#14: your dream Vogs aren’t going on sale… ever.


Countdown to International Fluevog Day 2013. Reason #14 to celebrate:

For in-store purchases, 15% off regular priced items is mighty, mighty nice!

We all know that when Fluevog has a sale (for the record, it happens twice a year, around January and July), it’s hard to resist an awesome deal on an awesome shoe. But let’s be real. Not every Vog on your wish list is going to get marked down – especially classic, popular families such as the Minis, Radios, and the new Kitschy Kitschy Boom Boom. If you want to save a little cash, IFD is the perfect day to purchase because you get a little discount on those dream Vogs you’ve been saving up for.

If you’re ordering online, you do not get 15% off, but you do get free shipping! How awesome is that?!

Again, let me share a friendly tip…. For those of you who order online, did you know that if you call your favorite Fluevog store, they’ll honor the 15% discount or free shipping – whatever works in your favor? Isn’t that nice?!

You know you want this….

  1. I am trying to narrow my choices for IFD just in case I decide to take advantage of the 15% off sale. Can I put shoes on layaway on IFD? Just in case I can, I’ve put the Mini Sugar, Baroque Rubens (burgundy), and possibly Hopeful Assured (camel) on my list. I’m wondering if the Assured will go on sale in July; they’re sandals so I assume so, but my worry is that my size will be gone by then. Oh well. Decisions, decisions.

    • You’ll have to check with your local dealer. I’m sure I’ve put shoes on layaway on IFD before. My spider senses say that the Assured will go on sale at some point because trendy colors usually do. Then again, the past few sales have been pretty surprising, so who knows what’s going to get marked down?!

      What color in the Sugars are you interested in? In looking your collection, I classify that as “you can do without it” because you have the Zinka and the Cece. Though the Sugars are different and your collection doesn’t have a lot of Minis, I’m not sure the Sugars (or the Zinka or Cece) will get as much play as you’d like. Just something to consider. I do love the Rubens, though. They’d be a great addition to what you already have:)

      • I was thinking of having the Sugars (in black) replace the Cece. But maybe I should actually go out and wear my Ceces sometime. Sigh. I’m so bad! I think I liked the idea of the Ceces better than the boots themselves. Not good. As they say, “Love the one you’re with.” I will try.

        I’ll ask my dealers when you and I go next week (YAY! SO EXCITED!) about putting shoes on layaway for IFD. The thing is, can they do it if the shoe is not actually at the Melrose store? Probably not. I also couldn’t use my 10% off KCRW Fringe Benefit if the shoe isn’t at the Melrose store since it’s a local program. If the Rubens aren’t available for me to try on, then I’ll just save my money for the sale and hopefully the Assured will be available! I do need a nice burgundy/red maryjane heel, though. (I don’t want to buy the red Malibrans since I already have the black.) Maybe there’s something special in store for the Fall.

        • I must confess that when you got the Cece, I was surprised. I think you were swayed by Amber No Pants because she rocks those like no tomorrow. Since you live in the desert, wearing Cece can be a little challenging. I say hey, you paid full price, you should take her out for a spin. While she may not be as “pretty” as the Sugars, she’s definitely more comfy and all-day wearable.

          Hmph. I’m not sure about the IFD discount on outside store purchases. Again, we’ll ask your dealers:)

          You never know what’s coming up for fall. It’s definitely my season of choice. Can’t wait to see what come out:)

          • i think you’re absolutely right about amber no pants influencing me … i love the way she looks in them with her dresses/skirts. sadly i do not have her leg length. i’m actually thinking of wearing them with a red dress when i sing at my recital this weekend…. oh well, i’ll consult with you in person later this week. 🙂

            and yes, i’m definitely anticipating what the fall collection will look like.
