It’s that time of the year when the days start getting warmer and very soon Soldes signs will start appearing everywhere in Paris. Don’t miss the most awesome sale of all if you are lucky enough to be in Paris at this time. Every chic Parisian woman knows that the best time to purchase that prized Hermès carré is when it’s on sale. ‘But Hermès is never on sale,’ you say. Ah my friend, you must know where to go and when to go.

This year’s summer sale is on from the 26th to 29th of June from 9am to 6pm, and 1st of July from 9am to 3pm. The venue is the Palais des Congrès, Hall Neuilly, with the nearest métro being Porte Maillot in the 17th arrondissement. Don’t be intimidated as entry is free to the public. Be prepared for some queueing and leave yourself plenty of time for browsing. My cousin tried to get in an hour before closing time last year and was told it was too late to enter.

Oh… and buy a carré, or two, for me while you’re there 🙂
