Manolo's Biggest Markdown of the Year

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.

Here are some tips:
Go at 1ish when the line is long. They give out cards so you can come back later and cut the line. You can come at 3 when they reopen and the store is reset. There is a ton of stock and prices are good.

Please be a respectful shopper and stick with one sales person. They work on commission and you don't want to piss them off. I witnessed this yesterday.....not pretty

Don't be an animal and hoard all the display shoes. Play nice and reap the benefits of good karma!

Happy shopping

Stopped by yesterday and the selection was great. I waited for about 45 min to get in. But well worth the wait. Even found 2 pairs of Hangisi's on discount. Great if you have a size 41 as I do.

Worst sales I have ever met. Except one asian sales person who at least responds to customers. The rest sales are like we owe them something. Rather unpleasant shopping experience
