Overall Rating: 4/5

I had never been to this venue before and it was really nice- plenty of space and very bright. I went on Thursday, so perhaps a lot of things had gone, but there seemed to be more clothes than bags and accessories (the things I think about when I think of Longchamp). If you are after more of their basics you would be out of luck, but what they did have seemed to be very good quality and a fairly good discount.

Overall I was really happy with this sale! They made good use of the space, with men's things on one side and women's on the other, so you didn't have to sift while you shopped. I wouldn't say that stock was piled high, but in a way this was good in that you could see everything and you didn't feel like you were fighting people to see (at least when I went!). Prices were good, averaging about 1/3 of the normal price, and there were a lot of really good quality pieces- you didn't feel like you were only getting to choose from the off colours or odd designs that didn't sell last year. I went on the first day as soon as it opened, so can't speak for stock replenishment, but would say it's well worth a look.

I had never been to a sale at this venue before, and was impressed with the size of the space and the relaxed (read- no militant bag checks or strip searches) atmosphere. There was a lot of stock, but the more popular sizes were a bit scarce and there wasn't a great deal of variety. I think the way they had the shoes laid out was a poor choice- they were on tables around the walls of the room, but as the queue snaked around the same way it was difficult to get to some of the tables. The staff were very friendly and the queue moved faster than I had anticipated, which was a plus.
So, an update to my previous comment. Expect pretty long queues for everything- getting in, leaving your coat, paying (it was insane), getting your coat... It didn't so much seem like there were too many attendees (I've seen far bigger crowds), but rather that they didn't have enough staff to cope. There were only 2 people on the cloakroom and 2 at the tills. The selection is a bit limited and the higher ticket items didn't have that great of a discount. Still, worth it if you want to pick up a new wallet or are just desperate for any nonspecific Smythson bag.
Queue is really creeping - I've been waiting 45 minutes and haven't made it to the door yet
