*SAMPLE SALE* Manolo Blahnik

If you're anything like me, you're constantly sole-searching and the legendary Manolo Blahnik sample sale is where nirvana is found. For this spring, the company's short but sweet sale is set to return next Thursday, May 14th, at their usual spot: Warwick Hotel. If history is any indicator, you can expect prices to start at just $100 for basic styles (this includes the highly coveted BB pumps) and go up to $550 for exotic & fur boots. But make sure your wallet is loaded with Benjamins as cash is the only form of payment accepted at this sale.

Where: Warwick Hotel, 65 W 54th St. (near 6th Ave.), 2nd Floor

When: Thursday, May 14th

UPDATE: Photos & info from this sale

  5. Considering previous experience with MB: 1st day is always for VIP and staff never ever allowed you in at VIP time. Now it is only one day sale, i suspect only VIP be there, unfortunately

  6. I think you got it wrong. Their last two sales in 2014 were only one day. Miz probably left out the hours because the public hours can be a moving target. Manolo doesn't let in public until all invitation holders get in first.

  15. Thanks Miz. I've been following your tweets all morning. I haven't been to a Manolo sale in a few years now. Can anyone chime in and let me know if they have seen the classic BB pumps in this sale? Many thanks!

  16. I was in the first group in this morning. I thought the selection was very meh in my size - 40 and 40.5. Lots of older styles, lots of dark colors (which is to be expected bc it's fall and winter leftovers). I got a couple of pairs but nothing thrilling.

  17. What time does the sale end today? Thanks!!

  18. tons of bbs in 37-- got 3 pairs for myself, but I was group B. probably gone now but it was a disaster this morning with the general public people who were making a huge scene about tickets and lists, etc...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Any good stuffs left for 35.5, 36 or 36.5?

    ReplyDelete
  20. What's the status on the line right now? How long is the wait to get in?

    ReplyDelete
  21. As of 1:15 pm they handed out ticket number 56 and we're calling in number 18.

  22. one would think after doing this so many times, they could organize their crap a little better. There is a sign that clearly says "only 4 pairs allowed at a time" yet some savages had 40-50 pairs to themselves in the middle of the floor. When i complained to the personnel and pointed to the sign, the employee said "well I know what the sign says and we put that there as a deterrent but we cannot police the customers and we are not going to get into an argument with them about it".
    Bottom line - unless you are in VIP - do not go. Its a waste of time and they clearly have preferential treatment and there is no consideration for non-VIP members in spite of them being there at 5:00am. One has to question what "VIP" means these days anyway - very impatient prude????

    Someone thought that it was a great idea to start a list and that would have been a brilliant thing to follow but MB employees decided to disregard the list and stated that they were not responsible for it and proceeded to basically allow havoc to be created. So what did that translate into: Non VIP people that came at 8:00am gained access before those that were there at 5:00am. UNBELIEVEABLE!

    BTW - i think i had my share of Granny Ma shoes and do not need to come back next time!

    1. Supposedly 4pm? I am not sure if the stock and discounts are good enough to skip work and go through this torture. Manolo boutiques have bi-annual sales as well. Only maybe tens of bucks more and way less hassle.

  24. There are a ton of BBs in size 37. And they don't run small. They will fit a size 7.5 comfortably. I wish I had gotten those. I was scared they run small.

    ReplyDelete
  25. hows the stock for size 34.5 and 35?

    ReplyDelete
  26. They're only on 29 now and I think they stopped giving out tickets after #60. No guarantee that anyone above 50 will be able to get in.

    ReplyDelete
  27. How's inventory now? Is there anything left?
    Will they close at 4pm sharp?
    Thank you girls for your updates! I am #56 and not sure if it's worth running back to the hotel again

    ReplyDelete
  28. Anyone knows when it will close?

    ReplyDelete
  29. "There is a sign that clearly says "only 4 pairs allowed at a time" yet some savages had 40-50 pairs to themselves in the middle of the floor."

    Jealous much?

    ReplyDelete
  30. "Jealous much?"

    No, just disgusted by such behavior. You are not alone, so please be considered of other people and place unwanted shoes back on the table for other girls to try on.

    ReplyDelete
  31. What number now? I'm not sure whether it is worth to come back.

    ReplyDelete
  32. They should be at 29-30. They re-opened at 4 to clean up the merchandise.

    ReplyDelete
  33. if they re opened at 4 what time will they be closing the sale today?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I thought they were at 29 at 2:42 PM from above.

    ReplyDelete
  35. thank you Harlem77. Are there any BBs left?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Does anyone know what's the number now? Heard they re-opened at 4 pm but are they going to restock?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I do not think they will restock. Kept hearing that they had lots of 37's. I had to leave but kept my ticket so I could come back. I went back twice already :(

    ReplyDelete
  38. Anyone know what number is it now?

    ReplyDelete
  39. They're out of stock and closed.
