The Jimmy Choo sample sale info just slid into our inbox. This is one of those shopping-trips that requires a confirmed RSVP. No worries, we have all the details to get you in and out in no time.
The sale opens to the public on Wednesday, October 23 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. To attend the sale you must RSVP. The RSVP link isn’t active just yet but you can bookmark this page so that you’re the first to sign up. You’ll be able to scroll down to the bottom of the page and enter the code SAMPLESALE20 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. 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. Last season, the best deals are men’s shoes that were all $150. Women’s shoes started at $250 but anything with embellishment fell into the $325 category. Boots, last season, were priced at $375. You can click here to read all the details.
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 older styles and they don’t seem worth the price at $250. 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 season’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.
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, at 3pm, 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.)
