The Manolo Blahnik sale started on Monday and everyone agrees that the sale is “amazing.”
As usual, prices are broken down by colored stickers; red, yellow, green and blue with the prices ranging from $195 to $295. Sizes are already running low but those who are under a 36.5 or over a 39 will find the largest selection. As of Tuesday evening, we were told that there was still a very good selection of styles.
Unfortunately, there have also been lots of lines. Shoppers are reporting waiting in line up to one hour. One reader suggests coming at 1pm — when the store closes for restocking — at that time you will be given a cut-the-line card when the store reopens at 3pm.
A few pointers for Manolo’s final markdown: Shoppers shouldn’t hoard display shoes, you should be loyal to one sales person as they work on commissions and try to be in and out quickly because there is a one-out-one-in policy when the store is crowded.
The final markdown ends on Thursday and then the boutique opens Monday morning with the new fall collection.
