The Hanky Panky Sample Sale is Coming!

I was thinking to myself last week that I need to replenish my undies drawer with some more Hanky Panky everyday basics, and I made a mental note to look up when the next sample sale will be. My friend must have read my mind because two days later, she forwarded me this email: 


Yippeee!! And just in time for some holiday shopping if you want to get an early start on gifts for the ladies in your life too. I'll be there stocking up on some basics, so stay tuned for a sale report next month.

Only Hearts Sample Sale — Santa Monica, CA

I'm on vacation in sunny California (thank God, because the past five days of rain in NYC was pushing me to the edge), and as fate would have it, one of my favorite lines, Only Hearts is having a sample sale this weekend! When I got to the store, I was surprised to see brown paper in the windows and wondered if they were doing construction. Turns out, they turned the window displays into impromptu fitting rooms!

All the sale items have been moved to the front, and anything that's still full-priced is in the back and blocked off. This weekend is sample sale only, ladies! I'm really glad they did it this way because then there's no confusion at all as to what's on sale and what's not. There's shoes, accessories, jewelry in addition to the racks of camis, PJs, bralettes, and layerable dresses and skirts. Buckets of hipsters and briefs are organized by size and sit on top of shelves that house organic cotton pieces. 

If you're in the LA area, definitely stop by and check out the sale. Most of the boutiques on Montana Avenue are going to be having sales tomorrow, so make a day of it and see what else you can find!
The "fitting rooms"!

Adorable hairpin tray

Buckets o' bikinis! There are buckets o' hipsters too.

Organic cotton undies in heart-shaped baskets (of course!)

Colorful camis — can you spot the All Lace cropped cami? Marked down to $26 from $62!

Bralettes + bras!

 And dear readers, this is how I feel about you!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

But if you're in the NYC area Thursday May 19th & Friday May 20th, definitely check this out — and let me know if you find any cute swimsuits to wear Memorial Day Weekend!

Pretty Little Underthings favorite Eberjey was smart. Very smart. They scheduled their sample sale for après-Thanksgiving. This week has been a flurry of Araks, La Perla & Hanky Panky's sample sales, but in a few weeks, the attention will be on Eberjey. 

So for you lucky NYC-based readers, you have some time to set aside some funds in case there's something there you might want. The flyer below promises camis, briefs, babydolls, thongs, pajamas and swimwear at 50-70% off, so definitely stop by to see what you can scoop up. If not for yourself, then at least for your loved ones as a gift!

Notes from the Hanky Panky Sample Sale

I magically got out of work on time last night to make it to the VIP Hanky Panky sample sale and to meet a friend of mine who just got engaged last month (her ring is gorgeous, btw)! Some notes on what to expect today before you head over:

- coat & bag check is mandatory
- classic bottoms: low-rise, original, petite, bridal are all "to order". each style has color options up on the wall, you tell an associate which colors you'd like, they mark it off on a sheet and you go pick up your order over by checkout. it's actually pretty efficient and with so many colors available for the low-rise style, it's probably the most organized system they could have. think of it as a B&H photo/video experience, but with people, not robots.
- retro thongs are in one box. i saw a couple pink and some chai colored ones, but the box was mostly the bengal print.
- the majority of the bralettes and bottoms are $10 each. there were a couple boxes of purple-ish boyshorts for $3.
- color options for classic bralettes were much more varied in Mediums than x-small and small. didn't see boxes for bralettes in Large.
- lots of camisoles, a rack or two of bodysuits, and boxes upon boxes of boyshorts.
- checkout is pretty speedy. if you get any thongs from the wall, they bring them to you in a paper bag that the cashier opens, you can't. 
- they take all forms of payment (including discover card!), but pay in cash for the quickest checkout.
- there's a table of little gift boxes you can buy to place undies in as presents

If you have friends or family members who LOVE Hanky Panky and are always waiting for it to go on sale, definitely go to this sale and stock up for them as a holiday gift. They'll thank you.

(Thanks to Larissa at Hanky Panky for the VIP sale info!)

yes, that is on sale. a rack full of befeathered bras, bodysuits & panties. so, so many feathers.

- sign at 225 5th ave says "pop-up store"
- bag check is mandatory
- about 50 person capacity
- A-cup bras are in the same pile as E-cup, selection isn't great
- all other bra sizes have their own bucket
- la perla basics (white, "nude", black) bras & bottoms are separate from the "fashion" bras & bottoms
- lots of robes, chemises & some swimwear
- hosiery selection is pretty limited, lots of thigh-highs. size variety for white tights but not black
- pricing varies on the line: la perla, black label, glamour, villa toscana bras are $80 each (2 for $140). malizzia, studio, occhi verdi are $50 (2 for $80). chemises, bottoms, bodysuits, robes, etc vary accordingly.
- a few sample shoes are out, some heels & slippers

Araks Sample Sale Notes

I miraculously dragged my butt out of bed super early this morning to make it to the Araks sample sale this morning downtown before work. There was no line, but the elevator in the building is broken so you'll have to climb 5 flights of stairs to make it up there.

As far as sample sales go, this was one of the most organized ones I've seen. There are the usual bins stuffed with camis, thongs, and swimwear that you'll need to dig through to find your size. Bras and fancier camis are on a rack and an associate will retrieve a size foe you.

What surprised me the most was how helpful some of the associates were. A lovely Araks employee helped me dig through the swimwear bins to help me find matching bottoms to the adorable floral-print top I clung onto, and she ran back and forth looking for bras that would match the color of the bottoms I found.

Even for us uptown girls, I think its worth a trek to check out. Bras $35-$65, thongs $15, swimwear $20 per piece (read $40 for a set), camis $20-$65, sample bras $15-$25, and there's more!

Araks Sample Sale: Ready to wear, lingerie and swimwear are 60-80% off.
137 Grand Streetbetween Crosby St & Lafayette St, 5th floor.
Thursday 11/11, 8:30am to 7:30pm

Sample Sales: Araks, Hanky Panky & La Perla [NYC]

It's that glorious time of year again: sample sale time! Araks, Hanky Panky and La Perla will both be having sample sales, so get your game face ready.

I haven't been to an Araks or Hanky Panky sale before, but I did check out the La Perla summer sample sale last year. There weren't any A-cup bras (32/34B was the smallest), and it took a good amount of digging to find anything cute in my size. There were plenty of bottoms though, and in retrospect I wish I had invested in more bottoms at that sale. I did get there about an hour before it was scheduled to open and was still 25th in line, and my friends and I waited about an additional 45 minutes to an hour before we were allowed in. Luckily this one also starts on a Sunday, so for all you working ladies, get up early, check it out with your girlfriends (or your boyfriend!) then head over to brunch with some mimosas to celebrate your coup d'thongs!

Araks Sample Sale: Ready to wear, lingerie and swimwear are 60-80% off.
Refinery29.com says: lingerie up to 80% off, organic cotton lingerie (bras, panties, tanks, camis, teddies) up to 60% off.
