47 Years of Manels

12 July 2011

Two things you can never have too many of: good friends and pretty shoes ♥

Last night my blog-sisters and I were invited to Manels' Private Sale held at their SM Megamall branch as a preview to [and to get first dibs on] their Anniversary Sale.


I'm not gonna lie, I haven't been inside a Manels shop for a couple of years now because when I hear of their brand before, "safe school shoes" [read: boring] immediately come to mind. I am so thankful I got invited to this event because it totally wiped away all my misconceptions!

Rows and rows of shoes, bags, and belts!
Espadrilles and flats
Aside from carrying a wide array of shoe designs for both men and women nowadays, Manels branches have also undergone a complete transformation! Instead of using boring colors in the interiors, they used bright pink (for their high-fashion women's brand Catch) and bright blue (for their men's casual line Maphisto). Cool, huh? Even more amazing is that this year, Manels is turning 47 years old! Their 50th year in the business is coming in three years so these "facelifts" are just some of the things they are doing to be stronger and fresher than ever!

To celebrate their 47th anniversary, Manels has cooked up a five days-event that will surely be enjoyed by EVERYONE:


From July 13 to 17, Manels will hold a special anniversary sale that will let you grab anything - and I mean ANYTHING - at 50% OFF! Awesome deal, right? It doesn't stop there. Anyone who will shop for five or more items will be entitled to 55% OFF on ALL items! Awesome-r! Hurry and visit the Manels branch nearest you because from what I experienced at the private sale yesterday, stocks will be going really fast!


Aside from that, you can also join Manels Nation! Click here to read more about it.

It ain't a blog event without photos with my pretty blog-mates, so:

Sarah, Ana, Pax, Reg, Honey, me, Melai, Jonver, Earth

THANK YOU FOR HAVING US, MANELS!
Here is what I took home:

I chose flat sandals just to be different this time around ;D
But I seriously want this as well:

I hope you will be mine as well! ♥
Go and reward yourself with a new pair of shoes (or a new bag, or a new belt, or new slippers... the list goes on), pop into any Manels branch nationwide from tomorrow until July 17 and prepare to be tempted to buy another one. And since everything is being sold at 50% off, then you won't have any problem shelling out for another one. And another one. And another one ;)
