We just stopped by the Christian Louboutin showroom to try and sneak into their invite-only sample sale—but it turns out it's not there. An office employee was ready at the door to tell us there was no sample sale happening in the showroom, but as we were leaving, she told us it was across the street, at 311 West 38th Street.
Though the address isn't visible from the outside, you'll definitely notice the security guards in suits outside a pair of black doors (but no decoy signs in sight). When we tried to enter, a woman came out, list in hand, reviewing the e-mail invite the girl in front of us had on her phone. Needless to say, we didn't get in. So at this point, they're definitely not letting in walk-ins.
We heard that the sale will continue through tomorrow, so today's not the only day you can try your luck. If you get in, let us know what you find in the comments section, or shoot us an email here.
