Manolo Sale: Take 2

Last month, we reported about Manolo's first markdown. We also warned that the early discount--1/3 off-- was just the start. Well, Monday marks the first day of the "real" Manolo Blahnik sale.

We are told that the savings will be 50% or better on the fall/winter collection and "some alligator designs." Last year, the price point started at $185 and went up to $400. The alligator pumps were $1500 from $4100.



We suggest attending the sale right away if you're looking for shoes in the under-$200-category. Popular sizes go fast and the boutique shopping experience is much better than breaking a heal to get access to the secret sample sale. Try to avoid the store between the hours of 2pm and 3pm, that's when they close to restock.

Is this sale generally pretty crazy? Do I need to get there super early, before opening time?

usually pretty sane. IT's not like a sample sale.

Ditto deliah. Usually pretty sane. The salespeople are not so helpful with the exception of two people.

Please do a post on next markdowns

Went this morning. Lots of selection and sizes. Can't say I saw anything in the under $200 range though. Bought a pair of nude Tuccios for $285 (reg $575). Not a huge discount, 50%. Most if not all items were 50% off.
Wonder if their restocking period will bring out new styles, at least the "one of a kind" styles??

Will there be a Take 3? How are they doing with 36-36.5 kind of sizes?

Would love to know if they plan on taking additional discounts as well. Hopefully in a couple of weeks... when my plastic has had some time to rest!
