Our favorite Manolo Blahnik sale is finally here and we are hoping that it will be as good as last year's summer sale even thought it will be shorter. Last years sale ran for a full 10-days preceding a boutique remodel. This season, the sale is back to its 4-day format -- which could mean less inventory-- but the discounts are likely to be the same 75% off.
The markdown event will begin this Monday and run through Thursday, August 6th. During final markdown events, shoes are always marked by sticker dots. Prices usually range from $195 for a red dot up to $375 for a green dot. Most shoes and low boots-- even highly ornate styles-- are priced at $225. Last season, Lisa pumps were a budget friendly $225 and high boots were $325.
The store can get crowded but at least there isn't usually a long line to get in. Since the sale is only four days, we suggest trying to attend towards the beginning. We doubt there will be a lot of restocking. Styles and sizes always run low quickly.
