Now that I am no longer connected to a certain high-end retail juggernaut in the Manila, I no longer have access to the unbelievable/insane employee sales that are usually 90% off the retail price. But the next best thing for me is The BIG Outlet Sale. It is my absolute favorite sale. It is a BPI sale organized by a friend of mine and it usually runs for 3 days (Friday – Sunday) a couple of times a year . I always feel a thrill whenever it happens exactly while I’m in Manila. And I make sure to go every time.
This year my memorable finds were:
- SUBSTANCE clutches @ Php 600 each
- PUMA shorts & tees @ Php 400 each
- Cocktail rings @ Php 100 each
- VINTAGE COLE gold flats @ 800 Buy 1 Take 1
- PARKER pens you can wear around your neck @ 250 each
And my absolute fave finds were the BETSEY JOHNSON jewelry & ABS BY ALLEN SCHWARTZ jewelry. Both were up to 90% off! They are plated in real gold but priced same as Korean silver accessories we see in mall stalls. My purchases:
Must get myself a BPI Edge card before the next sale to get that additional 5% discount on most of the items! It is specifically a BPI Edge Credit Card event after all.
