A tipster wrote in to let us know that there's a secret Lanvin friends and family sale happening tomorrow at 37 West 57th Street (the first day of the sale was Saturday). If you're not on the list, it sounds impossible to get in. Our informant explains that "the door is crazy insanely tight" and that it's "a name-only basis." We hear it's 80% off retail, and that leather flats are starting at $120—if you're able to make it in (ninth floor), let us know what you find. [RackedWire]
