Big news! Discounts at Manolo Blahnik's end-of-season sale have just reached 75% off, according to Madison Avenue Spy. It's only for a short time, though, since the sale is expected to wrap up by Thursday.
Inside the designer shoe boutique, prices are marked with sticker dots, ranging from red ($195) to green ($350), and the blogger found that most shoes were priced at $225. Considering the slashed prices, Madison Avenue Spy is noting that crowds are to be expected during the four-day sale and sizes will go quickly. Last season, customers who held out found that while there were plenty of styles priced to move, the deals came at at a cost — here were limited sizes and very long lines.
walk run over now if you're interested in purchasing a pair of discounted pumps, and let us know what the situation's like in the comments section if you're heading over.
Update: Madison Avenue Spy checked out the sale on Monday and was disappointed to find a very small selection of sale shoes, most of which were priced at $225. "There aren't very many eye popping styles and some pairs we even recognize as being several seasons old," she wrote.
