The Jimmy Choo sample sale just slid into the sample sale calendar. If you want to get in on this shopping-trip you must have a confirmed ticket. No worries, we have all the details to get you in and out in no time.
The sale opens to the public on Wednesday, April 3 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. To attend the sale you must use this link to RSVP. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and enter the code SAMPLESALE19 to receive your email confirmation number.
You should take note, this sign-up system does nothing for crowd control. Last year, the line for admittance spanned down the block, around 6th Avenue, and up 19th Street. Unless you have a VIP confirmation, we suggest you refrain from attending this sale until the second day.
For the uninitiated, this sale is legendary for its discount prices. Basic pumps and sandals are usually $200, booties are $325 and boots are $375. Women’s shoes run from size 35 to 42 and men’s go from 43 to 46. At the last sale, men’s shoes were priced at $250 or $375 and included loafers, Oxfords, driving shoe and ankle boots.
This sale is always one of the most popular sample sales of the year but I have never personally purchased anything even during the press preview. Jimmy Choo has some great styles shoes but none of them ever seem to make it to the sale. The sale is usually overstocked with 2010-style glitter shoes. Woodbury Common Outlet usually offers similar pricing and a much newer style selection.
There are pictures and the price list from the VIP segment of last year’s sale is in the jump. We think you’ll do better shopping from the above assortment of shoes that we found priced near or below the sample sale prices. We will also be sure to post a full report in real time on Instagram and follow up with a full blog post online.
It’s also worth noting that prices get slashed drastically in the afternoon on the last day. (Don’t be surprised if you spot people squatting with piles waiting for the price cut.) Last season, heels were reduced to $100, jeweled shoes & booties were $150, boots were $200, small leather goods were $30 and men’s shoes were $50. That’s when it might be worth scavenging Choos. (No, probably not.)
