Good Question: Manolo Sample Sale

Reader Question: Is there really a seasonal Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale in New York City? I have read that it does exist and is open to the general public after a certain time? Do you have any information at all regarding this matter, it would be greatly appreciated.

Answer: Yes there is a Manolo sample sale, but it’s super-secret and not for mere mortals. The only way you find out about it is:

a.) You buy a ton of Manolos and your favorite shopgirl tips you off

b.) You are an editor at Vogue or W

c.) Your best friend is an editor at Vogue or W.

d.) You read SheFinds

We just received this email:

It is that wonderful (crazy) time of the year again! The Manolo Blahnik Press Sale!!

Location: The Warwick Hotel, 54th Street and 6th Avenue

Date: May 9, 2007

Time: All Day

Payment: CASH ONLY!!!

Just a reminder of the rules of engagement:

1) Keep in mind it is first come first serve as far as the delegation of tickets are concerned.

2) Press and magazine editors may be allowed in before you; please don’t get angry.

3) You may invite other people, but I cannot guarantee early entry. The Sale will be open to the public after 12.

4) Please be patient.

5) Please be patient. (I know I have it listed twice…for those that already know, you know what I mean!!)

Frankly we prefer to avoid the sample sale chaos and buy our Manolos on eBay. That’s where all the mag editors will be selling them at 12 PM anyway. ;-)
