Versace Sample Sale Comes to Vancouver

The Sample Sale Guys have come to Vancouver with a new sample sale! June 5th-9th, they're hosting a giant Versace sample sale at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel. The sale promises up to 80% off clothing, hand bags, luggage, backpacks, bedding, scarves, belts, boots, jackets, watches and more. I'm not necessarily a label-obsessed, but I do enjoy a great deal, and in case you do too...I wanted to give you a quick peek inside the sale! I attended the sale the night before it opened to the public and snapped lots of photos (and snagged a list of prices!) so you'll know exactly what to expect if you're thinking of checking it out.

When: June 5th-9th, 2019
  • Wednesday June 5th: 11am - 11pm
  • Thursday June 6th: 11am - 11pm
  • Friday June 7th: 11am - 10pm
  • Saturday June 8th: 11am - 9pm
  • Sunday June 9th: 11am to 6pm

Where: Sheraton Airport Hotel, 7551 Westminster Hwy, Richmond

Of course, I'm sure the thing you're most keen to know is what the prices are like. You can check out the pricing chart below for a sneak peek. I wish that there was a bit more of a breakdown in the pricing, to be honest. For instance, mini purses and big purses were all the same price - it would have been nice to see a slightly cheaper price on the mini purses. That being said, $300 for the VERSUS Versace purses were still a pretty good deal. 

The shoe selection wasn't massive (I do believe there was better selection in the men's shoes), but they did appear to have a wide selection of styles, and they were all really neatly organized on tables by shoe size. I did fall in love with a certain pair of cobalt blue platform heels...they were truly stunning, but a bit outside my budget. If you've got the cash though, there were some sweet pairs of kicks worth picking up.

There was also a good selection of belts, scarves and even bathing suits and sportswear. The one other thing I was drawn to was the leather gloves. For $99, they were a beautiful buttery leather and had small gold Versace symbol at the wrist (sorry I didn't get a photo!). I didn't see any size small though, so, unfortunately, I had to pass on those. But definitely grab a pair if you're a medium, large or x-large glove size!

Purses are usually my go-to at sample sales like this. My favourite was the little white VERSUS Versace purse on the left. It was $299, so not bad. As I mentioned above though, I do wish that the smaller bags were priced accordingly, compared to the larger bags you'll see below. I'd say the bag selection was quite good - there was a giant long table stacked with all kinds of sizes and designs that ran a good part of the length of the ballroom where the sale was held.

The backpack in the middle below was also one of my favourite finds - the leather was so buttery soft!

If you're looking to pick up just a little designer accessory, the sale did also have a small table dedicated to everything from wallets and keychains to rings and other jewellery. 

Most of the space was dedicated to clothing of course, and the racks were jam-packed! Sizing was clearly indicated on signs above the racks, and there seemed to be a good selection of all sizes. With the amount of people shopping, I wouldn't assume you'll be able to try everything on (I think I saw one corner with some makeshift changerooms?). So just keep that in mind. There were also other clothing items like bath robes, 

A couple other things to keep in mind:
  • You can only pay with credit card or debit at the sale
  • There's no strollers, jackets, or hoodies allowed inside
  • Bags will be checked by security on your way out

While it's always best to hit these kinds of sales in the first couple of days to get the best selection, if you wait it out 'til the end of the sale, you may find yourself able to snag some items that have been further reduced in price!

Happy shopping! xo
