). Not to mention her silk trouser sets which were now just £25. True bargains I would say.
No wonder that fashion and sample sale lovers flocked over to the Olivia von Halle sample sale on 7 December. So did special reporter Andrea Povah.
Despite being at the sample sale one hour after it had opened she was greeted to empty bins except for two lonely bins which each had only one item left. Imagine the disappointment…
The lucky ones who arrived early, raided all the bins and given the sample sale prices they must have left with bags full of those coveted Olivia von Halle items.
So for any future Olivia von Halle sample sale make sure you arrive way early and be one of the first in line, because you might make the track for nothing.
Wondering what the prices were? See the below photos.
