When is the Sample Sale?

The Sample Sale is September 12 – 22 for select True Society stores.

What is a sample gown?

A sample gown is a dress that has been tried on in store and has been lovingly cared for. All sample gowns have been cleaned and inspected for quality to ensure the integrity of the gown remains.

What stores are participating in the Sample Sale?  

Participating True Society stores include Beaverton, Grand Rapids, Kansas City, Lenexa, Mesa, Perth, Portland, Vienna and Zug.

Do I need an appointment to shop the Sample Sale? 

Yes! Off-the-Rack appointments are needed to shop the Sample Sale. We recommend booking an Off-the-Rack appointment online as soon as possible as gowns will go fast! Feel free to also call the store to book an appointment to see if any last-minute or same-day appointments are available. 

How will gowns be priced?   

Gowns will be up to 70% off and prices may vary by store.

What size ranges are available at the Sample Sale? 

Sizes will vary per store and will include a range of both straight and plus size gowns. You can call the store to ask if a specific size is available. Keep in mind you can always shop for dresses that may run a bit larger as it’s always easier for a seamstress to take a dress in vs. out.

Can I take my dress home the same day as my appointment? 

Yes. Since these gowns are taken home the day of the appointment, the gown must be paid for in full.

Can the store hold my dress if I am unsure I want to purchase it? 

Since Sample Sale gowns are limited, stores are unable to hold a gown for a bride.

Will I need to pay in full for my gown on the day of my appointment? 

Yes. Since these gowns are taken home the day of the appointment, the gown must be paid for in full. 

Can I schedule a standard bridal appointment during the Sample Sale?  

Yes. The store will have standard variety and inventory of gowns available. If you are interested in shopping our Sample Sale, please book an Off-the-Rack bridal appointment.

How do I book a Sample Sale appointment?

Off-the-Rack appointments can be booked online or by calling the store. Click HERE to book an appointment.

Will accessories and bridesmaids be included in the Sample Sale?  

This will vary by store. Select stores will have discounted accessories and bridesmaids’ gowns available. We recommend calling your store to determine what will be offered.

What happens if I don’t find a dress at the Sample Sale?

In addition to the Sample Sale gowns, you can also shop our regularly priced gowns at a range of price points. We have a large selection of these gowns that have short shipping time frames.

Are alterations included with my Sample Sale gown? 

While alterations are not included with your purchase, we will provide you with a list of recommended alterations specialists within the city that you can use.

Since it is a sample dress are cleaning services provided? 

We do not offer cleaning services. However, if you would like to have your dress professionally cleaned we can provide you with a few recommended vendors.

Do you offer returns or exchanges? 

All sales are final. No returns or exchanges.

Are dresses in the Sample Sale available for order? 

Only dresses purchased at the Sample Sale are available at a reduced price. If you want to order the same style in a different size, it will be at the regular price.
