Details: Christian Louboutin Sample Sale

Ladies, have you been naughty or nice?

Check your inboxes to find out. Christian Louboutin sent their best friends invitations to its exclusive sample sale. That's right, the sale that everyone loves to hate starts on Tuesday. Remember, the security is tight and there's a clear mean-girls hierarchy to who gets invited to shop first.






The most important Louboutin insiders-- glossy magazine editors and celebrities-- are known to be invited to begin shopping by appointment on the first few days. The sale extends all week as the invited guest list expands to allow general press and "friends and family."

Last season, prices started at just $200 but most styles were priced in the $300-range. The most expensive style shoes were $1000. A majority of the heels and studded variety pumps were priced between $300 and $400. For example, studded kitten heels was $300 and $2300 studded knee high boots were just $600.

If you have an invite (or if you're considering door-busting this sale), we suggest that you start your day early.  Last year, shoppers reported more than 50 people in line by 7:00am.  Be prepared to stand on line, outside, for at least two hours. You will be asked to provide ID when checking in. There is a five pair limit for each shopper.

Those who weren't invited to the sale can now save 40% at Christian Louboutin boutiques, Saks NYC and Barneys. It appears as if all authorized online retailers have removed Louboutin sale styles. Fear not, we found some other-- less obvious-- options to shop for red bottoms online. Use the above scroll to see what we found.

Before you head to the store, you can browse the in-store sale section in this post. Follow along on Instagram to get up-to-the minute updates.

How do you get invited

It’s usually people with business relationships with the company. Xx

so does this mean they won’t let anyone from the public in ?

Lila Delilah said...

Some people have been successful but I would expect disappointment😒

DailyGrind said...

The boutiques have 40% discount?

Depending on what styles you are looking for, I didn't think the selection was all that fab. Then again, I didn't go until after work so likely all the basic ones got snagged already. They said they were not restocking.

Thank you for the update. It’s incredibly helpful Xx

Would you suggest trying to get in without an invite or that’s a big no ?

You can certainly try, I just don’t know if it’s even worth the effort.
