Manolo Madness... or the Calm Before the Storm

Will there be a mob scene today at the Warwick Hotel at 54th St at Sixth Avenue?  I won't be able to check out the sale until later today... but a Racked correspondent got on line at the crack of dawn and has been lineblogging all morning.  From the looks of Racked's photo, the line before 8am outside the hotel was manageable. The sale is taking place TOD[...]

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3c05qbPXnE After hitting so many mobbed sample sales lately, the serene scene at Roberto Cavalli's sample sale Wednesday night seemed strange.  There were half a dozen shoppers there looking through the racks, two of them men.  I expected more customers.  But this was the preview sale.  Maybe it was just the calm before Thursday[...]

Shoe Heaven for size 37…

If you're shoe size is a 37 (which I am), you should hot foot it to the Gunmetal shoe sale at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea.  The Italian-made footwear is every bit as gorgeous as Manolo and Jimmy Choo.  And, what a deal!  All shoes are $75 (originally $595-$795), boots are going for $150 (originally $1,200).  The sale offers plenty of sexy and fabulous heel[...]

Sale Flash:  Gunmetal Delivers to size 37...

Word from a Sally source on the Gunmetal shoe sale in Chelsea... it's not as highly trafficked as the Thomas Pink give-away.  If you're a size 37, you reportedly will do well.  Here's what she writes: Great sale if you are a size 37 (90% of shoes) Shoes seem a few years old. Only $75 for shoes and $150 for boots and handbags. No line... Gunmetal is selling h[...]

Real Deals at Elie Tahari...

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4a-P_jC2yFg I was surprised to find a line outside the Elie Tahari sample sale Tuesday night.  According to one of the security guards, at least 1,000 customers had walked through the doors on this first day of the sale.  Inside, it was bustling with shoppers looking through the racks.  An abundance of clothing is on offer, mostly[...]
