Summer Soldes: Pick up some Bargains with Paris Shopping Tour
The semi-annual sales are in full swing in Paris, meaning you can pick up some fashionable finds for a fraction of the price. Even though les soldes are no longer limited by law to a twice-annual event, many Parisians continue to save their wardrobe shopping for the sale period. Need some assistance as you pound the cobblestones? We highly recommend Diane Lepicard and her team at Paris Shopping Tour. Diane can personalize an excursion based on your style and budget. Looking for some boho threads by local designers? Diane has a rolodex of unique addresses including concept stores that stock only “Made in France” apparel and jewelry. She’ll take you to visit beautifully curated shops far away from the tourist crowds. In fact, most visitors to Paris cite “shopping” as one of their main motives, and with the dollar increasingly strong against the euro, American travelers are privy to deals all year-round, also because it’s tax free with VAT refunds. Whether you’re looking for a haute couture look from the ultra-luxe boutiques on Rue Saint-Honoré, or something more budget-friendly from the city’s cool vintage shops, Diane can help. As a stylish personal shopper, Diane can also give fashion advice… if you’re looking for it. And share the skinny on all the French brands– what’s cool? what’s meh?— including those that can’t be found anywhere else. Paris Shopping Tour is completely independent and doesn’t earn commission from the stores they patronize, meaning there is no pressure to buy. The pricing for private shopping tours (1-7 people) is as follows: A half day: 280€/group (around 3 hours). A full day: 490€/group (around 6 hours). For more information and bookings, visit the website.
