When in Manila, I am always on the hunt for good quality shoes. That's because in Singapore, the prices of the leather-made ones are indeed way steep. As a routine, I would always ask my shoeholic friends.."So, any new cool store finds recently?". I was surprised when one guy (yes, guy) nonchalantly uttered "MANELS". I squished a bit and said, "Isn't that old school?" I even recalled a friend mentioned, "Basta MANELS, Leather".
Until one fine day that I have come to see another friend of mine sporting a trendy MANELS bag. Pretty catchy , I admit. She mentioned that the brand has exciting things to offer. I have passed by MANELS near my place but I did not have the urge to come in -yet. I really waited until the day that I will get pysched!
So the psyched day has finally arrived when their VP for Operations, Mark invited me to the MANELS PRIVATE SALE - An Exclusive Bloggers Event at SM Megamall.
MANELS was founded way back 1964 and it's their time to celebrate their 47th Anniversary!
Manuel Siggaoat and Nelia Villarama Siggaoat.
They absolutely stayed in the business, being one of the most recognizable brand in the retail industry. That just goes to show how dedicated they are in producing quality goods. Branding is never an easy thing to polish.
Indeed, MANELS was nostalgic. It made me recalled those times that I wear my mary janes in school. I miss the black patent leather's touch on my tiny feet. Nowadays, these MJs have become more stylish, from platform to chunky heeled ones. Hail the Lolita fashion.
MANELS is returning back to the public it's huge success by having their Anniversary Sale. Again, all items(bags, shoes, accessories) are slashed half-off the price. All items = All Branches = 50%! You don't get this everyday so better hurry and celebrate with MANELS milestone achievement.
As an added bonus, why don't you gather at least 5 of your friends to shop altogether? They are giving ALL ITEMS at 55% OFF for transactions which have five or more items. More fun, more bonus!
Get ready for some eye-candies!
