Here’s another one you will not want to miss -- no matter where your feet are taking you today and the next two days, get them to hike on over to Metropolitan Pavilion.
We remember when Delman Shoes ruled Bergdorf’s shoe department, on the ground floor of the store, on the Fifth Avenue side of the shop. It was a sprawling shoe department, and Delman was the classiest, most gorgeous line, which made up the largest chunk of the merchandise there…nobody made ballet flats like Delman, and frankly, nobody does today, either. Nobody did as many cute, clever, smart, stylish things with a ballet flat the way Delman did and does. (But, of course, ballet flats are just one part of the sexy, trendy line.)
Well, Delman has never stopped manufacturing and, luckily for us, the company has a perfectly marvelous sample sale starting today. Expect to find lots of the spring and summer line there, and even some early fall styles. When the sale used to be held at the corporate headquarters, the “ladies” lined up early and waited hours to get in. Mercifully, the sale is now staged at a new location that can accommodate many more pairs of feet! The details: Wednesday through Friday, May 16th through the 18th from 10am to 7pm at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 123 W. 18th St., fourth floor (between Sixth & Seventh Aves.), 212-399-2323. Credit cards and cash; no checks. Take your cards with the big limits as you’ll probably go over your budget -- we always do.
