Missed out on the Christian Louboutin sample sale this season? Fret not, the Madison Avenue --and Soho and Meatpacking-- boutiques will start their markdown on Thursday for "insiders". The discount is a solid 40%, which is only matched by Barney's. Expect to find an assortment of handbags and fashion shoes (no classic colors or styles) from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
If the past is any indication, there will be a long line to get into the boutique and it will be busy. We suggest you avoid this by stopping by the store the day before to buy your red-soled wish list since they will not be restocking.
Unfortunately, sales associates were unable to provide details on exactly what will be included, but naturally our spies got the inside info. You can click over here to see a wide assortment of pictures of items that are included in this season's markdown. If you are coveting a specific style, we suggest calling ahead to see if it is included prior to making the trip.
