UPDATE: Tickets to enter the Hermes sale will be distributed starting at 9pm, on Tuesday, at the entrance to the Hermes store. Names and phone numbers will be collected as the tickets are handed out. Shoppers will be able to return, on Wednesday, with their tickets and enter the store as their numbers are called. At last update, there will be 200 tickets distributed and as of 6:30pm, there were a reported 75 people waiting in line.
Once the sale opens, just 25 people will be admitted to the store at a time. Tickets will not be distributed for Thursday or Friday shoppers. Sale customers will physically need to wait in line to enter the sale to shop on both days. You can click here to see pictures from inside the sale.
The Hermes sample sale at Americana Manhasset is back!!
We’ve been sitting information regarding the Americana Manhasset Hermes sale since last week but we were hoping for more additional clarity– especially considering last Summer’s debacle. (The real saga is outlined in the comment section of this Instagram post.) We will be sure to keep this post updated. For now, here is what you should know.
As always, there will be a VIP segment prior to the sale opening to the public on Wednesday, August 4. Normally, most items are 50% off and ready-to-wear is discounted a bit more.
This season, the invite outlined strict purchasing limitations. Shoes are limited to three per person but you can only buy one style of each shoe. The same goes for enamel jewelry and silk scarves and ties are limited to four for each customer. Last year, there were also shopping limits but they weren’t upheld. We aren’t sure we have much confidence that they will be abided for this season either.
Keep in mind that this is one of the few Hermes stores in the world that is not owned or controlled by Hermes. That means that you can’t necessarily count on the standards that you would expect from a top luxury brand.
We are still waiting for details regarding how the sale will be organized and how and when tickets will be distributed. Please check back and we will post more details as information becomes available. You can click here to see Hermes sample sale information from last year and the October 2019 sale at Soiffer Haskin.
