I Spy: A Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale (Kirkwood Intel.)

May 1, 2015 by Lila Delilah

Once upon a time the Manolo Blahnik sample sale was a no-brainer. There were clear rules, there was order, there was a great assortment and the prices were absolutely amazing. As time has gone on, the assortment has become hit-or-miss and the crowds have become insane and the event has become shrouded with inconsistent by-laws.

This season, we hear that the bi-annual event is scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday. Unfortunately, a spokesperson for the company would only say, “We can’t comment because the sale is private.” One can only speculate that the company is not planning on opening the sale to the public.

Friends don’t lose all hope. There have been other seasons when Manolo said that the sale would be closed to the public. Later, when there was too much remaining stock they welcomed one and all. We can’t predict the future but we will be sure to keep you posted. Check here for information on last season’s sale and here’s our Manolo Blahnik sample sale survival guide.

If you’re looking to get some new shoes now, we suggest you hit the Nicholas Kirkwood sale at Century 21. Friday is the final day and all shoes are 80% off. Click here to see photos and prices.
