If you’ve been following along, you’ve already heard about the heartbreak of losing our annual Hermes sample sale. Word is that the big sale is being moved to Chicago but closer to home there is an off-site Hermes boutique sale in Manhasset, NY.
Everything at the Wheatley Plaza store is discounted 50% off retail. There are no handbags, watches, home goods or baby bags. Last year, customers were most excited to find lots of enamel bracelets but there are none this time around.
Shoppers can expect to find ready-to-wear, shoes, belts, ties, silk scarves, cashmere scarves, hats and ponchos. Our resident Hermes expert called this sale a major fail and left empty handed. Other insiders weren’t as critical and were thrilled by the various Oran sandals. (You know, the ones that are shaped in an H.) Other customers reported caftans, sneakers and other small accessories, like key chains.
The Manhasset sale is open through Thursday, October 12. We hear they are only allowing one or two people in at a time. Some customers reported waiting for two hours and then giving up. We expect that the lines will even be longer on Wednesday as news of the sale extends past Woodmere, Great Neck and Sands Point.
There are no purchasing limits. This isn’t the first time we’ve uncovered this Mall of Manhasset offsite sale. Here is our coverage from last year. It would be great help if anyone attending the sale added details in the comment section below.
