Yep, they're pretty fast, I'm in Eastern Europe, I ordered late at night on Thursday and it arrived Monday - and this was at the end of April when they were still dealing with the volcanic ash backlog.

Have bought from the website a few times, but never returned anything, so I don't know how easy or difficult that is.

When is the next sale expected? I've got my eye on a few things and not sure if I should wait it out or just suck it up and splurge.

I don't know about the sales, but I think you can sign up on their site to be notified by e-mail. They also send e-mails when there are further reductions in prices during the sale... Also, the staff on their Facebook page will answer questions, so maybe you can ask there. And they have a Twitter account, if you're into that kind of thing.

I'll be in London by the end of June and the one thing I'm looking forward to the most is going nuts in the All Saints sale (which I hope will be on by then).

I've got another question: The stuff that's in the vintage section on the website, is it available in stores too or just online?

Sorry to bump this, but since this thread was left some US stores have opened! I live in Boston and was drawn to the HUGE window on Newbury Street with hundreds of old Singer machines filing the front wall of the store. The website really doesn't do it justice if you've never been to a store.

Right now, these boots are my favorite item: http://www.us.allsaints.com/product/...=0885324045421

i'm so happy i found this thread!!! an all saints store had recently opened up on broadway. I picked up a 2 boots, open toed heels, and knee length gladiator sandals. I'll post pics soon. Loved the shoes great quality leather, they have beautiful clothes, and jewelry. Very pricey but the craftmanship is worth it, gonna have to save up a 2 months worth of pay again to make another trip soon for the clothes

i completely fell in love with the Soho store when i was last in the city...the vibe and music were great, the employees looked every bit the part (hot!), and of course the clothes were so fun to browse through. this company totally knows how to construct a cohesive and consistent brand. i'm so happy their summer sale has been extended to the US now...and free shipping for the less geographically fortunate like me!

i really like the soho store as well.....
the whole thing is just wall to wall old singer sewing machines...
real antique ones!...
...

it is SO gorgeous...

the clothes however....
...
just vivienne, ann d, and rick owens all rolled into one...
and just one of those is a LOT....
so i always feel like each piece is too much...
like...
with too much stuff...too many details...too much cr*p...
i like it in theory...but not so much in practice...

i will say that i like the accessories and shoes a lot more though...

^^ totally agree - there is one where I live and I go in sometimes and just see nothing I like because its all 'dark lord' clothing and it looks...well....just boring. It just copies the designers you mention. but there is NOTHING to tone the look down - nothing classic or chic which would actually work REALLY well with all that stuff.....

There is a new one just opened in Glasgow and it too is chocabloc with antique sewing machines - the interior is quite good but I can't help feeling that its trying too hard to be like L'Eclaireur on Rue Mahler.

It would be nice to see All Saints getting a mind of its own.

^Same here! When I first stepped into an All Saints store I was impressed by the decor of the store but the colthes were just too crazy for me (and that's from someone who still hangs onto her goth phase). But once I started browsing their website I came to love a lot of their cardigans and jackets. But when I tried it on IRL it all just didn't look right. Totally agree that the idea behind it is great, but it doesn't really work. All I bought in the sale was a simple Laurie Lipton tee. Though I do like some of the leather jackets, but they're somewhat expensive for being blatant Rick Owen knock-offs.

My girlfriend took me to All Saints in Aventura Mall in Florida last week. Gorgeous store with all the machines and such, and like someone mentioned, the employees are hot, lol. I didn't have enough cash with me to buy what I wanted at the time, but I just ordered a whole bunch of stuff for 50% off, except the boots, which were full price. I tried on some leathers in the store and loved them, so I know I'm good there, and I'll just have to see how the other stuff fits when it gets here. Hopefully I don't have to return a bunch of stuff, haha.

I've attached a collage of my new stuff.

Haha, I agree. I was in there today and I kept on thinking that the clothes looked kinda familiar and then it clicked!

I have fallen deeply in love with AllSaints, I love Vivienne, Ann D, Rick Owens and Alexander McQueen, and AllSaints is the affordable alternative, that still looks original and is of decent quality. Here's some of the things I bought this summer, I love how they packed it for me too.

Everything you bought is gorgeous (and so are you!). I remember seeing that first dress in the Kildare outlet, but they didn't have it in my size.

I adore All Saints as well and I don't get the unoriginality comments. Most high street brands copy designers, anyway, and All Saints clothes stand out from the crowd and are good quality.

Their packaging is always lovely and I just love how quick they are posting things!
