Today is the first day of the summer sales!
Many stores opened at a very-early-for-Paris 8 a.m. this morning, with lines forming in front of the stores hours prior. While this is common in the US, in France it is quite a display of people’s desire and dedication to be the first to access the best sale items.
The Parisienne put up videos of this morning at Galeries Lafayette – incredible! Zara began their online sales at midnight, while other brands like the darling Repetto stuck to 8 a.m. openings for their Parisian boutiques and online store.
One event not to miss this week is the Hermès vente privée, held at the Palais de Congrès at Porte Maillot. Treat yourself to a beautiful scarf; you deserve it!
It’s noon here, and the shopping bags are everywhere. Looks like it was a successful day for many people!
Les soldes, or sales, will continue through July 30.
Happy shopping, darlings!
