It’s that time of year again

It is that time of year again.   It feels like the sales are starting a bit earlier this year.   But maybe that is because Memorial Day Weekend is earlier this year.  This is the time of year when just about all of spring/summer items go on sale.  I released some tips around Black Friday sales that I thought were worth sharing again.

Shoemiracle - sale - season - tips

Presale – This is probably the most civilized way to shop the sales. If you have a relationship with a salesperson at any department or shoe store ask them when the store begins pre-selling items that will be on sale. Frankly, you should ask even if you don’t have a relationship. Then select what you like and the salesperson will ring them when the sale starts. No fighting, no fuss. Continue reading

Saks Friends & Family sale has started!

shoe-miracle-saks-friends-and-familyThe Saks Friends & Family sale has started today.  Normally, shoppers could expect to save 20% or 25% off on clothing, shoes and handbags during the Friends & Family sale.  However, Saks is offering shoppers 30% off this go around.  Either they are feeling really generous or sales have been kind of slow.  I would put my money on the latter.  But, who cares…I will take 30% off any day. There are more designer exclusions this go around but there are still some great shoe deals to be had.  Sale is going on in stores or online.  Happy Shopping!

Charlotte Olympia Sample Sale – New York and London

Every week it seems there is a new shoe sale.  Well Charlotte Olympia is next up.  This week there will be sales in New York and London.  Olympia’s designs include memorable heels, as well as, an array of flats, boots and other accessories.  It is a sale that is definitely worth checking out.  Here are the details for all of the lucky ladies in New York and London who can manage to sneak away and check out the sale.  As always, happy shopping.


Manolo Final Cut Sale

Manolo has done its final markdown on its Fall/Winter collection in its NYC boutique.  The sale runs from today until this Thurs.  Shoes are up to 75% off and prices range from $195 – $350.  Most shoes and low boots are priced at $250.  This is actually my favorite time to shop for Manolos.  I think the prices and finds (particularly in my size) are better than what one would find at a sample sale.  I actually forgo the sample sales and wait for these final cut sales.


You may encounter lines to get in but usually not too long and its worth the wait.  Do yourself a favor and head on over there.  The boutique is open from 10:30am – 6pm but please note that they do close down 2-3pm everyday to restock.  Happy Shopping!
