We rarely publish ‘save the date’ posts. We have our sale  listings for that purpose. But a key requirement to getting into the Jimmy Choo sample sale set to take place next week warrants a shopping alert.

The sale which will take place at the Metropolitan Pavilion (123 W. 18th Street) will be open to the public for three days, starting May 9th. The catch is – you’ll need to RSVP (click here), enter the code ROMY to receive your email confirmation number. Each shopper must have a confirmation number to get into the sale. Last season, they kept to this rule.

The usual pricing for this sale is very good… with women’s shoes starting at $200 (basic) and going up to $325 (for embellished, booties), boots are $375 and men’s shoes were just $150. Women’s shoes run from size 35 to 42 and men’s go from 43 to 46.

This sale draws huge crowds and shoppers have, in the past, ransacked the space.  Last fall, the sale was much more organized since they used shoe racks to display the footwear.
