What a great month for NYC Sample Sales. This week, check out BARGAIN prices at the FAMOUS Manolo Blahnik NYC Sample Sale, Lauren Merkin, Thakoon, Rebecca Minkoff, Lafayette 148, and coming soon Armani , Elie Tahari, Theory and Theyskens’ Theory. That’s right, ladies. It’s time for the semi annual Manolo Blahnik Press Sale where shoes start at just $100. Having been to a dozen of them, here are my best NYC Insider Tips:
1) Bring a huge bag.
2) Grab up 5 or more pairs at a time, then go to the center of the room and try them on. If you pick shoes and try on one at a time – you’ll miss out while others are grabbing your favorites.
3) Short on cash but have a bad shoe habit? Check sites like Neiman Marcus, Bergies and Barneys to see what’s hot now. Buy some extra shoes and resell them on EBay. You’ll probably make at least double what you paid and get your own shoes free.
4) Ask the girls at check out REALLY (I mean REALLY) nicely to go light on the magic marker lines they put through the Manolo tag. As soon as you get home, rub off the lines gently with a cotton swab and nail polish remover. Good Luck!!! Here are all the details for the Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale.
