Our favorite Manolo Blahnik sale is finally here and it could be the best boutique sale ever. These final markdown sales always boast discounts at about 75% off and usually only run for just four days but this year the sale is 10-jam-packed-days of Manolo bargains.
The markdown event will begin this Monday and run through August 7th. Once the sale ends the Blahnik boutique will close as it undergoes bit of a facelift. The planned renovations will continue until Monday, August 25th, when the store will reopen with the new collection.
We expect that the added sale days mean that that there will be a huge amount of inventory. We might even venture to say, this sale will be better than the sample sale. 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. Although this sale runs longer than usual, we would suggest trying to attend towards the beginning days. We doubt there will be a lot of restocking. Styles and sizes always run low quickly.
