In case you weren't one of the chosen few who were allowed entry to the Christian Louboutin sample sale last month, their Madison Avenue boutique will be doing a bout of markdowns today to give us peasants a shot at reduced prices. Select shoes from the spring season are marked 30-40% off, and select handbags are 50% off. The markdowns are nowhere near as steep as the infamous sale, but you can enter without showing 6 points of ID and leave with your dignity. [Madison Avenue Spy, Previously]
