The streets are steaming hot. What to do when you need to get out of your over air-conidtioned environment? Head over to Manolo Blahnik boutique’s second markdown. The sale starts Monday and we’ve been told that the inventory is running practically at full stock.
This second markdown 60% off, which is much more than usual. Surrounding department store competition must be putting pressure on the exclusive boutique. The prior markdown started after July 4th and was just a 30% discount.
We imagine that the next markdown will occur as usual in early August and will provide the best shopping opportunity of the season. The final markdown is always one of our favorite sales. Prices range from $195 to $350. Most shoes and low boots– even highly ornate styles– are priced at $250.
Expect to find a full assortment of shoes from the summer collection. Personally, we are waiting to make our major purchases in August. After all, everyone is out of the city. You can click here and here to see the reports from past final markdowns. (If you can’t get to the boutique, you can scroll through the major Manolo markdowns we found elsewhere.)
